CMP DIX LIFE
OF OUR SOLDIERS
What Local City Official Saw at
Wrightstown on a Visit
There Yesterday.
Several Perth Amboyane visited
Camp Dix at Wrightstown yesterday
and upon their return were full of
stories as to the general appearance
of the boye at the national army can
tonment, and the way they are tak
ing to the army Hie. Optimism ap
parently reigns at the camp and the
boys are really well satisfied with
their lot, though some grumble a bit
%t the grub, but aa they have been
promised better food soon they bear
It with a grin.
Among the tales of the boy· were
one on Louia Pavlovsky, the shortest
man In Company I). At Inspection
the officer of the day looked Louis
over and aaked him how he ever got
there. The youthful Amboyan braced
us proudly and said, "They passed
me, sir." "They passed you for mess
sergeant," the officer replied; "you're
too short for anything else." And
Louis was promptly put on that job.
Soldiering appeals to most of the
boys and a recent example Illustrates
the point. One of the rookies ap
proached a superior offioer with a
smile and said:
"(Jreat day, ain't It, Captain?"
The captain called him down, tell
ing him the proper method of ap
proach to an officer and how to wait
for a return salute before speaking.
Without the salute the rookie re
plied, "I got cha, cap," and walked
away. ^
One of the local parties at the
camp yesterday was one taken down
by Alderman J>\ William Hilker. One
of the party, on their return to this
city, made the following comment:
"With our boys at Camp Dix the
visitor 1s most Impressed with the
neatness and clean cut appearance of
1 them all. Yesterday they had their
usual mid-week half holiday and sev
eral Perth Amboy parties were con
spicuous by their presence among the
boys from town.
wui BUiuiciB iiau a icauy tuiu tiiçcr
lui smile and greeting for all and It
goes to show they are all made of
the right stuff, even If the smile le a
little forced when one Inquires of
them how they like their camp life.
"They feel that conditions will Im
prove as supplie* and equipment are
continually arriving In increasing
quantities, although some of thom
think that should a few train loads of
rice fail to arrive It would be missed
from the bill of fare for at least one
meal. The most of them felt as if
they would rather have it served un
cooked along with some old shoes In
front of a church. They also Im
pressed one by a remark casually
dropped once-in a whilfrthat the ordin
ary bean crop had been rather prod
uctive during the past year or two.
But with It all they looked as trim as
a pin and trained right up to the
minute.
"They get up early and go to bci
early and work all day and sleep hard
all night. They are the picture of
health and when the most of them
come up to see us soon, maybe on Sat
urday next, we are the ones that are
going to be surprised and agreeably
surprised at that.
"One of the bits of news from camp
Is that Company D of the Jllth which
contains most of our boys, is the crack
company of the regiment, something
for us all to be proud of. One little
tit bit let drop yesterday concerning
one of our boys (no names mentioned)
who was feeling rather glum at the
time, was asked by his superior, how
he liked It said he didn't like it for
a "d
"How do you like it yourself?" No
answer.
"Another hustling young rookie
from Perth Amboy when asked yes
terday how he liked to have to lay
off a half a day said he didn't mind as
he thought a half a loaf was better
than no loaf at all.
"The camp at present has all the
ear marks of a western boom town
with the objectlonal features cut out
and about a hundred times as large
and well worth a visit at least once a
week, especially while the weather
man is so kind, and It also gives our
boys some diversion, all work and no
play, etc., and they also let It be
known yesterday that if the Perth Am
boy girls want to become even' more
popular all they have to do is to come
along."

London Has Been Waiting News of Haig's New Thrust—At

With Satisfactory Progress—Is Great Blow at Enemy
Bases at Zeebrugge and Ostend.
By -WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS
■With the British Armies In the Field, Oct. 4:—British forces hav^
advanced more than a mile deep int ο the German lines 1n what looks to*
day to be one of the war's greatest b attles. Prisoners already taken rcaclf
into four figures. Several villages h ave already been taken.
The drive was still on this after noon. Halg struck his blow early
this morning, the climax to a whlrlw ind of artillery that for days has beat
relentlessly, unceasingly on the Ger man positions.
In all respects the blow Impress ea one as among the biggest if not
the biggest of all the battles of the g reatest of all wars.
Fighting Is on In an unprecedent ed scale of magnitude In men. muni·
tlon, guns and territory. At Zonneb eke alone three enemy divisions (a
German division ordinarily contains 16,000 men) were ordered to attack
and retake ground they lost In the fl ret staggering impact of the British
blow.
The Germans—all three division s—were caught in the British bar
rage. The terrific fire literally churn ed the poor devils into a bloody por

von Bernstorfl carried on hla propa

office. — —
This revelation came on the heels
of disclosures which showed liow Bclo
Pasha, no.. -jiijrieoned in France, as α
traitor, came to this country to carry
on his work of influencing newspapers
in behalf of Germany. Hugo Schmidt
resident agent Of the Deutscher bank
of Berlin, appeared before Attorney
Lewis, of New York state, In response
to a subpoena, and this afternoon j
turned over to him copies of wie
lesg me&sageg he had exchanged with
the bank In Berlin, Those meste.ges
showed that the code name for von
Bernetorft was "Charles Gledhill."
The code for the Guaranty Trust
Company of New York, where some of
the German funds were deposited,
was "Fred Hooman." Another code
designated the Berlin foreign office.
It was "William Foxley."
In statements to the United Press
today, the authorities indicated that
trace had been found of a pouring out
of literally millions of dollars—much
,of it to Americans—on Count von
Bernstorff's orders, through the
Deutscher bank.
Hugo Schmidt, prominent German
banker here and head of the Deutsch
er banks, first located through the
Bolo Pasha Intrigues, Is to be exam
ined this afternoon, by those probing
the case.
"Millions upon millions pf dollars
end securities have passed through
the Deutscher bank," said Perle>
Morses expert accountant entructed
with investigation of the Bolo Pasha
I and otheir intrigues.
"If the source of these sums and
'^ecuritiee became known the Informa
tion would no doubt be valuable for
the apprehension of many men closely
connected with Germany," he con
tinued.
The widest possible search for Just
this Information is now under way by
iNew York authorities. Officials In
dicated today that the new govern

in the Trading With the Enemy Act
/might be turned over for the present
exclusively toward running down the
