WHERE BRITISH BLASTED WAY TO VICTORY Bv
mashing through the most important itronghold on the Cer
man line in Belgium, the British are now in position to domi
nate from the Wyttchaete ridge and to threaten all that ter
ritory containing France' industrial activity south of the Bel
gian border. Lille (1), six miles from the British trenches,
and Turcoing and Roubaix (2), all menaced by this drive,
are the centers of this rich field. Warneton (3), where Ger
man reserves are concentrating, is their headquarters for this
sector. The new German line of defense here is based on the
line Commines-Zonnebeke (4).

Club Women Grow Wrathy When
One Member Opposes Buying Bonds
Miss Katherine Worley, 819 Omaha
National Bank building, prominent
member of the Omaha Woman's club,
threw a bomb into the morning meet
ing called to determine how much
money the club would invest in Lib
erty bonds by registering the first
public opposition to the project in
It si bad business for the club to
buy Liberty bonds," declared Miss
Worley. I am not anxious tor war.
I believe in conserving our money at
home to take care of our boys when
they come back. Buying Liberty
bonds is not the only patriotic thins
we, as club women, can do. We can
help the Red Cross, in canning and
the conservation of food."
Club Women Amazed.
Club women sat in astonishment.

of "Trcasonl" were heard on every

president, arose. "We must do what
the government has asked us to do.
The call has come for money. We
must give it for the success of man
kind. Holding the money until the
boys come home would be wrong,"
We can do our part to help
shorten the wr by advancing the gov

"It's not only our duty, it's a privi

crisis," said Mrs. Harriet MacMurphy.
Should Double Amount.
"We should double the amount
recommended by the directory. Let's
buy $1,000 worth of bonds, instead
of $500," advocated Mrs. Charles
The argument waxed more stormy
when Mrs. C. W. Hayes, member of
the Nebraska Peace society, raised
the question of the legality of the
"To be legal, a special meeting of
this club should be announced in the
public press three days before. This
one was only made public yester

porters. Miss Worley modified her
position by sayini she opposed the
purchase of the hopds because the
funds to be used would have to be
taken frcm the building fund. "I
don't like to see the money taken
from the building fund. The money
was raised for this specific purpose
and there are many of us who want
to see that building erected."

Baltimore Feds Drop
Suit Against Magnates
Philadelphia, lune 15. Convinced
that Organized base ball had entered
nto no conspiracy to wreck its busi-
ess, the Baltimore Federal league
club today dropped its $900,000 anti
trust damage suit against the Ameri
can and National leagues, the Na
tional commission and other defend
ants. When the United States district
court opened for the fifth day of the
trial, Stuart S. Janney, chief counsel
for the Baltimore club, addressing
Judge Dickinson, said:
"After a full consideration of the
case altogether by counsel for the
plaintiff, conditions have arisen which
make us desire to discontinue it. I
desire to ask leave of the court, there
fore, formally to file a motion of dis
continuance. I would say that there
has been no settlement of the case."
Presidents Johnson of the Ameri
can league, Tener of the National
and Chairman Herrmann of the Na
tional commission expressed their
giatification at the outcome of the
case. All said they knew nothing of
the intention of the Baltimore club
to drop the suit until they entered the
court room today.
"It's a vindication for Organized
base ball," said President Tener.
Half of Women in U. S. Are
Flappers, Says Mrs. Robins
Chicago, June 15. Fifty-five per
cent of the wome:. of the United
States are "flappers," according to
Mrs. .'.aymond Robins of th; womap's
committee of the National .ncil of
Mrs.. Robins' definition of i. "flap
per" is a woman who does n. w.rk
women of all kinds who live at
1 une and are supported by their rela
tives. She hopes to recruit this class into
war service after the registration of
women has been accomplished by the
Women's National Council.
"We want to recruit the 'flappers,'"
Mrs. Robins said. "We want them to
fill the places of the men who have
gone to war. The 'flappers' are the
nation's green reserve fo-ce of
women. I belrve they will volun
teer their services."
