BKFOKK the declarations
of war there were hun
dreds of thousands of
American mothers enrolled
in organizations to keep tin*
nation out of war.
The prime object of those
organized mothers was to
keep their dear sons at home
in America and out of the
death and destruction of a
war which these blessed
mothers sincerely and hon
estly, >cs and patriotically,,
believed was not ours.
Hut now the war is ours.
And the fine American boys
are in tin* army and navy tie
fending their country.
The best way now for the
fond mothers—and sisters
and sweethearts too—to get
their boys back to their homes
and back in their constructive
life’s work, is to get the war
ended successfully and
quickly and to see the mili
tary forces disbanded and the
boys released from sen ice.
The best way for these
dear women to get their boys
back is to form organizations
now to speed tile war and end
the war.
TIIL mothers’ leagues
which were organized
to pr e v eyi t the war
should now be reorganized
to prosecute the war, to aid
those lighting the war and to
hurry the war to a success!ul
and speeds conclusion.

THESE victors leagues
can not only support
and encourage the light

camps, but tlies can Ik* a
mighty moral force to sec
that corruption and favorit

fulls and successfully without
sacrificing the safety of the
men at the front to the self

The mothers’ leagues of
victors can discourage strikes
and speed production and
they can themselves supply,
