WHICH DO YOU CHOOSE? b Believing that the winning of the war is the 1 greatest business project with which America, v and all the world, has to cope, Richard H. Ed f monds is devoting the major portion of his ordi fnarily strictly business publication, The Manu facturers' Record, to that end. Incidentally, he lhas developed into one of the most forceful writ- Jers of the war. e I The following, reproduced from the front page Cl 1 of the current issue, where it appears under the G f caption, ''Heaven or Hell, Freedom or Slavery, j Which Do You Choose?" is an irresistible argu v f ment for investment in Liberty Bonds : Liberty Bonds stand for freedom and Heaven. Germany stands for slavery and hell. . Which will you have? : Germany is fighting to enslave mankind and fnake of all the world a hell' under German dom ination. : America and our Allies are fighting to save liuman freedom and make a Heaven on earth. The battle is on ; we will have one or the other. To the extent that you back our nation in every vay in your power and buy Liberty Bonds to he utmost stretch of your ability you are work ng for freedom and Heaven. - To the extent that ymi-fail to do your share 'ou are helping Germany in its effort to enslave nankind in an earthly hell, ruled by the vilest jirutes that earth ever knew. v ' You cannot shirk your individual responsibil j ty without being a traitor to your country, a f Iraitor to every soldier who has offered his life i 'p save you and yours, a traitor to outraged wom i tnhood, a traitor to God and to all mankind. No one else can do your duty. If you knew that the Liberty Loan would be versubscribed a hundred-fold, your duty to sub- 1 irrihc would be iust as ereat as thouerh vou .,; - - - rUnew the needed amount would not be raised. e. t! r B-S rv"i What others do does not relieve you from your J3i l asponsibility any more than the religion of your l! eighbor relieves you from the responsibility of 'j ;ligious life, nor any more than the protection 35 jy a neighbor of his family through life insur- i iice releases you from obligations to protect lj our family in the same way. ? In buying Liberty Bonds you are helping to uy liberty for our country and all mankind. In buying Liberty Bonds you are protecting our loved ones from the fearful crimes wreaked ! V savagery upon the women and children of 1 eltrinm and "France. "i i In buying Liberty Bonds you are standing by 3 iie millions of our beloved boys who over in urope are being blinded and maimed and mur i ired in your defense and mine. In buying Liberty Bonds you are doing in- pitely more than making the world safe for i pnocracy, for you are helping to make the rl !it1(1 RJlff "fnr vnur vvifV nnrl vmir rJoiiorhf av o-nrl 1 ibur mother, and the millions of other women v 'pose honor would be gone if once the German i rast broke down the barriers of armies and V Ivies which have stood between us and a : ! Vnade in Germany" hell, or a "made in hell" prmany. In buying Liberty Bonds you are making it at j issible for civilization to beat back barbarism, Christianitv to drive hark atheism fnr the Ijvilized nations to punish the murderers, the l tragers, the manglers of babies, the highway jsn, the looters, the freebooters, the destroyers of temples, the wreckers of cities, the "bully" of the world, the only people who glory in war as a holy thing and preach f rightfulness as a duty. These are some of .the things which Liberty Bonds mean, and unless you buy to the utmost 'of your power you become a slacker, and a slacker, whether financially or physically, is a coworker with the men guilty of all these beastly crimes. Which do you choose? Will you stand by America and its soldiers? Will you stand by our devoted Allies? Will . you stand by outraged France and Bel gium and Italy and Serbia by buying Liberty Bonds; or, v Will you be false to all that is sacred on earth, false to man and to Heaven? There is only one true answer possible, and deep down in your heart you should make your answer before Almighty God, and vow: s "I will buy Liberty Bonds to the last dollar I can invest for world salvation from German damnation." MAY PHOTOGRAPH IN SOME CAMPS UNDER NEW RULE INDUSTRIAL REPLACEMENTS. In Great Britain, where a million and a half women have replaced men in various lines of in dustry, they form 36 per cent of the total num ber of employees in munitions work, and in banking and finance nearly 25 per cent. In com mercial occupations they average 16.9 and in en gineering firms 7.14 per cent. These figures re fer only to the women known to fill vacancies made by the withdrawal of man power. Many thousands are working in other occupations not so directly affected by war-conditions. . While the replacement of men by women has not been so great in this country, it has been extensive and is progressing at a rapid rate. Reports received from the United States Em ployment Service show that women have engaged in railroad tank painting, hardware industry pro cesses, garage management, and ranch work, as well as many other industries untried by them before the war. Processes in hardware indus tries include the izzsk of screw-machine hands, spot welders, gas welders, dip braziers, and drill press and bench work, Among other new occu pations to which they-have been called are: bag gage porters, ushers, aircraft assemblers, tele graph operators, photographers, and bond sales men. Women are showing great aptitude for occu pations heretofore filled by men and that many will continue in their new callings after the war seems assured. A radical change ln the attitude of the government toward photography about the camp has - just been au thorized. Hitherto it has been the rule that no pictures should be taken In any camp without an official permit, ap plication for whiehhad to be made to the committee on public Information. The entire handling of this matter, has recently been turned over to th& director of military Intelligence who is also the chief military censor, and it has been decided In the intenest of public convenience and of economy to remove many of the restrictions hitherto imposed. Hereafter permits from Washington will- not be required for the taking of ordinary photographs about open camps or military establishments void of activities of a confidential na ture. The term "open camp" by the new regulations just authorized, is taken to Include divisional, replace ment and officers training camps. In these camps the Intelligence officer is charged with the authority to con trol the activities of photography with due avoidance of discrimination.

Information regarding farm lands suitable for allotment to returned soldiers is being sought by Franklin K. Lane, secretary of the interior. He says : "All of the English countries engaged in the war except our own are endeavoring in a gen erous and comprehensive manner to provide farms or rural employment for returning soldiers who may desire this. "This country will be with the same obligation at the close of the war. More than a million sol diers will have been drawn from the farms, and an equal number should be returned to the land if they desire it." The fundamental requirement of the govern ment's undertaking is land suitable for small farms. There is much land in West Florida spe cially adapted to the purpose, It is, cheap. It will produce good crops. It is suitable in every way. If the advantages which we have to offer are placed before SecretaryLane it is certain that large numbers of the returned soldiers will lo cate here and will have an important part in the agricultural development of this section. Other sections are making strenuous efforts to locate the soldier-farmers. No section can offer them so much as West Florida. We owe it to ourselves and to the .home-seekers to acquaint them with the agricultural possibilities to be found here. We have spent over $120,000,000 just for sta ple supplies for-our army, such as flour, bacon, rice, etc. Every subscriber to the Liberty Loan helps feed our ssfcdiers. We have spent over $o00,000,000 to clothe our soldiers. , Every subscriber to the Liberty Loan has had a part in this care of the Americans who are fighting in France. . Despite the war, GreatBritain produced near ly 250,000,000 tons of coal' last year. . ORDINANCE NO. 13.
