THE E A S T H AM P T ON STA R , F R I D A Y , N O VEM BER 15, 1918 THE STAR Published Every Friday M orning Entered at the Post Office at East Hampton, N. Y ., as Second-class matter B. E.

The Kaiser is in Dutch now for sure. Ralph Hallock, form e r ly o f River- head, a well known newspaper man, has lately taken the editorial man­ agem ent o f the Glen Cove Times. Bro. and Mrs. L. B. Green, o f Patchogue, left fo r their winter home in St. Petersburg, Fla., last week. Mr. Green leaves the m a n a gem ent of his paper, the Argus, in the capable hands o f his son, Alden W . Green. Do you know that an editor or a reporter fo r a newspaper can in his rounds stop and ask a hundred per­ sons “ W h a t is the N e w s ? ” and ninety out o f the hundred w ill reply, “ nothing special.\ And yet fifty out o f that number know som ething that if not found in the next paper will astonish them greatly and disappoint them m ore, and perhaps make them madder than hornets. D o n ’t be afriad to let the newspaper man know it.— Riverhead Review. One o f the matters that the board o f supervisors should consider at their next m eeting is the raising o f the pay o f the inspectors o f election and other officials whose duties at the polls have multiplied to a large degree, both through the many yards o f red tape surrounding the election machinery and by the doubling of the vote in the granting o f the fran­ chise to women. Six dollars fo r the tim e and atteneion given to the work is altogether too small, and not less than ten dollars should be paid. There are so many argum ents in fa ­ vor o f increasing the pay o f these election officials that we cannot see how the supervisors can do otherwise than raise hte rate. It is unfortun­ ate the increase could not have been fixed before election day, so that the election officials could have benefit­ ed thereby fo r their services o f last Tuesday.— Ex. Evidently some o f the other towns on the island experienced the same predicam ent as did East Hampton on Election day. In tw o o f the dis­ tricts here it was necessary to call in inexperienced assistants in order to fill the vacancies on the election board caused by the resignation o f the old members o f the board. Either new districts must be form e d or the com p ensation fo r this w o rk in­ creased. UN ITED W A R W O RK CAM P A IGN The therm om eter registering our local contributions stands at $3000 as we go to press. W e have three and a half days left to meet our quota o f $7,500. This means $4,500 still to come. East Hampton can not afford to fail in this drive. W e must com e across and shoulder our share o f the burden, fo r this m oney is needed by the w a r work societies and our men abroad need what that m oney can “ p u rchase” fo r them, now, m ore than ever before. The local com m ittee appeals to all and everyone who can give liberally w ithout actually crippling themselves to do so forthw ith and w ithout fu r ­ ther hesitation. Peace can not be used as an excuse fo r refraining to give, nor can L iberty Bond pur­ chases. W ill we individuals having lived in com p a rative com fort during nineteen months o f w a r be able to look our East Hampton fighters in the fa c e upon their return and con­ scientiously say \W e have backed you to our lim it?” This is a matter well worth pondering over fo r many o f us. Those am o n g us who can ill afford to give at all, the local com ­ mittee reports, are responding gen­ erously and out o f all proportion to their means. They deserve unstinted praise, and they are the ones whom our sailors and soldiers will grasp by the hand. Do we not all desire to experience that hand clasp? Those who prove to be slackers, how will they feel? DIED KING— In East Hampton, Nov. 1st, Chauncey King, aged seventeen years,. Burial at East Hampton. CH ORLEY— At Garrison, N.

HIGH SCHOOL NOTES Culver Dayton, who form e r ly at­ tended High school, visited us last week. On Friday afternoon Rockwell Tal- mage spoke to the “ V ictory Boys” concerning the United W ar W o rk Campaign. E v e ry boy over fourteen years o f age* pledged five dollars toward this drive. The pupils enjoyed a holiday on Monday. At nine o ’clock it was not certain that this would be granted but when two o f the members o f the board, T. R. Barns and Geo. A . El- dredge, came to school and witnessed the patriotism and enthusiasm dis­ played, they granted the holiday. On Monday afternoon all the pu­ pils o f the school took part in a pa­ rade headed by Mr. W o o d , who car­ ried a flag o f each o f the Allies. A f ­ ter marching through the village and around Town pond, the students came to a halt in fron t o f the post office, where they were addressed by Mr. Tiffany. The National anthem was sung follow e d by a salute to the flag. The exam inations fo r the quarter will be given on next Thursday and Friday. There will be no Thanksgiving ex­ ercises this year as so much time has already been lost due to the in­ fluenza quarantine. The facu lty feels that the tim e given in preparation fo r these exercises 'Should be spent in trying to catch up the w o rk in which we are behind. Miss Gordon-Sm ith gave a very interesting talk to the girls o f the High school and o f the eighth grade on W ednesday afternoon. She spoke in behalf o f the United W a r W o rk Campaign. Mrs. Pansy Baker, w ife o f William Baker, o f this village, died at the Brunswick Home last Friday after- non. Mrs. Baker was taken to the Brunswick Home about tw o years ago, and lived there up to the time o f her death.The body was brought to East Hampton and burial was in the North End cem e tery. Mrs. Baker was tw enty- seven years o f age. Strong Bros, have rented Mrs. Ruger D onoho’s cottage, “ W illow Bend,” on E g y p t lane, to H enry H. A b b ott, o f New York city ; Austin Culver’s cottage on Dunem ere lane to W. Sterling Peters, and Thomas Nash’s cottage on Lee avenue, to Henry Parish, o f New Y o r k City.

The rush o f patriotic N ew Y o rkers to enroll in the U n conditional Sur­ render Club has astounded even the m ost enthusiastic o f the founders o f that organization. A t the clu b ’s headquarters, 19 W e st F o r ty-fourth street, there was a p e r fect avalapche o f telegram s, special delivery letters and telephone calls from men and women w h o desired to place their names on the m embership rolls. The U n conditional Surrender Club was started at Flint, Mich. The idea has spread across the country like wildfire.
