2017-08 Long arithmetic progression

Does there exist a constant \(\varepsilon>0\) such that for each positive integer \(n\) and each subset \(A\) of \(\{1,2,\ldots,n\}\) with \(\lvert A\rvert<\varepsilon n\), there exists an artihmetic progression \(S\) in \(\{1,2,\ldots,n\}\) such that \( S\cap A=\emptyset\) and \(\lvert S\rvert >\varepsilon n\)?
