McADOO URGES EVERY AMERICAN
TO DO HIS DUTY IN LOAN DRIVE
To the lUlltor of the Krcntng lnlllo Ledger;
SUBSCRIPTIONS reported and estimated up to noon Thursday
amount to $4,000,000,000, leaving at least $2,000,000,000 to complete
the fourth Liberty Loan. Only two days arc left within which to raise
this vast sum. No country on earth but America could raise so vast a
sum in so short a time. America can do it and must do it. The desti
nies of the world and the hopes of civilization are centered upon
America. We shall fail jn everything wp have fought for and hope to
gain in this war if the fourth Liberty Loan is defeated.
Let every true American citizen today examine himself under the
white light of patriotism- and say whether or not he has done his
utmost in this emergency. The highest obligations of duty nnd
patriotism command every true' American to go immediately to his
bank or to )iis Liberty Loan committee and subscribe to the limit of his
ability to the fourth Liberty Bonds. Don't delay. Don't wait to be
urged. Be as quick to do' your part in this fourth Liberty Loan battle
as our soldiers in Franco are quick to obey the orders to charge the
Buy Liberty Bonds on the installment plan if you cannot buy them
for cash, Every patriotic bank will help you. If every patriotic
citizen will do his duty today victory for the fourth Liberty Loan is
certain. Tho continued victories of our armies in Europe, the certain
defeat of our enemies and the glorious triumph of the cause of liberty
depends upbn what the American people doin the remaining two days
of the fourth Liberty Loan campaign.
