BIGGEST SELING FORCE EVER KNOWN SELL WAR STAMPS Western Pennsylvania To Be ThoroughTy Organized For Campaign. $3,000,000 ALREADY SOLD Qoota of This Territory is $58.«6o,(X»-. Teachers, Umnkcrs, School Children and Others t-r^ed to Join the "Great . Armj of Boll oi Honor Salesmem. ' PlTTSBURfi. · Feb. 2.--J. Denny Lyon, federal director oC. savings for the zone wiich includes this state, reports thai Western Pennsylvania is 'leading nearly all sections. oE the : ,coutttry in tb« purchase of War Thrift 'and Savings Stamps. Under the direction of former Congressman James Francis Burke, of this city, director of savings For the western part of the state every community has been organized so that It would be difficult to find a man. woman or child who has hot heard of the great government offer, and of the millions who live in this section, lully three-fourths are now holders of "Baby Bonds." Sales in Western Pennsylvania have reached an aggregate of more than ?3,000,W)6 In the short time the campaign has been on, and it is expected that -whea full reports from, the various committee working throughout the counties are received the figure will be found to be far in excess oC this figure. Of the $200,000.000 issue of these securities authorized by Congress, TVestern Peusylvania has been asked to take ?5S,000,000. When it is considered that the government is not j asking for a cent.'but ir. simply asking that the people invest, their money with the government a) 4 per cent interest, there should be no trouble in 1 disposing of more than the district has .been asked to take, managers of the ·campaign believe. laying thrift stamps at 25 cents each and savings stamps at ?4.13 in February, the price of the latter increasing one c^nt a month, is considered cot only the ·most profitable means d-Jvised to show one's patriotism, but it is believed that the habit of thrift that is thus acquired will he of lasting benefit to the people and to the natior. Thrift clubs are betas organized throughout the territory, in same the members agreeing to save and invest in ''Baby Bonds", 25 cents a week or a (lay. Hundred dollar dabs have been 'organized by the score, members agreeing to buy f 100 worth of savings stamps during the year. The stamps will not cost that much; that is they will be worth at maturity, January 1, 1933. The cost today is paly $1:1C, $4.14 in -March and a cent' more for j each month after that until December..] They are the only security that can · not 'depreciate in value, -because the : government has proMbf'.ed there be- i ing traded in. For that reason they! are Llways worth more today than i they were yesterday, the interest, 4 per cent compounded quarterly, growing eich day. To sustain interest in this necessary governmental work, there has been started in Western Pennsylvaa-' ia thi greatest selling force ever con- ceivet. It is proposed to have a sales- man-tfnan, woman or child--for every man enlisted from this section, and;, for jvery member of tiie non-com- ; bata.t forces behind the battle lines. · Teaoers. bankers, school children, j pccstaries or labor and other organ- ;' izaons--iu fact, anyone who-is will-. ing.o sell Thrift and Savings stamps : is ligible to enrol! in this force. ; registration may be made with the j co«ty chairman of the district cam- | pam committee, or with persons des- j igtted by them. The records will j thi be sent to Mr. Burke who in turn | w; send them to Washington, to be j peerved in the archives nf the Tres- j u.' Department. j. fhero is no obligation attached to : t's, other than the determination to j si thrift and savings stamps at every | iportunity ia order to help b r i n g ! is war to a speedy close. Everyone j ill have the same standing, from the j ttle child wh'o sells only a few dol- ! irs worth to the bankers whose sales j un into the hundreds of thousands.; j'rhe name of one will stand out just .^s prominently as tbat of others on the.
