Woman’s Liberty Loan Com mittees The Secretary of the Treasury appointed the National Woman’s Liberty Loan committee. It is the first time in the history of the country that a member of the cabinet of tne United Stales has appointed a national woman’s committee, giving it the same recognition and privileges as other commutes of his depart ment. During his Liberty Loan address at Richmond, Va , April 8, the Secretary said: “We can cot win this war if the men alone tight it, if the et forts of the men alone are to be relied upon, it the resources of the men alone are to be utilized. We can win this war if we resort not only to the material resour, ces of the nation, but to the spiritual and moral resources as well. There is no other element of citizenship in which the spir itual and moral forces are so ar ticulated and expressed as itr-iuo women of a nation and especial, ly of a great free democracy like ours. It is particularly heartening to me that the wo men of the United States have responded with such enthusiasm and spirit to the call of the U. S. treasury department to organize themselves as a part of the great machinery of the nation for making this Liberty Loan successful.” Mrs. Lillie Scales Slaughter, the county chairman, organized thoroughly the women of Oktib beha and they rendered efficient and patriotic service throughout the third Liberty Loan drive.
