PROPAGANDA WORK BEGAN i
BEfORE THE WAR
Becker Reveals Germany's ; cheme to
WELDING THE EVIDENCE
Von Skal Agreed in 1909 to Do Ber
lin's Bidding, Says State
New York, Aug. 18.--A detailed
statement intended to show some ram
ifications of Germany's scheme to in
'clude America in a world-wide propa
ganda campaign launched even he
fore the outbreak of the war was is
sued tonight by Alfred L. Becker, dep
uty State attorney general, who de
clared his department is fast "weld
ing tpgether the eyidence."
Geb. von Skal, 'of New York, who
worked under Capt. Franz von Papen,
military attache of the German em
bassy, had been "arraigned" as early,
as 1909, he had admitted, acording to
"I happened to be in Berlin in 1909
anal met the chief of the intelligence
office," Mr. Becker says von Skal
stated, "Ho. told me he had often
thought of men, because if a war
broke out, they wanted to have some
body here in the military attache's of
fice who could be in touch with the
press and who could tell them what
might be (lone with the press."
Von Skal, who is a a naturalized
American, agreed to do the work as
long as America did not become in
volved in any war, according to Mr.
Propaganda in Turkey
Evidence which has been secured,
Mr. Becker declared, showing Ger
many began propaganda work in
Turkey at least a year before war was
declared on France ,and Russia.
Sali Gurdji, now living in New
York, but formerly president of the
Ottoman Telegraph Agency, the offi
cial news organization of the Turkish
Government, was approached by the
German ambassador in Constantinople
and offered 40,000 marks to exploit
German ;ronaganda through the
agency. He later was offered 100,000
marks, but refused both offers.
Then according to Mr. Becker, he
was summoned before the chief of po
lice and ordered to close his agency,
which was taken over by the German
agents. Gurdji fled for his life and it!
took all the skill of neutral diplomats
to save the lives of his family.
In America, Mr. Becker said, the
propaganda work was actually started
as soon as Dr. Bernard Dernberg ar
rived here. Mr. Becker said he has
traced 40,000 as paid in 1915 from the
joint accounts of Dr. Heinrich F. Al
bert, former financial attache of the
German embassy, and former ambas
sador von Bernstorff to barious al
AUSTRIA REPORTED ON
BRINK OF STARVATION
London, Aug. 18.--Turnips, weeds, W
nettles, and an occasional sick dog, e
costing $25, form the chief food for
the great bulk of Austria-Hungary's
population, according to a comprehen
sive review of the economic situation
in the dual monarchy by a frontier
correspondent of the Daily Express.
Thousands of deaths occur weekly as
a result of underfeeding or actual
starvation. The economic situatio
in Germany is described as almost
equally bad. It is declared doubtful if
Austria-Hungary can last through
another winter without an empire
wide hunger revolution.
A few ounces of indigestible bread,
weeds and nettles, called "spinach
substitute," constitute the daily dole
for which tens of thousands of Vienna
men, women and children arc scram
bling. Factories are idle. The weork
ers have not the strength to work.
Mail trains passing through coun
try stations i'e besieged by mobs of
half-starved villagers begging and
fighting for a few crumbs from the
tables in the (lining cars. Even the
crowded hospitals are short of food.
TPhe daily papers print many col
umns of advertisements inserted by
starving citizens. A feather bolster,
is offered for ten poundls of flour;
baby clothes and bed linen for drip
ping; a winter jacket for a coul
of eggs. ul
.Germany here:elf, reciuced to starva
tion rations, is unable to help her ally,
Some of the stock of food that had
been reserved for the German army
has been sent to Austria-Hungary toI
avert revolt in the dual monarchy, but
this supply was insignmficant an the

.Meanwhile the rien have little or
no trouble securing food, though at
exorbitant prices. Smugglers risk
their lives bringing butter and bacon

bought for 18 cents a piece.
