Thursday, April 8, 1943 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS PAGE FIVE. illion T HE GOVERNMENT of the United Stales is asking us to lend it 13 billion dollars in the next few weeks. We can do it. And we must do it. Every American must realize the truth: In this, our toughest war, we've made a good start. We've trained a lot of men-made a lot of weapons—built a lot of ships. But it's only a start. No man or woman among us would contend for a single instant that we're doing enough now to win this war! We've Got to Build More! We broke all records building 8 million tons of shipping last year. But grim-faced Army and Navy men will tell you that the 18 MILLION tons we're building this year still won't be enough! We've Got to Fight More! From now till this war is won, America must be on the offensive. In ever-increasing numbers, your sons, brothers, husbands must go into actual battle. Our losses have already begun to mount—and they will not grow less. And We've Got to Buy More War Bonds! Sure we're all buying War Bonds now. But we've got to help pay for our increased fighting and building . . . We've got to match, as best we can, the sacrifice of those Americans who are toiling and sweating on a dozen battlefronts—with the bloodiest yet to come. The blunt fact is this: to keep our war machine going, we've got to dig up 13 billion extra dollars this month. 13 billion dollars over and above our regular War Bond buying! In the next few weeks you may be visited by one of the thousands of volunteers who are contributing their time and effort to this Drive. But don't wait for him. Make up your mind now that .before this drive is over, you're going to march right down to your nearest bank, Post Office, or place where they sell War Bonds, and do your duty. And don't ever forget this: in doing your duty, you're doing yourself one of the biggest favors of your life! For United States War Bonds are the greatest investment in the world—bar none. They're investments tailored to fit your particular situation. And they give you the chance of a lifetime to order and get the kind of world you want to live in after this war. Every cent you put in War Bonds now will help to guarantee plenty of peacetime jobs making peace-living for every one of us. For your Country's sake—for your own sake—invest all you can!
