OSMCEMEHT OF THE THIRD LIBERTY LOAN. Secretary McAdoo, u n-d e r date o! March 26. authorized the following statement: "The Secretary of the Treasu ry, in a conference with Mr. Kit chin, chairman of the ways ami means committee, today outlin ed his plan for the third Liberty loan. Actual expenditures of the United States (Government and of the Allied Governments hav ing been less than had been indi cated by the estimates, the am ount of the next loan will be on ly Three Bi lion Dollars, the right being reserved to allot over subscriptions. "The Secretary will ask au thority from Congress to issue bonds bearing interest at the rate of i per centum per annum acceptable at par and accrued in terest in payment of United States inheritance taxes and having the benefit of a sinking fund of 5 per centum per annum during tbe eriod of the war and for one year thereafter, "It is the belief of the Sec reta ry that the rate now proposed is sufficient and that by restric tion ol unnecessary capital is sues, by inducing the people who subscribe for' Liberty Bonds to save and keep them for invest ment, and by purchases with tbe sinking fund from those who find themselves compelled to sell, fu ture increases in the interest rate may be avoided. "In order to put an end to the expectation of higher interest rates it is proposed that the con version privilege shall beelimina ted from tbe new bonds but the holders of Liberty bonds of all existing issues will be given an opportunity to convert their bonds into the i per centum , bonds. In, addition to the foregoing principal items of the proposed program Congress will be asked for authority to issue bonds to the amouut of about four billion five huudred million in addition to (those now authorized in or . der to provide for future issues, for authori ty to make addition al loans to the Allied Govern ments during the summer, and .for authority ti dp.sit income and excess pro tils taxe. with National State Hanks andTrust Companies throughout the Uni ted States in the same manner as the proceeds of Liberty Bonds.' The Secretary added "l am 'sure that tr-eThird Liberty Loan with the same loyalty and en thu siasra that"' characterized their support of the first two loans. ' 1 he great events now happen ing in France must fire the sou of every American with a new determination to furnish all the dollare and all the material re , sources of America that are need ed to put Hn end to the execra ble atrocities of German Milita rism.

Charlotte Observer,- A high Army official discussed with The Observer the other day in most interesting way tbe psy- bological effect upon the soldier mind of the mental attitude of the folks back home. "The soldier at the front," h said, "throws no more confi dence into his efforts than the home foks hold his ability and valor."'' What the lines are tightly drawn and success seems far re moved, when the odds are a- gainst him and nothing but sheer determination can brine: victory out of what looks like defeat,' the soldier in the foreign ield will receive the impetus to do the impossible, to achieve, to win, if he hds that quiet and abi ding knowledge that the people at home have utter trust in his ability to win. Ou the contrary, nothing wea kens the morale of the soldier in oreign lands more than to read week-kneed statements iu the home papers, to feel that his own people under-value his ability. It seems, theu, that this is no time for whimpering; no time to hoist tbe while feather or for cold feet. Fordays past the hordes of tbe enemy, faroutnumberingour brcet), have poured a hail of shell and shot into the positions of our brave allies. Facing the su preme hour of tbe war, the Kais er has demonstrated a willing ness to ruthlessly butcher hun dreds of thousands of his own men if he may gain his objective. To fail now would be the sever est blow the Teutons have re ceived. Aud in order to win a reckless disregard for human life, has brought forth an assault not before equalled in intensity in the annals of world war history. But despite their handicap in men, tue allies have stood, as Jackson stood, "like a stone wall. They have lost some ground in places, but'they will regain it. For days past, through the kindness of Major Dupont, The Observer has been permitted to present to its readers each day a masterly resume of the war sit uation in France, as the mighty battlo has developed. Major Du pont is the ranking French ofti- ej at Camp Greene. He is a . sol dier who has seen fierce fighting in the trehches. Thanks to bis ample knowledge of the many phases of tho great battle, his predictions, in every case, have been proven true by later devel oping facts. What strikes us most about his articles is that sublime confi dence he holds in French and British arms. At the first of the colossal attack, when much ground had been gained by tbe enemy, his faith in the final out come was not shaken for one moment. And surely it is the one who has seen the bloody shambles may stand at a distance and see his brother outnumbered, falling back, aud speak words of deep seated confidence and faith, there should be none iu America wil ling to whimper, falter and lose faith. That beautiful confidence which the oft-tried French have in finu victory must indeed be an inspi ration to all of America to stand firm with resolute trust, no mat ter how black the picture flash ed on the kaleidoscope of war may appear at times. Major Dupont, in his review o the developments at the front, is rendering a distinct and highly valuable service to the cause o America -and her allies, in that, he is contributing much to the con J fidence of the people of this city Min Thu Miuy Required ti Win War. , "There'B more to be done if we are going to win this war than simply giving our money," says Col. F. H. Fries, State Director of War Savings. "We must so direct our lives, our households and our desires as to release la bor and materials that are now employed for personal gain arid comforts, that they may be used in producing things n cessary to win the war. We cannot go on living and making use of things now just as we did before the war, and at the same time support a vast army in the field and a great navy at sea. "The warfare that we are in to day not only requires our send ing our men to the front, butour keeping them there fed and cloth ed. ltrequireHa production ot ships and shells, guns and rifles, motor trucks, aeroplanes, hospi tal supplies, food and agreat va riety of goods, the output of which call for vast industrial plants from one end of the coun try to the other, manned by mil lions of men and women, who serve their country as effectively in their way as our soldiers and sailors in active battle. "If our people continue to re quire the luxuries and non-essentials which they required in the time of peace, they are not only making it necessary that these things shall be produced and at the expense and t ime of mater ials needed to fight the war, but they are handicapping the Gov eminent They cause strong competition with the Govern ment, rather than give it their support. "England has long ago put tbe ban on extravagant dressing, and l am told tuat no one in England owns or uses an auto mobile for pleas -ire. Many of the palaces and rich bouses are closed, the families moving into apartments, to . release the ser vants for work in munition plants and other war industries, And it seems to me that ourpeo pie might as well now begin to do without some of the things which are non-essential to their lealih aud efficiency and which cost money and labor to pro duce, that our Government may be less hindered in its plan of fighting and winning the war."

Before the boones of peace re turn, those boons so long mis laid, our Teuton foes will have to learn that war's a beastly trade. In times of peace they armed and drilled, with war their end and and aim; a million gents have since bean killed, and they are all to blame. "Oh, it is well to plow and sow," their rules us ed to say, "and it is good to ply the hoe, and put up stacks of hay: it's wise to make our liver- wurst a'nd dyes that will n o t fade, but war is always best and first, the Teuton's honored trade ve 1 1 Re to see t lie larmers rnixe their rows of (sugar beets and la bor through the summer days providing wholesome eats; we praise the man who earns his bread with plowshare, scythe or spade, but most of all we praise the sword, and war, the Teu ton's trade." And when this wea ry war is done, the Teuton must admit that other tools than stvord aud gun are billed to make a hit. If he goes back to arm and drill, with energy insane, if he goes back to learu to kill, the scrap U all in vain. Before the scene of war we leave, and sheathe the gleaming blade, we have to make the Touts believe that war's a beastly trade. Walt Ma son in News and Observer. Try This For Sour Stomuch.
