To interest students throughout tho country nnd to teach them pa triotism and thrift through the Liberty Loan campaign tho National Committee of Patriotic Societies offers a $50 Liberty Bond to tho student writing the best essay of ot mora than 600 words on "Silver Bullets." This contest is open .to students in secondary schools. Principals of such schools are re nulred to inform tho National Com mittco beforo October 15 that their students aro competing. Starting off with renewed energy, the second eek of tho campaign to induce people to lend money to Uncle Sam with which to carry on the war opened this morning with subscriptions to Liberty Bonds ,ggrjKatlng more than J2.200.000. A .subscription of $2,000,000, the third f this size reported from the Philadel phia district, was announced from the Itanklln National Dank. A report from McKean and Potter Counties showed that 1 the two counties together have subscribed amounts totaling $100,000. The Quarry Tillo National Bank, of Quarryvllle, Pa., reported that It had taken $71,500 of the bonds. The Hershey Trust Company, of Hershey, Pa., reported through the Qlrard National Bank that It had taken $60,000 worth of the bonds. APPEAL OP COMMITTEE The following appeal was Issued by the Liberty Loan committee of the Third Fed eral Reserve District: 'In accepting $415,000,000 as Its quota In the second Llborty Loan! the Third Federal Reserve District, of which Phila delphia Is the center, has assumed a tre mendous task. But as great as the under taking Is, we cannot and must net think f failure. "Philadelphia's tradition for financial reliability In time of war Is brilliant. Money has literally flowed from this city whenever the war cloud has darkened the nation. Now, when we have become Involved In tho greatest and most disastrous of all wars, our city", and tho entire district as well, must respond as neer before. "It Is a task In which the rich and tho yoor have sent their sons to training camps, and In the course of time these men will lie fighting In France. If wo send our sons willingly, certainly we are willing to pro vide 'money with which to feed and equip them. Tho poor must not leave the entire fcurden td the rich, neither must the rich hold back In the hope that small subscrip tions will make up the amount that has been asked of ua. The nation's appeal la to all classes. "President Wilson has said tho time of , supreme test has come. Thla means that It must be a time of supreme sacrifice. Consider the sacrl.lces that have been made by our Allies. Think of devastated Bel- ?h5i ?J hP' England. Bo far, we have shed no blood at the front and our land il- .." ft?8 from '"vaolon. Qod grant ing, these things wilt not come to pass, but we must assume that they will, as the end of the war Is not yet In sight. We must ploture our sons In the thick of the fight and do all wo can to ameliorate their suf fering. "Every one must sacrifice to the limit of endurance. If it means giving up Pleasures and pastimes, then we must give them up. We have wondered what the slacker will say when his children ask him what ho did In the great war. What will those outside the fighting age say when their children ask them what they gave In the great war? "Remember you are not asked for contri butions. Tou are simply asked to put your money temporarily in Undo Sam's pocket, tho sateBt depository In tho world." "MINUTE MEN OF 1917" Tho "Minute Men of 1917" speak for lib. erty today.

All the Episcopalian ministers of the city were urged today by Bishop Thomas J. Garland, in an address before the Epis copalian Ministerial Association in the Church House. Twelfth and Walnut streets, to do thflr utmost to increase the number of subscriptions to tho Liberty Loan. Char acterizing the Liberty Loan as ths'basw nnd chief means of supporting the nation s war for Justice, Bishop Garland urged the ministers to work for Its success from their pulpits and through tho organizations in their churches. The Baptist mlntsfers of Philadelphia, at tholr weekly meeting at Seventeenth and Satwom streets today, got behind the Lib erty Loan and declared for ft vigorous and well-organized campaign for the bonds In all the churches. A commltteo of five will be named to direct the campaign. Pastors will be urged to Induce all In their churches to buy bonds. The ministers aided the sale of tho first Liberty Bonds, but had an Imperfect or ganization. Now they say they will make a businesslike campaign. COMPANY TO FINANCE BUYERS Employes of John Lucas & Co. have been told In a circular letter signed by Ernest T. Trigg, general manager of the company, that the company will flnnnce them In pur chasing the Liberty Bonds on tho Install ment plan. "We urge evory employe of this company to 'go the limit' In the amount of their subscriptions," says the letter. "Tho least wo can do for those loyal patriotic men who have so promptly responded to the nation's call Is to see that they are properly supplied with food, clothing and war munitions in sufficient quantities to do their duty In tho most efficient manner pos sible. Remember that white you aro per forming tho greatest patriotic service pos sible In furnishing money to our Govern ment at this time, you arc nevertheless not giving It, but lending It, and that until it Is repaid to you the loan draws Interest at the rate of 4 per cent, payablo twlco a year, and there la the best security en earth back of it " Tho Boy Scouts aro continuing their help with unabated vigor. At the top of tho list stands Wlnthrop Casanave, twelvo years old, of Drexcl road, Overbrook, a .member of scout troop 1G2, who Is running A. Bowen Garwood, his scoutmaster, a neck-nnd-neck raco for first honors. On Fri day, yorung Casanave's sales had totaled $19,550,000, while those of Garwood were $20,150,000, but today's reports Indicate that Wlnthrop has brought In subscriptions enough to make his total $25,000. The troop's slogan was "A thousand every day In October, or bust and wo are going to get that $30,000 " They have already passed their goal. Another Boy Scout has been meeting with success by offering $50 bonds for $19 99. offering to contribute a penny out of his own pocket to make up tho difference when hla customer seems reluctant. The ruse has landed many purchasers John Philip Sousa, the noted bandmas ter, now "Lieutenant Sousa, U S. N. It. F.," will visit Philadelphia on Thursday with tho Great Lakes Naval Training Station Band, composed of 250 young navy recruits whom he has trained during tho last few months, and lead a concert which Is ex pected to arousa further enthusiasm for the Liberty Bond sale. .

Thirty million was subscribed by not more than 100 banks, business firms nnd Individ uals In tho Philadelphia district to the Liberty Loan second Issuo bonds last week Tho thousands nnd thousands of subscrip tions received last week from small Invest ors, tho commltteo in charge found Itself unable to tabulate. These, for all that Is known to tho contrary, may have amounted to another $30,000,000. But even If tho subscriptions have reached $60,000,000, an average dally sub scription of $20,000,000 must bo kept up until October 27, tho last day on which np plications may bo filed, If tho Philadelphia district Is to tako tho $415,000,000 worth of bonds which Uncle Sam offers It. Nothing but confidenco that this amount will bo subscribed has been expressed by tho commltteo In charge of tho campaign, but they aro sparing no effort to clinch their belief.

London, saw In Berlin reports of n, discussion of Germany's war alms to be held In the Reichstag today anotlicr echo of Field Marshal Halg's guns blasting their way to victory on the western front. The Berlin reports, coming by way of Amsterdam, Indicated tho Government had been compelled to this step of debating war alms by growing boldness of the So cialists and Radicals In the German par liamentary body. At tho opening of r3 fall cession of the Reichstag on September 27 Chancellor Mlchaella flatly rejected all plcaa to announce Germany's alms, insisting they was not yet ripe, Immediately after this curt defiance of the Llbcfal strength came Field Marshal Halg's smashing victory on the western front and Uio development In Germany of an ultra conservative party of Pan-Germans, under Von TIrpltz, apostle' of frlghtfulness and of unyielding militarism As observers here traced tho situation theso two developments Indicating waning strength of tho militarists In the field while they were seeking to assume even greater governmental powers emboldened the Liberals to act Germany has permitted only tho most eager outllno of Reichstag proceedings to pass her censorship during tho last week.
