"Although laboring under the most

have not lost your courage nor your
patriotism,” Mr. Callan addresses
Texas cattlemen. "An appeal is made
to everyone to help to his ability in

in driving home the teachings of the
War Savings Campaign.
"To every Texas woman the Gov-
ernment has assigned the role of
Joan of Arc." declares Mrs Percy V.
Pennybacker, former President of the
National Federation of Womon’s
Clubs. "The French maid saved
the land of the Tri color. Texas wo-
men are called upon to save with an

vested in War Savings Stamps, majr

sure that the lesson of saving is
learned and practiced by all the peo-
ple, both President Wilson and Sec-
retary William G. McAdoo have em-
phatically declared, in Just that mea-
sure will the Government float the
bond issues that may be necossary
in the future.
The saving and Investing of the
War Savings Stamp quota is far from
the only thing based on the War Sav-
ings Campaign. The future Liberty
Loan bond Issues and the floating or
the Treasury’s indebtedness certifi-
cates are wholly dependent for suc-

Texans are called upon to save and
invest $91,000,000 this year in War
Savings Stamps and it Is vitally nec-
essary that this be done and that
everyone practices to the utmost the
principles of war-time economy
which the Government is teaching
with War Savings Stamps, Mr. Mc-
Adoo has declared. A single strand

-Pledge the President.—
■F he, would proteu himself and the
markets for his agricultural pro-
ducts, every Texas farmer has a l»g
part to play In the War Savings Cam
paign. D. E. Lyday of Fort Worth,
President of the Farmers’ Education-
al and Co-operative Union, stresses
the reasons why Texas farmers
should Invest to the very limit of
their ability in War Savings Stamps:
“In 1917 our total exports to Great
Britain, France, Belgium and Italy
amounted to $3,457,000,000.90 in round
numbers,” Mr. Lyday says: "Our ex
ports to these countries constitute
more than half of our export trade
with the entire world. In these ex
ports is represented the surplus pro
duct of our farm* and ranches. If
we fail to back up the Government
with our money these products will
not be exported, but will rot or go
to waste on our own soil. Labor wfl
be thrown out of employment. Our
production has alwaya exceeded our
home demand and, if we are denied
foreign markets and attempt to sell
the whole of our farm products at
home, the result will be demoralized
prices with returns far below the
coat of production and consequent
injury to every man, woman and
childi In Texas and the United States
No one will suffer greeter injury
than our farmers and cotton growers.
"If this condition ia not to exist.”
Mr. Lyday points out, "we must win
this war and to win this war it is
.necessary that the Government have
full flnancal support. For every aore
,he owns or rents each Texas farmer
should have at least $1 invested in
.War Savings Stamps. I hope that
every farmer in Texas will invest to
the hilt in theee Government eecurl-
tlee. They mean prosperity for him.
■There has never been such a good,
'Bafe and reliable Investment ae Gov-
ernment Savings Stamps. The Gov-
ernment looks to the War Savings
Campaign to underwrite its entire
economic program of finance. As
large a portion as possible of the re-
turns from Texas farms should be In-
vested in war-winning, submarine-
sinking, soldier-saving War Savings
Stamps. They mean prosperity and
victory.” .• —
