AND PEACE Dear Teachers: These tags are sent out by those at the head of the government of the United States, of which you are I hope a true and loyal citizen. This is an object well worthy of your careful attention or it would not be done by those at its head. Emerson Carey, of Kansas, Dr. Garfield, at the head of the United States Fuel Administration, even our President thinks it of especial impor tance, then surely it is a thing not to be lightly put aside. - If you read the county papers lately you will have learned that it is no little thing this shovel full of coal a day; instead it is one of the big'gest of things if each one does his duty. ..Yes as small a thing as a shovel Yull of coal a day may mean as great a thing as the success or failure of this beloved land of ours in the great struggle in which we are engaged. Ships - cannot move, cars cannot run, factories can not operate, mun itions can not be made, explosives of all kinds depend upon coaL . One shovel full a day and it means a solid coal train 30 miles long, in one hundred days it would reach from New York to San Francisco, 3000 miles if each one saves but. a shovel ful. See that there is one tag placed on each coal shovel in your district and impress deeply upon every one what it may mean. Can you do it? Will you do it? And help win the war for the United States and for the world and humanitv. By order of the U. S. Fuel Admin istration. Hudson Harlan, - County Chairman.

You have been buying Liberty bonds, contributing to the Red Cross and the Y. M. C. A. camp welfare, and now you are in for war taxes to beat the band. Well, I am surprised at you, Hiram, though I should not be. ' Your old dad was a tightwad who annexed himself to everything of value he could get- his hands on. I hoped you would be a little more decent. But here you are blowing in the money your dad left like you own a Kansas gusher flow ing a thousand barrels of oil a day, thinking only of yourself and your personal .comfort and enjoyment, and kicking because you are asked to pay a little part 'of the debt you owe Uncle Sam. - Say, Hiram, hot? would you like to see Kaiser Bill running this country? No chance, eh? Just forget it. The kaiser will be doing that same if a lot of you fellows don't jar loose, and come through with all the help you can give the government. How would you feel if the kaiser would call in his personal spy and ask. "Who's this guy, Hiram, what's blowing himself?" "Hiram," says the personal spy, "Oh, yes, he's a high roller what's been left a pile by his dad what's died." "So, so," smiles Kaiser BilL "You just go around and take half of it and then see the other half is put where he can't blow it. And say, Amiel, 1 hear he is living too high. You might give him a food card allowing him a couple of ounces of bread with a half ounce of sugar and carrot a day. Oh, you might let him have a quarter of a pound of meat for his Sunday din ner. But we've got to teach Hiram what kultur means." Beat it beat Kaiser Bill! Now you are talking. Just you ran that six cylinder car in the shed and lend the government the $125 a month it is costing you. Let your chaff eur go to France and run an ambulance, or else send him down to one of the factories to run a truck. . Give the mechanic at the garage a chance to go to work in some shop where he is needed. Cut out these cabaret parties and lite bunch you have been giving such good times. Get down to buying War Sav ings stamps and behaving like a royal American citizen. Do this, Hiram, and everybody will respect you. At least nobody will be pointing you out as you drive by in your car and say ing, "There goes that blooming slack er, Hiram." ' We notice in the recent published statement of the Oberlin National Bank that it lists under resources the sum of $109,950 in Liberty Bonds. Otis L. ' Benton; its ' president, seems to be doing his little bit. He has only three children. His son, Harwood, is in the service as first lieutenant. His son, Gerald, is also a first lieutenant.. His only daughter, Pansy, the other day, married Lieut. Gordon Banchor, of Boston. . Where is Ed Summers now spokesman of the Democratic party, to condemn Check Book Benton for extravagance in his campaign to make the world safe for democracy- in the saddle f The evil that men do in murdering characters rises up like Banquo's ghost, to mock them. Benton s home, in Oberlin is the most., beautiful one in the west. And yet, the ice hut of an Esquimo within the ' Artie circle, houses parents among, a cheerful 'revelry of barbarians more to be-envied. Norton Champion. .. .
