More Action on Peace
Appeal, Says Burian
Amsterdam. Sept. 24.—1n an inter
view given to a Berlin newspaper.
Baron Burian, Austro-Hungarian for
eign minister, said he was not sur
prised at the reception of his peace
note. Naturally he did not suppose
that the entente would straightway
declare readiness to enter into peace
"In a situation like the present,"
continued the minister, "it is some
times necessary to clarify things by
means of reagents. The note was
such a reagent. It has already pro
duced remarkable phenomena and
will do so still more in the near fu
"Very extraordinary, for instance,
was the remarkable rapidity of Pres
ident Wilson's reply. Clearly, Presi
dent Wilson wanted to anticipate the
other entente governments. He al
ways had the ambition to be a world
arbiter and has not abandoned that
U. S. Losses by Submarine
Offset by Finished Ships
Washington, Sept. 24.—Deliveries
of completed vessels from shipyards
in the United States during July and
August. Shipping Board reports to
day show, were more than enough
to offset the submarine losses of
America since the beginning of the
war. Ships sunk aggregate 541,925
deadweight tons, while new ones put
in service in the two months aggre
gated 610,779 deadweight tons.
Total allied and neutral losses dur
ing the war have amounted to 21,.
404,913 deadweight tons, while new
allied and neutral construction had
totalled 14,247,825 tons, with ton
nage of enemy ships received by the
allies added to this total. The net
losses during the entire war period
is shown to be 3,362,088 deadweight
1,799 New Christian
Endeavor Societies
Washington, Sept. 24. Three
years ago the Christian Endeavor So
cieties of the South agreed on a five
year program which should seek to
organize 100 new societies. At the all
south convention of Christian En
davorer Societies, held at Memphis,
it was reported that 1,799 new so
cieties and more than 100,000 mem
bers had been gained in the first
three years of the campaign. It is
probable that 2,500 new societies will
be organized during the period in
stead of the original 1,000 sought.
This phenomenal growth is marked
with an evangelistic earnestness that
[ has done wonders for those churches
' in which the society is organized. '
