I pledge allegiance to
MY FLA(j and lo ihe
Republic Tur which ii
siands, one nation in
divisible with Liberty
and Justice for all.
THE NATION'S SUPREME TASK
The nation's one job is to make
war with every ounce of material
—moral, physical and financial
strength. Nothing else counts
War, war, vigorous, aggressive,
all-powerful war, is our one su
preme work. To that end the full
est measure of the nanon's life
must be given and upon it the ut
most potentialities of our resources
be concentrated. Banish every
thing else but the things which
arm us with the power to strike
for life and liberty.
COMPARATIVE SUQAR PRICES
Dunng the first year of the war,
the United States consumed more
than four million tons of sugar.
The wholesale price of refined
sugar in this country at the present
time is $7..50 per hundred pounds
as compared with $9.15 last Au-
gu.si. The regulated ivholesale
price of sugar in various countries
makes an interesting comparison:
Per hundred pounds.
United Kingdom, $12.59
United Slates, 7.30
An increase of one cent per
pound in the price of sugar in ihe
United States would take at least
$82,185,820 out of the pockets of
American consumers in one year.
This means crowd every coal
mine to the utmost of its capacity,
run every furnace and steel plant
as ihouuh the nation's life depend
ed on it, which it does; build every
ship, big and small, steel and wood,
for which men and materials can
be found, and count not the cost;
run every cotton mill to its limit.
Produce every bale of cotton,
every bushel of grain that can be
grown, raise livestock and poultry,
and keep on raising them, for our
allies are hungry, and soon will
starve if we cannot supply them
bread and meat.
Make guns, the biggest and the
best; produce explosives without
limit; crowd all the potentialities of
chemistry to the last notch of hu
man energy; expand railroads;
build permanent highways; make
money with all possible energy,
and turn it into Liberty Bonds and
Red Cross or kindred intersts.
MAV THERE BE NONB.
President Wilson, in his state
ment calling upon every man, wo
man, and child to pledge them
selves to save constantly and to
buy regularly the securities of the
Government, says, "May there be
As the President points out,
"This war is one of nations—not
of armies—and all of our 100,-
000,000 people must be economi
cally and industrially adjusted to
war conditions if this nation is to
play its Full pan in the conflict.”
Our Nation, not our Army and
Navy only, is at war. And that
means that all of us not actually
fighting must do our pan.
That part consists in giving the
Army and the Navy all the support
of which we are capable. To do
that each one of us must first of all
be a producer to our maximum
ability and a consumer of necessi-
lies only, for every bit of man
power and every panicle of mate
rial is necessary for the use of the
Army and Navy and for the ma
king oF the things essential to our
As a maximum producer and as
g consumer of necessities only,
each one oF us will be an accumu
lator oF savings. And these savings
can be invested in War Savings
Stamps with benefit both lo the
Government and ourselves.

But the war profits and incomes
upon which the increased taxes
will be levied will be the profits and
incomes of the calendar year 1918.
It would be manifestly unfair to
wait until the early months of 1919
to say what they are to be. It
might be difficult. I should imag
ine, to run the mill with water that
had already gone over the wheel.
Moreover, taxes of that sort will
not be paid until June of next year,
and the Treasury must anticipate
them—From President Wilson's
