FAMILY PLEDGE MUST BE TRUE STATEMENT Family Heads Ursed to Make Accurate Reports of Family ’s Support to War Savinas Cause Wiut-cod-Salem, June 19 — State 1 Leadquarh-rs for War Savings eaiis attention to the fact that the Family War Savings piedge —that given by the head of tiie family for himself and the dependent members of his family—must be a true statement as to the number of War Savings Stamps bought by members, and particularly as to number they wiii pledge themselves to buy during the remainder of the year. The father, or housek: Ider, will he called on to make this pledge during the weekosJuue 23-28. aud he is urged to canvas the members of his family before that time to know how many stamps they own and how many they intend to purchase by December 3lst, He should know this that he may repre sent them fairly in the pledge he makes for them. As the pledge made by the head of the family will be come a recc’d of history of this great war, State Head" quarters emphasises the im portance of this pledge being an accurate representation of the family’s support to the War Savings Campaign. [1 calls attention to the fact that it becomes a permanent record i f I lie service the fam> dy renders to this call of the Government, and that after it is made nothing has the power to change it. It would warn against the ten' deucy of family heads to un derestimate the importance of this n quest in Cue Govern" tnent. a; d to pledge too little to the cause, an amount that would not be representative of the family’s ability to save and lend to the Government, nor their willingness to serve their Country at this imper ative hour. It advises that every family lake time before making the pledge to consid er, fir.-t what it owes to the soldiers now in the heat of battle lightiug and dying, and second, what would their money be worth to them if Geimauy should win the war.

Jnn- 2f> — Austria's armi-s are beyond the Piave rive: and tlie line once more bar the enemy from the Venetian plains The crushed A us triau loices net only were pursued to the river but the Ital'aus at points occupied several bridgeheads an tin east banks of the stream. flow thorough the victory has been is not yet clear, as every hour brings reports ol increasing Austrian losses. Many thousand of tin invaders were killed in thpir attempt to regiiutlie east bank of the river, aud the latest auuouhcemen: from General Don places th> number of prisoners a loin at 40,000 One report place the Austrian casualties et 20 000 men. In additiou lii enemy lost iarge stoivs ol munitions and supplies and many guns. xiyyaieuuy sudden torreut in the t’iaue, whicl played havoc with Austriai communication, fell as quick' as it rose aud the river bed was dry when the Austrian retreat began. This enkl led the enemy to get many of his troo[ s across, otherwise hie losses would have been much greater. Vienna hla;n«n thu H..... aud high water in the river for the retirement and gives no credit to the stoat Italian resistance which held the en emy on the west bank of the river and gradually forced him back to the stream. It says the order to wrh doiw was given Thursday aud leaves the impression that the retreat was carried out unobserved by the Ital aus. It has been reported that Ba ron Burian, the Austro-Hungar iarn foreign minister, told the German command that grave events, possibly a revolution, would follow in the dual mon archy i f an Austrian attack which Germany insisted upon, was repulsed. 1 here has been no reports that the disorders and unrest within the Hapsburg empire has ceased. In fact, iate news dis patches give scanty intelligence as to the state of affairs in Aus tria. Ii the Austrian offensive wns expected by the German com mand to relieve the situation on the western front the Teuton strategists have been badly dis appointed Austria probably will not be able to take up a new forward movement on the Pi.tve line for a few days at least. In fact, the Piave front appears to be stronger now than at the begin ning of the present battle. Operations on mountain front are stili at a standstill and if Emperor Charles si ill desires to push the offensive against Italy the next enemy attacks may come from this front unless the Italians continue the advance I eastward from the Piave of I which, however, there are no | indications at present.

J he a tlack was quick - press-d. and became more jsistent accompanied by vio •ut artillery fire. The earn er of gnus left behind by be Austrians as they re created has not bem com uted, but it is said to be very great. The work of the American ivitors whoappeared ou front last week for the first time, contributed notably to the disorganization of the Aue* triau forces, which had crossed the Piave, according to the correspondent of the Milan Ecola Drafted Hud in Ashe County Are Defying Authority.
