Marshal Hale's victorious Tommies

for further gains today.
"South of Messines we slightly ad

Another great artillery duel has de

stated, indicating a renewal of infan

With the British Armies !n the Field,
June 11. (U. P.) As a result of the
important, in fact, the decisive part
played by British airmen in the suc
cess at Messines, it is more than prob
able that a request will be made to
have American military efforts cen
tered on aviation.
British flying men made possible
the Messines victory. In no single en
gagement in which the British have
participated have the air fighters
played so important a part. They do
not only "put out the eye" of the
German artillery, thereby decreasing
its effectiveness fully 80 per cent, but.
having driven the German flyers from
the air, they hovered over every sector
of the battlefront and gave minute di
rections as to where and when various
units could and should advance.
Darin of Flyers Remarkable
Their effectiveness was so great and
their daring uncovered so many nt
possibilities of cooperation and offen
sive action that a much greated con
centratlon on aerial construction is
bound to eventuate.
It is presumed that the Germans
will also, seek to profit by the lesson.
While the allies are confident" of
their ability to excel the German out-;
put of flyers and flying machine.

LIBERTY BOND AND HELP
Our Country Calls to You
to Do Your Share to Save
Her Buy Liberty Bonds
By Frederic A. Delano.
Member of the Federal Reserve Board.
More than a century ago our forefathers fought for liberty
and for the freedom of the seas. Weak though they were in
numbers and resources, they fought the greatest power in
the world and won a victory.
Half a century ago we fought a bitter contest to main
tain the principles of the constitution and preserve the Union.
Now we are face to face with the reaffirmation of some of
these same principles for the benefit of the world. For the
first time in over 50 years, the nation calls upon every Ameri
can man, woman and child to do his share. For the first
time in the lives of most of us we are asked by our govern
ment to help. Ten million young men have registered their
names for the country's service. The overwhelming majority
of these men did this willingly and cheerfully, but there are,
in addition to this, some seventy million people of mature age,
many of whom have volunteered for military service and a
great majority of whom would be glad to register their names
and offer themselves to the government for such service as
they might be fitted.
In .the great cause we have before us every one can do
something. Indeed, people are coming to Washington by the
hundreds, offering their services to the government freely and
generously, but at the present moment, next to the service of
the soldier in the field, there is no service that can be rendered
equal to that of supporting the government loyally and en
thusiastically. The government is offering the people a bond issue of two
billion dollars. This means that every man, woman and
child, to' do his pro rata share, should subscribe to $20 worth.
It means that the average father of a family should subscribe
to $100 worth. Let us not fall into the mistake of assuming
that somebody else will do his duty and more than his duty;
that somebody else will subscribe to these bonds, and that
they will be oversubscribed. Let us be sure that we, every
one of us, are doing our duty. This is a matter for each indi
vidual to decide for himself. Do not wait. The date of the
closing of the subscriptions is near. Do not let your neighbor
alone bear the burden of the war. Be prepared to contribute
your share, and if you cannot be a soldier of the army be a
soldier of the treasury. Subscribe to the Libertv loan.
RECEIVED IN . RUSSIA
'Sentiments Held Entirely in
Accord With Those of the
Workmen and Soldiers.
By William G. Shepherd
Petrograd. June 11. (U. P.) Presi
dent Wilson's message to Russia
sounds the keynote of Russian feeling
so aptly that it might have come from
the lips of the workmen's and sol
diers' council. It was so regarded
universally in Petrograd today.
Russian newspapers did not get ine
message until after roidnignt Satur
day night, so that no Sunday news
papers contained any editorial com
ment. A canvass of editors in Petro
grad and Moscow, however, indicates
that the Russian press generally
conservative as well as radical wll
approve the message.
What hit the popular viewpoint
most was the president's phrase inter
preting the idea that no territory
fchould be transferred without consent
of the people therein. The Wllsonian
phrases, they held, mignt have Deen
uttered by the workmen and sol
diers themselves, including President
TEcheldie of the council.
British Papers Are Pleased
London. June II. U. P.) "Mo
mentous." "cogent." "inexorable in
logic, " "historic" these were some of
the editorial phrases with which Brit
ish newspapers today hailed President
Wilson's message to Russia.
Editorials of papers of every shade
of politics were united in approbation
of the ..-merican executive's argument
against return to the status before
the war as a possible basis for peace
Wilson's "popular" interpretation or
the phrase "no annexations and no
indemnities" also pleased.
The popular verdict was that the
American communication was a better
exposition of the allies' war aims than
the allleB themselves have given to
Even though, the note was delayed

Liberty Loan Facts
CONSIDER THE TAX EXEMPT FEATURE
Liberty Bonds pay 3 Y, per cent net free from all Federal, State and
Local taxes (except estate and inheritance taxes).
The importance of this tax exempt feature in Liberty Bonds Is
worthy of particular consideration.
The holder of all other forms of personal property or Investment
securities is liable for taxation. The combined tax rates throughout
the country are said to average nearly 24 per cent, when taking Into
consideration all forms of taxation under Federal, State and Local
That is, the holder of an ordinary 1000 Investment security might
be subject to a tax of f 25.00, more or'less.
If he purchases a Liberty Bond, he receives the full 3J4 per cent
Interest wtthout consideration for any taxes whatever. On the other"
hand, if he holds some form of taxable security, it must necessarily
yield him an annual return of nearly 6 per cent, in order to permit him.
to pay all the taxes for which be is liable, so that his net income will
produce 3'4 per cent.". Therefore, if an investor pays his taxes In full, .
he cduld better afford to hold a 3 per cent Liberty Bond than any
taxable security yielding less than 6 per cent interest per annum.
