Bullock 5 00; M. 5 What loyal American will refuse to respond to this appeal issued by the executive head of this nation and the commander-in-chie- f of our armed forces ? We have the opportunity to enlist in this "volunteer army of production and saving." In Germany it is a matter of compulsion. The iron hand of the German autocracy forces it harshly upon the German people, depriving them not merely of luxuries, but of the barest necessities of life. We are asked in America to voluntarily postpone our needless luxuries so that our soldiers and sailors may not lack their necessary equipment. What the German nation does under rigid compulsion, certainly Americans will do in a mild way voluntarily. It is unthink able that there is a man, woman or child in America who will refuse" to sign the pledge to sae and to invest a portion of the savings in War Savings Stamps. We must respond to the President's solemn appeal we must sign the pledges, not because we feel forced to. !)ut because it is an opportunity for us to help win the war. The pledges sliould be signed cheerfully, willingly, gratefully. When the war is over and the period of readjustment sets in, then will the wisdom and the soundness of the War Savings movement become strikingly apparent to all. There is now more money in circulation than ever before n the history of the world, and this ondition is likely to prevail after the var is over. But it is not the nation vhich has merely money that will have he advantage in the coming days .of econstruction, but rather the nation vhich has the most available supply of roods and material of all kinds. When an individual invests in War 'avings Stamps he is not merely sav-imoney. He is saving, in leality, he material which he would otherwise iave bought. It is not lack of money hat worries Germany it is the lack of ecessary materials. A W. K HO PE WELL Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Barnes spent Sunday with the formers parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Barnes.

The issue of War Savings Stamps ia limited by law to 12,000.000,000, and in order to give everyone a chance to secure a part of this "safest Investment ever devised," a limit of $1,000 for each individual was set by the Government. As the total issue represents only about $18 for each individual in the country, the wonder is that any effort should be necessary to sell them, and when the investors of moderate means once realize the advantage of this form of security, there will be a general demand for "the feature of this security 1b that it Loan campaign.

Above all question of selfish interest, however, stands the great fact that War Savings Stamps offer patriotic Americans an opportunity to help win the war by lending his money to Uncle Sam in amounts ranging from twenty-fivcents up, and there is no doubt that the bringing of the war to our shores by the submarine campaign will greatly stimulate the desire to do 80. e LOUISVILLE BANK GOES ON HONOR ROLL The Liberty Insurance Bank, of Louisville, has again shown its patriotism and progressive spirit by going on the honor roll of the War Savings Stamp Limit Society. This ia done by the subscription of every member of its board of directors to $1,000 in War Savings Stamps, which is the limit individuals and corporations are allowed to purchase of Baby Bonds. The War Savings Committee has every hope that all banks in Louisville will soon be on this honor roll. This step of the Liberty Insurance Bank serves to attract additional attention to its other and varied efforts to serve the Government in the present critical period. The bank now operates a very complete department for War Savings Stamps and Thrift Stamps, and it is a very busy department. The bank has seven directors, every one of whom has bought the limit of $1,000 of War Savings Stamps. Bitha Daugherty. J. H.

If Germany had deliberately sought for a method which would do more to stir this country and bring it to its senses and to a resolution to gather all its strength, she could have found no better means than to have sent her submarine to prey off of the ships of our coast. The sinkiog of American vessels almost within sight of our ccast line, by German submarines is. or ought to be, sufficient proof to any American that we are not safe from the ravages of war even though we are removed 3,000 miles from the conflict. The presence of German submarines off our coast is a positive challenge to every American.
