Only 53 Lost
On Moldavia;
Others Landed
jfe, Officers Among the
Missing; Survivors at
British Port
Troops Laughing
When in Boats
Discipline Splendid, Says
U. S. Captain; U-Boat
Not Sighted
LONDON", May 25.- With the excep?
tion of fifty-three American soldiers,
,;| the persons on board the British
reopship Moldavia, which was torpe
ed and sunk Thursday morning, were
l<*ed and have been landed at a south
British port. No officers' names
ire among the list of missing and it
''contains the names of omly two non?
commissioned officers.
Less than a quarter of an hour after
the Moldavia had been torpedoed off
the southeast coast of England on
Thursday morning, virtually every man
had gone* over the sides of the vessel
into the lifeboats.
Edwin and Clyde Bosley, of North
Troy, Vt., leaped from the deck and
were drowned. Had it not been for
this the losses would have been con?
fined to those killed by the explosion
of the torpedo.
Thought Ship Was Turning Qv??r
The Bosley brothers were on guard
when the ship was struck. There was
t sharp list, and they evidently be?
lieved she was turning over. Search
was made for them, but they were not
wen after they jumped overboard.
The Moldavia was moving forward
steadily 'on a smooth sea and was al?
most within sipht of its destination
when the torpedo crashed into the
boat's side. The big vessel listed
sharply. Destroyers began rushing
alongside and fore and aft in an en?
deavor to find a trace of the submarine.
Although they prevented the- U-boat
from reappearing, it is not known
whether a hit was scored by the depth
charges, *^hich were dropped in a circle
around the point from which the tor?
pedo was sent.
Captain Johnson, an American infan?
try officer, who was on board the Mol?
davia, gave a "Daily Telegraph" repre
stntativ? this account of the sinking.
"The ship was struck just forward
of the engines on the port side. All
the troops were in their bunks sleep?
ing in their uniforms. There was a
loud explosion and then the ship's
whistle was blown, which was a signal
for everybody to come on deck. The
men had been assigned to particular
boat*?, and boat drill had been held
every day during the voyage. The men
assembled in perfect order. Their dis?
cipline was splendid, the best I ever
saw.
Ship Righted and Ran On
"The Moldavia listed to port, hut
righted herself and ran on for about
fifteen minutes, to avoid being hit
again. Then the began to sink stead?
ily. Orders were given to lower the
boats and rafts and we got off.
"Destroyers had been circling around
us all the time, and as soon as the
Moldavia was struck they dropped sev?
eral depth charges. No second torpedo
was fired and we saw nothing of the
submarine. We remained in the life?
boats until the ship sank, when we
were taken on board the destroyers.
"As soon as the men got aboard the
boats and rafts they began laughing
md singino*. and when the ship sank
they gave three cheers."
The Moldavia was off the southeast
coast when she was attacked, says the
correspondent of "The Daily Mail" at
? southeast coast port. He quotes a
member of the crew as saying:
"A careful watth was kept, but a
submarine does not seem to have been
lighted before the torpedo struck.
Only half a dozen men who were put
off on a raft got so much as a wetting,
?nd they were saved."
H. Diehl, Moldavia Victim,
Leaves Widow in New York
Herman Diehl, who is. on the Mol?
davia list of missing, was thirty years
old and a member of the 58th Infantry,
Company B. He is a graduate of the
New Jersey public schools. About nine
years ago Diehl enlisted in the regular
army, in which he served up to three
years ago. He was drafted several

Germany Bars British
Labor's War Aims
Swedish Socialist Says Copies
Sent to Teuton Leaders Fail
to Reach Them
STOCKHOLM, May 25.?In a signed
article in the "Social Demokraten"
Hjalmar Branting, the Swedish Social?
ist leader, declares every effort he
had made to transmit to the German
Socialist party the London memoran?
dum outlining the war aims of the
British Labor party, in compliance
with a request by the International
Socialist Bureau, had been unsuccess?
ful.
Branting says an attempt to send the
memorandum by courier failed, and
that then it was sent in registered
letters to Philip Scheidemann and
Hugo Haase, the German Socialist
leaders in Berlin, and their Austrian
compatriots. Victor Adler, in Vienna,
and Herr Buchinger, in Budapest, and
the Bulgarian leaders, Sakasoff and
Kyetkow, in Sofia.
Many weeks have elapsed and no an?
swer has been received, M. Branting
states.
The Berlin Socialist newspaper
"Vorw?erts"' asserts that the German
authorities are responsible for the
failure of the memorandum to be de?
livered.
Two American Aviators
Killed in Air Battles
PARIS, May 25.?Two American avi?
ators, Paul KurtzBon, of Philadelphia,
end Roger Babiani, who came from
Cuba, have been killed on the front,
the "Herald" reports to-day. Both had
been in the American ambulance ser?
vice and transferred to the Amcripan
Plying Corps.
Kurtzson, according to the advices,
after having completed his training as
an aviator, asked permission to go up
on Thursday. He flew over the Ger-1
man lines and shortly afterward his I
machine came down in flames. Babi- !
ani, who was killed on Tuesday, was !
the wearer of a French military cross j
awarded to him for bravery while act?
ing as an ambulance driver in 1915. j

Returning Bishop
Denies Tales of
Vice in U. S. Army
Brands False AH Stories
Reflecting on Morale of
Fighters Abroad
Cheerfulness Prevails
American Keenness and Good
Humor Have Injected New
Note Into the War
Bishop F. J. McConnell, of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, "who has
just returned from a three months'
visit to the American and French
fronts, brought back a vivid and de?
cidedly optimistic report of the per?
sonnel and morale of the American
soldiers in France. He was enthusi?
astic over their spirit, and declared
t?at they had won the admiration of
both the French and English officers.
Bishop McConnell was emphatic in
denouncing stories which reflected on
the moral tone of our troops. He
branded as falsehoods tales of drunk?
enness and vice.
"I had a fine talk with General
Fcrshing before I left," said Bishop Mc?
Connell. "He told me the one tlyng
that the authorities wanted to do above
all else was to get rid of all the evils
which might be a danger to American
boys abroad.
"One of the popular stories I heard
before I went abroad," continued the
Bishop, "was that our soldiers were
blue, homesick ano*, discouraged. In
the three months I spent visiting vari?
ous sections of the front, during
which time I met several thousand sol?
diers, the only men .! met suffering
?from an attack of the blues were a
party of raiders who had just come
out of the trenches for a bit of rest.
"The men had been 'over the top'
and they were blue. There was no de?
nying that. It seems they had prowled
around that barren space of land for
hours and the only thing they had
to show for their efforts was a German
rifle and a bundle of German news?
papers.
"From my observations and from
what I wa stold, I found that the Amer?
ican soldiers were taking two things
into the war. The afirst is quick-witted
ness, and the second is a spirit of good
humor and a kind of helpfulness which
is going to be of great benefit.
"A British officer told me that a six
weeks' training course had been laid
out for our young American officers as?
signed to the artillery branch of the
British army. Not one man, he told me,
had been with his division but had
finished, the course in ten days."
Bishop McConnell strong favors
sending women abroad for certain
kinds of service. He said those he
saw at canteens abroad stopper the
swearing and grouching of the men
and that the soldiers and sailors of
every nationality fairly worship the
women.
One of the objects of Bishop McCon
nell's trip abroad was to gather data
to be used in framing a world pro?
gramme for the celebration by the
Methodist Church of the centenary of
the Methodist missions. Of the move?
ment Bishop McConnell said his ex?
periences abroad had convinced him
that it was the most important and
helpful suggestion thus far made for
the world's reconstruction after the
war.
Bishop McConnell declared the
French were the wonder people of the
war. He said that everything they did
in connection with it, from their man?
agement of the railroads to their han?
dling of. the crops with only female
labor, was astounding. He says that
all the Allies feel the French to be
the people of the future.

Missing Meredith
May Be Noted Athlete
PHILADELPHIA, May 25.?Friends
of J. E. "Ted" Meredith, the former
Universiy of Pennsylvania athlete, ex?
pressed grave fear to-night lest he be
the lieutenant aviator "J. J. Meredith,
address unknown," who was among the
American army officers and twenty-six
enlisted men reported missing and
known to be prisoners in Germany.
"Ted" Meredith,, who was the world's
greatest middle distance runner, has
been in France since last fall. His
family recently received a letter from
him in which he said he was making
flights every day and instructing
cadets. Meredith was graduated from
the University of Pennsylvania in
1916, but did not give up running until
the United States entered the war,
when he enlisted. ,
In 1916 Meredith set new world's
intercollegiate records for the half and
quarter mile events in the intercol
legiates at Cambridge. He represented
America in the Olympic games at
Stockholm, Sweden, the same year.
