UNIONTOWN, March G.-- Police are puKzIed o-\er the extensive raid made early today on the JLaKayette Junior High School in Connellsville street and a few are inclined to believe that the acts may have been thqse of Communists The damage to the interior of the building was so great It was impossible to hold a session of school this morning. ^ Classes may be resumed this afternoon. A dozen doors were either ripped from the hinges or smashed. The school cafeteria was looted and food scattered about on the floor. Everything in the room had been rifled. Peaches and cream had been taken from the K;O boxes and placed on the counter. Probably some had been eaten. Virtually every classroom In the entire building was damaged and tho interior of the, office wrecked. In this room papers were scattered about on the floor and the small office safe had been damaged by the intruders who made a futile attempt to open It. They had evidently used an iron bar and penknives in an effort to force it. The safe contained only cafeteria checks and papers of value only to the .school officials. The mission seemed to be one ot destruction rather t h a n robbery, lin- trauce was gained through a rear door, Bcroened from \ision from the ii-treet. School officials say any ot the inside doors could have been opened without damage. Officials are attteinpting to Ket fingerprints, .said to have b»eti left on variou-i objects. Notwithstanding the noise which no doubt attended the, destruction ot the interior, persons living nearby said they had heard nothing. I t is believed ( h o plant was entered u a r l y this morning.

Poplar Grove Mine Fire Not Subsided; Signs in New Areas Evidences have become visible t h a t the mine fire under the Mount Pleas- ant-Ojnnellville roatt between the city limits and Poplar Grov. has not subsided. Instead its area has been gradually enlarged as shown by the smoke now issuing from ere\icos west of the highway near the termination ot the trench, excavated by a steam shovel several years ngo. At a point nearer the city lino and opposite the Buttermore switch of the West Penn tracks at a po.nt about three feet inside the fence , ml about 10 feet from the public read, a V- shaped opening has developed, indicating: the substance of. the underlying strata. The opening is about two inches in wid-th, but'.no sm-)ke is issuing from it at this time. Recently employes from tno Davidson mine of the 1-1. C. I'Vck Coke Company have been engager In filling openings with earth and t imping it securely so as to exclude alt from the fire and aiding In supporting combustion. The recent discoveries convince many persona that the coal now supporting the roadbed will sooner OT later be burned outconiplet-ly, as has already taken place along the outcrop at the base ot the h i l l neir Poplar Grove, and another section ot the road may cave In. This condition calls atteniion to the very urgent necessity for prompt action being taken to improve the Swaugertown roatl which ctn be used as a cut-off in case the mam roal is blocked off by the progress of the mine tire.

Tirpitz, Wh« was minister of t'le imperial German navy during the World War and wbo assumed responsibility for the German submarine warfare, is dead according to a Berlin dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph. Death occurred at 2:30 A. M. today, from iH-art failure. The admiral had been resting in a sanitarium at Eben- hanaen since th« middle of last month, after an attack of bronchitis. Although, his attack was not considered extremely dangerous, It had resnltod in a weakened heart condition. Von TirpitK would bare been SI ^e.-s old on. March 11. His death had not been, expected. To the world, the name of Von TlrpHz was associated with, snbmarinr warfare. As early as 1884, when lie was a commander in the German navy, he carno to the attention of the admiralty through a memorial to the government in which he urged the construction of 150 undersea ships. His name reappeared 12 years later, when he became Rear Admiral Von Tlrpit!!, chief of the cruiser division, and again submitted a proposal for a vast Increase in the naval strength of his country. Through influential friends he interested the kaiser In his project, and this was the beginning of an ascend- ency over naval affairs In the German Empire that led him to the highest command of the Imperial fleet. In 1897, Von. Tirpitz was appointed minister of marine, and then began the work which reached its culmination in complete reorganization of the navy and a climax in what the world later termed the "ruthleesness" of submarine warfare. Tirpitz was actually the father of the German pre-war navy, and carried measure after measure through a hostile parliament which more than doubled the strength of the fleet between the years 1901 and 1517. Much criticism within his country was levelled against Tirpitz, and he was continually the subject of bitter comment from his enemies. His friendship with the kaiser, however, stood him in good stead, and when war broke out in 191-1 he was considered one of the kaiser's closest advisers on the Gorman program for a grand offensive on sea. Disasters to some of the German high seas squadrons and the linpos- siblllty ot matching the ' ponderous fleets of the Allies forced a change in the naval campaign, however, and from the beginning of the war tin; Gsrman naval director advocated tho "ruthless submarine warfare" which was later to drag America into p a r - ticipation on the side of the Allies. The phrase "spurlcs versenckt"-- sunk without a trace--was on the lips of many a high naval officer in those days, as Illustrative of tin- thoroughness of the proposed campaign both against armed vessels and merchantmen. Admiral Von Tirpitz: made light ot America's entrance Into the war, declaring it a phantom." lie scorned the suggestion of Von rtethmann- llollweg t h a t America might prove the stumbling block to German success. Effectiveness of the German submarine campaign was soon indicated by allied shipping reports. Supplies both of war material and food, for the nations arrayed against Germany, began to dwindle and British and French statesmen made no secret ot the fact that If it continued, the populations of their countries would 5e in a critical situation.
