NO. 1G EVERY AMERICAN TO AID IN FIGHT FOR FREEDOM r "Must AU -Speak, Act Declares President Farmers of South vStufF as Well "SUPREflE TEST OF THE NATION HAS COME." Washington, April 15. In a personal appeal addressed -tonight to Ills fellow-countrymen, President Wilson calls upon every American cit izen man, woman and child to join together to make the Nation a unit for the preservation ot Its ideals and for triumph of democracy In the world war. "The supremo test of the Nation has come,' says the address. J'We must all speak, act and serve together," "I particularly appeal to the farmers of the South to plant abun dant foodstuffs as well as cotton. They can show their patriotism In no better or more convincing way than by resisting the great temptation of the present price- of cotton and helping, helping upon a great scale, to feed the Nation and the peoples everywhere who are fighting for their liberties and for our own. The variety of their crops will be the visible measure of their comprehension of their national duty. "Let me suggest also that every one who creates or cultivates a garden helps and helps greatly to solve the problem of the feeding of the nations; and that every housewife who practices strict economy puts herself in the ranks of those who serve the Nation. This Is the time for America to correct her unpardonable fault of wastefulness and extrava gance. Let every man and every woman assume the duty of cajpful, provident use and expenditure as a public duty, as a dictate of Patriot ism which no -one can now expect ever tJ bo excused, or forgiven for ignoring. SUPREME TEST HERE. "" "In the hope that this statement of the needs of the Nation and" of the world in this hour of supreme crisis may stimulate those to whom Jt comes and remind nil who need reminder of the solemn duties of a aimo such as the world has never seen before, I beg that all editors and pnbliahers everywhere will give as prominent publication, and asyWido, circulation as 'possible to this appeal. I venture to suggest, also, to all J advertising agencies that they would perhaps render a very substantial and timely service to the country if they would give It widespread repe tition. And I hope that clergymen w 111 not think the theme of it an un worthy of .inappropriate subject of coment and homely from the pulpits. "The supreme test of the- Nation has come. We must all speak, act and serve together." JJVK AMERICAN EAGLE PURCHASED 1JY SOLDIER -Magnificent Specimen Shot Down Ky Farmer In Shelby.
