Sub Sinks U.S. Ship; Crew Saved
Washington, Nov. 24.-The American steamer Schuylkill has been
torpedoed and sunk in the Mediterranean. The navy department was
advised today that 40 men of her crew had been landed at a Mediter-
ranean port. There was no naval armed guard aboard. Whether there
was loss of life was not known here but it was assumed that the 40
men rescued comprised the Schuylkill's complete complement.

Report That Shipments Are
Expected To Arrive

Complaints of overcharging by the
taxicab companies of Ann Arbor have
been reported in large numbers to the
police department, according to Sergt.
T. O'Brien.
Taxis Charging 85 Cents per Person
Copies of the present ordinance stat-
ing the exact fares that drivers may
lawfully charge have been placed in
all the taxis for patrons' benefit. Ac-
cording to the police, the companies7
are charging 35 cents for a passenger.
All those reporting that they have
been overcharged by the local com-
panies are advised to take their cases
to court. No cases have been brought
to police justices for adjustment.
Companies Raise Rates
The taxi companies asked for an in-
crease in rates several weeks -ago and
when the students of the University
began agitation against the raise, the
taxi men declared that they would
raise their rates wihtout waiting for
the drafting of a new ordinance or the
amending of the old.
The ordinance committee of the city
council is preparing a new ordinance
regulating carriers in the city, and the
matter will be. considered in several
readings at regular council sessions.
Three of Ambassador's Chief Aides to
Resign; Will Seek Service in
United States
Washington, Nov. 24.-The Russian
ambassador to the United States today
formally repudiated the Bosheviki
government in Petrograd and an-
nounced that he would recognize no
control that seeks to break with the
Entente and make peace with Ger-
At the same time it was announced
that three of the ambassador's chief
aides had resigned to avoid having
further relations with the Bolsheviki
and similar action would be taken by
the leading navy and military mem-
bers of the Russian mission who came
to this country with the embassy.
All of those leaving the embassy,
with possibly one or two exceptions
it was announced, would seek service
with the United States in the war
against Germany.'
The ambassador's repudiation of the
Bolsheviki's government was made
known in a formal communication to
Secretary Lansing. It is regarded
here as likely to force an early decis-
ion from the American government as
to its attitude toward the Bolsheviki
if that element continues in power.

London, Nov. 24. (Official state-

neighborhood of Bourlon wood. The

slightly, but later in the day the line
was reestablished and the high ground
(By Associated Press)
Hard fighting continued in the bat-
tle of Cambrai Saturday with the'
British moving aggressively north-
ward on the Fontaine-Queant line,{
west of Cambra.. Unofficial reports
late in the day indicated the proba-
bility that general Byng's troops have
possession of the hotly disputed Bour-
Ion wood from the Germans and had
recaptured the town of Moeuvres.
Germans Plan Retreat
The village of Fontaine, less than
three miles from Cambral, was re-
ported in flame, suggesting the prob-
ability of an impending German re-
tirement from that place. The Ger-
mans are resisting desperately the
British advance.
The Italians have now completed
successfully two weeks' defense of
their Piave line and the northern
front protecting this flank. Although1
they have had to yield ground during1
this time on the front between the
upper Piave and the Asago plateau,
their defensive line remains unbroken.
British Close On Jerusalem
In Palestine the British are closing
in on Jerusalem. Their official -state-
ments claim added interest because of
their increasingly frequent mention of
biblical names. The-site of the ancient
Mizpah, some eight miles west of Je-
rusalem, was carried by storm. North-
west of the city, the British were still
closer, but their mounted troops were
forced back a short distance by a
strong Turkish counter attack.
