race for girls under 15. and although
she was not well enough to swim in
the preliminaries on Wednesday
night, she was not allowed to swim
in the finals last night because of a
protest of Miss Ruth Sucker.
Much dispute was started when the

zle. Capt Britton fired his gun two
laps too early and the swimmers con
sequently stopped too early. Some
say that Britton was at fault, others
that those counting were at fault, and
still others that the captains of the
team were at fault because they did
not provide their own men to count
for their swimmers.

WASHINGTON, D. C Aug.ll SecreUry of War Baker has is
sued the following sUtement:
In one of the morning newspapers members of the party of of
ficers just returned from France are credited with an expression of
opinion to the effect that the German line on the western front in
France is impregnable. I have succeeded in reaching all the mem
bers of the military mission and am assured that no one of them has
expressed an opinion either to a newspaper man or to anybody else,
including his oVn associates on the mission. The alleged expression
therefore Is wholly without foundation.
"The members of the miliUry mission were sent abroad to study
technical questions. They were accorded the fullest opportunity by
both the British and French governments to complete their study,
and were given opportunity to observe actual conditions at the front.
The mission is unanimous in its praise of the splendid morale of
the allied forces on the western front, and while it shares the gen
eral realization of the gravity of this war. it returned without any
pessimistic opinion whatever as to the final outcome.
