TO BE CONT1NLU) WISE PATRIOTISM Everybody knows that patriotism is the highest virtue. Without patriotism life is an empty meaningless waste. The highest form of patriotism in these days is, of course, doing everything possibk to co-operate with the Government in its one great task rtf winning the war and making the world safe for democracy. This means buying LIBERTY BONDS and buying them NOW. Remember that when you buy LIBERTY BONDS you are not only being patriotic, but you are also being wise because you are buying the very finest kind of an investment--United States Government Bonds that pay liberal interest and are guaranteed by die richest nation in the world.
