THE COMING LIBERTY LOAN.
Tho Victory Liberty Loan, which
will complete our payments on the
war preparations that brought Gor
many to hor knees so suddenly last
November, will bo floated botwecn
April 21 and May 10, Tho Secretary
of tho Treasury has announced that
tho terms offered on the now loun
will bo such as to mnko tho govern
ment securities tho "best buy" on tho
market at tho tlmo It Is circulated.
While Mr. Glnss has not .announced
the amount ho would call for, tho best
informed publlo men say that tliq
issuo will be $5,000,000,000, with tho
right to nccopt all over-subscrlptlonB.
And now to consider briefly why
tho Victory Liberty Loan has to bo
floated among tho American people.
In tho first place, tho loan Is a
gool Investment. Beforo tho war,
most of us were not Investors. Today
one-fourth of our population are bond
holders and half of us hold somo sort
of government securities. Wo have
begun, at least, to learn tho thrift
habit that wo may lay up somo trens
tires on earth.
In tho second place, this was our
war, n war of tho American people,
democracy against tyranny. Wo have
testified fully to our sanction of this
war by Bonding 2,000,000 men to tho
bnttlo front, training 1,750,000 moro
and getting ready 4,000,000 to go into
training. Wo testified to our intorest
in it when wo subscribed $7,000,000,
000 to tho Fighting Fourth Liberty
Loan and gave liberally to our war
Now tho war Is over and we wonder
a bit why wo aro asked f6r moro mon
ey Thoro aro Btlll a million of our
lighting mon in Franco who must bo
brought homo. There aro thousands of
our wounded and sick in hospitals who
havo yet to ho cared for. Our mer
chant marine is still building that
America may take hor placo In the
world mart. All theso tako funds.
Yet that Is not tho real reason for
tho Victory Llborty Loan. Our gov
ernment had In process of construc
tion, when Germany capitulated, a war
machine which was planned to anni
hilate tho armies of tho Fatherland
during tho coming Bummer. Tho al
lied exports helloved that Germany
would not surrender until she was de
feated, so they planned for that over
whelming dofcat during tho coming
summer. Germany, howover, conclud
ed that sho had enough before tho
full force of our war catapult struck

They know, too, thnt tho American

They saw tho Amerlcnn ships In
