When Lewis B. Franklin, director of the War Loan Organization, was in San Francisco recently, he revealed that on (he day the armistice was signed there was in progress in Wash ington a meeting to formulate plans for the continuous sale of Liberty Bonds—such a plan as governs the sale of Thrift and War Savings Stamps. Moreover, the Liberty Bond ; and War Stamps work wae to be closely coordinated. j These plans were immediately dis-' carded when the Gormans signed the armistice and when Secretary of the Treasury Glass took office he an nounced that the Victory Liberty Loan would be the last. In the face of sug gestions that the Victory Loan be put on a cold commercial basis, he added that the men making- tlie.se sugges patriotism the would.. Jlions, were discounting the .. • L-dmO'd which we place on mAit upon a plane with the .paper ot private corporations. j The banks used to buy United States bonds bearing 2 per cent in-tetest be fore the war. That's how agood the credit of the United States i.s, ! 'r> .- . The $100 you put into a Victory Lib eity Bond will be worth $ 1 g.5 This in- . terest when prices settle doyp. A dol lar is worth what you can buy W-ith It. Better have the bonds of the United Slates In the hands of 30,000.000 ordinary citizens than concentrated in the hands of a few rich men. Think I of that when Uncle Sam offers you a Victory Liberty Bond,, Don't think you have sacrificed be cause you may be paying for your in terest-bearing Fourth Liberty Loan Bonds. These fellows back,from France | legless, armless or sightlesi^on't think thê> have sacrificed. They simply think they did their duty. The Victory Loan coming in April is the last Liberty Loan. Then the war is over for yo.i. it will be still going on for 1,000,000 Americans in France. Wedding Bells Ring ! Miss Stella Martin of Oakley was married to Dewey Jones of Hurley Idaho.
