THREE SONS ON
THE TUSCANIA San Francisco Woman Gave Country Three SoWiers--One Lost With Torpedoed Transport. TWO SONS~SENT TO FRENCH FRONT Mrs. Louise Moore of 139 First ave nue, San Francisoo, knows the mean ing of war. In the front window of her home a service flag shows three starß. Three of her sons answered the call to colors. And when the Tuscania was torpe doed, with the loss of more than one hundred American lives, her eldest son, Wiltlam Moore, made the great sacrifice for his country. On the rocky coast of Ireland he lies buried in the grave which enfolds others of his com rades in arms. The other two sons of Mrs. Moore, who were also on the Tuscania, are listed among those saved. The joy over their safety has been tempered only by the grief which followed the word of William's passing. “I told those boys I was sorry that there was occasion to go to war,” said Mrs. Moore, smiling through the an guish that was her portion in the days following the Tuscania disaster. “But I told them also,” she added with a triumphant smile, “that if our country was worth living in and enjoying w'hen things were going along smoothly, it was certainly worth fighting for when It, was in trouble.” That is the spirit of American motherhood In these days of trial and sacrifice. “Our country has not asked much of its young people* in the way of sacrifice,” said Mrs. Moore. “Things have been fairly easy for most of the boys and girls of this generation. Now 1t is their time to show how they have appreciated all that has been given to them." Mrs. Moore has two other sons, one of draft ago, and the other old enough to enlist but not old enough to be drafted. “Now they’re crazy to go,” said the brave little mother whose service flag already has one haloed star. “Do you know the last thing the three boys did before they left?” she asked with motherly pride. “They all bought Liberty Bonds, and said they would leave the rest of that work to ns. Now we know what we can do.” Private William Moore and his brothers have left a message for the stay-at-homes in America to heed. “The rest of you buy Liberty Bonds— that can be your work.” Have you planned to buy your next one, now that the Third Liberty Loan Is called for? Where the Allied Loans Go More people than you would believe are under the impression that the money which Uncle Sam is lending to the Allies leaves America for ex penditure in Europe and other for eign countries. This is a mistaken idea. Virtually all of it is expended right here at home for American produced goods, munitions, and food stuffs. Since the declaration o-f war against Germany on April 6, 1917, Congress has authorized the lending of $7,000,- 000,000 to the Allies, to be paid over before July 1, 1918. Up to November 1, the Allies had received advances aggregating $3,691,400,000. They had expended in America for supplies $2,758,900,000, and had remaining to their credit in the United States treasury a balance of $932,500,000. From April to November the Allies had been borrowing from Uncle Sam at the rate of approximately $500,000,- 000 a month. And they had been spending it with us almost as rapidly as they got it! So the money which you put into Liberty Bonds in the two preceding campaigns has been trickling back through channels of commerce in an uninterrupted stream. What the Al lies are not spending is being scab tered by Uncle Sam, who is con fronted with the task of supplying and caring for a developing army of nearly 2,000,000 men. And so it will continue as long as the war lasts. The men afield must be supplied with munitions, clothing and food. Every line of American endeavor will profit. The larger the bond sales, the greater the growth of the Allied armies and their require ments; the more tremendous the ex penditures. Every dollar you put into Liberty Bonds is an added stimulus to Amer ican industry and American pros perity. Besides making more and more certain the defeat of the Kaiser's ambition to rule the world with his mailed fist. “We seek no ‘place in the sun' ex cept the sun of Liberty."—Otto H. Kahn, Jan. 13, 1918. Every Liberty Bond brings another ray of freedom. Bought yours? “Civilians, YOUR firing line is where you buy your war bonds.”—Lloyd George, Jan. 1, 1918. Have you fired your dollars at the Kaiser? Buy Life erty Bonds. THE BALANCE nF POWER, OVER THE TOP SHALL WE SEE IT THROUGH OR QUIT? The Government is finding it nec essary to call upon us three times within a year to provide by subscrip tions to Liberty Loans, sums of money hitherto considered of fabulous pro portions. These facts should im press upon us as no mere words could do, the intense seriousness, the stern necessities, of the situation. Continued acquaintance with the more serious aspects of life is apt to breed indifference, and to distort our mental vision. As the soldier shud ders with horror at his first sight of carnage, but later becomes hard ened, so are we apt to become com placent under conditions which call actually for increasingly strenuous effort. The Liberty Loan with its original accompaniments of novelty and noise appealed to our national love of a new sensation. In the Third Cam paign much of the novelty will be lacking, but the serious purpose be hind the campaign will have grown. Our money was needed when both the First and Second Liberty Loans were floated, but it will he more than ever needed when the Third Loan is called for. Our army has grown, our national pay-roll has grown, the needs of our allies have grown, the necessity of forever banishing the un speakable menace of Prussianlsm has grown. No longer can we hope that the entrance of this country into the struggle will Induce an early peace. More arrogant, more desperate than even the German Government puts forward its impossible claims upon the rights and life of humanity. Our Governnyerit in its growing need is calling upon us to give up our luxuries, is conscripting the lives of our sons, is controlling trade, labor, and prices, with an ever increasing earnestness and firmness of pur pose. The test of our personal strength of character and determination is at hand. Your Government pleads with you very earnestly to preach and practice both before and during the next Liberty Loan Campaign a stead fastness of purpose, an unselfish pa triotism, which shall reflect the spirit of a man who having set his hand to the execution of a necessary task would rather lcae that hand than draw it back. This is the spirit of our President, of our allies—it is surely our own. “This is a war of peoples—the peo ple behind the fronts."—Major Grayson M. P. Murphy of the American Red Cross, Jan. 20, 1918. YOU are a part of Democracy’s Battalions. Buy Lib erty Bonds. KAISER - AC/1 VOX PIKERS* THRIFT AND CONSERVATION Last year at this time the great cry was conservation. This year it is thrift. Last year the nation was urged by the Government to conserve the natural resources and the products of the farms and fields and factories Greater crops were urged, and canning clubs and city gardens were the order of the day. This year the nation is being taught the lesson of spending its money wisely. The nation is being shown the importance of putting every cent where it will do the most good. Conservation and thrift go hand in hand. The fact that the farmer is being told this year to be thrifty does not mean he is not to plant every acre available and till his crops care fully and harvest them when they are ready for the reaper. It means that he must invest wisely the money he gets for the splendid crops he has iemonstrated he is able to raise. The farmer, as a rule, can find some thing for which to spend almost every dollar he gets. There always is ma chinery to be bought or repaired, notes to be met, fertilizer to be pur chased, harness, lubricating oil and groceries and clothing to be paid for in the neighboring town. But in the last few years most of the thrifty farmers have been so well paid for their produce that they are now T “on their feet,” or more nearly so than ever before. This country has been good to them, for they have lived in peace and have been provided by the Federal Loan Bureau with cheap money with which to pursue the arts of peace. Any economies they can practice at this time will give them additional • money with which to lend financial aid to the Government in its great war for right eousness and fair dealing. Every dollar loaned to the Govern ment is a practical protest against the plans of a greenly, unscrupulous, soul less power intent on world conquest, and every dollar thus adw»eed serves to shorten the period of war and bring nearer the day of universal and enduring peace. » “Who will dare to weaken our West ern front by a single troop or a single gun?”—George Clemenceau, Premier of France, Dec. 25, 1915.
