Beleaguered Yanks Rescued by British BRITISH HEADQUARTERS IN FRANCE, . Oct 2. The contingent of Americans who had been holding out since Sunday in a far advanced position between Cambrai and St Quentin against greatly superior en emy numbers have been rescued. In our attacks around Venduiel yesterday we were able to fight through and relieve this party, num bered some hundreds, who, having taken up their position Sunday night were surrounded by the Germans early Monday. .Notwithstanding that they were opposed by such superior numbers and only possessed the ammunition and rations which they themselves were carrying, the Americans made a magnificent resistance and the ground was strewn with German dead. T ETTERS from our boys in the trenches and from the women in canteen and other war work, alL bring to us the same mes sage SEND US NEWS FROM HOME. World news is all right," but OUR BOYS want NEWS OF THIS TOWN. They want , the home newspaper. Publishers are prevented from sending their papers free to anyone, even boys in the service. Consequently a national movement has been started by Col. William Boyce Thompson of New York, who is acting as President of the Home Paper Service of America to give the boys what they are calling for. Every community is joining the movement. Let ua see that our boys are not forgotten. Send to the publisher of this newspaper whatever amount of money you can 5 cents or $50.00. We will publish a list each week of those contributing, and the amounts contributed. Every cent received will be used to send v this paper to our boys at the front. If at the end of the war, there is any surplus, it will be turned over to the local Red Cross Committee. There is no profit in this to the publisher even in normal times, subscriptions are not sold at a profit. With war prices prevailing, and the high rate of postage on papers sent to France, our cost will scarcely be covered by our full subscription price.
