BRITISH COMMITTEE'S DICISION WOMEN'S SERVICES URGED.' &nbsp; LONDON, Tuesday,-A committee under Lord Haldane's presidency, ap- pointed to inquire into the machinery of government, has recommended that thc Cabinet should commission not more than 12 members. The Cabinet should be supplied with information in such a way as to enable it to reach ex- peditious decisions. It should also make a point of consulting all the Min- isters whose work is likely to affect its decisions. The committee, commenting upon the non-utilisation of women's services in the administrative departments and in- telligence branches, says:-"The public sorvice hitherto has been deprived of vast knowledge and fresh ideas, which, for particular purposes, would have been more valuable and more révélant than even those of the ablest men in the civil service." The committee recommends closer Parliamentary control over administra- tive departments, and the appoint- ment of Ministers, to preside over an Empire De...

WILSON EUROPE TAKING HIS MEASURE PRESIDENT'S NAVAL BLUFF DIFFERENCES BY NO MEANS BRIDGED [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 10 January 1919
WILSON EUROPE TAKING IIÍS MEASURE PRESIDENT'S NAVAL BLUFF DIFFERENCES BY NO MEANS BRIDGED Europe has not yet decided how to ¡take President Wilson. He is having ¡regal receptions and is feted every-; whero. He travels in the most sump tuous trains and steamers, attended by Allied war- leaders, princes, and statesmen. Courtesy and kindness could go no further. But this, with the massive though undemonstrative public receptions, has been more tho Allies', greeting to a gallant associated' nation than an endorsement of Dr. Wilson's policy. He has lost no oppor tunity of emphasising his policy, stand ing out as the aposffe of a new code of international morality. He stands to-day in the public imagination ns n figuro urging, imploring, and beckon ing Europe into a new condition of things in which morality will be en throned by mutual acceptance of some international tribunal's decision. Wilson's claim to the "Freedom of tho Seas" is regarded as a red herring, but it seems to havo been e...

LONDON MONEY MARKET CLEARING HOUSE FIGURES.
