"The Skipper" is Capt. Robert I).

months before America entered the
war. The Winslow was captured by
the German raider Wolff, and Cap
tain Trudget was a prisoner on board
the Wolff for eight months before she
finally returned to Kiel and he was
put in it caill).

his story. "When I get back to SanI

"It was almost two yealrs ago whllen
I was hired by an agent in Australia
to take some fire brick, petrol and
food to San Francisco, after I'd madi'
a trip fromi Humholdt down to the
South Seas. It was my last trill I'd
decided then, because I told the boss
I was going to retire. lIe wanted me
to go just once niore, and that's how
I happeneld to get caught.
"W'ell, off the Samoa islands we
were sighted by the Wolff, and told
to surrender. WVhiat couldl we do? I
wasn't any fighting ship, and had no
guns. So they took us off, loaded ou0l
cargo into the Wolff and fired ii;
shots into the old Winslow. lEven
then she wouldn't go down. I think
the cargo wa; mleant for the Wolff,
because they needed fuel anld food,
m and tire brick to repair a boiler they
had burnt out.
"Then we started our eighl
ilmonths' cruise. First they sailed
around Africa, attacking defenseless
vessels wherever they found thels.
The Wolff was equipped with fine
wireless instruments, and they could
detect lighting ships at long dis
tances. Tilthe Wolff kept away frojm
fighting ships, and we never had a
fight during the entire cruise.
"'Altogether they captured and
sunk 14 defenseless boats between
Salloa and around Africa, across to
South America, and up the coast al
most to Iceland. The Germans want
ed to go north of Iceland and along
Scandinavia toward home, but the
ice floes wouldn't allow it. So they
took a chance south of Iceland and
pulled up just north of Denmark.

more than 400 mines around Aus

pamphlets accused the German gov
ernment of beginning the war. Dur
ing his imprisonment he was elected
to the reichstag from Spandau.
After being in prison two years
and two months, he was released.
When the Ebert government had
been in existence only a few days,
Dr. Liebknecht became leader of a
radical socialist 'faction, known as
the Spartacus element. The rising
tide of radicalism reached its caest
during the first week of January,
when the Spartacans came into
armed conflict with troops loyal to
the Ebert government. After a week
of fighting, the Spartacans were de
feated. During the conflict it was
reported several times that Dr. Lieb
knecht had been killed.
Dr. Liebknecht's arrest followed.
Dr. Rosa Luxemburg was formerly
principal editor of the Vorwaerts,
the organ of the German socialists.
She often came into conflict with the
authorities. When the revolution
broke out in Berlin early in Novem
ber, she was reputed to be the leader
of the most violent group of social
ists. Later she seconded Dr. Lieb
knecht in his efforts to organize the
Spartacus element, although she
strenuously opposed Dr. Liebknecht's
proposal that elections for the na
tional assembly be held at once. Het
arrest was reported on Tuesday.
Berlin, Thursday, Jan. 16.-Rosa
Luxemburg was dubbed "the strong
est woman in Germany," but con
trary to the general impression she
did not have an active personal part
in the staging of the revolutionary
movements in Kiel and Berlin, as sh"
was in prison until a few days before
the outbreaks of November. How
ever, she lost no time in entering the
fray and in a nine weeks' campaign
she became even more radical than
Dr. Liebknecht, earning the title of
"high priestess of bolshevism."
Liebknecht Shot Dead;
Rosa Luxemburg Lynched
(Special United Press Wire.)
Berlin, Jan. 18.--Karl Liebknecht,
the most drastic figure in Germany,
was shot dead while trying to es
cape from a heavy escort of govern
ment troops, it is learned. At the
same time his chief lieutenant, Rosa
Luxemburg, was lynched by a mob.
The Spartacan leader, who fell just
short of overthrowing the govern
ment by a country-wide revolution,
was trapped in his home and taken
prisoner, together with his sons. The
latter were taken to jail.
Death of Liebknecht

Basle, Jan. 18.-The Frankfurter

of Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Lux
