TO THE COUNTRY
In a Message to the American People
He Felicitates Them. for Their
Victory Behind the Lines and
Urges Buyers to Hold
Washington, May 5.-Secretary Mc
Adoo, on a completion of the third
Liberty Loan, sends this word of~ ap
preciation tonight for the nation, and
the boys across the seas:
"The people of the United States
may well felicitate themselves upon
the triumphant success of the third
Liberty Loan. It is a most heartening;
manifestation of their patriotism and
of their inflexible determination to
support our gallant army and navy
until a victorious decision for America
"I should like to thank the thou
sands of men and women throughout
the country, the Liberty Loan com
mittee, bankers and business men, pa
triotic organizations, press associa
tions, newspapers' and magazine; in
fact, every class of' our citizenship,
white and colored alike-for the irre
spective assistance and co-operation
in this great victory behind the lines,
without which a victory on the front
cannot be achieved. ''he enormous
number of subscribers, indicating a
wide-spread distribution of the loan
among the people, is particularly
gratifying. This is the soundest form
)f national war finance--the distribu
tion of the loan among the people
themselves. The results show that
every section of the nation has joined
in sending a heartening message to
our gallant sons across the sea, that
we are trying to do our part at home,
even though we cannot do it as glori
ously as they are doing theirs upon
KEEP YOUR BONDS
"I earnestly hope that everv one
who has bought liberty bonds wvill try'
to keep them for the period of the war
at least. The slogan now should be,
'Keep your Liberty bond.' No one
does his share fully if he merely buys
a bond andl then sells it im'mediately
below par on the market. Of course,
if necessity compels the sale of Lib
erty bonds, no just complaint can be
madle; if each and every purchaser
keeps his Liberty bond he helps to
orotect the credit of the government
by maintaining market for the bonds
at par which is a very helpful thing
in wvar time, and he also renders a
more essential servIce to our soldiers
and sailors in the field by practicin'e
those economies and savings which re.
