Some $75 billion dollars in Savings Bonds have already been invested in all these things — education, homes, retirement, and so on.

Rabies season occurs During early months Spring is the rabies season in Iowa, contrary to the popular belief that this serious disease of dogs is a threat only during the "dog days" of August, the Iowa Veterinary Medical Association Although rabies occurs during every month of the year in Iowa, more cases are reported in the spring than in any other season, the IVMA said. This apparently is becaujse animals travel around more during the mating season, resulting in a greater spread of the disease. The IVMA pointed out that since dogs live in such close association with man and are cap- ANNIVERSARY J _ 1961 Twentieth anniversary for Government savings bonds There are anniversaries which serve to date one. That is, for example, the "E" savings bond. In May . f l.WJ it will bo 20 years old. The first one was sold to Franklin D. Roosevelt on May 1, I!M1, and Mr. Roosevelt explained in his always understandable semantics that they were savings bonds which permitted every American to help in's country prepare against possible aggression. The smallest bond was S25 at maturity. It could be purchased for $18.75. There were $50 and S100 bonds. After that they climbed. There were bonds at $200, $500, §1000 and $10,000. But by and large, it was the first three which the average American took to his frugal heart. Jfst as Mr. Roosevelt had said, it was possible for every citizen to buy savings bonds and help himself and h i s country. There was not then much lb-tight they would help pay for a war. Thai was the last year of innocence Until Dec. 7, 1941, a number of persons insisted the most powerful nation in the world could remain out of the vast world conflict between two basic ideologies. There were others who knew that no matter how much such a nation sought to remain neutral, it could not. Its very size and power made it necessary for it to be engaged, SV> long as the major force was uncommitted the German-Japanese allies could not win a total victory. So, in December a desperate Japanese attack, skillfully and diabolically prepared and executed, brought us precipitately into the war with most of our Pacific sea power sunk or burning in Pearl Harbor. The "E" Bonds became even more important. Every American omld help his country win a war. Sales were a billion dollars in the eight months after May 1941, when we were helping to pay for possible aggression. In the first war year, Americans bought almost six billion dollars worth. By 1944 the buyers of small bonds put more than 12 billion dollars into them. Financial experts thought that when war ended demand for the bonds alro would stop. But Americans had learned something. The "E" Bond was the easiest way to thrift ever devised. Business and banking had cooperated. The payroll savings plan was painless.
