Aside from the movement of the

significant Incidents of the tremendoui

Germans have extended their attack to

GERMAN AIRMEN BOMB
BIG CANADTAN HOSPITAL
German airmen have bombed another
hospital—this time a Canadian Insti
tution —and exacted a considerable toll
of casualties. Among those killed by
the explosion of flames was an Amer
ican medical officer who was admin
istering an anaesthetic to a British
officer in the operating room when
that part of the hospital was demolish
ed. The raid occurred at 12:30 o'clock
in the morning.
The hospital attacked yraa a large
one. It had been in since
the early day of the wftr and was
marked by huge Red Cross signs. The
German airmen, working partly by
the light of the moon, dropped four
bombs near the hospital and then not
apparently able to see exactly where
they were hitting, lighted a brilliant

As the place was lighted up by the

wing of the hospital. In the wing
there were tlire floors, on tho bot

room. On the story above were the
office and patients' room and above
them were members of the hospital
personnel. Part of the wing was de

many unfortunate persons were killed
and wounded when the building col

THE SLACKER *
Throughout North Carolina and the nation sentiment
toward the slacker is crystalizing and the fine finger of
scorn and contempt is searching him out.
There are several varieties of slackers. Here are some
The service Blacker— the man who should be in the
ranks and is not.
The labor slacker—the man who-is_able to work and
The food slacker —the male or female hog who refuses
to readjust their diet so as to meet the demands of our
Allies for those foodstuffs which may be exported.
The financial slacker— the individual who can but does
not buy Liberty bonds and War Savings Stamps.
Slacking at home means more lilood spilled by true blue
American boys in France.
Slacking in America means starvation for innocent
women and children in England, France and Italy.
Slacking at home is a menace to the success of the
American, British and French arms in France.
THE SLACKER'S REWARD
The intelligent, observant, patriotic people of America
will not forgive slacking.
The slacker is a marked man. Not only during the
war, but as the war goes on and the casualty lists come
in he will be more and more scorned and hated by decent

(From Committee on Public Information.)
Washington.—A committee on public
Information representative In London
There are no better sportsmen In the
world than the allied airmen, and
American aviators now fighting In Eu
rope always play a fair game, as they
learn It from the allies. F. I*. Ma
goun, a former Harvard student, now
a member of the Royal air force, re
cently wounded, tells how the lives of
German observers escaping from bal
loons have been spared.
"We caught three Hun balloons
above the allied grounds In a mist,
which prevented their gunners seeing
us," said he. "It was a cinch. You
should have seen them hustle out their
parachutes and abandon the balloons.
As they cauie falling down through
the air we circled about closely but, of
course, didn't oj>yn lire, as that's
against the rules of the game. As
soon as they touched ground they took
cover like rabbits."
Magoun Is the only American In his
squadron, liuvlng Joined In February of
last year. He has bagged five German
planes. While carrying bombs for low
attack In the recent offensive ho re
ceived a bullet through his left arm,
but managed to return to his own
lines. MugoUn tells of a companion
In his squadron who had one of the
luckiest escapes during the war. He
was put out of action 1,000 feet In the
air when a bullet perforated his gaso
line tank. He was rendered uncon
scious by the fumes and his machine
took a nose dive to earth, but he es
caped without a scratch.
4r»ectlon of the Royal sir force op
erating In the Ypres salient has lost
Its only American member, who hud
been with the squadron only ten days
when he went on a bombing raid at
low elevation. He was hit by a ma
chine-gun bullet and his plane fell In
flames. He was taken prisoner.
The efforts of newspapers to pro
mote good feeling between the people
of England and the thousands of Amer
icans received official backing when
Kir Randolf Baker, member of parlia
ment, oflftred to take charge of the
