THE E AST H AM P T ON STA R . FR ID A Y . N O VEM BER 15. 1918 BRIEF NOTES FROM AMAGANSETT A M A G A N S E T T RED CROSS ^ ^ ^ X “ X - X - X \ X - X “ X - K - X \ X \ X “ W Miss M ary Bergen has gone to the city to spend the winter, as she usu­ ally does. Martin Bennett has so fa r recov­ ered from his recent illness as to take short walks out o f doors. Harry Lester’s safe arrival over­ seas has been announced to his par­ ents, Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Lester. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gilchrist and maids closed their Cliff cottage last week and went back to New England. Charles R. Horton was subpoenaed as witness to appear at the county seat this week Tuesday and W e d n e s­ day. Hazel Bennett, who has been ill at the home o f her grandm other, Mrs. John Bennett, has entirely re­ covered. Charlie Jacobs, o f the U. S. Navy, who has been very ill with influenza and pneumonia, is recuperating in our our village fo r two or three weeks. Mr. and Mrs. Charles B. Edwards and fam ily have moved from M on­ tauk, where they have been residing fo r the past year, and are now set­ tled in their home at the M u lford homestead. A p p rentice Seaman Wm. C. Conk­ lin, o f the A rm y Training school, at New Haven Conn., surprised his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Dimon Conk­ lin, last Saturday noon with a forty- eight hours furlough. Howard Brown has arrived safe­ ly over seas, so w o rd has been re ­ ceived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Brown. This boy was mark­ ed up fo r Siberia with Harry Lester, and they were both at Camp Lee, Va. Jesse Scott, o f the 305th Infantry, A. E. F., has been over the top nine times. The last time he was slightly w ounded but is getting w e ll fast and is anxious to be back chasing the Huns with his corporal. In their last engagem ent these two men captured eighteen German prisoners and took them back to the Am e rican lines. This boy has seen hard fighting and plenty o f it, and seems to bear a charmed life. As the sick in our village are all on the road to recovery school was opened M onday m orning, but excite­ m ent ran so high am ong the pupils over the good news o f the armistice that the principal thought it wise to let out the school fo r the afternoon session, but before going hom e the teachers organized a peace parade from the different grades, and with horns blow ing and drums beating and banners floating, a very attractive little line was form e d . W m . H. A b o r n , o f Am a gansett and East Orange, was elected last week from the second ward o f East Orange as councilm an to fill a vacancy in the city council caused by the death o f one o f its members. O f the two names proposed Mr. A b o rn received fifteen votes to his oponent’s three. The election was then declared unan­ imous. Mr. A b o rn has been well known in the civic life o f the Or­ anges fo r many years, as a man o f strong character and p e r fect integ­ rity. UN ITED W A R W O RK CAM P A IGN A fine service was held last Tues­ day evening at the Amagansett Presbyterian church, to usher in the W a r Service campaign o f the seven organizations tht have the stamp of approval o f our governm ent. Dr. Howard Duffield was the speaker o f the evening and gave a w o n d e rful discourse on this, aur united and pa­ triotic work. Mr. Brooks, o f the Y M. C. A ., who is stationed at South­ am p ton, was present and gave a most interesting talk on the w o rk o f that organization, its past and future, Captain Duffield also presented the Boy Scouts with their bars and med­ als fo r their work in the Third Lib­ erty Loan— not the Fourth as some thought. These will probably be re­ ceived in the Spring. Medals were received by Kenneth M u lford and Carl Erickson, and bars were pre­ sented to J. D. Coon (w h o is in camp and was the Scout m aster,) Kenneth W eir, John M cCarter and George Conklin, jr. This was one o f our most interesting services and more should have been out to listen to the fine discourses. A collection ’ taken fo r this object at the end of the service. W IN IFRED FORD CH ORLEY W inifred Ford Chorley, daughter o f Rev. E. Clowes Chorley, D. D. rector o f St. Philip’s church, Garri­ son, N. Y ., died o f pneumonia on Sat­ urday evening, Nov. 2nd at Garrison. She volunteered fo r nOrsing ser­ vice in Cold Spring Hospital, near Garrison, and there contracted in­ fluenza which developed into pneu­ monia. The funeral services were conducted at Garrison by the Bishop o f New York on Tuesday, Nov. 5th. Miss Chorley spent this summer in Am agansett, where in future years she will be greatly missed.

Community Service Takes Place of Mother, Friends and Home for Soldiers. Ten young officers o f the Student Array Training Corps o f the Universi­ ty of Detroit recently applied for a furnished house and a housekeeper who would not be a servant, but, as one young officer expressed It. \the sort of woman to whom the boys can call out ‘Hello, mother I' when tlu*y come In the front door.\ Homesickness is the malady for which War Camp Community Service supplies innumerable cures. “ W e've got your number,\ says the W. C. C. S. to the homesick boy from camp with leisure to spend in any one of the three hundred towns scattered over the country. While lie's wonder­ ing what on earth he’ll do with him­ self when he gets there, not knowing a soul In town and with a limited pep. centage o f his “ thirty per\ In his pock­ et, along comes a friendly printed card from the local branch of his own lodge announcing a reception that night es­ pecially for soldier members. By the same mall the Methodist church sends an announcement o f all Its meetings, addressed to him, with Thl6 Meant You printed at the bottom. How did they know he was a Methodist? He had forgotten about the little “ Personal Card\ he made out at the adjutant's request during his first day In camp when It was only one of the endless details In the round o f dentists and doctors and general confusion. The W. C. C. S. had not only his num­ ber, but his name and address, his home town, the name of the school he’d gone to and a good bit about the things he was fondest o f doing— each fact written into a little blank on the card especially for It. “ No American May Reluse,\ Cardinal Gibbons Says James Cardinal Gihhons, the leading Catholic churchman In America, has Issued a strong ap­ peal in support of the United War Work Campaign. “ It is an American campaign,\ he said. “ Its appeal Is one that no American may refuse. America's answer will be another triumphant announcement that we are in this war as one people and as one na­ tion to see It through fo victory. Into tlie splendid work of sustain­ ing the morale o f our fighting men the great social organizations of America have thrown themselves. The American people will raise the sum they ask— generously and gladly.\ CATHOLIC BOYS JOIN Girls, Too, Will Stand With Them Behind Every Fighter at the Front. T o put behind every Catholic fighter In France the support o f one boy or girl In every parish throughout the United States is the plan o f the Na­ tional Catholic Wnr Council for back­ ing the Victory Hoys' and Victory Girls’ \Earn and G ive\ Division o f the United Work War Campaign to raise $170,500,000 “ for the boys over there\ during the week o f November 11-18. Through diocesan, county and parish organizations, the rallying o f one youngster for every man who has gone to war In every community is already under way. By theii* own earnings, and not by contributions, it is expect­ ed that these sturdy little sponsors for the boys abroad will each raise at least five dollars for the Joint wel­ fare work of the Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., National Catholic W ar Coun­ cil, Including the Knights of Colum­ bus, W ar Camp Community Service, Jewish W elfare Board, American Li­ brary Association and Salvation Array. Boys and girls in every Catholic parish throughout the United States are already being picked to represent each fighting man who has left their church for the front. In every home that flies a service flag little brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, are eagerly volunteering to look out for the share of their family fighter In the huge joint w elfare campaign for all the boys abroad.
