"''ravelers intending to embark on
the Atlantic voyage," rea(d the adver
tiseenit, "are reminded that a state
of war exists between Gerinany andl
her allies and Great Britain and her
allics; that the zone of war includes
the waters a(ljacent to the British
Isles; that in accordanec with formal
notice given by the imperial govern
inent, vessels fiying the flag of Great
Britain or any of her allies are liable
to destruction in those waters and
that travelers sailing from the war
zone on ships of Great Britain or her
allies do so at their own risk."
This afternoon and tonight anxious
friends and relatives of the Lusitania's
passengers besinged lie Cunard of
ties and the scene recalled those
when the Titanic sank three years ago.
