WILL HELP PUT
THE PUNCH THROUGH.
All that we have has been placed at the command of the President
of the United States for service for Our Country. President Wilson says
"Nation is proud of Boy Scouts of America." Expects Effective Work in
Fourth Liberty Loan drive. No better way for scouts and scout officials
to show their desire to help win the war.
WE are reproducing
photographic copies of
letters from President
Wilson to the Boy Scouts of
America, President Living-
stone to the President of the
United States, and Secretary
McAdoo to the Governors of
the Federal Reserve Banks
and Chairmen of the Local
Liberty Loan Committees.
We are also printing letters
of instruction as sent to scout
executives, page 4; letters
sent to scoutmasters under lo-
cal councils, page 3; and those
portions of letters sent to
scoutmasters not under local
council as are not contained in
the letter to those under coun-
cil, page 5. We do this to
make sure that no one lacks
complete information on the
details of our plans. We do
not attempt to restate the plan.
It is believed that these let-
ters, together with the manual
of instruction will best present
September 1, 1918

Ity dear Hr. Livingstone:
The active service of every scout and official enrolled
as a member of the Boy Scouts c- America is depended upon to
help males the Fourth Liberty Loan a success. The fact that
scouts secured 1,322,649 subscriptions, representing 4203,169,000
lh the previous campaigns is a convincing testimonial to the
value of organized boyhood for tha ld.nd of patriotic service
that is worth while. I am informed the Boy Scouts rendered
other valuable service throughout the country to the local
Liberty Loan Committees.
I beg every member of the Boy Scouts of America to realize
that tho service rendered by the boyo lias been greatly appre-
ciated by the whole nation and that not only the officials of
the Treasury and of the various Liberty Loan Committees are
looking to them for effective wor-le in the Fourth tS&npaign, but
that tho whole country, which is already proud of them, expects
it. There is no better way in which they can shew their desire
to help win the war.
Will you not be td.nd enough to arranga at the earliest
possible time, in accordance with the plans of the Treasury
Department, to have the Bey Scouts of America worlc out through
their local leaders in cooperation with the local Liborty Loan
Committees the necessary details for effective service?
Cordially and sincerely yours,
lir. Colin H. Livingstone,
President, Boy Scouts of Amarica,
Washington, L. C.
all the facts. 600,000 copies

Subscriptions ficial and every
