We don't go for this compulsory business of holding a gun to somebody’s heed and making him turn hia pockets inside out for the good of the stote. We like to do things in our ovm way. And that way, as we hove seen, is the best way. It is the only way. Having set a qnoAa of $100,000 for ourselves here on the field, we proceeded to buy bonds until that quota was a thing forgotten. We pushed our total purchase over and above it. because we wanted to. Not because we had to. We reasoned H ool for ourselves, in tbe way all free peo ple have of thinking'things through.
