Appealing Margaret C. Russell of the War Savings Staff tacks up this
new Treasury poster which will be seen from coast to coast. It pictures
retailers’ slogan, “SAY YES.” A drive is underway for Americans to buy
additional War Stamps to fill albums and convert them into War Bonds.
VX7'ASHINGTON, D. C.—The na-
» » tion’s retailers from the tiniest
hamlets to the mighty cities are act-
ing as a spearhead in a great Treas-
ury Department campaign to sell
the additional War Savings Stamps
needed to fill more than 100,000,000
albums now in the hands of the
According to a report released by
the Treasury Department today,
sales of War Savings Stamps totaled
$559,777,000 for the period from May
1, 1941, through November, IS 12.
Stamp sales have risen from less
than three million dollars per month
when they were first introduced to
the public to an average of more
than fifty million dollars per month
at the present time.
The Treasury’s slogan, “A half-
filled album is like a half-equippec
soldier,” has been adopted officially
by retailers for the campaign.
The importance of the drive is
seen in the fact that a War Bond po-
tential of nearly two billion dollars
hangs in the balance.
Every War Stamp album, con-
verted into a People's Bond, for
which the purchaser pays $18.75 and
which matures to $25.00 value when
held for 10 years, adds its force to
the war effort.
| visit to the Orient and the na-
val officer insisted that the Ma-
rine’s body be buried somewhere
near the fleet’s anchorage. The
Japanese, however, considered
the request to be a sacrilege.
Japanese officials demanded
that the body of private Wil-
j liams be buried somewhere near
Nagasaki, an area restricted to
the burial of foreigners. But
Perry objected, reminding the
Orientals that undisturbed rest-
; ing places for the dead were
granted by all nations. Finally
the Japanese agreed to forego
their arbitrary rule and provid-
ed a suitable burial spot.
Fifes and muffled drums play-
ed a subdued requiem as the
Marine’s body was borne by
four comrades to a selected site
in the shadow of a hillside
shrine. Christian services were
read and Marines fired three
volleys over the grave, the en-
tire service being conducted
The Treasury Department is
counting upon the country’s school
children to play a powerful role in ...
the success cf the SAY YES drive. I Wlth an Ampressive solemnity.
The volume cf stamp and bond sales j
is fit the rate of S?^.009,000 for the j
current school y ear. j

Chronic bronchitis may develop If
your cough, chest cold, or acute bron-
chitis is not treated and you cannot
afford to take a chance with any medi-
cine less potent than Creomulsion
which goes right to the seat of the
trouble to help loosen and expel gent
laden phlegm and aid nature to
soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed,
bronchial mucous membranes.
Creomulsion blends beechwood
creosote by special process with other
time tested medicines for coughs.
It contains no narcotics. *-
No matter how many medicines
you have tried, tell your druggist to
sell you a bottle of Creomulsion with,
the understanding you must like the
way it quickly allays the cough, per-
mitting rest and sleep, or you are to
have your money back. (Adv.)
