SOLDIERS AM) LIBERTY BOXDS
This is a war of resources. Victory
will ultimately come to the side
which can amass the largest num
ber of men and dollars to carry on
the struggle to a decisive close. The
race is to the strong financially
And here might be raised the
question as to which of the two'
men or money is the more essential
to lictory. Without men there can
be no army; but how far toward
Berlin could the Allied troops on the
western front move if they were cut
off from the financial artery 'that'j
supplies them with the lire diooq oi
food and munitions?
A wise man has said that an army
fights on its stomach. Which again
brings us to the fact that money is
a factor In the war equation that
assumes a place of prime impor
tance. The United States has, by
adopting the Selective Draft Law, as
sured the raising of an army suf
ficiently large to protect this coun
try from the enemy. But conscrip
tion of wealth has not been adopted.
The Liberty Loan bond issue has
been selected as a means of raising
money by voluntary subscription -rillMlllimilllllllllllU f f 1 1 r 1 1 1 1 1 r 1 1 1 LI 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Ft 1 1 1 1 ! I M 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
The fact that the government has
made the collection of billions
financing this war a matter
voluntary subscription greatly
creases the obligations of the patriots
in this country to come forward un-JE
selfishly. The problem of physlcial(
force is solved. But, like Sampson and
his unshorn locks, phjsical and E
financial resources cannot be sepa-
rated if our nation is to stand at the
apex of her power. E
The nation calls for financial E
strength. He who can and will not
subscribe his portion of the Liberty E
Loan is a slacker.

In their anxiety to put down trea
sonable acts, American - people are
overlooking the spirit of patriotism
displayed by many German-Americans'.
At the recent state fair at Dos Moines,
a German woman came to usit her
son, who was a member of the lC8th
Regiment. She said she had four
other sons enlisted in the regular army
and that the youngest, the sixth, had
been drafted. W'hen adWsed that she
would have no trouble in hawn
youngest son exempted, the German
mother replied, "I don't want him
out; I want him to go."
KEEP WAR CLEAX.
The Invasion of Belgium, a neutral (E
which should have been held sacred E
by all belligerents, shattered all
hopes of a continuance, during the
war, of those terms of mutual in-E
ternational agreement by means of
which nations can hae intercourse E
with each other and keep civilization's
on the plane it has reached in this t 5
age. Then came the use of gas in '5
warfare, another lolation of the
agreement between nations. The p
slaughter of non-combatants, oij g
women and children, by submarine
and aerial attack, shocked the world E
more than any other phase of the Ger-i
man violations of International law. E
Civilization seemed to be decadent
and retrogressive. E
Then after the war had been raging s
for two years and a half, the United (
States entered the conflict. It is to,
be hoped that she will keep her record
clean. Had violations of interna- '
tional agreements for the welfare of E
humanity not been made, the world
would not now be suffering from
this reversion to medieral times. No E
one belligerent can gain much over
another by using some new atrocity, E
for as soon as it Is tried, the enemy 1
uses it in retaliation. The ultimate J
effect is increased sutiering ior uuui

The Quakers are conscientiously op
posed to war. But they are doing a
wonderful work In France, restoring
huildings and putting the country in
condition to produce a living for the
soldiers and their families after the
war. Quakers are not "pacifists" in
the undesirable sense.
