KEYSTONESTATEIS BECOMING ALIVE TO THEmR SITUATION Tbe Efforts of Speakers Have Brongtt About an UmicntandiBji; of tlie Xeeix of (he Hoar. ' FHUjIXELfKlA, April 22.--That the entire state of Pennsylvania is thoroughly alive to the war situation and that its patriotism is spontanei.iii, genuine and self-sacrificing, are tbe conclusions of Ernest L. Tntin, chairman of the Speakers' Bureau of the Committee of Public Safety, wbo has just completed a. patriotic speaking tour of tte principal agricultural and industrial counties. Chairman Tastin was accompanied by Lieutenant Perigord, of the French Army, and 'their speeches were for the promotion of the Liberty - Loan and general patriotic sentiment. "The results of our tour convince me that, tbe state is now on its toes in war effort," Mr. Tustin said. "It is specially responsive to the Liberty Loan appeals and also in the matter of food conservation. Rural Pennsylvania, is now demooEtratmg-that it is sound at heart, that it will back up the government to the limit and that it will give the same splendid account of Itself it save in, 1861.' The farmers ^.re comiag out strong for Liberty Bonds. .In one agricultural .county our meeting was attended by crowds as- r!vrag in more than, five hundred auto- mobiles, and next day subscriptions i'or fconds at tbe banks.equaled in one day the entire · amount ;taken by the same subscribers in th.e previous loan campaign, V.' "Everywhere the turnouts-to hear Lieutenant Perigord's : raesjsage Irom France were the best that I have -witnessed since taking charge of the speakers' bureau. ; Several mouths ago I made a similar trip, and 'at that time tiiere was aa absence of the warm, patriotic enthusiasm which is now so noticeable. The change in sentiment is largely due to the good ; work of the local speakers' bureaus : in .organizing patriotic meetings in schools, churches and other public places. These meetings have given jttie public an understanding of the j war and its issues and have brought about a complete realization of wnat i is expected of and must be contributed by America, "Without doubt, the Committee oE Public Safety is to be credited with, having accomplished this spicudid re- (Sult.: It has got Pennsylvania awake and -is keeping it awake," DuaBar.
