THE WEEK’S REVIEW
Battling tor every point of vantage,
giving ground only when overwhelmed
by numbers and exacting a trlghtful
toll of lives for every foot of ground
abandoned, the British line In Picardy
is still Intact. While the German on
alaugbt gained ground at u number of
points Monday, there was no sign of
disintegration in the British forces,
which at many points, especially on
the northern end of the long line of
battle, are standing firm.

It now has been definitely ascer

1,000,000 Germans have been brought
to the western front in an endeavor
to crush the British army holding the
line from the region of Arras to the

comes increasingly evident that the
enemy, in bis drive, has met with op-

la a battle that has rivaled In feroc-

Ihree and a half years of warfare, the
British on a fifty-mile front have with-

British line has been bent back but
not as much as had been expected by

Democracy and Liberty Under-

Americans Face Great Duties In Pro-

Our Soldiers and Our Allies
(By HAPSBURG LIEBE of the Vigi-
Democracy and Liberty are not al-
ways synonymous, jierhaps, but they
mean the same to us now, certainly.
A military autocracy, after more that*
forty years of thorough and cunning
preparation, a great part of it by means
of weapons of our own invention, ha»
thrust our Democracy and our Liberty
into the crucible to test it out. to see
whether It would hold good. They did
not believe it would hold good, those
Prussian militarists; they do not be-
lieve it yet. We believe it will, but oar
belief has been made up heretofore
largely of egotism and blindness.
Democracy and Liberty, the world's-
with our own, is now undergoing the
supreme test. Of course there Is dross,
and it Is coming to the top rapidly.
There Is Inefficiency, mismanagement,
grave mistakes that even our national
leaders have made; there has been
some graft, no doubt; there has been
some playing of politics; there has
been profiteering, but all this Is only
the dross floating to the top of tha
crucible. We were never a military
nation, you know. The biggest of our
mistakes, I think, was In our shipbuild-
ing program, but we were never a ship-
building nation, either. However, thla
dross Is all being cleared away.
Fully 60 per cent of the winning of
this war depends upon us here at home.
We have three great duties upon us
now as we never had them upon ns-
before—those of us who can grow food
products must grow more than ever;,
we must all aid in the saving of foods,
and especially wheat, meats, and:
sugur; and all of us who can, though-
It may necessitate some sacrifice, must
buy these new Liberty bonds. Proper-
ly carried through, these three great
duties will prove the overbalancing
power In the winning of the war, be-
yond a doubt. The growing of great
crops and the conservation of food,
and the buying of Liberty bonds, quick-
ly mean enough food for our soldiers
and our allies, and enough ships to
carry It. If we fall In this the die of
destiny Is quite likely to fall with lt»
skull-and-crossbones upward for us; If
we do not fall, then Democracy and
Liberty will come out of the crucible-
covered with glory. The result le

WHO FIGHTS AT HOME? SAY 1C

(By ROLAND Q. USHER, of tho Vlg~
We cannot fight a war and still do
business as usual. This means you
and not other people. You might a*
well come to It first as last. The war
Is unusual and we shall have to have-
unusual business to deal with It.
The gist of It Is this: The nation
has Just so many hands and Just a»
much energy—Just so much raw mate-
rial and labor. There are only 2ff
hours in the day and 365 days In the
year. We can make only so many
things In a given time with a given,
supply of time and material. If we
make some things we cannot make-
othera. If we put sugar into candy to-
stuff idle women we cannot have Jam
to feed the soldiers. If we make au-
tos for pleasure only, we cannot use-
that material, labor and energy for
tanks and airplanes. If we bum the-
gasoline on Sundays, the boys In.
France cannot use It In battle.
The whole truth Is that we must
stop business as usual. And—this I*
where you come In—you must stop-
spending as usual. Do It now. Put
your money Into gunpowder and not
face powder; Into tanka and not limou-
sines; Into food for the trenches In-
stead of spending It In hotels and res-
taurants. But you cannot buy directly
for the army. The government must
do It. Give the government th4 money
and BUY A LIBERTY BOND.
Your Bond Buys Explosives.
Many farmers here In America have
need giant powder or dynamite 1»
blasting out stumps and rocks and 1»
preparing a hillside for an orchard.
Explosives are dangerous to handle
and we all duck our heads and nu»
when the charge Is to be set off. Over
In France today our sons are having
the stuff hurled at them every minute
of the day and night with an occasion-
al volley of gas shells that choke and
strangle to death and they don't dare-
run. With the boys looking death In
the face over there, we can do no more
than look the issue squarely In the
face here at home and buy Liberty

Do many farmers, far removed from

fact that the fanner Is not Immediate-

danger more Imminent. Russia is
made up of farming population, proba-
bly three-fourths of which knew very
little of what the war over there
