If you s re, ou h re seeking- this ha nee to erve your country by buying Lib erty bond. If you are not. why '"t out.' " said Mi Mary Eileen Ahrn. editor of the "Public Libra ries" magazine, in an appealing ad dress to fully COO women workers of st. J-.ej,h county at the Liberty loan inaps meeting held in the audi torium of the high school at o'clock Friday afternoon. Mis Ahern i internationally known. havir.tr represented the American Lihrarv association at fnnfrfneos in Kurope, and is a speaker of ability. She not only made a strong appeal to the pa triotism if her Mlow-wnnifti, but ! cad'ed upon them to buy bonds from a business standpoint. "There is no safer Investment in the world," said Miss Ahearn. "For the United States and all that that constitutes-, stands back of the bond.", and there is no bank in the country which would pay ou four and one-half pr cent! interest for the use of your money." Tor Tioysi "Owr There." . "When you are asked, or rather invited, to buy bond.." continued the speaker, "think' of the boy over there before you answer 'I am tired of giving. I bought bonds in the last issue. T crave, to the Tied Cross, to the Y. M. C. A., to the K. of C When told to fro over the top and take, a certain objective he doesn't say, 'I am tired of poincr over the top. T went over yesterday. I had no rest lat niprht. I har had no reakfast this morninc " Mlfs Ahrn also issued a warning acaint the enemy offensive pace drivA which is now on. "It was not to the mn of th- Krupp works." she said, "that the kaiser spoke re cently, tellinrr of his sorrow for suf fering humanity, it was to the allies that he addressed his message." Miss Alice Justin Jenkins, county chairman, presided at both the mass meetinsr and the luncheon at the Oliver hotel which preceded it. in a moat delightful manner. One point ed remark that she made was to the effect that it were far better for us to reach our hands in our pockets and find no money than for a sol diT to put his hand to his belt and find no cartridges. Preceding Miss Ahern's address the Oliver theater orchestra ren dered several selections and a por tion of the hitrh school chorus, under the direction of Miss Lftie Harmon. san a trroup of son'-rs, concluding with the new Liberty loan snne. which Miss Harmon taucht to the audience. Th luncheon for the women worker, held in the notary room d the 01ier hotel at 1 o'clock, was ;i delightful affair.

McCuIloch of Fort Wayne, state chairman, delivered Hie principal talk at the luncheon. .v'he told of the splendid work that the women of the stat are doiner and emphaized the spirit of co- p ration which exists between the in-n and women workers. She also called attention to the part that womt-n may play in combattlncr (I-.nian peace propaganda.

There are. of course, many towns in the old salient, especially in the southerly portion, which may never receive thMr original inhabitants ak'atii to any extent, while there are many others that cannot yet be- re inhabitated for military reasons.

It now appears certain that Oc: Pt rshin's tlrst army has for tic moment completed its allotted task, having blotted out the su.

As yet. however, there is nothing to indi cate that the American fommande; has embarked on the fa r-reachin--. campaign whb h would re neces sary to attempt the capture of this Oerma n stronghc Id. Must Force Retirement. For the moment the allied offen sive is concentrated on the St. i'i: ent in-La Fere-Lion front. There is, therefore, a strong feeling here thai larger operations which the supreme commander may contem plate in the immediate future hinge on breaking the enemy's resistance in this region and forcing him to new retirement. The Oer mans are known to be feverishly active in the preparation of a new line of defense ahuiz a wide front rouchlv paralleling tlu- Hindenburg line and some eight or ten miles farther to the east. Again behind that front, according to in formation here, they are at work on two other defense positions. The extent of thee strong lines is not so fully known. It is quite evident, however, that the enemy is prepared to fall back ly stages, fighting as he goes, if he is unable. :is is now indicated, to hold hi present front. I 'ort 30 Square Males. i In effect a whole block of coun t j try some :b square miles in extent jand surioundinsr Metz and Thi"n- ! vibe, has been turned into a vast fortress. Py including: Thionville in this continuous defense system, the possible isolation of Metz by llank attack was prevented. The two cities are connected by road and railways In the river valley, sheltered under the hills on both sides, which are crowned with thoroughly modern fortifications, i These are called forts, but in fact jthey are interlocking fortified zone.--I around the entire great position i where every twist and turn of the i hills has been used to full ndvant i age in preparing hidden defense I works. I'very approach from the low lands is' commanded by double and triple gun lints. Peyond doubt, it is said, the position is stronger than Verdun against which the German army, at the top of its power, proved unavailing. Mut Heal I jo Strength. Officials here feel that tbe Amer ica'! people should fully realize the great strength of this position and not pin their hope to any swift cam paizn by Pershing's men for its cafture. The thing can le done, it is aid, because any fortified posi tion can be blasted away by mod ern artillery and with tbe huge American heavy ordnance program eoming forward to supplement the French gun-s. n concentration would be possible that could sweep away the hills thejiise py-. Put it would take time and infinite labor, and j there may be other ways of re.jch i ing the same end in the opinion of I Marshal Foch. RUSSIAN ENEMIES SUFFER BIG DEFEAT LONDON.
