You'll be glad this neighbor asked you to Buy Bonds ^ E °AY SOON, a neighbor may stop by to talk about the Fourth War Loan and the share your locality is expected to play in jr. Or, lie may talk at « War Bond rally at the high school. Chances are he'll ask if you'll buy more Bonds. Will you look on. it as a request for a donation ? Or will you look on it 35 an opportunity to build up the financial reserve every business man, farmer or .employed person needs? No need to tell you it rakes money to run a war. No need to tell you it's your war, your liberty at stake. But we're all human and just a little bit given to "letting George do it." Only this time we're all George. We're got to do it! And in buying those Bonds, we're doing ourselves as big a-service as we are our fighting men and our country. We're building strength-personal financial strength --with which to meet the inevitable problems of tomorrow. DKO.MIMIlninNtcO.
