Any store or bank or other "issuing agent" can take your money and immediately deliver your bond made out to you. You pay $18.75 for a bond you can cash in for $25 in ten years. A $50 bond is $37.50, a $100 bond is $75. The bigger the bond the less it costs the government and you in bookkeeping. If you need your money in less than 10 years, you can get it any time—with earned interest. Buy a big bond today to start this $15,000,000,000 loan off with a bang! And for your future! The War Is Not Won Our armed forces have a continuous fighting job, And so it is with buying bonds. Buying bonds is a continuing responsibility for everyone who can scrape the price of a bond together at any time. You should buy bonds every month, or every week, if you can. Money you lend for bonds goes into the war at once, keeps out of consumer markets, and therefore helps fight inflation. Bond money is double duty money—fighting trie war on foreign fronts and inflation on the home front Keep buying bonds, *Jn this $15,000,000,000 Third War Loan Drive, which starts today, America's army of 5,000,000 retail-employees is drafted to seek put America's loafini? dollars and get them into fighting bonds, Ow job is selHitg bonds, to help you do yours, which is buying them. We're buying them, too,' Let's be proud of ourselves through bonds and sweat. Meet us halfway and start buying today , , , will, you please? How didyou fare at your job today? Pushed by work and trouble-pressed by prices? Too few ration points and little gas? Your lot is bonds and sweat. __^ There's a kid Marine over there ... =J Panting his heart out in' the thick wet |= jungle heat, == Watching life run from him in a lazy =3 ooze— BE HIS lot is blood and tears. ff| ''Blast such dumb help anyway—they burn you H up." .
