PLAN OUTLINED FOR FIFTH LIBERTY LOAN Many Legislators and Other Prominent State Officials Attend Loan Luncheon At Boise-—Chairman Gwinn Outlines Plan of Campaign. "The Fifth Liberty Loan Is vital ly necessary for the welfare of the boys In the service" Is the opinion held by more than 7 5 members of the Idaho legislature who attended a Victory Loan luncheon given by the Idaho state central Liberty Loan committee Tuesday evening al the Boise Commercial club, and this message they will bring home to the people of their community at the adjournment of the legislature: Chairman Gwinn Speaks. "In the four Liberty Loan cam paigns," said Mr. Gw'inn, "Idaho has subscribed more than $44.000,000. With 31,000 subscribers in the first loan we increased until we had ! 1 1 1,000 in the fourth. Including (lie money we have invested in War Savings stamps, Idaho has invested $51,000,000 In government securi-j ties, or more than $125.00 for each J man, woman and child in our state. ! ■ In announcing the Fifth Liberty Loan, Secretary Glass of the treas*] ury department says that an intens- 1 C01I- ! f ive popular campaign ducted commencing April 21. and 1 that the loan will not only he sub-| scribed, but will be oversubscribed, "Our slogan in the former cam- j paigns was 'Idahoans, Don't Debate will lie It, Do It!" In the Victory Loan cam paigu let your slogan be 'Let's Fin ish tlie Job.' And you, gentlemen of the legislature, I want you to pledge j yourselves to assist your counties to ' to put over this fifth and last loan. I Let every American show his loy ally in a pmctical way by subscrib-j ing Idaho's quota in the Victory j Loan." ; In his address Governor Davis È. said that "in other campaigns our boys were going away and it was an , K easy matter to have community ■ Liberty loan meetings because ev ■ eryone was interested in the boys w at the front. Now that the war ■ Is over, however, we should be H equally Interested in seeing the \ E hoys come home.

Governor Davis then read a tele gram sent for the occasion by Jas. K. Lynch, governor of the twelfth federal reserve district, which is as follows: "Warm congratulations to the members of the Idaho senate and house of representatives on the splendid showing Idaho has made In each of the four Liberty Loans al ready completed. It is a record of which the state may well be proud." "The government is again asking the people to rally to its financial support and it counts upon citizens their full share, ! of Idaho doing with the same confidence it reposed in these citizens of Idaho who were! soldiers of the 91st division, which at a time when divisions on its J flanks were faltering and even fall ! ins»; back, it pushed ahead and stead ily clung' to every yard gained. "We must not permit ounelvc* to 1 be deceived by the fact that an ar ! tiustice lias been signed in conduit - j 1 ing that obligations growing out of war are ended. Contracts entered into must be met. Our men have to j he brought home and deniobolized. It is of the utmost importance that the Victory Loan should bo sub scribed as fully as the four prior loans." j ' b I states to Garcia during the Spanish American war, and told the legisla tors that they must be carirers of j a similar message and take back Senator E. \V. Whitcomb referred the message sent by the United ; to the people of their home counties the knowledge of the great neces sity for the floating of the coming , loan. Speaker Kiger made a few pertt nent remarks regarding the loyalty of Idahoans, and said there can be no doubt but that the Gem state would be found with a full quota \ when the total subscriptions were tallied up. Remarks on the coming loan were also made by many legislators, each seeming most optimistic over the outcome of the loan in Idaho. Building New Garage. Messrs. Bryant and Hosly are pushing to completion their immense i and up-to-date garage on Johnson j avenue, immediately north of the Fidelity State bank. The construc j tion of this modern automobile es tablishment at the county seat, is absolute and powerful evidence of the faith of the builders in the permanence and future encouraging prospects of Orofino and will be a credit to our city.

What the German schools incul cate Into Us pupils today, the Father lund will carry out tomor row. it was said that the German hoolmaster really made the war against France in 1S70. That the same commanding influence is form ing the vision of the yong German mind today will be readily believed in the light of the following re markable letter, written by a Prus sian school girl of social standing, to a French teacher friend in Switz erland. The letter was sent to the Clearwater Republican by a lady .subscriber al Pierce, and we gladly publish it because of its vivid show ing of the sentiment carried in the minds of the young of Germany: Fran kfort-on-Oder 20th July, 196. ! to I your thoughts of our j m resulted from sheer ig-; is as the and the In al of were! , ( ,ui,i have its fall to ar - My Dear J.ouise: '1 lie contents of your last letter j a hurl me lnid 1 not known that glorious war aorance. j dered effi in ol old faslii V m aie in a country ren inate by the influence ! jned ideas of liberty, a eountry wlii.di is at least two centu lies behind ours.

You have a great deal to learn be fore you call come up to our stand ard. and I can assure you that what has been clone so far, is a mere bagatelle compared with what will follow. As a matter of fact, there is but one race worthy of ruling the wbrld and which has already attained the highest degree of civi lization. That race is ours, the Prussians, for though we Germans in general are the lords of the world, the Prussian is undoubtedly the lord par excellence among the 'Jermons.

I jWant Road Up The South Fork south Fork Road Favored by People of Clearwater River Section— Will Tap Big Territory ! fcctcd at Reports from different sections tributary to the South Fork of the Clearwater river seem to favor a highway along that stream to con nect with the North and South high way at Grangeville and the Lewis and Clark highway at Kooskia. The proposed highway would fol low the South Fork from Kooskia to Stites and Harpster, then to the lorest reserve line thence to Grange ville and give an outlet to a large territory over a good road. Tin highway as a connecting link tween the two great highways would also give the traveler an op portunity of using a river road and escape several high mountains dur ing the winter months.
