The Why? of Another
Victory Loan
\A7HEN, on the morning of November 11th, 1918, the guns were hushed and
Y Y glad tidings flashed across the world, there followed with the Nation's
Prayer of Thanksgiving, one yearning query, which found echo in the faster beating hearts of wives, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and sweethearts. That
query was, "How soon will our boy be home?" And, from France and Flanders,
from Italy and Egypt, from Palestine and from far-off Siberia, there came an
answering echo, " How soon, how soon, may we go home?"
r^ANADA caught the spirit of these longings, and at once resolved to satisfy
^ them. It was an appalling task. Shipping was tragically scarce. The composition of the Army of Occupation had not then been settled. And other parts of
the Empire as well as Canada were looking for the speedy return of their men.
npHE problem was this. The half-million men that Canada had overseas had
■*■ taken more than four years to transport to the field of battle. To bring
them home in a few months was a gigantic undertaking—one to tax all Canada's
ingenuity and resources. Canada solved the problem, but it meant crowding into
a few short months, an expense for demobilization which it was impossible to foresee.
HPHEN, too, besides the sentimental aspect of the necessity for bringing the men
x    home quickly the economic side could not be overlooked.  That was, to transform efficiently and speedily the nation's army of fighters into a national army of

to soldiers    That ,1^,^ tacurre(| «,•. of
bringing home troops from overseas.
The payment of .11 soldiers still undemobiliied.   This
includes more than 20,000 sick and wounded who are
still in hospital, and who of course remain on the Army
payroll till discharged.
The upkeep of hospitals, and their medical and nursing
staffs, until the need for them is ended.
These three items alone will use up at least $200,000,000
of the Victory Loan 1919.
Gratuities     There '* al,°the -f*tuity whicn
has been authorised, and has been
and is being paid to assist soldiers to tide over the period
between discharge and their re-adjustment to civil life.
For this purpose alone, $61,000,000 must be provided
out of the Victory Loan 1919, in addition to the
$59,000,000 already paid out of the proceeds of the
Victory Loan 1918.
Land Furthermore, soldiers who desire
£3_x.|_-_>.-.4V to become farmers may, under
Settlement the Soldiers' Land Settlement
Act, be loaned money by Canada with which to purchase land, stock and implements. The money so
advanced will be paid back; meantime each loan is
secured by a first mortgage. Up to August 15th,
29,495 soldiers had applied for land under the terms
of this Act; and 22,281 applications had been investigated, and the qualifications of the applicant approved.
For this purpose Canada this year requires $24,000,000.
Vr.rfltinn._l Por tb'8 work which, with the
r«"„•„}„ i Vocational Training and Soldiers'
1 raining Service   Departments,   embraces
the major activities of the Department of Soldiers'
Civil Re-establishment, an appropriation of $57,000,000
is necessary.
These national expenditures are war expenses. They
will be accepted readily by every citizen who gives
thought to the task which Canada faced following the
Armistice, and to the success with which she has met it.
Canada needs national working
capital, so that she may be able
to sell on credit to Great Britain
and our Allies the products of
our farms, forests, fisheries,
mines and factories.
You may ask "Why sell to them if they can't pay cash?''
The answer is, "Their orders are absolutely essential
to the continuance of our agricultural and industrial
The magnitude of these orders and the amount of employment thus created, will depend upon the success
of the Victory Loan 1919.
The " Why " farmers and manufacturers (and
t /^M/i{* that includes the workers on these
OI ^reail orders) must be paid  cash  for
Loans #    their products. Therefore, Canada
must borrow money from her
citizens to give credit, temporarily, to Great Britain and
our Allies. Actually, no money will pass out of Canada.
If Canada does not give credit, other countries will;
and they will get the trade, and have the employment
that should be ours, to distribute amongst their workers.
And remember, we absolutely need these orders to maintain employment. If we don't finance them business
will feel the depression, employment will not be as
plentiful, and conditions everywhere will be adversely
Por Trans- Money must also be available to
nnrt at inn car,y on "" "ation's shipbuilding
portal-Oil programme, and other transport
ation development work.
For loans to Provincial Housing Commissions who are
building moderate priced houses.
These, then, are some of the things for which Canada
needs national working capital. She is in the r» -itlon
of a great trading company, and her citizens who buy
Victory Bonds are the shareholders.
Those who give thought to our outstanding obligations to soldiers, and to our need .'or
national working capital, cannot fail to be impressed with the absolute necessity for the
Victory Loan 1919

Far beyond the expectation of the
Empire and the world, Canada fought
and strove and paid gallantly for five
years. Indeed it may he doubted if
any native Canadian witnessed the
notable effort of the Dominion without
amazement. Thc true spirit of the
people was not understood until the
guns began to speak in  Belgium.
it rose, month by month, to greater,
and still greater, heights. The double
climax came in the autumn of 1918,
when the Canadian Corps marched
from Cambrai to Mons, and when tlie
nation subscribed $610,000,000 for Victory Bonds.
In the war Canada found herself.
The name "Canadian" Ls respected the
world over; not only in the nations
allied with tlie British Empire in the
defence of liberty, but in Germany itself.
Tb" fighting is over. The great task
of dearticulating the organization built
by four years of ardent effort is almost
complete. The work of maintaining
ihe army until it is fully repatriated,
and of fulfilling completely the national obligations to the soldiers has added
much to Canadian War expenditure.
For that reason there is instant
need of a new Victory Loan. The patriotic people whose ardor and energy
brought Canada into the sunlight are
asked to keep the Dominion there by
buying bonds. The honor of the nation is involved in the success of the
Loan, The people who supported the
soldiers constantly while they were
in Prance will not fail in one particular to continue that support until
tlie men are re-established in profitable civilian occupations.
Considering the nehievemnets of this
proud people, there is reason for the
belief that the success of this latest
Victory Loan will be instant and overwhelming. But all citizens must have
a part in il. It Is not a task to he half
done by the whole people, or whollly
done by half tbe people. Let every
citizen subscribe!

| HE withstood everything in the field and

_   only car to survive until the cessation of
hostilities"—Extract from letter received by
Ford Motor Company from a British Soldier,
in Africa.
Over shell-torn roads, through water soaked fields, second
only to the tanks in its power to climb debris and crater holes,
the Ford car made a world famous record in the fighting area
of the great war.   In press despatches, in field reports, in
letters, in rhyme and song the praises of the Ford were sounded.
In France    •       700 cars out of 1,000 were Fords
In Italy-      -       850 cars out of 1,000 were Fords
In Egypt     ■       996 cars out of 1,000 were Fords
In Mesopotamia   999 cars out of 1,000 were Fords
The Ford power plant that established this world-wide record
in every theatre of the war remains the same.   It will be in
the Ford you buy.

The Expenditure of
How the last
Victory Loan
was spent
For Trade
gEFORE buying Victory Bonds again you may want to
know how Canada used the money you loaned her last
Canada borrowed the money to carry on the war and to provide credits for Great Britain and our Allies.
QONSIDERABLY more than one-half of the Victory
Loan 1918 was spent on our soldiers. This included
$312,900,000, for paying them, feeding them, bringing them
home, separation allowances to their dependents, maintenance
of medical services and vocational training schools.
$59,000,000 of the Victory Loan 1918 was paid on account
of authorized Soldiers' gratuities.
$9,000,000 was spent at Halifax for relief and reconstruction
after the disaster,
Other disbursements were not, strictly speaking, expenditures, but National Re-investments.
To Great Britain for example:
$173,500,000 was loaned for the purchase  of our
wheat and cereals,
$9,000,000 for our fish.
$30,000,000 for other Foodstuffs.
$2,900,000 for Canadian built ships.
