WOKTUY. MAY K. 1»«I SUPPLEMENT. TO BLYTHEV1LLE COURIER-NEWS, BLYTHEVUXE,' ARK. ' MAY 5~ 1952 ' GOOD FOR. OWNERS OF U.S. SERIES E GOVERNMENT BONDS MATURING THIS MONTH Now these bonds fceef> oh earning you interest for ten more years! ARE you one of those patriotic and thrifty citizens .who has •£* held your Scries E Bonds the full ten years? Here ia important news! Now you'll be able to keep those bonds earning more money. Without so much as your lifting a finger! Last year Congress passed the Bond Law which makes it possible for all Series E Government Bonds to continue earning interest for twenty years instead of ten -•• as originally planned. For example, a Series E Bond which cost you $18.75 in 1942 will pay you $25 in 1952. That same bond in 1962 will pay you $33.33, an average interest of 2.9%. And there is nothing for you, as a bond holder, to do. You need not exchange the bonds you have. You need not sign any paper, fill out any form. You simply keep your bonds as you have been keeping them. You ruay still redeem any Series E Bond at any time after you've owned it for sixty days. (The tables on this page show what you can get for it.) But holding on to your bonds is the wise way if you can possibly do it For in United States Bonds your money is as safe as America itself. Bankers recommend bonds as one of the safest forms of investment. Money put into U. S. Bonds regularly and left there growa and grows. It can build into enough to pay for a home, a business, a retirement fund, an education for your children, or whatever really big thing is your own personal dream. So if you have bonds which are coming due this month, remember the new money-making opportunity your Government is giving you. Just hold onto your bonds and they'll go on earning money for you. In the meantime keep up your regular saving with more U. S. Defense Bonds—through the Payroll Savings Plan where you work or the Bond-A-Month Plan where you bank. If you want to be paid your interest us current income— The new law also allows you to exchange your Series E Bonds, in blocks of §500 or more, for Special Series G Bonds which pay interest semiannually at the rate of 2)^% per year. For full details, ask at any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch. 9 Here'* how Series E Defense Bonds earn the flret 10 years Parted after litue dale 2 yea Maturity valua (10 yean from litua data) $25.00 18.75 $50.00 37.50 $1OO.OO 75.OO Redemption values during each yaar $18.75 17.00 19.25 19.75 20.25 20.75 21.50 23.
