In the midst of this experience we are asked not
to trust it but to trust the delusion which it causes

the army, are violating Sections 1763 and 1764 of

The national guard is not to be mobilized now
nor in the near future, states General' Wisser. But
there is no reason why the guardsmen should not

individuals. In

at court-martial because of "theise of intoxicants,
"I'he boys in khaki in Oaliu ought to consider
this statement in the knowledge they n'aVe of what
a term at Alcatraz means while it is bcing served
and then during all the rest of the life of the sol
dier who has misstepped. '' Every other jyian who

! Remember this the next time some enemy of
America and some enemy of the individual soldier
sidles up to jou on the street and whispers the
information regarding an available blind ig. He
is not doing you any favor. He wants the money
in your pocket and chares not a particle whether
the errand he starts you on leads you to Alcatraz
The true soldier, the .patriotic man in uniform,
the real American, will hand the blind pig runners
over to the federal authorities and will give the
officials every assistance in his' power in running
to earth these pro-German perverters of the men
in khaki. No soldier need feel any compunctions
in turning informer against the iillicit dealers in
intoxicants, any more than he would be ashamed
to help cause the arrest pfany other traitor to the
Flag. , In helping run out'the blind piggers he is
not only carrying out the expressed wishes of the
President, but he is saving some of his comrades
from disgrace and a term in the federal prison.
America's First Share
AMERICA'S real part in the war' this winter
must be through the Red Cross, according to
William lAHen . White, the novelist, who has just
returned, frOni France.
' In a letter received at the northern division Red
Cross headquarters Mr. White says:
. It l not probable that our army in France will get )
into the fighting to any large extent until next opring.
The real war work that should interest the people
of America this winter i of aa economic rather than
of a military character. It will be curried oa by the
Kxl Cross in France, ite purpose being to relieve needy
conditions in the home of French soldiers who are ia
, winter quarters in the trenches at the front , '
It ia felt by the military officers of both natioaa that '
nothing could do more to keep up the morale of the
French soldiers during the coming winter than to bring
, e.omfort to womea and children at home. The soldier's
; knowledge that his family is being well cared for will
' tske a great load off his mind, and hearten Aim to
stand ap against privation which otherwise- might
break his spirit and render hint of no physical use.
Maj. Grayson M. P. Murphy of the Bed Cross, Gen.
J. J. Pershing, and General Petain of France are work-;
ing in unison to perfect the plana for the relief of fam-j
ilies of soldiers, the military commanders believing
that it will be the greatest - benefit- to both-armies.
Frunch soldiers will be saved for work ia the spring
and American lives will be conserved at the tame time..:
General Petain it having French officer go right "
down the lines ad ascertain from 'every soldier
whether he has any. worries on his mind concerning sick
ness or want at home. Report will be made to headquar
ters weekly and aot a single ease will be overlooked in
the immense undertaking. Special attention' will be given
to the treatment and prevention of tuberculosis, and
child welfare work also will be aa accompaniment of
the general relief. -
Scattered through France, many of them la soldiers',
homes, are tome 200,000 refugee! from the war tone,
and these also will receive attention. In short it it
the purpose to keep the spirit of France bright until -the
military forces are ready to deal their smashing
blow against German autocracy. Thus it it I say jtbat
the great struggle of the. wiuter will be the economic,
struggle. The Bed Crowt ractically will fight, the.
American fight until our bora take their places on the
firing llnejiext spring. '
According to apparently authenticated report, 'J.
F. C. Hagens, vice-president and manager of
Hackfeld & Co., has resigned from that firm in
view of the plea, of guilty entered by Georg Ro
diek'to the charge of violation of neutrality and
the substantiation xf his guilt afforded by the
Grasshof diary. Mr. Hagens holds a commission
in the reserve officers' corps of the United States
Army, under which commission he hopes to serve
his adopted country, -and his- resignation from
Hackfeld & Co. now clears the way for any call
that may be made upon him for active service.
From time to time there have been doubts ex
pressed as to the bona fide nature of Mr. Hagens'
In view of his latest action and of
the meanwhile, get ready.

are to be aligned to the Pacific, how

As a result, of the embargo ou exports
the' vessels are prevented from carry
ing on their usual trade between the
t'nited Btates and Holland. Exports to
Holland have also been reduced, and
the supplying of thst 'country depends
greatly upoa the success of the negotia

As Germany would object to the' nsd
of the. vessels for carrying supplies to
the' Allies, fend at Holland would ob
