NORTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY Back the Attack with War Bonds PIIIIHIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII^ wm bonds today until you have really sacrificed and you know it In Los Angeles—after he had given his blood They found out he was a Marine furloughed back from war. "I thought I was dead—but plasma saved me," he said, "And I came in to pay back the blood I received." And what have you and I been through for the war? \Vorked a little harder? Given hours and effort? The pleats off oar pants? Extra butter? Some driving? Tin cans, some sugar and junk—loaned some money? The slender artist—she lost her fiance the day his wings In the RCAF were to be panned on his breast. And then en route from camp to that funeral ' * Her younger brother crashed and died—only man in the family. And what have YOU suffered or sacrificed? Prompt laundry service, a juicy steak, can openers, A few lost leisure hours in some war work, Some frills on food and maybe some drinks. His dad was a big shot and he could have stayed home Holding down an office job—some sinecure— But he fought, for he wanted to play his full part. He's home now—having left both his legs in a foreign desert. Yon aren't asked to lose your legs, Or be mortally wounded and then give blood. Yon aren't asked to puff out your life in a crash— t You're asked to sacrifice some things around you So you can lend more money . . . not GIVE it. . .
