THURSDAY, AUGUST 15 1918 PRICE FIVE CENTS CHAUTAUQUA HERE 20-22 The Radcliffe Chautauqua -with its -Wake-Up-Am erica" program will be here three days next week, 20, 21 and 22. The management is endeavoring this year to stir up the people to a higher realization of their duty and a better conception of the reasons why the United States is at war, also to answer some of the many ques tions that are asked. Some - of the questions are: "Do you know what our boys are fighting for?" "Do you knew what the result will be if they wm if they lose?" "Do you know. v.iiai your government expects you to :o in this emergency?" Tnis is what they say relative to themselves to these questions: "To answer your questions, to tiini to you, right where you live, the story of the Great "War as it has be?n :oM to us by the President of the United States, the members of his Caoiiiet. and heads of the. war actlv ni o-:. at conferences recently held with our field and platform represen tatives here in Washington, this is the Eiission of the Radcliffe Chajitauqua in the year 191S." Again they say: 'In this hour when uur Nation is fighting ror its life, the Chautauqua must be the place where every American in your community will come to pledge anew his devotion to Flag and Country; the place where he way learn what his Government wants him to do and how to do it." From all reports that have come to Henclersonville concerning bie per formances and addresses given at Oth er places, the Chautauqua is doig all, and more, that it claims to do and is really and truly "daking up Ameri ca."

LAUREL PARK CAMP GATE SPLENDID PROGRAM FOR WOMAN'S NATL LEAGUE The minstrel show given by the boys of Laurel Park Camp, was an unqualified success, the town hall be ing well filled and exceeding . the ex pectations of the management. Miss- Ruth Smith presided aty the piano as a skilled accompanist for the violin and. cornet -solos, . which elicited" much applause. The performance opened with the i1;ire camp upon the stage. Their drilling, under an unstructor from West Point, was a marvel of efficiency and accuracy. The instructor followed tEls by a meet interesting talk on bayonet harge. After this the fun of the evening began, and the black comedians were uproariously funny and entertaining. A T TX TVmnKfi' emi-rrrlnr -wool 1 i V n0 1 1 TT .Vll . IVUCC113 BlUglUg VI CIO applauded and he reeponaea to sev eral encores. The National League for Woman's Service asked to show their apprecia tion of the generous kindness of the young men, by arranging for them an ice cream fete, but this they positive ly declined, requesting that the cost of such a treat be devoted to patrio tic purposes. ' Miss Barge and Mr. Penny were In defatigable in their efforts to make the occasion a success, and surely liey must have been gratified over the result. The good sum of ninety dollars was realized for helping our boys in France. Rarely has a Hendersonville audi ence enjoyed so .interesting and go amusing a program. The minstrel may be repeated later in Asheville. The Camp is overflowing and has been most of the season. In every way the season has been most suc cessful. The session closes Saturday, Aug. 24th. Next Saturday in the forenoon there will be a game o ball with the Sap phire Camp midgets and in the after noon a double-header will be played with the "all Camp" team against Camp Sapphire's-best team.. This game will start promptly at 3 o'clock. SUBMARINE RAIDS DISCUSSED WASHINGTON. German subma rine raids in American waters were understood to have been discussed on Tuesday at an unusually prolonged session of the cabinet, but if any new plans for combating this menace to helpless craft, lightships and other vessels were formulated by President Wilson and his advisers, the fact was not disclosed. The only report of the activities Of the raiders reaching the navy depart ment during the day told f the des truction of the Norweigan steamer, Sommerstad, yesterday morning 25 miles southeast of Fire Island, N. Y. Captain Hansen and his crew of 30 men were landed by a naval patrol boat which found them at sea in small boats ten hours after the steamer went - down. : : ' . NATO CONFEDERATE VETERANS ; MEET AT. LAUREL The annual reunion of the Confed erate Veterans of Henderson county was held at Laurel Park on . last Thursday, August 8, and the meeting was well represented by. the wearers of the grey. An unusual number was present. Out of the fifty or more liv ing in this county there were thirty five present on this occasion. . The principal address was the one by Dr. E. E. Bomar, pastor of the First Baptist church, which was one of the best that has ever been- deliv ered before the veterans. ' vHe praised them for their valor and commended them for upholding the cause they be lieved in. He reviewed the times 'con nected with the Civil war and paid the highest tribute to those few who remain. - . Dinner was served by the Daugh ters of the Confederacy and it was perfect as to both quality and quan tity. Music and other features con tributed to the program. There were about 40 visitors from the adjoining counties who helped to make the day a success. In tracing the records of the veter ans it was found that there had been 10 or 15 deaths in the county during the past year. BAZAAR AT KANXGA CLUB FOR FATHERLESS CHILDREN (Contributed) The summer guests at Kanuga Club are preparing for an elaborate Carni val Fair to be held in the large audi-1-torium of 'the casino by the lake, on ! Thursday, August 15. The festivi ties v.Till continue all day and evening and are for the benefit of the Father less Children of France. The renowned French speaker, Lieut. Vincent de Wierzbike, of the France High Commission, whose stirring addresses on the WTar topics have so recently thrilled hundreds of people in Asheville, will be the guest of the Carnival Committee at Kanaga, of which Mrs. L. K. Thompson of Memphis Tenn;,' isivChainnanv:, Mrki ! R.; Goodwyn Rhett, of Charleston, S . C . , vice-chairman ; Mrs . Buckner Chipley, of New Orleans, treasurer, and Mrs. W. A. Gillican. also of New Orleans, is secretary. Mr. and Mrs Edwin Parsons, of Charleston and Flat Rock, are co-operating Trittt the Kanuga committee. The Carnival Fair will have hun dreds of unique articles for sale at booths contributed by Southerners summering at the many resorts In this section. There will be a talk for Mountain Industries and the toy industry at Tryon. There will be a large number of real French toys and novelties straight from France, the work of the wounded soldiers and gentlewomen of France made desti tute by this war. The Carnival committee urge that all who possibly can, come to fhe en tertainment and fair which offers so much of local and foreign interest and that always the object for which it is being held, be kept in mind and heart namely the promotion of friendly personal relations between the French people themselves and our own citizens. The committe offers as its most im portant feature, the privilege of be coming god-parents to Fatherless French children living in their homes with their mothers for the pledge of support at the rate of ten cents a day $36.50 a year per child. Names and addresses of French children who need the support of this small sum, to insure their normal development in home surroundings will be assigned at the Carnival, to whomsoever pledg es $36.50 a year or a period of one or two years. This sum should be paid in full or, if satisfactory guarantee of its full payment be given, the name of a child may be assigned for $9.50 (the first quarter) and the remaining $27.00 be paid quarterly $9.00 or monthly $3.00. The important feature of this work is that it is making personal friends of the citizens of the two countries besides the great benefit to the French women and children in making it possible for them to remain together and of sustaining the morale of the civil population, now almost entirely composed of women and children. WHY SUGAR IS SHORT There is a greater shortage of both the sugar-cane and sugar-beet crops than was expected in the early part of the season.- At no time since .the be ginning of the war has there been a normal output of sugar because of the devastation of foreign sugar-beet fields. There has been a serious loss bf sugar at sea due to the submarine warfare. The Government requires a generous supply to meet the needs of the men in the service. ,v ; - PARK : 1 CAROLINA, ASSOCIATION: IN SESSION HERE The Carolina Association, which embraces ttiA nanticf ' ov. ; ;HendfirRrtn Sntr iia : Sion at Valley Hill church, last wwv The program included quite a num ber of subjects in which .the denomin ation is .vitally f interested and some able discussions were heard by the home ministres and laymen in addi tion to some noted visitors repre senting denominational ' interests.

A The submarine came within half a fnile of shore, according to the report reaching the navy department. The Diamond Shoal light station is one of the most famous guides to nav igation in the world and has been the subject of many a story in verse and prose. Such vessels usually are man ned by greybeards and are of such as tQ be utterly helpless in the face of an enemy attack.

Trouble has bean ex perienced in getting the .parts from the factory. necessary J PICKED OUT THE LEADER We may get a pleasurable idea of the effieiency of the United States iroops in action from the fact that at Cantigny, where they took the town and many prisoners several German soldiers were so impressed by the demonstration that they tried to sur render to an American newspaper correspondent, probably because, from his detached appearance, they concluded he was in command there abouts.

HIGH PRAISE FOB : ?R nflnHF RBilFT The Radcliffe Chautauqua, which will be in Hendersonvilie August 20, 21, ' 22, comes with high - praise from the sections where, it has been and. has given its program. Last week the Chautauqua was cin Rutherford and the Rutherford Sun contains this ar ticle of praise: The Radcliffe Chautauqua has come and gone, but its influence and im pression will never go. ; The program this year is the best that has ever visited this part of the State. It is uxtiivyiv program ana 'its name hardly does it credit. It would be a very stupid person that could hear all the speeches, lectures, musical selec tions and other entertaining features and then not be thrilled with a sense of pride for his country. We regret that we do not have time and - space to give our readers a detailed account of the program. Dr. Henry Clark on "Wake Up Am erica," and 'The Call of Democracy" was very good. He showed how that our country was . not awake to the 1- dangers of German militarism and Germany's plans to rule us. He said there were 558 newspapers printed in German in this country when war was declared. Miss Elizabeth Cook demon-1 strated to the audienee a sal mon loaf, tomato sauce and gave In- struetions on sugar substitutes.

It's worth even the busiest man's time and money. Any one of the lectures or entertainments was worth the price of a season ticket.
