THE ENEMY OFFENSIVE

On the morning of March 21, the
Germans began their attack from the
vicinity of Arrays, on the north, to La
Fere, on the south, and centering
their heaviest columns against the
British forces, under General Gough,
at St. Quentin.
Staggering before the impact of
the blow, the British army fell back
rapidly. For eight days the Germans
poured through the old allied line in
an effort to, crush the British and
drive a wedge between them and the
French, who were holding the lines to
the south. Then came a period of re reaction

After a period of quiet, the Ger Germans

From June 14 until July 15 the

was from Chateau Thierry eastward,
around to the north of Rheims and
then down the Vesle river to Prunay
and from that village eastward to
Massiges. This attack at the close of
the year developed into one of the
most ambitious of German strokes.
German forces crossed the Mame
over a wide front, but were unable to
make ground against American
troops near Chateau Thierry, and
could not advance rapidly further

The rapid advance of the Allies,
however, so menaced the German

That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. .Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every

Dr. W. A. Cooper touched a fine
chord when, in a letter to the Times
yesterday, he advocated the building
of cottages at ; the state school for
girls at Ocala. The cottage plan of
caring for those unfortunate girls,
who, either from their own faults or
from the general depravity of man,
society finds it necessary to restrain,
is regarded by sociologists as by far
the best. It gives opportunity for
seeresratioh and classification that
must be bad if the best results are
to be obtained. It is not right to con
fine a girl of 12, an innocent, plastic
little thing whose chief misfortune
may be lack of proper care, with a
girl of 20 who is, perhaps, a profes professional
sional professional prostitute or near it. Tampa
Dr. Cooper's letter was not entirely
just to the school and the Times'
comment, perhaps unintentionally,
has made it worse. The Times ought
to know that a "professional prosti
tute' would not be sent to an institu institution
tion institution like the industrial school. The
inmates of the Ocala school are, or
were, mostly naughty little girls who
would have been as good as any if
they had had a fair chance. There
has been no trouble among them for
months, and many have behaved so
well that thev have been sent home.
or to homes of people who have
adopted them. As for the dormitor
ies, while there are more girls in them
than was intended, still they are not
as much crowded as army barracks.
where men live in comfort and keep
their health. Twenty girls can do
very well in a room, if it is well ven ventilated
tilated ventilated and kept clean, as these rooms
are. There is one good feature abou
the dormitories that both the doctor
and the Times overlooks, and that is
that the better behaved girls, who
have been at the institution some
time, exert a good influence on the
new comers, which would not be so

the desired results. We believe the
best plan is the one now undertaken,
viz: the cementing together of every

our legislature or railroad commis

You will if you just wait till a Chalmers drives up.

They will tell you, that, with the low-test gasoline, their cylinders fill
with carbon, the carburetor will not function, and that the power

Well they ought to know. They, are driving those cars.
The Chalmers owner is the exception to the rule.
He stops at the first pump the cheapest, heaviest, low-test gasoline.

A Song in Doubt
Is it lover or friend that she holds
I know not, but know
That she shapes me and molds me
As sculptor, the pliable clay;
My longing, it floods and enfolds me
As does earth the snow,
Or as, at the lapse of the thrush
song, the darkness the day.
Her eyes are as skies as their fairest,
Her lips are as rarest:
Anemones touched by the sun;
Ah, heart of my heart, if thou carest,
Then give me the clue t
That shall point out the radiant path pathway
