IT gives me the greatest pleasure to tee.
tify that the work has been conducted
upon the broadest lines of service, not merely
to the gallant soldiers of the army of the
great Republic of the West, but to all they
could assist. The high quality of character
of those conducting this work needs no
praise, but I affirm that in my opinion it
would have been impossible tobave afforded
the boys that inspiration and succor they
need-and which they 8o richly deserve
without your efforts.

IYour Libheity Bonlds!
Wh9n you bought your Bonds you lent
your money to the Giovernmecnt that you
might "do your part."
You gave the Government at home and
the boys 'over there" taingible evidence
Iof your support.
You shared the burden of those in other
lands who are heavily laden.
Keep your 'Bonds for the same reasons.
To dispose of them, except in case of dire
necessity, is unpatriotic--just as much so '
aas not to buy!
Furthermore, Liberty Bonds are an in
surance for your future.
This is friendly, timely advice not to lis

in exchange for your Liberty Bonds.

returned from an extended trip over

thorough investigation of the work
being done by the various war work
"I found them in dugouts thirty or
forty feet below ground, in cow-barns
where shrapnel had blown parts of
the roof away, as well as in the sub

"I have found them in hospitals and
dressing stations; in scattered villages
in the training area where our men are
billeted and even in the remote parts
of France where the forestry units are
carrying out their lonely, but efficient
and essential work. Your books are in
