"They Will Take The 'Lo der
ship," Says Secretary
In an appeal to the farmers to put
leiri savings' into Government War
vings Certificated,. Secretary of Ag
riculture Houston stated:
"It is the patriott duty of every
citizen who is in a position to do so
to invest in War Savings and Thrift
Stamps and thereby help the Nation
to win this war. The purchase of
even a twenty-five cent Thrift Stamp
is a definite contribution to this end.
"War Savings and Thrift Stamps
foster the habit of thrift in small ex
penditures, make it possible for near
ly every one to purchase what are in
reality small Government bonds, and
offer a unique opportunity to the peo.
ple at once to help their Government
and to economize conveniently for the
purchase of the best investment se
curities in the world. /
"To win this war we must have
both men and money. I know that
every farmer wants to do everything
in his power for the Nation in this
day of trial. He will not only labor
to' produce the necessary foodstuffs
but will also generously contribute of
his means to make it possible for the
men at the front to achieve victory.
I am confident that the farmers of the
land will not permit any other class
to take the leadership in supporting
the Government in this crisis, finan
Sp~ially or otherwise."

PEOPLE VS. GOVERNMENT
As the people reduce their ex
penditures for personal comforts
and luxuries, and put their surplus
earnings into Government loans,
they transfer their buying power
to the Government. Two millions
a day saved and loaned to the Na
tion means two millions to be spent
by the Government to win the war
instead of by private citizens for

What. Your Quarters Will Do.
9 If you have an idea that your quar
ters won't help win the war and do
lots of service when invested in War
Savings and Thrift Stamps, just look
over this table. The "little bonds" are
translated - into terms of soldiers'
lbquipment. Here's how they stack up:
1 Thrift Stamp-Five bullets.
1 War Savings Stamp-One pair of
1 War Savings Stamp-Two woolen
1 War Savings Stamp-Four winter
1 War Savings Stamp-One steel:
'ielmet and $1.14 over.
1 War Savings Stamp-One shelter
tent and part payment on overcoat.
SThose quarters will do the govern
ment lots of good. And remember,
you are not giving them away, but
landing them at 4.27 per cent interest.

HY do you save to build a home? It is us
ually cheaper to pay rent.
Why do you plan to give your children a 4
good education? Will you get any money- 4
dividends from that? .
Why d, you pay fire insurance prnitums

* Why do you call the doctor quichly if the children 4
are ailing? Yo adon't stop to thinh whether you can 4
afford it. Do you? 4
None of these expenditures are what we call good 4
investments. They don't pay in money, yet all pay
the finest of dividends.
Liberty Bonds represent the home, the school, the 4
* children; they represent all the great deeds of our 4
fathers and grandfathers; they represent Bunker
Hill and Yorktown and Gettysburg; they represent 4
the blessed freedom under which we all live and they
also represent the ORDER that makes' freedom blessed.
They represent the boys "over there;" they repre

* They are the defense that shall beep from our shores 4
* the monster criminals who outraged the women of -

They represent the strength that shall restore Bel- 4
glum and rebuild France and avenge Serbia;
* They' are the voice of those who are too young or
