U. S. WILL NOT ENTER WAR
j Berlin. Via London, May 21.—Miss j
Jaue Addams has arrived in this city to i
present to the Foreijn Office resolutions j
| adopted at the women's peace confer '
jenee held recently at The Hague. She I
j expects to have a conference with For-!
! eign Minister Gagow before Sunday and j
■ possibly to see Chancellor Von Beth !
. mann-Hollweg as well. She lunehed !
! yesterday with United States Ambassa
dor Gerard, who, it 's understood, will
assist her in an unofficial capacity.
Miss Addams will go next to Vienna
and then to Berne and Paris upon the
;sam« mission. She expressed the belief
; tq-day that there need be no fear of
i serious eventualities between the Unit- !■
! ed States and Germany,
i "President Wilson and Secretary
| Bryan both are firmly opposed to war, f 'l
| she said. "It seems as though t'ho j
whole world has gone crazy. There
must be some little spot left where rea- 1
| son will rule."
I While under normal conditions unoffi- I
| i ial visits of women to foreigu govern-!
, ments in the interests of "peace not;
, only are fruitless, but are considered:
| foolish, the present plan, Miss Addams'l
! declared, is meeting with a reasonable
measure of success.
