Former Em peror William, came to Holland a year ago last Monday, since tnai lime there has been.no demand, officially or unofficially," for his extradition or delivery up to the Allies, nor has Hol land at all s changed its viewpoint to ward him. The Associated Press learned this today from . sources that are unquestionable, Holland's viewpoint as hegards Wil liam Hohenzollern may be stated frankly as follows: The Netherlands, which , for centuries has accorded a political refuge to all, considers the former Emperor and Crown Prince as refugees, not as royalty bul as persons entitled" to the same rights as any plain Johann Schmidt who fled to Hol land during the war. This principle is so strongly held by the government, also by ' the Press of Holland that nothing is likely to change it, it is as serted, The Associated ; Press learns that Holland considers the farmer Emperor beyondextraditlon as there is no pos sible way ; legally to .hold him as - a criminal. . If the one time Emperor and Crown Prince desired ,to return to Germany they would be permitted to go. While it is possible Frederick William some day may return to Germany, official circles here are inclined to the belief that. William Hohenzollern is content to settle down to a life of a country gentleman ; at Doom, where he has bought a small estate. CONSUL KILLS SELF IN HOTEL Cary R.

MEMBERSHB? ENROLLMENT IS HIGHLY GRATIFYING Workers Will Give Especial At tention Today to Enrolling Industrial and Business Con cerns. , v The southern division is now leading the nation in the third Red Cross roll call. This splendid standing is mainly due, it is announced, to the "record of the smaller chapters. However, all city chapters have made a splendid beginning, and reports from most of them indicate thorough plans for a strong finish today and Tuesday. Headquarters of the southern di vision suggests that special emphasis be put today on enrolling Industrial concerns and business firms. Armis tice day will be the great day all over the country for general canvass on the streets.

J. L. McMillan, campaign manager for the Southern division, states that the returns, while incomplete, indicate that a great many chapters have se cured more members in this roll call than in any previous campaign, due to.trJe rivalry between many chapters in the division. The great majority of them have not rendered returns, but are holding their figures until they can be sure that their competitors will not take advantage of them. In practically, every community, al though last Sunday was officially Red Cross Sunday, plans had been an nounced for even greater attention to roll call In the churches today. All indications are that more than as many members as have beh enrolled during the past week will be enrolled Monday and Tuesday. Armistice day, November 11, will be celebrated by the Red Cross campaigners In conjunction with the American Legion, which is solidly behind the Red Cross drive, and it is expected that record-breaking enrollments will be made.
