THIS IS THE YEA DECISION.' The war none of us wanted is the war all of us have to win--and we're being given our chance this year to make 1944 the year that counts, the year of decision. That's where you come in. For you are being asked this month to play your part in the 1944 march to victory by buying the Bonds that will help to make this the year to be proud of. And it's not only your duty but your privilege, for with every Bond you buy you will be buying your share of the fruits of victory as well. For the money you invest now will be yours to spend later for things you have always wanted. Your duty as an American is to buy at least one. extra §100 Bond. But that is just the rock-bottom figure. Thousands of Americans are going to have to invest much more than that during this Loan drive to make certain that this will be the year that marks the end of the Nazi power. This Drive is your Drive--your chance to prove that you are still backing the attack. BUY WAR BONDS HAMM'S ·**---BEER ItSTtN TO "Preferred Melodiei," Men., Wed., fri., 6:45 P.
