It wfll be shorter In duration, and will aim for a much larger amount than any of the pre ceding campaigns. This sim ply means that the effort will have to be just that much more concentrated and the publicity just that much more intense.' The public will read a cer tain amount of official state ments on the nature of tie loan and its aims and then it will tarn over the page and settle back to read one of your articles. If, through occa sional mention of the fact that there will soon be launched a loan drive and statement of what it is after, you could let yr-ur readers see that it is not entirely an affair of the Treasury Department, you Would be furnishing an appeal ''which would reach comers of the reading public's mind un touched by official exhorta tions.

Your help has been valuable In the past. It is needed more than ever .now. May we not enlist yon, co-operation in this respect?,- Yours wy truly. JQHNTBICE JONES.. Assistant Director of Public ity, Second federal Reserve District There are other things "more asjurmg- to write about today. But as compared .with the financing of this war, NOTHING -is important and nothing can, ia tercst the good citizen. The next demand for money and for patriotic response will come, as the letter you have read tells you, at about the end of Septem- THIS is the day to begin pre paring to meet the demand. If you stood behind one of the men fighting for this country in France, and he had asked you to ' pass him the bullets as fast as be -fired them, your mind would be en tirely on SUPPLYING HIM WITH. BULLETS. You would not waste time ap plauding, his good shots, praising Aim, or patting him on the back. You would watch carefully, move S fckly AND HAND HIM BUL 3TS, as he asked for them. The dollars that you and others put into this next Liberty loan are the bullets used by the men in France. The enthusiasm with which you do your snare, ana urge your neighbors to do their share, is the only real applause you can give the fighting man, and the only ap plause that be wants. The big loan is coming. Get ready for it Remind your neighbors that it is coming. Remind them that they also should arrange to do their share. The man who buys only one fifty dollar bond, if it is all that he can do, is' as good a citizen as the man who buys five millions of bonds. The man who does nothing is no citizen; he is dead weight a parasite. , Do not be content to say to your self that you will do your duty when the time comes. There is nothing important ahead of- you. tut thu ban. Its success represents the share, fn this war, of those that have stayed at home. It is worth your while to star awake at night and ask yourself what new thought-you can develop to encourage the buying of bonds. ' All power is thought there is bo power other than thought The victory of our men In Eu rope is in the brains of those men. The outpouring of the nation's money that must make this next loan . greater' success than all the others will come from patriotic tnougbt Map out now the plan for service that you will render this country end your fighting friends, when the nation's appeal comes in less than two months. Remember the saying, To con vince others, you must be yourself convinced. A. firm resoiuuon u uo your pan. flnn we money suraenow, io Ice me saennce neeaeo, win i job. to cosnsce otters and U. S.
