It grows clearer and clearer what su

anniversary of the discovery of Amer

fateful year a peculiar and thrilling
significance. We should make It a day
of anient rededication to the Ideals
upon which our government is founded
and by which our present heroic tasks
are inspired.
Now, therefore, I, Woodrow Wilson,
President of the United States of
America, do appoint Saturday, the 12th
day of October, 1018, as Liberty day.
On that day I request the citizens of
every community of the United States,
city, town and countryside, to cele
brate the discovery of our country In
order to stimulate a generous response
to the Fourth Liberty Loan. Commem
orative addresses, pageants, harvest
home festivals, or other demonstra
tions should be arranged for in every
neighborhood under the general direc
tion of the secretary of the treasury j
and the immediate direction of the
Liberty Loan committee, in co-opera
tion with the United States bureau of
education and the public school au
thorities. Let the people's response to
the Fourth Liberty Loan express the
measure of their devotion to the ideals
which have guided the country from
its discovery until now, and of their
determined purpose to defend them
and guarantee their triumph.
For the purpose of participating in
Liberty day celebrations all employees
of the federal government throughout

German Poster Reproduced by Bureau
of Publicity Proof of Shattered
Morale of Enemy.
A poster recently issued by the im
perial German government in an effort
to belittle the participation of America
in the war and thus strengthen the
morale of her people form the text of
one of the most striking pieces of litera- '
that the bureau of publicity of •
the war loan organization has prepared ;
for use in the forthcoming Fourth Lib
ertv loan.
The center of the poster is devoted
to a drawing showing New York city
on one side of the Atlantic and a tre

probably somewhere in France. Two
slnking vessels are shown in the lane
of travel between New York and
France. while in the offing are two
U-boats securely afloat. "Opportunity
for the German U-boats!" is the catch
' line for this section of the poster,
I The lane of travel in which the boats
! are sinking bears this inscription :
j "America—Europe. Distance 200 times
I greater than from England to France
mainland." In a corner of this sec
tion of the poster are shown the names
of Serbia. Montenegro. Italy. Itou
mania. Russia and Belgium. They are
lined up in the order named under an
orher exploding figure representative
of the Kuropdun war. and the names
of all the countries except Italy are
crossed out. indicating that they have
been eliminated from the struggle by
the Huns.
The title of the poster is "Can
America's Entry Make a decision of the
War?" Integral sections of it attempt
to convince the reader that America's
army cannot take the place of Rus
sia's withdrawn forces : that the Unit
ed States cannot build enough ships
to have any effect on the resu' t of the
war, and that the U-boats will destroy
virtually all the ships that America
build when those ships at

example of this is found in the figure

bears these words: "England went

Alongside this figure of a ship is a
drawing designed to show Uncle Sam
carrying the United States tonnage un

Uncle Sam reads: "Can America re

which Uncle Sam carries is printed
this inscription : "Three million gross
registry tons" and below that is an
other inscription which says: "At the
beginning of the war America had on
ly a tonnage of three million gross reg
istered tons." Commenting on these
statements, the poster further declares
"America t^nnot increase her gross
registered urns for 1618 by more than
two to two and a half million tons.
Dur U-boats sink twice as quickly as
England and America can build!"
The answer of the publicity bureau
to the two sections of the poster refer

the building of ships follows: "At the.
