Your $25 or 150 or t100 Extra W»r Bond may not have -great importance in your mind in making up a 5 i/i billion dollar total for individuals. But multiply yourself by 130,000,000 »nd then you see'in re«l perspective how truly great each citizen becomes in massing national strength against the Nazis and the Japs. Capt. Maurice Witherspoon, Navy chaplain aboard the Carrier Valp when she sank, tells or" » rescued wounded sailor, who, as he regained consciousness, asked: "Did I do my best?" That's the only question you, too,' have to ask yourself when you decide the extent of your personal participation in the Fourth War Loan. There undoubtedly will be large single purchases of War Bonds in this community, but yours--if it it "your best" v will deserve equally the red, white and blue shield you are privi leged to display in the window of your home. ,"Let's all Back the Attack.
