Treasury Presents Film of
Events in Great Conflict
Showing What Victory Lib
erty Loan Bonds Pay For.
Secrets of the war recorded by tha
motion picture camera and only now
released by the censors are revealed
in "The Price of Pace," an official film
issued in behalf of the Victory Liberty
Loan, and being shown all over the
"The Price of Peace" is the only
official picture ever assembled which
purports to cover the war from the
day it was declared down to date.
The purpose of the picture as an
nounced by the Department of the
Treasury through Frank R. Wilson,
director of publicity, is to put before
the public a graphic accounting and to
make clear why there is now a Vic
tory Liberty Loan.
The picture opens with a scene in
President Wilson's office and a refer
ence to that momentous April 6, when
war was declared. It concludes with
a remarkable view of the Statue of
Liberty, in New York harbor, and the
homecoming of our army. -
But there is a vast deal between,
including the embarkation of troops,
their landing in France, final training
over there, then the desperate reali
ties of the front line trnchs, gas at
tacks, army railroading under fire, the
great attack from Soissons to Chateau
Theirry, infantry and artillery under
heavy bombardment, a battle between
aeroplanes, and the downing of an
enemy airman, the observation bal
loons under fire, then the battle dead,
the prisoners, captured guns, our
troops marching over the Rhine into
Germany, General Pershing and his
men in Prussia. Christmas with the
Army of Occupation in Germnay, and
the home coming.
Probably the greatest thrill of the
p-cture is in the scenes where our
troops are seen going "over the top"
and into the wheatfields at 4:35 o'clock
on that famous July 18, 1918. There
is a dim, misty light, that gives these
scenes a peculiar intensity. Other
scenes of desperate fighting show an
American battery under heavy fire
from enemy guns in the Argonne. In
yet other scenes American soldiers
are shown bravely advancing under
shrapnel fire across an open glade.
Two are shot down near the camera.
The activities of the American navy
furnish another important chapter ol
the picture. A number of 'impressive
scenes show the German fleet steam
ing to surrnder.

One of the features of the coming

in part, pay ll cost of saving the
lives of morr tV.n 50T),000 Yanks and
thousands of our allies, according to
Lewis B. Franfilin, Director of the U.
S. War Loan Organization.

did the men at German general head
quarters." states Mr. Franklin, "but
the fact that America was preparing
for a drive on Berlin struck terror to
the general staff.
"And those millions and billions of
dollars spent were far from being
wasted in an unnecessary preparation.
I feel that the fact that money was
spent and that an enormous output of
munitions was ready was the control
ling factor in the weakening of the
German general staff, and that it caus
ed their message to the kaiser that
they were beaten and that he must
sue for peace. And the way I seeit
is that this money, instead of being
wasted, can be written down as hav
ing saved the lives of hundred of
thousands of American men who
would have been sacrificed had the
war continued another year.
"That is the money we are going
to ask the American people for in the
Liberty Loan., We are going to ask
them for the money to bring our boys
home safe and sound, instead of leav
ing them buried in France. And
when the people of America realize
what this money did, we are not go
ing to find that they are lacking in
patriotism to 'come across.' "
