HOW THEY DO IT IN IOWA
Sweeping Success of One County s
Liberty Loan Drive.
The enthusiasm for the Liberty
Loan seems to have been as great in
the Middle West aa here. Rev. H, C.
Ethell received last week's Issue of
the Bloomfleld Democrat;-published at
the county seat of his native county
(Davis county), Iowa. It gave an ac
counted the results of the loan drive
in that county, which has a population
of about 15,000.
The drive was carefully planned to
bo carried out in one day. The coun
ty's quota was $120,875. It was over
subscribed by Bloomfleld alone, whose
quota was less than $14,000. The wo
men of the .county subscribed $115,085,
nearly the entire quota of the county,
Every one of the eighteen precincts
subscribed from three to nine times
its quota. Mr. Etholl's native town
ship, which had the largest quota,
$11,223, subscribed. $41,350. The total
of the subscriptions, in a drive which
occupied four hours, was $565,000,
more than four and ono-half times the
quota; It was 'thought that belated
subscriptions would bring the. total up
j to nearly $600,000

Last year.at this time the great cry
was conservation. This, year it is
thrift. Cast year the ' nntto'n was
urgod by tho Government to conscrvo
tho natural resources and the products
of tho farms and fields and factories.
.Greater crops.were urgod, and canning.
clubs and city gardens woro the order
of the day. This "year the nation Is
being taught the lesson ot spending
its money wisely. The nation is being
shown the importance of putting every
cent where ij. will do the. most good.
Conservation and tbnn go hand in
hand.' The fact that ths farmer Is
being told this year lo be thrifty" dies
not mean he Is not to plant every
acre available and till his crops care
fully and harvest them when they are
ready for the reaper. It means that
he must Invest wisely the money he
gets for the splendid crops he has
demonstrated he Is able to raise.
The farmer. 'as a rule, can find some
thing for which to spend almost every
dollar he gets. There always ts ma
chinery to be bought or repaired,
notes to be met, fertilizer to be pur
chased, harness, lubricating oil and
groceries and clothing to be paid for
in the neighboring town. But In the
last few years most of the thrifty
tanners have been so well paid for
their produce that they are now "on
their feet," or more nearly so than
This country has been good to them,
for they have lived in peaco and htfve
