Eighteen days later by a practically unanimous vote Con gress passed the Liberty Loan Bond bill. On May 2 the First Liberty Loan was announced, on May 14 the de tails were made public, and on the 15 th the campaign began and closed one month later. The issue was for $2,000,000,000, the bonds bearing 3 per cent interest and running for 15-30 year3. The bonds carried the conversion privilege, entitling the holder, if he chose, to convert them into bonds of a later issue bear ing a higher rate of interest. Four and a half million subscribers from every section of the country, repre senting every condition, race, and class of citizens, subscribed for more than $3,000,000,000 of the bonds. Only $2,000,000,000 waa allotted. The outstanding features of the First Liberty Loan were the prompt ness with which it was arranged and conducted, tho patrioticm of the newspapors, banks, corporations, or ganizationo, and people generally in working for its fsucces3, and the heavy oversubscription of more than 50 per cent. Another notable feature was that there was no interruption to the bu3incs3 of the country oc casioned by the unprecedented de mand upon its money resources. The Second Liberty Loan cam paign opened on October 1, 1917, and closed on October 27. The bonds of this issue bear 4 per cent inter est and run for 10-25 years. They carry the conversion privilege. It was announced that 50 per cent of the oversubscription would be taken. Nine million subscribers subscribed to $4,617,532,000 of the bonds, an oversubscription of 54 per cent. Only $3,808,766,150 of the bonds was al lotted. , This campaign was marked with the same enthusiastic support of the public as it predecessor. The labor ad fraternal organizations were es pecially active in this campaign, and the women of the country did effi cient organized work which greatly contributed to the succcs3 of the loan. Tho men in tho Army and Navy worked for and subscribed largely to the loan. The Third Liberty Loan campaign opened on April 6, 1918, one year ex actly after our entrance into the war, 486. This is one of the smartest suits forsemi dresswearconiing from the designers. The ma terial is a wool velour, beautifully rich. Both front and backare pan eled, showing the new est style developments. The collar is cut on ex tra fetchinglinesnnd is convertible. A distinc tive belt completes this attractive costume. and closed on May 4. The bonds of this issue bear 4 per cent Interest, and run for 10 years, aro not subject to redemption prior to maturity, and carry no conversion privilege. The loan was announced for $3,000,000, 000, but the right was reserved to accept the additional subscriptions. Seventeen million subscribers sub scribed for $4,170,019,650 of the bonds, all of which was allotted. A great feature of this loan was its very wide distribution among the people and thruout the Union and the fact that the country districts promptly and heavily subscribed to the loan, in a great measure making up their quotas carlior than the cities. Secretary McAdoo pronounced" this loan the soundest of national fi nancing. A little over a year ago there was some 300,000 United States bond holders; there are now somewhere between 20,000,000 and 25,000,000. Awakened patriotism has made the American people a saving people, a bond-buying people. Tho effect of the Liberty Loans on the national Character, on our national life, on the individual citizen and our home, life is immeasurable of incalculable' benefit. Not less incalculable ia their effect on tho dc3tiny of the world as our ships plow the sca3 and our men and material in Europe beat back the Hun. The Fourth Liberty Loan cam paign will begin Saturday, Septem ber 28, and close October 19. No American doubts its success; no good American will fail to contribute to its success. The blood cf our men fallen in Europe calls to us; our answer must bo and will be worthy of them and our country.
