Your Victory Liberty Bond
Subscriptions Will Eelp Pay
for Saving of Hundreds of
Thousands of "Doughboys"
One of the features of the coming
Victory Liberty Loan is that it will,
in part, pay the coat of saving the
lives of more than 500,000 Yanks and
thousands of our allies, according to
Lewis B. Franklin, Director of the U.
?>. .War Lo?n Organisation.
"The speed and bravery of the
American doughboy affected the Ger
mans on the front line more than it

did the men at German general head
quarters," states Mr. Franklin, "but
the fact that America was preparing
for a drive on Berlin struck terror to
the general staff.
"And those millions and billions of
dollars spent were far from ' being
wasted in an unnecessary preparation,
? feel that the fact that money was
spent and that an enormous output of
munitions was ready was the control
ling factor Tn the weakening of the
German general staff, and that it caus
ed their message to the kaiser that
they were beaten and that he must
sue for peace. And the way I see it
.is that this money, instead of being
wasted, can be written down aa hav
ing saved the lives of hundred of
thousands of American men who
would have been sacrificed had the
war continued another year.
"That is the money we are going
to a6k the American people for in the
?Liberty Loan. We are going to ask
them for the money to bring our boys
home safe and sound, instead of leav
ing them buried in France. And
when the people of America realize
what this money did, we are not go
ing to find that they are lacking in
patriotism to 'come across.' "

,R THE BENEFIT
Bill Introduced In Senate and
House In Their Behalf-The
Church Organization Will
Also Give Practical Aid.
WILL PROMO FE EDUCATION
The Significant Movement of the
Times ls That of the Centenary
of the Methodist Episcopal
Church South-Will Spend Mil
lions Among the Uneducated.
The fact that several thousand sol
diers were unable to understand the
orders given them from their superiors
and that many, many thousands could
not s\'gn their own names to their
questionnaires brought to light a con
dition so serious that two Southern
Representatives at Washington are
now introducing bills to promote the
education of illiterates throughout the
length and breadth of America. Sena?
tor Hoke Smith, of Georgia, has intro
duced a bill in the Senate "to promote
the education of illiterates, of persons
unable to understand and use the Eng
lish language, and other resident per
sons- of foreign birth," and the samo
measure has been introduced in the
House by Hon. William B. Bankhead,
The introduction of this important
bill means a great deal to the South,
which, because of its negroes and
mountain'whites, has long borne a
reputation for illiteracy out of propor
tion to that of the rest of the coun
try. Just what steps will be immedi
ately taken as the result of the passage
of the education of illiterates" bill at
Washington cannot be stated at this
time, but, certainly, practical meas
ures will be put into operation for the ,
establishment of schools in both rural
districts and cities.
Other organizations besides that of
the government are at work on the
?anie problem-the establishment of
schools in the heart of tenement dis
tricts and rural communities being a
matter of first importance with all of
them. One of the most significant
movements of the times in this con
nection is that of the Centenary of
the Methodist Episcopal Church,
South, because that denomination will
expend within the next five years over
$3,000.000 among the uneducated
classes in the Southern and Western
States. The church is to raise a fund
of $35.000,000 in an eight-day drive in
April, the financial campaign being a
part of the Centenary Celebration of
the denomination. The money is be
ing raised with a view to putting the
work of the church on a business
basis, the church considering its duty
to the illiterates here in America to be
among the matters of first importance
which lt should undertake. A survey
has been made and the result of the
campaign will be tho apportionment of
$3,000.000 among the various illiterate
population as- follows: Mountain pop
ulation, $750,000; immigrant, $900,000;
negroes. $500.000; Indians. $150 000;
cotton mill population, $150.000; Chris
tian literature for all of them. $100.000.
With the definite step undertaken
at Washington, with one denomination
already completing it3 plans for fur
thering the work among them, and
with other churches and organizations
getting ready to join hands in their
behalf, it is more than possible that
the illiterates of the South are in a
fair way to soon become educated clti
tens of the United States.
RETURN FROM FRANCE
Three prominent leaders of the
Methodist Episcopal Church. South,
have just landed in America, after
spending two months in Europe, where
they went for the purpose of investi
gating actual conditions and deciding
upon a program for the expenditure of
$5,000,000, which sum will be allotted
to European upbuilding by the Cente
nary Commiiwion of the denomination.
The three returning church leaders
are Bishop James Atkins, Chairman of
the Centenary Commission; Bishop
Walter Lambuth, who has been in Eu
rope for nearly a year in the interest
of his church; and Dr. W. W. Pinson,
General Secretary of the Mission
Dr. Pinson and Bishop Atkins re
turned to the headquarters of the de
nomination at Nashville the latter part
of the week, and Bishop Lambuth went
directly to his home at Oakdale, Cali
While the plans for the European
work have not been announced as yet,
the returning members of the commis
sion say that they have mapped out a
very satisfactory program and that
five million dollars of the Centenary
funa w'.Yi be expended in upbuilding
schools and churches in the devastated
binds of Belgium, italy and France.
