T HE Government will issue during all of 1918
what will be known as U. S. THRIFT
STAMPS. These stamps will be on sale at
postoffices, banks, stores, factories and many other
convenient places. A single stamp wil be sold for
25 CENTS.
When you buy your first stamp you will be
given a Thrift Card with spaces for affixing sixteen
stamps. This card will show at all times just how
much money you have loaned the Government.
As soon as you have sixteen stamps on your
card-$4.00 WORTH-you can take them to any
place where U. S. Thrift Stamps are sold and there
exchange them with a small cash payment for a
"WAR-SAVINGS STAMP" that will pay you 4
per cent interest.
What is a War-Savings Stamp? When affixed
to a War-Savings Certificate, IT IS AN OBLIGA
TION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT

Now let's see how Thrift Stamps are changed
into War-Savings Stamps.
Suppose you have a card full of Thrift Stamps
-$4.00 worth-and want to turn them into a War
Savings Stamp in December, 1917. All you have
to do is to put TWELVE CENTS with your card
and take it to any place where U. S. Thrift and
War-Savings Stamps are sold. There it will be ex- kV
changed for h FIVE DOLLAR War-Savings Stamp, 1
which will put you in the investor class.
If you exchange U. S. Thrift Stamps for War
Savings Stamps in February, 1918, you will be
asked to pay THIRTEEN CENTS in addition to
your stamps. In March, it will be FOURTEEN
CENTS; and so on a cent a month up to December,
1918, when the added amount will be TWENTY
THREE CENTS. The sooner you buy the less the
cost.
