STATE BOARD GALLS ALL Til IDE COLORS Thi rally to the colors does not .mean a rally to arms, but a rally to 'abate suffering and death by the pre vention of communicable diseases. Frequently there is a rallying to the colors in the front yard and a call for the physician because of the insani tary conditions of the back yard. The tack yarda of many homes and busi ness places are good breeding places for. flies. Clean up the back yard first and then the front yard. Clean back yards will teach more sanitation than a magazine or a newspaper. If the owner,-, of a village home 13 blessed with rear land sufficient for a garden re-is indeed blessed, and for him. one will not have to caution about taking more physical exercise. It may truly t e said that a garden contains more "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness" than the declaration of independence and the boy or girl who comes into the relation of operator therein has i heard the "call to the colors." Again it may be truly said that an i Insanitary back yard creates an en vironment that is dangerous to your health. Some take pride in a beautiful j clean front yard and at the same time have an ugly, unclean back yard. The j back yard in such case has the ad vantage, for the weeds of insanitation grow more profusely and rapidly than : the flowers of sanitation. ; The Florida State Board of Health desires to make an appeal to all tho ' people of this state to rally to the ; colors of sanitation. HOLY WAR. EXPERTS , INSTIGATED SHOW BY THE GERM S MING PICTURES TORPEDOED CRAFT Christiania. Norway, May 29. (Cor respondence of The Associated Press.) Moving picture operators on German submarines at sea are late ad ditions to the U-boat fleets. Films are made of merchant vessels sinkings and taken home to be shown to the German populace to give an idea of the dangers of the deep. .'Details of how a German submarine of ',the Jarger type commandeered the big Norwegian steamer Xorefos and used her as a tow boat for weeks at at "time In the Atlantic were related here recently by members of her crew. The Xorefos was overtaken by the German Submarine off the Canary Islands early this year. Two German naval officers and fourteen sailora were sent . aboard as ,a - prije f boat crew.. . -' i . .Then the eubmarine departed on a 'pirating expedition, the Germans dn the Xorefos adusting the wireless ap paratus so as to be able to keep in communication with the undersea boat. On this trip the submarine was gone eight days and upon her return to, the Xorefos the sailors heard that she had been in search of a British fleet of merchantment from the other Bide of the Atlantic. "The submarine then tied up to the Xorefos for two weeks and the Xore fos roamed the sea with the submarine In 'tow, as the U-boat was short of fuel.. c H Tha Xorefos soon ran short of fuel and an effort was made to utilize green peanuts from the cargo, but they soon developed a gas which caused numerous small explosions in ine zire ooxes ana createa sucn a stream of sparks through the funnel that the ship nearly caught fire. So no more peanuts were used and for several days the Xorefos wallowed along with the wind and tide. "When other ships were sighted the Germans unfurled the Xorwegian flag. After another two weeks cruise the XT-boat returned to her "mother" ship. After helping themselves to a part Of the cargo of rubber, the prize crew returned to the submarine, the Nor wegians were ordered into lifeboat and the Xorefos was sunk by three bombs exploded In her hold. The mo tion picture operator on the U-boat todk film records of all the importart events, starting with the seizure and the developments of the voyage with eaeh return of the U-boat to the cap turned ship. 'The Xorwegian sailors were in life boats several days, being picked up by a French steamer and several weeks ago they landed in Christiana after an absence of five months.

Germany instigated the "Holy War" of Turkey to kill Christians in the Ottoman empire and India. This fact is revealed by former American Am bassador Henry Morgenthau in his reminiscences in the World's Wterk, Just published. Baron Wangenheim, the German ambasador at Constanti nople, told Mr. Morgenthau in so many . words that Germany's real purpose in forcing Turkey into the war wa3 to. arouse Mohammedan fanaticism against the British and French. Mr. I Morgenthau says: In the early days Wangenheim had explained to me Germany's real pur pose in forcing Turkey into the con flict. He made this explanation quiet ly and nonchalantly, as though It had been quite the most ordinary matter in the world. Sitting in his office puf fing away at his big black German cigar, he unfolded Germany's scheme to arouse the whole fanatical Moslem world against the Christians. Germany had planned a real "Holy War" as one means of destroying English and French influence in the world. "Tur key herself is not the really important matter," said Wangenheim. "Her army is a $mall one. and we do not expect it to do very much. For the most part it will act on the defensive. But the big thing Is the Moslem world. If we can stir the Mohamme dans up against the English and Bus sians, we can force them to make peace." What Wangenheim evidently meant by the "big thing" became apparent on November 13th. when the sultan is sued his declaration of war; this de claration was really an appeal for a Jihad, or a "Holy War," against the infidel. Soon afterward the Sheik-ul-Islam published his proclamation sum moning the whole Moslem world to rise and massacre their Christian op pressors. The sultan's proclamation was an official public document, and dealt with the proposed Holy War only in a general way, but about this same time there appeared a secret pamphlet which gave instructions to the faithful in more specific terms. This paper was not read in the mosques; it was distributed stealthily in all Moham medan countries India, Egypt, Moroc co, Syria and many others; and it was significantly printed In Arabic, the language of the Koran. It was a lengthy document the English trans lation contains 10.000 words full of quotations from the Koran; and its style was frenzied in its appeal to racial and religious hatred. It de scribed a detailed plan of operation: for the assassination and extermina tion -otaU Chxistians--except. thoepf German nationality. . A few extracis will fairly portray its spirit: " But the time has now come for the Holy War, and by thl3 the land of Islam shall forever be freed from the power of the Infidels who op press It. The Holy War ha 3 now be come a sacred duty. Know ye the blood of infidels in the Islamic lands may be shed with impunity except those to whom the Moslem power has nromised security and who are allied with it. (Herein we find that Ger mans and Austrlans are excepted from massacre.) The killing of infidels who rule over Islam has become a sacred duty, whether you do it secret lv or orenlv. aa the Koran has de creed: 'Take them and kill them whenever you come across them. Ba hold we have delivered them into your hands and given you Supreme power over them. He who kills even one un believer of those who rule over us. whether he does it secretly or openly, shall be rewarded by God. And let every Moslem in whatever part of the world he may be. swear a solemn oath to kill at least three or four of the in fidels who rule over him, for they are the enemies of God and of the faith." "The Holy Way." says this pamph let, "will be of three forms. First the Individual war. which consists of the Individual personal deed. This may be with cutting, killing instruments, like the Holy War which one of the faithful made against Peter Galy. the Infidel English governor, like the slaying of the English chief of rolice in India, and like the killing of one of the of ficials arriving in Mecca by Abi Busir (may God be pleased with him.." The document gives several other instances of assassination which t,he faithful are enjoined to Imitate. The believers are told to organize bands and to go forth and Iay Christians. The most useful are those organized and operating in secret. "It Is hoped that the Islamic world of today will profit very greatly from such secret bands." The third method is by "organized campaigns," that is, by trained armies. HOSIERY Gordon Watson, Parker and Reese Co.
