BLAME UNITED STATES
FOR COSTARICA S WAR
Zeitung Says Country Will
Have to Account to Ger
many For Damages
Amsterdam, June 14. The United
States is blamed for Costa Rica's dec
laration of war against eGrmany by
the Koelnische Volks Zeitung, which
"President Wilson will find that at
the final settlement the votes will not
be counted but weighed, and Costa
Rica wll have to account to us for all
material damages, even when full al
lowance Is made for its dependence
on the United States.
"With some more backbone Costa
Rica could have resisted America's
brutal pressure, as San Salvador has
done up to this time, although San
Salva4or is only one-third of Costa
The Costa Rlcan congress declared
war on Germany on May 25, 1918. The
present Costa Rican government,
headed by President Tinoco, has never
been given official recognition by the
American government despite at
tempts to gain such recognition.
TO PUT VOLUNTEERS
ON GOOD SALARIES
Washington, June 14 A survey has
been undertaken by the government
looking to putting its dollar-a-year
volunteers on substantial salaries.
These men heretofore have accepted
nominal compensation under a law
forbidding the government to accept
services without pay.
Information on the several hundred
of these men now serving in the war
industries board and other war agen
cies, including their duties, connec
tions with private interests and the
value of their services has been gath
ered by the house ways and means
committee in response to urgent re
quests of a number of government offi
cials that the nominal pay system be
abolished in the intreests of efficiency
and of promoting direct responsibility
to the government.
Reports of department heads show,
it is said, that most dollar-a-year vol
uikteers heretofore hav ebeen paid
much higher aslaries than the gov
ernment could affard to give.
Bureau Men Exempt.
Washington, June 14 . Orders
against the induction into military
service of draft eligibles for duty with
general staff bureaus were issued by
the war department today. The or
der excepts only men who are "tech
nically qualified for such duty, physi
cally disqualified for general military
service and physically qualified for
special and limited military service."

Rome June 14 AustroHungarian
forces yesterday launched an attack
against the Italian lines on Cady Sum

ian war office announced today. The
attack was broken by the Italians.

American Headquarters on the Brit
ish Front, Wednesday, June 12. Field
Marshal Sir Douglas Halg, commander-in-chief
of the British army in
France, today reviewed the American
troops on a wide plain in this area.
The Americans filed past with an
easy swinging step that bore out the
opinion of many British experts that
they are as fit physically as training
can make them. Their alignment, step
and carriage were excellent.
The review opened impressively
with a salute to the colors, while a
squadron from the Royal Flying Corps
flew over the field and did some acro
batic stunts. Field Marshal Haig
stopped several ' times to chat with
British officers present were im
pressed by the physical condition of
the men and by their high spirits. The
medical officers have had little to do
thus far in this zone. The health of
the men, whether quartered in billets
or camping in the open, has been far
above the average.
The eagerness of the Americans in
getting at their work has made a hit
with the British, who find them quite
ready as far as physical training yoes.
British officers believe that a short
period of study of the fine points, of
modern warfare will make the Ameri
cans ready in every respect.
