PLOT TO CALL STRIKES
New York, April 25. Franz vpn
Rintelen, alleged German "master
spy," and seven Americans accused
of having conspired to institute
strikes in munitions plants were
brought before the federal court to
day for trial. ,
The other defendants are David La
mar. known as "the wolf of Wall
street;" former Congrettmen H. Rob
ert Fowler and rranlc uucnanan oi
Illinois, former Attorney General
Frank S. Monnett of Ohio, Henry B.
Martin, a Washington lobbyist, and
Herman Schultcis and Jacob C. Tay
lor. They are taid to have operated
through the medium of a "labor's na
tional peace council."
Counsel for Rintelen sought delay
on the plea tht hit client will be un
able to obtain fair trial now, a the
jury will look upon him at an enemy.
Judge Cushman overruled this objec
tion, as he did also a plea by the
other defendants, that as "loyal
American citizens they should not oe
forced to ttand trial with an alien
would demoralize our army. It teemt
to me it would demortlize the irmy
of the enemy more."
Conscript, Wealth Alio.
Senator Kenyon read figures to
show enormoui increases in the in
comes of corporations affected by
the war and added:
"I want to say that while I am vot
ing for conscription of men, I am go
ing to vote later on for conscription of
the great incomes of this country. In
mv iiida-ment every income above
C100.000 should be commandeered or
conscripted for the beneht ot tne gov
ernment to carry on this war. That
proposition is going to come up be
fore we get through with the tax bill.
Senator McCumber declared that
10,000,000 best trained officers and
men would not win the war for the
United States if the submarines were
not overcome. t

Desperate Efforts Made by
Germans to Drive Britons
from Captured Posts.
TEUTON LINE IS MENACED
tDy A-wlatad Freei.)
Desperate efforts of the Germans
to drive the British from the cap
tured heights on the Arras front have
failed after four days of the bitterest
fighting that the world has seen since
the bloody days of Verdun.
Military critics expect the attacks
will be renewed if the German matt
power can ttand the awful drain, at
the retention by General Haig of the
hills crowning the plain of Douai
spells almost certain doom to the
votan line, the last protecting'bar
rier between Douai and Cambrai.
French Critic Analyze! Gains.
Paris, April 27. Under the caption,
Whv We Attacked." a writer in the
Matin points out that before the pres
ent forward movement began the
German man undoubtedly waa to es
cape from the grasp of the allies. He
'To frustrate this Man the French
and British widened the frontiOf their
attack so as to overlap the front on
which the Germans were retreating.
The result was that the enemy found
both his wmgt involved, ne decided
to fight on the first line, and the
French plan was altered to suit.
"The result of the first and tecond
days' fighting was that the German
lost fully 100,000 men, and, what was
more important, were obliged to en
gage thirty-three out of their fortv
three reserve divisions. The dearly
bought but valuable results of the
Aisne and Champagne operations
are thus: , , ,
First, the enemy was prevented
from carrying out hit own plant thus
disposing of the famous Hindenburg
scheme, which was to be followed on
the conclusion of the retreat from
Novon: second, the enemy was
obliged to order his troopi to hold
out on the lirst line, but the whole line
has been captured, a tactical success,
to which must be added heavy losses
in men, material and guns."

He gives the recipe as follows:
Four ounces rye flour, twelve ounces
whole wheat, three pounds white
flour, one quart water, oue-half ounce
yeast, one ounce salt.
Besides containing more nutriment,
