LeS Us De-lint and Treat Your Cotton Seed Now Is The Time To Get This Work Dona — Kef ore The Rmh Is On! lee Wilson & Co. talks to us from London Excerpt fioiti bioudcast fiotii London by Edward Mat tow, cottiinailntor fo> the Columbia Broadcasting System in London. L)lD YOU ever army—a battered, broken, beaten, bitter army— come home? Did you ever hear strong men with the mud and blood still on them asking, "Where were our tanks? Why did we have no planes? 'Why no armor-piercing ammunition?" I- Well, I have—twice. When friends of mine came home from Norway and from Dunkerque. It's not -.1 pretty sight. But I can't help thinking about it today, when it's my turn to talk about War Bonds. You've been told to buy War Bonds —to join a 10% club—to help yourself as well as your country, and get $4 for every §3 you put in. Those may all be good arguments. But from over here, things look a little different. There are a lot of American boys over here now-—hundreds of thousands more are coming. Together with their Allies, they arc preparing to undertake the most difficult of all military operations—a sea-born landing on the most heavily-defended coast in the world. You want those boys to win. You want them to have the necessary gear —and better gear than their enemies have. You want bridgeheads bombed out for them. You want a fighter- plane umbrella over them while they land. And if you want it hard enough to help pay for all the stuff those boys arc going to need, do this: Even though you're doing about all you can, take another look and sec if there isn't a little more that you can spare for War Bonds— now! WHY U. S. WAR BONDS ARE THE SAFEST PLACE YOU CAN PUT YOUR MONEY! 1. Tliuy are obligations of the United States. If this isn't safe, nothing is. 2; For every $3 you invest in \Var iinnils you get back $•! at the CIK! often years. 3. They do not fluctuate in dollar value—arc never worth less than you pay for them. •(. You can name one individual either as co- owner or as beneficiary right on the jace oj the bond. t 5. Your savings in War Bonds Cannot be lost or stolen. Each hood is registered at the Treasury Department. This space is a contribution to America's all-out war effort by Arkansas Groctr Co.
