One of the caves measured 400 to 300 yards and has a dcjzen galleries through which an automobile can pass. An entire German battalion was made prisoner in one of the caves, while in another a colonel with his entire staff was taken. All the caves were defended by machine guns that were raised to the mouth of the cave to be fired when the French approached. This sort of resistance was particularly stubborn at the top of Mont des Signes, where the French troops exterminated the garrison, which belonged to the Fifth Prussian Guards divisions. They also occupied the chateau northeast 'of Vauxaillon definitely after It had been taken and retaken several times. All the stone quarries and caves that were not defended to the last by the enemies were mine quarries before the war and were abandoned.

Or are we pulling in opposite directions? Organization is the great comniunity need of the day. Without organization men and women are apt to smk below the level of mules.! Even mules, in times of danger or panic, have been known to co-operate; They sometimes kick together. If it were givien to mules to think, they would wonder at the ways of men. That men and women, living and working in the same community, should refuse to co-operaite, is one of the riddles of civilization. The only benefits worth having are the benefits we can share with our neighbors. Individual benefits count for little. It is the Co-operative effort that brings everlasting good. Good roads, factories, better schools, good markets can only be secured when all pull together. Every man, woman and child in, this community should give one hour each day to community work. But, don't wait for someone else to start it. There is work for you lit) do. B�h gin with yourself. m. 41 ;
