Xew York, Nov. 15. Edward X.
Hurley, chairman of the- United
States shipping board, announced
here tonight on the eve of his de
parture for Europe that the govern
ment intends to return to this coun
try spt-edily a large part of the
American expeditionary forces. The
purpoi-c of Mr. Hurley's trip to
Europe is to arrantre the details for
To offset the loss of transport ton
nasre through the withdrawal of
Rritish ships hitherto engaged in
carrying American soldiers overseas.
j Mr. Hurley hopes to utilize t wenty-
five or thirtv 0 rnian and Austrian
liners, with accommodations for 4,
000 men each. In compensation for
the "loan" of these vessels, he said,
food would be sent to the people of
central Europe on their return voy
ages. Mr. Hurley said the shipping
board would be able to bring troops
back at the rate of .100.000 a month,
":f the war department wants them
returned as fast as that."
Would Meet Pershing:.
He would meet General Pershing
at American field headquarters, he
added, to discuss the details of their
Convalescent wounded, including
many men who would have returned
to the battle front had the war con
tinued, would be the first troops

They would be followed by units

ents. Baker Has Made No Plans.
Washington, D. C, Nov. 15. The
war department has made no defin
ite plans for the reiurn of the
American expeditionary forces to the
United States, it was learned to
night and it is not regarded as likely
that the movement, except of sick
and wounded, will start soon.
Asked specifically if any of the
men could be expected home by
Christmas, Secretary Raker said he
did not know.
General Pershing has been con
sidering the question of getting the
army back home, but many factors
in his plans have not yet been dis
cussed. Among these is the question of
what proportion of the guard duty
in Europe, the American forces will
assume. Presumably the supreme
war council, through its military
advisers at Versailles, is working
out this question.
Miss Aleen Franzen. who has
been visiting in thi.s city a guest
