i Population to

It Is right up to the civil population
of tho United States to determine the
length of thj war.
This Is the stirring message sent to
this country ami particularly to the
people of the Southwest by George W.
Simmons, manager of the Southwest-
ern Division of the American Red
Cross, who is in France on a tour of
‘^observation for the War Council el
immong hits been «t the front with
American forces; he has seen
t the boys from the Southwest and
other portions of the country are do-
ing; he has soon tho work of the Red
Cross “over there" and he sends back
the message that if the people o# the
whole United States only will realize
that thlq Is a war of nations, not of
armies; remember that the American
array and navy will do their part, then
we can make sure of a victory for
America and her allies by acting as a
nation, thinking as a nation, fighting
as a nation, if we do that, Simmons
says In hta message to the Southwest-
ern Division of tho Red Cross, Amer-
ica will be the deciding factor In the
Nothing else matters If we do not
win the war, Simmons says In a final
appeal for harder Red Cross work and
more ships with which to transport
our men and supplies and munitions.

Hundreds of thousands of children

There are not better patriots lb the
United States, In the whole world.
In cities and towns the children, a

THE ORDflIS TO CMJANS
DALLAS, April 6.—‘‘Over the top,” civilians, over
he top with the Liberty loan!
These are our orders. They come from headquarters
are passed on to us by our officers. The fiercest battle in all
history is being fought. The situation is critical.
Success depands upon every man and woman in Uncle
Sam s army carrying out instructions. The man who argues;
who hangs back, delays the day of victory. The boys in the
trenches when ordered ‘‘over the top,” do not say, “I went
last time,” or “Let some one else do it.”
Argument and excuses by civilians just now are as
sensible and as patriotic as such things would be in the
trenches, inactions are their worst trial. The words to go
“Over the Top” finds them more than willing.
It shoqld be so with every red-blooded civilian who can-
not serve at the front.
The thought of this great big man’s job being done by
others should make every civilian strain at the leashes that
hold him. , " 1—*•—•

The government has given us thirty days in which to

As good soldier let us spring forward at the command
which rings sharp and clea1 in our ears.
WASHINGTON, April 6.—America’s third giant drive
for Liberty dollars opened throughout die nation. Billions
of war money will be subscribed during the next twenty-
eight days’ campaign, officials here confidently stated.
Headed by President Wilson and his war government
officials, public leaders had put party scores behind them to
stump for the loan. President Wilson was to open up at Bal-
timore with a ringing war message, warning against false
lures and voicing stern call for relentless pressing of the war.
ATLANTA, April 5.—More than fifty cities and coun-
ties of the Sixth Federal district have over-subscribed the
Liberty loan quotas after the campaign was launched. i-
