T H E EA S T H A M P T O N ST AR, F R ID A Y , O C T O B E R 11. 1918 THE STAR Published Every Friday M o rning Entered at the Post Office a t East Hampton, N. Y., as Second-class matter B. E. Boughton Welby E. Boughton Proprietor Editor Subscription Price: $2.00 per year in advance The Fourth Liberty Loan is be­ hind its schedule in East Hampton. In order that it shall not continue so and become all the more difficult to catch up and carry over the top as m u s t be done next week, everyone should redouble their efforts and buy. D o n ’t put it off until tomorrow, such procrastination goes as wine to the Kaiser’s head. If you have already bought, do it again. The pain in your pocketbook can be as nothing to the pain in a splintered leg or arm. A bond will help take it out of our boy’s and put it into the Germans! Does patriotism, like charity, begin at home? Provost M arshal General Crowdqr evidently thinks it does, since he is openly appealing to reg­ istrants in the new draft to ask for exemption or deferred classification whenever they are entitled to it, even though their patriotism inclines them to waive any such claims. It is evi­ dently fe lt by the m ilitary authori- tives that the number of able-bodied men of draft age w ithout dependents is ample for the m ilitary needs of the country, and that it is just as unpa­ triotic for a man whose fam ily needs his support to neglect his home duties because of excessive patriotism as it is fo r a physically eligible registrant w ithout dependents to evade the draft. President W ilson’s reply to the German peace feeler is backed up by practically all of the Press in the country and what is more to the point, by the chiefs of the Allied Governments. It is more of an u lt i­ m a tum than a reply if one w ill but take the pains to read between the lines. You can bet the Kaiser will read between those lines. It is not m e a n t for “home consum p tion,” but for the German people as well as for the gang at Potsdam. W e think the editorial from one of our leading papers quoted below, worth reading. T H E P R E S I D E N T D E M A N D S It m a y be hard for a newspaper— it m a y be hard for even Senator Lodge— to adm it it, but the fact is that the President of the United States has a great deal ation befor# him than they have. He has the diplomatic reports to draw upon. He has the secret service, not only of this county but of all the A l­ lies, to give him knowledge. Con­ fidential military documents are his to read. Above all, he has the ad­ vantage of exchange of views with the governments of England, France •and Italy. Washington despatches le f t it in little doubt that.the Presi­ dent was for two days in cable com­ m u n ication with Lloyd George, Clem- enceau, and Orlando, before send­ ing his answer to the note of the Ger­ man Government. W e m e ntion these things merely as reminders that Mr. W ilson is in an incomparably better position to penetrate German designs and to take measures against them, than can be any hasty commentator in the press or in Congress. O f course, the President may be misled; he may make a wrong use of his unequalled sources of inform a tion; but i t is cer­ tain that the presumptions are all in his favor as against the casual critic in the street. W hen he speaks, after consultation with the best heads in the Governments of the Allies, it is a t least reasonable to suppose that he is nearer right than the impetuous citizen who looks up from his morning headlines to exclaim: “ He ought to have told them to go to blazes!” It must be borne in m ind that the President’s real reply to Germany has not yet been made. He is simply clear­ ing preliminaries out of the way; seeking to ascertain whether the Ger­ man offer is sincere; but all the while retaining the purpose to make his fin­ al answer “ candid and straightfor­ ward.” Those words, in Mr. W ilson’s mouth, mean no compromise and no budging. Men reckon ill with the President who see in his note of yes­ terday the slighest relaxing of deter­ m ination. It is not mere diplomatic fencing that he is doing. He is simp­ ly serving notice on the adversary that he w ill not strike if an honest surrender is intended, but otherwise ---- ! If the Germans thought that they m ight find W oodrow W ilson more lenient than Lloyd George or Clemenceau, they made another ter­ rible mistake. This they are in a way speedily to find out. W illiam Conklin had the misfor­ tune to receive another severe cut on his hand Wednesday while operating the variety machine at the East Ham pton Lum ber & Coal Co. m ill at Bridgehampton. This is the second tim e he has cut this same finger in this machine.

K n ight is a forceful, intense speaker. He speaks with the direct­ ness and earnestness that can come only from vivid experience with the horrors of war and H u n atrocities. The other num b e r w ill be the Bos­ ton Opera Singers, a splendid group o f well known operatic singers which comprises first rank soloists and beau­ tifu l ensemble. The entertainm e n t course commit­ tee that handled the courses in years back has disbanded and now the Neighborhood Association will m a n ­ age the course this year and if the public shows its appreciation of the course offered, a large course will be put on next winter. W e are told that if sufficient tickets are sold to the public, that possibly another num b e r may be added to these three. It all lies with the peo­ ple of East Hampton. I f you w a n t to hear some real good talent this w in­ ter, back up the Neighborhood Asso­ ciation w ith their new undertaking. The other visitor to address the di­ rectors was Mr. W a lton, one of the eight men in charge of com m u n ity or­ ganization on Long Island. He told the members present of the work of the W a r Council, and at the con­ clusion of his remarks asked that the president be empowered to appoint a committee to confer with and co­ operate with the W a r Council in carrying out plans for war service. Another im p o rtant m a tter settled was that of employing Mrs. Jane Brown as settlement worker a t the Neighborhood House in Freetown. Mrs. Brown w ill move into the house and assume her duties Oct. 15th. G A S O L I N E A N D P A T R I O T I S M If any one were inclined to ques­ tion the patriotism of the American people, it would only be necessary for him to spend a few minutes on the streets o f New York or any other eastern city on one of these gasless Sunday m o rnings to be convinced as to the utter groundlessness o f his skepticism, for there is absolutely nothing to be seen in the shape of conveyances, except baby carrieges, street cars and a few antiquated ve­ hicles drawn by quadrupeds of an al­ most forgotten species. This is true, notw ithstanding the millions of auto­ mobiles for which our people have paid billions of dollars, having in mind prim a rily the fact that their possession would enable them to spend the one weekly holiday health­ fu lly and pleasantly in the open air of the country. W h ile there is no federal statute covering the matter, the observance of the government’s request has been so complete that more than 21,000,000 gallons of gas­ oline have already been saved in this ner for the war requirem ents of the government. A N A P P R E C I A T I O N The follow ing letter accompanied a check for $100 donated to the Neighborhood Association by the Boys’ club in acknowledgement of the benefit derived by them from the use of the H a rriet F. Herrick play­ ground this summer: New York, Oct. 3, 1918. J. M. Strong, Esq., East Ham p ton, N. Y. Last spring when the possibility establishing a boys’ club a t East H a m p ton was being discussed, Mr. D C. Adams explained to you that East H a m p ton had as great an interest 5n it as the parents of the bays partici­ pating, because, if a success, desir­ able summer residents would be at­ tracted to the town. Through your good offices the use of the town playground was obtain­ ed for the club w ithout charge. The operation of the club this summer has proved it asuccess— nrar parents believe the work done at the club last summer has benefitted their sons, and, based up­ on the theory that it w ill be in opera­ tion next year, several fam ilies pro­ pose to spend next summer at East Hampton. The club was planned to be operat­ ed for the benefit of the com m u n ­ ity and there is no intention to make money therefrom. A t the close of the season the club has a small cred­ it balance from which we are pleased to be able to enclose herewith a check to your order for $100 to be devoted to the cost of upkeep and improvement of the grounds. Please endorse this check to the proper au­ thorities and state that the same is sent as an acknowledgement and in appreciation of the assistance rend ered by the trustees of the play­ ground. W ith the support already promised, Mr. Adams, M r. Van B runt, and the writer see no reason why the club should not be successfully continued, and it w ill materially assist us if we receive the co-operation of the men charged with the government of East Ham pton and interested in the tow n ’s growth and development. Yours truly, W m . D. Judson.
