For they were heirs to Canada's boundless wealth-^our mines, our forests, our teeming fields-the Hun hungered for these riches of Canada.' In his plans for world power, Canada was not overlooked in the German scheme of plundering the nations. Doubtless there are to-day in Berlin plans for the apportionment of concessions of Canada's natural resources, plans for the government of Canada, for the policing of our cities, the levying of taxes, for enforced adoption of the German language as was done in Lorraine after 1871. and all the other systems of government by German methods. And a brutal German soldiery would have enforced those systems by which the people would have been enslaved and every vestige of freedom and independence destroyed.;.. If Prussian plans had carried the smile would have passed forever from the happy little faces in our homes. Our boys and girls-heirs to Canada's riches-would have worked as slaves in their own mines, in their forests, their fields and factories] The fruits of their toil, the wealth of Canada, theirs by right, would have been borne across the seas to fatten the German beast. < While the beast lives, his venom, his gall, his merciless, monstrous ambition threaten our homes, j Canada - young.' high-spirited, independent-must stand firm. Canada must use the wealth the Hun lusts after to crush him to earth. t Canada's strength, the united strength of each and every true Canadian, must raise the shield of protection for i the generations to come. / The call will soon come for more of Canada's wealth. It is your money that is needed-every cent that you by cheerful sacrifice and loving self-denial can lend to your country. 1) Be ready when the call comes to buy Victory Bond? luued by Canada'* Victory Loan Commit in co-operation with the Minittar of Finance of the Dominion of Canada 7 I - 771?9125 ;
