September 28th and 29th
On these days everyone will be given an opportunity to
step up and buy bonds without being solicited to do so.
Places will be jdesignated where volunteer subscriptions will
be received. These places will be announced in the papers
and by signs. Your card will be on file there. Cards of
those who do not volunteer will be used for active solicita
tion, which will begin Monday, September 30th. No one
will be overlooked.
Do not wait for some one to come after your subscription.
Show that you, too, can volunteer for your Country
service, just as our boys "over there" did.
Figure out now the very maximum you can subscribe. Be
ready when Volunteer Days come. This is no time for
half-way measures. Half-way measures won't push our

The hope of the world lies
in the sons of America.
They are "Over there" now a million and
a half strong; they are going over daily a
million and a half more of them. Another
million and a half are waiting for the call
that soon will come.
Those who have been under fire have demon
strated superbly the qualities that make fight
ers they have shown that the barbarous hun
is no match for them.
Many an American son has gone down
has made the supreme sacrifice for his Coun
try and liberty. Before the german horde
is driven back within its own borders, many
more American sons will go down. How
many, depends upon us at home.
A small American army, no matter how brave,
will inevitably suffer severe casualties. A
gigantic American army will overwhelm the
hun and bring quick victory with the least
loss of life.
The lives of our sons are in our hands. The
boys are ready, willing and eager. They
must be trained and equipped. No time
must be lost. It is up to us to provide the
money necessary to make these boys invinci
ble. We must do it" and do it quickly. With
our own sons already in the fight, every
day's. delay lays -at our own. doors the blood
of brave American sons.
