during his short talk declared that the

that a.- alwavs ucfoie they were ex

"'There should l.e no need tor these

people there walk up and Imi.d over ,
theit money because they know there

"As I look over the audience to

continued."' it can be readily seen that

"Mow careful \v? arc not to come

one which we cannot get away from

that Germany is tilled with ideals, not
one of which carries with it a human

"Anything having in it mercy or

American Red Cross after the outbreak
of the war. in 1 1 *>. This German dis
played the iron cross as reward for

"To hent the Herman we must use
brute fo!ce worse than lie has show
ed.' was the assertion of Miss l-'ay.
Miss Fay told of the magnificent
work being done l?y tiie women of
Hreat Britain and Kranre, where every
capable woman is at work in factories
and war l::bor. These countries first
felt that women would not lie able
to replace the men, said Miss Kay. but
they soon showed that tney could do
their work heroically, and now tin?
women of America are beginning to
reveal the same spirit.
Unless tJerman.v is defeated soon trie
Prussians may lie able to mohtlixe and
arm for their cause millions of Hti*
sians whom they have under their con
trol. was the warning message given
to his audience b> John l.ee. He point
ed thai such a -teji was not impossi
ble.
"History repeats itself." he said.
"Napoleon Bonaparte made his fatal
journey to Moscow with I" per rent
of his army composed of Hermann
whom he had conquered in passing
through their provinces."
"There is one way to prevent the
Hermans repeating tills and that is
bring I hem to their Knees tiefore they
can accomplish it." declared Mr. l.ee.
Speaking of the undauntablc spirit
of France, Mr. l.ee asserted:
"If we could ever get into the hearts
of America ihe spirit of France, all
hell couldn't licl; us."
AM Kit IT A l>OKS NOT KNOW
?Sl KKIilll\<;s OF At.I.IKIl I'KOI'I.K
He declared that America knows
nothing of sacrifice as yet compared
with her allies. In calling for liberal
subscriptions to the loan Mr. l.ee told
of witnessing the return of a transport
from France to a Virginia port a rew
days ago. There were forty hoys, to
tally blind, taken from the ship. Slxt>
more'were in straight Jackets, stark
? ma?l as the result of shell shock, while
hundreds of others came without limbs
or entirely broken in health.
"But every boy's face wore a smile,"
declared Mr. l.ee. "They were con
clous of not only having dotii their
duty well but perfectly."
Itcports from every district through
out the State and Fifth District re
ceived yesterday indicated that the
fourth loan is progressing satisfac
torily and indications are that every
