Organize Boys to Ferret Out Whining
Menace, Says Patriotic
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

and lefV'hi Phey are working for the
ini .! lany of (hem don't know
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-

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

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.
The Bridge ('lull was delightfully
entertained on last Saturday afternoon
when Airs. J. A. Tabor was the charm
ing hostess. The lour tables for the
bia; et were arranged on the delightful
porch up stairs, and the lovely decor
atlom, of potted ferns and palms added
a refreshing note of cool green to the
pleasant surroundings. Three inter
esting games were enjoyed. The club
prize, four Thrift Stamps, was won by

War Proclamati
MAY 29, 1918,
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. May there be none uuenlisted
on that day,
THE PEOPLE of this State will have the opportunity on June 28th, 1fl, of
showing their loyalty and consi'crntion to the great enterprise this nation
is engaged upon by pledging themselves to save and eeonomize and in
vest in War Savings Stamps.
Tlie material needs necessary to successfully prosecute the war can be met
only if the people of this nation deny themselves some of their customary ex
penditures. It is not enough to furnish thousands of yBung men as this State
h doing. Those men must be clot lied, fed and equipped. Surely when they are
so willing to give their lives we should not hesitate to lend our savings.
The people of this State are expected to save and invest in War Savings
Stamps to the maturity value of $'10,000,1)00.00. 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. This" Slate lias
always responded fully to calls made upon it, and
I feel sure tho-present will be no exception.
In order that this State and its people may
not fall behind other Stales in responding to this
Call, T hereby proclaim Friday, Juno 28th, as War
Savings Day, for the Stato of Mississippi, upon
which day all persons shall give their pledge! for
War Savings Stamps at such times and places
and in Buoh manner as may bo appointed by Hon,
F. E, Gunter, War Savings Director for this State,
acting under the authority of the Secretary of tho
Trea-ury, and pursuant to the proclamation of
the President of the United States.
