BANKS TO AID ANY
BUY LIBERTY BOND
State Institution Would Loan
$50 to Persons of Limited
Means Who Wish to Aid
Big War Fund.
The Sute Hank of Omaha wi
loan money to all who want to buy
liberty loan bonds and have not the
$50 in cas'i. The institution will let
patriotic borrowers pay the money
back in almost any kind of Install
President A. L. Schantz said the
hank stands ready to accommodate
anyone who wants a bond.
"The lowest denomination in which
these bonds, will come will be $50, ac
cording to the reports," he said. "That
seems to me to be low enough to al
low most people to get in and help,
However, if it is not, and if there are
people who want to buy a bond and
have not the $50 ready, we will loan
them the money and take their note
for it. We will give them easy pay
"It is going to be a long, hard pull
to raisa all this money, and before we
are througn with it we'll all have to
get into th game. Every man will
have to own some of these bonds
eventually wait and sec.
The State Bank of Omaha was the
first financial institution in Omaha to
subscribe r0 the liberty war loan.
Fitty the Minimum.
Omaha r.ankcrs in general are en
tin ly in favor of the system under
winch the liberty loan is to De worKed
cut. They declare that reducing rhe
minimum bond down to $50 is a
stroke that will make the bonds nonti
lar and place them within the reach
of almost everyone.
Vice President Folda of the Com
Exchange National bank said:
"The $50 minimum seems to be low
enough. It will take a lot of bonds at
(hat figure to make up the money re
quired for the big loan. Of course
(he financiers in the east will take
large amounts which will swell the
ium rapidly I feel sure that the $50
bonds will he nought up rapidly here
as elsewhere when they begin to be
Asked if hqnds of smaller denomi
nations would not be more popular
with the country banks, Mr. Folda
"Now you are talking about the
banks out where the fanners are, and
those are the fellows who have the
money. Tney will take bonds in $50
denominations and higher, and will
take them very readily. There is no
reed of reducing them to any lower
denomination for those people.
Will Find Ready Sale.
President F. H. Davis of the First
National hank said he feels sure $50
bonds will fell readily. He said the
$50 denomination brought them wiih
in reach of everyone.
"The authorities at Washington
canvassed the situation thoroughly."
he said, "and I believe they have
acted very wisely."
The bonds will not be actually Is
sued before the first part of July,
bankers said. When they are avail
able, however, the local bankers will
sell them over the counter, and many
of the banks are already advertising
that they take subscriptions for the
liberty war loan. Meantime the banks
have subscribed to the loan and have
received certificates bearing 3'A per
cent. Thej? certificates may be con
verted into bonds in July, or may be
cashed at the option of the local
