‘‘Adding another ifztr Bond to your
collection, eh, Judge?”
‘‘Yes, Josh, I've always looked upon
buying Bonds as one of the best ways older
folks like me here at home can help our
fighting mpn overseas. For the past couple
of years I’ve put every extra cent I had
into them ... not only during" the War
Bond drives...but oa a regular basis. Gf
course, iwhen there’s a drive on j'always
to buy an extra one or two,”
‘‘We’ve done the same in our family, too,"
Judge. We figure the more we buy... the
better we equip our men ... the quicker
they’ll finish their big Job and come march-
ing home again.”
“ That's thespirit, Josh. And let’s be sure of
one more thing. Let’she sure that they come
back to the same kind of place they left. While
they are away and can’t express their opinions,
Iptfs not make any decisions on things that
are going to concern them in years to come.”
Pfc. Gilbert L. Poole left this
week after spending a month’s
furlough with Mrs. Poole. He re-
turned to Brooke General Hospi-
tal, San Antonio, where he is un-
