THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION. 225 West S9th Street.' New York City, is ourjsolo and exclusive Foreign Advertising Agent. "Long May It Wave." As the American army increases in size the chance, for a German victory decreases. H w. s. s. Wonder what the Kaiser thinks of "thatj contemptible little American army" by now? W. S. S. "On to Berlin," is the battle cry oi the allies, and here's hoping nothing will stop them until they enter that accursed city. y g "Our Flag is Still There," and wav ing in all her glory in the front ranks of the allies, and to the dread and fear of the unholy Hun who sees it. w. s. The good work of the allies goes on in France, and up to the hour oi going to press allied armies are still advancing. The resistance of the Germans is stiffening somewhat, but thev are still retreating. W. S. S. The American people have put their trust in the Lord, and He wil not ' deny them victory. "Trust ir i i i i i j i-.ora ana Keep your powuer ury i: still as true today as when utteret during the revolutionary days. w. s. s. A German prisoner captured by th American troops when asked wha the. Germans thought of the Ameri cans said they hadiieard there werf a ' million Americans on the fighting line, but from the way in which thej fought they thought there were full ten millions of them. w. s. s. "While we regret his loss yet his mother and I are glad that he had his chance to show what was in him.' Such is the way in which Theodore Roosevelt and his wife look upon th( loss of their baby, Quentin. Spokei like the true and brave America parents that they are. Their word; should be studied by the parents o all who have children "over 4herer and may we all show the same cour age if compelled to undergo the same trial. w. s. s. Thursday's papers tell us that no a single American army officer is in volved in the recent rain coat scandal As Rev. Griffith remarked in his tall to the departing soldiers at Tryon Wednesday, "The American army i the cleanest lot of fellows under th sun." Commanded by that grat re liglous soldier and humanitarian Pershing backed by the greates Christian nation, on earth, how can ii be otherwise? w. s. s One of the prettiest tributes W( have ever read was the editorial ir the Asheville Citizen a few days ago touching upon the death of Quentin Roosevelt. However we may fail tc agree with Theodore Roosevelt, yet none can doubt his Americanism or loyalty. With four sons in the ser vice and himself a bitterly disap pointed man because he could not go, it stands to reason that his love for America is genuine. w. s. s The marksmanshirj of the Ameri can troops has been the wonder of the lighting, and the British and French look upon their workinamaze ment, while the Germans look upon their work in dread. The idea of 'a soldier beincr able to km an object no larger than a man at a instance ot l,UUU yards seems to be unDelieveable to the British -and trench, as well as -the Germans That is no great feat for boys who have been trained to shoot squirrels in the eyes with an old-fashioned long-barreled rifle. w. s. s. To Col. Theodors Roosevelt Tkr sympathy "of the entire American na tion goes out to you and your noble wife in this, your time of sadness and bereavement. Those who do not un derstand you and do not agree with you have nothing but the deepest re gret and words of sympathy, while those -who do know and admire you, think more of you today than ever before. To them your action and words were nothing more than were expected. May God in His wisdom, help you and your noble heroic wife sto bear up under your burden know ing that He does everything for the ANAPPEA L TO ALL PATRIOTIGWOMEN Mrs. Thomas J. Preston, Jr., (Formerly Mrs. Grover Cleve land) Urges' Women of Nation to Stand Firm. MWe can win if America can be held steadfast and unswerving, and the wb 'men of America can hold her stead , fast. Against all 3 i-Amnfnfinno f nfm promise the women of America should stand firm and united," says Mrs. Thomas J. Preston, Jr. (formerly Mrs. Grover Cleveland), in a message to the women of America, made public through the Na tional Security League. Mrs, Preston 18 Mrs. T.J. Piston, J r.Uy League WQrk She was the first woman to become a member of the League's National Ex ecutive Committee, and Is secretary of the League's Committee on Patriotism Through Education. Mrs. Preston's message to the wo men of the country reads in full: "Proclaim Liberty." "'Proclaim Liberty throughout ALL THE LAND unto all the inhabitants thereof.' "These words were written about 1490 years before Christ, as part of the Law of Holiness in the Book of Leviticus. Our fathers Inscribed them upon the Liberty Bell which called our mighty nation into life. "Today 'all the inhabitants' enjoy liberty, the Jew and the Gentile, the rich and the poor, the native and the alien-born, the weak and the strong. The old Liberty Bell is silent, for its voice has been heard 'throughout all the land.' "But Liberty is not safe. It is men aced along the battle fronts of many nations, our own among them, and America requires a new motto for her old Bell: 'Proclaim liberty through out ALL LANDS unto all the inhab itants thereof.' UntU Hberty Is safe in all lands, it can not be safe in our wn. Hence the task to which Amer ica has reverently and unselfishly ded icated herself. "Make Motto Real." "The Fathers of this Republic, men of many races, with a common love of liberty, wrought into law our ancient motto, thus giving liberty a chance to enlighten the world. "Today we, their descendents, are called upon to make real the new motto, and thus to give liberty the undisputed right to bless the world. "This can be done but only after heroic struggle and self-sacrifice. A premature peace would mean failure. ItSvould be only less disastrous than complete defeat. Against all tempta tions to compromise the women of America should stand firm and united. 'Peace and Safety." "Victory means peace and safety for our children; defeat means hu miliation and practical servitude .for them; while a negotiated peace, with the military machine of Prussia un broken, means that everything in their lives must be subordinated to the task of preparing for another .war with Germany. We can wm now if Amer ica can be held steadfast and un swerving, and the women of America can hold her steadfast." QUOTAS FIXED FOR FALLY.

The writer is a pa-, rent and a doctor and he recently found it necessary to call on the public, school principal to learn why no re cesses were given the children no outdoor recesses. On the day of this particular visit the weather was ideal, though a bit cold. But the ground was still damp from previous rains. t was Immediately afteY noon inter mission, and all the school children had played about the yard in the noon hour while waiting for the bell to ring. Thfi nrineinal of the school in Ques tion is a tvnical mollycoddle. Alwavi has some slight cough or "cold" and always nursing it. He was a bit flab bergasted at the suddenness and ve hemence of our inquiry. He finally ex plained that there had been no re cesses for some weeks back because of bad weather. "Had we allowed a recess this forenoon, for instance, many of the children would have got. ton their feet wet in the yard and probably their parents would have complained to, us about it." The same parents, you see, would have no pos sible objection to the children getting their feet wet at the noon hour. This was carefully pointed out to the prin cipal. He was also advised that the school board rules called for outdoor recess morning and afternoon when the weather was suitable, and that1 un less this recess was regularly given It would be our painful duty to bring a complaint against the principal, in the Interest of the health of the children. No recesses were given for another WAR In response to the Government's ca for specially trained men the University is offering, in addition to its regular courses in ACADEMIC, CIVIL CHEMICAL.

So-called "colds," sore throat, toftsilitis. adenoids, enlarged tonsils, aslweli as anemia, nervousness, bed witting, chorea (St. Vitus' dance), and mny other conditions of school chil dren are certainly invited by prolong ed .confinement in the warm atmos phere and the strict discipline of the average Schoolroom. It is up to the parents to see that a regular fifteen minutes of recreation, exercise and re lease from restraint so hard for the child's naturally active nervous sys- .1 are lonncommg in every scjuui, ! anil to protest promptly and vigorous- jly when an antediluvian teacher es- s&ifs to repeal this ancient, wife and i4cfispensable provision for the physi cal welfare of the child.
