Thursday, Moy 20, 1943 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS PAGE riVi THIS ts my kid He's a pretty good kid. I always used to figure he'd get along all right in the world, the same way I did. But a war starts you thinking. Nobody knows for sure just what kind of a world my kid will have to grow up in. But whatever kind of a world it is, a little money behind him will help. That's why I'm salting money away for him now. I'm not taking any chances with his future. I'm guaranteeing it in the best way I know how. Every pay day, nearly a quarter of what I make goes into War Bonds. Not just when I can spare it. But every single pay day—week in, week out. It's taken right out of my pay, on the Payroll Savings Plan. That way, I hardly miss it. But it mounts up fast. And every one of those War Bonds will pay back Jour dollars for three. Pay it back when my kid may need it most. Sure, I'd be buying bonds anyway. I know the Government needs money to win the war, And, it's the least sacrifice a guy can make for the country that's been good to him. But the clincher with me is my kid. * * * CHANCES ARE, you're already in the Payroll Savings Plan—buying War Bonds—doing your bit. But don't stop there. Raise your sights! Do your best! How millions of Americans have done their bit— and how they can do better: Of the 34 million Americans on plant pay rolls, nearly 30 million 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% of their earnings in War Bonds. (If you haven't reached 10% yet—keep trying!) . 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% or 15% or 20%, but all we can! ™^ The publication of this announcement is made possible by the following firms and individuals: Citizens National Bank Hope Coca-Cola Bottling Co.
