WASHINGTON, March 26. The
government's general financial plans

tonight by Secretary McAdoo, pro
vide for a long period of rest from
bond Issues after the third loan of
. 1 300.000,000 next month, and for
floating of the fourth liberty loan
next October or November.
The amount of the fourth loan
probably will be greater than any
of those that have gone before, and
to prepare for it the treasury next

suance of certificates of indebted

that this will be sufficient to fill

they must be supplied with ammuni

Should this prove to be the ease,
it is possible, officers here believe,
that American troops will be with

heavily against the Germans when
the moment for attack arrives.
British Front Stiffens.
Today's official British reports',
while admitting further German ad
vances in the jcapture of Roye, in
dicated a slowing up of the direct
progress against the British font.
The official statements Indicated
that the Germans saw danger in th
exposure of their left ,lank to the
threat of the French line-on the Riv
er Oise. Evacuation of Noyon gavo
the French a river line to hold

the evacuation of Roye by the Ur't-
ish served to extend still further th
k German, supply lines against wh'ch
a French asan.t might be launched.
The steadiness of the French line,
it was pointed out. was an indica
tion in itself that the allies were
voluntarily abandoning anme of the
territory occupied by the Germans.
Bix Counter-Blow Expected.
If anything, American officers
were more confident tonight than at
any previous time of the outcome of
the drive. , They have never doubted
that It would be stopped. Now, how
ever, they are thinking of the prob-
able extPot or the counter-mow tney
fecl certain is to fall sooner or later.
There is no lack of possibilities
in the northern sector of the battle
area. The British lines there havo
been much less shaken than those

It Is possible that a thrust will come
from that direction also. The pros

PAY-LESS AS WELL AS
No greater evidence of the solid character and good faith of
the PainlcE3 Parker dental organization can be found than
in the strength of the guarantee given every one of its
patients. The hop-skip-and-a-jump tooth-tinkering carpet
bagger couldn't offer any such assurance to his custom
ers, and be justified in making that kind of sweeping
promise. , f
There are twelve Painless Parker dental offices in the United
States, two in Oregon, one in Washington, eight in Cali
fornia, and one in Brooklyn, N. Y. Any individual who has
had dental work done in any one of these offices is entitled
to follow-up work on the operation, free of charge, in any
4 of the twelve offices he may care to visit. In other words,
if any hidden fault in our dentistry comes to light, every
one cf our offices are eager to remedy the defect without
cost to the patient. On top of that, we urge our patients
, to call ai least once every six months and have' the dental
work given a thorough examination so that the job may be
always kept up in first class shape.
Think what this means to you I Your tooth work furnished
you at the lowest possible figure, estimated on the basis of
A-No. 1 dentistry. Your work done by specialists, all of
whom are, of course, regularly licensed. And, after, that,
your teeth watched regularly, examination and consulta
. tion free, and no charge made for putting old work in good
What value is there in the guarantee of an individual dentist, '
who promises you, say, a blanket ten-year pledge that his
t,6oth-carpentry will be protected? He may move away, or
quit his trade, or die. And then where are you? They
make, a big hulabaloo about my conducting" a dental or
