The War Loan.—In the current issue of the Barmouth Church Magazine appears the following paragraph under the local notes:—"Many ot us feel keenly how little we can do in a material sense to help the Empire. Up to this we have given some weekly sum for the support of the Belgian Refugees, and have contributed to various Red Cross Funds. There our usefulness has ended. We cannot enlist. We are not engineers and would be useless in a munition factory. Now however our opportunity has come. We can give the Govern- ment our money. Not only we can do this, but it is our duty to do it. It is a clear neglect of duty if we don't. Many will not be able to give a large sum, but in this business of the War Loan the small sum of the many is as important as the large sum of the few. (jive what you can, and be thankful that you have been allowed to help the men fighting for you. This applies to us all!
