The Lusi tania tragedy was- the sole topic of discussion at :ui extended meeting of the cabinet today, .at -which every member was present.

Reports are current that an an nouncement soon will be forthcoming regarding the procedure of the United States. Th" cabinet meeting today was the bust time that the president bad consulted with his advisers since t ho torpedoing of the Lusitania. A new clement in the discussion of the possible policy of the United State: was thrown into the situation today, it is believed in some quarters that Germany is aiming to compel the United states to break off diplomatic relations with her, so as to cut off American aid to P.elgium ami all ob servations by a powerful neutral of the way she treats her prisoners and foreigners within her borders.

That the report issued recently by. ! the municipal recreation rommitteo embodying its work of the first six months of its existence and proposed future activities docs not rest well with the park board seems apparent j from reports trickling in from va- jrious sources during the last few days. Although nothing dctinite has as yet i been stated still it appears from va 1 rious reports that the nark hoard d ops; I not like the things that the recreation . wiuiiLiLiee oiis uone nor inose tnings which it recommends to be done in the future. It was intimated Tuesday that the park board is harboring a feeling of jealousy against the recre ation committee. The two bodies were called into conference Monday night by Mayor Keller. What transpired at that ses sion is pronounced a closed book ex cept to the members of the two bodies. Ffforts to learn details of the discus sions that went on failed. All that could be learned was "we merely dis cussed in general the report of the recreation committee." This was from Mayor Keller. Othe r Fear to Talk. It appeared everyone else connect ed with the meeting feared to talk about it. L. M. Hammerschmidt, chairman of the recreation commit tee was tlrst asked and he referred the inquirer to F. G. Manning, city controller. Manning said "you better see the mayor." The mayor didn't happen to he in his ollicc just then j and Itichard Libel, chairman of the park board, was approached. Mr. Libel said he didn't want to do "any thing against the wishes of the ail ministration and you better see Mayor Keller." Mayor Keller was finally reached by telephone and after studying a mo ment said "we just discussed the com mittee's report." F. Ii. Barnes, director of municipal recreation, was not present at the meeting last night. He said he was aware 'of what transpired at the ses sion but wa,s not in a position to give out anything". Mayor Keller. Hlbel and Manning: sidestepped the question of any fric tion existing between the two bodies when told that such was the report. The great amount of work done under the direction of Mr. Humes in tho way of providing recreation and the contemplated plans have been report ed as a sort of a bone in the craw of the park board. Oliver 1 Mold Deal Figures. It is further icported that the plan of the recreation committee to make a big playground out of Oliver held "hurt" the park board. According to information from a reliable source everything towards leasing and plan ning of the grounds on iIiver field had been practically '.ompleted through the efforts of Barnes about two weeks ago. An ex-member of the park hoard. Horace elreen, is re ported to have seen Barnes' plans and talked with him informally on the matter. Shortly after it is reported the ex-member went to the park board and suggested to that body what a good scheme it would be for it to adopt it as its own. The suggestion was made at the meeting of the park board last Friday night. The recreation committee's report was scheduled to be presented to tho council Monday night but for somo reason it did not come up. It is stated that it will be a feature of tho session of the council committee of the whole next Tuesday. The recre ation committee will ask for an ap propriation.

May 11. Some striking parallels surest them selves in a comparison of the death rolls of the Titanic and the Lusi tania disasters. John Jacob Astor was the most conspicuous American lost on the Titanic, as Alfred Gwynne Vander bilt was on the Lusitania. Each inherited a great fortune; each v..is a dominant figure in the social life of the city: each died in gal lant self-sacrifice. Henry B. Harris was a notable figure in the theatrical world when the sinking of the Titanic ended his career. Charles Frohman, when the Lusitania went down, was perhaps the most distinguish ed figure in the managerial field. Jacques Futrelle was in the full l'owcr of his fame as a writer when he became a passenger on the Titanic. Justus Miles Format! had come to a like period when he took passage on the Lusitania. William T. Stead was an emi nent tigure .among Krglish jour nalists when he died on the Titanic. Libert Hubbard, who died on the Lusitania, was at least as well known among American jour nalists. Ishlor Straus had dedicated his life to philanthropy when he found his place among the victims of the Titanic. Lindon Bates, jr.. of the Lusitania's company, had given over almost entirely his financial affairs to further th work of the American commission for relief in Belgium. SHIPPING SCHEDULES ARE NOT DISTURBED BY LUSITANIA DISASTER ' XFW VOPK, May 11 . Indications hero today were that the destruction of the Lusitania by a. German sub marine would have little effect upon shipping schedules. It i estimated that 100 steamships are either in or headed for the war zone waters around the British isles, although a number of them had already sailed before the Lusitania was torpedoed. During the next two weeks. unless there are many cancellations of re servations. 5.00O American will be on steamers exposed to attacks by Ger man submarines. The Tuseania. the best ship of tho Anchor line (British), has successfully crossed the war zone waters by this time. She left Liverpool on Sunday iui .nr suiouii, i.,t secoim, arid a third class passengers. The American liner. Philadelphia, is on the high seas bound east itnd should reach the Irish sea Saturday. She has 910 passengers on board. The Anchor liner Trans ylvania, which left here on the after noon of the Lusitania disaster with 79 passengers, will reach the "zone" or. Sunday. The Fspagn of the French line, with 2r0 passengers, is bound for Bordeaux. Only two of the 40 persons to take passage on the White t?ar liner. Cym ric, which will start for Kngland on Friday, have cancelled their tickets. FRENCHMAN CRITICIZES U. S. FOR FAILING TO ACT IN LUSITANIA AFFAIR PARIS. May 11. Bitter criticism of the American government for "failing to call a halt on German barbarities," appears in the French press today as a result of the Lusitania disaster. Fx-Premier Georges Clemenceat: takes the opportunity to attack the efforts of Pres't Wilson to remain im partial "in the face of repeated out rages to Americans'." The ex-premier compares Pres't Wilson with Pope Benedict XV. saying that "both have been unable to decide vet whether Belgium neutrality was violated." "If Americans in a position to speak had spoken resolutely, perhaps the kaiser would have reflected before ordering the Lusitania torpedoed." I T I 1111 t ill l il (1 declared.
