The greatest effort ever organized in this county, to meet the greatest need ever known in this country, had its confirmation last night. Pursuant to previous meetings, already noted, and to later arrangements, there were assembled at the Rogerson Cafe, not only all the men named, above as| belongbig to the Twin Falls county or ganization, but also representatives from adjoining counties as fol lows ; Ex-Governor J. 11.

T , . , . , ^ C hairman Breckenndge introduced the state secretary, Mr. R. E. Randall, of Boise, as a Scotchman from necessity, but an Ameri ( , an from choice ; and it is safe to say that within the next hour ev or - v Person present was made to realize, as never before, the preg mint tacts ot our situation as a nation. It was driven home with startling emphasis and iteration, by anecdote, by illustration and fjy f ac f s< that the United States is already engaged in colossal and cruel war will the greatest military power in the world; that «ie allied nations of Europe have already for almost three years, with unparalleled losses, have been fighting the battle of liberty— our battle; that the Wood of our sons and brothers will very soon be an( j mav already have been shed in the same cause ; that the ™md of succor and assistance for our brave soldiers is vast and im minent; and that the blood of every patriotic American must tingle with desire for service—a service that is sacrifice—that will give, and gives, and gives again 1 Looking this situation in the face, the highest national authori ties in such work have decided that one hundred millions of dollars must be provided at once. This is an emergency call, entirely out 8 j ( j e 0 f se p a rate from and in addition to the regular Red Cross work in hand by women's organizations. And the money thus raised will be devoted to the erection and organization ot base hospitals; the military and naval mobilization camps; the purchase, transportation an( j storage of supplies; purchase, equipment and manning of hos al ships; the organization of sanitary engineering corps, etc., etc. "Thank God." said the speaker, "for an opportunity to teach Americans to give, even as they have received!" "War means sac rifice of time and money, of flesh and blood!" "Every man. wom an and child in all America is challenged to take a share!" Speak ing of the terrible fight on Vimy Ridge, he said one of the first at the top was a Y. M. C. A. secretary with a pot of hot chocolate— fact that sent him home burning with emulation ; and that he would now have been in Prance but for his wife's representations that his duty lay here. It was with reference to this that some one later moved a vote of thanks to the little woman who kept Mr. Ran dall where he could do the most good, which was unanimously adopt Layeock ; Mur a ed. Upon the conclusion of Mr. Randall's burning remarks, of which but a pale and imperfect idea can be here given, the meeting ad journed to the Commercial club rooms for further organization, counsel ind instruction. Recalled to order by Chairman Brecken ridge, Mr. MacVicar, the local campaign manager, outlined what had already been done and stated that on call in the churches last Sun day, one hundred and five volunteered for campaign work—not for a few hours, but for solid days. Mr. Randall was again called on. this time especially to explain the details of the proposed campaign work—which he emphasized were to be precisely as laid down by the National Committee—"not your way. but theirs." It will not be useful to attempt following this explanation of the printed instructions, which will be in the hands of all workers. The local program is as follows: Beginning Monday, June 18, which is devoted to work by the executive committee, there will be a 6:30 p. m. dinner at the Roger son, to be attended by all members of committees, the team captains and their volunteer workers. Tuesday morning at ten o'clock the general campaign will be open, to be interrupted by luncheon and conference at precisely 12:15. Wdncsday and Thursday, 20th and 21st. the program will be the same; and, speaking of the daily lunches, whether subsidized by the Rogerson or not. recommended very light ones because, he added, "if you give them a feed like we bad tonight, the. sons of guns will lie down on you sure!" Friday. 22nd, is "Capital and Labor Dav;" Saturday, "City Day'" and the following Monday is the last and "Everybody's Day." Mr. Randall A roll call was made of the other counties represented, and full RED CROSS SECRETARY SPEAKS AGAIN SUNDAY ■ ■ Mr. R. E. Randall, of Doise, secretary of the state executive committee in charge of the Emergency Red Cross Cam paign, has consented to return to Twin Falls and bring his message to the people gener ally at a meeting to be held in the high school auditorium at 2:30 p. m. on next Saturday, June 16th. This is a great opportunity to have the facts with regard to this vital matter presented clearly, cogently and eloquent ly.

LONDON, June 14—The abandon ment ot important sections ot the first lines between the Rivers Lys and Sti ver because of the tremendous pres sure of the British advance east of Messiones was announced today by General Haig. This victory emphasizes the domi nating strength of the Yytsaefe-Mes sines positions taken last week. The territory taken from the Germans to day is a further block in the triangle formed by Lys, Ypres and the Lille canal. The position of the enemy in this salient is rendered precarious to an extreme degree because the riv er and the canal hamper rapid oper ations on the part of the German army. It is believed that the evacu ation of the entire triangle is pos sible. LONDON.

It is well to close this hasty and imperfect account of a great meeting—great because of its great purpose—with the announce ment that Mr. R. E.
