Officials of the Red Cross have .been so busy m Imw York for the last three weeks in preparing drafts for Prance it was almost impossible t give attention to the new recruits constantly applying for enrollment When it is considered that recruits must have their complete kit, down to the extra pair of shoe laces, found for them, their passports applied for. granted and vised by the various con suls-general and Anally given a thor ough course of instruction in many details of their work, the enormous amount of work and responsibility put on the shoulders of the officials in shipping hundreds of. men can toe im agined.

Before they attacked today on the sector between the canal du Nord and Croiselles, on the northern battle front, the Germans for four hours smothered the British with every con ceivable form of hate that a gun could throw. The enemy depended chiefly on large numbers of trench mortars to cut the wire entangle ments. The British had had warnings .that the Germans would use great quantities of gas shells. This prov ed to be true, although there was nothing new in the type of gas and the British gas masks appear to have been most effective. The British tommies and their offi cers fought for hours with their gas masks on, (but even this drawback could not dampen their jubilation at the havoc they caused as the German infantry presented itself in the form of point blank targets. Nine German divisions negotiated the assault in this section but they met with stren uous resistance. British machine gun ners did terrible execution as the Germans moved forward. As on Thursday, the Germans today depended on tremendous artillery bombardments and massed attacks with great numbers of troops to HUNS ORDER NO CAPTIVES TAKEN London, Thursday, March 21 Ger man officers operating in Finland and the Ukraine have ordered the soldiers to take no prisoners, but to hang all Red Guards as they are only bandit3, German newspapers report George Ledebour, an independent Socialist leader, as declaring in the reichstag. Deputy Ledebour added: "On the one hand we make peace with the Bolsheviki and on the other we hang them. This is the best way to stir up hatred that will last forever against anything German." TWO ENLIST IN MERCHANT MARINE Two young men of Hallett street this morning presented themselves to Special Agent Hindle to be enrolled for training in the) merchant marine. John Michael Yankura was the first to be signed up. He enrolled as a cook and will be examined this even ing by Physical Examiner Flynu.

Many of the boys enrolled from Bridgeport will be hard at work as sembling the hundreds of big motor lorries laying at various French ports within the next few days and will start on their long overland trek to Paris where the finishing touches will be given the big land ships before their assignment to active service sta tions. It was also announced by the Red Cross officials that the Locomobile Company has reserved a 4 large num ber of test trucks on which to ex amine the recruits which will be sent by Manager Skelley to be tested in their skill in handling the big ve hicles. All recruits enlisted by either Lieutenant Bowman or , Lieutenant Nester, and who have been accepted by the Red Cross, will in all proba bility be given their final instruc tions today or Monday by Manager Skelley and may expect to sail for the other jade soon. Cables from every front in Europe, France, Italy, Serbia and even in strife-torn Russia, ail tell of the cry ing need for men to drive trucks which will bring help and encourage ment to the human fragments left after the tide of battle has receded. Men for the service must be exempt from draft, and must have thorough knowledge in the handling of motor vehicles, or they must be mechanics able to do minor repair work on the trucks. Thoir ability to either drive or work as a mechanic will be tested at the Loco works, while they will be examined for their physical condition by a regularly appointed doctor of the Red Cross organization.

At least 40 German divisions have been identified and the German artillery concentration Is the greatest that has -been seen on the western front. It is reported that in one section the Germans came across No Man's Land in regular formation an!3i gaps in the ranks were quickly filled to present a solid front. The Germans are said to have stopped when they reached the 'barbed wire and to have out it iby hand under a heavy fire from rifles, machine guns and artil lery. However, the report is not ver ified, but it is certain that the Ger mans advanced in more dense forma tions than ever beflore and naturally suffered grievous casualties. Six German divisions Thursday de livered a very heavy attack against the British south of Quentin. Despite the fact that the enemy had a supe riority in numbers, the British hung doggedly to their posts throughout the day and it was only after the' Ger mans had stopped the assault that the British withdrew their lines somewhat in order to give them protection by means of the Oise river and the flood ed ground arounldi it. A further attack here will be ex tremely costly to the enemy. FRENCH REPULSE PARISIAN RAID Paris, Friday, March 22 -At 9 o ciock tonignt a group or enemy group of aeroplanes crossed the lines and bombs were dropped on Compeigne and several towns in that region. Sev. eral njachines advanced farther to the south but were forced to turn back by the fire of our artillery. The alarm immediately was given in Paris and a half hour later the "all clear" signal was sounded. Apparently the Germans had in tended a raid on Paris itself, but French airmen rose to meet the on comers and not one machine succeed ed in reach the capital. NEARING RELEASED . ON $5,000 BONDS New York, March 23. Pleas of not guilty to charges of violating the es pionage law in the publication and distribution of a pamphlet entitled "The Great Madness," were entered in the Federal court here today by Scott Nearing, in his own behalf and by the American Socialist society through Morris Hillquist, counsel.

Well, Heaven preserve us from our friends." The senator said he hoped the Dutch would not take reprisals, which could be carried out easily against the un fortunate interned prisoners in Hol land. Deputy Van Kel, a Socialist, de clared the seizure of the (Dutch fleet by President Wilson under the pre text of war necessity is as bad as the violation of Belgium by Germany on the same pretext. We will maintain our independ ence, tome what may," he said. Tree American people have been misin formed and their indignation will be great when they learn the truth." Deputy Hooft, an anti-revolutionist. said: "America has followed tne practice of a brigand by holding a Distol to our heads. The associatea governments have acted like common thieves." Amiral Roch said the United States was taking advantage of the war to create its own merchant fleet and de clared that England, aware of this, was naturally seeking by seizing neu tral tonaage, to fill out the gaps in its own merchant marine arising out of the submarine warfare, but neverthe less England, he thought, would fail to keep its new competitors, the United States and Japan, out of the British spheres of interests The En tente powers were attempting to place blame on Germany for aolng exactly what they themselves were doing. The neutrals were placed in a pre carious position not by the subma rine warfare. Admiral Roch said, but primarily by America's refusal to per mit exports of foodstuffs, fodder and fertilizer to European neutrals in or der to prevent their re-exportation to Germany and secondly, by the neu trals being forced, through fear of starvation, to surrender their tonnage. ACCUSED MAN IS OUND OVER ON URDER CHARGE As an aftermath of the shooting which took place February 2, at 198 Knowlton street, when several men got into a fight over f3, and Moses Owens died from his wounds, Charles Johnson, his ' assailant, was today charged with murder before the City Court. Judge Wilder ordered John son bound over for the May term of the Superior Court Thomas Jones, Who was also mixed up in the fight, was bound over for the May term of the Superior court in bonds of $500 while the charge of as sault against Jeff Owens, brother of the murdered man was nolled by Judge Wilder. For some time Moses Owens liger ed at the hospital, and it was thought perhaps his life might be saved, but a few days ago he took a turn for the worse and notwithstanding the heroic efforts of the doctors he died. Immediately Owens' death was an nounced the charge of assault with in tent to kill was erased against John son and the charge of murder substi tuted.
