MORAHT AGAINST GERMAN DRIVE ON RUSSIA NOW Berlin, March 27 (via London, March 28)-The idea of a great offensive. against Russia in order to take advantage of her supposed demoralization is not regarded with favor by Major Moraht, the widely known military expert of the Tageblatt: Major Moraht writes: "The foreground of interest still lies in the situation on the western front. From a purely military standpoint, I must say that for the time being no change need be expected. Political consideration, which our military authorities must take into account, will probably not be influenced events in Russia.

This must be emphasized, because many politicians already see the sun of peace rising in the East, and peace at that which we are to win through operations of force. "I would consider it wiser to give the conflict between the Russian army and the provisional government more chance to develop. This weakening of our enemy can continue without our help and yet without precluding our attack at the moment when an inclination is shown to give up resistance." AUSTRALIA MAY AGAIN VOTE ON CONSCRIPTION Ottawa, March 28-Announcement by Premier Hughes of Australia that the question of compulsory military service might be submitted to the electorate was greeted by prolonged cheering at a large meeting he addressed yesterday in Bendigo, according to a dispatch received here from Melbourne by Reuter's Ottawa agency. Mr. Hughes appealed, the dispatch says, for whole-hearted co-operation in the war by Australia with money, men, supplies and production, urging organized efforts to increase the food output for the Empire.

He denounced the methods of the Labor party caucus, declaring that all loyal Australians felt humiliated because the Laborites in the Senate had prevented Australian representation at the Imperial Conference in London. To refute false statements made, he said, in regard to the soldier vote on the conscription referendum, Mr. Hughes announced the correct figures as 72,000 for and 58,000 against.

Fairchild Sons FUNERAL DIRECTORS 86 LEFFERTS PLACE MANUAL TRAINING JOINS EAGLE BEE Nine Brooklyn Schools Now Enrolled for Current Events Contest April 27. EDUCATORS BACK PROJECT. High School Students Have Chance to Do Better Than University of Chicago. of the nine Brooklyn high schools--the Poly Prep and the preparatory school of St. Francis College, as well as Newtown High School of Queens Borough, have announced that they will participate in the Brooklyn Eagle Current Events Bee, which is to be held at the Girls High School on April 27.

The Manual Training High School is the last school to come into the contest. Every educator recognizes the cultural value of such a contest, although in all the high schools current events form an important part of the work in history. Eagle is convinced that in no Brooklyn or Queens secondary school would the students, without preparation, be found to be so ill-informed as some of the students at the University of Chicago, who were quizzed a few days ago on "past and current topics." It is said that 50 per cent. of the questions in 'the quiz were answered correctly, but here are some of the questions and the answers: Q. Who was Disraeli? A.

An Irish patriot. Q. Who is Gerard? A. (1) A German statesman. (2) Name of a cigar.

(3) An English statesman very in the present war. (4) The arctive "Cloister in the Hearts." Q. Who is Lloyd -George? A. King of England. Q.

Who is Zimmermann? (1) A ballplayer. (2) A prize fighter. (3) A restaurant keeper on Dearborn street. Who is Joffre. A.

A prominent Russian soldier. Q. What is referred to in the quotation: "A Niobe of nations, there she stand." About three-fourths answered: "The Statue of Liberty." Q. Who is the "Wizard of Menio Park?" Alas for Thomas Edison's name! not one correct answer. Q.

What was the Alhambra? A. A theater in London. ATTACKED BY U-BOAT The British steamship Ruahine, from a port of Europe, was attacked by a submarine on March 17, when a torpedo missed her stern by about twenty feet, her officers reported when the the ship Atlantic finished her voyage across today.

The woodwork was all of thinly shellaced Canadian fir, which looks like our white pine. There was little suggestion of the sea about the cabin. n. lt was more like a tiny room in a temporary mountain hotel. Bright oilcloth covered the sloping floor.

An iron pot stove, not a ship stove but a "house" stove, stood in the middle of a square of zine, a and a "house" stove pipe curled toward a hole in the ceiling. The lamp hanging over the table was a "house" lamp. A tin alarm clock ticked on a tiny shelf. In the sleeping quarters stood single beds with casters on; beds made for landlubbers to sleep in. The doors had come from a factory and had been made for houses.

In the hurry of getting the Letitia T. Mackay off on her maiden voyage her owners had had no time to hunt for regular ship hardware and woodwork. They bought what could be delivered quickest and sent her to sea. "Schooners are the cheapest and quickest to build. I guess nobody is building any other kind of wooden ships," commented Skipper Butler.

Inquiry proved that Captain Butler was right. In the Navigation Bureau's summary of wooden shipbuilding not one square-rigged ship was listed. When builders stopped making oceangoing vessels of wood more than twenty years a ago they had been turning out barks and barkentines, ships with one or two masts rigged with little square sails and the mainmast rigged with one big mainsail slung out on a spar and a boom. Old shipping men say that at the same time ocean builders stopped building square-rigged vessels the men on the Great Lakes stopped building schoonShips of iron and steel were 80 artich bigger and faster that no one wanted to send freight in a little slow "wind-jammer" any more. The tables are turned now.

Steel mills are behind in orders for ship plates. The shipyards cannot get enough men to speed work on what steel they can get. Every shipyard is full of orders that will require several years to complete. All the floatable wooden ships in the world have been fitted up and still there is a tonnage famine. Practically every one of the left-over schooners from the old Great Lakes fleet has been sent to the seaboard, and now new schooners are being hurriedly rushed together.

Many of the bigger ones are for transoceanic trade, but the majority are to supply the famine in coasting tonnage. Until the war is over and the millions of tons of requisitioned ships are released for merchant service, and until the ships sunk by the U-boats have been replaced by new ones, the schooners will be fortunemakers for their owners. When peace brings quiet to the water front again the schooners will be consigned to the limbo of old-ship graveyards, where long since the fleets of Baltimore clippers and barks have rotted away. There they will wait for whichever comes first, another war or "the conqueror But now they are in their herday." DR. WILLIAMS FACES FIGHT FOR DEPUTY HEALTH OFFICIAL Office Is Under Civil Service Rules, but Dr.

Emerson Appointed Him. HEARING NEXT WEDNESDAY. Rumor That There Will Be a Warm Fight Before Dr. Williams Is Confirmed. Dr.

Linsly R. Williams of 884 Park avenue, Manhattan, recommended for appointment as Deputy Health Commissioner by Dr. Haven Emerson and the Board of Health, will face a fight in the Municipal Civil Service Commission, it is understood, before he wins the $6,000 post. The place, which is really that of Sanitary Superintendent, is under civil service rules and Dr. Williams cannot named unless the Commission concurs be, in the son recommendation.

According to civil service regulations, a public hearing must be held before Dr. Williams gets the Deputy Commissionership. This is because his designation is asked under a rule of the Commission which permits appointment without examination on the ground of the "special fitness" of the candidate. It was said today at the office of the commission that the hearing in the Williams case would come up in the ordinary course next Wednesday. The recommendation asking the commission's approval did not reach its office in time for action today.

Civil Service Commissioner Darwin R. James said that he had heard of no opposition to Dr. Williams, either in the commission or out of it, but said that it might exist without his knowing of it because the nomination of the doctor had come in only this morning. Pom If there was opposition, said Commissioner James, full opportunity for hearing it would be given next Wednesday. In other quarters the rumor was persistent that there would be a warm fight in the commission before Dr.

Williams' name went through, and it was said to be even possible civil service approval might be indefinitely held up. If Dr. Williams' name is blocked there will be another opportunity for Brooklynites to urge the appointment of a Brooklyn physician. BLAME PALL FOR ACCIDENT. Doctor Says He Ran Auto in Front of Ambulance.

On complaint of Dr. Wallace Dukeshire, ambulance surgeon of the Norwegian Hospital, George F. Pall, 29, an upholsterer, living at 3910 Fifth avenue, was arraigned before Magistrate Voorhees in the Fifth avenue police court today, on a charge of reckless driving. The appearance of Pall followed a crossing accident at Seventeenth street and Sixth avenue, when the automobile ambulance, in which the doctor riding, ran on the sidewalk and crashed into a plate glass. Dr Dukeshire's hand was painfully cut.

The doctor blamed Pall for the accident, saying he drove his automobile through Fifth avenue and paid no heed to the ambulance bell, while the hospital vehicle was going through Seventeenth street, and approaching the crossing.
