S. "Baby Bonds." These Bonds later became the United States Wai- Bonds you buy today. In March, 1945, this month, these thousand:; of Americans will receive a total of over $36,000,000 the full maturity value of those Bonds, People of foresight, these thousands of Americans. People who can recognize the best bargain in the world, too... one which pays back $4 for every $3 they invested in these Bonds. But above all, people with great common sense, who realized that in order to reap the fullest harvest from their investment, they must wait until their Bonds matured before cashing them in. . They realized that to cash' them in before their time was like throwing money away-money that was coining to them if they held on to their investment. That's something for you to think about whenever .you are sorely tempted to cash in one of your Bonds before maturity date. You reduce the size of that fat nest egg which will play a big part in your future. So, when you buy your Bonds, stick 'em away in a safe place... and forget about 'em until their time has come.
