Is it an enemt who, day in. and day out, id time! of day
and in time of night, in the streets and in the Komes")pif the
street cars and on the railroad trains, in the privacy of joflScefe
and in the open of the sunlight, make's the caWkl .remark
and the whispered caution and the loud-voiced declaration
"Oh Well, the War's Over; It! Won't Matter
So Much Now About the Liberty Loan" ,
Is it a voice like the voice of a traitor, and are ;the words
like' the words of a friend of the'Kaisefe.p ,, ,, , .. -,.. ...
And is it done at the very crucial moment heh" our
boys over there" (oh, our owricle,arbo$! bone of our bone
and blood di our blood!) at the' ver -moment when our
boys over there " are rushing forward in the. flame and. the

Met it and thrashed it and flung it back.
Licked it, man for man, and gun for gun, and mass for mass.
Put it to utter rout and pushed on and trampled its flags in the
That's one point of the line. They are doing as much in twenty
They are fighting the great battle and
They're Winning the War!
Americans Are Winning the War!
But can they keep it up?
Day and night they can keep it up if we stand back of them!
Are they bound to win?
Bound to win if we stand by them!
Will it be long?
It will be very long if we don't stand by them! .
What can we do to make it sure ? ....
We can buy bonds.
Fellow-Citizens, We Must Do It
Can we look the mothers of those boys in the face if we
Can we stretch forth clean hands to greet them when
they come back if we fail them now ?
Every One of Us Can Buy MORE Bonds
We can spare more of the money that we have got.
We can borrow more money at the banks they are glad
to lend it for the purchase of Liberty Bonds. '
We can extend our credit.
We can go into debt.
We can manage it somehow.
Let's sit down around the table here and talk it over.

Prussianism, as yet unconquered, but manifestly conquer
able if we now do our full duty in lending our money.
