A telephone call is not fully "started" when this question
fcy the operator has been answered.
In repeating the number you ask for, she does so in order
that you may know whether she has understood rightly;
also that in hearing the number repeated you may correct
any transposition or miscalling of numerals made when thf
number was first given by you.
It is very essential that this repetition be listened for and
corrections made whei required. The operator is trying
always to do her part; consideration of her effort and
readiness to co operate are due her in return.

SERVE AND SAVE—BUY WAR SAVINGS STAMPS!
The United States did not enter in-
to this war unadvisedly, hastily, un-
der stress of heat or passion. We took
the step calmly, soberly, reluctantly,
with a full sense of the awful respon-
sibilities involved, tne sacrifices de-
manded, the magnitude of the task.
President Wilson did not advise in
his war message, nor did congress art
in declaring n state of war between
the Cuited States and Germany with-
out giving the most solemn consider
ntion to what the action meant. They
knew it meant the death of thousands
of brave Americans; thev knew tint
it meant suffering and wounds nud the
disabling of thousands of our young
men. They counted to the full the hu-
man cost and the material cost.

The Punishment Should Fit the Crime
Since 1'nited States entered the war
and before enemy aliens ami spies
have hampered iu every conceivable
may the war activities of this coun-
try. They nave iu some cases been
placed und« r arrest and even a few
have been interned and cared for at
the expense of the people against
whom they have conspired. They have
been well fed and amused apparently
and their only inconvenience is the
loss of their time. When is this going
to end.1 When are those kind of citi-
zens going to get their just desserts?

4 'THE AMERICAN S CREED" ..
Washington, April I.—"The Amer-
ican's Creed," for which the city of
Baltimore offered a prize of $1,000,
was made public yesterday. Its selec-
tion was the result of a 4 * national
citi-en's creed contest, approved by
President Wilson, Speaker Clark and
a host of famous Americans. The au-
thor of the creed is William Tyler
Page of Friendship Heights, Mil.,
near Washington. It reads:
4'The American's Creed—I be-
lieve in the United States of Am-
erica as a government of the peo-
ple, by the people, for the people;
whose just powers are derived
from the consent of the governed:
a democracy in a republic; a sov-
erign nation of many soverign
states; a perfect union, one and.
inseparable; established on those
principles of freedom, equality,
justice and humanity for which
American patriots sacrificed their
lives and fortunes.
4 41, therefore, believe it is my
duty to my country to love it; to
support its constitution; to obey
its laws; to respect its flag; and
to defend it against all enemies."
