- Y. M. C. A. Work.
A special meeting was held at the
First Christian Church last Sunday
night. Mr. Massey, -secretary of the
State Y. M. C A., addressed the au
dience -on the subject of war work.
The Triangle, or that branch of the
M. C. A. which is associated alto
gether with the support of the En
tente Allies in the great war, is an
ally principally in the strengthening
of the morale of the army.' This
work is probably one of the greatest
assets in the present crisis. While
Germany is holding lier men with
the lash, our armies are being held
with the co-operation and encourage
ment of the Christian people of this
and the allied peoples. For instance,
as Mr. Massey says, the illiterate sol
dier has somebody to write for him
letter home, and from this time oh
the writer is a friend who inspires
the soldier witha true knowledge of
the war and the patriotism and cour
age of an enlightened and loyal citi
zen. This is a single one of the de
tails of the work of the Triangle
Its duties are manifold and equally
important.
'i ne meeting was to interest our
people in the work of enlisting men
capable of filling the responsible
positions of secretaries for overseas.
the Retail Merchants of Union
City.
The Committee on Commercial
Economy, of the Council of National
Defense, respectfully requests thit
every retail merchant in Union; City
adopt the Government's recommenda
tions relative to the delivery of mer
chandise, to-wit:
1. Restrict deliveries to one trip
a day over each route.
2. Eliminate entirely special de
f liveries.
. 3. Organize co-operative delivery
systems wherever possible.
These recommendations arc made
by the Government for the purpose
of eliminating unnecessary work,
thereby releasing additional man
power for more essential occupation.
In speaking of man-power we not
only include the driver, but the sav
ing of every item which enters into
the delivery transaction, Buch as
wear and tear on wagon or truck,
feed, gasoline, etc. ... ' .
We present these recommenda
tions to the retail merchants of Un
ion City and ask them to notify their
customers that on and after August
5, only one delivery a day over each
route will be made. By this we mean
that the customers must be classified
into routes and notified that after
August 5 the delivery wagon will
cover their particular route at a cer
tain time of the day,, and that their
orders must, be received before the
wagon, leaves the store.
We ask the retail merchants of
Have Your Card.
Police and other law officers of
the State are to begin at once a
drive to round up all the slackers.
Chief JBarthell intends to find every
slacker in Nashville at once, and has
asked Major Rutledge Smith to in
struct registrants- as to their duty.
EVery man must have on his per
son at all times his classification
card. Registrants will be asked to
stow their cards at any moment and
at every corner
The man who has registered and
who has his card on his person will
present it when the officers ask for
it, and he will be glad to do so as a
mcanS ot aiding the police in lo
eating those who are attempting to
dodge service. The"-Blacker will be
caught, and the man who has reg
istered will not be inconvenienced.
Yet he must have his card, so that
the police may not be hampered In
their work of rounding up the slack
ers
If a registrant has by any acci
dent lost his card, it is hio duty to
at once apply to his local board for
a statement to the effect that he has
been classified. Duplicate cards can
not be issued, but a statement from
the Board, duly signed and authen
ticated, will be sufficient to protect
registrants whose cards have been
lost.
The drive against the slacker is to
be begun at once in all towns and
cities in Tennessee, and you may ex
pect at any time to be called upon to
show your card. Have it ready at
all times, and avoid probable arrest

What We Fight For.
The high aims of America- and her
allies are well expressed in President
Wilson's greetings to France on Bas-
tile day'
"As France celebrated our Fourth
of July, so do we celebrate her Four
teenth, keenly conscious of a com
radeship of arms and of purpose of
which we)are deeply proud. The sea
seems very narrow to-day, France is
so close neighbor to our' hearts. The
war is being fought to save ourselves
from intolerable thing3, but it is
also being fought to save mankind.
We extend our hands to each other,
to the great peoples with whom we
are associated; and to the peoples
everywhere who love right and prize
justice as a thing beyond price, and
consecrate ourselves once more to
the noble enterprise of peace and Jus
tice, realizing the great conceptions
that have lifted. France and America
high among the free peoples of the
world. The French flag flies to-day
from the' staff of the White -House,
and America la happy to do honor to
that flag."'
Union City to adopt this delivery sys- in event a man is unable to present
his card he will be arrested and
taken to police station, where he will
bo held for Government authorities
The man who has a classification
"ard in his pocket is proud of having
it,, and will not hesitato to present
COMMERCIAL it when called upon by the police.
There need be no surprise at being
asked for your card several times a
day, for the fact that one officer has
seen the registrant's card is no indl
cation that all know ho is properly
registered. So when called on for
your card, no matter how frequently
this demand may be made, hand it
out cheerfully, and help the officers
to find the men for whom they are
searching the slackers. They do
not want you if you have your, cre
dentials; they simply want to know
who has such credentials.
The slacker's day of grace i3 near
ing Its end. He will have to do serv
ice tor his country, as well as be
singled out as a man willing to
dodge his duty when other young
men are freely offering their lives in
the cause.
Major Smith i3 determined that no
slacker shall escape, and officers of
the law are equally determined to
round up such people.
near in mind that loss of a card
can be easily remedied by securing
a statement from vour bnr.rd.

colliery to remain away from work
on the day of a funeral of any fellow

lowing this custom hereafter, a com
mittee of six will be appointed to
attend the funeral, the company to
pay the day's wages of the six men
