FOR BIG BOND DRIVE' MIl
SIXTH DISTRICT ORGANIZED FOR
THIRD LIBERTY LOAN Bogal
FIELD FORCE IS NOW BUSY
Educational Work Awakens People Ever
To Dangers Facing
e Atlanta. - With the Third Liberty
Lt Loan campaign approaching, every ef
fort is being exerted by the sixth Fed
eral Reserve District Executive Com
mittee to complete the organization of
t every county. For two months a force
of forty field representatives has been
paving the way for the loan with a
le great educational campaign. Commit
tees have been re-organized and ev
erything is in readiness for the drive
)U which is expected to begin early in
The reports from field represen
tatives on the organization work have
been very encouraging to the execu
rd tive committee. It is realized, how
ever, that it will take the combined ef
re forts of the bankers, manufacturers,
in merchants and farmers to put the
Sixth District "over the top" in this
Oi campaign. The minimum allotment
a-. for this district in the second cam
paign was over-subscribed, but it will
', take harder work to make the Third
it Liberty Loan a success.
,nd Committees Organized
The central organization will be the
he same as in the previous campaign, M.
1gs B. Wellborn, chairman of the board of
the Federal Reserve Bank being chair
e, man. W. C. Wardlaw is chairman of
in. the executive committee. St. Elmo
Massengale again will direct the pub

ien perienced sales manager has been Shi
ack placed in charge of the field force.
be- It has been repeatedly pointed outs
lass by Government officials that the re
sult of the world conflict depends
very largely upon the success of the
successive bond issues. The full force
of America, in resources, men and b
money, must be hurled against the
ebe Hun to crush the military ambitions
of Germany and make the world safe y
from the menace of Prussian auto
on crats. This cannot be accomplished
unless the government is given the
1use of every dollar needed to lurnish
lud supplies and ammunition for the army
which is being sent to France.
Money is not taken from circulation
shun when invested in Liberty Bonds. It
is spent right here at home in the
purchase of supplies and furnishes em
die ployment to those engaged in work on
government contracts. The expendi
tare of these great sums of money has
(not made this section of the country prosm -
Af- perous. The war is responsible for
the high prices farmers are receiving
for their products. The wheels of the
me great industries have been kept busy
and the wage earners are drawing
ghty high salaries.
ft, Whether the next bond issue is a ei
success will depend upon the effort
orfnl of every individual in the district. The Nc
y money cannot be raised without per- tue
sonal sacrifice. The Government ap- ofti
iZZY peals to every individual to invest to Loui
bble. the extent of his ability. ishi

'ant to cans.,-It is their war.
We are fighting for the "freedom on
t o de of the seas"-the farmers' right to sell and
e cotton, corn, wheat, rice, etc., abroad. of
The determination of the United Sm
nect States to send supplies and food to the
o Allies sent the price of cotton to 30 anc
cents and above, and put the price of lin
r di e food crop up to the highest figure in
please fifty years.
If the Allies win this war American ling
farmers always can find a ready mar- 1
ing ket in Europe for their products. Thou- of
sands of ships are being built to send
U de the crops abroad after the war. But
we must win to do it. Germany plans
to invade this country just as it over
rn Belgium. E]vidence in the hands
,, of goverfhment officials proves this
statement. Southern farmers are en
Sjoying the benefit of their crops now,
but if Germany invades this country
t tntheir wives and daughters will be
isn a forced to raise crops for Germany
just as Belgian' and French women

be used to feed Germany and their n
crops will bring them nothing. se
Farmers Depended Upon hi
The government always has depend.
ed upon the Southern farmer to do
his duty, whether to raise more food, a
fight or finance. They have been ex- h
empted from fighting thus far to en.
igh able them to raise more. food, and
Sthey have received the highest prices h
for their products. Now the govern- is
ment wants the farmer to help finance
the war. It is just as much his duty
