Last Call for the Fourth Liberty
S I II ,.c f
To all Liberty Loan Committees :'
At the time tjiis is written, the
American Arm v in France is liv
ing a good account of itself, and
the results which they are obtain
ing are due in no small measure
to the patriotic response of : the
people of this country in sub
scribing to the Third Liberty
Loan'; but that loan was not anf.
ficient, and now the Government
calls on us tor another loan and
we have a personal resDonsihilitv
to carry ' bonds, just as our- sol
diers ha ve a personal responsibili
ty j.o carry their guns. -What
would you think of a soldier who
Ilaid down his; gun in this terrible
crisis' ; The Liberty Loan Com
mittee in your community needs
your full support. - '
