BRECON AND THE VICTORY LOAN. The Brecon War Savings Committee, whose good work in the highly important cause of national thrift covers a wide district, begin their week of intensive effort for the Victory Loan on Friday, s It will be a nine-day week," lasting until and including Saturday, tJle 12th inst., and the promoters very naturally and properly expect that during that time a very large amount of the money that has been accumulated in this locality since the War Loan campaign will be placed at the disposal of the Government. So confident are the committee of suc- cess that they do not propose to repeat on a large scale the artful aid of alluring advertisements in many forms which they called to their assistance last year although it is intended to do a lot of real spade work quietly, with the help of the banks and other institutions. We applaud their confidence and their resolve, believing both to be thoroughly justified. Nor do we think well-to-do folk need anything in the way of newspaper "puff" to persuade them to put their spare cash into the loan. The investment is ad- mittedly a very fine one, offering a splendid return on the security of the State and its success means a reflex benefit to the whole community, for it will enable the Government, as we have before pointed out, to put a limit on our enormous taxation, to vastly improve the position of the nation ip regard to those of its war borrowings which carry heavy interest, and to approach with a certainty of results the great schemes of recon- struction to which we are now committed. For those who have a considerable stake in the financial soundness. of the State nothing could be better, nor could any present action of theirs be more patriotic, than investment in the Victory Loan and we feel sure they know it. But we should like to make a more direct appeal 6 to the working classes of Brecon and district. A large number of them have small sums they can invest if they like, and we hope they will entrust them to the Government. There has recently grown up in Brecon an organised Labour movement which, if it is influenced by the considerations of hostility to the Government which are deciding the actions of organised Labour in many other places, may be disposed to turn a deaf ear to the appeal to all classes to take their part in making the Victory 11 y Loan a great triumph. We do not assert that this is the case we do not think it is, for we believe the great majority of the working men of Brecon are too-level headed not to see that a stable Govern- ment is of more importance to them than to any other section of the community, Possibly, however, there are some among them who have doubts whether they ought to help this particular Government, which is not a Labour Ministry. If there be any such among them, we beg them to hear Councillor Peter Wright, of Newport, a trusted Labour leader, on -Friday. He will speak as one of them- selves, and we venture to prophesy that when they have heard him they will be convinced.
