TVT FA TED Tf Tt 4 a N i I I s P The question of Patriotism has been raised by cer tain advocates of prohibition. WHEREIN is it unpatriotic for the opponents of prohibition to assert their freedom and the right of seifdetermi nation or to oppose the substitution of statecontrolfor self-control, which is and ev er has been the foundation of character? On the other hand, WHEREIN is it patriotic to delay and block essential war measures by attaching prohibition riders and amendments? Many thousands of the sons of retail liquor dealers and allied tradesmen in Missouri are fighting under the American flag. Is it patriotic, or even honest, to destroy the livelihood and property of the fa thers and mothers of these soldiers who are fighting for your honor and the security of your property? The Government has levied heavy taxes on the stocks of retail dealers and still heavier taxes are pending. Is it patriotic to advocate the destruc tion of the goods on which these dealers have paid and must pay taxes? The stock of nine St. Louis breweries is owned by British investors. Is it-patriotic to destroy, with out compensation, the property of citizens of an allied nation? The other breweries of St. Louis are owned by American citizens who have gladly met every test of loyalty and patriotism, from buying war sav ing stamps to subscribing millions for liberty bonds and giving money and personal service freely to the Red Gross and other war activities.

V Conservation, the keynote of the Ad ministration In all things aside from tne central idea of wlnnie the war. is now to be invoked in the raiaine of lunas for the relief ana welfare of America's hosts who are battline for me rreedom.of the world. Acting on the direct reauest from resident Wilson, all of the auxiliaries or our fighting force, save the Red Cross, have been united for one in tensive campaign to raise a fund for the welfare ot the American heroes who have left their homes and so eal lauuy anu successfully are fighting our oauies in desolated France and Belgium, that our land of America shall be forever free from an invasion ironi the unspeakable Hun. inv . ims campaign, which will bein Nov. 11 and continue until Nov. 18, was deferred until the Fourth Libert v T . . Axjan was nmsnea. Because of the repeated calls that would have been made had not these war activities been combined into one central organ ization, and to avoid duplication of work and to make every cent apply to the purpose for which it is con tributed, President Wilson outlined the plan adopted. There will be no otner call on the generosity of the people unless it be an appeal from the Red Cross, the only organization devoting itself to war relief activities not embraced iu the appreaching campaign. The organization which it is now the privilege of the citizens of Mis souri to contribute are: The Yuanj Men's Christian Association, the Young Women's Christian Associa tion, the Knights of Columbus, the Jewish Welfare Board, the War Camp Commuity Service, the Salva tion Army, and the American Library Association. Thus it will be seen that the loyal Protestant. Catholic, and Jew can Join hands In a move ment from which creed and denoini oationalism have -been entirely elimi nated. The fund that the Nation will giv ts $170,500,000. Missouri will giv. S5.000.000 of this. This fund will be divided equitably among the seve." war activity organizations, under C!ov erniuent supervision, and every dollai and every penny will be expended fo: the relief of Our Boys, thousands whom are stricken and helpless "ove: there."

A., or other volunteer worker and borne to the hospital where other self-effacing volunteer workers art ministering to him day and night, that his life may be saved that he will come back safely to you wlien victory is finally won and right and justice is again triumphant. The purchase of bonas was a busi ness transaction. Now you have the privilege of giving, and the loyal and patriotic citizen will consider it a privilege. . The boy on the sea, in the air, or In the trenches, is facing the foe not for the paltry $30 per month he receives, but because he is a patriot. He in fighting your battles, is offering his body to be wounded and maimed, is risking his life itself every dey, that America shan ever be free. He is giving his all.
