By Associated Press.
Washington, July 6 General
Tershing's communique today gave
the following account of artillery
operations on the Maine on July 1
"There were several indications of
hits being made by our artillery on
the ammunition dumps. One of these
occurred late in the evening, July 1,
when a latge blaze was seen in the
sky and a heavy explosion was heard
from' a point which had just been
shelled by our artillery. Later, in the
same vicinity, an occasional glow was
seen and reports were heard. Another
(explosion, probably of an ammunition
,lump, occurred at about the same time
'inv another locality,' where a bright
light was at firit observed, followed
directly by a loud explosion.
"In the early morning of July 2
there was still another report of an
, explosion. Our guns were playing on
this particular spot at the time and
the report, the smoke which imme
diately arose, the high shooting
flames and the bursting of cartridges
are evidence that this was still an
other ammunition dump. Still Snotlier
large fire, accompanied by several ex
plosions, was observed. This was
probably an ammunition dump struck
by French shells.
Bombed by Planes.

"In Lorraine from noon"une 30 to

positions opposite Badonvillers. The
enemy'i artillery fire was light and

use of some shrapneT and gas.

out in history as one of the greatest
achievements of the war. The bear

war programme is supremely impor
tant. There is no doubt in mv mind
that the extent of it, the meaning of
it, and the future possibilities of it
should be made clear to the public,
both here and in the United States.

be brought thousands of miles from

capacity of shipping facilities which,
even in the most favorable circum

there anything like sufficient railway
facilities to accommodate the vast
stream of men and materials which
must flow steadilly in, with constant
ly, increasing volume, from the date
when the first detachment of United
States soldiers landed on French soil.
At the same time, one must realize
that, from the moment war was de
clared, America itself was rapidly re
solving into a huge engine of war.
With raw materials, industries, coal,
and railways, all put quickly under
government control, and the prin
cipal forces of the country each day
becoming more centralized for the
sole purpose of multiplying the out
put of war requirements, the pressure
toward France increased with start

only by the utmost limit of available
shipping space. That situation has

Word Symbolizing the
True Spirit of Liberty
Service and sacrifice on the altar of country means
not duty but privilege to the true American. This is the
sentiment of W. J. d Winter, 4949 North Thirty-sixth
street, who is a winner in The Bee's Americanism con
test. Following is the text of his answer :
Jo be a true American means to be endowed with the priceless gift
of Liberty, to be imbued with those ideals that animated the founders of
our independence. To a true American, liberty is the essence of life. De
prive him of it and you have dealt a death-blow to the root of his existence.
Americanism is the opposite of servitude and darkness. It is the emblem
of tolerance, religious and political. It knows no potentates, for it is the
magic word, symbolizing the spirit of a sovereign people, dedicated to the
promulgation of the principle that justice is right and that there should
pt equality before the law.
t lo render service or sacruiceis not a uuiy lmpuscu, out a privilege con
ferred upon the true American. His motto is: "Pro patria c mundo."
The hour has now struck when America is beckoning its loyal sons and
daughters to manifest their allegiance by deeds and to demonstrate that
the sinister designs of a barbarous adversary shall not prevail and that the
principles of liberty and toleration are destined to endure throughout the
Shall we heed the call?
Fear not, Columbia K Enshrined within the hearts of thy children, there
dwells the unconquerable spirit of freedom, which tolerates no submission.
Our ancestors did not shed their blood for naughtl As faithful guardians,
we shall be loyal to our trust We shall preserve the blessings of liberty
and render them more secure for our posterity 1
Legions o minute-men are heeding the call. America shall remain free,
now and forever, by the will of a" sovereign people. Its torch of liberty shall
ever blaze the path of the races of the earth seeking independence. In the
course of unborn centuries, her name shall be inscjrjjjed upon the record of
time as a "guardian of national honor," a protector of the weak, a ''refuge
unto the oppressed."
Such is the doctrine of True Americanism.
every possible kind of aid and advice
is one of the many bright chapters in
this story of achievement.
This was the only substantial ad
vantage the Americans had. Their
handicaps were multifold, their task
colossal. How splendidly they at
tacked their problems and conquered
one after another of the obstacles
which confronted them stands out in
clear perspective as one passes along
their great lines of communication to
day. Sixty days more will see the
greater part of the whole vast scheme
in full operation. Even now the
completed part of the system is equal
to all demands made upon it, and
with labor and materials available in
fairly equable proportions, as they are
nnw the actual construction work is
going ahead more rapidly than ever.
Docks and Warehouses.
What the American forces in
France have accomplished thus far is
almost incredible. For instance, out
of the waste lands adjacent to an old
French port they have constructed a
splendid line of modern docks, where
every day now ships are pouring forth
their cargoes, of men and war ma
terials, cars and machinery. This dock
system is finished. It supplements the
old FrcnCh dock system in the town,
where still more ships are constantly
discharging American cargoes. A
huge new warehouse system at this
point is also nearing completion; even
now it U able to take care of the great
flood of supplies which is constantly

In addition to the new docks, ware
houses and extensive railway yards
(these latter have a trackage of near
ly 200 miles), work is well advanced
on the new car assembly shop, where
already, when I saw it in its incom
pleted state, 20 odd freight cars a
day, of three different designs, were
being turned out and put into im
mediate service. Another assembly
plant has been constructed at a
different point to handle all-steel
cars, which are transported here from
America "knocked down" that is, in
section, in order to economize ship
ping space. At this plant these steel
cars are now being assembled at the
rate of a completed train a day, and
plans are rapidly culminating for a
large extension of the work. Here,
too, a huge camp has been built for
the negro stevedores, also a remount
camp, and two big rest camps, each
providing for many thousands of
American soldiers, who march thence
from the boats, to be sifted and re
arranged for dispatch to the various
training camps farther inland. Not
far from here, work on a new 20,000
bed hospital is forging ahead, and 30
days from now it will -be virtually

In this same section is an immense
new artillery camp all ready for the
several brigades of artillery which
were expeted when I was there, and,
like the hospital enterprise, it is in
strong hands, and promises well. It
includes a large remount camp, in
which were several thousand horses
at the time of my visit. The work
in this section, which is typical of that
at all the other base ports I visited,
is being vigorously and intelligently
directed. - Strong executives are' in
charge, and the spirit of the workers
is excellent throughout. Everywhere
the Americans are realizing that they
have "caught up with themselves,'
and now that they can visualize the
completion of what a few months i.ga
looked so much like an impossible
undertaking they are buoyed up,
happy, and inspired by their success;
they have conquered obstacles and
overcome conditions which only
great ability and indomitable spirit
ccjuld possibly surmount.
One realizes, after inspecting the
character and extent of the work at
the several base norts which the
,t Americans have taken over, that here
lies the strength of their future
scheme of operations. These port
schemes are great affairs today; but
they are so worked out as to be ca
pable of almost unlimited expansion.
This is highly important, for the war
developments of the past two months
have clearly pointed the way towards
greater unity of effort by the allies,
and greater mobility of action by the
French, British and American fight
ing forces. The tendency is toward
a pooling both of effort and supplies,
the natural outcome of centralization
under a single comiriand. This may
easily resolve the American base
ports in France into main reserve cen
ters, from which their channels of dis
tribution will radiate directly to rail
heads on all parts of the front, in
stead of mainly through the inter-
which are now being constructed.
These latter, in that event, would be
utilized in connection with the great
and ever growing training centers
through which, for a long time to
come, the American army of 2,000,000
or more, in the making, must pass.
As at the base ports, so I found
conditions all along the hundreds of
miles of the American lines of com
munication: everywhere the same kind
of capable men in command, the same
splendid spirit and energy, the same
steady progress toward the ends in
view, the same optimism as to the
quick and successful working out of
the plans as a whole.

STORE FURS NOW
THIS IS LAST CALL
Dresher Brothers' Superb Concrete
and Steel Fur Storage Vault!
Meet Every Demand for
You Risk Big Spoilage If You Don't
Send in Your Furs Before An
other Day Elapses.
If course, if you DON'T value your
furs much, it is all well and good to
run your own risk; in that case keep
the furs about your home during the
hot summer months; you, like many
others, might consider it protection
enough to sprinkle a few camphor
balls over 'em. Yes, madade, invite
the moths to hold continuous fox
;rots and one-steps over the beauti
'ul silken like surface of your best
pieces. Or, perhaps, you are a great
admirJr of nice bald batches and
round holes in the furs. Moths can
easily create this condition for you.
If your furs have NO value be as
careless as you like.
BUT, if you are fully aware how
precious good furs are these days, you
will immediately make up a bundle
of all you possess and have a man
call for them from the plant of
Dresher Brothers, the Immense Clean
ers and Dyers, at 2211-2217'Farnam
Do this at once. It's high time.
In fact, this is the "last time" this
season that Dresher Brothers will re
mind you of the matter. Once in
Dreshers' immense concrete and steel
storage vaults nothing short of an
earthquake can injure your furs, and
Dreshers will insure them against
even the earthquake. In addition,
Dreshers will insure your furs against
fire, burglary, water or handling
damage. So you see how much better
off you are with your furs at Dresh
ers than with your furs at home.
Better have Dreshers clean the furs
before you store them; better let
Dreshers' experts effect any needed
repair. Dreshers' fur people, by the
way, will make you an attractive
price on new work if they can do
the work now, instead of waiting un
til the busy fall season starts out.
Remember this is the "last call."
Phone Tyler 345 for a Dresher
man or leave your work at the plant,
at Dresher The Tailors, 1515 Far
nam St., or at one of the Dresher
branches in the Burgess-Nash or
Brandeis Stores. Dreshers pay par
cel post or express charges one way
on any shipment out of town. Adv.
