A SIMPLE* FAIR AND EFFECTIVE METHOD OF RAISING THE
MONEY TO PAY FOR THE WAR
U. S. RIVALS
QUEEN OF SEA
BALKED BUT NOT DEFEATED
Why must there l<e all this fuss anil
feathers about finding the money to
pay for the war. when in a few weeks
after war was declared we created the
machinery by which we made avail-
able all the fighting men that I’nclc
Sam can use for a lonj; time to come?
We got the men all right and got them
quickly, hut congress has spent more
time devising ways and means to get
the dollars than on all the other war
measures combined. What is the
Ask yourself this otic question—
“How did we go about the job of get-
ting men for the army?" and the an-
swer to tlie dollar question may hit
you in the face.
In the conscription of men for Uncle
Sam’s armies we took two distinct
steps. First, we registered all men of
military age in order to find out how-
many were available. Then after we
knew just exactly how many were
available, we proceeded by the fairest
means that wc could devise to draft

Hid you know that every item of
taxation in every revenue hill is based
pn the wildest kind of guessing? It
is the amazing truth. Neither con-
gress nor the treasury department
knows within millions of dollars how
many dollars any particular tax is go-
ing to yield. They simply guess, al-
low a big margin of safety, and trust
in the Lord.

• Let's look into this "free speech”
What is free speech, anyway ?
To hear a lot of the Pacifists and
pro-Ceimans, you’d think ’’free speech"
meant the right to say anything you
please. But it doesn’t, and it never
Any more than liberty of action
means the right of doing anything
“Free speech' means simply that you
may say what you please so long as
you don’t interfere with anybody else's
life, liberty and pursuit of happiness
by what you express. So “free speech”
has limits right from the start.
If in the exercise of free speech you
injure a fellow man’s reputation, legiti-
mate business or righteous activities
supplies to France if we are to "carry
on" effectively. “Free speech” which
works, directly or indirectly, to cut
down the men, munitions or supplies
thru indecision, strikes, dissension and
riot, acts as aid and comfort to our i
enemy. And that, according to an oh-'
scure document known as the Consti-
tution of the United States, with |
a large naml tr of our Pacifist friends
seem to he unfamiliar, is treason.!
Among other limitations on h’ree
Speech has always been the prohibition
of its use in treasonable form.
All of which leads to the logical con-
clusion that democracy has a perfect
right to suppress that sort of free |
speech which tends to injure the body
politic, and that Pacifist. pro-German
