. Plana for a league of hospitals in
Allied countries, chief of which is to
h* a memorial hospital to Edith Cavell,
tn Brussels, were announced last night
by Col. Antoine de Page, head of the
Belgian Red Cross, who is touring
America in the interests of the mem?
orial hospitals. For nine years before

clinic in Brussels, and later head of

Mme. De Page was drowned on the
Lusitania while taking relief funds to
Belgium from America. Her body was
washed ashore on the Irish coast and
buried on the beach at La Panne, four
miles back of the Belgian lines, where
Dr. De Page had his headquarters.
In memui-y of Marie Do Page and
Edith Cavell, both victims of German
warfare, it is planned to erect The
Edith Cavell-Marie De Page Hospital
To Continue War Methods
It is to be dedicated to the continua?
tion of the methods of surgery de?
veloped during the war. Surgeons from
Allied countries may go there for ad?
vanced research work instead of to
Germany as before the war. Allied
hospitals in other non-Teutonic coun?
tries will welcome research workers
from hospitals in the league.
Already the project has been
launched in Great Britain, where
Premier Lloyd George and Herbert
Asquith are sponsoring the British
memorial. In their tour of America.
which began at Boston and will take
them to the Pacific Coast, Dr. De Page
and hi3 companion, Captain Joseph
Van de Velde, are interesting Ameri?
can medical men in the international
hospital project. No definite inter?

Fund Started in England
"The fund already started in Eng?
land to defray half the cost of the
Brussels hospital,'1 said Colonel De
Page last night at the WaldorfiAs
toria, "leaves half the cost to be borne
by my country. Belgium, however, is
too poo~ to contribute ti\\ the other
.aal"', and it is my hope that 1 will be
able to interest America in this proj?
The league of hospitals, while oper?
ating at all times for the advance?-ent
?f aurgery in Allied countries, will at
the same time be a barrier against (ler?
nten scientists, who are to be barred
from these Allied laboratories.
Dr. De Page is professor of surgery
at the University of Br?ssels. He
wears eight service bars, indicating
four years of service with the Belgian,
army. He does not wear the eight Al?
lied decorations, which have been be?
stowed upon him. Early 'n the war,
with the help of the American Rod I
Cross, he built a larg> hospital at
Vinckem, on the Yser, six miles from
the front lines. People said it was a
foolhardy enterprise, which could be
?wiped out by a small German advance,
but in the Allied advance last Septem?
ber and October this hospital was the
salvation of the Belgian army.
Soma of His Successes
In this hospital his advanced sur-j
gical methods astounded the medicalI
work Two weeks after amputation.!
wounc ed soldiers were walking about
on ariiticial legs. Dr. DePage said last1
nighg? that he personally knew of;
many cases where men who had lost
an arm or two Were at work with tools
?fteen day3 later.
He explained that the muscles ad?
joining the artificial limb were utilized
before they had time to stiffen and
Dr. DePage will explain some of the
technical features of his work and in?
terest local surgeons in the interna?
tional league of hospitals at 4 o'clock
this atfernoon at the New York Hos?
pital, S West 16th Street. He will lec?

Red Editor Is Held
For Attack on Loan
Arrest of Jacob Itxickson, of
"Freedom" Said to Herald
D'ive on Bolshevik Press
A i ederal campaign designed to re?
move the menace of the radical Bol-:
ahevik publications, was started yes.ter-i
day, when Afent Edward Newman, of
the Department of Justice, took in cus?
tody Jacob Itzickson, one of the mem?
bers of the "Freedom Group," which
?ablisl.es a monthly called "Freedom."
tzickson, who boasts that he is an
anarchist, was held in $5,000 by United
States Commissioner Hitchcock for the
Federal grand jury, on a complaint
which charges him with publishing and
circulating the magazine with intent to
abstract and impede the sale of Vic?
The offending editorial from "Free?
dom" was made part of the complaint
by United State? Attorney Joyce, who
has charge of the prosecution. It read:

"Go ahead! Subscribe to the Vic?
tory Loan and provide necessities for;

get ??me democracy in your shop."
At the hearing Itzickson demanded
? formal examination, though he said
that If Commissioner Hitchcock would

Here Is Protested
Complaints on Behalf of
| Its Members to Official
of Telephone Company
jj The Merchants' Association of New
IjYork has sent a letter to P. H. Bethell,
?Ivice-president of the New York Tele?
phone Company, complaining on behalf
of its members of the condition of the
! telephone service. The association says
?'it has received numerous written com
?plaints from its members.
The complaints, some of which the
'Merchants' Association quotes in its
'letter, take the view that the telephone
! servico never has been as bad ns at
I present. Many merchants say that their
I service is growing worse daily. Several
?complain that perishable commodities
i ore endangered by the service, which
ithey classify ns wretched. A copy of
la letter addressed to the company by
| a member of the association says:
"Yesterday and the clay before our
telephone servico continued to bo so
aggravating as to be almost worse than
useless, and on both days we finally
reached the trafflce manager's office,
as you suggested that we should, only
to find that she seemed to excuse en?
tirely the abominable service that we
had had from the operators.
"Yesterday I, myself, personally
timed my efforts to attract the atten?
tion of central on two different occa?
sions, the first at about 11:25 and the
second at 12:41.
"The first time I failed to get cen?
tral after a continuous effort of
sever, and one-half minutes, and finally
gave- up the attempt in disgust. The
second time I reached central, after
a continuous effort of five minutes.
It was after the latter experience that
I got in touch with the traffic manager.
The previous day my brother was
seven minutes trying to get the op?
erator and seven minutes more getting
a connection with the traffic manager,
only to be told when the latter con?
nection was made that the operators
were doing the best that they could
under a tremendous rush of business."
Some time ago the Merchants' As?
sociation lodged a similar complaint
with the New York Telephone Com?
pany, and the answer given was that
war conditions and increased volume of
business, with decreased help, necessi?
tated a declino in the service. The
Merchants' Association points out that
such is no longer the proper excuse
and an explanation is asked.

j that any oversubscription necessary to

? $10,000 or less, would be accepted. If
j each of the 15,000,000 persons who sub
, scribed, according to estimates, took
1 $10,000 of bonds, the Treasury Depart

' ' scription, would be compelled to issue
j $15,000,000.000 of Victory notes. In all
I the Liberty Loans except the first, over
' subscriptions were accepted.
! j Secretary Glass, at the outset of the

1 "The issue will be limited to $4,500,
j 000,000, except as it may be necessary

will be rejected, and alotments made

scriptions up to and including $10,000.

marked revulsion of sentiment among

their eyes have been opened to the

on tho mere possession of hard cider,
wine and other alcoholic beverages, as
well as their sale.
The statement follows:
"Since the Internal Revenue Bureau

to which all persons making intoxicat?
ing beverages at home will be subject
farmers throughout tho country are be?
ginning to see that nation-wide prohi?
bition will affect them in a way they
; had not hitherto fully realized. The
; housewife who has been putting away
? n littl? home-made wine every year
from grapes she gathered with her own
hands from the home garden, and the
farmer who has been squeezing enough
apples from his own orchard to lay
aside a family jug of cider, aro be
finning to realize that they will be
Ust as guilty of violating the law as
the bootlegger or blind tiger.
Home-Made Wine Barred
"The matter has been left to the De
i partment of Justice for decision. As
' sistant Attorney General Frierson, who
j has charge of enforcement, is quoted
as having said that the Department of
Justice does not advise the public as
to what is legal and what is not legal.
! That is a question upon which every
1 person must seek legal advice. Tho
Department of Justice merely advises
the other departments of government
when its opinions aro asked, and also
sends instructions to the District At?
"On home-mado products other than
cider, such as the so-called 'dry beer,'
