Few men realize the enormous difficulties that
prevail in buying clothing this season. Practically
the entire wool output is being used for government
purposes; those clothing factories that have a stock
of woolens are handicapped by the labor situation;
railroads are taxed to their utmost capacity to haul
military and government supplies, and with hun
dreds of other obstacles to overcome it is well nigh
impossible to stock clothing at this time. But the
buyers for the IOBBS-HENDERSON system of
stores foresaw these difficulties months ago and as
the result of the buying power for seven stores we
are enabled to offer a good assortment of men's
wearables at prices considerably less than those that
now prevail at other stores with less buying capacity.
We are showing nifty suits of plain and fancy
cassimeres, blue serges and French mixtures

Now Just a Few Words About This
Great World War
In this advertisement we have endeavored to
show you why it is to your interest to do your trad
ing at this store, and it is only meet that we should
use a small space in telling you why you should do
everything in your power to help win this war.
Across the seas-in France, in Italy and in Russia
our brave soldiers are doing wonderful things and are
undergoing fearful hardships that the people back
home may be assured full liberty in their lives and
intercourses with one another. Have you been
called upon to subscribe to the FOURTH LIBERTY
LOAN? You are not asked to give, but to lend, at
a good rate of interest, your money to the govern
ment so that Uncle Sam can prosecute this war to
the finish with all the energy and resources possible.
With this money you loan him he will equip our
great and noble army with ammunition, weapons,
food, clothing, medicine and thousands of other
things necessary to WIN. Every dollar you loan
him will mean just another nail driven into the coffin
of militarism, terrorism and HUN bestiality. LOAN
