THE SOLDIER AND THE BOND
"It Is a sacred duty of every cltl
cea and It should be regarded as a
glorious privilege by every patriot to
aphold the Government's credit with
the same kind of self-sacrifice and no
bility of soul that their gallant sons
exhibit when they die for us on the
battle fields of Europe."
Secretary McAdoo has issued no
stronger call upon the American peo
ple to support the Liberty Loan. Be
hind every American soldier -in
France, back of every American sailor
on the seas, there should be a worker
and a bond buyer at home. There is
the braver part, hut we who remain
at home can be no less useful if we
exhibit that self-sacrifice that they
demonstrate in risking their lives.
It the American people possess and
put Into effective force the same faith
In Americanism that the Germans
show for their kultur, the struggle
between German kultur and American
civilization will be a short one and
Amorica's victory overwhelming.
HOUSEWIVES ND CERTIFICATES
-Virtually every housewife In the
, ..country is familiar .with tho trading
stamp or gift certificate which is given
by many merchants and manufactu
rers', and has at various times saved
such'stamps and certificates until Bhe
had a required number, when she pre
sented the stamps or certificates to
the merchant for redemption, receiv
ing an article of merchandise or cash,
Which Is equivolent to a discount
Through the Thrift Stamp the Unl
- ted States Government offers ,every
hous wife in the" country a rare op
portunity of doing her "bit" or her
ftwo bits" for her country, and at the
same time creating a savings account
for her own security.
By saving the pennies, nickels and
dimes until she has accumulated 25
i cents, she can buy a Thrift Stamp
from the postman atthe door, or the
rural letter carrier, pr a tany post
office or bank or trust company, and
most any store. When she has her
Thrift Card full 16 Thrift .Stamps
she may take the card, and, with 1C
cents additional, securo a War Sav
ings Stamp, which In five years
January, 1923 brings her $5 In cash,
thus receiving interest at the rate of
4 per cent, compounded quarterly. Or
""she may get her money back at any
time with 3 per cent Interest upon ten
In addition to rendering her coun
try patriotic servico by saving and
lending the United States Government
her savings, she has mado a good in
vestment, with gilt-edge security.
So urgent Is the Government's neod

Acting on ordera.from tho German
Government, the officers and crews of
tho German ships Interned In Ameri
can waters-Inflicted such damage up
on the machinery of the vessels as
they deemed absolutely certain to
keep tho ships out of service for two
years. By that time; the Germans
thought the war would be over.
But American efficiency and Ameri
can invention effected the necessary
repairs In from six to eight months
and at a cost of $273,000; the Ger
mans had figured the cost of repairs
at $2,600,000 and the necessary time
OREGON'S YEAR OF WAR
The mothers, the fathers and the
wives of Oregon have contributed
22,500 of their boys to the service of
their country since April 6. a year ago
9 per cent of the adult male population
of the state.
The people of Oregon, In the same
length of time, have Invested $39,000,
000 In war securities and have con
tributed more than $2,500,000 towards
the support of the various war relief
activities. They are about to add,
during the present Liberty loan drive,
$18,495000 to the total already achieved
and before the year has ended they
doubtless will have made an Invest
ment of $17,000,000 In War Savings
Certificates and Thrift Stamps, that
being the quota set aside for the state.
Oregon has cause to bo proud of her
war time efforts of the past year. And
sho has high incentive for still greater
and continuous effort during the com
ing months, and on so long as the
war shall last. The state has been
well to. tho forefront in the activities
of the past. We can not afford to
prove laggard now.
Oregon's part in the war program
is. worthy of review. Her people in
vested $11,802,900 during the first Lib
erty loan drive and $25,198,550 during
the second. Up to the present time
more than $2,000,000 have been inves
ted In War Savings Certificates and
Thrift Stamps. Tho various war relief
calls haye been met with contributions
of more than $2,500,000.
But money investment or contribu
tion aside, strong support is being
given through the expanding ship
hulldjng activities of the state. There
are now 22 shipyards along the Will
amette and Columbia rivers actively
engaged In building ships, while four
i others are ready and one is in course
of construction. These yards are em
ploying 23,271 men and are now hold
ing contracts totaling from $155,000,
.000 to $160,000,000.
J At the beginning of 1917 there were
I but nine yards, three for steel and
They employed 4200 men with a
monthly payroll of $300,000. They
had 48,000 tons on the ways and held
contracts amounting to $22,000,000.
Now the payroll, has grown to $2,
212,000 per month and there are
400,000 tons oh the ways under course
of construction. Snce January 1,
1918, the, yards, of tho state have
launched 23 vessels, of 124,000 dead
Tho state is doing its part to help
win the war. It lias sent 22,600 of
its best young manhood into the
trenchcH of Franco, and will send
more. It lias sent $41,000,000 for the
comfort and care of .those boys', and
of all the boys, who are fighting the
battles ot. liberty. Before the year
is past it will havo added to till a
total by' some $38,000,000 additional.

WHY WE ARE

EPHRAIM DOUGLASS ADAMS

"The object of thli war It to deliver
the free peoplee of the world from the'

military eitabllihment controlled by an
Irresponsible government! which, havlnp
secretly planned to dominate the world,

What sort ot a penco docs Gormany

swered In a sentence: a. peaco which
will enable her fo fulfill In the next
war the atmt the hat failed to ful
fill in this. What Is the peace tho
Allies with? Again the answer Is
brief: a peace that will make sure
that "It shall not happen again."
This war has already killed (not
maimed or wounded) over 8,000,000
young and vigorous men, yet Gormany
still believes that war is essential tu
human progress, and that any act.

that theory America has set her will.
Docs anyono still doubt that Ger
many believes In war? Here are four
leaders of Germany speaking: "Per
petual peace Is a dream, and It Is not
even a baautltul dream; war forms
part of the eternal order Instituted
by God." "A long peace not only
leads to enervation, but allows ot the
existence ot a multitude of pitiful,
trembling, miserable creatures . . .
who cling fast to life with loud cries
about their 'right' to exist, block the
way for real strength, make tho air
fetid, and altogether defile the blood
of tho nation," "Tho worst of hypoc
risies Is the participation by Gor
many In The Hngue Conference." "We
must not look for permanent peace as
a result of this war. Heaven defend
Germany from that." And Treltschke,
the historian-tutor to the military
class of Germany, tnught over and
over again that war was the only
means of achieving world leadership:
that war "is to bo conceived as nn
ordinance set by God"; that "war is
just and moral, and that the Idea of
eternal peace Is both unjust and Im
moral and Impossible."
These theories, put In practice, have
made of Germany the Cain of civiliza
tion "his band against every man's
hand." In self-defense and In mere
telf-retpect, America waB forced to

the treatment we received from Ger
many. When the European war came in
