Believing that one of tlie three un
identified soldiers found wandering In
NTo Man's Land and who are now under
treatment In French hospitals might be
Sergeant Vincent Barry, Thirty-eighth
Infantry, A. JE. F\, relatives In New
York have asked the French War Min
istry for particulars as to where he was
found, as well as for specific Identifica
tion marks.
Although Sergeant Barry wss listed as
killed In action In official reports, his
relatives never have given up hope and
recent dispatches published In Thb New
York Herald induced them to look Into
the circumstances, as one of the three
soldiers who to now Speechless gives fre
quent Indications of having had educa
tion and training above the average.
Charles J. O'Keefe and the Rev. T.
M. O'Keefe of 264 West Fifty-third
street. New York, have forwarded Bar
ry's description to The Nmo York Herald
of Paris for transmission to the War
Ministry, and the latter to-day promised
to make every effort in the case.
According to the information for
warded from New York, Barry was
among the first American troops to enter
the front line in an active sector. This
was during the days when efforts were
made to prevent the Germans from
knowing the Americans were ready for
batUe. During a night attack on July 1,
1?18, Barry led a party of ten men in a
raid on enemy tranches.
To disguise themselves the men left
eff their Identification discs and donned
French uniforms. The raid was a suc
esss, but when the party returned to
the trenches Barry was missing. Al
though none of his companions saw him

SAN MARINO STILL AT WAR;

Rome, March 86. (
The peaceful republic of 6an Marino,
about the size or a postage stamp, fig
uratively speaking, being near Italy has
had difficulty recently owing to Its ac
cessibility to bandits escaping across
the Italian frontier. San Marino In 1916
declared war on the Central Powers,
but the Allies somehow failed to Include
her In the armistice or In the peace
treaty and consequently she ts still In a
state of war.
Her army, however. Is mostly engaged
In spring planting and the police are
too old and respectable to associate
i with rough criminals. Because the Bol
shevist gathered on the frontier the
Italian Kasclstl organized man hunts
and chased them across, thus violating
8an Marino's sovereignty. Then the
Italian police followed to round up both
factions.
The population of San Marino fears
that this outside protection damages its
national prestige and Intends to modern
ise its own constabulary.

ALBERT MUST CALL

Homage to Pope to Take Pre

Functions
I
j FIXES FUTURE PROCEDURE
Visit of Belgian Monarchs
May Result in Royal
Betrothal.
Rome, March 26 (Associated Press).
?Whether the coming visit to Italy of
King Albert and Queen Elizabeth of Bel
glum will lead to the engagement of
Princess Yolanda. daughter of King Vic
tor Emmanuel, to the Duke of Brabant,
heir to the Belgian throne, the visit Is
considered of great Importance because
It will mark a new stag* In the relations
botween church and state.
Arrangements aro expected to form
tlie basis for the ceremonial of future
visits by Catholic rulers, and Pope Plus
has taken personal Interest In the de
tails. lie decided the call of the Belgian
sovereigns at the Vatican must take
rlace immediately on their arrival In
Home and before any official functions
occur, and even before the Belgian mon
archs visit Queen Mother Margherlta.
Heretofore non-Catholic sovereigns
went to the Vatican in carriages sup
p!ied by the embassy of thb'r country.
President Wilson in January. 1919,
adopted this custom. Pope Pius has
c'.eclded that Vatican automobiles shall
be sent to bring the King and Queen
of the Belgians to the Vatican. Tills in
itself shows progress, as a few years
niro the Vatican had no automobiles and
ecclesiastics were forbidden to use them.
Cardinal Vincenzo VanutelU was the
first prelate to have an automobile.
Some time ago he received a machine,
painted a bright from American
friends, and Induced the Pop? to with
draw his ban on the automobile.
Pope Pius has directed that five cars
be placcd at the disposal of the Belgian
sovereigns and has ordered Prince Jlas
?lmo, who claims to trace his descent
from early Roman history, to accompany
them.
The Prince married Princess Bon
cs-cclo, whose mother was Miss Hlckson
Field, daughter of a New York banker.
Prlnco Massimo, as well as the Papal
Ci mberlalns, one of whom will be in
eacii car, will be dressed in gorgeous
medieval costumes. The drivers of the
automobiles will wear black livery with
Bold buttons and cockades of the ponti
fical colors, white and yellow.
Inside the Vatican on the arrival of
the Belgian rulers the various papal
guards will render military honors.
RUSSIAN EPIDEMICS
PERIL EASTERN EUROPE
Disease Due to Famine Reach
ing Crisis.
Washixgton, March 26.?Danger of
eastern Europe from epidemics attend
ant on the prevalence of famine in Rus
sia "ia rapidly becoming serious," ac
cording to a report compiled by the
League of Nations' health committee,
: which declared the entire frontier zone
I between Soviet Russia and the Ukraine
on one hand and central Europe on the
other Is less prepared to withstand the
probable shock of epidemics than it has
been for several years. The committee
predicts its culmination when the famine
reaches Its crisis, probably in April.
The threat of disease was said to be
due to the tremendous waves of migra
tion caused by the flight of peasants
from famine stricken areas and to mass
repatriation of hundreds of thousands of
Poles dislodged from their homes dur
ing the great retreat of 1915.
It was estimated that just Inside the
Russian frontier no less than 130,000
caravans are concentrated. Through
one quarantine station, Baranowlsze,
S01.2S7 refugees passed between March
and December. 1921.
The greatly Increased repatriation was
said to have resulted In a break in the
Polish sanitary cordon, with the result
that typhus has spread further west than
1 ever before, even reaching Lithuania and
East Prussia The famine is now known
to have spread into the moat fertile
district of Ukraine.
The Epidemics Commission of the
League of Nations la cooperating to
strengthen the sanitary cordon and a
conference is now in session under cail
of the Polish Government to coordinate
the preventive measures of all the states

Declaring the slowness of American
lawyers In furnishing evidence against
Andre Himmel, who last year tried to
float a million dollar Franco American
cinematograph corporation or a shoe
string, and his bundle of credentials
casts doubt as to whether there really
is a case against htm, a Paris court
yesterday decided to release the pro
moter without bail.
For more than a year Himmel has
been detained in the Central I-rlson and
has always maintained he was innocent
and that if certain film interests had
not intervened he would have completed
his organization and would have bought
up theaterj all over France.
The first request for information from
the United States brought back the in
formation that Hlmmel's corporation
was legal under the Delaware laws, but
the court then refused to release him
until he had made affidavits as to the
use he made in America of letters of
recommendation from various French
Ministers, but which were denounced
here as forgeries,
Hlmmel's American associates appa
rently have not lost anything in the
venture, as the cash was not to have
been paid until the French end of the
firm was established, while *he French
backer who advanced the initial expense
money of several thousand francs also
seems Inclined to abandon the idea of
prosecuting the man.
