"You smash the damn Hun propa-
ganda over there and we will smash
the German line over here—"
America to the fore,
The Cannon's roar
The Clash of steel
The whistle of shrapnel—Ah what a thrill stirs
And, hear you not
A soldier boy's groan as his heart's blood
soddens the soil of some distant land?
Then up and be one with General Pershing and his val-
iant army to smash German lines by
BUYING LIBERTY BOXDS—
Buy now, not bye and bye—
Let the welkin ring:
America and Liberty forever—
DRIVE, DRIVE, DRIVE.
