The Liberty Loan Committees fig
ured up and carStully estimated the
amount of each one's subscription to
the Fourth Liberty Loan. That loan
was for $6,000,000,000. The Victory
Liberty Loan with which we are now
dealing is for only $4,500,000,000. or
three-fourth as much as the Fourth
Liberty Loan.
The right way for everyone to da is
not to wait for some solicitor to call
on you to subscribe for your part#of
this last government loan. You know
that your subscription should be three
fourths as large as your subscription
to the fourth Liberty Loan. Go to
your bank subscribe for that sum and
you will be doing the. right thing in
the right way. Don't be numbered
among the pikers.
While the peace terms have not
yet been officially announced, it can
be stated with a reasonable degree
of certainty that a complete under
standing has been arrived at on all
questions affecting Germany. It can
also be said, that the terms to be im
posed upon Germany will be stern
and just but not vindictive. Germany
will be helped to develop the com
forts and arts of peace, but positiv
ely prohibited from preparing far
war, or maintaining a war armament.
While the peace terms will burden
Germany with an enormous debt, they
will, on the other hand, relieve that
country from the expense of main
taining a vast army and navy, Ger
many's losses of men in the great war
were but little more tha% $£0 Jui^aifepr

Into consideration, it will be seen
that the number of Germany's wealth
producers are as numerous as they
a»er were. These wealth producers
will have to go to work .and earn
enough money to pay the damages
wrought by their army and navy upon
their neighbors. By the time the debt

Secretary of the Treasury Glass in
dulges in no oratory in his appeals
to the American people to buy Victory
Liberty Loan bonds. Here are a few
of his commendable statements:
"The "fighting is over, brought to
an early conclusion' largely by the
wonderful achievements of the Ameri
can soldier.
"The cost of his training, equipment,
and maintenance has not yet been ful
ly met, nor has the coBt of that huge
provision of war material which had
so much to do with weakening the
enemy's will to resist.
"The Victory Liberty Loan provides
the money to pay for material which
helped to stop the war and thereby
saved tens of thousands of American
Lloyd George in his great speech
in the House of Commons last week
said. "Nobody could have treated
more sympathetically the peculiar
problems and special susceptibilities
of Europe than President Wilson. An
swering the charge which orignated
in the United States that the work of
framing the peace treaty had been de
layed by the discussion of the League
of Nations, the Prime Minister insist
ed that the league "instead of wast
ing time saved time" by providing
machinery that could readjust and cor
rect possible mistakes."
The B6lshevlkl are unable to make
any head way in France, largely be
cause nearly every family in that
country owns a part of the govern
ment indebtedness, and is financially
interested in its maintenance. For a
similar reason the American people
should insist upon owning the bonds
their country is obliged to issue.
Government bonds in the hands of the
masses promote national unity.
The French and Italian Junkers and
the English and American Tories are
"screaming through the keyhole" at
the members of the peace conference.
These screamers are more interested in
discrediting, Wilson, Lloyd George,
Clemenceau and Orlando than they are
in the future peace of the world.
Mrs. Phoebe Apperson Hearst, sur
viving spouse of United States Senator
George Hearst, is dead. She shared
with her husband the hardships and
privations of pioneer life in the fa
west, and helped him to acquire the
many millions of dollars which she
i»g administered since his death with
good judgment and a humane spirit.
She is survived by her only child,
William R. Hearst, America's fore
most publisher.
Mrs. Hearst has ,given millions for
the promotion of education and art,
and the betterment of human condi
During her funeral services, which
were held a few days ago in San
Francisco, the business houses of that
city closed, the courts adjourned, and
bad she been the first citizen of the
country greater honors could not have
been shown than those accorded to her
by the people of California.

The National Society, Daughters of
the American Revolution, recommenas
that the day on which President Wil
son issues the peace proclamation be
declared a national holiday.
Now there are only two, but soon
there will be three all-important
events in the history of the world.
When God said let there be light and
there was light, that was the first of
these all-important events.
When tfte Savior of Mankind was
born in a stable in Bethleham, that
was the second of these all-important
When the peace treaty, with its
League of Nations covenant is sign
ed, that will be the third all-impor
tant event in world history.
This third all-important event, de
signed to prevent future wars, will
probably lead to the establishment of
a world wide holiday, similar to our
Christmas holiday which is every
where observed in commemoration of
the second all-important world event.
The war was a world war, and the
holiday commemorating its termina
tion and covenanting against the recur
rence of a similar calamity, should be
a world holiday.
The anniversary of the day on
which the treaty is signed by the rep
resentatives of the nations would be
a very appropriate date.
(From the New York World.)
Senator Cummmins of Iowa has an
nounced in a public address that if the
published reports of the amendments
made in the Constitution of the League
of Nations are correct he will vote for
the covenant. As Senator Cutamins
was one of the original signers of the
round robin, his statement marks the
beginning of the disintegration of that
celebrated coalition.
It has long been apparent that the
signers of the round robin were not
united by a common motive. Some of
them, like Senator Borah and Senator
Poindexter, were unqualifiedly oppos
ed to any League of Nations. From
their point of view one kind of a
league would be as bad as another
Then there were Senators like Mr.
Lodge and Mr. Knox who were not
irrevocably committed against a league
but purposed-to model it themselves

States 'Senate.
wished to defer filial judgment until
the trend of public opinion was dUr
closed, and some who,, while they fa
vored any reasonable league, believed
that the President had. slighted the
Senate and deserved rebuke.
Public discussion during the last six
weeks has shjjwn that the country is
overwhelmingly in favor of the league,
and the amendments made ln_ Pari®
and the amendments1 m*w in r«op* Fire^op ArperJcan
parent good faith. Whether the Con
stitution oi the league is the better
for all these changes is a matter of
divided opinion. The Irreconcilable
Tories, whether British or American,
have not been placated, but the
changes have made it impossible to
rally a third of the Senators against
the treaty.
(From the New York World.)
Ever since the Victory Loan was
first projected many men have been
running about proclaiming with an
easy knowledge of finality that "the
banks must take it the people can
not or will not.
Addressing himself particularly to
this sapient conclusion, Secretary
Carter Glass the other night, in his
speech to the loan workers of New
York, ventured to point out that by
as much as the people rely upon the
banks to take the loan, by so much
the ability of the banks to meet the
demands of current trade and indus
try would be impaired.
This is of course the fact, and it
needs no elaboration except to those
so muddled mentally that they can
see no relation between the banks
and the moving wheels of commerce
and employment, and they are beyond
hope of enlightenment. The man who
refuses to subscribe for the loan in
the idea of letting the banks look af
ter it is a man who is trying to up
set his own sources of work and de
stroy his owns means of livelihood.
The banks cannot tie up their loan
able funds in these four-year notes
of the Government and have those
funds to lend in ordinary course to
It will be just a case with that man
of cutting oft his nose to spite his
face. The banks simply cannot take
the loan and carry it for long. If the
American people compel the banks to
do this, it will bring all industry
crashing down about their heads. But
the American people have no such
intention: They are going to take the
loan and for even loftier reasons than
their own industrial preservation
