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
: 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.
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

pitely more than making the world safe for

In buying Liberty Bonds you are making it

Ijvilized nations to punish the murderers, the

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

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
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. .
