After Secretary McAdoo's address of tulcomr to the Alplni and Bersag Ilerl yesterday afternoon on the south steps of the Treasury he step-1 ped down from the platform and shook hands with every man of the detach ment as they filed past. TelU History of AIL As the hardened soldiers stepped up to the Secretary, saluted and shook hands with him, the military attache of the Italian embassy explained to Mr. McAdoo how many -wounds each soldier had received, how long he had been In the trenches and what each one s different service badges stood for. As the thirty-eighth man, or rather boy, stepped up and saluted, the mili tary attache put his arms around the boy's shoulders and while the crowd cheered, he explained to Secretary McAdoo that this boy, Pascuall Gual ano, only nineteen years old, had been wounJed In action four times and had already spent more than a year in the trenches. Tascuali, who has received more than three medals for valor, stood there and only smiled, probably not quite understanding what all the "fuss" was- about, but knowing that in some way he was connected with It. Ab the attache took his arms from his sholdrers, the boy smartly sa luted, shook the extended hand of the Secretary, saluted again and returned to his detachment, smiling and blush ing. Many of the boys of the Alplni and Uersagllerl. who are In the Liberty loan detachment, have been In the war ever since Italy decided to cast her lot with the allies, and of the 300 who were received by Secretary Mc Adoo, more than 1B0 of them had re ceived three wounds or more. Wounded Fonr Times. One of the 'boys" belonging to the Alpint detachment had stripes on his right arm showing that he had been wounded four times. On bis left arm was a black cloth with two silver stars attached to IL As he saluted Secretao McAdoo the Italian mili tary attache explained that this man had lost two brothers In the war, both of them beins killed in the last Aus trian offensive. Both detachments v. Ill probably be In Washington again before they re turn to Italy and the trenches. Tp day they will be split up at Hanis turg and Wheeling, each section going to a different part of the coun try In an effort to vlalt every large city In the United States before the fourth Liberty loan period exxplrcs. siiiiiiisiiisVfflKLisiiBs tflHB BrBsai'iBsJPy'SsssBffisw QUICK YANK RUSH OVERWHELMS FOE 30 FROM SAN SABA ARE STILL MISSING Thirty members of the crew of the American cargo steamship San Saba, which was sunk yesterday fifteen miles southaest of Barnegat, N. J., still are unaccounted for. Eleven sur vivors have been landed, according to reports to the Navy Department. The latest advices to tho Navy De partment report the landing of three survivors at Norfolk. They were picked up by a Norwegian steamer. Four others were previously reported rescued by another vessel en route to New Tork, and four more were re ported Nelanded at Newport. R. L There are said to have been forty one men In the crew. The captain of the Norwegian steamer which landed three survivors at Norfolk stated that the aurvlvors were picked up one at a time from the wreckage. The San Saba was sunk about 1 o'clock In the morning, he learned from the rescued men. Most of the members of the crew seem to have been washd from the wreckage and drowned. The cause of the disaster has not been definitely determined, but the theory of the Navy epurtment Is that the San Saba struck a mine, uecau lntr the battleship Minnesota's col lision with a mine off the New Jersey coast several days ago. the navy ex perts stil ling to the theory that the mines were sown by enemy suoma rlnes durinc the ampalgn off this oast early in the summer. Naval vessels now are on the sene, searching for possible survivors and to sweep the vicinity for mines. One dead body was found by the steamer bound for New Tork which rescued tu o men.

Delivered by GUS BUCHHOLZ Proprietor of Hotel Occidental, Washington, D.-C.-at KEITH'S THEATER ' An American Born in Gtermiany --- V-L4 1K :K i ' at. al K si k al . IS alk all. Ladies and Gentlemen: Before I advise what you should do as born Americans, I would rathertell you what I have done myself as aa American for 21 years, bom in Germany. When the United Statei declared war on Germany, I happened to be in the Capitol. 1 am not trying: to tell you ifwaTa pleas" e to me-but I knew in my heart it was The proper thing to do for the interest of our country. And reSSne what this country had done for me, and knowing my obligation p a citizen I determined to back up thb f Government with all the money 1 had on hand and could spare by pledging myself to buy Liberty Honds and War Savings Stamps. . . . ., ,. ...r I don't know of any more pro-Germans among our dtizenr, and I don't want to see any more, but if there stiff should be anVleTt, I Hope they be men enough and try to get over to Germany as fast as possible. They have got no more business here, no matter where they were bom. . -- - ..,.. . ., aAn nnn wnrih My only boy, and that', all I have, has enlisted to fight for America. Up to'date, I have bought J .40,000 vorto of : ibSrty Bond7and War Savings Stamps. My employees are all patriotic. Americans, English, French, Italians, Greeks, Austrians, Turks they all bought bonds. For the last two months I have been busy collecting pledges for this Loan, and 1 want to say to you, I am very proud of my pledges and my friends. My total amounts to over $300,000. Now ladies and gentlemen, I have told you what 1 have done. Now I take the liberty of telling you what you should do' Inthe 3 ibert?Loan. Mr. McAdoo called for three billion .dollars and 1 afbr thirty days of hard work we finanv" ra"sed a little over four billion dollars. Eighteen million reople bought bonds-only about one out of every six i ?c Vn led States. Why didn't we make a better showing? Because our people had not realized at fheHmThoV much there was at stake, and some people I heard said this rich government should pay five per cent interest on Liberty Bonds, instead of only four and a quarter. The German Government expected to win this war inside of two years. For not being able to do it, they are nhmiHhTS i States not the Allies and if this German Government should find an opportunity to charge us witrmaintain this wa"'how SuchintoFdo you think they would give you on your money? They would Uke your Serest They would take your principal, my hotel, and God knows what they would do with me for making Liberty Bond speeches! ., , . Therefore, we must win this war. If you want to make a strong moral impression on the .GeanPeP a" convincTthe German Government that you are all interested then raise ten billion f.aJh.,mhe.0nunb'e J amount of what Mr. McAdoo calls for-that is what they would call a good drive in this country; they know our wealth, they know our resources and population. We would not have to spend any more money, but we .would show them that, when it comes to protection m our great country, everything can be raised voluntarily, instead of by forced taxation. Remember, ladies and gentlemen, we do not have to worry about our Bonds; our Boys over there before Metz have proven that the German army can be beaten. And so long as Germany has to be beaten I want our Boys to do it t ,.rlt!0n. I want to sav to vou that I realize fully what this speech means to me it means that I am through SSb GeanyTnd GaV "tfigh with me. l right! I feel I ought to do more than all of you You neople of Washington, and of the United States, you have made me what I am today! You are loyal to me; you Tare trusting m?Sd S see an opportunity to do any:hing for our country, or for our President, no Pacifist and no Kfeiser can stop me, because 1 owe you this. I thank you all.
