My Dear Ilother: I must write you and tell you bboui myself and how I am getting along or you will think I am some eon. t hve been busy all the time as we worked hard all last week washing and oiling our harness for the parade yesterday, and I must say it was some parade, too, one I will never forget either. I drove my team and they said we had the beBt regiment and our battery was the best in the parade. Some honor, wasn't it? Kow is everybody at home, and is Arnold coming along fine yet? Ask Alvina how her friends are at Minas. they havent wrote for a long while. I am going to try and come home next month. I think I can. I suppose you will be glad to see me and my heart aches to see you once more. Its been a long while since I left. We drill hard every day. about three hours with our horses, and am getting hardened and don't feel It so much any more. Believe me, I am sore today. I was in the saddle for five hours straight yesterday, and can feel It. too. President Wilson reviewed us yester day, and sat In front of the White House and liked It. I took a sly glance at him, as we had to keep our eyes to the front and not look around. It was a beautiful sight, too. I suppose West Hammond is about i the same yet. only all the boys have I left for the war. What do the ' people I have to say about It. anyhow, and how Wtm : mm :i We Give S, & H.

Muffi In the first Liberty Loan campaign the department did not pay for any ad vertising space in newspapers, street cars, billboards, or other mediums. Some newspapers voluntarily advertised tne loan free of cost to the government, as did street car, billboard, and other ad vertising agencies. In addition, many bankers, investment houses, merchants and others, inspired by the same publiJ spirit, bought advertising space or gave j over to the Liberty Loan part of the j advertising space for which they had i contracted. iliere seems to be an impression that the treasury department in the first Liberty Loan campaign applied for free advertising, or paid for advertising in some papers and not in others. That is entirely erroneous. The treasury de partment did not' ask newspaper pub lishers for free advertising, because I realize that the newspaper's only profit-j able commodity is advertising space. ' and that there are many papers which are not able to give free advertising. ' especially in view of the high cost of print paper. I 'e vspi;ers and uress association I loyally co-operated with ihe goverr. i v-nt in the first Liberty Loan. New , n.'id ellti.i il c 'umns were d votcl most generously to the issue. They car ried its nessage into every home in America and deserve great praise for their service of patriotism. The people of the country want to know the finan cial needs of the government anfl the details of the issue of bonds. That is news. This information was given to them in the most comprehensive form possible and the newspapers and press associations have the satisfaction of knowing that they contributed immeas urably to the success of the Loan. Suc cess could not have hcen accomplished without their aid and co-operation. I have no doubt that ths government will have the ame genuine support from them in their news and editorial col umns in connection with the second is sue. The question of paid advertising pre sents a serious problem for the gov ernment. The value of such advertising cannot be iloubted, and if the operation could be governed by the same consid erations as those which determine the action of private enterprises, It would be much implifled. A private enter prise may advertise in a selected num ber of mediums most useful for its purposes, and may control its expendi tures for that purpose without any Imitation except its own desires or abil ity to pay. If the government engages in such a campaign it must advertise in every newspaper and periodical in America without discrimination; all must have equal treatment, and should have equal treatment. The government must be thoroughly democratic and im partial In & matter of this sort. To make the advertising thoromh and ef fective, it should be done on a broad and liberal scale. The cost of such an undertaking would be very great, and would exceed the appropriation which the 'congress lias thus far mad(j avail able for the sale of Liberty Bonds. The question is. however, being care fully considered by the department, but obviously a final decision cannot be reached until more light has been re ceived as to the cost of an effective ad vertising campaign, and until it has been decided what appropriations will bo made available by the congress fori future issues of Liberty Bonds.
