Coddington, Manager Iowa Defense Relocation Corporation 17'/2 East State Street Algona, Iowa A iVE MOVE closer to victory, it wouldn't be surprising if you were saying to yourself— "What's the big idea of a»king for all this,additional money now? Isn't the war almost over?" No sir, it is not! Not by a long shot. Of course, for many months now you've heard mostly about the war with Germany, where our greatest effort is concentrated. That's *rhy many people have the idea that the war's practically over. But make no mistake about it— nothing eould be farther from the truth ! The Japanese «rar is a tremendous undertaking, and victory will come high. We'll have to fight every inch of the way. '• Everything Costs More— In the Pacific War The European war is expensive, but at. most everything in the Pacific war will cost more. Take transport costs, for instance: Be- HOME LOANS WITH NO MORTGAGE RENEWAL COSTS OR WORRIES Borrow to purchase, repair or refinance your present loan.

BUY WAR BONDS HERE Algona Federal Savings & Loan Association Town Property Loans Since 1917 Algona Iowa ' """ "' " " 49tf •mount of freight costs 25 per cent more when) •hipped to the South Pacific than to Europe.' And it takes twice as many cargo ships in the Pacific to support a task force of a given size .because turn-around time is twice as great! More Planes . . .Tanks . . . Ships ... Oil In addition, we shall need more of everything. More B-29 Superfortresses that cost $600,000 each. More P-47 Thunderbolts that cost $50,000 each. More M-4 Tanks, with bulldozer blades, that cost $67,417 each. More amphibious tanks—more aircraft carriers-^more supply ships—more gasoline and oil than it took for the invasion of Europe! .Care for the Sick and Wounded And lest anyone forget, we shall need more battalion aid stations—more clearing stations — more evacuation hospitals—more convalescent hospitals—more hospital ships. For many, many years the sick, wounded, and otherwise disabled veterans will require medical attention and care. That's the least Uncle Sam can do in appreciation of what they've done for us. Maintenance for Millions Did you ever stop to think how much money it costs to maintain the 11 to 12 million men and women in our army and navy? Whether the men are actually fighting or not, they must v!?e4ed,hojised, transported from one training center or battle area to another, cared for in a hundred and one different ways. That all costs money and will continue to until the last man demobilized is back in civilian clothes. In addition, millions of dollars will be required for mustering-out pay, for various benefits and services voted by Congress to help the boys get started in civilian life. These are reasons enough why patriotic Americans will want to buy heavily during the Sixth War Loan. But here are still more- Winning the Peace—for Your Country If we're to win the peace as well as the war, the cost of living must be kept down and the purchasing power of money preserved. A reckless inflation that would necessarily be followed by the catastrophe of deflation—with its unemployment, bankruptcies, misery and heartache—must be prevented at all cost. Let's make no mistake—a dangerous period lies ahead. The American people have nothing to fear, however, if they show in the future the same common sense they have shown in tho past, and continue to put every penny over rock-bottom expenses into the purchase oi : more and more War Bonds. Winning the Peace—for Yourself Want another important reason? Yourself! There isn't a better or safer investment in the world today than War Bonds. In helping your country, you are also helping yourself! Never ' in our entire history has it been so necessary to save as right now. We'll need money, in- individually, for education, repairs, replacements, retirement—and we'll need a lot of it. As you can see there are many reasons, important reasons, why our Government must have the financial support of everyone, and have it for many months to come. Let all Americans do their part —for their own sake, for their country's. BUY AT OAST ONE EXTRA WAR BOND...TODflY! Algana Implement Co. Algona Maytag Store Dr. W. D. Andrews Algona Hardware, O. F.
