GERARD HOME HAS NO MES-
SAGE FROM GERMANY
Long Branch, N. J., Oct 10. Am
bassador Gerard, who arrived in New
York this morning, bears no message
from Kaiser Wilhelm to President
Wilson suggesting American inter
cession on behalf of peace.
Nor does he come for the special
purposes of discussing with the pres
ident reported revival of the subma
rine menace. It may be stated posi
tively Qerard's trip to this country is
made entirely at the suggestion of
Sec'y of State Lansing in order to
give to the American ambassador "a
much-needed vacation." As a mat-
ter of fact, this invitation to come"
home didn't reach Gerard until
shortly before his ship sailed. He
was in Copenhagen at the time mak
ing preparations for Mrs. Gerard's
trip back to this country.
No date has been set for Gerard to
see the president -here. The president
leaves for Indianapolis early tomor
row evening and will make two ad
dresses there Thursday. He returns
late Friday, so it is likely Gerard will
not see him before next week.
Sec'y Lansing comes to Shadow
Lawn late today to confer with the
president, and owing to the activi
ties of the German submarine U-53
along the American coast Sunday his
visit has aroused great interest.
BOSTON RED SOX PRESIDENT
SAME OLD JOE
Boston, Oct 10. Sec'y Edwin L.
Riley of the Red Sox today received
a letter from President J. J. Lannin of
that club, now in Brooklyn, that "his
services were no longer required."
The letter of dismissal from the
world's champions was like a bolt
from a clear sky both to the fans and
President Lannin gave no explana
tion in his letter and Riley refused
to comment beyond the fact that if
any statement was forthcoming it
would be from the Red Sox office.
