Pollen Tells Na?y League of Three Possible Means. "The defeat of the submarine Is the crux of the war. and the com bined Inventive genius of the allied governments will have to defeat the Teuton sea warfare If the allies are to be victors." declared Arthur H. Pollen, British naval expert, who apoke last night before the Navy League of the United States at the Wlllard. He said that war Is an affair of communications, and the first task of the war "Is to secure these com munications for the United States, which lies 3,000 miles from the seat of the war. "We have now to prove that the German theory, as to their power to cut sea communications and to ren der the belligerency of the United States Ineffective. Is wrong." con tinued the speaker. Sketches Three Courses. "There are three courses open. "We may block the exit to the Ger man harbors by active sea operatton, and hold an area for sufficient time to barricade those exits effectively. CoulJ such an effective barricade be estao Ushed the German fleet would t definitely Immobilized and then the problem of watching the porta at close range and of blocking them with a mine field so that submarine could not get out would be soluble. "The second course Is to block the North sea and the Channel by estab lishing an Impassable combination of nets and mines, but there are certain problems, difficult of solution albeit not necessarily Insoluble, In connec tion with such operations. Xortb Sea Dlfaeultlea. "In the North sea there are tides and atorms and sea actions whtcn make It an extremely difficult task io anchor mines and to maintain nets. Moreover, such operations are dtr flcult to carry out on such a targe scale. "Third, we may defend our ship by arming them, by providing them with Improved flotation and other means of defense against submarine attack, but these measures which I mention as a third alternative, while they are valuable, are not sufficient. Suo marines must be fought at sea. Mr. Pollen will deliver the same ad dress at the Wlllard tonight at S o'clock.

THESSALY SGENE E GREECE BLOOMED Students of the ancient history of Oreece will once more discover some use for their knowledge In viewing the allied campaign near SalonlkL Thessaly, says the Christian Science Monitor. Is the district of Northern Oreece between Macedonia and the more purely Hellenic section to the south, and between the hill country of Eplru and the Aegean Sea, so, at ,nT geographera would describe it. Just twenty, yeara ago, when the Oreek troops were flying In disorder across Its plains, hard pressed by the victorious forces of Edhem Pacha, all Je world was hearing about Thea aaly. War was doing then what it always does, that l, teaching people geogra phy, and such place a Larlasa an', such natural features as the Plndus mountains, became household words; while Ossa and Pellon stepped out of the dignity of the classics into the iuii glare of the modern newspaper. Xo Important History. Now today, aa the French forces. moving down from SalonkI, croas the River Salamvrla, enter Larlssa, and proceed systematically to the occupa tion of the whole province, attention Is drawn once again to this old land amid the world's old lands. Curiously enougn, nowever, although an old land, Thessaly has no really Im portant history, and It haa never been the home of a great people. Its history. Indeed, Is closely connected with Its geography. The great fertile plain has ever offered a sore temptation to the peo ple of the hills which surrounded it. ana It was Just this fertility which first Induced the Thessallans to leave their homes In the hills of Eplrus and descend Into the rich country which lies, some sixty miles square, between the Cambunlan mountains on the north and Othya on the south, and between the Plndua In the west and the continuous lines of Ossa and Pel lon In the east. Settled In Land. The Thessallans, In two successive waves, drove the Boetlans and the Dorians southward, and settled In the land. That was all In the remote period before Greek civilisation had begun to develop. Thessaly next came prominently into notice at that critical period In trie history of classical Oreece when Xerxes, with his Persian hosts, was threatening the liberties of the great city states of the peninsula. During the years that bad Intervened the Thessallan had waxed fat. His land was fertile, while his spacious surface presented none of those elevations so dear to the heart of the founder of warlike cltlea There was never In Thessaly any thing like the great democratic city states of Greece proper. It was, o.n the contrary, the natural home of powerful aristocracies, and such fam ilies as the Aleuadae of Larlssa, and the Scopadae of Grannon were famous In their time CANADIAN EMISSARY GUEST AT BANQUET France, Great Britain, and the United States were represented at a dinner given last night In honor of Dr. Henry M. Ami, a representative of Canada, at the Shoreham. The din ner was a climax of a day's exercises commemorating the fiftieth anniver sary of the confederation of the prov inces of Canada and the birth of the dominion. Dr. Ami struck a responsive chord with the diners when he said. In re sponding to a toast: "I wish that the three great nations represented here tonight might always stand together, mutually pursuing peace, progress, and prosperity "These three great nations," said Dr Ami. "typify to me granite There are three essential elements In gran Ite, each one of which has glowing qualities. Mica, the first element, rep resents France, because of Its brll llsncy; quartz, the chief quality f which Is grit.

PERSHING CRITICISES ASSOCIATED PRESS PARIS. July 3. Major General Pershing announced today he had taken up with the government the alleged Invasion of the censorship by which Reuters agency, of England, had prematurely announced arrival of American troops In France In ad dition he said he was personally con ducting a thorough probe of the facts In connection with the publication of this unauthorized news by the Asso ciated Press in America "Nobody feels this outrage more strongly than I," he said "Premature publication of the news Imperlled'the lives of thousanda who were afloat at the time " Reuters agency serves the Asso ciated Press In London, and Its dis patches are used by the American agency In the United States U was this unauthorized dispatch which pre maturely announced In this country the landing of troops 6.25 INCHES OF RAIN FOR "RARE JUNE DAYS" Six and one-fonrth Inches of rain descended upon Washington during the month of June, according to the Department of Agriculture's meteoro logical summary Issued today Of this total, 2 69 Inchea rell June 14, when one man waa killed during a severe electrical storm. A great many Washlngtonlans be lleve that because there were ten thunderstorms and only ten clear days in June It was the rainiest month they ever saw.

The lowest temperature, 30 de OF WARS BEFOR Paris Invaded by Our Sammies For Fourth of July Parade PARIS, July 3. A battalion of American troops arrived in Paris today at the Gare Du Quaid Austerlitz, a railroad sta tion on the Seine, in southeastern Paris. Only a moderate crowd gave them greeting, Parisians not being advised of the arrangements for their arrival. The battalion is one which is to parade in tomorrow's celebration by Paris of Independence Day. The troops were served with a French breakfast at the railway sta tion. It consisted of black coffee and bread. Then they marched to bar racks near at hand, atepplng along In lively fashion to the music of their band. Envied of all their comrades, the battalion of General Pershing's Sam mies at "a French port" yesterday were putting an extra shine on their guns and bayonets and an added brushing to their uniforms as they prepared for the friendly Invasion of Paris. They'll Celebrate. Too. But those left behind took It philo sophically, and got busy at once ar ranging baseball gamea and field sports as their own celebration of In dependence Day. That French port now looks like an American village, all dressed up for a Fourth of July celebratfon. Th- army has Just about made It over. American flags fly In profusion every where. The American sailors' blue and white, and the American olive green and drab khaki overshadow the occasional dingy, war-worn uniforms of a few pollus here. In the streets rumble American motor trucks, with barrels and boxes and packagea on which are American namea It hasnt taken the American Sam my nor the American Jackie very long to get acquainted with the pretty girls of the town even if both are badly handicapped by lack of a com mon "lingo." Nor has It taken the Americans any time to search out places to spend money. The shopkeepers are deluged with apenders. Whole World Beautiful. Over all the Joyous liberty hours in the town no less than over the grim war preparation In the camp a glorious sun shines down, the trees and grasses are green, and the whole world la beautiful.

Flowers dot 'the roadwaya and two big hills stand like sentinels on one side of the hut city where the troops are "billet ed." while on the other the land rolls away to the distant sea There Is a great dispute on here as to which unit had the honor of first bringing the American flag to the camp. The driver of one big motor "Jorry" Is believed to have the honor. He hustled ahead full-tilt a soon as the big machine was swung to the dock, and unfurled the flag at the first hut. The French port haa finally recov ered from Its astonishment, and pleased surprise over being selected aa the spot where history was made In the landing of the American forcea. Dand Is Mobilised. "We were entirely surprised over the arrival of the troops," said a member of the chamber of commerce today. "We hurried out at once, seek lng the band, so they could play the 'Marseillaise' and the 'Star-Spangled Banner' In greeting All of the mu sicians were hard at work, and it was difficult to round them up Besides, they hadn't had much time to prac tice. "We got all our citizens we could to meet at the dock in greeting, but most of our men belong to the army. We tried to show how we felt In our hearta and how all France feels about these American soldiers" As a matter of fact the French port was totally unprepared to welcome the Americans.
