Many Interesting Facts
Washington, ct. 22. American naval
stations, dotting the Frech coast from
Bpain' to the channel have created a
'fifty mile "forbidden zone" for sub
marines around France.
The ('northern bombing squadron"
operating along the Belgian coast con
tributed largely to keeping Ostend and
&ee!rugge U-boat bases bottled up.
These institutions, plus a vast amount
of new naval work, including the
northern mine barrage locking the last
testes of the U-boats, wero pointed out
ly. Assistant Secretary of the Navy
Roosevelt, as samples of- American nav
el achievements abroad.
Roosevelt, who had contracted influ
enza en route on his way from Europe,
was back at 'his desk for the first time
in many weeks. He was very enrhusi
stic over what he had seen. Hig pio
ture of - United States efforts on sea
and along the shores from Scotland to
tap Adriatic formed a hitherto unre
pealed account of what has been un
Roosevelt taid that everywhere he
vent there was praise for the United
States naval forces. Admiral Beatty
(told him that the American grand fleet
assigned to one of the important posi
. tions, is one of the most efficient sec
tions of That ''magnificent organiza
tion." He emphasized that United State
forces are not confined merely to con
voying across the ocean and in the for--,
tgn danger zone, nor is it confined to
chaser end destroyer patrol and battle
eaip guard duty. Instead, it has amount
d to th creating of numerous stations
- and building of many new units, in
cluding a big oil pipe' line across Seot-
land., ; . , ...
The northern mine barrage was par-
tieularlv: pointed out. It is known the
idea originated with Koosevelt more
than a year a?.
Many factories in is country, Ho
mid, worked practically all winter on
materials for this barrage.
Bluejackets built most of tha. ta
tions. They built houses from airplane
packing boxes. From 200 to 300 men
re in each of the station whiea are
licated often on uninhabited islanda or
in obscure fishing villages. A bomb

They cannot speak honest words,
having but a single meaning. Their ac
ceptance of conditions for an armistice
it so phrased as to mean' anything or
nothing. Their promises of constitution
al reforms have no present value.

Nci peace announcement from Germany
is worth anything unless it is guaran
