"If I Could Afford to Face Death You
Can Afford to Subscribe,”
Says Soldier.
If you are framing up any excusi s
for yourself as to why you are not
‘going to take any Victory Notes”
you had better make them mighty
good ones They will need to be vital
ly impor'&nt to really excuse you, as
there are thousands of mighty sharp
critics listening tor 'hist excuses.
Maybe you think you have some
pretty good ones if so, you will need
them. Dor.': worry trying to decide
Just which is the best t-xcuse you hate.
In one day recently -1,000 American
soldiers landed in New York. The
country is filling up with others who
are back from the frer-r. You may
haw seen some of them. Some of
them have empty sleevi Others are
walking with a (rut h . ;«tead of th.
sturdy leg they had a year ago. Some
of them have that gray and drawn look
of the man who has tasted Hun gas.
Some of them-have lost an eye.
These boys know what that war
game was. They have looked on the
doings of the Boche in France amt
Belgium. They know what the Ger
I man did to those countries. looking
l UWI,' Wi (in . . ; . i r 111
; they got a pretty clear idea of what
i the Hun had planned for America w hi n
our time came
Furthermore, these men are going
to want to know just why any man
who <i&!!b himself an American is
hunting up excuses for not subscribing
to a Liberty Loan. They know that
it was Americans who signed the de ath
warrant of the Hun overseas and they
are going to ask some mighty pointed
questions of the stay-at-homes, who
stayed 3.000 miles awm from the
danger and went calmly about their
businesses in v.ar time.
The fighting man .s going to argue
this way "if 1 could afford to leave
everything that made life sweet to me
and go overseas for America; 1 could
afford to take my changes with sudden
death to get there and Fudden death
after 1 arrived, I could afford to face
fllfh. diseasf, gas, shrapnel and tra
chine gun bullets; 1 could afford to
facs cold steel and showers o! hand
grenades and fight hand to hand with
the Hun in a dirty ditch And these
Americans who staved at home tell
me ihat ihev can't afford to subscribe
to a Victory Loan!"
You can begin to see that you need
some hand mane copper-rive'ed ex
cuses. ran t you? You can begin to see
tha’ these excuses arc going to have
to be a little above the average run,
can’t you?

The Leopard Can t
Change His Spots
THU MAN who whipped the Hun
know* the Hun better than any
one else in the world. That man
Is Held Marshal Ferdinand Koch, coni'
1 mander of all the allied armies In
I Europe, and who repeats that the
leopard cannot change its spots.
"We must stay on the Rhine," says
1 Foch. "We must doublelock the door."
The man who says this is the allied
! genera! who was given the well-nigh
I super human task of stopping the
Huns when they were beating back
! the allies one little year ago.
Remember,'’ says h^, "those 70,
000,000 of Germans will always be a
| menace to us. They are an envious
and warlike people. Their character
l6tice are not changed. Fifty years
hence they will be what they are to
day Dp not trust the appearances of
! the moment."
Those of us who have been telling
ourselves that "the war is over" and
| that maybe "the Germans will settle
down pretty soon and go about their
business in a peaceful manner’’ will
do will to ponder rather deeply what
Marshal Foci: says.

into northern Prance and seize the
ohann -1 porta aa a baae of operations
against England They failed the iast
time because they d;d not believe Eng
iaiid would come in and when they
1 found she was corning in it was too
late to change their plans ”
‘You think," he added, "the Ger
j mane will have no arms for another
attack' Ho! Ho’ How do you know’
By the rime you had found out that
, they had them it would he too late."
WHIN the man who has
spent his life in measuring
the German power for wnr

brain of Germany for a lifetime, who
