The government is maueus that every eitisen own t kleast a few Liberty bonds, and those who are shown a the record not to have invested at all will be especially J L soiiUted. C Reports from the county chairmen of Liberty Loan committees to W. C. a Werdlaw, districet executive chairman, o sad St. Elmo Massengale, director of M publicity, Indicate absolute optimism for the PNurth loan, despite the high er quotas assigned every territory. "Our people have given their sans r and brothers to this war," they say. "Do you think they are not going to A back up the bobs with their dollars?" ( "Our Southern farmers, too, have been taught the value of bonds as a it Investment, too. The other campaigns It were campalgas of education, but this isn't so necessnry now. Every man who has a bond or two tacked away tj ,.his strong boa or in the bank is S anxious to put a few of the FouriB H lasue beside them." The campaign for the FPorth loan will continue only thre weeks, from September 23 to October 19, inolulive. Within that Ujhn each comniy and state must raise Its quota.

MANY PREMIUMS ARE OFFERED FOR CORN Corn growing is steadily improv ing in Louisiana. Its importance cannot be overestimated. This is the view entertained by the State Fair Association, which offers approxi matel) $1,000 in cash premiums for the best specimens of corn at this year's State Fair. October 80 to No vember 4, inclusive. Some years ago corn was consider ed only a secondary crop in many sections of Louisiana, but the situa tion is changing, due to the Tfforts of the State Fair and other agencies working for the greater upbuildlng of the state's resources, and there seems to be no limit to the possibili ties connected with the production of this product. The premiums are of fered, not only to encourage more farmers to raise corn on a latg. scale, but to impress the corn grow ers with the nectssity of using ad vanced methods, seleceing good seel and following other modern plans tor developing the Industry. That wonderful strides have bten made will be evidcnced by the big exhibition at th," State Fair. It will be in charge of Prof. A. F. Kidder, of the chair of agronomy, Louisiana State University. W'ith the country at war and the need for food ploduction the largest ain history. Uncle Sam is looking to the farmers to produce more than ever before. Every ear of corn pro ducd is a bullet for the Kaiser. Th.i Btate Fair is a school for learningl how best to product it. For further information and catalog - write to W. It.
