SHORT TERM BONDS AT HIGH INTEREST FOR VICTORY LOAN Fifth Issue of Liberty Bonds Wi Be Most Attractive Investment of All, in the Opinion of Finan cial Experts The fifth issue of Liberty bonds, rr "Victory Bonds" as they will be called, will offer the investor the most attrac tive opportunity of any issue made by the government, according to a tentative agreement made by Seero tary of the Treasury Carter Glass with the ways and means committee of the National House of Represeta tives. It is copsidered probable that the bonds will pay a higher rate of inter est than any of the previous issue-, bu' they yill be issued for shorter terms, maturing in from bne to five years. The government does not wish to assume.the obligation of a high ir terest rate for a long period of year::, but is willing to pay an attractive rats during the present unsettled cond- tions. It is expected that events will so shape themselves in the next few years that a holder of these short term bonds, after drawing a good in terest rate until they mature, will then be able to "cash them In" and invert the returns in business or in other forms of securities at an advantage ous time. For this reason it is ex pected that the new bonds will find a ready market. Secretary Glass announces that an intensive popular campaign for the Victory loan will start not later than April 21. It is not expected that any definite statement as to interest tax ex emptions or other details will be made much in advance of that date, as con ditions are constantly changing. But that the new bonds wilt be made an at tractive investment is considered cer tain. Secretary Makes Statement An official statement issued by Se retary Glass follows: "The Victory Iiberty Loan campaign will begin not later than Alpril 21. The requirements of the treasury are im perative and cannot be financed with out such a campaign. The form and terms of the securities to be issued remain to be determined. Whether they be bonds or notes, it is absolutely essential that the widest possible measure of distribution be realised. This will necessitate a campaign of the same character as that conducted in the past through the existing LAb erty Loan organisations. They have pledged again their united support in order that the Victory Liberty Loan bonds or notes may be distributed as widely as possible among the Ameri can people." This furnish.s the first ofaficial no tice of the date of the campaign, and disposes of the rumor that securities, would be disposed of among the banks Instead of being offered the general public. Workers Are Busy Reports received from chairmen nad other members of the Liberty Loan or ganizations all over the country and especially in the Sixth Federal Re serve D:strict, gives assurance that the faithful workers in former cam. paigns do not intend to quit until the job is finished. Organization is be ing perfected well in advance, aad plans laid for a brief and effective campaign. Four types of bonds are now be lug considenred by the Treasuary DOe partment, to suit varying tastes in in vestments. Their principal teatares are: One class of bonds at a low rats of interest, possibly four per cent, and exempt from all federal taxation; oe at a comparatively high rate; posaui bly five per cent, and subject to all federal taxes; a third bearing a mod erate rate of interest, perhaps 4%' per cent, and exempt from normal intacome taxi and a tourth class, exempt from taxation up to a certain amount. Victory is ours but the cost in dollars is yet to be met. Have you paid y our incoma ta?
