President Wilson last week• vetoed the resolution of Congress declaring

that America was no longer at war with Germany. In the message announcing his decision, he said that this method of making peace " would place an ineffaceable stain upon the gallantry and honour -" of America. An attempt in the Rouge of Representatives to override the President's veto failed for lack of a two-thirds majority. America thus remains at war.
