Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - November 14, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta m TmmSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, IMS THE LCTIinRHKlE TUTf.Y TIMRALC 1*� s_m.j, - - JU~iJ..r'.i a -ij.HJj r..i .PAGE SEVEN El ALBERTA'S BRAVE TROOPS Edmonton, Alta., November 13, 1918. TO THE PEOPLE OF ALBERTA: The money we paid for Victory Bonds In 1917, amounting to over $400,000,000 did not leave our own country, but became the nation's w irking capital for 1918. We gave Great Britain credit for this Immense total, In part for the expenses of the Canadian army in Europe, which she paid In cash but took in goods from us, and in part to pay for her purchases of food, material and munitions, which she could not haVe taken without Canada's financial assistance. We thus got a liberal rate of Interest on our money, good profit on our goods, retained an Important market for our export products, and at the same time kept the money in circulation In our own country, securing for the majority of the people a prosperous year. Ample proof that outside of the necessity of giving a,d to tnc Empire In the war the in-veRtcnt was a desirable one' as a profitable business proposition. Though the fighting is over the necessity to continue our aid to the Empire through the sale of Victory Bonds is -as great as ever, for nearly the whole of Europe has to be policed and fed, our men have to be maintained at the front until peace ir.!!shcd and order fully restored, and then they have to be brought home and provider! v/iii llir means of making n livelihood. Our own necessity for a market for 1(119 in more vital.than It was for that of 1918, because the making of munitions and v/ar material will cease, and we shall have to maintain our industrial activities during the transition period, and provide new employment for the workers. The training camps too will be demobilized and thousands of young men will be turned loose to earn their living, and It will be our' duty to see that an opportunity Is given them to do co. We should also have in hand the capital necessary to obtain and take care of our share of the enormous business arising out of reconstruction in France an6 Belgium. Britain and the allies will give us the markets we must have in order to carry on if we will raise the money to, pay ourselves as individual producers until such tlmt as an adjustment can be made after peace has been proclaimed. The security of Victory Bonds cannot even be questioned, the rate of Interest is good, even under present war time conditions. It is a source of relief and thanksgiving to us to know that the terrible struggle Is over. Is it too much to nok every person in our province to capitalize sentiment Into practical patriotism by investing In a special bond In memory of the victory of the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of ninetceneighteen when the allies struck the final blow that shattered military despotism.
