ment, will go into Aid. B." Buck's
record in the city council on an effic
iency basis. He has been on the job
regular as a Uneeda biscuit "morn
ing, noon, night" a glutton for
work and a' keen-eyed watchdog.
That's the way Miss Vittum sees it.
and she's ready to answer any ques
tions from folks who are suspicious
that Buck is a four-flusher.
"People who want to know the ins
and outs of the fight being made
against Aid. Buck will be wise to
come to the meeting tonight," said
J. G. Schaeffer, the Buck campaign
manager, today.

New York, Feb. 19. In a running
duel at sea between the French line
freighter Guayne and a German sub
marine, the U-boat wassunk, officers
and crew reported today on their ar
rival here from Bordeaux.
The submarine, they declared, fired
three ineffective shots at the ship and
went down when the second shell
from the 65-millimeter gun on the
Guayne struck her squarely.
The submarine, Capt Rousselet
sdd. acneared on the .vessel's Dort
side on Jan. 22 when the ship was
one day out from Bordeaux.
Washington, Feb. 19. Although
unchanged in its dangerous particu
lars, the German-American situation
today was generally regarded by of
ficials as more hopeful than at any
time since the diplomatic break two
weeks ago.
The situation is such that the
United Press can state positively the
president has "no present intention
of going to congress to discuss it in
any way."
o o
Washington, Feb." 19. Peremp
tory demand for release of the 72
American Yarrowdale prisoners, now
held in Germany, has been sent to
the imperial government, the state
department announced today,
The 'department announced the
demand had been sent Saturday.
Sec'y Lansing, in making an
nouncement that the demand was
dispatched secretly Saturday, added
that late yesterday evening the de
partment received word from Berlin,
presumably through the Spanish am
bassador, that the prisoners "would
be released'shortly."
It is not believed this communica
tion of Sunday evening is a reply to
this government's demand sent Sat
urday. This demand, it was made clear,
was just short of an ultimatum, re
cited the attitude, policy and steps
taken regarding Germans, German
property and German ships interned
here and pointed out clearly Pres.
Wilson's policy to take no step that
could be construed1 as having been
taken for "military exigency." v
Julius Johnson, carpenter who
built all scaffords for 21 hangings in
last 16 years at county jail, dead at
home. 2338 Osgood, Heart disease.
