UIjlL. '. U Ji. -XM ill 4 m Wl fsW Wiiil I. oil MlhiLjr i&ring Back The Boys off This CoromTOEftf-? Our boys, the boys from this town and this county and this state, are fighting the Huns. They are in the trenches in France, they are sailing the U-boat-infested seas, they are going "over the top" in the face of German cannon and machine gun fire. Many, many more of our boys are now training and will soon be in France, and more are yet to be called. And, remember, these are our boys; those who are near and dear to us. They are doing their ALL. They are giving their ALL. They are prepared to make the extreme sacrifice that our homes, our town, our nation, may escape the ravages of the Hun. We want them one and all to come back to us litem iSuckf Will you help to provide them with the things they need, with clothes and food and munitions, that they may complete as quickly as possible the terrible task assigned to them? Will you support our boys while they are fighting for us, fighting the German autocracy that seeks to destroy our ideals of liberty and justice? Compared to their heroic sacrifice our part Is but small that of providing the funds to keep them equipped; to build and man the ships that will trans port their food, their clothes, their guns and their ammunition, and to pay for these things. Yes, we, the people of this community, will sup port our boys. We will do it by buying bonds of the Third Liberty Loan: bv tliese bonds we can; by making such sacrifices as are neces o ao tnis. ihat will be our support for Our Boys. uymi sary T ex h iff C Liberty District of J.
