HIDE AND SEEK IN THE NORTH SEA
The German high seas fleet has been cruising in
the North Sea without meeting Great Britain's
naval forces, although it is ready to accept battle.
The English have, on their part, been eager for
I months to try conclusions with the Germans on the
sea. Such are the reports that come from the
scenes of strife. If both sides are really as eager
aa that for a contest of warships it may not be verj
long before the greatest sea conflict in the fcistorj
of the world will occur.
In case Admiral von Pohl, in charge of the Ger
man fleet, is not deliberately inviting an engage
ment with the British by cruising in the North Sea,
he at least is trying to move the opposing fleet into
a position less favorable for itself and more to the
advantage of the Germans. That he will be able
to coax the British to chase his ships over his mined
areas is, however, somewhat doubtful. By trying
to reach the Atlantic ocean he might more reason
ably expect to maneuver the British fleet out of its
Just what that present position is, of course, can
not be determined because of the secrecy which the
censors have succeeded in maintaining. It can
readily be guessed at, however. The main body of
the British fleet is, according to ail indications,
based at a point northwest of the British Isles,
where it is prepared to block exits either at the
North Sea and through the English channel. In
that position it would not allow the German fleet
to steam for the Atlantic ocean without a battle.
There has been some criticism concerning the ap
parent idleness of the British battleship fleet dur
ing all these months, for with the exception of
those participating in the attack at the Dardanelles,
the great British warships have apparently been
doing nothing very conspicuous. These vessels have
been accomplished a purpose, however, for although
they certainly have not charged upon the shore bat
teries,—mines and submarines protecting the Ger
man coast and fleet,-they have by their unseen
presence thus far kept the German fleet from cruis
ing toward the Atlantic, away from its shelter.
When that fleet actually starts for blue water
the expected naval battle of the North Sea will
THE CITY FORESTER HEARD FROM
Several months ago, before we had a City For
ester, many of us doubtless convinced ourselves
without knowing exactly why, that a Forester
would be a fine thing to have. Other cities have
'em and, besides, we figured he would be useful
each December chopping down the municipal Christ
mas tree,—a task which caused the amateur woods
men of our City Commission a good deal of annoy
ance last time.
Beyond that we doubt whether anybody, includ
ing the City Commissioners, had a very 'definite
idea of what a Forester is for,—or of what one
costs. Indeed we rather believe nobody,—not even
the Commissioners,—would have objected very
strenuously if Mr. Mueller, who ultimately got the
job, had simply chopped the municipal tree each
Christmas and done nothing else all year 'round
save draw his pay.
But Mr. Mueller, evidently, is not that kind of a
Forester. He surprised the City Commissioners by
sending them a communication yesterday which
conveyed to them the startling information that
there are things about town that a Forester who
knows his business can do. In fact Mr. Mueller
let the Commissioners know that he has had eight
HARRIgfKTRG STAfI-INDEPENDENT, WEDNESDAY EVENING. APRTT, 2B
men at work doing presumably useful things to the
trees and also that this had cost the City SSOO over
and above Mr. Mueller's salary. Moreover he said
that he will need $3,000 more to carry out the work
he has planned for the rest of the season.
If we are rightly informed the Commissioners
were a bit surprised on receipt of the information
that having a Forester costs money. They, perhaps,
never stopped to figure out that a Forester would
need any help in going around the city chopping
down dead trees, hauling the trunks away, doctor
ing the sick ones, trimming off dead branches, pick
ing the caterpillars from the high boughs, bugging
the potato vines, causing arrests for violating the
tree ordinance and digging out the fast-growing
poplar roots everytime they run afoul of a sewer
pipe. The Commissioners seemed to think the
Forester's salary would pay for all that together
with other incidental expenses and so they didn't
make any budget provision save for the Forester's
own pay envelope.
But our young Forester has demonstrated he is
a real Forester with plenty of energy and a deter
mination to earn his salary whether the Commis
sioners like it or not. He should be encouraged.
Give him the $3,000 he needs, gentlemen of the
Commission, and let him make good! We have an
especially strong leaning toward a public official
who guarantees he will be satisfied with a second
hand motorcycle instead of a 1915 model auto
COLLEGE WORK BEYOND COLLEGE WALLS
Educational institutions in the South are said to
be watching with interest certain social service
innovations at the University of North Carolina
and to be considering the advisability of imitating
the activities of that university. The cause of edu
cation would surely benefit by a general adoption
of the new ideas of the purpose of schools.
Reports of the work being done at the University
of North Carolina make very interesting reading
matter. They show that an institution of higher
education can extend its direct influences far be
yond its own confining walls, and can be of great
value to the general public.
Among the services which this school is render
ing is the conducting of night schools for negroes
and of correspondence courses for non-resident
working men. These features are in addition to
the summer school courses for public school teach
ers, which are Very popular. The University also
has taken the initiative in directing package librar
ies, reaching almost five hundred communities.
It is evident that conditions in rural life are
especially benefitted by these activities. The uni
versity in iact conducts rural conferences which
have as their object the improvement of t/hose con
ditions. There are districts in ail states that are
urgently in need of educational influences, and
they would be fortunate if they all had the oppor
tunities which are being presented in North Caro
lina and being added to from time to time.
Most of the unusual work undertaken by the
1 niversity of North Carolina, of course, rests on
faculty members, but in some of it the students are
the active agents. The boys have, for instance, or
ganized for the purpose of keeping clean the streets
of the little college town, and are thus expending
part of their energies in a very practical way.
Pennsylvania State College students are at pres
ent rendering valuable service in the fighting of
forest fires, and thus they too are demonstrating
that students may be of actual use to humanity
before their graduation.
"College-bred" is not necessarily "a four year
loaf," as a rather poor joker has suggested. New
fields of usefulness are continually being found for
jitudents from year to year, not only in North Caro
lina but in our own state and in others as well
More and more are the European nations coming to their
Uncle Sam when they need money.
Perhaps the lure of the baseball park has something to
do with the reported intention of the Legislature to ad
journ on May 13.
Among the infallible reminders that spring is at hand
we might mention that Dexter Fellows, the Barnum's circus
press agent, is in town to-day.
The police have given early warning against bathing in
the Susquehanna without proper clothing. Evidently don't
want any more "September Morn" incidents.

British Cash Buys German Bonds
A number of prominent Englishmen,
including Sir Edward Gosehen, frorner
British ambassador to Berlin, have un
wittingly become purchasers of some
of the latest German war loan bonds.
The men in question were members of
the Berlin Golf Club, which just before
the war raised by subscription among
its members a eash fund of about |65,-
'OOO, for constructing and equipping a
splendid new course near Potsdam.
Pending the beginning of operations,
the fund was on deposit with the Dres
dener Bank of Berlin whem war was
declared. The money was sequestrated
and now has been invested by order of
its trustees in German war loan se
curities. Sir Edward Gosehen was hon
orary president of the eluib. Many of
its English members are now in the

Flour Cheap in Turkey
Flour in Turkey is at present much
cheaper than in .any of the other coun
tries of Europe. This is dde mainly
to the large stores of grain wisely ac
cumulated in the government stores.
Turkey's last harvest was estimated
as worth $250,000,000, of which the
government is said to have obtained
four-fifths. It is reported that there
are heavy losses to the government
supplies from rotting, but there ap
pears to be no reason to expect that
the stock on hand will not last until
the next harvest. The next harvest,
however, will be a small one, owing to
scanty sowings, and many experts
prophecy that the result will certainly
be a general famine .in Turkey next

are entertained that better conditions
wiH soon be realized. More than sixty
vessels are in port 'at this writing
awaiting discharging berths and the

largely owing to inadequate transport
facilities. This congestion and delay
has had the result of making shippers
avoid Liverpool if possible. Egyptian
cotton for American spinners was
