Don't be a QUITTER
-YOUR SHARE OF W. 8. S. IS UP TO YOU.
-The nation has left your W. S. S. quota to your consience-to your
sense of duty-to your appreciation of the inspiring heroism of
Amerlca's valiant soldiers and those of our Allies.
-The graves of millions of Allied soldiers who, in their sublime and
unfaltering devotion to humanity, offered their lives for your liberty,
mutely tell you what your share of W. S. S. must be. Precious
American lives have been sacrificed and blood spilt; thousands of Amer.
ilan youths suffer from fearful wounds and hardships. And now, to
insure the fruits of their costly victories, we are asked to lend our
money to the government.
--It will require huge sums of money to .maintain our armed forces
until their work is done, until we know that our heroic dead have not
died in vain; and it will require further huge sums to bring back our
splendid armies whose valor and strength crumpled to the dust the
armed forces of autocracy. Let us express our thanks, prove our
appreciation, and demonstrate our sincerity by responding without
stint to the government's appeals for funds to finish America's great
If, by avoiding extravagance and by saving you can
afford only $20 worth of War Savings Stamps-that is
your quota. If you can afford only $100 worth, then that
is your quota. And if, by saving and economy, you can
purchase $1,000 worth of W. S. S.-an investment of $846
-then that, and not a cent less, is your quota.

These lie scattered all over the

from permanent ruin. May I not say
a special word about the needs of

Many of their factories are razed
to the ground. Much of their ma

many of their best workmen are dead.
Their markets will be taken by others

assisted to rebuild their factories and
replace their lost instruments of man

the vicissitudes of the sharp compe
