'[ iierc's a day coming when the enemy will be licked, beaten, whipped to a fare-thee-well — every last vestige of fight knocked out of him. And there's a day coming when every mother's son of us will want to stand up and yell, to cheer ourselves hoarse over the greatest victory in history. But let's not start the cheering yet. In fact, let's not start it at all-over here. Let's leave it to the fellows who are doing the job—the only fellows who will know when it's done—to begin the celebrating. Our leaders have told us over and over again that the smashing of the Axis will be a slow job, a dangerous job, a bloody job. And they've told us what our own common sense confirms: that if we at home start throwing our hats in the air and easing' up before the job's completely done, it will be slower, more dangerous, . bloodier. Right now, it's still up to us to buy War Bonds —and to A-eep on buying War Bonds. Let's do that. Let's keep bearing down till we get the news of final victory from the .only place such news can come: the battle-line. If we do that, we'll have the right to join t 1 " cheering when the time comes. your Invasion Bonds Tod This Advertisement is a Contribution Toward America's All-Out War Effort bv The NAUGATUCK DAILY NEWS
