"The nation's quota is $1,000.000,000 a month and we've got to do our part.

"We have been telling Treasury officials: 'Let us know what you want us to do, and the citizens of North Mississippi County will do it. |f Set a figure and we will eat it.'/' Mr. Afllick said in discussing the attitude of citizens of this section. This plan of asking for voluntary loans, to be repaid by the' government in 10 years or sooner if needed by the individual, was decided upon instead of increasing the income tax at this time.
