O HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Frldoy, ApH) 16, 1943 2nd WAR LOAN DRIVE IS ON! Are y o u rt-time I T ISN'T HARD to figure your percentage as an American. Just check what you are doing against what you could do if you gave every minute of your day, every ounce of your energy . . . and, yes, every drop of your blood . . . toward winning this war. Many men and many women Have made that supreme contribution. Many more will make it —-working, fighting, and dying—for American victory and American freedom. For the fight ahead is a hard one. We are just at its beginning, not at its middle, or near its end. Of course, not all of us are—not all of us can be—in this fight with our lives. But every one of us, every man and woman, can be in it with our dollars! Why a Lot More Money Is Needed NOW! With every foot of ground taken . . . with every naval task carried out . . . with every bombing mission against the enemy . . . the costs of war increase. More men are needed in the fight. More ships are needed for our supply lines. More planes and tanks and guns are needed on the expanding battle fronts. This takes money. More money and still more money. That's why the Government of the United States is asking us to lend it 13 billion dollars in the next few weeks. Asking us to invest, this mouth, an extra 13 billion dollars over and above our regular War Bond buying. And make no mistake about this: Uncle Sam's got to get that extra money to keep on fighting this war! How to Invest Your Share! Some time soon, you may be called on by a War Loan Drive volunteer. He'll tell you all about the greatest investments in the world today— the wartime securities of the United States. How they're tailored to fit your situation and your ability to buy. But don't wait for him. Decide now to dig down—dig down deep. Then lake every penny you can and go to your nearest bank or post- office and turn the money into War Bonds. Sure, it may hurt. But a lot of clean-cut young fellows in uniform are going to be hurl a lot worse than you are before this war is won. And don't ever forget this! You're uol giving your dollars—you're lending them. Your money's going to come back to you —and bring more money with it. Money that can mean not only no depression after this war, but plenty of peace-lime jobs and peace-lime goods for you and yours in a busier, more prosperous country than we've ever known. So don'l wait. For your Counlry's sake—for your own sake—invest all you can! Here Are 7 Different Types of U. S.
