On June 12 the Treasury Department of the United States will launch the Fifth War Loan Drive with a campaign that will continue through July 8. The Treasury Department reports that taxes are providing less than half the money required to continue the war effort. The goal of the Fifth War Loan Drive is $16,000,000,000, to be raised entirely from investors other than commercial banks. Of the total, $6,000,000,000 is to come from sales of bonds to individuals. In the Fourth War Loan individual subscribers invested $5,300,000,000. The records indicate that more than 55,000,000 Americans own at least one war bond. No doubt every physician invested in bonds during previous drives and may be counted on to do his part in this drive also. The advertisers in all the publications of the American Medical Association have been emphasizing to our readers again and again the desirability of the war bond
