-1' Allied Governments to Send
Note of Protest to Dutch
Raris, Nov. 21. —The Allied gov
ernments have decided to send an
official protest to the Dutch govern
ment against the violation of Hol
land's neutrality as a result of her
permitting German troops to cross
the province of Limburg in their re
treat from Belgium, according to,
the Echo de Paris.
Amsterdam. Nov. 21. —A continu
ous procession of Gorman troops is
passing through Limburg, homeward
bound, according to the Handelsb'ad.
At least 150.000 will cross the bor
der near Roosteren. where they will
be disarmed by the Dutch. Good:
order is prevailing by direction of
the officers.
' Limburg is a long, irregular prov. |
ince of Holland, nearly 105 miles In!
length. For twenty-fight miles from 1
its lower extremity it lies between ,
•the provinces of Limburg. Belgium i
and Rhine province, Germany. At
the widest point in this region it is
• nineteen miles between Belgian and
German soil. Just north of Sittard,
Limburg province narrows down to i
less than five miles.
It was reported from Paris on No
vember 19' that German troops re-j
turning to Germany from Belgium
had to cross the Dutch province of :
Limburg, and the charge was made
that the passage was made with the
sanction of the Dutch authorities.

Good News from Washington
Part of "BULL" DURHAM Tobacco Released
to Civilians at Home to "Roll Their Own"
% % * •
—With the little muslin sack of "BULL" DURHAM in the
pockets of every one of our fighting men on land and sea —
With good old "Bull" in the regular Army rations
'—And with the future demands of the War Department
abundantly cared for, part of "BULL" DURHAM Tobacco is offered
again to the men at home who "roll their own".
And to these men we want to say, that in giving up so freely all
your "Bull," when your Country asked for it for its fighting men,
you did a human "bit." However small that little muslin sack may
seem, you may have the satisfaction of knowing that your sack of
"Bull" was meat and drink to some boy waiting or fighting at the
front, and that your supply of "Bull" helped to make the distribution
to our forces full and complete, and make it. quickly. Now that
Washington assures us that such distribution is a fact, you will
welcome the "Makings" home again.
And with greater satisfaction and more pleasure than ever, you
will, we know, with your own hands, roll a cigarette again for yourself
a cigarette machines can't, imitate —the mildest , the most fra
grant, the most economical cigarette in the world. L
Are we wrong in thinking that you will be as proud as we are
of your little muslin sack of "Bull"?

TO TRACE 2,222
Ottoman Captors Show Cruel
ty at Its Peak in'Kut
El Amara
London, Nov. 21.—A "White
paper" on the treatment of British
prisoners in Turkey issued yester
day, says that of 16,583 prisoners
taken by the Shirks, 3,390 are re-?
ported to be dead, while no trace
can be found of 2,222. all captured
at Kut El Amara, so it is certain
they passed living into Turkish
hands, but no word has been heard
from them.
The Kut prisoners were forced
to march across the desert to Asia
Minor without food or medical at
tention. As a result, the white
paper says, "parties of men were
i lying exhausted under any shelter
j they could find in all stages of
1 dysentary and starvation, some dy
-1 ing, some dead, half . clothed and
! without boots, having sold every
thing to buy a little milk."
The survivors were forced to work
at tunneling on the Bagdad ra'J
way. Where no use eould be maJa
of them they were sent to camps in
the interior, being forced to march
across the Taurus mountains. An
Austrian officer, describing the
| march, said:
"It was a scene from Dante's In
| ferno."

Flying Upside Down Is Interesting to £adet Sergeant H. A.
Houtz, Who \Vas Central High School Football Star
How it feels to go up in a nftlltary
airplane for the first ttme. is graphi-.
rally told by Cadet Sergeant H. A.
Houtz, son of Adam H. Houtz, In a
letter home to his mother. Cadet
Houtz formerly was a member of the
Centrnl High School football team
and played end on the Getiysburg
varsity. He is stationed at a training
field In Princeton. His brother, Lieu
tenant Robert L. Houtz, a graduate
of the first officers' class at Port
Niagara, this week received orders
to go to France.
Cadet Houtz's letter follows:.
"Dear Mother:
"I must toll you all about my trip
to Mlneola Flying Field, Long
Island. '
"We started from Princeton at 8.15
this morning with packed lunches
and lots of pep; for being Prince
ton's graduating class, we were at
last to be given a flight In a real,
honest-to-goodness airplane. So
many times during our ground school
course did we align fusillages and
test engines of dummy airplanes,
that this trip, seemed at last, to be
our dream realized.
"•We arrived at Hazelhurst Field
at 12.10 and having fifty-two cadets
and eight officers In our party, we
just filled two-big trucks and started
on our way to Mitchell Field. On
arriving there, everything was found
in readiness and waiting for us.
There' were forty planes lined up
along one front. Some had engines
roaring, others were silent. So, na>
turally the trucks were deserted and
a mad rush for the aiplanes pro
ceeded. Some eager cadets had plant
ed themselves already in the seats,
but were sdon withdrawn, and all
were made stand back of a line of
"Captain Braig (in charge of tire
trip) stated clearly that everyone
would be taken up; byt that patience
was essential.
"Then I spoke up I said; 'Look!
captain, I have my goggles on al
ready.' Then he turned and winked
to the flying commander and said ot
me, 'Alright Houtz, take that first
De Havllland there.'
"I did, and after saluting its pilot.
Captain Bibb, I introduced mysulf
and hopped in. While I was strap
ping myself In the front seat the
crowd' was yelling, 'Good-by, Adam,
what kind of flowers do you like?'
etc. We were then facing the crowd,
the mechanics soon turned us around
and off we went.
The First Thrill
"We taxied over thq ground to
what seamed about 220 yards. I
could feel the old undercarriage
. bumping the sod, then finally that
' ; bumping ceaser, we took the ulr; we
• i were floating. Then my first scare
" | or thrill. We didn't rise fast enough,
i it seemed as though we would have
'| to land again. Then all of. a sud
. den up went the nose and we shot
. ! gradually up to 800 fpet. My eyes
| were on the earth, which was slip
• i ping away beneath us. I was watch
| ing an auto speeding along u road
. j in the same direction we were go
ing, and how we were beating him,
! when along came thrill number two.
I j Captain Bibb made a vertical bank
• j (wings straight up and down) Wow!
j What a feeling.
Upside Down,
) "Next I realized, as I had studied,
j centrifugal force actually holds you
> in, so 1 let go my death grip on
1' the plane. Then thrill number
- three, (and so soon after number
-jtwo) an "Immelnian turn" (in which
, you loop over to the side and go
1 back exactly the same direction
f from which you come) when I
looked up and expected to .see sky, I
s saw the earth, (we were upside down
3 for a second) I remembered Cap
-3 tain Brtpg's wink. It was certainly
; (< "Great"
"It took us several minutes to cir
cle up to 3,200 feet. Then thrill
number four, a wide spiral, in which
we clumsily nosed down to 1,500 feet
One more circle of the field and at
last (or so soon) we were about to
land, when ulong came thrill num
ber five. "We dipped towards earth,
shrp and fast; to continue in that
direction would mean a 'Curtains'
and a crash into the hangars. Many
thoughts flooded my brain. 'Did he
lose control?' 'Has something sud
denly broken?' We were then only
100 feet from the ground, when up
over the hangars we shot and land
ed safely on the other side. Oh! what
a relief, when I felt the old under
carriage once more bumping the sod
and slowing up. We turned and
taxied right up to the crowd, who
shot all kinds of questions as 'How
does it feel?' etc. All I could say was
'Great.' Your loving son,
