DON'T SELL YOUR LIBERTY BONDS
TO HOLD THEM IS PATRIOTIC,
TO KEEP THEM IS WISE
The wide distribution among millions of American
citizens of Liberty loan bonds makes our Liberty
loans, according to Secretary of the Treasury Mc
Adoo's expressed opinion, the soundest of national
financing. That these bonds be kept widely dis
tributed amongst the American people is of great
importance to the nation and to the individual
holders of the bonds.
United States Government bonces in the past have
gone above par, as high as $139 for a $100 four
per cent bond. That Liberty bonds will go well
above par when peace comes is very probable. Hold
ing one's Liberty bonds, therefore, is wise as well
Every holder of a Liberty loan bond should heed
the caution to hold to his or her bonds, because
there are going to be great efforts by shrewd and
unscrupulous people to buy or secure at inadequate
prices these bonds from holders who are not well
informed as to stock and bond values.
Worthless or near-worthless stock or stock of
only speculative value"wildcat stocks" they are
calledare going to be offered for Liberty bonds.
Some will be urged not to sell or exchange their
^Liberty bonds, but to buy the stock and give the
Liberty bonds as security for the purchase price.
This is a camouflaged attempt to get Liberty bonds
in exchange for the stock of their companies.
If every holder of a Xiberty bond will consult
a bank before he disposes of it, the git-rich-quick
concerns will not prosper, but the individual bond
holders will, and the American people as a whole
will be benefited.
