Monday morning, Nov. 11th,
tli o German ourronder is complete
and that country in stripped of
military power cn land, sua and
in the air. Never attain can the
citizens of that country boast of
their 'power as u nation; they are
crushed andwithouthonor in tho

before the world can forget the
hideous crimes committed by the
German soldiers who beljeved

In our last issue we made ref
erence to W. E. Martin, W. C.
Jasper and J. C. Bowen as the
"Big Three" who would Jact as
solicitors for the United War
Work Fund in the New Bridge
district and it appears that cer
tain parties have taken exception
and are using it as a excuse for
not contributing to the fund.
We had no intention of making
it appear that we considered the
three men as the whole works
in that neighborhood qr bettor in
any way than any other New
Brilge citizen, but merely to
inform the people that Messrs.
Martin. Jasper and Bowen had
sole and entire charge of raising
tho quota in that district and did
not think it possible that anyone
would misintepret the item.
We are making this statement
as an explanation, not as an apol
ogy, and we sincerely trust that
those who took offense will now
u n -erstand and will do all in their
power to help Eaglo Valley "go
