the fact that work makes wealth. We
talk of the natural resources of our
land and they are indeed wonderful

The War will be won. by men
and ships, by guns and airplanes.
To raise armies and supply them,
to build the navy and support
it, and to furnish ships and trans-
!)ort, we must have money in
arge amounts. The expendi
tures of the Government for the
ensuing year are estimated at
$24,000,000,000, a sum which
baffles the imagination to con
ceive. That vast amount must
come one-third from taxes and
two-thirds from loans. The suc
cess of the Fourth Loan, like
those that preceded it is, there
fore, absolutely necessary. We
must work with the highest
speed, as if the war was to end
in six months. We must pre
pare in every direction, as if it
was to last for years. Speed
and preparation are both expensive.
