The turrets, from which the machine
guns project, are arranged to revolve
so that the guns may be quickly aimed
in any direction. This feature, coupled
with the great agility of the whippet

TIO OF OSLO
Tremendous Guarantee Back of E;very
Bond Issued by United States to
Pay Its War Bills.
Gold is the basis of all credit. The
United States is now about to enter
a fifth great popular campaign for the
sale of government bonds to the citi
zens of the nation. America has con
tracted more than $5,000.000.000 of
debt since last November in paying
war bills, and this money must be rais
ed by the people.
Every reader of this paper knows
that United States government bonds
are the safest investment on earth.
But many of them do not, perhaps,
know just how to explain their belief.
One of the reasons why United
.States government bonds are the saf
est investment on earth is that the
.United States now 'possesses one
third of thc world's gold. This has
come about as a result of the war. It
had large gold holdings before the
.fighting began in 1914, but since then
the nations of the earth have been
forced to get needed supplies and
maintain trade relations.
The Federal Reserve banks do not
"hold, probably more than two-thirds
of this nation's supply or poid, yet
they have in their reserves more than
one-half as much as the State hanks
of the next fourteen most wealthy na
tions, and abroad the State banks have
collected practically every gold piece
that the people possessed.

red-clay areas of the Fifth Districl
may expect to see these battli
The commander of one of the tani
squadrons that saw service during th?
last drive, before the signing of the j
armistice was recently telling of ar
instance of heroism he witnessed. The
Germans were holding a position at
great cost to the allies. A detachment
of British tanks was sent out to take
the place. It failed. Then American
volunteers were called for, and twenty
tanks went over. Only six came back
-but they took the position.
That is the kind of stuff the Ameri- ;
can troops are made of. Let's show
them that we. too. will see the jot
through-that "can't" is left out ol
our vocabulary as veil as theirs. We
must put this Victory Liberty Ix>an
over-way over-to do that. America
expects every man to do his duty.

GET THE HABIT I
This year, with battles fought
and won, with Peate the lead
ing Paris style, there comes the
urge to spend for fun. to fall
for Folly's gilded guile. I know
myself the day I heard the ar
mistice was really signed. I or
dered up a nice hot bird and sat
right down and dined and
wined-Ont just as we are crea
tures all of habits we allow to
grow, my conscience started to
recall some better way to use
my dough. It's got me. You
have guessed it - Thrift - the
yeast that swells the penny's
size, that teaches us to make
short shift of things in which
?no value lies. Each morning
when I seek my job. I plunge
at least for one Thrift Stamp;
perhaps I buy it from a gob,
perhaps it's from a baby vamp
I do not care so long as they are
working towavd the self-same
end-for Thrift, the thing,
which day by day informs us
what we ought to spend.
A New Ally for Prohibition.
Why should not the Prohibition
leaders of the country, in order to
carry out to'its fullest extent the
abolition of the saloon, take up the
problem of a substitute .which must
be put in its place?
The Christian Herald believes that
a substitute for the saloon can bc
found. The most popular form of
recreation today is the motion pic
ture. It is callable of supplying the
finest sort of argument against any
attempted resurrection of the saloon.
A questionnaire sent to a large
number of leading motion picture ex
hibitors throughout the country, with
the view of learning the possible ef
fect of Prohibition on that industry,
produced surprising results. Seventy
two per cent of the exhibitors ex
pressed themselves heartily in favor
of Prohibition, twenty-five per cent,
were indiiTerent, and only three per
cent, were opposed to Prohibition.
The outcome of the inquiry is stated
in these words: "The closing of the
saloons removes the most formidabje
competitor of the motion picture
business." It is confidently expected
that after July 1 motion pictures will
leap into new popularity.
There would seem to be a most
providential opportunity here for the
Prohibition forces to avail themselves
of this powerful ally in the struggle
that must follow their legislative vic
tory, to maintain what they have fair
ly won. The Prohibition Party could
not do a wiser thing than adapt the
motion picture to their purpose.
The liquor interests do not want to
stay dead. What chance of revival
would they have if Prohibition were
put into the schools, the meeting
houses, the churches and Sunday
schools on week days, the missions
and every other available place
motion pictures showing the wicked
ness of the whole traffic which has
just been abolished by national de
cree? These would drive home the
lesson in vivid, realistic, living illus
John Barleycorn would not have a
leg left to stand on if his inglorious
career were shown to the multitudes
who would crowd to see real good mo
tion picture films dealing with the sub
ject. The film would thus become an
irresistible advocate of national so
briety and sound morals.
We commend the suggestion to all
friends of Prohibition, and especially
to those who have been active in the
late successful campaign. It is one
that strikes us as well worth trying.
