An Appeal to the Citizens of Oklahoma
America is at war.
^our sons and our sons will soon be on their wav to the trenches of
Some will return to their home roofs, whole as they left. Others will
be brought back, crippled and broken. Others, many, will be left on the
fields of Belgium.
The time has passed to discuss why America had to enter the war. In
1776 our fathers fought that freedom might be secure to their children.
That freedom is now threatened.
Defeat in this war would mean that sometime our own homes might he
destroyed, our own people carried into bondage, our own wives and daugh-
ters outraged. These things are now happening in Belgium and northern
But the fact that we must face is that America's sons, your bovs and
our boys. (Jeorge and Henry and Paul, will soon be fighting and dyin< in
the trenches of Europe.
Will they go properly clothed, properly fed, equipped to protect their
lives and strike for their country?
Or will we send them to Europe half protected to be cannon fodder for
Vilhelm's guns? «
You, Mr. Citizen of Oklahoma, are helping to answer that question.
Your answer is whether or not you do your share in subscribing to Liberty
The Liberty Loan must provide ready cash to equip and feed and
clothe the first of our boys to go. It is not a gift to the government, it is a
gilt-edged investment that pays interest and will become more valuable as
the years go by.
Oklahoma must furnish $14,000,000 NOW.
Reports indicate that citizens so far have not taken to the bonds
readily. The time is short. Our final answer will be recorded on June 15.
We must over-subscribe them.
Every tather with a son who will go to Europe, every merchant, everv
professional inan, every farmer, every laborer, every person who cannot
give his life for his country—can do his part. He can buy a Liberty Bond.
You need not have the tull price of a bond, $50 or more, in cash. You
can pay for it in installments. Your own banker will explain it to you and
lake your application.
What are you going to do?
Answer to the young men in your own home and in your own com-
munity by June 15th.
