Tell that to Muk Clark's Fifth Army boys in Italy. You have only a few days to do your duty in the Fourth War Loin Drive. Do you need a brass band to awaken you to your responsibilities to the fighting men from tin's community? For your own sate, we hope not. Your country needs you now, but always keep in mind you need your country more. You can't afford not to buy Extra War Bonds. Your teal canvasser is your son and your neighbor's son. In already too many instances, he is visiting homes here in the spirit because his rendezvous with destiny was death. Fall to do your duty by buying Ei- tti Wat Bonds and you ate slamming the door of your home--his home--in his face. Whatever the final outcome of the Fourth War Loan here and-nationally, it will be a failure for YOU unless you have bought all the Estra Wat Bonds you^an possibly buy. You alone are the judge of your fidelity to our fighting men. THE EDITOR.
