An immediate response to the German submarines off the coast is a big rush of volunteers to the naval re cruiting stations. The trouble with a plea to the Hun to spare a sacred edifice is that he doesn't understand human speech un los '. is accented by a bomb. Those of you who have missed the Chautauqua thus far, will never know just wha you have' missed so take it from us and see the remainder of the program. When Hank Ford's killers begin to get in their work Ciermnn tub skippers will appreciate what a fine chance was neglected in not getting that early peace ship. There is a complaint in the cloak and suit trade of a lack of "perfect 36" n'oels. That is a physipue well adapted for war work, and the fact may explain the de- No accounts of the U-boat raid on the American coast will answer, those pending questions in the Reich stag of how so many American troops happen to be land ing in France. Senator LaFollett's lawyer says that the senator" is loyal at heart. But just why a pubic man should allow his tongue to misrepresent his heart so glaringly the law yer does not explain. Even the German army is now to have three meat less days a week. When the eatless days for the Ger mans arrive,, perhaps we shall have peace. And they seem to be on the way. . ' : : y London now has a movement for daylight saving putting the clock ahead another hour. If this thing keeps up we may conclude to save both night and day light and not go to bed at all. Our citizens should not overlook the fact that next Saturday is the date for the total eclipse of the Sun. This is an occurence that will not possibly happen again in the life time of many of our citizens. When the Captain of a U-boat says he has been here two months, it is a confession, probably untrue, of fail ure. If another says he has supplies for a month and intends to stay so long, we need not believe him. Gen. Pershing says the Americans had no war stores at Fere-en-Tardenois. If the French had any the Ger man 'claim of the capture of a Franco-American depot there may present the high average of 50 per cent, truth. . Tfie arbitration treaty between the United States and Great Britain has been renewed for another five years. There is the difference in this case that neither of the fifgh contracting parties has ever been wont to regard a treaty as a scrap of paper. : Another nation takes its place in battle-line today; it is Poland. The Polish Legion of 15,000 men, main ly recruited in "the United States, follows in France the white-pa.fle fl-:g. Poland's hope of resurrection is in allied success. She will not abandon hope. We receive war, bulletins every afternoon after the Sun has gone to press. Often times we get interesting news in this way for our citizens that does not appear in the afternoon edition. These bulletins are posted on Main street immediately after they are received for the benefit of our people. "INTIMIDATION" OF AMERICA. American troops are now engaged in force against the enemy along the Marne. Battles have been fought, the meager details of which indicate that the Americans have revealed their characteristic dash and staying pow er. All along the front, wherever Americans" are mov ing forward, there is intense eagerness to get into hc fight. The situation at points where the Yankees have appeared in force has been stabilized, according to French reports. Of course the entire American force In France is un equal to the task of holding back the Germans or any single front. The enemy outnumbers the allies every where. It seemed that Lloyd George had exaggerated when he said that all the American force was only one fifth of what Germany had shifted from the Russian front, but perhaps he was right. ,The number of German troops is not exactly known, but is quite evident from the number of divisions employed in the last three drives that Germany has at least 1,200,000 men on the firing line or ready to step forward, besides a reserve almost as large. The 550,000 German young men coming into the service this year are supposed to be ready for action. It is also reported that the situation in Roumania and Ukrainia is such as to permit Germany to transfer anoth er large body of troops to the west. Against this present superiority is the unlimited sup ply of man power from America, flowing in a rapidly increasing stream to France. If the enemy ( could cut off that stream he would probably be able to defeat the French and British armies. Uuless he can cut it off he is doomed to defeat in the field and collapse at home. Finding that France and England can wage defen sive war indefinitely while America's forces are assem bling, and that the old submarine tactice did not inter fere with the transport of American troops, Germany has undertaken the preposterously hopeless task of sending submarines 3,000 miles from base to prey upon and "in timidate" Americans and ' American shipping. "Intim idate!" What a word to describe the feeling which stirs America when she sees German submarines slaving ves sels at the mouth of New York! It is a common saying in Englad that Kitchener and Count Zeppelin created the British army. Whenever re cruiting lagged, Zeppelin made an air raid over London, and the recruiting offices were overflowing with men who were anxious to risk thejr lives for one shot at a German. Every attempt by the boche to ntimidate En gland and France has increased the determination of those nations to fight to victory. There is a yellow streak in the German by which he knows that if certain acts are committed against him he will turn coward. He assumes that the same acts com- mited against others will make cowards of them. This is his theory of f rightfulness, which includes the notion that perpetual harrying of the nerves of the females will cause a breakdown and a demand for peace by surren der to Germany. The German also counts upon the pesr simism and feebleness of a considerable portion of the male population, and he hopes by committing atrocious acts to inspire in this class a defeatism that will work to ward a coward peace. This policy, carried out against America and Ameri cans, will hasten victory for the allies as nothing else could. If the United States is still only half awake to the actuality of this war, the direct application of Hun frightfulness to Americans on sea and land will rouse it fro its torpor. ' It is not because America is endangered by the mos quito stings of the prowling submarines that this nation should redouble its energies and rush its forces to France. It is because France and Britain are holding on with tired men who are continually confronted with superior numbers of fresh enemies. These allies are fighting for the defense of America as truly as if the fighting were at New York or Washington. Not an effort that can possibly be made should be neglected or delayed in hur rying aid to the allied heroes. No American in authority has a right to sleep until his day has been packed full of effort. Every man, in uniform and' out, who is charged with responsibility for any part of the government's work, should regard that part as speciallly assigned to him by the American people as a sacred trust, carrying with it responsibility for the lives of men and the safety of ihe republic. Washington Post. Morristown is telling her citizens that she expects to send five hundrend of her good people to Greeneville on next Friday, June 14th. This is the day for the unveil ; t A.V. t j. a. x i fi . . uijj ox me monument 10 me state of Franklin. There should be a good attendance at these exercises from all over Greene county, and throughout East Tennessee. We will no doubt have many visitors here from other towns and cities to entertain. Let Greeneville arrant to give these visitors a hearty welcome. With our machine operator unable to work the Dai ly Sun has, been published under extreme difficulties the past week, and we are frank to admit it has not come up to what we desire to make it With the installation of an additional type setting machine soon, we hope to be in a position to serve our patrons much better, fur nishing more interesting reading matter each day, and making the Daily Sun larger. Under the circumstances we hope that the patrons of the Daily Sun will bear with us in our endeavor to get the paper out each day on schedule time. If we should be a few hours late with this no, we take it that you will understand the rca son why, and will excuse us. THE MOTHERS Motherhood means more today than ever before tas expressed by Mirandy, a colored lady of Marion, who says: "De wah done give us mothers a boost' and when I goes 'bout wid my service flag wid a star on hit pinned on mah breast, you better believe dat I casts a destempt ious look at dem women whut ain't got nothin' but a dog license to hang on deirs. Yessum, I guess dere ain't nobody , else in de worl' dat's as proud and humble, , an' as sad an' glad, as we mothers is now. Hit's we moth ers dats done raised de infantry an' dat's why we got a right to climb up de pedestal an' give 'three cheers for Mother's Day dis yeah, becaze if dere 'hadn't been no mothers whar would we all be now. I jes axes you dat. Yassum, behind de man wid'de gun was de mother be hind the preambulator fust." Two hundred and sixty- seven young men were regis tered here yesterday. This represented the young men of Greene county who had become 21 since the last reg istration. These boys will be examined. soon and placed in the different classes. We wish to state, however, for the benefit of the young men, their parents and friends, that they will be placed at the bottom of the list in the different classes in which they may come. Those reg istering prior to them will be called to service first. Vry few parents have to worry anout their children working too hard. ; ROUTE THIRTEEN He Rev. Smith preached one ofthe finestsermons at St. James shurch it has been our privilege to hear for some time.- All of his sermons are fine but we especially not the one last Sunady on "Love," Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Neas, of Caney Branch, Messrs. Dan Cutshall and So lan Neas, attended preaching at Pine Grove last Sunday. Mrs. F. A. Hawk was summoned io the bedside of her aged father, Mr. Joe Bible, near Midway, last week. Quite a number attended the Na tional Decoration at Mt. Pleasant the 30th. All reported a nice time. Miss" Dessie Ottinger dined with Miss Sallie Kate Neas last Sunday. Miss Katie Lee Neas and Miss Ruth Lister, of Greeneville, called on Miss Lillie Critselous Saturday night and attended preaching at St. James church Sunday. Sunday school was largely attend ed at Caney Branch last Sunday. i Mr. Shade Henry, of Midway spent Saturday night and Sunday at the home of W. A. Timmons. Mrs. John Johnson and children, who have been visiting her mother, Mrs. John Ellenburg, for the past 30 days, left yesterday for her home in Kentucky. Her mother accompanied her as far as Knoxville. Farmers were very glad to see such a refreshing rain falling as fell today. It was more than needed throughout this community. Messrs. Dunk and Felix Neas had the misfortune of losing a nice calf each last week with "Black Leg." Mr. Connie Rader, of St James has acceuted a position at Midway. I have been wondering what has become of our correspondent "Red Rose." Hope she will write again. There were three of the boys from this place among the ninety-three who left for Camp Pike last Saturday May ,25th. We would ask that God's guiding hand protect them until their return. It seemed that all of the boys were anxious and willing to go, in order that they might do their best for their country. If we who are left back here will doour part, we need not fear, for the soldiers will do theirs. So I hope God in his plenti o?as njercy will keep them safe for re turning. Oh, the homes and fond ties that have been broken, that free dom may reign forever! We trust that the chords now broken, will vi brate once more. ,1 OLD BLUE EYES. ROUTE ELEVEN Several boys at Camp Jack3on have asked me to write from this place, as they wanted news from home. So, if the editor will accept news, I shall be glad to write as of ten as possible. Private Taylcr Susong is at home ori a furlough. Everybody is glad to see him looking so well. ' River Hill C. E. has a service flag of eight stars. Two of the boys are in France, while six remain over here preparing to go. ' Mrs. F. C. Willhoit and daughter, Beatrice, spent a part of last Mom'ay soliciting for the Red Cross. Mrs, Dug Renner is in' better health than I have seen her for some time, and shevJseems glad she has a ton fighting for Uncle Sam. People are fast awakening to the realization that they must be patri otic and stand behind the boys if they expect them to wirt; and I am sure nothing pleases the sons of America more than to know home folks are proud of them, and that the home fires shall be kept burning till they come home. There will be an ice cream supper at Link's school house Saturday. May 8th, beginning at 4 or five o'clock. Proceeds will go to the Red Cross. The expenses are being paid by the good neighbors, so every penny will be turned in to the Red Cross. Ev erybody please come,' and" welcome. Miss Beatrice Willhoit will have charge of the affair, and will do her utmost to make you feel at home, so please come arid make it a success and help swat the Kaiser. ' SLIM.

" As contemptible as this is, there are a few people whose conception of vigl t and justice is on such a low plane that they will not give to the work of the Y. M. C.

Some really refuse to loan their money to the government and get a premium interest on the principal. When the wor is ended they will occupy the same place the man did who tried to impose himself on the wedding feast without wearing the wedding garment. If this paragraph catches the eye of any we are talking about we hope you read the story in your Bible about this fraud and then conclude to buy War Savings Stamps and thus try to restore yourself to re spectable citizenship. v AUTOMOBILE OWNERS Notice is hereby given to all own ers of automobiles and auto trucks, who have not had their , machines reg istered, that same must be registered at once or distress warrants will be issued as directed by law for the col lection of this tax.

PAY THE LITTLE BOYS. It is necessary that subscribers in the city pay the little carrier boys either by the week or month. The lit tle fellows have to collect from their subscribers before they can get their money. So dont put them off it is too much trouble to have to run af ter such a small amount. Arrange to pay them regularly every week and they will appreciate it and it will doubtless encourage them to be more unctual with your paper every after noon. , The divorce court frequently en ables a man and wife to live happy ever after. Health About Gone Many thousands of women suffering from womanly trouble, have been benefited by the use of Cardul, the woman's tonic, according to letters we receive, similar to this one from Mrs. Z.V.Spell. ofHayne.N.C. "I could! not stand on my feet, and Just suffered terribly,'" she says. "As my suf fering was so great, and he had tried other reme dies, Dr. had us get Cardul. . I began improving, and It cured me. I know, and my doctor knows, what Car dul did for me, for my nerves and health were bout gone." TAKE uQ The Woman's Tonic She writes further: 4,I , kI am In Rnlndid health . . '" can do my work.
