Samuel Gompers, for many years
head of the labor movement in the
United States and at present one of
tho leaders of the labor movement at
the Peace Conference at Paris, urges
labor, both organized and unorganized,
to support the Victory Liberty Loan.
He says in part:
"The Victory Loan is the forerun
ner of a happier state of society, a
guarantee of peace and tranquility of
the world, the hope of a better day
and a brighter light. I heartily join
with my fellow citizens in urging
every worker and every organization
of workers to take part in this splen
did effort to finance our democracy's
peace 'with the wealth and savings of
- all our people. Invest your savings
made safe by the Victory of our
Tremendous Guarantee Back of Every
Bond Issued by United States to
Pay Its War Bills.
Gold is the basis of all credit The
United States is now about to enter
a -fifth great popular campaign for the
sale of government bonds to the citi
wni of the nation. America has con
tracted more than $5,000,000,000 of
debt since last November in paying
war bills, and this money must be rais
ed by the people.
Every reader of this paper knows
that United States government .bonds
are the safest investment on earth.
But many of them do not, perhaps,
know just how to explain their belief.
One of the reasons why United
States government bonds are the saf
est investment on earth is that the
United States now possesses one
third pt the world's gold. This has
come about as a result of the war. It
had large gold holdings before the
fighting began in 1914, but since then
the nations of the earth have been
fAnH to srefr needed sunnlies and
maintain trade relations. ' j
The Federal Reserve banks do not
hold, probably more than two-tuirds :
of this nation's supply of gold yet ;
they have in their reserves more than ;
onehalf as much as the State banks j
of the next fourteen most wealthy na- j
tlons, and-abroad the State banks have i
collected practically every gold piece
that the people possessed.

GET THE HABIT
This year, with battles fought
and won, with Pea:e the lead
ing Paris style, there comes the
urge -to spend for fun, to fall
for Folly's gilded guile. I know
myself the day I heard the ar
mistice was really signed, I or
dered up a nice hot bird and sat
right down andt dined and
wined but just as we are crea
tures all' of habits we allow to
grow, my conscience started to
recall some better way to use
my dough. It's got me. You
have guessed it Thrift the
!x yeast that swells the penny's
size, that teaches us to make
short shift of things in which
no value lies. Each morning
when' I seek my job, I plunge
at least for one Thrift Stamp;
perhaps I buy it from a gob,
perhaps it's from a baby vamp
I do not care" so long as they are
working toward the self-same
end for Thrift, the thing,
which day by day informs us
what we ought to spend.

He must not be deserted now when

so far as the call of duty.
There is one more big effort neces

CAPTAIN SWIFT'S TALE
O, Captain Swift, of the Twenty
fifth, tell us a warrior's tale, of the
rifles' rattle 'and the bloody battle and
the shot that fell like hail. "It was
at Belleau," and Captain Slow, or
Swift, as the case may be," and my
brave command plowed up the land
in support, of Battery D And from
over the hill, when all was still, came
the Boche at double quick, and I
thought for the nonce that gone was
my sconce till my sergeant feaved the
trick. - With i hand grenade and a
bomb, home made, he hid by a shat
tered tree as the crafty Huns all
trained their guns on the boys of Bat
tery D. Then over the top on a darn
ed fast hop came the - rest of the
shouting horde, and snorting tanks
on both our flanks came near to hav
ing us floored, when Sergeant E. fryn
behind that tree let loose his hnd
grenade, and the tanks stopped short
and ceased to snort and a pause in
the dash was made. With great
aplomb he loosed his bomb and the
slaughter was good to see as the (Ger
man hound3 into bits were ground by
that blast of T-X-T. Arrtl I'm pleased
to tell we gave them heU that day in
Bellea Wood, and all of you, if you
wanted to, could do a deed as good.
