PTpO MOST PEOPLE we do not feel that it is necessary to enlarge on the sound vslue
of the Fourth Liberty Loan Bonds. Everv man who has dinned his interest counons
. A A
on his other bonds has relt a little pang of regret that he did not take more bonds
while he was buying.
Also, any person who reads the papers knows pretty well by this time why it is necessary
to buy these bonds.
m The children in the schools-know. The very felons in their cells have pieced together
their slender moneys nnd bought bonds weaving a new garment of patriotic decency from
the torn rags of their lost citizenship.
There are few so ignorant or so poor as to plead why they should not buy when .these
have bought. '
But you may meet some few who are inclined to advaece reasons why it is inconvenient
to buy as many bonds as they obviously should.
Do not lend your ear in encouraging ottention to the excuses of the bond slacker
Tell him to write out his poor merger defense on a piece of paper and read it to. his chil
dren after the war. '
Tell him to put his-excuse in his will, as explanation to his heirs why Liberty Bonds were
not a greater part of his estate.
As for the rare individual who buys no bonds at all, tell him to go and offend the ears t)f someone else
with his absurd and insincere arguments.
. It is a fact that the bond slacker cannot keep his secret. It gnaws at his conscience and his only relief is
to prate his excuses to histfriends in the hope that some one will agree with him that he should not buy to
his limit- So he talks and talks.
You wfll do a double duty-first by buying and second by discouraging the pitiful mputhings of the non
buyer whoseeks from you sonie word of endorsement for his sorry failure to carry his share of the load. -
