ENLIST YOUR DOLLAR8 FOR THE
PERIOD OF THE WAR.
By W. O. McAdoo,
Secretary of the Treasury.
Again tho American peoplo have tho
privilege of lending their monoy, their
savings, to thoir Government for tho
purposo of making tho lives and lib
erties of every American sate, and of
securing tho Uvea and liberties of tho
gallant nations which fight with us.
Thoso bonds boar 4 intorest,
they are exempt from all Federal,
Stato and local taxation, except tho
Federal super-lncomo taxes and In
heritance taxes. They aro duo ten
years aftor their dato. Thoy aro the
safest investment in tho world and
thoy bear a rato of Interest adequately
nnd sonorously remunerative. Tho
money derived from theso bonds will
bo used to supply our soldiers and
sailors with the food, clothing, guns,
ammunition and other essentials
which thoy must hnvo It they ara to
win this war; to pay tho wages ot
labor of thoso who aro engagod In
manufacturing thoso essontlal sup
plies; to pay for tho raw materials
and the farm products and tho count
less other things that enter into tho
war program of a great nation.
Wo must not, wo cannot consldor
tho purchaso ot Government bonds as
a purely commercial or business trans
action. War is not business, although
tho Nation's business now is war.
War is tho death strugglo for the prin
ciples and Ideals for which a Nation
fights. Business must be adjusted to
war and overy ordinary rule of busi
ness must be modified, altered or dis
carded, If necessary, to meet tho su
preme need ot tho Nation In such a
time. National necosslty is tho su
premo law ot war, and tho first duty
ot overy citizen Is to subordinate him
self and ovory interest to that supremo
To lend one's money on safe secur
ity is at best a small contribution
compared with tho sacrifice tho dying
soldier makes, tho sacrlflco tho widow
makes, the sacrifice tho mother and
father ot a doad hero make. Patri
otism must at all times bo tho main
spring of action not only In tho pur
chase of bonds, but In ovory other
thing tho good citizen does in tho sup
port ot this Government in time ot
for County Treasurer.
Aliens resident within Cook county

ot filing declarations, nor is tho alion
required to rosldo In this country any
