German Ships Expected
to Bring Soldiers Home!
By ?Theodore ?VI. Knappen
Wir York 't'rit,UVC
WASHINGTON', March 1. At a eon
fi'i "in" held to day by Senator i In
!? rei.ti'il in I (in ' |.01 III! i"/i of COl * < ? r l.

of Operation? ItOMotor of tho Shipping
Board il '..'.. il? clclixl that th ? m my
would relea ?? 500,000 tons of shipping
to the Shipping Board within tho next
forty days and that (h?' board would,
do the best it. could with this shipping
to move cotton and other export!
freight that is accumulating nt the
docks in vast, quantities. On its part
the Shipping Board agrees to assume!
the army's contract with the French i
government to convey to France 300,- |
000 tons of railway rolling stock, chief- j
lv freight, cars.
It is the obligations of this contract
which have been chiefly responsible
for failure of the army to release ship?
ping for commercial uses faster than
it ban, as the contract called for the
delivery of 51,000 tons a month. It '
appears that France in buying the rail?
way material and equipment of the A.
E. P. agreed to take all that was manu?
factured as well as what had been ac?
tually delivered in France, and she is
in a great hurry to get, all as soon as
The Shipping Board hopes to be able
to get an extension of time from the
French government and thus make
some room for cotton as well
as other exports. Exclusive of cotton,
$100,000,000 worth of American prod?
ucts are now lying at the docks await?
ing shipping space, and the prospeel
is there will be a tremendous
shortago of shipping for the next three
months, notwithstanding the present
arrangement and the fact that the ship?
yards are now delivering an average
of two new ships a day.
The advent of 000,OIK) tons of German
shipping to be used in bringing hack
American tenons will improve tho out?
ward movement somewhat. The ships
of this fleet are now arriving in Brit
; ish and French ports, where they are
being outfitted and manned with
. American crews. The Imperator is one of
them, but she is still held Up by a
: sand bar at Bremen. These ships will
? bring home 50,000 troops a month.
| American transports will move 140,000
a month and England has contracted
to move 30,000 a month.

PARIS, March 1. The ships in Ger

j on voyages for food within a few days
unleFs there is a further delay for

the Allies will give Germany certain
credit on account of fooil which Ger
' many expects to purchase abroad and
| bring back on the ships used by the
?Allies for carrying troops homeward
LONDON, March I. The condition
of the German merchant ships which
ultimately will be used to transport
American troop- homeward is surpris
I irigly good, in the opinion of the
! United States naval commission re?
ce! .;, sent to survey them. Tt ts In

W ?is Nurse at To?I; Says Troops
Are Only Homesick
The supreme desire of the American
soldiers in France was to see their

said yesterday at the Polyclinic Hos

, has been a nurse at Toul. She re
i turned Friday on account of ill health
I and expects to start for her borne in
Denver, Col,, in a few days.
"Reports of unfavorable camp con
, ditions are untrue," she said. "1 can?
not understand where the criticism
. started, because the soldiers are satis?
fied with things as they are. Of
course there are a few homesick ones.
The desire most often expressed is a
I wish to see mother."
