August 2, 1918 Money Furnishes the Punch "After all, money forms tho sinews of war," declared Gen eral Foch several months ao in discussing the situation and outlook along the Flanders front when things looked dark est. His army was lighting tooth and nail then, hitting hard and stepping back, parrying a thrust and darting in to deliver a counter punch, and all the while taking heavy toll of the Germans. But he was looking ahead even then. lie knew, as well as other great generals that preceded him, that after all is said and done, money, which in this sense means the supplies that money can be made to furnish, gives an army its punch. That money is absolutely, imperatively nec essary to win any big, long-drawn-out war. Without money the things money will buy any army will go to pieces soon er or later. It has been exem plified over and over again. An army may be ever so well trained: its morale at the outset maybe ever so good; it may have the advantage of position and weapons of warfare, but unless it is kept supplied with all that is necessary for the waging of war, the actual fight ing, even to the hand-to-hand struggle, it will weaken sooner or later. It must have arms, ammunition, food and clothing sufficient to make it effective, and have them all the time. No army fights well on an empty stomach if the light is much prolonged. No army can withstand continued attack if it lacks ammunition. No army can stand winter trench service in adequately clothed. It may meet with reverses and yet came back and tight valiantly. The Italians did this. The Fiench did it. The English did it. Frequently a temporary reverse spurs to greater effort, greater gallantry, greater execution. But this doesn't apply to an army that has lost its punch. Witness the Russians. America's forces have gone abroad full of vim, vigor and fighting spirit. They have held up their end valiantly. They are making good to the conster nation of Germany and the ad miration of their allies. They will uphold American tradition if we at home maintain our end of the problem. And that is to furnish the money properly to supply their needs. To maintain the army punch. It's up to us individually and and collectively. It's our duty to prepare to do our part to the last man. It's up to us to get ready for the next Liberty Loan. Make an exhibit at the flanner Fair. There is a place in one or several depart ments where your work or products will he winners.

It also Is reported that the Bolshe ikl have docided upon the disband ing of the red i;u:ird and beginning tho organization of a new army along o.d lines. This is interpreted by ofll cials here to mean that the Bolshe vikl are carrying out their announctxl plan of conscription and the forcins of the czar's ollieers Into their old positions with the army. Capture by Czecho-Slovak forces of several cities In the Caucasus and a Black sea port, where two Russian warships were seized and a steamer Bunk, Is reported.

Cities captured Included Stavropol, Sirjebrlakov and Mlchel ovk, while it was said that tho Czocho-Slovaks, co-operating with the Russian white guard, had occupied Syzram Turkey Js going to handle the -situation in the Caucasus according to her own ideas. This Is Indicated In a telegram from Constantinople, which quotes an nrticle In the news paper Xasfiri Kkfian presenting the Turkish viewpoint. "We have noth ing to say auainst the principles laid down in the Rrest-Litovsk treaty," says the article, "but when the Cau casus, newly organized, turned toward us and. master of its own destinies, refused to be bound by the treaty, what was more natural for us than to take Into consideration the neces sities of this new situation created on our important eastern front? Could we close our ears to the appeal of the government of a people largely of the same race and same creed as ourselves?" MOB VIOLENCE RAPPED BY WILSON Galls on til Citizens to Dis courage Outbreaks. Washington, July 27. Forcefully denouncing an apparent growth of "mob spirit" as emulating the "law less passion" of Germany, which has "disregarded sacred obligations of law and made lynchers of her armies," President Wilson appealed to the country "to make an end of this disgraceful evil." Lynchings, he said, constitute "a blow at the hearts of law and human justice" and contribute "to German lies about the United States what her most gifted liars can not Improve upon by the way of calumny." The president contiued: "We proudly claim to be the cham pions of democracy. If we really are, in deed and in truth, let us see to It that we do not discredit our own. I say plainly that every American who takes part In the action of a mob or gives it any sort of countenance is no true son of this great democracy, but its betrayer, and does more to discredit her by that single disloyalty to her standards of law and of right than the words of her statesmen or the sacrifices of her heroic boys In the trenches can do to make suffering people believe her to be their savior "I therefore very earnestly and sol emnly beg that the governors of all the states, the law officers of every community and, above all, the men and women of every community in tho United States, all who revere America and wish to keep her name without stain or reproach, will co operate, not passively merely, but ac tively and watchfully, to make an end to this disgraceful evil. It can not live where the community does not countenance it" Draws Ten Years. Chillicothe, O., July 27. Private Jacob E.

Sirs. Mary A. I!:iiiirli:im, president of the Pixie Agricultural company of Wash ington. Serj:e:mt r:iughani joined the Lafayette esciiilrillo in 1917 when he was eighteen years old and won the Military medal, the highest French honor to noncommissioned men. The Incident that earned the ser geant the medal was described in a let ter he wrote recently. Faying tribute to the wonderful spirit of his French comrades, Sergeant P.iiughuin said: "We had been sent out to patrol back of the German lines and to at tack anything enemy "we saw. Having incendiary bulls in my gun, I was pre pared to attack a German 'sausage' or observatory balloon. Just ns I was beginning the descent to attack, I saw a r.oehe airplane going In the direction of our lines to do photographic work. I put on full speed and signaled to the other planes to follow. They evident ly did not pee my signal, for they didn't go down with me. When I got 100 meters from the Koche I started firing. The enemy replied by turning loose both guns at me. I must have got him, however, with the first blast, for when I pulled up to make another dive he was silent. "Then something happened that would make the goodest man on earth cuss, find as I am not one of the best, you can Imagine that I left little un said. My motor stopped absolutely dead. There was only one thing for me to do and that was to dive, lose the Doche and try to volplane to the French lines. As I went past the Ger man machine it immediately came down and, putting some nice steel very close to him, I did all the ucrobacy I had ever learned. When I had finished I found that I had come down from 10,000 to 1,000 feet and there was no I5oche in sight. Alone in No Man's Land. "I then looked around for a place to land. I saw a fairly good place off to the right and mado it. I then stepped out of the machine right on the face of a dead German. It took me a min ute to realize what was hnppening and I awoke to the sound of bullets whiz zing past my head. That didn't disturb me much, because I was wondering why somebody hadn't burled the Ger man. Looking around, however, all I could see was dead Germans. It sud denly dawned on mo that I was In Is'o Man's Land. Of all the places there are to land in France and Germany I had to land between the two. "Then I realized what a predicament I was in and begun to think up some way to get out of It. The thought came to me that If I was nearer the German lines than to the French, I had better get rid of those Incendiary balls in my pocket, for if the Germans catch you with them you are shot at pnce.

H. climbed back Into my machine to the tune of bullets and took out a load of over BOO cartridges, threw them on the ground and then removed my compass nud altimeter. "The first thing I struck was a grave, unfinished, with two of the enemy in it. I eased myself down into It, lifted iff) one of the Germnns and put the cartridges beneath him. I started walking back to my machine. As I got near it the Boche lines started their mltrailleurs and rifles at me, and the French, unaware that I was one of them, also opened up. I had to walk 500 feet between the lines and it was no Joke with all that fire concentrated in my direction. One bullet passed so close to my face that I really felt the wind. I decided that I'd have to go to one of the lines, enemy or friend, but just then I heard a machine overhead. I looked up and saw white puffs break ing out all around It. Signaled With Handkerchief. "On the way the fire got so hot I had to fall face down, and I didn't move for, I guess, five minutes. There being no good reason for my being shot like a dog, I yanked out my hand kerchief and waved it at the French linos. "They finally got it, after ten min utes of waving, and I saw a French ofiicer beckoning me from a bit of woods. If there ever has been a faster f)0-yard sprint I never heard of it I ran so fast that I ran right into the officer, and very nearly knocked his re volver out of his hand. I showed i!m my Identification card and then started cursing him for shooting at me. He had been taking potshots at me out there. He apologized, saying that he could only see my head, because his position was slightly lower than No Man's Land. "They took me up to the divisional general, and I reported that I had seen more than 300 dead Germans and only two Frenchmen. It made hlra so happy that he gave me a dinner, and compli mented me for being a good soldier." Stolen Vouchers Recovered. Columbus, July 29.
