Organize Boys to Ferret Out Whining Menace, Says Patriotic Writer. New York,. .Tune 15. Henry Irving Dodge, author and patriotic propagan (list, today made a natioual appeal for the suppression of "The Yellow Dog" by the establishment in every munici pality in the United States of a branch of the Boy Detectives of America. "The Yellow Dog," according to Mr. Dodge is the whining native son who constantly harps on German efficiency, of our figthing England's war, of its being a rich man's war, of the crime of sending our boys over there, of the im posibility of defeating Germany, of charging our 'Dollar-year' men with being profiteers, of declaring that a large percentage of war tax money goes to grafters and 'all the rest of thefet ble minded twaddle.' " In making his appeal for the co-oper ation of the mayors, superintendent of public instruction, members of pa triotic societies, Scoutmasters of the Boy Scouts 01 America and Y. M. C. A secretaries, -Mr. Dodge declares that "The Yellow Dog" is a menace far greater than the German army. His atacks are concealed while the at tacks of the German army may be guarded against. '", speak onservatively, says Mr. Dbdre, "hen 1 say that every 'yel ilO ,' .,ual in strength to one intently ' '.,','u in the Gorman army. , lies Ite. Yellow Dog1 are sap llwj tits streugth at home, They are ie foundation of attack and lefV'hi Phey are working for the ini .! lany of (hem don't know If plan for the supression of "The Yellow Dog" is outlined in his most recent work of fiction. In it he portrays the manner in which the hoy power of a suburban town was harnessed under the name of the "Boy Detectives of America" and the town was cleansed of yellow dogism without unto Ward friction and without the use of the usual pol ve channels. Now he wants the hoy p-wer of every munici pality la America harnessed in the same manner in order to accomplish the same result nationally. All that is necessary to make the mnipairp an accomplished fact, accord- lu fr Dodt determined meleaaer.a of bl .'y municl I ho :!'. idke the trouble of ex . 'he details to the youngsters. P 'oys are first to be organized. They are to be regular detectives for the purpose "f ferreting out "The Yel low Dogs." "Every boy must keep his ear? wide open for direct ami implied attacks upon the government and keep on the end of his tongue the one ques tion "How do you know?" The first move in the campaign is for some patriotic citizen to arrange for meeting with the boys and ex plum to them just what the "Boy De tectives' of America" is and the mean ing of tin organization to the welfare of the United States. Then the club is to be organized. Every boy is to be given an official membership card and every member is to receive a sup ply of the "Yelloy Dog" cards to pass out to pei suns who pass along the "feeble -minded twaddle." Mr Dodge i at his own exepense. of fers to furnish membership cards ami "The fellow Dog" cards to the mam bars of every club that is formed. The reverse side are numerous de scriptions of just what constitutes "The Yellow Dog." Some of these en lightening phrases read: "If a man talks against the govern ment and can't back up what he says, he's a yellow dog." "The meanest yellow dog of the lot Is the one that stands up and hears hi country abused without protest. "Any man who tells the government about its faults and how to correct 'em is its friend; any man who tells the government about its faults just to discourage, is a yellow dog." "Anybody who says Colonel Vander bilt loaned Franc forty millions is a yellow dog He ain't got that much." "Any nan who won't buy a bon I isn't Witting to pay his share of the expenses of our brothers in the trendies who are risking their lives lighting for him. Can any yellow dog be yellerer'n that?"

We're behind the government. Swat the yel low dog." 1 "All yellow dogism is made in Ger ' many." A supply of these cards should be carried by every member of the Boy in ' ' lives of America and when he hears any person make a remark in d" t.ii5 that person is m "The rt lu bog ' tlits the to-:- detective B34d approach him with the query: Gov. Theo. 0. Bilbo and Hon. Zan Anderson addressed a large audience Thursday night at Marshall Park in the interest of their race for Congress from the sixth congressional district. The speakers were introduced by Hon. VV. D. Bullard. Gov. Bilbo who spoke first based his eligibility to the office In Washing ton on three things; his preparation, his record, and his convicitons. He bid of having studied long at the University at Nashville, the University of Michigan, and Vanderbilt Uni versity, after which lie served success ively as state senator, lieutenant gov nor, anil governor of Mississippi. He enumerated his accomplishments while in the latter ooffice. Among many things he mentioned the estab lishment of a pardoning board free from politics, the fight for good roads, a reformatory school for boys and girls, the creation of a state tax com mission to work toward the equaliza tion of tax burdens, and the exemption of shipyards from taxation. The Gov ernor pointed out, that after the waf there would be a great likelihood that the millionaires would try to enslave the people of this country econom- -ically. He urged the voters to use their discretion and to elect a man to Congress who would pledge himself to protect, the interests of the working man. He pictured the great future that lay in store for South Mississippi, and promised to lend his support to make this country the playground of America, into which the riches of the East and North would empty. Hon. Zan Anderson followed Gov. Bilbo. Mr. Anderson declared himself for the unmitigated prosecution of the War. and for intelligent reconstruction w'hen peace would come. He called upon his efficient record of many years as a public servant in the state legis lature to testify as to his fitness for the congressional office. There were many innocent person alities and pleasantries indulged in by both speakers, and the audience re celved these remarks with much applause. w.s.s. BRIDGE.'

MAY 29, 1918, TO THE PEOPLE OP THE UNITED STATES: THIS WAR is one of nations not of amies and all of our hundred million people must be economically and industrially adjusted to war conditions if this nation is to play its full part in the conflict. 1 appeal to all who now own either Liberty Bonds or War-Saving Stomps to oontinuo to practice economy and thrift and to appeal to all who do not own Government securities to do likewise and purchase them to the extent of their means. The man who buys Government securities transfers the purchasing power of his money to the United States Government until after this war, and to that same degree does not buy in competition with the Government. I earnestly appeal to every man, woman and child to pledge themselves on or before the twenty-eighth of June, to save con stantly and to buy as regularly as possible the securities of the Government, and to do this as far as possible through membership in War-Saving? Societies. The twenty-eighth of June ends this special period of enlistment in the great volun teer army of production and saving here at home.

Similar allotments have been made to other States and the President of the United States has called on tho people of the various States on June 28th, to indicate their willingness to prac tice the patriotic self-denial required of all of us, by pledging themsolvos to pur chase War Savings Stamps dining the remainder of this year.
