Roumapia BOY BUYS GHMRMJH Waiter Johnson, Young Lad fn In!an1 Steel Plant, Has Bond cf Every issue Now, The first of the Fourth Liberty; Loan bonds sold at the Inland works of the Republic Iron & Steel company, East Chicago, Indiana, was taken by little Walter Johnson, ths office boy. That manly youth, by far too young and too small to carry a gun in his Country's honor and service, has proudlyjLtid patriotically taken a bond from each issue that has been made and is the possessor of a generous supply of War Savings Stamps also . This true son of America measures his ability to buy bonds right up to the very last cent of his income. To him the honor of his Country is sacred. The himdless arms of Belgium children a painful reality and his respect for the purity of womanhood is eloquently typi lied by his devotions to the memory of the pood mother whose grave he deco rates with flowers. Bet the man who is inclined to say with cowardly lips. 'T can't." think of this ycuth who can -orepo nearly all the pleasures of youth that he may be able to buy Stamps and Bonds. To him those things mean the destruction of brutali tyy, the happy return of our boys, the re-uniting of broken homes, the gather ing of orphans under a kind and pro tecting hand, an eternal peace and the honest diffusion of American ideals throughout the world. Walter is the son of Mr Henry John son who is justly proud of him and we.l he might be, for every good man on earth honors such a youth. To one of such a spirit Old Glory is more than a symbol of freedom and prosperity to a sinple nation. It means the world's honor and political salvation. It is a shame, that "Uncle Sam" has not a special badge for such a case, so that all mieht know the wearer to be one whose whole heart, soul, blood, bone, fiber and muscle are dedicated to the honor and glory of America and the up lifting of the human race. Our b st hits off to little Walter. WHAT CITY WILL GET THE HONOR? What town, city or township in Ia.ke county will hav e the proud honor cf hrv -ing a battleship or battle tank named after it when the Fourth Liberty Loan is c er. The 240 communities which make the best record in obtaining subscriptions to the fourth Liberty loan will have the privilege either of naming one of the ships being built for the government, or it namir.g a tank that is to participate in the western front fighting. Announce ment of the plan was made tcnight by the Liberty loan publicity bureau. Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, wife of the presiu. nt, who has been naming the ships, has agreed to allot 120 of the vessels for li e purpose of the national contest. Each of the twelve federal reserve clistric's will be assigned ten ships And ten tanks, and the conditions of th? con test within the district will be determ ined by the reserve bank These may be bised on total or proportionate subscrip tions, size of per capita purchase, or number of subscribers. The only re quirement is that the tank or ve?ei shall be named after a town. city, town ship, cr county. The size, interest ra!. ard other terms of ttie ior'h Libeity ban were considered today by Secretary MoA loo in onference wiih bis treasury ar'viser-.
