THE FOURTH LOAN
Chicago Is Doing Nobly in Responding
to Uncle Yarn's Call for the
Fourth Liberty Loan
Indications That the City Will Do Better This
Time Than It Ever Did Before;
Chlcngo Iihh started In woll on tlio
work of doing her part for tlio Fourth
At tlio loan headquarters It was re
ported that already $22,000,000 had
been listed and that sales not reported
from tho varlouH wards should bring
the total to dato to ninout $35,000,000.
Subscriptions from some of tho larg
est concerns nro not In yet. Thoso arc
looked for soon to swell tho totals.
Charlos W. Isolds, chairman of the
Chicago and Cook county committee,
while- encouraged with tho showing
made so far, had this to say:
"Wo mustn't forgot for a momoni
our quota Is tv.ico as much as It was
last ttmo. Wn must work'coasolr-pnlv.
' to got It. I ImVo libartl pir.io'.it -ay'
thoro was not much uso In striving
hard to put over this loan bocatiBO tho
end of tho war Is In sight. This, of
course, Is palpably absurd."
A signed statement by Charles II.
Schwcppe, director of tho Sovonth fed
oral reserve district, lieadod "Ho (Had,
but Not Satisfied," said:
"Things are coming our way. 'Bui
garla Quits; Turkoy Next,' Hay tho
headlines. Wo Imaglno an Invasion of
Austria, Isolation of Gormnny, panic
In tho Kaiser's realm, speedy victory.
"Yes, tho news Is cheering, but Bliull
wo lot It drug us Into carelessness?
Shall wo hear people saying, 'Tho war i
Is won. They can get along nicely
without our money now?'
"In this possibility America facos n
porll as great aB Oorinany's. Falluro
to subscrlho fully tho fourth Llborty
Loan would bo nB groat n disaster to
tho United States as tho blow Gor
many suffered In tho loss of Bulgaria.
"Germany could right on for months
without a slnglo ally, holding short
ened dofonsos. Sho could oven de
liver a shock to tho nlliod linos that
might moon dofeat to us. This will
happen If thoro develops a weak spot
on tho battle front or horo. Our
weak spot now threatens to bo ovor
confidence. "Buy bonds Just as though the
enemy wero at tho gates of Paris.
Lend your money for an Incalculably
long war. Ilomombor: It must bo
comploto victory or none."
