Closing Drivs (or Liberty Bonds.
Secretary McAdoo furnishes figures regarding
subscriptions for the Liberty loan that tell a story
of American indifference and apathy. The loan
is not over-subscribed, and unless great efforts
are made, it will not be fully taken by Friday. In
this great district into which wealth has poured
in an overwhelming stream for the last few years,
less than one-third of the alloted amount has been
asked for by purchasers. This can only be as
cribed to over-confidence on part of the men who
ought to be the most interested.
This loan is vital to all. It is bonds or bond
age, and cannot be read into anything else. This
message has been carried to all, and none can
plead misunderstanding. The man who thinks the
United States can now evade the issue is not only
cheating himself, but all his generation so far as
The popular feature of the appeal has had full
effect, and the poorer people have done their
share. It is the men of means who are holding
back. The supreme test of the loyalty of wealth
is at hand. America is in a war where stupend
ous sums of money will be required. The man-
hood of the country already is under requisition,
and unless money volunteers for the service, it;
too, will be drafted.
The closing drive for the sale of the Liberty
bonds will provide a test as to what must be done
to provide money with which to carry on the war.

Washington, June 9. This war has brought
lorth convincing and even spectacular evidence
that among the aliens who live in the United
States there is a surprisingly large amount of the
kind of patriotism that leads a man to offer his
life for his country. And back of these ('mon
strations of loyalty lies the large fact that
naturalization in mis country is proceeding aoout
three times more rapidly than it ever did before;
while immigration is almost nil, and will probably
remain so for some years after the war. Mean
time, citizenshio schools have been established in
1,700 communities and the Department of Labor
is getting ready to publish a free text book for
the use of aliens who want to learn to speak
English and become citizens.
In the last year, the number of declarations
made monthly has increased from 19,451 (average
for three months of 1916) to 59,011 (average for
tnree months of this year), there are some 12,
000,000 aliens in the United States, and Raymond
F. Crist, deputy commissioner of naturalization,
estimates tnat these will soon be making them
seives citizens at tne rate ot a million a year.
Incidentally, they will be learning to read, find
ing out about the resources and opportunities of
mis country, getting out ol their foreign quarters
and sections, weaving themselves into the fabric
ot tne nation s social and industrial life.
This sudden boom in the naturalization busi
ness only started last February. In January there
were 14,151 declarations of the intention to be
come citizens, and in February there were 43.-
58J. The rate took a new impulse from the dec
laration of war, and has steadily increased. Of
course, there is a good deal of compulsion back
ot tne movement, some employers are threaten
ing their alien employes with discharge unless
they become citizens. Others are paying them
half time in some cases full time for attending
the classes in citizenship. Others are motivated
by the consideration that aliens may not live
within half a mile of arsenals, and various other
government works. Then. too. the situation of
an enemy alien is unpleasant wherever he lives.
But more potent than any of these seems to
be the desire of the intelligent alien to demon
strate hia loyalty to his adopted country to
identify himself with its interests. The natural-
born American is nearly always croud to call
himself patriotic. But the chances are that no
man knows better what Patria means that the
poor peasant who leaves the land where he was
born a land which holds him by a thousand
bonds and goes out to seek a land of greater op
portunity, ft is no visit or excursion. He sinks
his all and knows he is going never to return.
For years he struggles along in poverty, unable
even to learn the language of the great new
country. For yeara he is literally a man without
a country. Whatever fatherland may mean to a
man he learns by the bitter experience of having

born citizen. For him war is the chance to prove
Mr. Crist, who has helned thousands of aliens
to become citizens, firmly believes that to the
more intelligent of the foreign born the irleala of
citizenship and patriotism are real and vivid emo
tions. He cites as proof a city election in Pitts

or not the foreitrn born voted. It was found thai

a deciding factor in the election. Seven promi

Mr. Crist has taken occasion to catechise
