Our daughter has a hope chest... in an envelope
"When our little girl's great day comes—and it may not be more
than 10 years off—she's going to have all the things a girl dreams
"Bright-flowered luncheon sets and fine Irish linen . . . satin-
smooth percale sheets and soft fluffy bath towels . . . and lovely
lace-edged lingerie . . .
"A setting-out like that will cost at least $400 . . .
"We'll only pay $300. Because, you see, we're buying War Bonds
for her. And for every $3 worth we buy we get $4 back in 10 years.
"So every single month we buy a $25 War Bond which costs us
"And there's something else you can't help but think about when
you buy War Bonds. We're doing more than saving money and
making a good investment for the future. We're buying the guns
and planes and tanks to defend our home. If we don't help our
country now to defend our little girl's future, she won't have any
future. Except a short and terrible life of slavery to a Jap or Nazi
This little girl's father is putting every spare cent of cash into
War Bonds, through the Pay-Roll Savings Plan. So are the great
majority of Americans.
But there are still some Americans who ought to be buying War
Bonds through the Pay-Roll Savings Plan . . . and aren't.
Others are in, but haven't hit their 10 percent yet. Some could
stretch it to 12 percent or 15 percent, just as thousands of other
hard-working people are doing.
Everybody — Every Pay Day — 10 Percent or More
Uncle Sam hopes that every person on a pay roll will be in the
Pay-Roll Savings Plan by New Year's. And that we'll top the 10
percent goal. YES, TOP IT . . . because we know now it's going to
take MORE THAN 10 PERCENT TO WIN.
Your comforts and your fun must wait. Your Bonds will buy them
all some day . . . more of them than you can ever buy now.
If you are in, be sure you're putting not 6 percent or 7 percent or
8 percent, but at least 10 PERCENT into War Bonds every pay
If you AREN'T in the Pay-Roll Savings Plan . . . sign up tomor-
row . . .
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
If you are . . .
1. Already setting aside 10 percent of your pay for War Bonds
through the Pay-Roll Savings Plan -boost that 10 percent if
2. Working in a plant where the Plan is installed, but haven't
signed up yet—sign up tomorrow.
:>. Working in a plant where the Pay-Roll Savings Plan hasn't been
installed, talk to your union head, foreman, or plant manager,
and see if it can't be installed right away. The local bank will be
glad to help.
4. Unable to get in on the Pay-Roll Savings Plan for any reason, go
to see your local bank, or other issuing agent. They will be glad
to help you start a plan of your own.
