14 y- FEVER FANCY WES FEAR OF SPYING IN ARMY BUREAU Watchman in U. S. Service Ex onerated by Investigation and Proves Mysterious Noises Only Imagination of Hospital Patient. By BILL PRICE. How near an American citizen with a German name and parentage came to a sreat crisis in his life was told with dramatic truthfulness to day by a responsible Government 01 ficial, it bcinj; necessary to omit all names and places except that the events took place in this city. A patient in a Washington hos pital lay awake in his room one night and could not sleep, he told Government authorities. His failure to sleep was due to the ticking of a typewriter in a nearby building which houses an important branch of the United States army. Patient Grows Suspicious. Becoming suspicious, the patient watched closely what was grolnc on In the rooma of the OoTernment struc ture. He saw a man searching- the waste baskets tor scrape of paper, which he carefully put together and then copied on the typewriter. Then be searched among the desks and files in several rooms and from pa pers before him made extracts on the typewriter. When the electric lights in the room were not sufficient for his purposes, he ussd a strong flash light. Occasionally the patient could see him go into a certain room and raise his arm upon the tlda of the wall as it telephoning. There could be no doubt In the mlcd of the patient that a spy was work ing. The prowler was observed closely and an exact description taken and reported. This description un aueetlonanrr fitted the only watch man employed by the Government on the floors of the building- seen by the patient. This watchman, for some years is ths service of the Govern ment, bora a German name. Secret M-rie We Called. Government officials, although practically sura that the patient was telling the truth, were fair enough to start aa Investigation before taking action. Secret Service agents were called In. They kept close watch for several sights and Investigated every detail of the story told them and ersry fact connected with the life of the watchman. The outcome was the complete ex oneration of the watchman and the discovery that the patient, nervous from his illness and Influenced by tho fancies of night and his surroundings, imagined many of the details he re lated. He had seen the watchman on his rounds of the building and watched some of the things be did. but these, things were strictly in line with bis duties. 1,500 WOMEN FARM IN ONE ENGLISH COUNTY In one county In England, 1.500 women are officially reported em ployed in farm labor, the Food Ad ministration announced today.

(Continued From Page One) sort of contest based on a radical eco nomic rlvllary which would breed deeper antagonisms than the antag onisms of actual force " So the ilew expressed by some officials that conceivably America would for self-preseMatlon, twin brother of the formula of military necessity, so conveniently adduced by German militarism, enter Into an eco nomic bojeott. is hardly in harmony with the broader and more unselfish outlook on world politic entertained by the President himself, who looks with horror on the possibility even or any trade war. the kind of economic contest that stimulates commercial profits at the greater expense later on of large casualty lists of human beings Trade War Idea ot 1 1tal to Alms. The boldness of Mr Wilson's de. nunclatlon of economic boycotts, espe dally without consulting Great Brit aln, leads to the belief that, even in England, the Idea of a trade war may not be so. vital a part of the allies war alms now as It may have orlgl nally seemed.
