The next eclipse will be the eclipse o f the Kaiser. And it will be total throughout the w orld.— Patchogue Advance. Congressman Hicks has sent to all the public schools in the district a large poster flag upon which is de­ picted the flag in color and quotations from his address on the flag delivered in Congress. He will mail copies to anyone upon request. W h at will be the effect o f the pro­ posed Federal tax on dogs? If the plan o f assessing $2.50 Federal tax on every dog in the United States is carried out, we think it is safe to say that the saying, “ e v e ry dog has his day,” will com e true, in a great many (eases, at least. W e congratulate Brother Kahler editor o f The' G reenport Times, on his progressiveness. He has de­ cided^ to install a new Linotype in his already up-to-date printing estab­ lishment. W e are positive that Broth­ er Kahler will n o t 'r e g r e t this step, a step which we consider to be in the right direction. Have you noticed waste paper cans about the street? They have just been repainted. This is another one o f the public improvem ents to be credited to the Ladies Village Im­ provem ent Society. These cans are regularly emptied and the waste dis­ posed of, by a hired man. W e are sure that these cans are responsible fo r the cleanliness o f our thorough­ fares. ___________________ A recovery o f $303.70 was made last month from the violators o f the conservation laws. There were twen­ ty-tw o cases reported, and the same num b er o f convictions — One f o r tak­ ing trout in closed season, seven for taking fish illegally, two fo r taking black bass in closed season, three for attem p ting to take wild geese, one fo r hunting law violation, one for possessing deer in closed season, two fo r fishing on posted lands, fo u r fo r angling, non resident w ithout license. The people o f East Hampton must begin to make preparations fo r the Fourth Liberty Loan, which, it is un­ derstood, will be floated this O c to­ ber. This was indicated in an an­ nouncem ent by Secretary M cAdoo, published this week, that in prepar­ ation fo r the Fourth Liberty Loan about $6,000,000,000 in certificates o f indebtedness will be issued within the next fou r months. The certifi­ cates will bear 4 % per cent, and will have varying maturity periods, none exceeding fo u r months. N EIGHBORHOOD NOTES The N e ighborhood Association has engaged Miss Eleanor M u lford, a graduate o f the Sargent school, to supervise the activities on the playground for a part o f each day during the summer. Miss M u lford will be on the playground every m orn­ ing from nine to twelve, and on Tues­ day and Thursday evenings from sev­ en to nine. The evening arrange­ ment is an effort to make provision for tennis and other sports during hours which can be utilized by the young people who are at work during the day. A n y o n e who is disposed to add to the depleted tennis equipm ent o f the playground by contributing racquettes, or balls, may send them to the playground during the hours when Miss M u lford is on duty, or they may be left with Paul Reuter- 1 shan. It is hoped that such contribu­ tions will be made prom ptly, as they J w ill relieve the association’s expen- ] diture. The directors wish to express their appreciation o f the excellent services , o f Mrs. A lfred Brown, who was en­ gaged to take charge on the play ground till the close o f school. An association com m ittee is ar­ ranging for a girls patriotic rally on I the playground at 7 :30 on Tuesday, July 2. Music and an address by Miss Clarke, one o f the National Y. W. C. A. Secretaries, will be the main features o f the rally, which is called to adopt a program for a summer continuation o f Red Cross activities in com bination with recreation. The rally is fo r all girls o f the com m u n ­ ity from the age o f twelve years up. Will those reading this notice kindly circulate the invitation so that tne gathering may include every girl and young woman in the village? — Buy W . S.

Advertisem ents, circulars, pla­ cards, handbills, cards or notices re­ lating to any private business, and pictures, cartoons or other documents o f a political character, or concern­ ing any election, or designed to in­ fluence an election in favor o f any candidate, shall not be placed upon the walls or elsewhere, for public ex­ hibition, within post offices or the lobbies thereof, or any portion o f the post office premises. The proposal to extend the draft age so as to include all men between the ages o f eighteen and forty-five is the result o f Provost Marshal Gen­ eral Crouder’s “ work or fight” order. There seems to be a grow ing senti­ ment in favor o f it. In extending the draft age it^vill not only increase the number from which the boards can draw, but it will also increase the num ber available fo r the G overn­ ment’s use. There will be a large number o f these men over the age o f thirty who will be unfit fo r active service but who will be able to help in other ways where there is a call fo r them. This will give the govern­ ment control o f practically all man power. If this order to work or fight is enforced there will be several East Hampton men either obliged to change their positions or enlist in the service. As yet we are unable to tell just what the logical definition as General Growder calls it, o f work is. W e understand that any position now occupied by a man that could ju s t as well be filled by a girl or woman will com p el these men to seek other posi­ tions.
