The war has left its imprint upon the entire
country, but "probably its hand has been laid most
heavily upon business, large arid small. Restrictions
and regulations, governmental orders and federal
rulings have operated to restrict progress and impede
development. This was unavoidable- The country
called and could not be denied.
But with the close of the war came the dawn
of a new era. Business at once commenced to come
bacK to, its own. Prosperity , loomed rosy upon the
horizon. To speed its arrival, to maKe certain that its
benefits are not endangered, it is necessary to pay all
the debts of war to meet the bills and wipe out the
obligations now outstanding.
That's the purpose of the Victory Liberty Loan. Your support of this loan is therefore not
only an investment in patriotism, but in prosperity itself, for an overwhelming subscription
will bring good times just that much nearer.

Success of the Victory Liberty
Loan, the fifth government war loan,
will depend largely on the savings of
the people of the nation.
To insure its success, we must save
NQWr-to practice anew the great
lessons of the war, thrift and economy.
Aside from the loss of respect for our
selves as a nation, every family will
"be unpleasantly affected, if .the com

the banks of the country, and Uncle
Sam is issuing short-term certificates
of indebtedness in anticipation of the

not speedily paid back, their resources
would be gone, and as they could make
no loans, credit operations would be

How about it? Will we finish our
Job that of paying the-war bills, as
our immortal heroes finished theirs of
vanquishing the Hun? They were not
quitters, . even when called, on to
make the supreme sacrifice. Will we
be quitters, when there is all to gain
and nothing to lose?
A little saving now is all it will cost
and this saving will mean a strongei

you be ready to do your part?
