"I URGE PROMPT RESPONSE TO LOAN"--GOV. COOLIDGE
HARVARD CRIMSON,State House, Boston, Mass.,
Cambridge, Mass. April 25, 1919
I am very glad to say a word through your publication in behalf of the Fifth Liberty Loan. The various demands made upon us by the national government have been met with a promptness of spirit which has been according to the best traditions of Massachusetts. Your University has contributed very largely of its resources in helping the country to win the war. Some of her most valiant sons have given their lives for our country. To a history already full of glorious deeds, Harvard has added new glory to its record. Harvard University has always stood for the defense of American can institutions, and is now continuing to maintain the standard set so many years ago in the early days of the Bay Colony. While hostilities have ceased, and we hope there will be no renewal of fighting, the cost to the government is still a heavy burden and required the assistance of the people. I urge upon all a prompt and generous response to this loan which probably will be the last one.
