IMMIGRANTS LURED AWAY
According to the American Bankers Association,
there is an alarming exodus of aliens to Europe. These
people, their imaginations influenced by Bolshevik propa
ganda, are withdrawing their savings, selling their Lib
erty bonds and setting sail.
It is estimated that more than 1,000,000 will cer
tainly go, taking with them many hundred million dol
lars of American currency,
Naturally this sudden withdrawal of huge sums is
not good for the finances of this country, but we can
stand it. Far worse it is for those deluded souls who
have listened to the sinister whisper of "free and un
restricted liberty in the homeland.

hand the thing they think they want.
The first thing they find will be that in any Bolshevik-ridden
country their savings will be torn from
them without mercy, while they and the kin they go to
help may suffer, starve or bleed unheeded.
When they have seen the wages of their hard work,
their painful saving, shiveled in the roaring furnace of
Europe, this republic, free because it is law-abiding, will
have new meaning. Either they will creep back here,
chastened and worth while, or they will exert a mighty
effort to establish such republics as this in the countries
The most unexpected condition attending the issue
f the Victory Lean is the refusal of the Treasury De
niftmpnr tn nrwrnr nvprsnhscrintions. This is considered
especially remarkable in view of the fact that the issue is 'abroad. In either case it will be worth all it costs to

holders," and who after paying for one set of bonds begin
at once looking forward eagerly to the next opportunity,
will be disappointed. It will still be possible hereafter, of
course, to buy war bonds; but they will not be offered
again by the government, with its spectacular appeals
and easy conditions and universal facilities for subscrib
ing with little effort. In the future purchasers will have
to go into the open market, buying government securities
through broke re. They will have to pay cash in most
instances; and because of competition that will ensue,
they may soon have to pay higher prices.
It goes without saying, then, that there will be a big
rush to take up this issue. . It is the last chance to loan
money directly to Uncle Sam in an exceptionally desirable
type of investment.
Lenine promises to send an army to Budapest. There
we find Bolshevism, like Prussianism. "defends itself"

The United States so far has paid one-third of its war

THE SADDEST HOUR
I'm saddest when I sing old songs of love and home;
for neighbors come and fling big dernicks at my dome.
My voice is like the wail of some sick wolverene; I ought
I o be in jail of using it, i ween. The neighbors cry, "By
jing, cut out that ghastly chant"; I dearly love to sing,
because I can't. At some things I excel; at knitting I'm
a jo; but I would rather yell than anything I know. We
mortals and perverse; we'd rather do the things that we
do worse than any one in view. There always is in reach
some melancholy guy who cannot make a speech, and yet
"is bound to try. Some fellow with long hair will punch
piano keys, although his friends declare his talent tastes
of cheese. Some weary, mournful bore hands out a story
.stale, and thinks we ought to roar with laughter at the
Jafe. One thing's beyond my skill, I cannot sing for
prunes; and so I'm bound to trill, and murder useful
tunes. And then the neighbors come, and gather round
my shack, at eve, when fireflies hum along their glowing
track; they seek my cottage door, the men of hill and
dale, and for an hour or more they ride me on a rail.

You've Heard People Say It
"The people are tired of patriotism new that the war is over. The only
thing that will appeal to them is a COLD BLOODED BUSINESS PROPO
SITION." Do you believe it? Do you think people are going to invest in this Vic
tory Loan ONLY because it's a bully good investment?
Seventy-two thousand Americans went to France and "INVESTED" all
they had in Liberty and were killed before their "DIVIDENDS" came due.
THAT was a cold-blooded business proposition. Two million other
Americans went to France, too, and willingly offered their lives on the same
investment They knew they might never clip a coupon.
Thirty million other Americans at home got in on that "INVESTMENT
saved and sacrificed to do it.
That was a "cold-blooded business propesiition."
The Job Must Be Finished
We are still Americans and every "TRUE AMERICAN" is going to see
the job finished in the good old American style.
