It Wm Settle Nation's War
Debts and Will Care for
Sick and Wounded.
Once in a while some one asks:
"What's the need of another Liberty
Loan now that the war is over?"
Revenue from taxes will not be suf
fice nt to pay all the bills, so the
people will be called upon to provide
the money by subscribing to govern
ient bonds. This money is going to
ay off the army of producers at home
-the farmers, merchants, manufac
turers and others.
America had just begun to fight
when the Hun decided it was time to
quit. Allied leaders expected the war
to last another year and the United
States government was turning out
ships, arms, ammunition and food to
overwhelm Germany in one big
Treasury officials have revealed
that in 1919 America would have had
a tank at the front for every seventy
five feet of line. We would have had
ten tons of mustard gas ready for
shipment for every ton Germany
could produce. Thousands of batter
ies of guns would have been in act
ion for every one America had in 1918.
Everything else was being produced
This gigantic preparation brought
an early end to the war and saved
thousands of lives. Victory Liberty
Bonds will pay for this work which
had been contracted for and was be
ing delivered when the armistice was
There are other purposes for which
money is need. Part of our army of
2,000.000 men must be kept in Europe
until the peace treaty is signed.
These soldiers must be fed. clothed
and otherwise maintained. Then they
must be brought home.
The sick and wounded must be car
ed for in hospitals. The army must
be demobilized. There are thousands
of maimed soldiers, heroes of the
great war, who must be taught self
supporting trades and given an oppor
tunity to earn their living.
This reconstruction work at home
must be carried on. The job must be
finished. The American people who
furnished the money to win the war
must supply it also to bring the na
tion hack to a peace basis.
