They will willingly continue to do so. The government has lately promulgated an order excluding ! unpaid exchanges between newspapers from the mails. Unpaid sponsible for the heinous outrages upon the civilian populations overridden by Germany: those who have been responsible for breaking the rules of war and using poisonous gas in battle: those continued, and that hereafter each must pay the regular sub scription price for every newspaper that comes into his office.

Grasty, writing from t London, is doing too much in the war. It is crippling its in , dtistries in order to get men of almost any age to send to the j front, lie thinks it up to America to carry a larger share of the l load. 1'erhaps it is. Little information on the subject is available in this country. It may well be that England has assumed an undue j burden. However that may be, there is just one policy for Anicri- In whatever words the thought was expressed in pie-historic times, when the vocabulary of man was limited, it is more than likely our ancestors had arrived at a verbal means of making known the give-lbem-hell idea before they had traveled far on the road to-civilization. The chronicle of the world has more to do with lighting r lighting between tribes between countries, between nations than it has with anything else. The battles recounted in the old testa ment arc not the least interesting reading in the hook. The bat tles of history is the literature with the greatest appeal to a boy in his first search for knowledge. There is something in the three words "Give them hell" j "What men do lives after them" sometimes lo their sorrow, that expresses the spirit of battle better than any other phrase 1 An I. W. W. has been quoting president Wilson's "The New ca and for all Americans. That is to do all they possibly can. There. is still a disposition when one group of citizens is called on to make sacrifices to inquire whether other people are being treated the same way. If a limit is set to the price that may be charged for a certain product it is natural for the producer lo inquire whether other people are working under the same limitations. It is natural, but it is not the way to win the war. The question for every American to ask is, "Am 1 doing all I can?" It makes no difference that somebody else may be a slacker. When every citizen judges himself by that test there will be no trouble over what the countrv does. -The best way to figure the effect of any measure on the Ger mans is to observe the effect of similar measures on the Allies. The A.Uics know that the German soldier is made unhappy by airplane raids, because the Allied soldier doesn't enjoy then:. The Allies calculate to a nicety the effect of mustard gas on the onemy by watching its effect on their own troops. Wc all know the anxiety which the German offensive caused. We know how disheartening it was to read of troops constantly being forced back. We know, too, the enthusiasm resulting from a successful Allied offensive. So wc arc in a position to know what a change must have come over the spirit of the German troops from the .elation of the successful offensives to the de pression of the setback in the salient they had driven toward Paris. It is a big thing to feel you have "the jump" on the other fellow. That spirit will be worth several army corps to the Allies. o 4.4,M M.U 4,4 4 4 4.4 4.4.4 U,M 4 4 4 4 4 44 4 4 4 4 4 44 44 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 44 UNDER TWENTY-ONE iM.4J,4t4,4J4,44A44r4,U,4,4.4.444 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4.4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 I'igurcs just made public by the Marine corps show that since our entrance into the war the corps has enlisted 1'5,S2G recruits tinder 21 years of age, representing 'SO per cent of the enlistments during the period. The policy of the Marine corps in admitting boys of IS years and over into the ranks is more than justified, officers claim, by the heroic fighting by the marines at Chateau Thierry and Bclleau wood, the showing they have made in their sector of the Marne line since that time, and the youthfulncss of many of the marines who have been decorated and cited in France. While it was known that many boys under 21 were serving with the sca-oldiers, the statement that they aggregate nearly one .third of ,the enlistments was a surprise even to marine officers themselves. The Cologne Gazette complains that a number of American dentists who Jiavc remained in Germanv arc garnering excessive lees because there is a set of society people inBcrlin "Who think it fashionable to be charged steep prices on bills matlc out in English." The Germans arc due for another and quite different bill before long. It, too, will be made out in English. o wc must pay for its free distribution.

The next time Chief of Police Bloom eocs out on a raiding expe dition, he is going to wear a pair of smoked glasses, his decision in this matter having come about as the re sult of an affair which took place in one of the hotels on North Cortcz street near the depot Saturday night. The chief has been making strenuous efforts for the past several weeksto break up the illicit love matches which arc being staged in divers local hotels which don't seem to care much what goes on in the various rooms, and on Saturday night one of his sleuths who had been stationed at the rear entrance of the hotel in question re ported that it would be advisable to raid one of the rooms. The chief and his lieutenant, William Sicck mann, allowed the guilty couple ample time in which to prepare for their love-making, and then caved in the door and switched on the electric lights. The dusky lady was taken so total ly unawares that she did not have time to protect herself from the cru-u-ell gaze of the pair of cops, and lay on the bed a la September Morn or a la Mother Eve or a la Lady Godiva or a la most anything else one could think of that wasn't overly clad. Her male companion was frightened so badly that the chief had to take his gaze off the surround ing scenery. and ,do something to quiet the fellow. The cops finally managed to leave the room grace fully with the warning to the dusky belle that she get inside a kimona or a bath robe or some other suitable covering and also to get ready for a trip to the cop station. The chief hung around for a matter of a few minutes and when the girl and her companion had dressed, took both of them to the county jail, where they spent the night. On Monday morn ing the guilty couple decided that the cheapest way out of the mix-up was to get married, and consequently Cupid was allowed to triumph over the maicstv of the law and the char ges which had been lodged against the young people were wiped off the slate.
