AMERICANS SEEK RELEASE OF BARON HELD BY BRITISH Von Horst Was Citizen of United States Before He QotTltlo. LONDON, Dec. , The American Em bassy Is taking an active Interest ln the efforts to obtain the release from deten tion of Baron loula von Horst, who claims American citizenship, and who Is now held as an alien enemy. Von Horst Is quartered In the old liner Prince Edward, where a largo number ot prisoners are placed. His case has been attracting much attention, his friends In cluding such well-known men as Franklin Lane, Governor Johnson, of California, and Otto II. Kahn. They have proposed that tho British Government release him on the promle that he Immediately pro ceed to California and remain there until tho end of the war. Von Horst was once an American citi zen through his father's naturalization, and was a candidate for public office In Brooklyn. A few years ago he obtained the title of baron from the Duke ot Saxe Coburg. He believed that this vitiated his citizenship, and thereafter declared himself a German subject. WTicn the war began he registered as such with the Lon don police. Later, after being placed in a detention camp, he raised the point that his mere acceptance of a title did not de stroy his citizenship. The United States State Department has been wrestling .with the problem, and has, It Is said, practically reached a decision that the Baron Is an American. There are still doubtful points, however, and today Second Secretary Bell of the Embassy will go to obtain certain statements from Baron von Horst. There Is no doubt that the British Gov ernment suspects von Horst of being a dangerous alien. He has taken part In numerous agitations, Including the suf fragette movement and strikes.

You will have heard by now that our battalion has been In action and greatly distinguished Itself.

Wo left on the 3d, at 6 p. m., and marched or eight miles or so, and put up for the night. In tho morning we marched about the same distance, and Joined the rest of the battalion. We have a comfortable billet here, and most of us slept for 10 dr 13 hours last night. The battalion has been withdrawn from the firing line, and no one knows If It Is going baok again. At any rate. It can not go for some time yet, as most of tho men have lost their Tlflen nnd equipment In action. On Tuesday we were quartered in the town hall, and before we left the ond of tho building was hit, and one or- two shells burst between that and the ca thedral just behind. One or two houses down tho street were also blazing fu riously, nnd so wo were not at all sorry to leave tho place.
