Germans Discuss Possibility of
Another Clash Soon With
British Fleet.
Copenhagen. June 1 (via London).—
The German newspapers are all print
ing anniversary articles on the naval
battle of the Skagerrak, the impreci
sion being quite generally expressed
that a new battle between the British
and German fleets is a possibility in
the near future.
German naval writers for some time
have been discussing the prospect of
the British fleet once more tr> ing con
clusions with Admiral Von Scheer's
armada Many of the writers have
been governed by the prevalent Ger
man skepticism regarding the losses of
British ships claimed by the German
admiralty but denied by the British
and without comment omit ships like
thp Tiger, the Warsplte and the Marl
borough from their calculations of
British levies The German admir
alty. although retaining the name of
the Tiger and a battleship of the
Queen Elizabeth « lasg, namely the
Warspite, or* Its table of losses, mod
estly brackets them with the comment,
"denied by British admiralty."
The anniversary articles are also in
tended to arouse enthusiasm for the j
national submarine subscription in aid
of families of German sailors lost in
submarine warfare.

Washington, June 1 __A civilian j
commission composed of Abraham
Klexner of New Vork, Dr William II. '
Welch of Baltimore, and Nathan
Strauss of New York will Inspect the
naval hospital ship Solace and the
navy's method of treating sick sailors
Already Admiral Mayo Is conduct
ing an Investigation of charges of mis
treatment contained In a round robin
signed by several enlisted men who
were patients on the Solace.
The civilian commission conferred
with Secretary Daniels today before
going to inspect the naval hospital In
the vicinity of the fleet rendezvous.
They were told by the secretary that
the charges of Improper treatment of
the men were being user! to ferment a
spirit of unpatriotic resistance to the
regUtration law.
