enthusiastically to the call to this
work. All called upon will be sworn
in as officials and will- be expected to
promise to carry on whatever work
they may be assigned. The committee

prepare now, not only to work for the
success of the third drive, but also
for the actual sale of bonds.' Having
been warned as to the time which is
to mark the opening of the sale of
bonds, we should be ready at the ap-
pointed period to lend everything in
our power toward the successful con-
clusion of our undertaking. Let us
get together and put it 'Over the Top,'
for liberty, democracy, and the United
States of America."
