LEJTER OF THANKS TO NEWS
The war pictures shown at the

taken: :he very front in the great
world v. r. They are authentic,
realisticTand uncensored—the only
pictures of actual fighting, the
on^ pictures covering every phase
a * ..feature of the war. They show
in pictorial form the most tragic
o chapter in the world’s history; the
grim monster destruction will he
protrayed to you mo'e forcibly than
your imagination could carry; the
wounded and dead are flashed be
fore your eyes as they fall upon
the battle field and are left until
the Red Cross reach them after the
fighting has subsided; you will see
men digging one giant grave and
the dead are buried as they are
found upon the battle field
These pictures are produced not
for the money that might be made
for a corporation’s purpose but to
more forcibly make one realize the
awfulness of war and what OUR
part will be.
They are taken by the British
Government and controlled in the
United States by Official War

poration of which Wm. K. Vander-

been overscribed without the as-
sistance of the press, is an obvious
truism The government knows it,
we know it and we trust that the
general public realizes it fully.
The publicity carried by the news-
papers, while of the greatest value
to the country at large, has also
lenefitted the press; it has en-
hanced the already high standing
and dignity of its members over
the whole country.
“We are preparing a report for
the Officials of tne Treasury De-
partment, in which we shall make
specific references and give details
of the work you have accomplish-
formation as to where the pageant
