HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH LXXXIV— No. 159 • U. 5. OFFICIALS ARE DISSATISFIED WITH BERLIN'S REPLY TO LATEST 0. S. NOTE President Wilson Prepares to Leave Cornish, N. H., to Consider Grave Situation With Members of His Offi cial Family GERMANY AGAIN EVADES REAL POINTS IN ISSUE Talk Concerning Severance of Relation Heard, but Not in Official Circles; Disap pointment Is Expressed by Many Washington, July 10.—Secre tary I.ansing will take the Ger man note to President Wilson at Cornish, X. H.. as soon as the of ficial text arrives. The President will then decide when he will re turn to Washington. Hie Presi dent conferred with Secretary Tu • multy at noon to-day and asked that Secretary I.ansing bring the note to him. t By Associated Press Washington, P. 0., July 10. Al though the official text of Germany's note on submarine warfare had not reached here to-day, the press copy which was read by officials was ac cepted as verification of earlier im pressions that Germany had refused to give the United States the assurance asked for in the American note of June 9. Everywhere in official quarters the unsatisfactory character of the reply was discussed along with the probable action that the United States would be compelled to take as a result of Ger many's unwillingness to concede to Americans the right to travel on the Idgh seas on peaceful merchantmen of any nationality. President Wilson will start from Oornish, N. H., for Washington in a Mk ay or two to consider with his cabinet the grave situation impending. Com ment in official quarters to-day was sparing as to the course that would be pursued, the general feeling being that nothing should be said until the Presi dent had returned. On the other hand those in official quarters familiar with diplomatic pre cedents and the progressive develop ment of the American attitude l>elieved that, ha ring stated its position and asked for assuran< l es which now have been refused the only source left oi>en for the Vnited States seemed to be an announcement that it intended to as sert its rights as established under the rules of international law. This would mean in effect that the United States would await a violation by Germany before taking action to compel respect for the rights asserted. There was a revival of talk con cerning the severance of diplomatic relations, it being recalled in official circles that in the now famous cabinet meeting of May 11, when the sinking of the Lusitania was first considered, there was an informal understanding that if the negotiations of the United States to secure reparation from Ger many for the destruction of American lives in that tragedy failed, the Am erican Government might be justified [Continued on Page 9.] Uncle Sam's man will stop every day with news from Home, if you will call the Circulation Department on the phone.

H. Wolfe, proprietor of the barber shop in the Common wealth Hotel, who says he shaved the man.

Holt said he believed he would have his whiskers shaved off. Only his mustache was allowed to remain. "I am positive," said Mr. Wolfe, "that it was Holt."
