WAR SCENES IN "OVER THERE"
"Over There." is notable for its
wsr scenes, which must rank with the
very beat war scenes produced out
side of the actual fighting lines. The
battle area in thia picture are unu
sually extensive, and th construction
of the trench system waa coatly. For,
instead of the usual few yards of
trenches and sandbags, hundreds of
feet are covered by a really ramify
ing system of counter trench work.
These trenches were constructed
under the supervision of Lieutenant
W. A. O'Hara, of the 24th Battalion,
Canadian Eapeditionary Force, who
spent seven month in th first line
trenches in Northern France, and who
actively participated in tha battles
of th Somme from Ypre to Vimy.
Lieutenant O'Hara also supervised
and ably assisted in the making of
the highly effective battle scenes.
No picture which has yet been shown
to the American public so graphically
duplicates the scenic conditions of a
battle on th west front as do these
battle scenes In "Over There,"

THE THIRD LIBERTY LOAN COMMITTEE for 26 County Precincts has been resolved into PERMANENT
WAR WORK COMMITTEE and the same members will co ordinate with the Ladies' Auxilliary Red '
Cross Committee, and we, the Chairman and members, hereby pledge "to go over the top" with raising one- -half
of the $25,000.00.
County Campaign to be Made Saturday and Monday, 25-27.
That in raising the first Red
Cross fund neither the city, nor
county made any response. Now,
therefore, in order that the city and
county may not be classed as slack
ers, we propose that the 26 pre
cincts will raise $13,000.00 if the
city of Hopkinsville will raise
The amount that each pre
cinct is supposed to give is 5 per
cent, of the amount of Bonds sold
by that precinct in last drive.
