What good will money do if wo don't win this war? What
good will our homes be? Or our Government or our lives1
You know the answer; We've got to win the war and we're
going to. We've got to supply Uncle Sam with the money
needed to feed and clothe our army and we're going to.
We're going to put a good many million dollars into Uncle
Sam's war chest by buying THRIFT STAMPS AND WAR
SAVINGS STAMPS. Anybody with 25 CENxS can help
win the war by buying a U. S. Thrift Stamp. The Govern
ment gets the money at once. Tho purchaser of the Thrift
Stamp gets a Thrift Card bearinir his name and spaces for
tho pasting of 10 Thrift Stamps.
When the card is filled with Stamps ($4 worth) it may be
exchanged with a low cents addition for a WAR SAVING
A War-Sayihgs Stamp is an interestbearing government
security. It may bo obtained in enchange for Thrift Stamps
or purchased for cash. Tho price of' a War-Savings Stamp
is $4.13 in February and ono cent will bo added each month
With every War-Savings Stamp thero is issued a War-Sa
ings Certificate bearing the holder's name and with spaces
for pasting 20 War Savings Stamps. This certificate may be
registered if desired insuring it against loss.
Uncle Sam will pay $5.00 in cash on Jan. 1 1923 for every
far-Savings Stamp. This means that the stamps draw in
terest at 4 per cent compounded quarterly. In case the
stamps are "cashed in" before Jan. 1 1923 -which may be
done if tho holder desires the interest paid will be at a
slightly lower rate.
Invest today in War-Savings Stamps or Thrift Stamp'
They aro as safe as government bonds and Undo Srim will
get your money without a moment's delay for the greatest
need this country has over known.
War-Savings Stamps and Thrift Stamps are on aalo at all
postoffices by letter carriers and at all banks.
