PACIFISTS BEGIN MOVE TO ESCAPE WAR DOTY Seek to Obtain Exemption From Military Service for "Con scientious Objectors" AIM TO GET RULING WASHINGTON, June 23. Two pacifist organizations have launched a huge campaign that. If carried out, of. flcials said today, would greatly undermine the selective draft law. These organiza tions, It was stated, are attempting to open a channel for escape from military service. More than 10.000 have enrolled ln tho propaganda. Agents ot tho Department of Justice are fixing their attention upon the activities of representatives of the organ izations, So far efforts ct the pacifists are con fined to attempts to have Inserted ln tho exemption regulations, which will bo pub lished probably Monday, a clause that would specifically permit persons professing conscientious objections" to war to escape selectlvo draft and enrollment ot members with the Implied promise that their member ship constitutes them "objectors." The most active organization Is the Amer ican Union Against Militarism. One ot the official') of this organization said that not less than 10,000 persons had enrolled since June 6, registration day. The other organization has headquarters at Northfleld, Minn. In their activities the pacifists appealed to President Wilson and Secretary Baker to provide for exemption of "conscientious ob jectors" and members of pacifist unions. This would furnish their big membership with exemption. Thwarted in this, they are suggesting that objectors be allowed to enlist ln In dustries to avoid bearing arms. After an appeal to the War Department. Roger N. Baldwin, field secretary of the American Union Against Militarism, re ceived a letter from Secretary Baker, point ing out that the draft law falts to provide for "conscientious objectors," and stating that the department cannot "go behind the law" In administering it. With two of their avenues shut off, tho organizations are seeking to obtain a liberal Interpretation of a clause In the law that permits the exemption of members of recognized religious sects or organizations. Another U-Boat Sunk by U. S. Ship OontlnHfi! from rose One He shouted to the bridge: "Here Bhe comes; torpedo port side I" "Tho chief officer, who was on tho bridge, shouted to tho quartermaster. 'Hard star board !' We swung off. Tho torpedo had a red head, about sixteen Inches ln dia meter. It was about ten feet long. The torpedo struck us on the port side a glanc ing blow nmldshlp.'', near the engine room. Our ship was empty and we all thought sho had exploded from tho terrific noise the torpedo made when hit. "Simultaneously the ship's whistle blew short and successive blasts, which was signal to abandon ship and man tho life boats. "The captain, who had remained on the ship, found the torpedo had failed to ex plode. All hands were thentordered back. We lay perfectly still for at least an hour. "When the commander of the submarine saw our crew comlns back from lifeboats and climbing on deck he gave up his chase for the two British uhlps and Btarted for us again. The submarine was about 2000 yards oft our starboard beam. "Then came the command to man the guns. The gun crews ran foro and aft to their positions. The chief gunner gave them tho ranges from the bridge. "When about COO yards oft our star board quarter a shell from our forward gun hit tho submarine nnd she submerged. Again she appeared and our after gun hit her and blew away her periscope. Another shot from our forward gun fell right on top of her. "There was a shower of black speck3 which rose high in the air, followed by a creat commotion, bubbles of water and a light blue smoke arlMng from the stern of the U-boat where a second beforo had been tho eyes of our enemy. "Our crew, which was lined up against the .starboard rail watching tho battle, gave a hearty cheer when the submarine disap peared. Nineteen shots were fired." SINKING OF SUBMARINE REPORTED OFFICIALLY WASHINGTONj-June 23. Tho apparent sinking of a derman sub marine by the gun crew of an armed Amer ican liner, reported ln dispatches yester day, was officially reported to the Navy Department this afternoon. The report was made by O. J. Gulllckson, chief boatswain's mate In charge of thonaval guard. The U-boat was put out of action only after one of her torpedoes had struck the steamer, falling, however, to explode. "At about 6:30 o'clock p. m" reported Gullckson, "the man on the forward gun platform shouted 'torpedo !' The helm ot the ship was Immediately put hard to star board and the ship headed toward the tor pedo. The torpedo- hit the ship Just abaft the beam ; glanced and went around the stern and sank. The holds, engine room and bilges were Inspected and the ship found not leaking. The torpedo apparently did not explode. "Immediately after a periscope was sighted oft the starboard beam, and fire was Immediately commenced with the for. ward gun at about 2000 yards. The ship was headed toward tho periscope and all shots were falling very close to the perl scope. Suddenly a shot from tho forward gun hit Just In front of the periscope, mak ing the submarine submerge, and a light blue smoke came up from the stern of the submarine. The periscope appeared again at a range of 600 yards, when a shot from the after gun hit It square on the water line, making small bits ot steel fly and causing great commotion of bubbles In the water. Apparently the submarine was either sunk or badly damaged. Nothing fur ther was seen of It." The names of the gun crew follow t Olaf John Gulllckson, boatswain's mate In charge.

SurseoM witnessed th ocera- EVENING LEDGER- PHILADELPHIA, SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1917 BUILD SHIPS QUICK, WILSON'S DEMAND Top Speed Needed to Pre vent Success of German U-Boat War BOTH WOOD AND STEEL WASHINGTON, June 23. Kvery nvnllable ocean-going carrying ves sel, wood, steel or any other construction, must be built nt top speed at onco unless the German submarine menacfo Is to imperil me success of tho present war. Convincing cvldenco showing this fact now M In possession of President Wilson, It was learned this afternoon. He will settle the controversy between Chairman William Denman, of the United States Shipping Commission, and Gcnerat George W. Goethals, general manager of tho emergency fleet corporation, within the next few days. And In settling It, officials who arc close to the President openly declare, he will take the position that tho entire resources of tho nation must be devoted to turning out vessels of every kind and that unless the pnrtles to tho controversy are willing to quit fighting and work in har mony they will have to glvo place to men who will. The Information placed before the Presi dent, upon which ho wilt base his decision, is of tho most sensational kind. It shows tho following facts: If German submarines can maintain their present rate of destruction, accept ing the average for the last three months as nn average that will hold good for twelve months, they will destroy a total of 12,000,000 tons of shipping In a year. Steel production of the United States and Great Britain pushed to tho limit will provide only for sufficient material to re place 4,000,000 tons of that total. Wood production of the United States for shipbuilding will provide for not to exceed 2 000,000 tons of shipping addi tional. Combined steel and wool construction can meet only one-half of tho total de- structlon of the German submarines dur ing the first year of tho participation of tho United States in tho war. Later on this production will b ;-nterlally In creased as new plants av". built. With these facts before him, the Presi dent ls expected to order construction of every available typo of vessel e.' once. The official denial by the White House today that the President had settled the controversy ln favor of General Goethals was considered highly significant. It made It very plain that there was to be no snap Judgment, and that the issues at stako wero to bo thoroughly Investigated. The President ls known to think very highly of the ability of both General Goethals nnd Mr. Denman. Ho commis sioned the latter to deal with Foreign Minister Arthur J. Balfour when tho latter was here, In an effort to get tho British Government to relinquish contracts for a million tons of shipping which was being leisurely constructed ln American ship yards. Previous efforts to get these con tracts released through diplomatic methods had failed. Denman departed from dip lomatic methods nnd warned Mr. Balfour that these contracts were clogging American shipyards nnd that they would bo of im mense benefit to Germany, Inasmuch as these contracts called for singlo shift work and prevented utilizing labor the entlro twenty-four hours. So convincing was tho Denman argument that Mr. Balfour sur rendered al of theso contracts to tho ship ping commission. General Goethals, like Mr. Denman, also has accomplished great things for tho President, and the latter is exceedingly loath, It is understood, to lose tho services of either man. He ls expected to try to reconcile the general to accepting wooden ships aa auxiliary for steel, and If he usc ceeds tho controversy wilt end at once. General Goethals, however, has taken the position that the wooden Milps nt best are a makeshift nnd has declined to have his district tepresentatlves award any con tacts lor tliel1- construction except to firms and yards which have built ways at their own expense. This has aroused bitterness tn certain quarters and resulted In com plaints being mado direct to tho White House. Transit Bill at Mercy of Enemies in House Contlnned from I'mre Onn Salus bill and the two Hecht measures. Tho Mayor added that he had discussed tho situation with a number of men today over the telephone from his home In Ambler, but what specifically was talked of and with whom ho talked he declined to state. Mr. Baldwin was accompanied on his visit to Philadelphia by Representative Edgar Smith, of Bedford, of cabaret bill .fame, who Is a member of the subcommittee to which the bill wa3 given by Chairman Stern, It was as a 'member of that sub committee that Aron got possession of tho measure and was able to bring It to thl3 city. Representative Smith laughed, when talking of the event, saying he did not even know he was a member of the sub committee until ho read about it ln the newspapers. One of the rumors afloat In political cir cles throughout the day was that tho real reason for Mr. Lane's retirement from tho chairmanship of the Republican City Com mittee was that he could not go along with the Vares In their support of Mayor Smith's transit program. Tho Vares declared there was absolutely nothing In the report Harrisburg Gives $96,543 to Red Cross HARRISBURG, June 23.

PUZZLE PICTURE REAL PUZZLE TO MANY Only Ono Woman Managed to Guess Policeman's Identity Do clothes make the man? One would believe eo ln looking over the hundreds of answers that were received to the Kvenino Ledger picture puzzle that appeared In the plctorlat section of June 18. Tho picture was unique: It was a likeness of Henry Haerlng, a former popular Kensington po liceman, but Instead or tho familiar uni form, the clothes were typical of a Mexican outlaw, with broad sombrero nnd a knife stuck In tho belt. Tho replies received were In no manner flattering to a number of prominent men, as many believed that Thcodoro Roosevelt or William II. Taft was tho apparent bandit.
