Gen. Francisco Alvaraz was taken

-The governnant must not be em
harrassed by lack of funds at thi:
time. Every American should giv<
his utmost financial support that th<
war may be speedily concluded."
Yes, the fighting is over. Night:

"--but the war is not over, not yet
won"--here shines the people's oppor
tunity. The boys have done their par1t:
row it is up to A merica as a wvhoki
to do the rest. You say it will be
hard job. Perhaps it will--so was
that of the boys, but had they hesi
tatedl when they were told that it wa:
going to be, had they IIlinched for
moment wvhen it was steel to steel
with Prussia's best, wve would not now~
be asked for a "Victory" loan--it
would be only a fifth war loan, wvith
the fighting still going on.
They did not hesitate, but fought
with such great heroism and efliciency
that they brought Germany to her
knees at least a ye-tr aefore the tim(
counted on by miiil itary experts.
Andl now is the time- for the victory
--the real winning of the war, or as
Major General Woods put it, the
time for "the hard stages of read
.justmient, the bringing the boys home
and putting them in their civilian
jobs."I This can only be accomplished
if we all pull together. We cannot
alford to, nor will we, let this oppor
tunity for the final victory go by.
T1o every one belongs a share. Buy~
your Victory Liberty Loan bond and
be in at the finish.
