ST. JOSEPH, - - - LA. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1917. TIREASON AND THE LIBERTY BOND. The support of the government is the citizen's supremest duty. It transcends every obligation. To neg leot it or fail in its performance when the nation is at war is treason. There is no option about it. It is a duty imposed by the organic law of the land. To disregard it is a crime agalnst the government, our fellows and ourselves. And the extent of our ability to subscribe to the "liberty" loan Is not to be measured by our ex cers of income over outgo in times of peace. By conscript we are compelling our young men to join the army and face possible death. They are allowed no choice. Of them we demand absolute self-surrender. If it is refused or evad ad to jail they go. Can we, should we, will we, whoare left behind in the com fort and safety that their valor secures to us, hesitate a single moment to deprive ourselves of anything and everything that we can do without that they may be provided and equipped with all they need and what ever Is necessary to bring this fright fil carnage speedly to an end? The man or woman who now fails to reduoe hie or her expenditure to the lowest possible minimum consistent with decency and health and to buy government bonds with all that he or she can save or make is guilty of treason. Let there be no mistake about this. Bring yourself to under standing of this fact and act upon it. Then make all those you come in con aoct with undestand it also. When the roll of those who have helped the nation with their money ac oording to their ability to make or save is called, every adult in the United States should be present or ac counted for. Those whose absence is nexpdained will be unworthly cititzene Of this country and unentitled to enjoy the protection and benefita of the best government that men have yet devised.-Commerce and Finance. "Treason" Is strong, as a definition of the enumerated sins of omislsion. Technically, "slacker" would be a eloser t. Butas oo-relative of the "uoaeeript of our young men in the army," nothing can be too strong as a appeal or a demand upon the self Oasuloe of the national citisenship, it their support. Furthermore, and most assuredly, no less response than that asked by the governmemt for the liberty loan subscription, and so strongly urged in the quoted article can win this war. What is askeddoes not equal the tribute rendered by Great Britain, or France, to end "this frightful carnage," and save.the world for democracy.-Vickeburg Herald.
