In cold figures the war up to
August 1st will have to cost the
United States and its allies ap-
The cost of the war to the
United Ttates alone will hnve
been $21,000,000,000 on the
same date. This Government
lias been engaged in the struggle
little more than a year. V
man can say when peace
declared. The most unnlnst
military experts in theC omid
St.'ites do not look for cessation
of hostilities for at least two
years The daily cost of the
war runs into many millions.
A faint idea of the cost may be
grasped when it is considered
that the $91,000,000 which Tex-
as is called upon to save and in-
vest in United States Govern-
ment War Savings Stamps be-
fore December 31st will hold the
allied line in France a scant four-
If victory is to be achieved—
and victory is a matter of men,
money, materials and labor—
then the facilities which will as-
sure success must be at the dis-
posal of the Government.
It is through the medium of
the War Savings Campaign,
which is the basis for the entire
war-time financial program of
the coiintry, that the Federal
Government seeks to assure vic-
tory in impressing upon Ameri-
cans the necessity for economy
and war-time saving.
Men are provided by the
selective draft and the volunteer
system; but money, labor and
materials, and other essentials
of victory, are available only
through the constant and indi-
vidual practice of economic con-
servation, the principles of
which are being brought before
Americans through the medium
oí War Savings Stamps Unless
the principles of the War Saving
Campaign are followed by each
man and woman and every
child, the needs of the Govern"
ment will not be forthcoming.
Buy War Savings Stamps reg-
ularly, Meet your W. S. S.
pledge as soon as you can and
add to it. realizing all of the
time that you are doing just
what the Government Considers
necessary for the achievement
of victory and knowing that
you are placing your money in
Government bonds which ma-
ture within less than five years
from date of your investment.
Patriotism is the use of your
dollars. Patriotism is the
amount of non-essentials you
strike off of your purchase list.
Patriotism is the labor you re-
lease by not purchasing non-es
sentíais and thereby releasing
persons for the manufacture of
essentials. Patriotism is the
practice of long-headed finance
with War Savings Stamps as
Liquidate your pledge; then
add to it. The price of victory
which is in your purse should
not be invested in non-esseatials.
Put yout savings where they
belong—in War Savings Stamps.
