Kohlhaas Hardware • • • He's an American hero. After fighting bloody battles in the Pacific, he was home on leave two years ago. • • • You may remember seeing his picture. His name is John Basilone, Marine Gunnery Sergeant. He traveled all over America, urging every American to buy more bonds. • • • He said: "You don't know— you can't know—how much it means to the boys out there when they hear the folks back home have just put another War Bond Drive over the top." • • • They gave him the Congressional Medal of Honor and offered him a commission. He didn't want it. ."I'm a plain soldier," he said. "I want to stay one." • • • Well, he stayed a plain marine —like Joe and Bill and the fellows BUy B!GG£R down the street. He can't ask you to buy bigger bonds during the Seventh. He was killed a few weeks ago on Iwo, just after he had led his assault team to the edge of an airfield we needed desperately. Kossuth's Quota Is $1,498,000 LET'S GO I I I • • • We can't let him and all our other fighting heroes down. Remember, last year we had two War Loan Drives by this time. The Seventh is our personal call to arms-^ two drives in one. That's why our quota is large. • • • We must meet it-we will meet it-for the hero of Iwp-for Victory-for pride in America. $W£HTH WAR LOAN i This advertisement sponsored by the following patriotic farmers of Kossuth County: i I T" A I f*> *~VKT A TrvitT ,\ -.-. »•». ~. -~ _ - _ T HARRY ALT .....
