It is understood the mission's formal report will be sensational in its I revelation of the complaints, or the. Serbian government and people over political confusion now existing as to Serbia. The general morale ot every citizen it waa reported has been ser- iously affected by ignorance and suspicion as to allied plans. The commission, lt is understood will firmly urge a formal statement by the allies which will clearly set for their views on the Jugoslav problem. FRENCH PLAN FOR REPRISAL IN RIGA GULF Ry J. W. T. MASON Written for The United Press. New York. Oct. 22.—The first complete victory the Russian revolutionists have won, has been accomplished many believed a great naval disaster was about to overtake the Russian* for the same fear was felt by Russia's allies. Yet German "efficiency" failed to the escape of the entrapped Rus- meet the essentia] part of the prob- sian fleet from the Gulf of Riga archipelago into safe haven in the Gulf: of Finland. The accomplishment of; this feat of seamanship is as remark-'. able a performance as any naval en-j counter of the war. There is plenty of hardship in soldiering, but what soldier minds hard work and the bitterest cold of winter when he is rewarded by having a batch of pretty .girls like these knit warm comforts for him ? These charming young tladies visited the soldiers to entertain them by acting in the play, "Oh Boy." While waiting for the show to begin, like all patriotic girls, they spent their spare time knitting. ' Hy l'nited Press. London, Oct. 22.—France's coup in destroying or crippling at least seven out of the eight Zeppelins with which it is generally believed the Germans made their raid over London, gave powerful impetus today to demand for immediate assumption of aerial offensive by England. Many newspapers were unsparing in tbeir criticism of the government's failure to start the reprisal program which was announced more than three weeks ago. There were indications today that this criticism would center within the next few dayB In a powerful drive for action thru parliament. Some pointed questions will undoubtedly be hurled at the government leaders. What the average Londoner cannot understand is why the French should be so extraordinarily successful in bringing down German aircraft while the supposedly perfect British defense system failed. The incident served to create the most intense irritation in many quarters today because it developed a belief that the government was not bending every energy toward protection of the people at home. One criticism heard today waa that intense rivalry between the R. N. A. U. (naval aviation service) and the R. V. C. (army aviation service) was injurious and that the announced air ministry's first task should be toward obtaining co-operation rather than competition between these two branches. Faris dispatches today indicated that the French bag was of Zeppelins of an entirely new type—the dirigibles which for months have been secretly tested out over Lake Constance. Official statements accounted for the destruction or capture of four ot these. Two others were officially announced as passing a point in southern France "out of control," A seventh disembarked Its wounded and aped away toward Switzerland. Of the last three, private dispatches mentioned one downed near Mon- tlgny LeRoi, another destroyed be tween Gap and Sisteron (apparently the two which the official statement declared were seen "out of control" and a third and last probably de stroyel in the Alps. One of the French captures was the L-49, one of the raiding squadron which surrendered In the skies and landed, absolutely unharmed with its crew of thirty men. one mangled bodies carpeted the ground in the liiitish advance or were included in the constant stream of prisoners- were of the 1918 class of youths. Nothing icon Id illustrate Germany's waning man power more forcibly than this crowding of mere boys into the front ranks. Thousands of these German boys have been sacrificed in the terrible British artillery fire. One letter found in the pocket of just such a breadless boy-soldier declared: "Of my company of 140 men all have been lost except 18—and the same ratio applies to my whole regiment." One boyish German diarist entered this note: "In four days the British have smashed seven of our divisions." A captured battalion commander's report exhibited today at headquarters complains that his own German heavy artillery batteries shelled the German lines for twenty minutes and tbat two companies had telephoned they were leaving their positions. There is yet another evidence of desperation of the German high command over this drain on its man power. That is in the constant withdrawal of troops from the Russian front for duty here on the west. For months the Germans bave been shunting troops from the eastern war theater. Now they are bringing guns an | from that section to bolster up their batteries. Captured documents show that many of the pieces smashed in the great Flanders drive have been thus replaced. There is no mistaking the fact that Hindenberg is now giving Crown Prince Rupprecht all available German artillery and men. Fresh divisions are brought up with orders to hold at all costs and to retake capture positions at any price. FRANCE IS III E ! REMOVE WORKS; FEAR RAIDS.! j By United Press. Petrograd, Oct. 22.—Munitions' : works in Petrograd are being moved i from the city because of fear of Zep-! S pelin raids.

Rome, Oct 22.—Tho Vatican can not understand why the Allies have not answered Pope Benedict's peace plea.

SUPPORTS SNAKE A.S USEFUL By United Press. Washington. Oct. 22.— The bench show of the American Snake Fanciers' Association, slated for Rochester. N. Y.. next January, has been cancelled because Peter Gruber "Snake King," says it's unpatriotic to take the serpents away from their tasks of killing off food destroying rodents. "At army cantonments it has been found that snakes are better than cats for ridding the place of rats and a busy snake in a granary Is worth a dozen rat traps." said Gruber. "It would be treason to deprive the country of this great source of food conservation and I am glad the American Forestry Association has called attention to the value of snakes." ♦ A * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * THIS WEEK'S WRATHEIR.
