ONE WAY TO STOP U-BOATS
This little lady was a blonde and
weighed only 105 pounds, and clerkcl
m a department store for $12 a week.
She had never been to Chicaeo. vet
she sank a German U-boat Is that
fighting? You bet it is.
Her name is Lilly Frill. She sell
laces m a small city department sto
less than 6no miles from Chicago- C
naa never Leei to Chicago. It took iio
much money. Her beau, one of tta
boys in thfc store, marched away to

course. She missed her beau. Any
girl would weep.
But Lilly didn't weep long. She lai l
aside tears and began to fight. She
fought right there in her little home
town. She began to sell War Savings
Stamps along with laces and neckwear
and things. She had read that one
depth bomb would shatter the biggest
U-boat afioat, and she knew the U
boats were lurking for the transport
that carried her beau overseas. She
asked someone how much it took to
manufacture c depth bomb and when
she found out she took the amount as
her share of the fighting and started
out to sell War Savinirs StamDs un ta
that amount r.t least.
"-Money'Il stop those pirates." Lillv
said to herself, "and I'm going to ston
one. I am goiiiji to sell a Thrift St.in
or a War Savings Stamp to every cus
tomer who comes my way."
Lilly l rill did it. She's doing it y
a little girl, blonde and slender and
not so very pretty. Think it over a
moment, Mr. Merchant! How many
Lilly Friils Lave you got in your store.
Help them to sell stamps to get money
to crush the German army and the
