best authorities at the Navy Depart- i
ment, who declare that it is quite feas- !
ible for Germany to send to American
coasts sufficient underwater boats to ;
permit to operate continuously.
This could be done, navy men point |
cut, by employing a fleet of thirty sub- |

Red Cross Starts
Drive for 25,000
Registered Nurses ;
Stirring Appeal Made to;
Young Women of the
Red Cross workers yesterday plas
tered the city with posters that appeal >
for 25,000 registered nurses for army j
service. Here and there throughout
the greater city recruiting booths were j
erected. In the entire United States !
there are only 98,000 registered nurses.
which means that one of every four j
qualified women must volunteer if the I
American wounded are to be carm? for. i
"Nurses, the call from No Man's
Land is 'Come across,' " reads one of j
the poster appeals hung in windows I
and pasted on blank walls. It was ad- j
dressed not only to women who are |
now in actual practice, but to nurses
who, perhaps, have been married or fur j
other reasons have gotten out of touch
with their profession.
Surgeon General Gorgas Appeals
Surgeon General Gorgas in a letter j
to the Red Cross expressed the army's |
need of nurses in the following pawi- i
"No more urgent need exists to-day
and no factor can be more important j
in the winning of this war than ade
q?ate care of our sick and wounded.
Nurses who respond will have the in
finite satisfaction of knowing that they :
are lessening the sufferings of the men
of their own country; those bound by
ties of blood friendship and brother?
hood. Nurses of America, your coun?
try calls you."
In each of the recruiting booths
there were stationed one army nurse, !
one civilian nurse and one soldier. ;
They told their story in a few words. ;
In substance, it was: "America called
her men to fight. She now calls her
women to help her righting men. En
roll for service if you are a nurse. Re?
lease a nurse if you employ one. Enter '?
a training school to become one if you |
To registered nurses the worke*s in
these booths explained that Red Cross j
nurses definitely assigned to war ser- ;
vice become thereby part of the mili?
tary establishment of the United
States. Although they remain Red
Cross nurses their papers are trans
ferred to the army or navy depart- |
ment, which thereupon assumes juris- '
diction and issues orders and instruc- ,
tions covering assignments to duty ;
and details of transportation.
Pay of Nurses
They were also told that enrolled j
Red Cross nurses when called into
service with the army or navy will '.
receive $50 a month in the United
States and $60 a month elsewhere, plus
maintenance and travelling expenses. '

So great is the need for trained
women that the Red Cross has lowered

Skipper of Rio

Sunk His Craft
Captain John McKenzie, of the i
steamship Pinar del Rio, sunk Satur?
day by a German submarine, arrived |
here yesterday on a fruit steamship i
accompanied by his mate and fifteen of j
Tne skipper said he would be will- j
ing to give details of the sinking had
it not been for instructions from the
government to tell nothing of bis ex
"We left Cuba last Tuesday," he
said, "and were informed at the time
that there were submarines operating
along the Atlantic coast. It was bad
information, but I was not worried
about it. On Saturday at 8:35 A. M. a
submarine which seemed to have come
from nowhere moved off the starboard
bow and signalled us to stop. I
thought at first it was an American
patrol. We were not alarmed. There
was no one on the submariners deck
at the time. She was coming up
slowly. When she was up in the
water about as high as she could get
a signal? was hoisted signifying 'Heave
to and abandon ship.'
"We heaved to and presently the,!
submarine came in closer. An office'r
came up on deck and shouted to us to
get together all we cared to save and
be quick about it. We promptly obeyed
"We put off in two lifeboats, the
mate and myself and fifteen men in
one and sixteen of the crew in another.
My boat moved over to the U-boat and
%ve asked the skipper what ne:<t was
wanted of us. He replied by asking
if we had taken off everything that
belonged to us. We hadn't time to
take all, but we told him we had and
he shouted in English, 'All right, get
away from here and good bye to you.
We pulled away and soon the U-boat
began firing on our vessel and sank
her. We kept pulling away all the
while, but we had seen what was going
on. When this task was over the
U-boat moved to the southeast and
slowly submerged. That is all we saw
"In my hurry I left $300 aboard. I
suppose the German would have given
me time to have taken that money if 1
hadn't been so quick, but I forgot about
it in the lush and now it is lost."
The skipper said that he and his
men were picked up by a freighter and
turned over to the Mantes life saving
crew on the Virginia coast and sub?
sequently they were put aboard the
vessel that brought them here yester?
day. With the arrival of the skipper

A steamship from the Mediterranean,
formerly a Hamburg-American liner
and now operated by the United States
Shipping Board, came to port yester?

that had been in trouble. She brought
over twenty-six members of the crew
of the American freighter Mauban,
which was sunk by submarines off the
Italian coast three weeks ago, and
thirty members of the crew of the
City of Wilmington, which burned to
the water's edge and was abandoned
off the North African coast. Also she
brought over from Gibraltar twelve of
the crew of the City of Pensacola,
which was sunk by subr^nrines in the

The Mauban was a vessel of 1,253

Clemenceau Paper Asks if
Berlin Wants to Bolshe
vize Whole Entente
(By Cable to the Courrier des Etats Unis)
PARIS, June 10.?"L'Homme Libre,"
Premier Clem?nceau's newspaper, says
in regard to the German peace offen?
"Who could desire peace more than
we? Do we not keep up this war solely
for the sake of peace'.' Was it not in
July, 1914, we, the Allies, did every?
thing to maintain it? And if there is
no longer peace, if we were compelled
to wage war, it is because it was neces?
sary, come what may, to oppose the
league of free peoples to the terrible
aggression of the vandals and conquer?
ors. We are still on our feet before
their invasion and refuse to deliver to
them, without guarantees, without as?
surances and witnout reparations, the
fate of a world that only owes its sal?
vation to our soldiers.
"Who, then, could blame us for not
throwing ourselves bleatrng under the
same teeth which tear alike the scraps
of paper of treaties and the mos; e.e
mentary liberties of nations?
"Do they want us to Bolshevizc the
whole Entente in imitation of Russia?
Do they-think it suffices to be invited
to a 'peace talk' v ithout any prelimi?
nary understandings, to surrender our?
selves with hands and feet tied to a Ger?
many that until now has remained dea*
not only to the suggestions of Presi?

propositions formulated by certain of
their own representatives in the Reichs?
"This would be too much, recogniz?
ing that the aggressor is the master of
the hour. But we also do not want to
permit hil militarism to say that it is
we who systematically are opposed to
peace. It is this trap that must be
avoided. We must not furnish to the
generals of the Kaiser the excuse for
justifying to the eyes of the.r strangely
abused peoples a prolongation of their
"Let Germany speak, we are ready
to listen. Much as we resist cunning
propositions of indefinite conversa?
tions, ve hasten to l<?arn precisely
what she wants to have examined,
what conditions she puts for the ces?
sation of her piracy and aggressi<yi.
"From such an inquiry only good can
result for us; our hands are clean, our
cause is just, we want nothing else
but what M. Clemenceau one day de?
fined as a 'just and lasting peace.' We
shall see if such a peace is proposed
to us. To the broad daylight then,
