The United States won the war against Germany.

many would now be formulating the terms upon which a

PLANS FOR SALEM WEEK.
Next week will be Salem week. It is proposed by the
Businessmen's League to put on a campaign of publicity
for the purpose of impressing upon people of all classes
the desirability of buying at home.
The object of this campaign is commendable and yet nf Lnnrlnr, srnnr, in the wnv that was the time tn hnve
it seems hardly possible that it should be necessary, j so Thev should not now seek to force us to break
Everybody should realize the advantage of spending his
money in his own community as much as possible with
out having it especially impressed upon him. It stands to
reason that constantly sending money out of a commun
ity will in time exhaust its resources, blocking progress
and slowing down business. The home businessman nat
urally spends his money at home because he employs
labor, makes improvements, pays taxes that build streets,
roads and bridges. Also he extends credit to worthy
people at times, conveniently carrying their accounts.
The mail order house spends its money in Chicago,
or some other large city, employs no local labor, pays no
taxes here and builds no roads and bridges. It demands
cash for its goods before the order is filled; when you
are short of money you cannot buy goods of the mail or
der house or large city department store. Then you must
go to your local dealer, or go without the goods.
There is only one side to the discussion of this "buy
at home" question; but it is well to call attention to the
fact that it places upon the home merchant the obligation
of keeping on hand a well assorted stock and of selling
his goods at a reasonable profit only. Naturally, how
cevr, the better the support he receives the larger his
stock will be' and he can afford, because of the volume, to
sell goods on a smaller margin of profit.
From any standpoint you may view it the "buy at
home" movement is worthy of unanimous support. More
than likely the observance of such a week will bring the
question to the minds of that class of people who are in
faith with the world by consenting to a peace based on
conquest and might, and, therefore, menacing future
peace instead of guaranteeing it.
President Wilson no doubt foresaw what would hap
pen at the peace table and that is why he attended the
conference personally. He knew that his influence as
president of the United States would be greater than that
of any envoy to whom the authority might be delegated.
He is fighting for the principles for which so many brave
young Americans died, and not only in this country but
throughout the world all lovers of truth and justice are
backing him with their moral support.
THE REAL INVESTOR.
It seems hardly possible that there will be anyone
who could subscribe to the Victory loan who will not do
so. The terms and interest are most attractive, things
are moving along at a rate which means increasing value
for investment, and last but not least, our work is not yet
' Should there be a Victory slacker, however, who
needs a word, there could hardly be a better argument
than the speech of Admiral Sims, who addressed a loan
meeting in New York at the opening of the campaign.
Speaking of the men who died in service, the admiral
