HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS THEY SAY- 'Hcy, Bill, I heard that in order to pay for the planes and tanks and guns America needs for Victory, each of us should be pulling at least 10 percent of our pay into War Bonds." IT'S TRUE-r- "That makes sense lo me, Joe. Those things cost plenty of 'dough and we've got lo have 'cm!" THEY SAY— "Sure, I know tliat. And I've got a hunch our soldiers are going lo need more and hetler equipment than any fighting men ever got before!" IT'S TRUE— " You bct Illc >" will! And 'here's llic way I look at it, Joe. Us guys who can't tolc a gun or fly a plane can at least do our share by. helping to pay for the things our fighters need!" THEY SAY- "It would be hard lo heal thai as a sweet investment, wouldn't it? And when you lend your dough to Uncle Sam, you know he'll make good."- IT'S TRUE— "Say! War Bonds arc bettor th'an dollar bills in your pocket, Joe! Not only is each one an ironclad promise to pay,, backed up by the strongest Government in the world—h.ut il makes more money for you all ihe lime!" THEY SAY— "Supposing a fellow loses some of the War Bonds he buys— or somebody swipes 'em. I guess you want me to believe Uncle Sam will pay off on 'cm just the same."

Nothing can happen to prevent your gelling that money back—.with interest."

You get it b~ac£—with" interest.; Every 3 bucks you put in brings you 4 when the bond- matures !" THEY SAY- IT'S TRUE- 'One of the boys in the forge shop was trying to tell me tHati if everybody buys a lot of War Bonds, it helps keep.prices; down." "He's right, Joe. You don't have to be a brain truster to figure that out. Here's how it works: Now that the United Stales is making Avar goods instead of cars and radios and all: the things people ordinarily buy, there aren't so many of those peacetime goods kicking around in the stores. So, if, people with a lot of cash in their jeans start bidding agaiuafc each other to get those scarce goods, up go the prices!" THEY SAY— "Our plant has a Pay-Roll Savings Plan. Sounds lite * handy way to buy War Bonds. I'll sign up tomorrow for 10 percent. Hmm—maybe I can make it more than that. I'll see." IT'S TRUE— "Sure, our plant lias the Pay-Roll Savings Plan. So 'do lots of others. And people who work in plants where the plan hasn't yet been installed would be awfully smart to get one started.
