Where the lines crossed a word that word wns part of the message. Of ths many brilliant exploits to the credit of the Committee I have alwnys regarded the outwitting of the commandant at a fortress camp on the rollsh frontier as being one of the most brilliant. Here they were set a task which seemed lmpos lbl. The Oerman officer In charge wss a very shrewd, able ex-police official, who was up to every trick, who smelt an escape before It could be brought to a successful Issue and who Hknew. moreover, that id Britain thers was a society which was help ing prisoners to escape from captiv ity . Certain apparatus, such as com- kpassea, map, etc were necessary to eenape from this wiwernees. , ana many were the attempts which were made to set these articles through. man for whom they were Intended informing him that there was noth ing doing (that was his favorite American expression), and the young man would have to accept the situa tion philosophically. Ingenious and Plnclty. The prisoners got desperate. Like ail members of strafe camps, they were an ingenious and plucky lot, and clever as the commandant was, he could not prevent their having a great deal of their own way. For example, he knew that they had the run of the fort, and that If they could not get out there were precious few places within the fortress they could not get to. Locks, bolts, and bars' literally flew asunder un der their magic touch, and he had even found traces of their presence in hie own office. They were, in fact, like all the strafe prisoners- expert burglars a'nd if It was only a question of break Iie marinl h-n.j they would have Vd" their escape long- ago.-' But something more was required than Just getting clear of the camp. There were vast tracts of moorland to negotiate. Without maps and compasses escape was almost impos sible and it was for maps and com passes that he was constantly on the lookout. Code messages went through to London giving a continuous record of failure, and tt seemed impossible that the men could secure the neces sary assistance to escape. The Com mittee took counsel together, and a scheme was evolved. A number of the best maps that could be secured and a dozen of the finest small compasses that could be bought, together with a supply of pe dometers and small electric torches were purchased and packed into two small boxes. These were addressed to the ' commandant of the camp, and were smuggled out of Britain Into a neutral country. In that country they were posted to Germany, and having been thoughtfully labelled "On the Service of the Imperial Government Ur gent." (A label being printed for that purpoee In London) they went through to their destination, two prisoners at the camp having been previously advised by code that the parcels were arriving. la the course of time they reach ed this desolate fortress on the bor ders of Poland, by which time a new inscription written in German had appeared on the label "This parcel must not be opened until June 27th. It must be kept in a cool place." Had that announfcement appeared on the label when the parcels went through the German frontier custom house they would have been opened and examined. The inscription, how ever, was written in vanishing ink, which takes four days to'fade up, and which did not make its appearance until the parcels were well on their way into the interior of Germany. Those who sent them knew the con dition of the camp, and they knew that the commandant's private store house was the only cool place in the fortress It was the middle of June and a very hot summer. The parcels arrived, were examin- e,d by the commandant,' considerably puzzled, and, as the conspirators guessed, were taken to his store. Had they been addressed to a prisoner they would have been opened im mediately and if the delaying inscrip tion had appeared on any prisoner's parcel he commandant would have suspected, and weuld ; immediately have axamlned it. As It was, he' was just puzzled, put the two parcels In his store, like the obedient soldier . he was, and left them. Their arrival had .been duly noted by the prisoners. On tho Way to Freedom. By midnight the store had been burgled, the contents of the boxes re moved and distributed, paper bags full of sand had replaced their con tents, and the night -before the com mandant opened their parcels eighteen of the prisoners were on their way to freedom. Two escaped to Russia, one tramped seven hun dred miles across country and was (Continued On Page Sixteen) YANKEE POLICE.
