Liberty is that for which our forefathers fought and for which they sacrificed their lives. Liberty is a defended principle which gives character to a nation. Liberty teaches love of country, love of- government, love for republican institutions. Lil'.'ty is fundamental to progress and civilization. To keep Liberty mary'fest, to make it an ever-living, expanding in flence for good is the master task of this day and hour. To this end there if a bond, a Liberty Bond, a tie between the people and its gowrnmnt in which all patriots, rich and poor alike, may have a generous share. Backed by the resources of the United States,, it is a war-sustaining security; it reflects the faith of citizens in a high" Ideal; it is valid proof" that Americans believe that its century-old traditions should re main an unbroken, historical record. Let the listening world hear the echo of concerted support America is obstinate for peace, justice, fraternity, victory, and the friendship of all free people. Liberal purchases of fourth--tamped Liberty Bonds will break the "iron will." V.e answer be. to all European warriors against freedom: America is united for Xibcrty united by States united for the cause which seals the doom of autocracy united in all things which make for the Parliament of Man, and, as a nation, is determined to suppress forever the tyrants against the rights of humanity.
