! the city committee has resolved to, take

' without delay. In previous campaigns
the shameful disclosure was made that
certain citizens, abundantly able to
support the Government In this war
for the preservation of American honor
snd ideals, had failed to answer the
rallying call of the loan.
Shirkers Will Be Shows.
"Beginning with today." declared the
conference of local loan leaders, "we
will establish and perfect an organiza

tha slackers and shirkers down to their
duty, or of holding them up to the just
ecorn of genuine patriots. There are to

Based on this decision a city-wide
search will be instituted, aided by the

questionnaires of the loan, and those
who have failed in their obligations to
America will have reconsideration
thrust before them.

mated that 70 per cent of the shipyard

Counties Doing Better.
Various encouraging reports were re
ceived yesterday by Campaign Manager
Robert E. Smith and John L. Etheridge,
state director of organizations, at state
headquarters, bolstering up Mr. Ethe
ridge'a sincere belief that he will win
his wager with General Talbot con
cerning the eventual supremacy of the
outer-state counties. Late yesterday
Mr. Etheridge issued the following
summary of recent state returns:
Grant County, Chairman" Henry
Kuhl. with a quota of $144,460, re
ports half that amount pledged.
Hood River County, Chairman Tru
man Butler, with a quota of $190,196,
reports $140,000 pledged.

ers who desire to purchase bonds on
the installment plan will be given op
portunity and the bonds will remain in
the custody of the school clerk until
they have been paid for.
School Proves Loyalty.
The Peninsula School reports 100 per
cent pledge organization, with a total
of $1150 secured by Wednesday night
Every department of the school, In
cluding domestic science, manual train
ing and the janitor, is included.
Not content with having secured a
100 per cent subscription among Its
employes, the Hosford Transfer-Com
pany has organized a committee of its
own, which Is rounding up many citi
zens who have not subscribed and In
troducing them to pledge cards.
What shall I do with the interest
coupons on my bonds?"
Scores of times each day this ques
tion is launched at George F. Nevens,
official auditor at Liberty1 Temple. Mr.
Nevins explains that any bank will
cash the coupons on the date of .ma
turity, or any time after that date. The
Interest money will be immediately
paid if bond-holders clip the coupons
and present them at any bank. Many
Portland merchants accept the coupons
in lieu of cash.
Belgian Realises Duty.
"I am a Belgian. It is my duty."
Just eight words sufficed for the
answer of Mrs. Johanna Von Yeggan, of
Overton street, when the liberty loan
solicitor called - upon her. Her own
people were in the path of th German
invasion. Their sufferings were livid
in her memory. A brother, employed at
the wages of a skilled mechanic, left
America to return and fight for the
cause of his country and the allies.
"No, I am not going to subscribe this
time. I guess the Government can get
along without my subscription. I own
$1500 worth now."
Thus spoke a prosperous storekeeper
of an East Side residential district
when the liberty loan crusaders called
at his counter. But they told him that
previous drives are not counted in the
fourth loan, and that General Pershing's
men do not tell their officers that they
will loaf In the trenches because they
