One of the "Imperative military nec

by the Germans along the pathway of
their retreat in France is to convince

essities"
if they either dseert or surrender to
the French they will be instantly shot
in reprisal.
German soldiers now being taken
prisoners by the French along the
■ entire front between the Aisne and
Saint Quentin declare without excep
tion to their captors that they realize
they are going to be shot and are
•quite prepared for it.
While the Germans manifestly have
various aims in view in their system
atic policy of reducing every inch oi
French soil occupied by them to a
wasteless desert, the French military
authorities have been able to eslah
lisli definitely from the German pris
oners captured that not the least oi
these objects is to inject the morale
of desperation into the German army.
The latter are told not only that
they will be instantly killed if they
fall into the hands of the French, but!
that unless they fight to the death in
an effort to keep the Allied troops
from reaching German soil their own
homes, farms and villages will quite
naturally suffer the same fate by way
of reprisal that they have inflicted
on the homes, farms and villages of
France.

surrendering on every possible occas
ion has for a long time past been ful
ly established. One of the most strik
ing evidences of this were the orders
of Hindenberg himself issued after the
French attacks at Verdun last No
vember and December. The prisoners
in these two affairs alone totalled
nearly 20,000.
,_,_ . , . , .
Hindenberg in his orders to his
generals, copies of which have since
fallen into the hands of the French,
scathed in merciless terms the lack
of morale on the part of the German
troops which permitted them to sur
render by thousands without the least
bit of resistance,
that all responsible officers take im
mediate steps to overcome this condl
tion were given,
Imperative orders
Since then, however, this tendency
of the Germans to surrender on every
possible occasion has increased so
steadily, that Hindenberg himself has
forced to take heroic measures
overcome It.
to
German soldiers now being taken
prisoners as well as other sources
confirm the fact that it was Hinden
berg who conceived the idea for the
wholesale devastation of all territory
which the Germans are forced to
abandon. It is under his orders that
all German regiments now falling back
on the western front have regularly:
appointed crews whose sole business
it is to destroy all property and to
leave every inch of the ground that
goes back into the hands of the French
a veritable desert. ,
The same sources confirm likewise
that one of Hindenberg's principal ob
j jects in this is to place the entire Ger
man army now on the west in a po
sition where it will realize that it is
better to die fighting than to sur
render and where it will realize that
only fighting to the last will save
their own homes from the same fate
they have inflicted on France.

Her Troops in "Battle Above The
Clouds."
(United Press)
I LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, Tenn., May
24—The new monument erected by
the state of Ohio commemorating the
bravery of her sons who fought in
the famous battle that took place here
November 24, 1863, was formally dedi
cated today.
The monument, in the form of a
granite column located just below the
summit of the mountain, is nearly 125
feet high.
Exercises were in charge of the
Lookout Mountain memorial commis
sion of Ohio, composed of soldiers of
regiments which took part in the en
gagement. Members of the commis
sion are Samuel H. Holton, McComb,
chairman; Charles W. Wheeler, Rose
burg; Charles H. Grosvenor. Athens;
Alfred E. May, Oberlin; Moses Hill,
Morrow and Benjamin Emery, London.
Governor James M. Cox was the
principal speaker at the dedication.
He attended with members of his mil
itary staff, including Adjutant Gen
eral George H. Wood. Several regl
ments and one Ohio battery of light
artillery fought in the battle. In the
face of almost certain defeat, tire Buck
eye soldiers made their way up the
mountain side and finally were vie
torious.
The names of each organization and
the commenders will be Inscribed on
tablets at the base of the monument.
If some people's ideas of censorship
prevail, It will- be every one's duty to
keep mum and not commit the dastard
ly crime of showing how our military
power can be strengthened.
Those long flowing whiskers that
the farmer is pictured with don't look
nearly so funny when he looks out at
you from the seat of his new six cyl
inder automobile.

The extra thickness of the
Michelin Tread—due to
extra rubber and fabric—
means additional mileage.
Especially is this true since
every ounce of rubber and
fabric is the toughest that
money, skill and experience
can produce.
Michelins give so much
mileage that they'd be
economical even if high
priced. But they're
not high priced.
