SUPPORT THE PITCHER! BUY YOUR LIBERTY BONDS
PATRIOTICALLY DONATED BY H. M. KIRKPATRICK AND J. M. CRAIG
RESULTS OF LOAN DRIVE
Oklahoma As A Whole Has Made
Splendid And Patriotic Showing
Oklahoma City, April 24—While the
resalts on the Third Liberty Loan for
Oklahoma are far from complete, it
is certain, according to reports made
to the State Council of Defense, that
the state has exceeded its quota by a
considerable percent. As compared
with the rest of the country Okla-
homa will make a fine showing.
Campaign in Progress.
The intensive campaign Is being
continued over the state. Secretary
McAdoo will speak at Oklahoma City
on April 27. If possible he will
speak elsewhere. As Secretary Mc-
Adoo is the head of the Treasury, the
railway system, the farm loans and
other immense national enterprises
and the busiest and most important
man in the country next to the Pres-
ident, Oklahoma is fortunate in hav-
ing even a short visit from him. Char-
lie Chaplin, best known of movie
stars, and other well known men will
Some of the features of the pres-
ent campaign were distinctive. The
support given in agricultural dis-
tricts was splendid. Many farming
districts subscribed their quota the
first day. Others oversubscribed
within a short period. The Tulsa dis-
trict already has run over its quota.
Oklahoma cities almost without ex-
ception did well. The southern dis-
trict of the state seems to be lagging
behind, but is expected to make up
before the campaign closes. The
small communities of the state made
splendid showings. Oklahoma will
have her share and more than her
proportion of honor flags.
The Liberty Loan campaign, like
other patriotic efforts, has conclusive-
ly demonstrated the value of organ-
izations, especially of thorough county
and school district organizations.
Counties having such oganjxationa
put through their campaign quickly
and easily. Those with deficient or-
ganizations were handicapped and
found the process of getting the quota

IS EVERYBODY HELPING?
Is there a slacker in your commu-
nity? Have you noticed someone in
particular who shouts loud, but fails
to offer his services to war activities ?
If you have, it is your duty to become
an evangelist. You ought to talk to
that fellow. Tell him that Germany
can’t be whipped with wind. It takes
men, machinery, food and other es-
sentials. Probably you can convert
him. Then enlist him in a War Sav-
ings Society and show him the ad-
vantages of buying War Savings
