I Heartless Butchery
Of Unspeakable Hun Graphically Told
By Wesley Frost.
Col. Wesley Frost, son of President
Frost, of Berea College, is delivering
addresses at various points in the
country, telling of the barbarism of
the Germans, how they joked while
the victims of their submarines were
drowning and took pictures of them
to send back to their sweethearts.
Col. Frost was American Consul at
Queenstown, Ireland, and administer
ed to the survivors of the Lusitania
The picture he gives of the German
is that of his ancestor, the Hun, with
out the veil of civilization and educa
tion the Hun who would stoop to the
lowest depths imaginable and com
mit the most dastardly deeds to ac-.
complish his purpose.
"Whatever your opinion may be as
to the English navy," he said in a re
cent address, "I want you to join with
me here and now in saying 'All honor
to the gallant British navy, which,
night and day, year in and year out,
has been tirelessly and fearlessly
hunting down the coyotes of the sea."
In making his talks Mr. Frost also
shews a number of lantern slides with
the pictures of the victims of the Ger
man submarine campaign of fright
fulness, referring to them, as the
"flower of German kultur."
"I am a man of one song," said
Mr. Frost. "Since the nightmare at
tending the rescue of victims of the
Lusitania and the Arabic I can think
and talk of nothing else." He said
that sinking of the Lusitania probably
made the greatest impression on the
American people, but that it was only
one of the eighty-one cases he had
"I can name you case after case,"
the speaker said, "when even harm
less sailing craft have been forced to
heave to and make submission, like a
small dog that turns upon its back
and raises its paw, then mercilessly
pounded with gunfire, after becoming
a flaming inferno."
Mr. Frost told fcf the sinking of the
Lusitania, causing the murder of more
than one hundred Americans, and of
the facts he had obtained about the
death of prominent citizens of the
United States, who went down with
the ship, victims of the Kajserfsir.
bition to conquer the world. (,
He said that Elbert Hubbard clung
to a cylindrical teel drum broken off
from a lifecraft and as often as he
was able to, climbed upon it. It rolled
and toppled him off on the opposite
side until the great philosopher gave
way to shock and exposure.
"I was there when the ghostly pro
session of rescue boats carrying the
living and dead touched the water
front," he said. "Boat after boat
came up out of the darkness discharg
ing bruised and shuddering women,
maimed and half-naked men, and a
few wide-eyed little children.
"Frenzied women begged me to find
their husbands. Men went ceaselessly
from group to group looking for a lost
daughter, brother and in some cases
for an American bride.
"Every voice in that great throng
spoke in instinctive undertones varied
only here and there by smothered
sobbing. Much has been said by the
German agents of the warning to un
armed vessels before they were tor
pedoed. This would be a joke if it
were not a tragedy. This warning,"
he said, "usually consists of bombard
ining the wretched victims without
pause or pity. Men and women are
mangled by shell fire after they have
surrender and are doing their utmost
to give obedience to the submarines."
The following instance is given by
Mr. Frost as a typical warning given
by the Germans before they sink an
"The Madura, a little Russian bark,
cut down her mainsail at the sub
marine's first shot. It was done to
show submission. But when the life
boats were rescued it was a perfect
shambles. The captain, a black
bearded Finn, sat in the sternsheets
with his wife, and at their feet lay
t'o dead sailors, weltering in their
own blood. Another was just gasping
Vis last breath. These inoffensive
workingmen were slaughtered while
trying to fulfill the submarine's de

man barbarity and inhumanity told
by Mr. Frost was when the German
captors earned an American mer
chant officer back on his ship to touch
off the bombs that sent it to the bot
tom. Submarine officers amused
themselves by taking pictures to send
home to their sweethearts while 12
men were drowning.
"The full infamy of the German
practice of Jeserting survivors in open
boats on the sea cannot be caught
until you know that the submarines
often refuse to tow them to land
when weather conditions and every
circumstance is favorable. Germany's
submarine guilt the basis of the
American declaration of war hangs
upon four points," Mr. Frost stated.
"Torpedoing without warning when
warning could safely be given."
"Refusing tc tow boats even under
the most favorable conditions.
"Delaying until nieht fall the de
struction which could more humanely
be done by day.
"Finally, the pitiless shellintr of
ships which have surrendered and
sought for mercy."
Notes From The Normal
A "BACKWARDS" PARTY.
One of the very jolliest evenings
that have been enjoyed in the school
this year was spent last Saturday
evening at Sullivan Hall.
The Y. W. C. A. is always looking
but for the pleasure and entertain
ment of its members and Saturday
evening marked the beginning of a
series of rather unique birthday par
ties which will be looked forward to
sometime during each month with no
little eogerness. The party Saturday
evening was to celebrate the birth
days of all members that occur in Oc
tober. These members were honor
guests and were allowed to invite
one guest outside the organization.
The affair was announced as a
"Backwards" party, and those attend
ing were requested to come dressed
"backwards," to walk "backwards"
and play "backwards." Every one
entered into the spirit of the idea
with such good will that no one ap
peared without being dressed for the
occasion according to request Rarely
has a scene of more merriment been
witnessed that that which presented
itself when the guests and friends
be--vio assemble. They were ush-

room, where the party was held, past
ghostly figures under dimmed lights,
passing the "Fortune Tellers" fodder
hut, over soft, billowy treading spaces
and out onto firmer footing into
a maze of entanglements on the large
play room floor walking "backwards"
all the while and with no light on their
pathway save the varying flicker em
anating from the grinning faces of
jack o' lanterns scattered about the
The piano was played "backwards,"
the "ghost orchestra" performed in
the same fashion and partakers in all
games followed the reverted order.
Every turn and each new situation
brought peals of laughter. The en
tire evening was a successful round
of fun and frolic. Refreshments
were served at the close of the enter
tainment and great interest centered
in the cutting of the large birthday
cake. Each "birthday" honor guest
cut the cake for herself and her in
vited guest, the invited guest making
two wishes for her friends one of
which was kept secret and the other
given out. As the last wish was
made a candle was blown out to in
sure its realization. This afforded
an opportunity for the play of wit
and humor and rounds of laughter
and applause greeted each new wish.
Miss Ella Hanawalt, Miss Kath
leen Sullivan, Miss Jeanette rates.
Miss Mabel Ruth Coates, and Miss
Alice Petty were the outside guests.
