Studio Light A Magazine 1918 | by Sara F. T. Price



We will win the war, but the sooner we know what is required and the sooner we bend every effort to furnish the vital needs of our armies, just that soon can we say we are doing our bit. The longer the delay the greater will be the cost, not alone in dollars and cents, but in life and happiness.With billions in money our Government is unable to buy one of the vital necessities of modern warfare. With millions of men, ample food, clothing, guns and munitions, we are unable to equip one of the most important divisions of our army with the necessary material to intelligently and efficiently direct our guns and human fighting forces.
