The opportunity of contrasting the soldier and civilian reaction to the Franco-German controversy in the Ruhr will be given to every Union member next month for Major General Henry T. Allen will speak at the Union November 2 on "Europe as I Saw It," and Mr. A. G. Alley '01 probably November 20 on "The Battle for the Ruhr, the Rhine, and the Saar."
General Allen was commander-in-chief of the American army of occupation in the Rhineland. It is true that Mr. Alley was a second Heutenant on special duty during the war, but on the whole his attitude is that of the civilian and student. He spent much of his time in Europe before the war, and since, has been there twice his last trip being made last summer.
Mr. Alley has had interviews and discussions with many prominent men abroad; in Vienna with the Austrian ministers: at the Hague with Judge John Bassett Moore. American delegate on the Permanent Court of International Justice: in Geneva with the world's diplomats concerning the Greece-Italian controversy over Corfa. His experience is broad and varied, and he is said to be a pungent and aggressive speaker.
