"This talk about French girls be

Lieutenant Lawler made the trip
over in one of the largest boats In the

overslept, and frequent guard duty,
the trip could not have been ex
celled, even in peace time.
They ran into some rough weather
going over, he said, and most of the
boys were sick.
"We now are quartered In an old
fashioned town "somewhere In
France," his letter states. "The peo
ple are very friendly and show their
appreciation of our men.
"The interiors of their houses are
as clean as whistles, but when we
first came up the streets were ter
rible. We gave the town a regular
I clean-up, but the people did not like
It—sort of figured we were infring
ing on their ancient rights.
"There is a little stream about half
a mile away where we go swimming,
has a waterfall, one of the most
beautiful I ever have seen. The wa

Governor Burnquist Issues Proclama
tion in Reference Thereto.
A proclamation has been issued by
Governor J. A. A. Burnquist, which
declares it to be the duty of every
citizen in tho state to stand behind
the Fourth Liberty Loan to the finish.
It says it is the solemn obligation of
the state to heavily over-subscribe the
Minnesota allotment.
The proclamation follows:
On September 28th will be begun
another intensive campaign for Lib
erty Loan subscriptions. In most sec
tions of the country the campaign will
extend to October 19th, but in our dis
trict tho plans contemplate October
3rd as the closing date. It is desir
able that the opening day for solicita
tion of subscriptions to the Fourth
Liberty Loan be an occasion 'of much
enthusiasm and interest. The amount
of Minnesota's-allotment for this cam
paign is somewhat larger than that for
the Third Loan. The portion assigned
us, however, should bo easily raised
for Minnesota crops have this year
been bountiful, and will tend to in
crease the prosperity of all our peo
ple. A most critical time in the prog
ress of the war has been reached. A
quick and generous response to the
solicitation: of bonds will add new
courage to our fighters, strengthen the
morals of ourselves and our allies and
give another severe blow to the cen
tral powers.
In order to promote this Fourth
Liberty Loan campaign within our own
state, I, Joseph A. A. Burnquist, Gov
ernor of Minnesota, do hereby pro
claim September 28th as Liberty Loan
Subscription Day, and request our
citizens to make as many of their sub
scriptions as possible on said day,
willingly co-operating with the solici
tors and suspending business to such
an extent as is necessary to securo
the result desired.
In Witness Whereof, I have caused
the great seal of the State of Minne
sota to be affixed and have hereunto
set my hand at the Capitol iir tho City
of St. Paul, this 13th day of Septem
ber, 1918.
