BUY A BOND — buy all you can afford. Buying bonds saves lives — the lives of young men — your own son, brother, husband or sweetheart — who are grappling with the foulest, trickiest foe in history, that you may live in freedom, peace and contentment.

YOU OWE IT TO THESE YOUNG MEN, to your country, your freedom, your own self-respect, to lend your savings to humanity’s cause.
