And the Nation Will Show
That It Stands Behind Them
in the Victory Liberty Loan
More than a million of Uncle Sam's
boys are "over there" looking after
the common good of the world. And
they will have to stay upon the job
until it is done; until things are right
ed again; until order is brought out
While they are overseas they must
be taken care of adequately; tfcey
must be clothed and fed and lodged
comfortably. Uncle Sam estimates
that it costs $423.27 a year to equip
and maintain a soldier in Europe.
Part of the proceeds from the com
ing Victory Liberty Loan will be de
voted to caring for the "doughboys."
Part of it will go into the rehabilita
tion fund for putting the injured sol
diers back upon their feet. Part of
it will go for insurance claims. The
rest of it will go to meet the hundred
and one other demands for this great
est of world emergencies since the
dawn of civilization.
Every mother's son of them did his
part, helped insure liberty and justice
for the world at large and restore
Uncle Sam to his rightful position in
thj estimation of the nations of

who won. They fought to the end.
through fire and flood. They never
talked about letting up.
This is no time for Americans to
think of letting up. The nation must
stand by its guns, by its records; by
Uncle Sam and must make the next
loan another big success.
FINISH THE JOB
Success of the Victory Liberty
Loan, the fifth government war loan,
will depend largely on the savings ol
the people of the nation.
To insure its success, we must save

Aside from the loss of respect for our
selves as a nation, every family will

ing loan is not fully subscribed. Uncle
Sam's war exchequer is compelled tc
spend money to maintain the army ol

This money is being borrowed froir
'the banks.of the country, and Uncle
.Sam is issuing short-term certificate?
of indebtedness in anticipation of the
?oming Liberty Loan and of the fed
eral income taxes. If the banks were
mot speedily paid back, their resourcei
would be gone, and as they could make
no loans, credit operations would be
hampered and businss stagnate.
How about it? Will we finish oui
job-that of paying the war bills, ai

That we will work tooth and
