An Appeal For War Savin
To the People of Edgefield Count
The cloud of militarism which f
the past 30 or 40 years menaced E
rope, began, a little more than ^fo
years ago, to assume proportio
which indicated a world-wide natui
So far reaching was it that -9 mont
ago its shadow of gloom covered o
entire fair land; at times it wou
grow darker, again the rifts wou
show the silver lining until the ll
hour of the 11th day of the ll mon
of 19IS the silver lining broke awi
and ^the golden beams of Peace (
Earth forever dispelled the Prussk
Hohenzollern German militaris
from the nations of the earth.
Directly we did not seem to be i
danger but indirectly even our vei
existence was threatened. In the sig]
ing of the armistice we have nume
ous reasons for rejoicing and thank
giving, and it is a matter of fi
greater importance than many of or
citizens may think, but in the midi
of our elation we must not forge
that our country is still in a state c
war and will remain so for month
yet. Our once enemies of the Centn
Alliance will have to be kept uncie
martial law until some stable or pei
manent peace terms may be negotial
ed .and indemnities and reparatio:
for damages fixed and levied.
In all this "our boys over there
will doubtless exert the greatest in
fluence when they will garrison forts
munition factories etc. and do polio
duties in all the important cities o:
our enemies, for without their pres
' ence the armistice with its term
would be a mere scrap of paper.
.Now to keep our army of two oi
more million in Europe means ar
enormous expense. The only differ
euee between the cost for the month:
they will yet remain over there ant
the corresponding number of month;
in the past to this date is the ammu
nition and guns.
The men will have to be cared foi
in every way as in the past, for food,
clotning, hospitals, Y. M. C. A etc.,
and to do this our governmnt de
pends upon the bonds you buy, your
donations to the United War Work,
and on the pledges you made and are
expected to make for W. S. S. Your
j ' piedgc for W. S. S. was a most sol
emn obligation. It was made more
solemn and sacred by the fact that
the government asked for no scour
ity to guarantee the payment. Now
the time has come to fulfill the prom
ise. Are you doing it? Let's see.
It will be of interest to you to
know that the quota for this county
for the June campaign of the W. S.
S. was $220,000 and during that cam
paign of the W. S. S. 3,94G whites
pledged $177,945.00 and 3.G9S col
oreds pledged $51,100.00 makin;; a
total of 7,G44 'pledges aggregating
$229,045.00 thereby exceeding our
quota by $9,045.00.
Now are you filling these pledges?
The total amount for the year to
date received for stamps by the post
offices of the county aggregate only
$104,000 face value and allowing
for stamps purchased from postoffices
in adjourning counties indicates thai
only about one half of our pledges
have been redeemed. This is not a
very creditable evidence of lo;, any
at home against that of the boys in
France. Only a month and a half of
1LH8 remains and the June pledges
not half paid. See to it that you fill
your pledge by December 1st
During the first week in December
our people will be called upon lo com
plete the year's quota. The amount
that will be called for in December
will be $333,000.?That will make the
quota for this county for this year
$501,000. In a few days ear ls will
be mailed to every subscriber ol' W.
S. S. asking if you have filled your
pledge and what additional amount
you will pledge. Each card will have
a return caid attached which you
are earnestly requested to fill out,
sign and return to the'County Chair
man. It is hoped that every subscrib
er will purchase his W. S. S. before
he receives these cards that he may
so report it on the return care!.
The kaiser loki the Ambassador
General before America entered the
war that "he would take no foolish
ness from America after thc war."
He kept his promise and ran away
carrying the crown prince and his
chief of staff with him. Fill your
pledges and let's catch 'cm.
