Let Your Dollars
THIS war is a test of a democratic Govern
ment It is also a trial of democracy as to
its fitness to survive. A small group of auto
crats within whose hands ar? the resources of
Central ILurope are attaching the principle of
the right of people to govern themselves. Should
the United States and its allies fail in this war
there will not remain on earth a people absolutely indepen
dent of the dictation of the Teutonic empires, organized for
military efficiency and bent on using that efficiency for the
purpose of forcing their will upon the world. Let the Teu
tons triumph and the world will not be a safe place for
democracy, and to maKe it such a safe place, is not only
the expressed purpose of the United States in taKing up
the challenge of the Huns, but also the purpose of the other
powers who tooK up the challenge when Germany sent it
forth three years and a half ago, and who for three years
and a half have borne the burden of the conflict
For this reason the PRESENT BUSINESS OF THE
UNITED STATES IS WAR-war to exterminate or
ganized unrighteousness and to establish peace
among the nations of the world.
The Government has perfected a plan which
will enable all of our people without exception, to
taKe a definite part in winning the war.

One of the first great steps called for by the Govern
ment is-SAVING. The American people must cease to
require all of the pleasant and comfortable luxuries which
they consumed before the war, the production of which
calls for the energy of millions of men and women. These
men and women must devote themselves to the production
of the things which are needed to win the war. This is the
Key to the present situation; it rests in the hands of the
average man, woman and child in every state in the Union#
by refraining from everything not absolutely necessary to
health, and efficiency, to release strong arms for the pro
duction of materials of war to support our army and navy.
Idle dollars are SLACKER dollars, but dollars spent for
unnecessary articles, the production of which require labor
and materials which the government needs to save the lives
of our fighting men, are TRAITOR dollars.
