It was here that the famous "women's pt-ace'" was sign ed, in 1S29, between Margaret of Aus tria, Louise of Sri voy, the aunt Of Charles V, and the woman regent of the Netherlands. In 1308 a treaty was signed in Cam brai between Maximilian and Charles of Spain, on the one .side, and Louis XTI and Egmont on the other. 6lx year.-* later an alliance was formed In Cambrai against the Turks, and the borders of France were fixed. Pope Julius II formed in Cambrai a league against Venice. Later a quadruple alliance was formed against Spain. Thus Cambrai was for centuries a favorite pawn between Kuropean rul ers and diplomats. In the present war battle-storms swept around the city In the first battle of the Marne. Then It en - Joyed comparative quiet until Sir Ju lian Byng. in October of last year, launched his terrific surprise attack ln which tanks were used for the first time. The British then advanced to the very gates of Cambrai, but were forced baek shortly afterwards It was in the Cambrai region that American engineers attached to the British army won fame by dropping their picks and shovels and helping stem the German advance that fol lowed Byng's assault. Before the war Cambrai had a pop ulation of about 2S.00O. It was a prosperous city, its chief Industry being the minufacture of linen.

The Czecho-Slovaks have render ed such magnificent service to the Cause of the allies in Russia and Siberia that the attention of the entire civilized world haa been turned upon them. But their achievements have not all been on the field of battle. There are in America more than ?,???.000 Czecho slovaks. The story of their contri butions to the winning of the war Is also one of Croat' Interest. Since we entered the war, the efforts of the Csecho-Slovak people in the United States have been really notably both as American-*, to win the war, and as lovers of their native land, to secure Its in dependence. But their dlstruct of Germany and their industry in be half of apprised peopl?-s iate bark earlier than America's par ticipation in the struggle. Msfteffiy Association? loniftl. Associations of various kinds, no rial, athletic, benefit, etc.. had ex isted among the Czecho-Slovaks be fore the great war began in 1914. But In that year all th? Czech or ganizations were united into the Bohemian Natiortal Alliance with headquarters at Chicago, and all the Slovak organizations were combined to form the Slovak League which had Its main office?*, at Pittsburgh. The object was twofold, first, to v.ork with all thetr might and main for the independence of Bohemia Slovakia; aecond. to counteract the pro-German propaganda In tbe United States. The pro-German agitation tried Its best to make use of the Czecho slovaks: particularly their news papers. Everybody remembers the vigorous efforts of German agents to find expression through the American press. Attempts w-**re made to buy up papers or to secure their favor with advertisements. This extended also to the Bohemian Slovak newspapers. But against all the measures taken to win them over the Czecho-Slovaks presented a detenu in ed front. ThMr eighty newspapers throughout the country' refused the paid matter with which they were deluged by the Austro Hungarian Embassy and rame out practically unanimously for the cause of the allies, Cseeho-Slovaks I? Army. But they were not satisfied to give only their means. As soon as the United State? declared war, a recruiting campaign was under taken to enlist as many of their men as possible in our army.
