It is evident from this report th a t E a s t H a m p ton is on the fro n t line trench.

D u ring the last loan, there was work cu t out in one of the Long Is­ land towns a t the w e st end, a scheme fo r the selling of Bonds which secur­ ed rem a rkable results th a t it has been adopted by the N a tional Liberty Loan O rganization, with the endorse­ m e n t of S e c retary McAdoo fo r Na­ tional use during the Third Liberty Loan Cam paign. It is called the H o n o r Flag and H o n o r Roll System and its chief purpose is to arouse a spirit of com p e tition between towns, counties, villages, cities, and states in m aking the best records in sales in Third Liberty Loan Bonds. The insignia and equipm e n t fo r use in connection with the H o n o r System o f an Honor Flag, Honor Roll and H o n o r Card. Every com m u n ity which subscribes the sales quota set fo r i t by its Fed­ eral D istrict Liberty Loan Com m ittee will be aw arded an H o n o r Flag, size 36’ x 54’. In the event t h a t certain com m u n ities increase th e ir quotas by a hundred p e r cent. , o r m o re, as an additional honor, a blue star will be aw a rded to the etaoinshrietaionshd added to the H o n o r F lag for each hundred per cent, increase. E v e ry purchaser of a Third Lib­ erty Loan Bond regardless of the am o u n t, will be entitled to a window card, on which is a reproduction of the H o n o r Flag, and a space fo r -he subscriber’s nam e, which is to be w r itten on the card by the bond salesm an. This card should be plac­ ed in the window of the purchaser’s residence or place of business. In addition to the above in order th a t the public m ay be kept well in­ form e d of the propress being m ade in th e ir respective localities in the sa'.e -if Boi. Is, an H o n o r Roll which als> hen’, a reproduction of the Hon­ or Flag, w ith the following inscrip­ tion. “Help o a r Tow n -w in th e right to . tlds Flag” and ‘‘These are are th e people of OUR TOWN who are helping to win the w a r by invest­ ing in C o v e rm n e n t Bonds of the T h ird Liberty Loan,” will be placed in the Post Office building and the nam e s of all purchasers regardless of the am o u n t, will be placed th e r e ­ on. The am o u n t of the purchase will not appear b u t only the nam e. The g reatest honor th a t can come to any com m u n ity in the country is to have the privelege of flying the Honor F lag and E a s t Ham p ton will surely fly an Honor F lag if each and every one of its LOYAL citizens so fa r as he is able, invests in Bonds of the Third Liberty Loan. The nam e s of a ll towns w inning the H o n o r F lag will be perm a n e n tly rec­ orded under an Honor Flag a t the capital of th e ir states and the re­ sults of a ll s tates will be m ade a m a t­ te r of perm a n e n t record under the Third Liberty Loan H o n o r Flag which is now flying over the Treasury B u ilding in W ashington. B eginning with next week's issue o f the E a s t Ham p ton S tar, there will appear on the first page an Honor Roll. R E D C R O S S W O R K I t was with r e g ret t h a t the chapter was compelled to accept the resigna tion of its chairm an, Mrs. N. H. Day­ ton, who resigned on account of poor health. She has been u n tiring in the discharge of her duties for the Red Cross and the chapter has m ade won­ derful progress under h e r m anage­ m ent. Mrs. S. C. Grimshaw was eiect-d to fill the vacancy and will do her best fo r the chapter with th e ;upport of the officers and com m ittee- :_ charge. K n itted outfits have been given to the follow ing: F rank Pharaoh, Wil- m o t Baker, George Fowler, N o rris Fowler, John Fowler. W illiam Fow­ ler, Leslie Quinn. A box of 2,400 4 by 4 com presses has j u s t been shipped. As some of the clothing fo r Bel­ gian relief was not collected, the packing com m ittee decided to pack another box. The clothing m ay be left in the vestibule of th e Red Cross rooms, Saturday or M onday and the key for the outside door m ay be se­ cured from Miss G race Miller, in Ed­ w a rds’ drug store. If you have no way of getting the clothing to the rooms, Mrs. Culver will collect it, if you will telephone here. The attendance has not been au large on Thursday afternoons during the last few weeks. It is a busy tim e, but is there a woman in town th a t can not spare one afternoon a week to sew fo r Red Cross, when our boys are going to the fro n t, perhaps never to retu r n ? Our country is not in this war for gain, but f o r a righteous cause. A ren’t the women of E a s t Ham p ton willing to do their bit a t home when our boys are sacrificing so much? Village W. S. S.

The big German drive lias come al­ most to a halt except a t the tip of the salient which has been driven into the Allied lines. The fighting, however, 16 going on with great fury. The saljpnt constitutes a threat, but also an op­ portunity to the Allied armies. If the Germans can hold their positions fur­ ther reform ation of the Allied lines may be necessary. On the other hand, It Is conceivable that the counter at­ tacks of the French may be success­ ful In cutting oft a large num b er of Germans, as the British were cut off at Cambrai. Trench geography is still in the making. The struggle Is extending northward and southward. The new battle line Is more than 70 miles lo n g : but, of course, the fighting Is not m ain­ tained with the sam e Intensity all along the front. Just now the Ger­ mans are driving toward Arras, which has seen much hard fighting. In fact, this is bloody ground for the most part, o v er which the battles are raging. There are mounds of field-gray dead upon Orange hill again. The German losses continue heavy. Unquestiona­ bly they are heavier than those of the Allies, but there does not seem to be good reason for putting them as high as three to one. The lategt statem e n t of Marshal Haig, th a t the B ritish have taken ma­ chine guns and prisoners, Is encourag­ ing as It shows that there Is a kick to the counter attacks. These should not be confused with a counter offensive. Counter attacks have limited objec­ tives and are designed to Improve the defensive position of the Allies. It Is possible, of course, that the Allied arm ies may attem p t some big and bold stroke with their reserves. But It Is not likely that any such move will be made until It Is certain that the Ger­ man drive Is well In hand. English aviators seem to have per­ formed brilliant w o rk In harassing the German lines of communication. This •s of enormous importance for the fur­ ther success of the German offensive depends to a large degree on their ability to bring up their guns and sup­ plies. The French hope to give them pause by the counter attack in the region of Noyor. Here the French have cut a notch into the German lines. If the thrust can be driven still deeper a German retreat from the tip of tlie salient might be expected as well as a rich haul of prisoners. Such a blow, however, would not be enough to compel a general German retirem ent unless it was accompanied by an allied offensive all along the line. There is not much evidence as yet that the Allies have such an attack In mind for the present. General Per­ shing Is unofficially reported to have offered all the resources of the Ameri­ can expeditionary force In stopping the drive, so it Is possible that there will soon be some news of America’s part In the big battle. These resources are made possible by Liberty Loans. The Third Loan, due on April 6, Is therefore an im p era­ tive necessity, and no true American will fall to subscribe to ltk Only In this way can ' General Pershing got those supplies that are needed to h«lp block the German fibjectlve.
