What Failure Would Mean.
Mr. Johnson went over the advan

point. In contrasting them with the
disadvantages of taxation or the con

the battlefield," he said, "would hard

failure of this second Liberty Loan."

was not only a duty, but a privilege
to purchase Liberty bonds now. "If
we ire fighting a war for democracy
we must fight it on democratic princi
ples," he said. "We send" the sons
of the rich as well as the sons of the
poor, so that all should support the
Liberty Loan movement," he asserted.
