Wednesday morning at 7 o'clock a
group of girls assembled on the
high school grounds for a Sunrise

The Victory Liberty Loan
campaign is two thirds over,
but subscriptions have been
reported for little more than
one-third of the loan.
Is it conceivable that the
American people who with
heart and soul waged the fight
for freedom will permit this
loan of victory and thanks-
Our sons gave of their
health, of their strength and
of their lives that freedom
might not perish. There are
one and a half million Ameri-
can boys in France and Ger-
many. Now that the war is
ended it would be as reason-
able for them to dishonor the
nation by deserting the flag
as for the nation to dishonor
itself by deserting thein. Is
it a large thing that We are
now asked to lend our money
to pay the cost of victory? Is
American money less willing
than American manhood?
Let everyone of the millions
who have bought Liberty

success is sure.
