EXCHANGING BONDS MEETS APPROVAL

The Victory Liberty Loan cam
paigners arrived home Wednesday
from their tour of the southern part
of the county and report only Indif
ferent success, as nowhere did they
find many people gathered to hear
the message tjiey had. The stock
men are in the hills looking after
their flocks and herds, while those of
the home did not show as much en
thusiasm as in the former drives for
funds. The proposition of turning
in former bonds In exchange for the
Victory Loan notes has met with ap
proval and in this manner more are
being taken than otherwise. The
citizen of modern means is willing
to sacrifice a little temporarily to
meet the present emergency, especial
ly when it is pointed out that It will
be to their advantage In tbe end from
the fact that the Victory Bonds are
higher rate of interest and mature In
four years which gives the bolder an
opportunity to Invest the amount at
the commercial rate of Interest and
Judge J. D. Stevens is the outsldi'
speaker with the parly and has put
the subject very clearly and forcibly
before his hearer. The gentleman
spoke for a short time at the Liberty
theater In this cliy Wednesday even
ing but touched only briefly upon the
subject. He announced the meet
ing to be held in this city on next
Monday night when the matter will
be put before the people of this vi
cinity. Other members of the party
to make the tour of the southern part
were Manager Donegan. Wen. Farre,

With the exception of the last
