The Victory Liberty Loan
The United States Government, thru
its representative officer, Mr. Carter A.
Glass, Secretary of the Treasury, is
appealing to us once more to uphold the
arms of the Government, and help main
tain the enviable position in which our
country stands today—a nation composed
of loyal people.
In this offering of the Victory Liberty
Loan, the Government gives the people
an opportunity the equal of which no
other Government has given its citizens.
To rich and poor, the value of the
Victory Loan is large, and no one can
afford to miss this opportunity.
Already we have news of the fact that
many cities and counties have over
subscribed their quotas, and in some in
stances the oversubscription occurred in
the first half-hour of the campaign.
When this Bulletin reaches the people
of Badin, there is little doubt that the
total asked for by the Government will
already be in sight.
It is my earnest hope and desire that
the good people of Badin will meet this
obligation as they met the several pre
vious ones; and I feel certain that this
will be the case.
It is our duty to answer the call of
the heroic Colonel McRae, who gave his
life for his country, and who has im
mortalized his name in the simple but
beautiful lines entitled, “In Flanders
Fields,” wherein he called to his support
ing comrades to take up the banner
which had fallen from their lifeless
hands, so that those who rest ’neath the
poppies in Flanders Fields might sleep
with that peace which comes only to
those who know that their sacrifices
have not been in vain.
In earthly form, this Colonel and his
brave men will never know that their
banner was raised by noble and self-
sacrificing men and carried thru to
victory, and raised on the highest hilltops
of the enemies’ soil as a warning to them
that this great Government of the United
States will not stand for the doctrine
that “Micht Makes Richt.” which would
mean the downfall of civilization.
In the great preparation which our
Government made to defeat the foe with
the least sacrifice of life consistent with
honor, it has obligated itself to the world
on a monetary scale unheard of in pre
During the trying ordeal thru which
England, France, and Italy held the
battle line, we guaranteed them in ad
dition to our moral and physical support
the necessary credit to assist them to
carry out their aims. In fact our
Government has already spent, or obli
gated itself to spend $4,500,000,000.00,
which it now calls on us, as its partners,
to help make good.
It is little enough for us to answer
this call with the same feeling as the
noble men who answered Colonel McRae’s
call on Flanders Fields, and show our
Government and the world by an over
subscription to the Victory Loan that we
"have the same earnest purpose to see
this Loan thru as the noble troops had
who took up the banners on the battle-
' fields and carried them thru to a suc

$40,000.00 as its quota. This amount is
less than half our subscription to the
Fourth Liberty Loan, of which we were
asked to subscribe $75,000.00. Badin
answered that appeal with a subscription
of $93,000.00. Let us band together and
do the same with the Victory Loan.
Remember that many of our nobU
boys have returned, and that others will
be coming home shortly. Let us also
remember that this is our last oppof'
tunity to do our best for our Govern
ment; as Secretary of the Treasury
Glass informs us there will be no further
loans of this nature floated.
The banks of the country are offering
us the same facilities to take up this
issue as they did on the former ones.
