THE WAR The Americans, French and Brit ish continue their forward drive. During the past week, the British have done some brilliant work, hav ing pushed across the famous Hind enburg line to a depth of seven miles at one strong point ami taken 10,000 prisoners. Latest reports show that the Amer icans ami French are doing equally as well. Since the beginning of the recent drive, the Allies have taken over 200,000 German and Austrian prison ers and vast war lhaterial. The Boston Red Sox have the first game in the World series—l to 0. They Recognize America Theotherday a well-ineauingfriend came into the office am) asked if we did not think that American newspa pers were having too much to say about America's part in the war. He went on to state that while Americans were no doubt doing wonderful fight ing, we must remember that we are still playing a small part in the great game. He was afraid that our allies, seeing so much üboiit Americans in the newspapers, might conclude that we do not recognize their part in the struggle. In answer to the friend's criticism, we beg to submit a number of head lines from one edition of an English afternoon newspaper, every one of them printed in bold-faced type: “Americans to the fore—Over the Top With a yell." “America in It — Fierce Fighting With the Bayonet.” “Americans’ Rapid Sweep Enemy Unable to get Airplanes Away.’ If the English newspapers thus headline the activities of our boys in the fighting, we fail to see that we here on tills side are immodest in printing what, we do in regqrd to them. Regardless of the numbers involved, tile fact remains that to us here in America the fighting of our own hoys is the most important part of the war —to us. It does not mean that we do not appreciate the lighting of our al lies when we laud the work of our own. 'frtT’s not Because wo love the allios less; it is because we love our own tlie more. —Columbus, Ohio. Dis patch. Death of Mrs. Hugh White Wo regret to announce the passing of Mrs/ Hugh White, which took place at. her home in Meeker on Mon day, Sept. 2nd, after a long illness. Mary White was horn at Columbus, S.
