,WednesJoy, June 16, 1943 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS PAGE PIVI I've been I .. •£• ••:» •* i WENT window shopping again yesterday. I stared into a big, empty automobile showroom downtown— and pretty soon I saw a car. She was kind of different from the bus I'm driving now. She was long, sleek and powerful-looking. The windshield sort of went clear around her, so that everybody inside could see out everywhere. There were no gears to shift. The cooling system was sealed—you never touched it from one year to another. She had synthetic rubber tires you couldn't puncture—and that wear like iron. And fast? Man! The motor was only half as big as they are today—but how it would take the old girl along! And on one gallon of that new high-octane gas to every three my car uses now. So—I made up my mind to buy her, then and there. And I will, too. One of these days, after the war's been over for a while, I'll walk in and drive her home. And I'll slap the money for her right down on the counter. You see, I'm in the Payroll Savings Plan, Been in it ever since it started in my plant. Every single payday, I'm tucking away all I can in War Bonds. That money's going to come back to me in ten years—and bring, more money with it. Four dollars for every three. I get-a real kick out of thinking how that money's piling'up for me. Money that's going to let me have some of the things I've always wanted to have—do some of the things I've always wanted to do. * * * Chances are, you're already in the Payroll Savings Plan— buying War Bonds—doing your bit. But don't stop there, liaise your sights! Do your best! How millions of Americans /save done f'jeir bit— and ftov/ they can do Lefier; 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% 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 wore money in War Bonds, through the Payroll Savings Plan. He asks us to invest not 10% or 15% or 20%, bat all tee can! •40S0$r Wfl #0$0 i publication of this announcement is made possible by the following firms and individuals: THROUGH THE PAYROLL Citizens National Bank First National Bank Ward & Son Roy Anderson & Co.
