The su- l>reme commander's face was wreathed In smiles nnd the usually LiM'iuus Marshall broke Into a hearty laugh when a sudden lurch nearly upset the entire group.

That battle cry won our country for us; and now, this very moment, the same battle cry is saving it for us, If there's anything an American will fight hardest for, it's his home. For that's where his sentiment is, everything he holds dearest to his heart: His wife, his children, his father and mother. We who are not at the battle front can strike, too, with might and main; not with war clubs, but with War Bonds. Maybe not so glorious a part as our valiant boys-flT the front are playing. But a necessary part, absolutely necessary for their success. What our part lacks in danger let us try to make up in sacrifice. If we accept this sacrifice as a duty, we'll find that we can buy more War Bonds, in addition to our regular commitments. , Meantime, this store is proud to have played its humble part in helping to furnish so many of the homes our boys are fighting for. Right now, we would much rather see you buy a War Bond than furniture. ' )*• CH AS. S. LEMONS "Home Furnishings Moderately Priced"
