Canada It no exception to the f;ule. To round out victocy we must see to it that tht^'debts contracted during the past four and one-half years are paid, and wa'^must undertake the reconstruction period. For this Canada needs money, and for thfet money Cnnada is lookinc to the people of Crnadc. They have an oppor;tunity to round out their duty by buying Victory Bonds in the present rViotery Loan campaign. Canada needs $500,000,000 to meet the war debts oontriii�,ted in the past few months and to moke a start on the period of reconsti^uction when the boys come homo. The duty is Imperative. Lethljridge has done nobly so far In the presi^t Victory Loan, drive, but we have not yet done so well as last year, Lethbridge has never failed to do more than her nhare in the various war endeavors. Let us keep up that good record. The Victory Loan drive does^not end tlli Saturday night. In the next four dnyi; lei us strive to reach tHe million mark. It will be a fitting climax' for those of us who have beeiii allowed to remain at home while the boys in kfiakl did the real work,'over there. And remember, with victory assured, Victory Bonds are a better investment tiyJay than ever they h|ye been in.'the tiast.
