THE FOURTH LOAN
Chicago Is Doing Nobly in Responding
to Uncle "Sam's Call for the
Fourth Liberty Loan
Indications That the City Will Do Better This
Time Than It Ever Did Before;
Chicago has started in well on tho
work of doing her part for tho Fourth
At tho loan headquarters It was re
ported that alroady $22,500,000 had
boon llstod and that sales not roportcd
from tho various wards should bring
tho total to dato to amout $35,000,000.
Subscriptions from somo of tho larg
est concerns aro not in yot. Theso aro
lookod tor soon to swell tho totals.
Charles W. Folds, chairman of tho
Chicago ind Cook county coramlttoo,
whllo oncouragod with tho showing
made so far, had this to say:
"'' "Wa mnntn't fnrent for a moment
a1-" . ... t. .i
i thoro was not much uso in striving'
hard to put over thin loan because tho
end of tho war is in sight. This, of
jra7Kpur quota ib twice as mucn as u was case migni De..ane teuers or aamin-
W) courso, Is palpably absurd."
A. Bigncu hiiuuiiiuiu uy vimiiun ji.
Schwoppo, director of tho Sovonth fod
oral roservo district, hcadod "Bo dad,
but Not Satisfied," said:
"Things aro coming our way. nnl
garla Quits; Turkey Next,' say tho
hoadllnos. Wo Imaglno an Invasion of
AiiBtrln, Isolation of Gormany, panic
In tho Knisor'H realm, speedy victory.
"Yes, tho news Is cheering, but shall
wo lot It drug us Into carolessnoss?
Shall wo hear pooplo saying, 'Tho war I
Is won. Thoy can get along nicely
without our money now?'
"In this possibility Amorlca facos n
peril ns great as Germany's. Fnlluro
to subsorlbo fully tho fourth Liberty
Loan would bo ns groat a dlcastor to
tho. United States ns tho blow Ger
many sufforod In tho loss of Bulgaria.
"Gormany could light on for months
without n slnglo ally, holding short
ened dcfoiiBOS, Sho could oven de
liver a shock to tho nllled linos that
might mean defeat to us. This will
happen if thoro develops a weak spot
on tho battlo front or horo. Our
weak spot now threatens to bo ovor
confidence. "Buy bonds Just as though tho
onomy wero at tho gates of Paris.
Lend your money for nn Incalculably
long war. Romombor: It must bo
comploto victory or none."
Among tho big subscribers In Chi
