ves German Shell-fire to
?"i Rescue Wounded
t-ondon. Nov. I. ? Thia la th? ta.l? of
how Rev. Theodore Bailey Hardy, one*
a schoplmaster, and lately vicar of the
coudtry parish of Hutton Roof in
the county of Westmorland, won the
Victoria Cross. He was more than
iO years of age Neverthelss, when
the call came, he stepped down from
kla pulpit, and went out to minister
to a greater need in France.
tiere is the story in the words of
a Tergeant:
The Germans had been bombing
us badly, and we had four wounded.
We were obliged to witl!4rew some
distance, but one of the men was
?o badly hurt that we had to leave
him behind. He was lying about 10
yifd.t on our side of a pill-box
which we had taken in the morn
ing. but which was now once more
occupied by the enemy. Shortly
after noon the padre came along,
and asked me if I thought we could
get the wounded men back. I told
him that 1 thought we could; at
all events we would try. So we
went out to the spot where the
man lay. He was too weak to stand
up. but the padre gave him a drink
of brandy, and this revived him a
little, so that between us we were
able to drag him to the trench
where our men were. We had sev
eral tries before we could get him
t4ear of the wood, as every 15
ybrds or so we had to rest him. he
was so exhausted, and it was diffi
cult to move him. his arm was so
bad. I left him with the padre,
and went back to my men in front.

"Later we were ordered to with
draw and when we came to our own
k trench the padre was still sitting
? with the wounded man. though
r trench mortars were shelling the
A little after 6 o'clock the padre
returned to the regimental aid post,
a mile behind Rassignol Wood, and
asked for volunteers to bring the
man back. There were "four stretch
er-bearers at the aid poet, and they
had been at work all day and were
very tired. Their relief had arrived,
but they volunteered as one man. As
one of them put it. "We were glad
to go, because the padre asked us."
So the Ave of them went up to Ros
signoi Wood. Tfey had work enough
to reach the wood, but it was harder
to come hack, with that helpless bur
den on the stretcher, along a trench
that was often waist-deep In mud
and water. Three hours had passed,
three anxious weary howrH before
their task was over.

This increase Is a r^l gain. It was

The sale of 2-cent stamps is as

of 1-cent stamps has also remained

accounted for as due to war condi

Will Use Federal Reserve
Banks for Future
An entirely new plaft of organisa
tion for handling not only future gov
ernment bond issues, but war savings
stamps and all government issues for
popular subscription is under con
sideration by the Treasury Depart
ment as the result of a two-day ses
sion of governors of the Federal Re
serve Hanks, chairmen of liberty loan
committees and representatives of the
women's liberty loan committee.
While the detail* of the plan have
not been Anally determined. It was!
learned -from authoritative sources j
yesterday after the adjournment of
the conference that a practical agree
ment was reached by all represented
and tjie plan in general contemplates
twelve unified organisations With the j
governors of the twelve Federal Re- (
serve Banks at their heads, these or- |
ganlzatlons reporting through the gov- I
ernors to the Treasury at Wsshing- ?
<;overnars to be ResponaiMi'.
Each governor, according to the'
present plan, is to be responsible for
the form and results of the organi
zation In his district. This would ob
viate, it is pointed out, the necessity j
of various Ft&te, women'? and other j
ndependent organisations each report- j
ing to Washington.
A definite form of organisation i
under each bank governor, one
which he must follow, is not con
templated. but he is eapected to b**
the responsible head of whatever!
form of organization he may choose'
to form in his district.
Another feature of the ptan. it i
was learned, is to make a continu- 1
ous selling organization throughout!
the country. The twelve district
committees, or whatever their name,
shall be. are to be assigned quotas'
of war savings certificates and other!
government issues, to cover periods
of three of Bit ihohths. If at the
approach of the end of any period
it shall appear that the District is
ftlllhg behind ifa Its quota, special
drives are to be organised but the
Idea is to keep the government is
sues confltantiy before the public
and avoid as far as possible periodic
Women ntsafr?r?ve Plans*
Some discontent With this plan was
expressed by methbers of the Wo
men's National liberty Ix>an Com
mittee, It was learned, and an at- j
tempt whs .made by them to specify j
that upon each district organisation
a definite office should be assigned U>
some woman. This was regarded as
Impractical, however, and it is under
stood that the women acquiesced 'n
the general plan With the understand
ing that their previous valuable pet-V
ices were to be recognised and that
appropriate places in the new organ
'eations should be assigned to women
Wherever practicable.
An official announcement of the
new plah as soon as it has beer re
viewed carefully by Treasury officials i
is expected.
Air Flight Acrou Ocean Soon.
A French magazine, Les Iiectures j
pour toup. prediets the early crossing |
of the Atlantic by airplane.
Three routes are suggested.
The first is between St. John's, i
Newfoundland, and Cork, Ireland, a
distance of 1725 miles, to be made in;
eighteen hours, non-stop flight.
The second route, an estimated j
twenty-ohe-hour flight of 20P0 miles,!
would connect Bt. John's with L?is-!
bon. Portugal, with a stop at the'
Asore Islands.
A third route has also been sug
gested. a fifteen-hour non-stop flight
between Pernambuco. Brazil. and'
Freetown, Sierra Leone, connecting
South America and Africa.
Austrian Airmen Seldom Fly.
Iiondon?A recently captured Aus- ;
trian airman told the Italian examin- [
ers that no Austrian aviator is per- j
mitted to make any war flight with
out the specific consent of the army:
operations branch. He said that in.
six months at the front he had flown
over the lines only five times. Fear j
of loping machines is responsible for
the order requiting application to the i
"koluft" before making a flight.
