It can very easily mean the difference between winning the war and losing it. We are sure that the people of this nation will respond to the call We are sure that the people of this city and state will do their share And those who give can have the assurance that they are helping their "own boys and our boys, now in the service or yet to' begin it; helping to put home into the camp and into the trench with them, helping to put courage into their hearts and hope into their souls; helping to guide them thru the hell of war and helping to bring them back home with high spirits and clean bodies, fit to be the fathers of the generations who have to carry the American name and the American ideals down the ages yet to come ed; widow's inventory filed.
