FOUR YEARS AGO, |[aU$ WAS IN OUR SHOES H ANS is a German. Four years ago, lie felt the way many of us feel today. He-thought the war was v.s good as won. He hnd reason to think so. Far more reason than we • have. .France was his. England was bloody aflc-r Dunkerque. The German Army seemed invincible. But the war wasn't almost over. And now it is our armies that a re'on tlie-jnarch. It is our bombers blasting German'cities. Victory is in our grasp. It's up to us to. see that we don't let it slip through our fingers flic way Hans did. . Most of us know that this is the military crisis of .this war—the time when our fighting men must give everything they have, not once in a while but hour after how—day'after day; * - But this alone is not enough. The lives of brave men arc not enough. Money is needed too. For this is the financial crisis of the wnr just as surely ns it is the military crisis. Millions of dollars' worth of equipment is being destroyed. The money to replace it must conic from us, quickly. If every last one of us here nt hone will try to match the constant, day-to-day drive of the men' who fight our battles, we'll raise that money. The way to do it is to put every cent we can possibly invest into D.S. War Bonds. Not some of us. All of KS. Not once in a while during a drive, but regularly.
