Homework Help: history

Posted by history on Tuesday, April 14, 2009 at 5:56pm.

in my book, it shows a 1915 american newspaper clipping and i have to answer questions...this is what the clipping looks like. on the right side it says:
NOTICE!
TRAVELLERS intending to embark on the Atlantic voyage are reminded that a Britian, that a state of war exists between Germany and her allies and Great Britian and her allies; that the zone of war includes the waters adjacent to the British Isles; that in accordance with formal notice given by the Imperial German Government vessels flying the flag of Great Britian, or of any of her allies, are liable to destruction in those waters and that travellers sailing in the war zone on ships of Great Britian or her allies do so at their own risk.
IMPERIAL GERMAN EMBASSY
WASHINGTON, D.C., APRIL 22, 1915

and on the right side it says:
CUNARD
