Also in today’s paper
- An article on page 7 laments the demise of the fish ordinaries
- Germany gets a taste of its own medicine with a Russian submarine attack on one of its warships, in a “thrilling story” found on page 8 - Russia claims it has inflicted “severe defeats” upon the Germans and Austrians – page 9. Germany admits it has evacuated a village, which is rather less than the “sharp set-back” the headline given to it suggests - The enrolment of munition workers is “proceeding quite satisfactorily” in the London area says an article on page 9 - Socialists generate uproar by calling for peace in the Prussian Diet – page 10
