President Wilson’s note to neutrals registering his belief that the cause of civilization would be furthered by their taking action similar to his, and inviting them to do so. Engine-rooms of German ships interned in Manila wrecked by their crews; 17 German merchantmen taken over by American naval authorities. German counter-attacks at Beaucourt driven off; ground won by British north-east of Gueudecourt. Senussi defeated near the Siwa oasis.
