' iU H CAROLNAS
South Carolina has at last reached the million dollar mark in the
sales of War Savings Stamps. This figure was reached about May 1.
It marks an important stage of the War Savings campaign in this state,
and the 'South Carolina War Savings Committee feels that now is the
time when the people of this state should become deeply impressed with
the magnitude of the War Savings problem that confronts South Carolina.
In the Third Liberty Loan, South Carolina's quota was nearly
$15,000,000, of the national quota of three billions of dollars. IN THE
WAR SAVINGS CAMPAIGN THE NATIONAL QUOTA IS TWO BIL
LION DOLLARS, AND YET THIS STATE MUST RAISE $32,000,000
twice the amount allotted in the Liberty Loan. The Liberty Loan quota
was based on the state's bank resources; the War Savings quota Is based
on the population, and during the year an average of $20 for each indi
vidual is expected to be invested in War Savings Stamps. When it is
realized that no one individual can invest in over $1,000 worth, the magni
tude of the campaign becomes evident. For the state to succeed, it
means that practically every man, woman, and child must save during the
year, and lend the savings to the Government.
F1our months have passed and South Carolina has purchased only one
million dollars' worth of the stamps-only one thirty-second of the
state's quota. Unless South ('arolina purchases an average of four ml
lion dollars' worth momlily during tho remaining months of the year, the
c:tmpaign will fail--anl Soul Ii (arolina will be branded as a slacker
state. South Caiolina, which has freely given its men, will be known as
a state which failed to lend money at good interest to hack up those
fighting men, who are leaving for the hattle front with the confident
assurance that the home people will stand by them. Lot us savo for
them, so that their confidence will be justified.
We know that the people of this state can save thirty-two million
dollars and lend it to the Government. We know they want to. We
bolievo they will-but not unless every man, woman, and child saves
regularly, often, and conscientiously, and invests the money saved in War
Savings Stamps, which hear interest at the rate of 4 per cent, per annum,
compounded quarterly. Our people must practice thrift-must dispense
with the lavish purchase of non-essentials and lend the money instead to
the government. That means saving for victory, for humanity, for every
thing that we hold (lear.
Signs are encouraging. The first million dollars' worth of stamps
have been sold, half of which were sold within the last six weeks. Dur
ing the past two months the weekly sales have been increasing substan
tially, and this increase must continue. Those who have not started sav
ing in this way should start without delay, while others should add con
stantly to their war savings certificates. The Government of the United
States relies on the War Savings movement as one of the most powerful
weapons It can wield against Germany, and South Carolina must help
build the weapon. You are not asked to GIVE-merely to LEND--lend
at liberal interest and on the strongest security the world knows.
Don't let South Carolina bo known as a slacker state. Buy, Think,
and Talk Var Savings Stamps-invest in them to the limit of your
resources, It is a duty that only slackers
will evade. Since as little as 25c can start
a person buying war Savings Stamps, there
can be no excuse for any loyal American
not investing. Save-save for victory, for 1 $ G$$11ig
America, for South Carolina, for yourself, UMtW mTA>h
for all that free people hold dear. 09.t1Kk(MENT
