GIGANTIC PREPARATION SAES HALF MILLION LIVES Idaho people are expected to con j tinue War Savings investments throughout the year 1919. "Every citizen a Saver," is the slogan for the coming 12 months. Executive Secretary Allen B. Eaton, of the Idaho War Savings committee,« brings this word from the conference of War Savings workers held in San Francisco in January, and to which he was called by President James K. Lynch of the Twelfth Federal Reserve Bank. Mr. Eaton gives this report to Idaho: "The conference of War Savings workers held last month in San Fran cisco discussed every phase of the work for the coming year. Liberty Loan and War Savings workers from every state > n the district attended the conference. Louis B. Franklin, head of the National War Loan Organiza tion, came from Washington, D. C., to deliver to the western people the "key note" message of the conference. "Mr. Franklin stressed particularly the immense preparations Amcrica had projected to make possible the literal swamping of the German mili tary system. It was the knowledge of this great preparation under way in America that did more than any other single thing to break the spirit of the German forces. "'By July of 1919, Mr. Franklin said, 'we would have had 4,000,000 men in France and similar number in train ing camps in America. There would have been 16.000,000 rifle« with ample ammunition for their use; over 500,000 cannon and other munitions and sup plies in amounts to stagger the imag ination. There would have been a tank to every 75 vards of our line and ten tons of deadlv gas to every ton Germany could have possiblv pro duced. In addition there would have been complete mastery of the air with bombing planes enough- to wipe out entire regiments and practically all the larger cities behind the German lines. " 'With 16,000,000 tons of shipping we would have been carrying these men and supplies to Europe. All Ger many knew of these tremendous pre parations and had the good sense to quit before she was actually. blasted out of existence. Already we had put 3.000.000 men in the battle line by Tulv of 1918—.twice the number Amer ica'* agreement with the Allies called for by that time. These preparation« were necessary to overwhelm Ger many and crush her into submission had she continued to resist. Because of these gigantic and unpamlled military enterprises on the part of Amcrica victory came months sooner than it could have otherwise been ex pected and hundreds of thousands of lives of our magnificent younh men were saved "'Now all this must be paid for. The government sti'l ><ee •>. monev Th.. pennle must continue to save and invest their savings in government se curities, loaning their money to the For Sale Good Feeders, 2 and 3-year-old Steers. Will contract them back after feeding out. A sure shot to get your money out of your hay. Turner Livestock and Realty Co. nation that the nation may be able to meet the obligations the war has placed upon it.' "Th e call to invest in War Savings Stamps is still a patriotic appeal and will surely be met as such. It will certainly give joy to Americans of all walks of life to know that by loaning to the government adequate funds for the enormous preparations we madeko rush the war to early victory, we have been able to prevent the death of thousands upon thousands of Ameri can soldiers and save ourselves from the agony of long months of warfare. "Every citizen a saver"—is the slo gan for 1919. In order to measure up to the full stature of citizenship, every man, woman, and child in America must figure on how much he can save week by week and month by month throughout the year. This will help provide the government with funds which it must have, and it will build for the individual a fund for his own benefit. Who will refuse to help pay for lives saved and a great cause won? ***************** ★ FRANKLIN NEWS * ***************** » Mrs. Dr. Payne, who has been having a siege of the influenza for sev eral weeks, is able to be up and about the house.
