Anovel calculation in connection a
with the war has been made by John g
irman, instructor' in the Far East s,
Giarden Golf course ar, the Vanderbilt p
Hotel. "For. some time I have worked h
over the figures that have come up in y
the war," said Forman yesterday, "and fl
possibly - this next month may bring t
about some surprises when you take f
into consideration the significance of
six curious comparisons and citations, I
which I shall give you.
"The Kaiser is the man who started e
the war; Serbia is the country where
the war started. There are six letters I
in each of these words, mark you, and
if written together and divided In
halves, these two halves will also spell
'Kaiser' and 'Serbia' thus:

Kaiser is written with each letter fol
lowed by the number of its place in the
alphabet, and after these numbers is

"Also note that when the Kaiser
started the warl he was aged 55 years
and 6 months, (666 months), Wihieh
