THE BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1918.
STATE READY FOR
T. C. Byrne Announces Drive
Will Start Soon; Interest
Rate Probably Will Be
4 1-2 Per Cent.
Organization throughout the state
for the sale of the third Liberty loan
bonds is practically completed.
"It is apparent now that the cam
paign will start soon," announces T.
C. Byrne, state chairman. "There is
no exact information yet as to the
date, or what the size of the offering
will be, but we feel sure the amount
to be sold is between $6,000,000000
and $9,000,000,000. Recent offerings
of treasury certificates would indicate
that the rate will be Al2 per cent."
"Nebraska is ready to do its part
again," said O. T. Eastman, manager
of the Omaha branch of the Federal
Reserve bank. "No matter how big
Nebraska's quota is, the experience
of the state committee indicates that
it will be taken. The very real se
rious problem, in the interest of the
commerce of the country, is to have
the subscription well distributed
among the people."
, E. F. Folda, secretary of the state
committee, said: "It is absolutely es
sential that the bonds be generally
distributed. The banks have proven
that they are behind the government
to the limit, but banking assets must
be held liquid so that the banker in
every community can take care of the
business of his depositors and bor
rowers, because it will be necessary
to create a credit that you can loan to
your government. There is not
enough cash on hand or available
funds to absorb the entire loan."

A platoon of volunteer hustlers of
the Chamber of Commerce marched

Creston, la., for the summer. cam
paign. Recruiting officers will be sent out
from the Omaha office to the smaller
towns where recruiting stations are
. not maintained, in an effort to obtain
more enlistments. An endeavor will
be made to enlist 800 men from the
Omaha district this month.
