Your War Chest dollars travel far to give them that. At home, your War Chest is on a fighting front, too. In hospitals and clinics, War Chest dollars battle disease, improve community health. In community centers, nurseries, children's institutions these dollars help prevent child neglect, family crack-ups and juvenile delinquency. Your Chest maintains homes for the aged and supports youth organizations. During this month of October you will be asked to give to the War Chest in your community. Give more than you now plan.
