Do we look at the papers and see
what the boys are doing over in
France and feel that the war is just
about over, and .say to ourselves, we
do not need to subscribe for the
bonds? This looks cowardly in the
extreme, while the boys arc going

and shrapnel, cutting great gaps in

with our dollars, this Fourth Lib
erty Loan should go over the top.
with all the impetus that the boys
go over the top 'Over There.' Every
body should get to this, take another
bond besides the amount you have
been asked to take, and take the
amount which has been allotted you
and do it at once.
Say, do you know that every one
working in this matter as a com
mitteeman, to collect, and to allot
this matter is as much an otlicer of
the United States treasury as is the
one for the county that by your
votes you have elected as county
Know this also, you have been
placed in a deferred classification,
that should you now come across as
per your allotment, and if you have
no allotment, if you do not take a
bond, you will be returned to class
one. You are to fight, work or fur
nish the money to back the boys
over there. Again, where citizen
ship papers have been granted, and
the allotment placed against you has
not been subscribed, your citizen
ship papers will be cancelled.
