Does Such an
American Exist
Can there be any Ameri
can who is not doing all he
can to help win the war
Who pretends to believe
that we could have kept
out
Who whines or growls about the
little sacrifice he is asked to make
Who gets panicstricken and
thinks that it would be better to
compromise with the Hun and
listens to the serpent whisperings
of German propaganda
If such an American exists let
him realize what Germany has
done to Russia which gave in and
negotiated a cowardly peace
There is only one thing for us
all today and that is war to the
bitter endwar until the Hun is
utterly and completely destroyed
For those who cannot fight
LIBERTY BONDS are the best
possible weapons against the
Hun

Officer
Honorable Carl Hayden mem
ber of concrress has been hon

ago for this commission and was
successful in securing it only a

Hon Geo Babbitt
Chairman Democratic State
Central Committee
Phoenix Arizona
I regret intensely the unfair
and talse accusations that are
being made in the press and else
where against the patriotic rec
ord of Hon Carl Hayden This
wilful misrepresentation of his
record votes in congress is in
famous His specific answer to
every charge made by the Na
tional Security League of New
York will I trust be circulated
among the people of Arizona
and visit on this campaign of
misrepresentation the rebuke
that its gross slanders so richly
deserve
Hayden Has supported the
president in this war with fideli
ty and force This is no time to
elect a republican from Arizona
when democratic supremacy in
the House of Representatives is
seriously challenged especially
when a faithful and true repre
sentative must be sscrificed on
the altar of falsehood and deceit

I have known Carl Hayden in
timately during his six yearsk
service in congressr have served
on same committees with him
have lived in same hotels with
him He has honored Arizona
as Arizona has honored him
During this entire service Hay
den has been true to his presi
dent true to his State true to
his country true to his flag true
to the boys at the front He has
stood every test he has upheld
the hands of the President every
day President Wilson not only
desires but deserves the re-election
ef Hayden who will stand
by him who will sustain him
during the critical period after
the close of the worlds greatest
war

Hon Geo Babbitt

Considering the immense bur
dens and enormous responsibili
ties resting upon the shoulders
of President Wilson a patriotic
citizenship should be willing that
the president should have mem
bers of congress in harmony and
sympathy with his views Rep
resentative Carl Hayden has been
a constant vigilant intelligent
and remarkably effective sup
porter of President Wilsons poli
cies Hayden has never flinched
or failed in any duty The next
House of Representatives may
have to do with the great task of
reconstruction and Haydens ex
perience is of immense value
not only to Arizona but to the
entire nation as well
Experience is all important
here in Washington Hayden
has membership on three of the
most important committees of
the House These valuable com
mittee assignments have placed
him in a stragetic position where
he is able to and does render ex
tremely valuable service to our
great Southwest Hayden has
superb moral courage is an able
resourceful industrious man and
no State has a more valuable
representative

Have Reached Their
Allotments
TOTAL SUBSCRIBED 146350
Drive Still On and Every Com
munity Is Urged To Go
Over the Top
Graliam county has not yet
reached itsquota of 15280000
Up to this morning 14670000
had been reported to Liberty
Loan Headquarters in Safford
It is hoped that by the close of
the drive on Saturday evening
the county will be entirely over
the top
We have partial reports from
every precinct in the county ex
cept Stanley and we have been
assured that the quota there will
be raised At least nine pre
cincts in the county hae reached
their allotment and of the five
that have not yet reported over
the top we feelkquite sure that
two and perhaps three will
make their quota It may be
that there will be two of the
precincts that will not quite
reach it though they are making
a strenuous effort Everyone in
terested in the drive throughout
the county is interested ip see
ing that the county as a whole
reaches its quota and it Is the
aim that those precincts which
reach their quota will have
enough over in order to make up
for any shortage that the other
precincts may have
