Proclamation Bylhe President of the United Mates: This war is one of nations, not of armies, and all of our one hundred million people must be eeonomically and indus trially adjusted to war conditions if this nation itt to play its full part in the conflict. The problem before us is not pri marily a financial problem but rather a problem of inereased produetion of war essentialls and the saving of the materials and the labor necessary for the support and equipment of our army and navy. Thoughtless expenditure of money for non essentials uses up the labor of men, the products of the farms, mines and faetories, and overburdens transportation, all of whielt must be used to the utmost and at their best for war purposes, The great results which we seek can he 9btaitted only by the plirticipation of every member of the nation, young and old, in a national eoneerted thrift movement. 1 therefore uroze that our people everywhere pledge .themselves, es sug gested by the Seeretary of the Treasury, to the practice of thrift, to serve the Government to their utmost in increasing production in all fields necessary to the winning of the war, to eouserve food and fuel and useful materials of every kind, to devote their labor only to the most neeessary tasks, and to buy only those things which are esaential to individual health and efficiency, and that the people, as evidenee of their loy alty, invest all that they can save in Liberty Bonds and War Savings Stamps. The securities issued by the Treasury De partment are so many of them within the reaelt of every one that the door of opportunity in this matter is wide open to all of us. To praetiee thrift in peace times itt a virtue and brings great benefit to the individual at all timem; with the desperate need of the civilized world today for materiala and labor with which to end the war, the practiee of individual thrift is a patriotic duty and a neeessity, I appeal to all who now own either Liberty Bonds or War Savings Stamps to eontinue to practiee eeonotny and thrift, and to appeal to all who do not own government securities to do likewise, and purchase them to the extent of their nietillS. The man who buys government seenrities transfers the pur chasing power of itis nioney to the United Slates Government after this war, and to that Millie degree does not buy eompetition with the Government. I earnestly appeal to every man, woman and child to Pledge theinselvea on or before the ',Nth of June to save con stantly and to buy as regularly as possibly the seettrities of the government, and to do tills am far 98 possible through membership in War Savings Societies. The 2,Sth of June ends this speeial period of enlistment in the great volunteer army of produetion and saving here at hotne. May there be none unenliated on that day. (Signed) WOODROW WILSON ,..
