» \v MOM STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS WRING the first year of our toughest war, ive — Trained millions of fighting men— made millions of dollars worth of fighting tools— bfii/t millions of tons of shipping to carry these men and tools to the fighting fronts. And to help pay for it all, we bought War Bonds. Altogether, 50 millions of us bought War Bonds. And nearly 30 millions of us started putting, on the average, 10 percent of our pay into War Bonds every payday through the Payroll Savings Plan. That was a good start—a whale of a good start. But every American knows that it was only a start. Nobody would contend for a single instant that what we did in '42 is enough for '43! Did we make 48,000 planes last year? Believe it or not—we did. But we've got to make 100,000 this year! Sure! We broke every record in the world last year, building 8 million tons of shipping. But everybody knows that the 18 million tons we're building this year isn't enough! We've got to do more fighting this year. We've got to do more building, more training, more shipping—and more saving. We've got to buy more War Bonds. Is that too much to ask? Many of us are making more money than we have made for years. The things we'd like to buy with that money have either disappeared or are as "scarce as hen's teeth." So, why not put that money intp War Bonds at good interest—$4 for every $3 when the Bonds mature? Money to help pay for the war—keep prices down—r provide peacetime jobs and peacetime goods and a generally decent world for all of us when the war is won. Chances are, you're already in the Payroll Savings Plan—buying War Bonds—doing your bit. But don't stop there. See if you can't boost your ante! Do your best! How millions of Americans have done their bit — onol how they fan do better: Of the 34 million Americans on plant payrolls, nearly 30 millions of them have joined the Payroll Savings Plan, (If you aren't in yet—sign up tomorrow!) Those Americans who have joined the Plan are investing, on the average, 10 percent of their earn- ings in War Bonds. (If you haven't reached 10 percent yet—keep trying!) W BUT... America's income this year will be the highest in history: about 125 BILLION dollars; In spite of all taxes and price rises, the average worker will have more money than last year—more than ever before! That is why Uncle Sam has a right to ask us,' individually, to invest more money in War Bonds, through the Payroll Savings Plan. He asks us to invest not 10 percent or 15 percent or 20 percent, but all we can!
