THE BEST CRACKERS—Just say "Snow Flakes' 29c 20c and 45c OF THE GREAT WAR SLOGANS BORN IN CONFLICT WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY—MANY ARE UNIQUE NEW YORK.—-The war has develop ed many dramatic phrases, slogans, terse epigrams, or laconic statements. Looking back over the perspective of four years of fighting it appears that the majority of these grew out of tense crise in battles, or marked historic moments when the fate of nations hung in the balance. Take for example the slogan, "They shall not pass." During the tremend ous fighting in front of Verdun when the Germans made their great desper ate drive to break through the French battle lines in 1916 this saying passed from lip to lip among the French sol diers gathered there in a long-drawn battle to check the terrific onslaught of the Germans. How it originated is not clear. Some have attributed it to Marshal Joffre. others to Marshal Petain, who was in command of the French fighting forces at Verdun. Others believe the laying originated with the men in the ranks. At any event they adopted it and for months while the Germans vainly threw their battalions upon the stubbornly de fended forts around the French city, the saying. "They shall not pass" be came the watchward at Verdun. And they did not pass. To Americans the sententious utter ance of General Pershing when he placed a wreath on the tomb of La fayette in the Picpus cemetery In Paris conveyed a significance and an Inspiration. "Lafayette, we are here," was all he said but to the American as well as to the Frenchman It was better than oratory. It meant to the American, "We are here for business and our business is to fight." It thrilled th hearts of General Persh ing's people at home and the modesty of It filled them with a glow of satis faction. Another dramatic phrase which stirred the patriotism of the American people was that attributed to an Am erican commander, at Chateau Thier ry when he responded to the advice f H C.fcCtl, , It Raises the Dough Pi a a If you are not already using Cres cent, you should try it.

This is un endurable. We are going to counter attack." These statements have been attributed to bc^th Major General Robert L. Bullard and to Major Gen eral Omar Bundy. Some observers have regarded this incident as the turning point of the war. From that time the Americans advanced. The victory of Chateau Thierry followed and thereafter the German army re treated. Vice-Admiral William S. Sims, com manding the American naval forces in European waters was asked when the first Yankee warships arrived in Eng land early In May, 1917, "When will you be ready for business?" He re plied, "We can start at once. We made our preparation on the way over." There was a dramatic moment, a great crisis in the world's history when General Pershing placed the American army under the command of the then General Foch who had Just been made commander of all the allied forces, but none of the phrases that General Pershing used were widely quoted as eplgramatic. One which might so have been selected was the words, "All that we have are yours. Dispose of them as you will." The retort of Major Charles Whit tlesey, commander of the "lost battal ion" of the American army in the Ar gonne Forest when the Germans sur rounded his isolated command and their commander demanded its sur render was one of the war's historic phrases. "Go to hell," he replied. The first great battle of the war, the battle that stopped the Germans at the Marne elicited from the lips of Marshal Joffre the historic words; "The hour has come to advance at all costs; to die where you stand rather than to give way." General, afterward Marshal Petain, inspired his weary troops at Verdun by an order of the day concluding with the words:: "Courage, we will get them." General Foch, commanding the French army in the first battle of the Marne, had been almost overwhelmed by the onward sweep of the German forces. In a memorable message to Joffre he said: "My right is crushed. My left is in retreat. I am attacking with my center." He did attack and drove a wedge through the German lines that started their retreat to the Aisne. The people of Paris were stun ned by the rapidity with which the Germans advanced in their first rush toward the French capital. The rail way stations were besieged but the great majority of the people knew th^y must remain. In this tragic moment General Gallieni, military commander o fthe city, inspired confidence and cheered the faint-hearted with his watchword, "Jusqua bout," or ''To the very end." The populace took up the cry and Gallieni with his army played a signal part in hurling back the leg ions of Von Kluck at the, Marne. No less inspiring but born of less tragic circumstances was the saying of General Gouraud who, upon enter ing Strassburg after the liberation of Alsace and Lorraine declared: "The day of glory has come." Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig, commander-in-chief of the British armies in France, gave utterance to an appeal in addressing his soldiers which stirred a responsive chord in the hearts of the allied peoples throughout the world, weeks the enemy had battered the French lines in a desperate effort to separate them from the French and drive through to the channel ports. For three Day after day the British had been driven back. On April 13, 1918, Mar shal Haig called upon his men for one last effort. "Every position must be held to the last man," he ordered. "There must be no retirement. With our backs to the wall and believing in the justice of our cause, everyone of us must fight to the end." When Vice-Admiral Sir Rosslyn Wemyss went to tell the German com mander of the naval terms of the armistice one of the Teuton admirals said: "It is inadmissable that our fleet should be given up without hav ing been beaten." "It had only to come out," was the laconic retort of Admiral Wemyss. Later when the surrendering Ger man warships were escorted by the British fleet into British waters. Vice Admiral Beatty's historic signal, after the enemy fleet had been moored read: "The German flag is to be haul ed down at 3:57 and is not to be hoisted again without permission." Premier Venizelos, spurning the German ambassador's Invitation to side with the Central Powers, when Monasfir and a part of Serbia was of fered to Greece as a German bribe, replied: "You ask me to dishonor my signautre, to dishonor country and to violate its obligations towards Serbia and, as remuneration, you offer me part of the corpse of that which I am expected to kill. My country, sir, is too little to commit infam ity."
