DON'T PARLEY, RUT BUY BONDS Your share of the fourth Liherty Loan is an amount .which will bring your -total subscription up to at least 20 per cnt .of your wealth. - For example, you are worth $10,000, Twenty per centofUhis is $2000. You have subscribed to previous loans and the present loan as follows: , $250 first loan; $500 second loan; $500 third loan; $750 fourth loan. Total, $2000. ' "7 . " If you have npt subscribed to any oftlic previous loans you should subscribe $2000 toward the fourth Liberty loan. If you have ho money on hand, go to any bank and it will assist you to carry out your obligation to the government. 1ntil you have exhausted every resource to accomplish this end you have not fulfilled your duty. Ask yourself eery night this question as Mary Pickford does: "What have I done today to help the Liberty Loan?' Because you owe money is no excuse for staying out. You are a slacker if you look around for any excuse not to buy. FIRST BOND SLACKER CASE IS ALLEGED fiy MHKKTY A)..V 'COMMITTEE. The Fourth liberty Ixan Allotment t.'ommittee .
