SATURDAY, APRIL (MX.) 1 COURIER NEWS A Search At The Border Will SPIES IN WAR I Glamor And Frances Slill Can Buy Secrets Of Armies nv THOMAS M. JOHNSON' NF.A .Service Military Writer The war may seem to lack thrills —out not so (lie secret war To those "in ihe know," the struggle of the spies i.s a secret service op- i.'rntion unparalleled in history. Once the sport ol filnss, today war is the sport, of sorcerers, who play for power and glory—and sometimes existence — with loaded dice. Not only are stakes big. bill players are legion. Spies are being turned out with mass production methods.. Tlie British launch a spy hunt among hundreds of thousand- of refugees nnd sailors, includlii" :i(i,OOU German women, some of whom are said to have married Englishmen with double motives Always big numbers! In 1918, there was only one secret radio station on the Western — French — behind the , German lines. In the modern war I the British have detected a dozen German ones all over the British empire — South Africa, Australia, New Zealand. Of a score imprisoned, ihe key man was a former operator on Count von Luckner's famous yacht, "Sea Devil." All the stations were along her course. Today, the .whole of the British Isles is covered by an organization of radio engineers listening for spy broadcasts; nnd sometimes hearing German announcers describe for the British public dc- tnlls of Iheir supposedly secret defenses.

There is chain-spying on French Maginol Line, >where two spies a week are caught. And the French spy on the Westwall. The ax of the swallow-tailed Nazi executioner cuts off many heads — some with long, fine hair. "There are no more women spies," said a French medical journal, "The Nazis have enslaved men drug fiends; but for women, Frenchmen today arc too sophisticated." Whereupon t a e Deuxieme Bureau uncovered two glamor girts. The blond Baroness Von fiinem was a close relative of that General Von Einem whom the. A E F. helped defeat'- in • the champagne. On that stricken field he vowed vrmgeahce. "Voii must vindicate the family honor," he exhorted the baroness. She became a spy in Paris, and soon the lives of four Frenchmen I hung- by strands of her blond hair Because of her beauty—and francs - -these government employes supplied her with defense documents They were caught, but caped to Switzerland. llatitist Circles Meet Seventy-one members of the Baptist W.M.U. met in the Sour circle meetings in the homes of Mrs. Hale Jackson, Mrs p 13 Tompkins, Mrs. Lon/o Ilowton, and Mrs. C.
