Daan Detailed Reports Show At tacks Between Oct, 9 and Oct, 13 Greatest Actions of Whole Battle, lT MORNINCJ JOURNAL IPIOAL LBaO WIRI1 Herlin, Oct. 17 (by Wireless to Sayville. ) "Detailed report! about recent fighting on the Somnie front show distinctly that the attacks be tween October !l and October 13 are to be reckoned among the the great est actions of the whole Somme bat tle," says the overseas News agency. "The objectives of these great French and Itritish efforts were Hapaume and l'cronne. Moreover, numerous hostile attacks of violence were di rected again - the front from Cnur eeleite to St. 1'ierre Vaast woAd north of the Somme, and between Fresnes and Xlazaticomt and ugalnst ('haul ties, south of the river, of these en gagements, those north of the Somme were most severe. "On October 9, 10 and 11 the main centers of combat were north of Thievpal, north of Courcelette, near Sailly-Saillisel and in the vicinity of the St. 1'ierre Vaast wood. On Octo ber 12 a great and well co-ordinated attack was launched over the whole front from Courcelette to Houcha vesnes.'' liven Surpassed EiiHy (MoIst Attack Speaking of the attacks on October 12, the news agency says: "The defenders of the Somme front had thought It impossible that the violence of the artillery fire in the great attack early In October could be exceeded, but. nevertheless even this was surpassed. In spite of the terrific hall of Iron the Hritish and French did not succeed in reducing the Herman positions to such an ex tent that they could be cstormcd. French and Hritish Infantry In com pact waves charged the (lerman po sitions hut were speedily brought to a standstill by the (lerman curtain of fire. "Notwithstanding their heavy loss es, they attempted one attack after another. Near Sailly-Saillisel six charges were made. All failed com pletely, with the heaviest losses for tho enemy. C.erman infantry left their shelter;, and standing in the open, shot down the enemy columns with rifles and mac bine guns." The effect of the German fire on the French and Hritish, the news agency says, "was simply shocking." Tho account continues: "The Germans had not lost their energy and will, notwithstanding days of the heaviest shelling, lack of sleep and the impossibility of obtaining sufficient food on account of the in- eri upt lone to communications. The count continues: "The enemy's attacks abated some what on October 1.1. He concentrat ed his efforts against Sailly-Saillisel and St. Pierre-Vaast wood, as well as the, district east of Houchavesnes. "There is no possible doubt the en emy attempted to reach a decision with this enormous effort. Especially on October 12 he planned to break through on the largest, scale. All pris oners declare that the losses of the enemy, especially those of the Hrit ish, reached an amount here tofore unknown. Reports of German troops confirm this. Prisoners state French infantry companies now number hardly fifty men. The commander, i in order to stimulate the courage oi the troops had alcoholic drinks dis tributed profusely among them be fore the charge. This fact shows better than anything else 1lie real morale of the French troops. Pris oners speak of the attack as "hell on the Somme," and "useless slaughter." The tragedy of the Somme seems near a climax." j Art of Goya in Magazine, i cnl!i K7 Oct- 17.

I t '- ION'S EFFORT TO SEND RELIEF TO POLAND FAILS President Not Successful in Inducing Allies and Central Powers to Conclude Settle ment, IBV MORNIHI JOURNAL RICCAL LBARIO WtRRI l.ong Pranch, N. J., Oct. 7. Presi dent Wilson announced today that his efforts to bring about an agreement anions belligerent nations to allow re lief supplier to be sent to Poland had failed. The statement follows: "I have now received replies from the king of England, the president of Frame, the emperor of Kusslu, the emperor, of Gurmany and the emperor of Austria, to my letter of July 2fi, 191 C, in which 1 tendered the offices of this government in negotiations looking to a fresh consideration of the possibility and method of relieving Poland. It appears, 1 greatly regret to say, that there are still Important differences between the allien and cen tral powers as to the terms under whic h relief supplies may be sent to Poland. 1 am disappointed that I have not yet been succ essful In Induc ing the powers to conclude a definite settlement." The letter sent by the president to various nations, made public today Is as follows: "Your Majesty: In view of the over whelming disaster which has befallen the millions of non-combatant Inhabi tants of Poland, I feel justified by the universal and earnest expression of the sympathies of the American peo ple regardless of racial origin or poli tical sentiment, to suggest to your majesty that the subject of ways and means for the saving of those people who still survive, be given the further benevolent consideration of your maj esty's government. Should Avert Starvation of Millions. "While no one can fail to appreciate the suffering and sacrifices of the people primarily engaged in the exist ing war. nor the difficulties in the way of alleviating the hardships of those who are the incidental sufferers of the war, the death by slow or rapid starv ation of millions of innocent people is so awful a fact that such an out come should be averted if it Is within the compass of human effort to avert it. In the effort tci avert.lt. I con fidently pledge the co-operation of the people of the United States, if only the way can be found to make their co-operation effective. "May I, therefore, be permitted to suggest that an entirely fresh consid eration be given to the possibilities and efforts for relief for Poland and to tender the friendly offices of this government in negotiations to this end, it being understood that any plan proposed shall be of such a character as to be adapted to the accomplish ment of no other right than that of the relief ol the distressed Inhabitants of Poland. "In conclusion, I can only add that it is my sincere hope that your maj esty will see in this note no intention to interfere with the rights and poli cies of your majesty's government, but merely an attempt to express to your majesty the sympathy and compassion for the starving inhabitants of Poland, felt by the citizens of the United States a sympathy and compassion which they do not desire shall be evi denced merely by our word, but which they hope they may be permitted to express by assisting in the actual work of furnishing food to the starv ing inhabitants of Poland.

EXTRA MUSICAL TREAT IN STORE FOR LOCAL PEOPLE Everybody likes to bear good sing ing. That li why the Fortnightly Music club has engaged three of the finest exponents of vocal ait 1 cfole the public to participate in its Artists course for this season. Florcnio Maclieth, the coloratura soprano, is known on both continents as a rare artist with a personality as refreshing and delightful as a spring breeze. Her immense popu larity is proved by the fact that, pie ceding her engagements with the Chicago opera company, she is booked for twenty-five concerts. In direct contrast to the clear, flute-like tones of Miss Macliclh, are the deep, full tones of the brilliant contralto, Frances Ingram. Thous ands of mush -lovers heard her last season and, with a tour of seventy five concert appearances in addition to her work In the Chicago opera company ahead of her this season, thousands more will enjoy that priv ilege. The Fortnightly had some difficulty In securing at) open date, in fact the season tickets were print ed without Miss Ingram. When It was learned later that she would pass through Albuquerque the tick ets were stamped, and tho club is inc hiding this concert, at its own ex pense for the sumo prlco originally announced. of equal rank with the great Maud Powell, whom the Fortnightly presented so successfully last season, Is Rudolph Can., the famous Swiss pianist. When the European war broke out he responded to his coun try's call and was for a time a cap tain in the Swiss military reserves. When It was learned that he would not be needed for active service, the Swiss government permitted him to make a tour of the United States. He is ready to respond should Swit zerland at any time Join the belliger ents, and to prove that he Is with his country in spirit he has turned over the entire proceeds of several con certs to the Swiss relief fund. He Is a noted composer as well as one of the greatest pianists of the present day. Cecil Fanning, the last to appear, has youth, fire, and enthusiasm in addition to a wonderful voice and art. He Is entirely American trained and he bids fair to rival John Me Cormack for his singing of the songs and ballads the people love. His rec ords may be heard at Itosen wa Id's. Season tickets to this remarkable concert course are now on sale. Stu dent ticket, balcony, half price. INDEPENDENT G. 0.
