Telegrams Received in Washing?
ton Indicate That the Country
Is Wide Awake to Impor?
tance of Success of Issue.
Washington Oct. 1. ? Subscriptions
to the Fourth Liberty Loan have been
more numerous and larger than at
this stage of any of previous loan
campaigns. This was indicated today
in telegrams receive! from all sec?
tions of the country. Actual totals
in the campaign to raise $0,000,000,
000 in three weeks were not available
but Treasury officials belicv that
a report could be obtained from every
district by tomorrow night.
"From the reports now at hand,"
said a statement issued at loan head?
quarters tonight, "it can safely be as?
serted that sales arc moving much:
faster in the early days of this cam?
paign than they did duping the third
Liberty loan drive.''
Trains Are Moving.
The twenty-four war exhibit trains
moving through the country are given
much of the credit for the enthusiasm
of first days. Thousands of people
daily are passing through these
trains, reports say, and staying after
the trains have gone to hear speeches
and enter their subscriptions. From
many districts today reports that
the throngs were so great they could
not pass through the cars during the
stay of the trains. In the New York
district, more than $2,000,000 of bonds
were sold from the two trains on
Subscriptions in New England for
the first two days were (07,000,000 of
which (45,000,000 came from Massa
The Pacific coast had sold $50,000,.
000 of bonds at the close of business
last night, reports from San Francisco
said. Subscriptions in Hawaii on the
opening day were (3,401,000.
The Richmond and Atlanta dis?
tricts report more subscriptions than
could be tabulated. Negroes through?
out the South are reported to be sub?
scribing geneerously.
In this county the Liberty Loan
campaign is moving along One. The
committees all over the county are
getting busy, and will put Tazcwell
in line with the other progressive
counties of the Slate.
The campaign was given a great,
boost in the county Sunday by many
speakers. A large amount in bond
sales has been reported at the diff?
erent speaking places.
To the Citizens of Tazewell County:
When will the war end? The
strength and unity of the effort put
forth is the answer.
Germany is nearer defeat than ev?
er before but the task remains great.
It cant be accomplished by the mil?
lions of soldiers in France. It re?
quires the combined efforts of free?
men everywhere. The army must be
supported to the limit by every man
and woman in the United Stales. The
chance is at hand. It came with the
opening of the Fourth iberty Loan.
Each one who can must buy, buy
now and buy to the limit. Any fail?
ure to support this loan to an ex?
treme effort borders on disloyalty.
It's a failure to support the boy who
is fighting your battle in France.
There are moro than two million rea?
sons why you should buy bonds. Ev?
ery soldier and sailor is a reason. If
the boy at the front gives his blood,
how dare a man withhhold his gold ?
The boys at the front are writing
for you a deed to perpetuate your
peaceful possession of property ami
your right to live in the land of the
free. They are writing it with their
own blood. Your purchnse of bonds
is the expression of gratitude. Are
you fit to live? Prove it, or do like
Judas and go to your own place.
Tnzcwcll County's allotment is
$550,000. It must be raised by the
19th inst. Why not raise it by the
12th and join the whole country in
celebrating the discovery of Ameri?
ca on that date. The strongest ap?
peal I can make to you is Duty and:
Service. The response will be the
measure of your manhood.
County Chairman.
To avoid confusion, it is urged that
the Womans Committee in this Liber?
ty Loan solicit only the women for
bonds, nnd leave the men to be so?
licited by their own committee. How?
ever, should the men voluntarily of?
fer any good bonds to the Womans'
Committee they should, of course, be

This is an appeal to the women of
Tnsewcll to come to the help of tho
Red Cross organization of the town.
The Red Cross here, in trying to meet
the requirements of the organization
in Washington, is overwhelmed with
work and we cannot meet our obli?
gations unless the women of the town
who have never rendered any assist?
ance come lo our help and discharge
the duly that devolves upon them as
patriotic citizens of the community.
The membership of the Red Cross: ]
la Inrge, hut the faithful women uro
few indeed. The great, majority of
our people seem to he of the opinion
that when they pay their annual dues
of one dollar each, they have dischnrg
cd their full duty to the Red Cross.
The average number of workers In
the surgical dressing deportment is
about ten. The average daily num?
ber in the work room is about twelve!
The Red Cross here has been organ?
ized since July, 11117; tin- amount of
work done bv the organization und
shipped to Washington und thence to
our sioldiers is wonderful! But this |
work husdiccn done by the few faith?
ful women of the town who seem to I
have some appreciation of the Ingbert]
things of life. Women who have been
willing to sacrifice their personal |
pleasure ami home duties in order to
serve our soldiers at the front, and
they deserve great praise and cred?
it for the work they have done und
'.he sacrifices they have made. There
are a large majority of the women of
the town, however, who have no lot
or parcel in the matter! As more sol?
diers enter the service, the demand
Upon the Red Cross grows heavier
sind these faithful women who have
been doing this work now have upon
them a burden heavier than they can
hear. The Red Cross has been rath?
er severely criticised recently because
some soldiers were permitted to-go to I
camp last week without being fur?
nished with sweaters by the Red
Cross! This is not the lir?! contin?
gent of soldiers that hail to leave
without sweaters, but it was the larg?
est number that has so far gone at j
any one lime.
Tho reason they were not furnish?
ed sweaters is that we did not have
them, and it was impossible to fur?
nish them. The ladies who do the
knitting have worked nobly but the
demand upon them was greater than
they could meet. That's the reason.
If the critics had been doing their
duty for the last year in faithfully
assisting in Red Cross work, this con?
dition may not have arisen. It is not I
much help to say you will knit sweat?
ers and send them to these boys. The
question for you to answer is "Why
havn't you done it before this?" If
you are working in Red Cross work
then you have the right to criticise,
but if you are unwilling to help with
this work you have no right to crit?
icise the good women who are work?
ing. .
Plense boar this in mind.
There must be ns many as fifty
women in this town who have never
done any work at the Red Cross work
rooms; who never even enter these
rooms, and never offer their service.
Your services arc needed and need?
ed badly and the ladies who have
borne the burden of this work would
welcome your assistance. You have
no idea of the satisfaction you will
have from the consciousness of hnv
ing rendered some service and having]
done something useful for others.
Try it, if only as an experiment!
Chairman Red Cross.

Looking ahead into the needs that
these days of fierce fighting will
bring, the American Red Cross is
asking for a nation-wide Linen Show?
er?for the benefit of hospitals. The
plan is to secure this line from the
homes, since present conditions make
purchasing and lelivcring very un?
certain. Every householder can spare
a sheet, a towel, a napkin, or a
handkerchief and by so ding needed
ed linen will be supplied. The nrtl
cle must be new or as good as new,
and freshly laundered.
Below is the allotment for Tazc?
well County Chapter, with measure?
ments. These measurements cannot
be followed, strictly, but the articles
can be secured if each housekeeper
sends in one.
Each branch will receive doflnlU
instructions in a few days, prepared
by Mrs. Lacy Tynes, Chairman of
the Red Cross Linen shower.
Our chapter is requested to send
80 sheets, 04x102 incHos.
400 towels, 30x19 inches.
200 bath towels, 38x19 inches.
