meeting at Warren, Sunday evening,

: the speech is entirely her own effort
American Citizens: We are again
called upon in this great hour of
need to serve our country ,vnd we
can do this by buying Liberty Bends.
Liberty Bonds mean more fighters,
more guns, more ships, more am
munition and a better equipment for
our soldiers overseas. It means a
speedier victory and a world free for
The government calls upon every
loyal American citizen to buy bonda
and to loan our money on safe in
vestment to help win this war. The
soldiers and sailors are doing thel.
bit. What are you doing?
The United States Liberty Bonds
t are the safest and best investment
in the world. If you buy a Liberty
Bond you will receive four and one
fourth per cent Interest per year and
they are redeemable in gold or
silver at the end of twenty years.
The Liberty Bonds are Issued in do-
nominations of fifty dollars and up,
co there is a size suitable for every
one. They may be secured at any
bank or poBtoffice.
Now it is our duty to buy them ana
urge all others to buy them, and let
us heed our nations call for money to
back up our soldiers "over there."
A bloody tyrant has lifted the iron
hand of war. He Is trying to tea.
the torch from Liberty's hand, but
let us hold Liberty's torch still high
er than ever before by our aid.
What has your country done foi
you? Has it not fed, clothed ano
sheltered you under Liberty's rays,
and should we not now just loan our
money to our government to help
win this war. America gave you all,
you have to loan it; she needs it now.
Should we not buy bonds Just a.
willingly as our soldiers and sailors
sacrifice their lives for their coun
try in order to preserve democracy.
When the soldiers are over there the)
are always wondering about home,
wondering if we appreciate their sac
rifices, wondering if the nation is go
ing to back them up, whether thu
Liberty Loan will go over the top,
whether the people make real sacri
fices too, and keep sending across the
ocean that continuing stream of met.
munitions and other supplies whtch
must flow in unbroken current if w,
are to win this war. America is
proud of her soldiers and sailors ant.
their unselfish sacrifice for Liberty,
but let America be just as proud. 01
her bond buyers as her fighters.
As we are now In war we must
save and conserve such as to help wlu
the fight, so let us save and produce
all possible-to aid In this great strug
gle for democracy. Every dollar you
loan Uncle Sam will be returned with
Interest. Buying Liberty Bonds is t
privilege every American should take!
advantage of for it not only helps
our government, but also ourselves.
We no longer say we must win this
war or we will win, but we aay wt
are winning, for there are four mil
lion , men ready to help drive the
Kaiser to Berlin. We will die but
Liberty shall never die!
