'Columbia, S. C.-(Special)-June 15
Is the last day upon which Liberty
Loan bonds can be purchased; and be
tween now and. that day, it will be
necefs-ary for the state of South Caro
lina to finish raising her allottment,
which now is ten millions of dollars.
In the great drive that was Insti
tuted on registration day, June 5,
about twenty-five per cent of this
Onount was subscribed; but there
still remains a remnant to be taken in
spite of the very vigorous work which
has been going on sInce that day in
every part of the state.
People i? the cities, towns and coun
try districts are realizing more and
more the great responsibility that
rests upon our people to take up all
the bonds that have been assiglied us;
and in the closing days of the cam
paign, there has been a series of short
and powerful drives instituted that
will very probably result in the. de
In every section, there have been
speakers provided for every kind of
occasion. At the cotton mills and oth
er industrial plants, the operators are
being addressed at the noon hour;
speeches are being made in the pic
ture shows between films; and wher
ever a crowd is gathered, a speaker
is being provided to carry on the task
of Liberty Bond education.
The women of the state have taken
hold of the idea with great enthusiasm.
They have been quicker to see the
possibilities for saving and for thrift
than the men in many instances; and
,now the slogan, "A bond in every
home," and its running mate, "Buy a
bond for baby" may be heard on every
side wherever women are gathered. -
Mrs. Rdhard I. Manning, the first
lady of the state, has been gl'ing
much of her time and efforts toward
the sale of the bonds in the capital re
oently. In connection with her work
ta the Woman's League for National
Denfense, she has directed her forces
to do all in their power to carry the
idea of the bonds Into the homes and
interest the women in the movement.
Her committee on registration day
manned the registration booths and
did missionary work on every hand
among those who registered and those
-who looked on.

the country he will be much more
willing to putup the ready cash.
And. further than that, every man
should realize that he is not making
a donation of fifty ox a hundred dol
lars when he buys a bond. For he
gets in return a government certi
floate that is much better than the
flve dollar bill that he has in his
pocket. He can keep the five dollars
for ten years and be nonethe richer;
but if he keeps a Liberty Bond for ten
years, it is working all the time, and
bringing in more money for him.
. And at any time that a man wants
to secure ready money for the bond,
all he has to do is to take it to any
bond broker, who will buy it outright,
or to a bank and secure a loan equal
to the face value of the bond without a
moment's delay. By special ruling of
