Unless you help now, you may be disappointed You've dreamed a long time about owning your own beautiful table silver. How would you like to wait a lot longer? ^ You've figured how to fit this important purchase into your budget. How would you like to pay as much as f>6 per cent more than you'd planned? Either or both of these things may happen—unless iction is taken immediately to release idle government silver for use by the companies making silverware, who have reached rock-bottom of their silver stock-piles. Legislation to release free silver (silver not reriuircd to back U. S. currency), at the OPA ceiling price of 71e'per ounce, is being held up in the Senate. A small group .of Senators—the "Silver Bloc"—-is working to prevent the passage of this legislation, hoping to get the inflationary price of $1.29 per ounce instead of the current ceiling price of 71c. This would be an advance of more than 70 per cent and more than three times the pre-war price of silver. Write or Wire Your Senators That You Need Silverware ! If you want to get your needed silverware quickly, and at prices you want to pay—phone, wire or write your Senators .today! Tell them your own story.
