the senate upon the suggestion of Sec
retary l.ane of the Interior department
ami Director '.Mather of the national

was early Identified with the West;
that the liberalizing Inlluences of west

created In 1800 to preserve the big trees, Sequoia Wnshlngtonlunii, which

that soldiers. Thus when the time for dbpeisal from tthe prisoners' camps
came about the German bully would turn the rest loose to find their way,
unaided and sturvlmr, into Holland ami safety, but would detain tint soldier
who bad Insulted him, nnd afterwaid secretly send the man to work In his
castle or on his estate, where ho could torture and degrade him ut will.
The second reason hlntod at by my Informant Is that these men whoso
whereabouts are hitch a mystery have, by leason of their special knowledge
or adaptability, been :ut to work on undertakings thu nature of which Ger
mans want to keep secret.
Although the uctual fighting Is over, lb. trade war with Germany Is
only .last beginning, and If any of the men In question acquired, either
accidentally or otherwise, a trade secret of any value and such u contin
gency U by no menus an impossibility lie would bo kept u prisoner In secret.
The third reason Is somewhat similar. The men are being kept prison
ers tbiotigh the instruifiontnllly of Individual olllccrs or men. They have
gained some knowledge which, If disclosed, would end III terrible retribution
for the olllccr or man concerned.

BUY FIFTH LIBERTY BONDS

About tho snddost thing in tho

years, to sovo money and then to sco
tho "rainy day fund" wlpod out by
tho failuro of Boino "wild cot" scheme.
This happens ovory day. Widows
and hnrd-workiug mon aro credulous.
They listen to tho oily promises of
"got rich quick" promoters nnd hand
ovor their savings to slick salesmen
with "bluo sky" securities promising
And when tho bolt foils out ot tho

a time when earning capacity has bo

than ever boforo.
Whatever tho temptation may have
been in tho past to do this thing,
there is no oxcuso tor it now. Hun
dreds of thousands of experienced
publicity and Investment men liavo
been at work for nearly two years,
undor the authority of tho American

more pcoplo aro saving money today
than ovor beforo in all tho history of
tho world. And moro of tho pcoplo
aro interested in tho proper handling
ot their savings accumulations. Lit
erally millions have been taught to
buy Government bonds, and they bavo
lenrnod to buy Thrift and War Sav
ings Stamps as the best posslblo way
to provent tho wasto ot fugitive

Tho Government will offer another
chance to "got vin on tho ground

From the "thrift and savings" view
