New York. Oct. 2.—Down the Bay:
It is six forty-five a. m. and a sleepy
trickle of reporters and sound camera
men collects in front of pier A, the
Battery. The skyscrapers of lower
Manhattan stand cool and remote
from life in the after-dawn quietude.

The cutter casts -ts lines and chugs
off toward the misty liners which wait
on the horizon. Already a stud poker
game is in progress in the little cabin;
this game has been in session longer
than most ship news reporters can
remember. Coffee boiis and makes
the air fragrant.
Presently we are alongside the
Fianconia, homeward bound from a
cruise. The prow is nicked from
bumping a freighter in fog, a mishap
fortunately trivial, and the camera
men aim their boxes f.-aui ically at the
biuised keel. The Santa Clara is nex l

is nothing if not obliging. Indeed,

news men have routed them out.

## Tears Ago Today: The Battle of Arras started. Removal of the
Belgian base from Antwerp to Ostend began under fire of German siege
guns. Stocks of American concerns manufacturing or dealing in war
supplies were shooting up, as reports came in indicating that the Euro
pean conflict was likely to be prolonged for months; and food prices
were rising in the U. S. because of heavy European purchases. Generals
Ferdinand Foch and Paul von Hindenburg had birthdays.

Oct. 2, 1914 —The men who were to
become the foremost adversaries in
the World War, Foch and Hindenburg
had their Natal Anniversaries the
same day.
Paul Ludwig Hans Anton von Ben
echendorf und von Hindenburg now
was commander of the German IX
army, in the south of his native Po
land. The antagonist whose over
whelming defeat at Tannenberg had
made Hindenburg a national hero, j
was dead. After that Debacle, Alex
ander Samsonov, 55, went into a wood
and shot himself. He was buried
among the thousands of Russians who
died obeying his orders. His widow
coming into Germany with the Red
Cross, searched among the bodies un
til she recognized his by a medal for
bravery that he wore.
On his 67th birthday. Hindenburg’s
IX Army, with the Austrian I army
on its right, was pushing hack Rus
sians toward Wnrsaw, where a great j
struggle was to take place.
On his 63rd hirtnuay, Ferdinand
Foch was assistant to tne command
er-in-chief, .loifre, with the task oi
coordinating the movements of the
various French armies in the north
with those of the British and Belgian
j forces. The French generals could
: advise, they could not command, their i
■ allies.
Eighty miles west of beseiged Ant- ;
werj), »ne liist battle of Arras was j
raging. First, the French II army |
ol -.yen. de Castelnau. brought up '
from Lorraine over a ciicuitous route
in those cookie-box cars---homines 40,
chevaux 8 had attempted to out
flank the German right wing north of
the Oise and cut off the arm the j
enemy was reaching toward the sea.
Six enem corps, detached from vari
ous parts of the line in a hurry, were
hurled into the combat, and after
fighting as bloody and furious as
any in the war, Castienau’s outflank
ing attempt came to a stop on the '
Somme. Then Gen. Maudhuy was |
given command of a newly formed
French X army and ordered to try
an outflanking movement a little
further north. Instead of being able
to pass around the German flank, he
he found himself o nthe 2nd strug- j
gling desperately to hold Arras.
Britain, awakened now to the prob
ability of the success of the German
sweep norts and capture of Belgian
ports, disclosed intentions of mining
the North Sea.
Oct. 2, 1700 Charles II gave away
his entire country! He bestowed the
kingdom of Spain, including all its
possessions in the Americas, upon
Philip of Anjou of Anjou, aged 17,
who was no relative and had no claim
upon the thorne
Charles had no direct heir, and in
his will, made this date, he bequeath
ed his throne to the Bourbon prince
Four weeks later he was dead.
Philip also gave away the crown,
had to take it hack, tried to give it
away again.
Lait and I chat about the other side;
he says that the two most absorbing
news personalities in Europe .vhile he
was there were Dillilnger and Hueyl
Long; Europeans were vastly mystifi
ed by both.
