The Supreme Council of the Allies met in Paris on

Monday and is still sitting as we write on Thursday. It decided on Tuesday to deal with the Near East at a later conference in London, to which Greek and Turkish delegates will be invited. The Allies are said to have agreed that Germany shall have five months within which to complete her disarmament. It is also reported that the Allies are disposed to fix by May 1st the total amount of reparation to be required of Germany. The unofficial versions of the Council's proceedings vary widely, according to the political views of the different newspapers, and must not be taken too seriously. The Allies decided on Wednesday to recognize Esthonie. and Latvia as sovereign States, and to consider hereafter the claims of Georgia and Lithuania to be recognized.
