or Bonds: Will You Stand tor It?
Nevada is behind 40 per cent in its
subscription to Liberty bonds and but
three days remain in which to make
good. And it must be done, or the
state will he charged with its first
failure in any call that has ever been
made upon it.
No doubt peace talk and German
propaganda have been responsible for
the inanition so far, but neither one
should be given any consideration, for
the way things look today, peace is as
far off as it was a number of months
ago. And besides, we are not ready for
peace and should not be until the hoys
over there give the signal. When they
have accomplished what they have
started to do to the Hun will be time
to talk peace, and until that time ar
rives we must put up the money to
keep them going. All talk th?l they,
the soldiers, should buy bonds for their
own maintenance should be given no
consideration whatever. It is imperti
nent to even suggest such a thing.
Regarding peace propaganda, ti: fal
lowing telegram was received yester
day by Dr. Lee of the County Council
of Defense from Hal Lemmon and it
tells without frills or romance where
that "stuff" comes from. People should
read Mr. Lemmon's wire and then re
read it: then go down in their pockets
and buy another bond. His telegram is
as follows :
"Dr. S. L. Lee, Carson, Nev. :
"There must be no weakening of the
war spirit in Nevada. It would be in
tolerable if the peace quest ions should
in any way become effective German
propaganda. They are intended by
Germany for just that. You will re

doughboys got to Europe. As they

miles north of Laon, fifteen miles from

Belgium and throw them into the Ar-
