I I Not TO THE PUBLIC: Certain persons are making the statement that St Joseph county has already subscribed to its full quota and that it is "over the top." Such statements are absolutely false as no totals have yet been made and appearances are that we yet have many hundred thousand to be subscribed. Workers must not let up on the magnificent work they did Saturday, but must continue with the same vigilance so that by tonight every person in the county will have had an opportunity to subscribe to their full quota, which in many, many instances some have not done. Try and reduce the work that our sales organization will Iiave to do after this voluntary drive is over. Try your very best to enable us to demomtrate at least to the outside world that we, as a people, are at least 100 percent patriotic.
