The fight started at 3:45 o'clock this morning and the Americans
had attained all their objectives by 7 :45 o'clock.
The Americans have been pressing the Germans so hard that the
enemy has been forced to throw three Jiew divisions of his best troops
in the line during the last three days.
The Americans are like tigers. Their commanders have all they
can do- t-hold the men back. Even the wounded are enthusiastic and
eager to fight. They are proud of their wounds. A general who
visited a field dressing station said he was elated by the sight.

The aooreclatlon shown by thei
shoppers at last year's Bargain Day
assures the success of Salem's Sec
ond Annual Bargain Day to be held
Saturday, June 15.
The constantly increasing whole
sale cost of merchandise caused the
merchants to feel a sort of reluctance
toward holding a Bargain Day this
ear. They realized that to replace
the goods which will be sold on
Barraln Day they will In many in
stances have to pay a wholesale price
higher than that received from the
Bareain Day shoppers. v
However, so many requests for a
repetition of Bargain Day came pour
ing in from residents all over the
country that the wish of the public
has prevailed aad practically all the
orojcressive merchants or baiem win
offer special Inducements on this day
of all days for economical buying.
This action on the part of the mer
chants should be appreciated for they
are really making a big sacrifice in
reducing prices at this time.
It is a generally recognized fact
that all kinds of merchandise can
be purchased right . now in Salem
at a price that is considerably lower
than is charged In otae- commun
ities. The further reductions that
will prevail on. Bargain Day will
