Third Liberty Loan
Drive Begins April 6
Tilt; .sale of the third issue of Liber-
ty Loan Bonds will begin Saturda
morning, April 6th. and will doubt-
less be the msot extensive as well as
intensive ever made in the Unitd
The sale of this issue of bonds is
goinx to call out every idle dollar,
both from the country people and
the town and city, but the country
people are going to be relied upon to
take a greater amount of bonds of
this issue than of the previous issues
This is necessary from several 'polntsj
,a,T!,1Lg0r,ernn>ent is Preparing spec-
ial advertising for thi? great drive.

j metropolitian cities, it d,, this
without the banks of the nation hav-
t0 f"a ce the greater part of 'he
loan I he money must come from the
GENERAL Pl'BLIC—the individual.
The people of each community
must feel this necessity far more than
they felt it in either of the previous
Liberty Loan campaigns, and the gov-
jernment has said that ihe press can
| Place the proposition before the pub-
lic better than any other facility and
i can put the Loan OVER THE TOP
Display advertising is essential to I
this result and the public—the busi-1
ness and professional men the i-ocial
and fraternal organizations, the farm-
ers, people of every class will co-oper-
ate with the press in providing the
space for this necessary display ad-
Govermental departments, includ-
ing the Treasury department, realize
that the newspapers are giving freely
of their news and editorial space and
are doing their full share. In practi-
cally every community in the nation
the public has demonstrated its wil-
lingness to co-operate with the news-
papers by purshasing advertising
pa a that is needed to PROMOTE
THE SALE OF LIBERTY BONDS.
Bringing it down locallv, we will
say that Lexington will do her part
She has never failed. She will not
fail. Uncle Sam can depend on us
