America's War Secrets Must I5e
Guarded With Greater Care
Than Ever Now.
I By United Press.1
WASHINGTON, Aug. 20.—Warn-
ing that German U-boats may be
landing agents on our shores, was
made today by officials here.
Crews from U-boats are believed to
have visited New York, Philadelphia
and even Washington wtih their ears
attuned to any bit of information
that would be useful in Germany.
The extreme length of the Amer-
ican coastline makes it almost im-
possible to prevent landings at night
from the collapsible boats carried by
submersibles. It would be possible
for enemy agents to move about for
days and be picked up again at some
deserted point by a prearranged plan.
Necessity therefore for careful
guarding of America's war secrets 13
even greater now, officials say.
With Special Program
A program of selected readings and
music numbers was given in the ^ . M.

This program was arranged by Sin-
clair Moreland, the new Y. M. C. A
secretary for the soldiers. He wil
have a similar program for this even

of ntertainment given for the boys
