Germany is lighting to en? slave niank ind und make of all the world 'i hell under (lermun domination. America and our Allies are lighting to save human freedom and make a Heaven on earth. The battle is on; we will have one or the oilier To the extent that you back our nation in every way ill your power and buy Liberty Ponds to the utmost strength of your ability you are working for freedom and Heaven. To the extent that you fail to do your share you are helping Germany iti its effort to enslave mankind in an earthly hell, ruled by the vilest brutes thai the earth over knew. You cannot shirk your indi vidual responsibility without being a traitor to your country, It traitor to every soldier who has otfered his life to save you and yours, a traitor to outraged womanhood, a traitor to God and to all mankind. No one else can do your duty'. If veu knew the Liberty Loan would be oversubscribed a hun? dred-fold, your duty tu subscribe would he just as great as though you knew the needed amount would not be raised. What others do does not re? lieve you from your responsibil? ity any more than the protec lion by a neighbor of his family through life insurance releases you from obligations to protect your family in the -111110 way. In buy ing Liberty Bonds you nre helping to buy Liberty for our country and all mankind. In buying Liberty Bonds you are protecting your loved ones from the fearful crimes wreak? ed by savagery upon the women and children of Belgium and France. In buying Liberty Bonds yon nre standing by the millions of our beloved boy s who over in Europe are beiug blinded and maimed and murdered in your defense and mine. In buying Liberty Bonds you are doing infinitely more than making the world safe for dem? ocracy, for yon nre helping to make the world safe for your wife und your daughter and your mother, and the millions of other women whoso honor would be gone if once the Ger? man beust broke down the bar? riers of armies and navies which havo stood between us and a "made in Germany " hell, or h "made in hell" Germany. In buyiug Liberty Bonds you are making it possible for civil ization to beat buck barbarism, for Christianity to drive back atheism, for the civilized na? tions to punish the murderers, tho outrngors, the manglers ofl babies, the highwaymen, the lootors, tho freebooter*, tho de stroyerti of temples, the wreck? ers of cities, the "bully" of the world, tho only people who glo ry in war as a holy thing nnd preach frightfillness os a duty. These uro some of the tilings which Liberty Bonds mean, und unless you buy to the utmost of your power you become u slack? er, nnd a slncker, w bet her )i nuciully or physically, is a co worker with the men guilty of nil these beastly crimes; Which do you choose? Will you stand by America and its soldiers? Will you stand by our devot? ed Allies? Will you stand by outraged Franco nnd Belgium and Italy and Serbia by buying Liberty Bonds; or, Will you be false to all that is snored on earth, false to man und to Heaven? There is only one true answer possible, and deep down in >our heart you should make your answer before Alinightv (Jod, und vow: "1 will buy Liberty Bonds |.q tho last dollar 1 can invest,, for world salvation from German damnation."
