Ybur Counfry War Fund is anofrher "Vicfrory weapon."
The United War Chest of Texas through war fund
organizations in every county of the state is charged with
the responsibility of ‘raising $4,885,781.00 for the 17
approved war appeals of the National War Fund. The
national goal is $125,000,000.
Each of the 17 participating agencies was carefully
budgeted to stretch every dollar contributed before it
received the approval of the President’s War Relief
Control Board. ,
Texans now are being asked to take a Texan’s share
in their Comity War Funds to aid three fronts with one
gift—the Military Front, the United Nations Front, and
the Home Front. Remember, President Roosevelt has
said that a share in the National War Fund is a share in
winning the war. Use this “Victory weapon.” Give to your
County War Fund.
