PAYING FOR THE WAR.
M M M M
Paying for this war is costly, but, as one mag
azine says, "those who would call the time must
oay the piper "
During the next twelve months the war will
ost us $3,800,000,000. Two billions of this amount
ire to be raised by the great Liberty Loan and
the rest by new taxation.
This means that more than $33 must be spent
or each living human being in the United States,
.fet it isn't much, Great Britain is asking her peo
le for $60 per captia.
To raise a loan of $2,000,000,000 requires in
ensive work by bankers and business men of ev
•ry section. The bonds, to be sold, must be put
m sale at every available place where people gath
ir. Above all, two primary inducements must be
mphasized—a call to patriotic support and the
the offer of a sound and sure investement. People
must be taught to link profit with patriotism.
The response of the bond issue should be such
is to convince both our allies and our enemy of
vhat our participation in the war really means.

PENSION FOR THE WAR OF 1917.
The first claims for pensions, due to deaths
•esulting from the War of 1917, as Washington
tubs this struggle, have been entered in a book
"or the purpose. One was filed by a widow of a
gunner who lost his life on a ship sunk by à sub-
marine and the other was by the mother of a
Guardsman who was killed while on duty at a rail-
We do not object to the state paying the de
oendent of a man killed in the service of the
country, but if the pensions for the present war
iver amount to the grab game of the present sys
tem it will be hard on the honest man. Some
thing should be done to safeguard an enormous
expense after the war- Interest on the debt will
be enough by itself.

West Virginia has set the pace—in at least one

has passed a law that all males lacking an occu

or be subject to forced labor.
The law includes the rich who have money
enough to retire from active participation in the
Like the bees in the beehive, every male in
West Virginia will have to work during the war.
All between 16 and 60 are affected.
The law will probably result in rich loafers leav

The senate and house doesn't agree on war
"axes. The senate thinks there should be heavier
taxes on wealth and lesser taxes on the poor.
There used to be a time when the senate was the
rich man's paradise, but those happy days, it ap
oears, are no more. Now it's the lower house that
is charged with being easier on riches. Yes, Hor

The most important thing to a good army is
a good general. Well, there's Pershing, for in
