PAYING ATTENTION TO SLACKERS InteraatKTi il Nev. s Srrvb e: MEMPHIS. Tenn., June 19. The Ku Klux Klan is grow ing. It prom ises to assume the pi. ice it held right aftr the Civil war. No other agency holds such terror for evildoers as does the hooded Klan. Reports from Texas, Oklahoma. Louisiana. Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida indicate that the Klan is getting together in hundreds of communities. Quietly and silently it works. It is not recognized as an organiza tion. It has no vMble head. Orders come from out of the air. Punish ment is swift and sure. Death is the extreme penalty, yet , seldom administered. Tar and feath ers and the lash are most common ly used. One of the most striking results growing out of the Klan is found among Negro laborers. A Negro who will not work is a slacker. He is given a warning by the Ku Klux Klan. A second warning is never given. Most often it is not necessary. The offender has gone to work vol untarily or has tasted the bite of the whip and the smart of the salt rub bed in his wounds and has left for other parts. Pro-Germans and other enemies of the Fnited States are also under the eyes of the Klan. In numerous towns the Klan in cowl and mount ed, has passed silently through the streets, a warning to all slackers. ENGINEER OFFICERS' TRAINING CAMP TO BE AT CAMP HUMPREYS WASHINGTON. June 1?. MaJ.

BRITISH CREDITS FOR IR COSTS II Bonar Law Introduces New Vote of Credit for 500, 000,000 Pounds Re views Situation. LONDON, June 19. Andrew nar Law, chancellor of the chequer, introducing a vote credit for 000,000,000 pounds in Bo-ex-of the house of commons Tuesday, gave some figures regarding the total war credits which with the present ap propriation, would amount to 7, o42,000,00o pounds, and announced that he would postpone until to morrow hi.s common national ex penditure. He then proceeded to give a icview of the general situa tion. , "The latest phase of this great struggle," he said, "is the Austrian offensive in Italy. It is part of an intense offensive which has been carried on along the whole battle front. Our enemien arc right in thinking that a great success gained on that front would have far reach ing, perhaps decisive. results on the general battle front In France. For that reason the general sus picion that the initiative came from Berlin, rather than from Vienna, I believe to be justified. "The offeiiMve was launched by a large number of Austrian divi sions. A good deal more than half their total force on that front is en- paced in the attack. AH I can say today is that after three days of fighting the attack has failed. L'ncnij's LatCbt Objective Fails. "Our advices from Italian head quarters are that the enemy has not secured in three days the ob jectives which they had hoped to obtain the first day. And it also is true to say that no offensive on this scale throughout the whole war has at its initiation secured io little success. "There is no doubt that our own and the French troops are giving a good account of themselves, and the Italians have been fighting through out with the highest courage and the most marked tenacity. The Italian higher command has no fear of the result. The danger is not yet over, but the -government can express admiration and gratitude to the Italians for the share they have taken in the general struggle." . Knew German Plan Before DrHc. Speaking of the western front Mr. Bonar Law said that British and French headquarters knew the po sitions to which the German divi sions were being sent before the commencement of the offensive on March 21. He admitted that the attack had attained an amount of success which had caused the ut most anxiety. "But." he added, "three months- have passed and although the bat - tie is a continuous one, we Can look back upon what has happened with some confidence. Germans Had Tlirce Objektives. "In the whole campaign the Ger mans have had before them three great objectives, one was Paris; an other was the channel ports; the third was not only the defeat, if they could achieve it. of the allied army, but the breaking of the com munications between the British and French forces. Although the allies have had to give much ground, not one of the enemy's strategic objectives has been at tained. "I think if any one in the early days of the struggle had tugge-sted to Hindcnburg that after three months tho position would be what it is today, he would have treat ed the suggestion with scorn. There is clear and increasing evidence in the German press that they are be coming disappointed with the suc cess, great as it has been, which has attended the German arms so far. "On the other hand, If we could have foreseen three months ago What the position is now, our anxiety would have been less." The chancellor classed the battle of St. Quentin and the first battle of the Lys as great German suc cesses, while the battle r f Arras was one in which the British were entirely victorious The same was true of the second phase of the bat tle of the Lys, he said. Regarding that part of the line ..ill 'i' lift .- I - held by the French, he said, the first attack was a great victory for the Germans, but that later an immense attack was started which entirely failed in Its object. Question of Helenes. "The offer.shc of March 21." he continued, "has brought about unity of command, which results have justified. The long continued bat tle must be a question of reserves. The great source of allied reserves is America and it is undoubtedly part of the German scheme to use un the allied reserve betöre they can be reinforced from America. Eut in this they have not succeed ed. "I wish it were possible to tell the hous-e the number of troops which tdnce March 21 hav been sent from this country to strengthen our own forces. It is a large number, but at I have said, the main source of the allied reserves is America. C S. Troops Have Justified Hopes. "Necessity has made it possible what seemed imposMM. The American troops are now coming; thev have come. America is not coming into the war; she is in it. "I am sure that every member of the house realizes and U delight ed to know that the American troops have been righting and have justified the liih hopes which everyone ac quainted with the character of the i T ..; American people formed of whatlTry fJEVS-TIMES WAN I AD the. fighting value of .these troops would be. ! "Of course I cannot give you j numbers. Rut the best way of mak 1 ing the house realize how big the change has been will be to read this extract frun the minutes of the last bupreme war council: "Thanks to the prompt and cor dial cooperation of the president of the United States, arrangements which have been set on foot for tho transportation and brigading of American trocps will make it im possible for the enemy to gain vic tory by wearing out the allied re serves, before he has exhausted Iiis own." Anjeriean Reference Cheered. The references to America were laudly cheered. Mr. Bonar Law also wished It were possible to attract the general notice of the country and tabulate in some way the work of the air service. There was no branch of British effort in the war of which the people had greater reasons to be proud. It had played through out a magnificent part, not only in assisting the British troops, but in helping Italy and epecially the French in their Ion? struggle. The submarine menace a year ago appeared to be the greatest danger the allies haJ to cope with and was regarded by the Germans as a nuans to victory. All that now was changed, he declared. The shipping figures, which would be published this week, would show that the world's ship construction, for 'he tirst time, exceeded the destruction. There was no change whatever, so far as human foresight could divine, of the country being starved into "submission, and that consideration had an important effect on the mili tary position. Unending Stream of I. S. Soldiers. The chancellor again referred to the unending stream of American 'oops coming across the water, and w..'id it would continue until the wi ole man power of America, If necessary, would be thrown into the scale. What had already been done and had been arranged for showed clearly that the extent of American military cooperation on the battle field of Franc; would not be limited by transportation but only by the number of trained men available. That was the great fact of the present year, and thus had the. Ger man hope of nullifying American help in the war been a mistaken hope. Referring to the present lull on the western front, he predicted that it was only the lull preceding a hurricane. Bit he had the greatest confidence in the moral courage of thy? allied and American troops and their readiness to face what was coming, notwithstanding all they had suffered and endured. Their morale had never been higher. Civilians Who Travel Now Are Having Bad Time By Larl C Ree es.

News-Times Special Srvl e: INDIANAPOLIS. Ind.. June F. Slackers and all cases of doubt vvill !-e regarded with severe scrutiny, according to Lucius B. Swift, chair man of the third Indiana district ap peal board, here today. "This board has ,ts-u n . !f t ho at titude that all marriages ntractel after tln- dt--. Lir.itu.it f w.t r bv the I ..... , i niieu Mates are not rroutnis for deferred classi'. cation." Mr. Swift sail. "Many f these are un doubtedly eases which wore seriously contemplated prior t th- declara tion of war but this bond fcas found that the tw.i elat-se of :actiit mar riages are identical in their proof of their justness, and for that rea son it has b'ome necessary for us to place all these men in class one. "We have also found that many married men without children have been placed in class four and all of these have been or are being placed in class two. "In eases of where t lie re re daughters or sisters of young men on farms who claim exemption on agricultural grounds we are placing these tuen in class one as it is evi dent that if we are 'o raise an army of live million men it will become necessary that we also rai-e a large land army of women in this country. Young women who rue physically able to drive tractjrs or horses to the various farm implements- must do so in order to help win this war and raise an army with which to win the war. There is but one thing we are looking to now ami that is to winning the war and that must be done at all costs. Vies Apeal for Husbands. "The claim has been made by many men that their wives have no opportunity to make a living for themselves should they be called into service. The board here, how ever, contends that every wife is a housekeeper and because -he is a housekeeper she vvill be able to earn a livelihood and that she can secure a position any time she wants it. Orher young wives who are ap pealing for their huband on the grounds that they will be placed in destitute circumstances have been found by the board to be surrounded with wealth. "It is frankly admitted by the members of this board that it is somewhat drastic but the hoard feels that the one aim and purpose of it is to assist in raising an army with which to defeat Germany. That is what this board is doing and I be lieve that we will weed out prac tically every slacker in our. district. I understand that other di.-tiict hoards in Indiana are incline. 1 to be somewhat more lenient in some re spects; but it :s only a matter of time until every board will be called upon to send their youn men to the colors regardless of the sacri fices which it will eff-ct.
