men with him.

- London, May 18. Lloyd's reports
that the steamer Iona with the crew

SEARCHING FOR THE LOST SEAPLANE

Washington, May 19. Apprehen Apprehension
sion Apprehension as to the safety of Commander
John H. Towers of Rome, Ga., and
his crew of four men, who with the
seaplane NC-3, have been lost at sea
, for more than forty hours, had begun
last night to displace the feeling of
confidence among naval officials that
the trans-Atlantic fliers soon wouhi
be found by searching vessels.
No word had been received from
the NC-3 since 5:16 o'clock Saturday
morning when Commander Towers
reported that his plane, the flagship
of the squadron, was off her course
some 300 miles from the island of
Fayal, .Azores. Dispatches from Rear
Admiral Jackson, aboard the United
States ship Melville at Ponta Delga Delga-da,
da, Delga-da, Azores, last night, said a gale was
sweeping the seas northwest of the
Azores and that high waves were
running.
With the NC-4 at Horta, groomed
and ready for the next leg of the
trans-Atlantic flight, and the crew of
the NC-1 safely aboard the cruiser
Columbia at Horta, the navy with its
vast force of vessels concentrated to
aid in the trans-Atlantic attempt, was
bending all of its energies to the find finding
ing finding of the lost flyers. s
Two battleships, the U. S. S. Flor Florida
ida Florida and the U. S. S. Texas, and nearly
a score of destroyers were scouring
the sea over a wide area all day yes yesterday
terday yesterday and last night.-
The fog, which it is supposed,
forced the NC-lto the open sea when
within a few miles of Corvo head headland,
land, headland, the objective point of the aerial
argonauts, had been dissipated by
strong westerly, winds yesterday
morning which increased to a gale by
9 a. m. and whipped up a nasty, chop-
py sea, the most menacing condition ;
possible for a seaplane riding on the
surface of the ocean.
Messages received from Rear Ad Admiral
miral Admiral Jackson late last night telling
of the damage to the NC-1 caused by
the heavy seas, running at the time
the plane was found, served to in increase
crease increase the apprehension felt for the
safety of the crew of the NC-3. The
lower planes of the NC-1 were badly
damaged, one pontoon was entirely
carried away, the right wing was
badly br6ken, the left wing ribs were
damaged and the elevators were
i smashed. e
Naval vessels standing by in an ef effort
fort effort to salvage the big boat reported
to the department that the seas were
running so high that it was impossi impossible
ble impossible to save it at this time. It was
; pointed out that only good fortune
could possibly save the NC-3 from
even more serious damage, since it is
handicapped by the extra weight of
its crew.
Using Corvo island as an operating
base, the screen of battleships and
destroyers were sweeping westward
last night in a great semi-circle in an
' effort to catch sight of the NC-3, or
pick up radio distress signals. The
high winds and choppy seas prevail
ing made the work of the rescue party
,. most difficult.

AMERICAN AND TEUTON
VIEWS ARE OPPOSITE
(Tampa Tribune)
Frank Graham, proprietor of the
Florida News Company, Franklin and
Madison streets, lost his temper last
night for the first time in his life, and
apparently in a good cause.
A stranger with a Teutonic look
and accent stopped at his stand dur during
ing during the rush hour and asked if he
kept "all the home papers." To this
question Graham replied affirmative affirmatively,

"What difference does that make
as long as you get the money?" ask asked

Graham's only reply was to make a
lunge at his Teutonic visitor, whom
he escorted to the edge of the side sidewalk

more force than dignity.
Two circumstances saved the man
from further pummelling.' The first
was that he was accompanied by a

conversation and did not understand
the motive for the fight grabbed Gra Graham

The man who had asked for the
German newspaper adjusted his
crumpled collar and walked away
without his identity having been
learned by anyone. Several soldiers
and sailors witnessed the incident and
might have taken some action had it
not been for the child which accom
panied the man.
ARE NOT SO INDIGNANT
Evidence is coming out of Germany
that the common people are not so
indignant at the peace terms as they
are reported to be. There is reason
to believe that a great many are
anxious to have the treaty signed so
they can resume work.

SUNDAY'S SING
The community sing which was held

behalf of the Salvation Army drive,
while not as largely attended as some

who were not there were the losers by
not hearing the able addresses by
Dr. H. F. Watt and Dr. Robert Fer Ferguson
guson Ferguson of Reddick. Dr. Watt was con.
nected with a field hospital while in
France and Dr. Ferguson with an am
bulance corps and dressing station.
Their talks were most interesting,
being a little different from what has
been heard, as both were in the medi medical
cal medical corps and showed clearly the ef
fects of the war. Mr. W. T. Gary
spoke very briefly. He paid the med
ical workers a beautiful tribute and
the Salvation Army, a sister society
o the one he was connected with, the
Y. M. C, received warm words of
commendation. All of the speakers
gave the highest praise to the work
of the Salvation Army. Mr. W. W.
Stripling, in a brief but eloquent talk
urged the people of Marion county to
continue to hold their good record by
going over the top in this drive as
they have in all others. The meeting
was in charge of Mr. Frank Harris,
county chairman of this drive, who
very ably presided and introduced the
speakers and also made an eloquent
plea for the Salvation Army. Mrs.
Harry Black delighted her audience
with a very appropriate song, "The
Americans Are Coming." The Meet Meeting

Mr. W. D. Carn and singing America

anthem.

DUG UP MORE SNAKES
THAN HE KILLED

Our energetic and public-spirited
friend, L. H. Chazal, secretary of the
Board of Trade, in Saturday's Star,
read us a severe lecture on an article
published the preceding day about the
possible removal of the capital to
Ocala, and in said lecture branched
off to rebuke us about several other
matters, more or less dimly connect connected
ed connected with what he considered the main
offense.
In his lecture, Mr. Chazal denies
that Ocala is independent, accuses us
of opposing capital removal, and
says the Star has adopted a depre deprecatory
catory deprecatory attitude toward tourists, which
attitude is shared by the town.
It is not our policy to refuse any
article criticising anything that has
appeared in the paper, so we printed
Mr. Chazal's little piece, but it did
not help the town any, for it will
cause anybody who reads it to adopt
an erroneous idea is regard to the
Star's position and the sentiment of
the people.
The reason for our editorial of last
Friday was set forth in its first par paragraph,
agraph, paragraph, which said: ..
"As several of our contemporaries
are making remarks, some of them
spiteful, about Ocala in connection
with Representative Phillips' bill to
remove the state capital from Talla Tallahassee
hassee Tallahassee to this city, the Star would
like to set forth the true position of
its town."
The Star does not oppose removing
the capital to Ocala. It will do any anything
thing anything honorable in its power to bring
the capital here. But we look at this
matter from a different standpoint
from, that taken by a good many of
our contemporaries. Our principal
reason for desiring the capital re removed
moved removed is because we think it would
be better for Florida if the capital
was in Ocala, or in Gainesville, or in
Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Palatka,
Orlando, or in Tampa, or in Lake Lakeland.

those towns against Tallahassee.

misrepresented thei city.
Why should thej Star sit still and
allow its town to be misrepresented?
If a majority of the members of the
legislature have a good reason for de desiring
siring desiring the capital to be removed to
Ocala, they are going to vote that
way, and it is rather childish in any
person to say that the Star's edi

torial of Friday would cause them to

change their minds. In the course
of the said editorial we said Ocala
would like to have the capital and do
anything honorable to obtain it. Mr.

Chazal's criticism would lead an out outsider
sider outsider to think that Ocala was or

would be perfectly crazy to obtain the
capital and would do anything hon

orable or dishonorable to have it lo located
cated located here. Of course, we know he
meant nothing of the sort, but if we
applied to him the same sort of crit

icism that he applies to us, that would

be the deduction that we would think

we could logically make.

In the course of Friday's editorial

we said:

"But this town is the most inde

pendent in Florida. It is dependent on
nothing but its own territory. It has
got along very well for three-quarters
of a century without any state or fed federal
eral federal government graft, and without
Yankee philanthropists to give it a
handout, and it can continue the per

formance."

Now this is a sentiment that we

have expressed several times before,
and it has always found favor here,

and a few years ago one of the lead leading'
ing' leading' newspapers of the state congrat congratulated
ulated congratulated Ocala" because she has fought

her own battle and worked her own
way. Unless we greatly mistake, Mr.

Chazal has read our sentiments be

fore, but they never went against his

grain until last week. He expresses

his disapproval in the following par

agraph:

"It is a mistake, and a most serious

mistake, for any community to take
the position that it is independent of
the rest of the world. In this day and

time any city that thinks it can pro progress
gress progress without the aid of others is

harboring a delusion. The cities that

are going forward are the cities that
are being built by outsiders and with
outside capital. To put it another
way, they are going forward because
of new citizens and new capital."

Mr. Chazal makes the great mis-

take of thinking the words "inde "independent"
pendent" "independent" and "isolated" are synono synono-mous.
mous. synono-mous. No individual, community or
nation can live isolated. But any in individual,
dividual, individual, community or nation that
makes its own living is independent.
We have repeatedly bragged on Mar Marion
ion Marion county making its own living, and
our people, knowing it was true, have
approved of the "boast. The Star from
the day it started has tried, and in
many instances succeeded, to induce
outsiders and outside capital to come
to Marion county. It has always believed-
that the best inducement it
could offer was to tell people that this
was an independent and self-sustaining
county. Does Mr. Chazal want
us to reverse this policy?
Mr. Chazal further says:
"What is wrong with a Yankee?
What is the objection to a philan philanthropist?
thropist? philanthropist? What is the objection to
giving to a city? Why associate these
in the same sentence with graft?
Why associate the capital removal
with graft."
There is nothing wrong with a
Yankee, except that Mr. Chazal
hasn't got over considering the name
a term of reproach. -We have. We
got over it thirty years ago. In the
article Mr. Chazal refers to, we used
it as a geographical expression. If
we had said "northerner," he might
have made the same objection to it.
At one time we claimed one "Yankee
philanthropist" John B. Stetson as
a personal friend. He was a good
friend, too, and if one like him came
along and offered to found a million million-dollar
dollar million-dollar school in Ocala, we would be
among the first to welcome him. We
never said such men shouldn't come

here. We said they hadn't. And they
haven't. Every dollar for Ocala's im improvements
provements improvements has been dug out of
Oca's pockets. Nobody ever found

fault wih us for saying so before.
There is no objection to giving to a
city, provided the gift is made in the
proper spirit, and we have never said
there was. We said Ocala had never
been given anything. We should like
for Mr. Chazal to confute our state statement.
ment. statement. Neither did we associate cap capital
ital capital removal with graft. We said
Ocala had got along without any
graft. Hasn't she? If she has had
any, we would like for some well well-informed
informed well-informed person to specify it to us.
Mr. Chazal goes clear out of his
way to say:
"Ocala cannot develop independent independently.
ly. independently. If she attempts it, she will decay

in her own exclusiveness. She can cannot,
not, cannot, if she would live and grow, close
her doors to the people of any section
of the United States, your country
and mine, simply because they come
from a particular section. One of the
things, the big things, that we hoped
the world war would do was that it
would bring the people of our country
in closer touch. One of the things
that President Wilson, if I am not

mistaken, said, in a speech at At Atlantic
lantic Atlantic City, was that the building of
a national highway system would ac accomplish

We do not see any reason for luer-

of nations into this small local mat matter.
ter. matter. We are as a grain of sand on
the seashore compared with Woodrow
Wilson, but we wrote and spoke for
Americanism and against sectional sectionalism
ism sectionalism before Mr. Wilson was heard of
outside his own town, and before Mr.
Chazal was born. When our boys
began going to France, and the silly
dispute started as to whether to call
them "Sammies" or "Teddies," the
Star said, and was probably the first
southern paper to say it, that they(
should be called Yankees, and Yan Yankees
kees Yankees or Yanks has been the name
generally applied to them. Yankee is
a good, strong American word, and

no man from the North is going to be

offended by having it applied to him.
It is true that to some people Yan Yankee,
kee, Yankee, or northerner, or southerner, or
easterner, is a term of reproach, but
we are not responsible for their un unfortunate
fortunate unfortunate turn of mind.
Mr. Chazal says "Ocala cannot de develop
velop develop independently." Perhaps not,
but he will not deny that the town
has developed immensely in fifty
years, and that nearly all its develop development
ment development has been made by men born and
raised in Marion county, or men who
came here with comparatively small
means and helped to build up the
town while building up their, own
homes and fortunes.
Mr. Chazal further says:
VIn the past the Star has taken a
lather deprecatory attitude toward
the tourist. It has been the tendency
in the city. And it has been a serious
mistake."
So far as the Star is concerned, this
assertion is erroneous and most un unjust,
just, unjust, and as we have all faith in Mr.
Chazal's honesty and sense of fair fairness,
ness, fairness, we can't imagine where ho ob obtained
tained obtained this impression. The Star has
certainly done all it could to impress
on our people the necessity of trying
to induce tourists to come here. If he
will look over the files of the paper he
will find many articles to that .ef .effect
fect .effect written in the last half a dozen
years, and he won't find any to the
opposite. There are several members
of the Board of Trade who know that
we tried repeatedly last summer and
fall to induce the board to do some
effective advertising to attract tour tourists
ists tourists to come here. Mr. Chazal does
not know this, of course, as he was in
France at the time, but others know
it and know it very well.
We. don't think there is any depre deprecatory
catory deprecatory tendency in the town toward
tourists. The town is not equipped
to care for any large number of vis

itors, and it has not the attractions
the general run of tourists require.
Ocala is a city of homes, and the
great majority of the people don't
want to take .strangers into their
homes. They are not to blame for
that.
About 3000 tourists passed thru
here last winter more than we have
had for many years. The Board of
Trade did nothing to attract them
here. They nearly all came either be because
cause because of the Dixie Highway or the
Oklawaha river trip. Some of them
stopped in town for several days,
some for weeks, but we are not aware
of the Board of Trade doing any anything
thing anything to make Ocala pleasant for them
while they were here. What was done
was done by individuals and the
Womans' Club, and the Star helped
the Woman's Club all it could. The
Star did a lot of things, too many to
mention, to make individual tourists
like Ocala, and we are willing to bet
Mr. Chazal that he can't produce any
one of them who saw anything in the
paper that aggrieved him.
Mr. Chazal closes with the follow following:
ing: following: "Ocala has got to have her,share of
the hundreds of thousands who are
coming into Florida from other states.
And she will not get them if the Star
or any paper or person makes such
statements as made in your editor editorial."
ial." editorial." Mr. Chazal may calm his fears.
Very few tourists ever see the local
papers of little towns like Ocala.
Those who pass thru here are con

cerned about the roads, the hotels,
and the railroad and boat connections,
but we doubt that it ever occurs to

them to ascertain public sentiment.

I hey buy the big city dailies and read
the press dispatches, market reports,
etc., but pay very little attention to

local affairs and local opinions, even

of Jacksonville and Tampa, let alone
Ocala, Orlando or Lakeland.
That class of tourists who are bet better
ter better known as winter residents, who
stay for weeks and months, the class
the Star is most desirous of obtaining
for our. city, generally read the local
papers, and that class has never seen
anything in the Star to offend it. In
his article of Saturday, Mr. Chazal
wrote more to discourage tourists
from coming here than we have writ written
ten written in all our life, for he has very
emphatically said that Ocala does not
want them.
In conclusion, we assure Mr. Cha

zal that:
We will be glad for Ocala to have
the capital, but we won't beg for it.
That we will be glad for anybody
to help Ocala, but we think it is per perfectly
fectly perfectly right and proper to say Ocala
can help herself.
That we will bet we love Yankees
better than he does.
That if a Stetson will build a col college,
lege, college, or a Flagler a big hotel in
Ocala, we will brag on him while he

lives and write him a nice obituary
when he dies. And he wont have to
give us a "handout," either.
That we will extend any reasonable
courtesy to a tourist, sell him a paper
for a nickel and give him a nice puff
beside. That we have performed this
stunt scores of times, but never
thought it necessary to advertise it.
That, in conclusion, if he hadn't
criticised our article, we would not
have criticised his, and consequently
both of us would have been saved a
lot of work that we don't think did
anybody any good.

FACTS ABOUT THE

By ELIZABETH TYLER

The people of the South are once
more called upon to give. This time
it is for one of the most worthy of all
causes, the Salvation Army Home
Service Fund.
When war was declared the Salva Salvation
tion Salvation Army workers went over seas
with our boys and down into the
trenches into the very Jaws of death.
They crossed the sea with our boys
with never a thought of personal In In-Jury
Jury In-Jury never dreaming of the wave of
popularity or publicity they would get
for this humble Christian eervice;
they had only one" desire and that
was to serve our boys when they most
needed friends. They spent much of
the money that it had taken them
many years to collect in small change
spent it ungrudgingly because they
saw that our boys needed it
All they asked in return was that
they be allowed by their every day
examples to teach the Christianity our
Savior taught while on earth.
Many soldiers tell of the wonder wonderful
ful wonderful work the Salvation Army has done
overseas. To me there is nothing
unusual about that work, but it is
the same kind of work and service
the Salvation Army has always given
here at home at our very own doors.
It has taken the stories told by the
returning soldiers who have come to
know the Salvation Army to bring
about this wave of popularity for the
Salvation Army, but the Army has al always
ways always worked and served as they are
now serving.
It reaches a class of people that
no other religious organization can or
attempts to reach. The men and
women that are too ragged and mis miserable
erable miserable to attend the services at our
churches they reach the poverty
that hides and shrinks in the by-ways
of life. A man or woman can never
fall so low, but that this army of
earnest workers stretch out a helping
hand to them. Every man, woman and
child in America should contribute to
this Home Service fund because there
is not a corner in our beloved land,
however remote, that does not receive
direct benefit from the Salvation
Army, for fifty per cent of the popu population
lation population of the cities is made up of
people that come from small towns
and from those remote sections and
ninety per cent of the boys and girls
that appeal to the Salvation Army
for assistance are those who have
come to the large cities and find them themselves
selves themselves unequal to the struggle for ex existence.

Heroes Explain Vhy
In the following words Private
Frank Ivy, of Goldsboro, N. C, sums
up what he has seen of the work of
the Salvation Army abroad. Private
Ivy, who was a member of Company
K, 167th Infantry, was severely wound wounded
ed wounded in the early battles of Soissons.
While he lay on his cot at Fort Mc McPherson
Pherson McPherson Hospital, waiting time to
heal the wounds inflicted by the
Huns, he was at his happiest period,
as he discussed the work of the Sal Salvation
vation Salvation Army, both here and abroad.
When he learned of the coming
drive In May for additional funds for
this great cause, the wounded hero
said: "I hope I am out by that time,
and, if I am not, there are thousands
who would go far and wide to tell the
people of this country Just what the
Salvation Army stands for, what It did
for its boys under shell fire, in the
hospitals, and, in fact, everywhere we
went, the Salvation Army worker was
bound to be there. This is no adver advertising
tising advertising campaign, for all the boys will
have to do Is to tell the truth of this
great work and the great American
public will do the rest."
Sergeant George Henderson, of
Jacksonville, Fla., who was wounded
at Chateau Thierry, is following the
example of Private Cook and organ organizing
izing organizing the discharged soldiers of Flor Florida
ida Florida to put over the Salvation Army
Drive in his home State, as the Sal Salvation
vation Salvation Army so ably assisted to put
over drive after drive in the cruelest
days of the great world war.
, "We doughboys know how to help,
and we are going to do it," says Ser Sergeant
geant Sergeant Henderson. "The Salvation
Army cared not for shot or shell, for
their only thought was to aid others
in spite of the personal risk to them themselves.
selves. themselves. They started in the war with
us at our training camps in America
and remained with us until we put
the Hun back on his own ground and
started him on the greatest retreat
that a losing army was ever forced to
make.
Debt of Gratitude
a America will never know the grati gratitude
tude gratitude she owes to the Salvation Army
and the number of lives that this little
sturdy band of workers saved by their
fearless actions in the greatest of al
fights."
Hundreds of statements have come
to our office from those who know
of the Salvation Army's work in the
trenches.
There will be no vital change in the
administration of the work. The Tam Tambourine
bourine Tambourine Girl will no longer circulate
among us, however, except at devo devotional
tional devotional services. The big drive is for
funds to replace this smiling lassie
and release her from collecting small

a work of mercy. The people of
America will be asked to contribute
once each year instead of all the year
round to the Salvation Army and per perpetuate

Some of the most prominent men in

She didn't finish, for the boy had

three doughboys, pals of the corporal
They tried to keep in the background
' but their eyes were glued on her face.
Everyone In the pitting room sat al
attention. There are no English
speaking men or women out of uni uniform,
form, uniform, in the Third Army area. Yet
here was a woman in civilian clothes
Mothers are unheard of with the army
But this was a mother, everyone knew.
After awhile someone found out
about this mother.
Had Been Interned During War.
She and her husband, who wert
born In Germany, but had been nat naturalized,
uralized, naturalized, lived In San Francisco. Be Before
fore Before the war they left for Welsbaden,
Germany, that their Invalid daughtei
might have treatment at this famom
health resort.
They brought their other chlldres
with them. One was Walter, a small
boy, and the other was Ralph, now
Corporal Stepp of the American Army
When the war was declared thej
sent Ralph back to America, becausi
he was of military age, and they did
not want him to fight for the kaiser
Then America entered the war.
Mrs. Stepp Mrs. Anna Stepp she La
told this part of the story :
"Until a month ago I hadn't heard
from Ralph for two years and a half
even before America got In the wai
mall was held up. I didn't know
whether he was In the army or not
but I was sure he was, because well
because he Is an American." Her
she stopped a minute to smile up at
him.
! "After awhile We heard from some
friends that he was In the army and
that he had come over here. That was
all I ever knew. It's nearly five yean
since I have seen him I
"Of course It was awfully hard 1
couldn't get' word to him and h
couldn't to' me. My husband used to
tell me It wouldn't help Ralph any for
me to cry. Z tried not tobefore the
rest of them anyway. My daughter
got worse steadily she is no better.
We couldn't get the proper food for
her after awhile. And she hated to
see me worried about Ralph, so I used
to try to keep up beforo them.
"Last January my husband came to
Coblenz about his citizen papers. An
American soldier In Ralph's company
who was In the office heard his name
and asked him if he was any relation
to Ralph. He didn't tell him Ralph
was In Coblenz, but went after Ralph.
He didn't tell Ralph his father was
here. When they met they couldnt
believe their eyes.
"Ever since then I have been trying
to see Ralph. He couldn't come to
Welsbaden because It was out of the
American area, and I couldn't get
through tmtH today more than two
months."
They asked her tf her Ralptb had
changed much In all that time.
"Oh, yes very much. But do you
know, I think it Is because all that
long time when I didn't know where
he was or how he was I got In Che
habit of thinking of him as he was
when he was a baby I kept seeing
him as 'a baby and remembering the
way he felt when he was little. Isn't
that queer? And now look at him P
And the corporal tried not to see the
adoration in her eyes.
"Fire years Is a long time to wait
to see jour bey" she murmured, and
kept her eyes on him. Again she had
forgotten the people around her.
The corporal cleared his throat
"This ts why I ask.d yon If you could
keep my mother. Miss Woodsmall,
dldnt want her to cooae -unless she
had a good place to stay. Ah.
thanks awfully."
And that Is the story of how the
Hostess House happened to entertain
.the only known A. E. F. mother who
has visited the Army of Occupation.
