In these three weeks it was proposed to raise (lie sum of 13 billion dollar!;, or more than half us much a* was raised by five drives in the'first world war. It was obvious that'the task was hopeless unless the people of the nation we're desperately in earnest nbout the wnr. And it was equally obvious that here was, so to speak, a thermometer by which tlie fervor of the people could be measured with reasonable accuracy. This is why we believe you, as an American citizen, can take pride in this report. For it was written solely by you, the people. The result, in dollars Our goal was 13 billion dollars. Actually, (lie American peopic subscribed 18 billion, 500 million dollars. This was 90% as much as was raised in all five drives of the first world war combined. • . • It was, I think, as much a victory for America and the free American democracy as any military triumph. Where did the'money come from? You will bo interested in where this K'/i billion dollars came from — tor every dollar invested in War Bonds is more than a purchase; it is a demonstration of faith. The chart below shows the portion of the 18'/j billion that came from commercial banks. They were eager to buy more, but were limited to set amounts: COMMERCIAL BANKS INSURANCE COMPANIES 2-'W»rlo«n A?f194) . ri<lu<J<iD«or«n nut Jrei»n ; ' ' Naturally, it was your money that bought the bonds in the two groupB > above—^for you arc the people who put your money in banks and invest in insurance. But how about what might bo called your "personal" money, That is a very important question, for it is vital that Americans, as individuals,.buy .War Bonds with all they can spare. Our goal, here, was 2'A billion dollar*. Tho chart below tells the story: Who get* the credit? The credit for the 2nd War Loan goes to Ihe people. . • • It goes to the children who put dimes and quarters into war slumps. To everyone who, bought a bond. To thousands of patriotic banking people.. To advertising people who donated their creative talents. To patriotic ''merchants 'ah'd companies' 1 who^jinid tho bill for war bond messages. To radio stations, newspapers, movies, outdoor advertising companies, and publications. , But chiefly, perhaps, to those who turned Voluntary bond salesmen—a loyal-legion. of patriots.. Z'°W«rU>»n Ape. ISM 50 million bondholders To review your record to date, almost Kali our cntiro population own at least one bond —including infants, children, the lame, tho halt and tho blind. Or, <o look at it in lerins of those best nMo to buy bonds, sco tho chart below: Insurance Companies and other Corporations know that there is no sounder investment than a U. S. Bond.

But \ve can: not become complacent — lor our biggest financing job lies ahead. In tho first 4 months of tin's year, we raised 25 billion dollars. During the balance of this year wo must raise 45 billion dollars more. ' The war is costing us 100 billion dollars 'tbis year. Part of this will como from taxes, and the balance must come from Wnr Loant. , You, as an American, can take pride in what you have done. You have shown (lie Axis.that Americans on the homo front, like Americans on (lie battle front, will do all that if required of them — and more. But our need is great, Dig as deeply as you possibly can and invest it in War Bonds now — either through tho Payroll Savings Plan or through special purchases. Don't wait for "drives." We must win this war with bayonets — and with dollars. We who stay home in safety must provide the dollars —all that arc needed, It is Ihe very least we can do.
