MATAWAN PROUDLY FLOATS LIBERTY LOAN HONOR FLA6 In Spite of Discouraging Start the Itorougli Wins Out Handsomely and With Some to Spare By Special Correspondent. MATAWAN, May 6:—Matawan proudly looked upon lier honor flag which was unfurled next to the huge borough service flag in front of the postoflice Saturday afternoon. The flag signified that Matawan and vicinity had gone "over the top" in the drive for the third Liberty loan and had earned the right to announce that fact to the world. The winning of the flag came after a great effort upon the part of the Liberty Loan Committee. When the drive was started to raise the $167,000 alloted to Matawan the borough did not at once respond to the pleadings of the committee. For a time it look ed as if Matawan would succeed in raising not more than $90,000. In spite of this fact the committee kept busy and with the urging of the chairman and other leaders in the raising of the allotment, it was an nounced Wednesday night by the chairman that only $4 7,000 remained to be raised for Matawan to go over the allotment. The committee kept at work all day Thursday and Friday and on Friday night at a big patriotic meeting in the high school auditori um it was announced that the bor ough was only $25,000 short of the required allotment. The meeting Friday, which was the most enthusiastic ever seen in the borough, resulted in the sale of $15,000 worth of bonds. The remain ing $10,000 worth of bonds were subscribed early Saturday morning·, with many thousands of dollars to spare; $135,000 of this amount was subscribed through the Farmers and \lnrp>nintc Viit innal Rn nif KEYPORT UTERARY CLUB Discission of Music Followed Short Business Session—Social Hour.
