Judge William F. Ramsey, head of the Federal Reserve Bank at Dallas, and other well known men, will speak tonight at a mass meeting at Travis Park Methodist Church held in the interest of the Liberty Loan bond issue. Judge Ramsey is making a trip over the state, speaking at various points and discussing the reasons why Texas should subscribe at once to the $36,000,000 apportionment of bonds allotted this state. He was a guest of the Rotarians at luncheon today at the St. Anthony Hotel and there urged immediate subscription, to the end that the Texas quota shall be subscribed in record time.
