BOYSJAND GIRLS Well Repaid All Fxpense of Organization. iplaining cause war time" means coal shortage; less sugar in your coffee; bad business; less money than you think you ought to make? What about the boys who are fighting for you in France? For you—a little economy and deprivation. For them the trenches; the pitiless storms of rain and sleet; the ceaseless deafening bombardment of the guns; hunger, cold and fever; wounds and death. That you may dwell in peace, plenty, and security, they sacrifice everything, give everything, brave everything, and face a nameless grave with a smile and a song. What are you doing, or giving, or sacrificing for them? WBtkmm. The Third Liberty Loan is your opportunity to prove the patriotism that is in your heart and on your lips. Your opportunity to show yourself -worthy of the heroism, the devotion, the self-renunciation cf your soldiers and sailors. Your opportunity to share,insome small degree, the sufferings of tbose who stand ready to make the supreme sacrifice for you. All you can do is little enough. You simply lend your money. Do it, and be glad that you can do ao much find sorry you can do no more.
