.PAGE six' THURSDAY, JANUAHYjjv. I!): 1 ,] if s time to buy PROSPERITY is not dead in America ... it A has simply been asleep . . . dreaming bad dreams . . . dreams of depression; of the fear of spending . . . the delusion of hoarding. We've been in a lethargy from which only a real alarm could arouse u?. But we've heard the alarm now—the alarm of stagnant business; factories will muted machinery and deplorable uiieinployinent—and we're ready now to get up and put our dollars to work. • ' . No, Prosperity is not dead. America still lias its great natural and industrial resources - - - its tremendous capital reserve—fertile lands; immense savings deposits in the banks; th e greatest industries in the world; the most skilled workman; the highest percentage of home-ownership the highest percentage of literacy; the highest standards of living and the most cultivated desires for the better things of life. It's time now for us to put activity hack of our resources; to indulge our desires; to release the money we have been hoarding—in other words to buy so that merchants can move their goods, place orders with the factories for more; enable the factories to employ more men and give to those men in wages the means to buy what you yourself sell or produce. , But we must all do our part in this Buy Now program.
