Your boy comes stumbling out of the battle-line
He wants a place to rest, a place to get warm, a place to smoke and get a hot drink and hear some
body talk United States.
lie sees a light ahead. It s a hut!
Do you think he cares whether that hut is run by the Knights of Columbus or theY. M. C. A., Jewish
Welfare Hoard or the Salvation Army? Not much! He knows what he wants and he knows that he'll
get it—whatever uniform the folks inside happen to be wearing.
Your boy knows what real democracy means.
He's fighting to make it something bigger and better and finer than it ever was before. He's the
world's greatest authority on democracy today. Take his word for it!

Keep the hut fires
burning!

Why you should give twice as much
as you ever gave before!
»

The need of asking for a sum 70 per cent greater than any gift §
ever asked for since the world began.The Government has fixed this I
sum at $170,500,000.
A hut is your fighter's home over there. It is his
store, his theatre, his church his school and his club.
It is the place where he writes your letters.
It is the place where he reads his books and maga
B zines, where he and his friends get around a piano and
w sing or listen to a phonograph.
It is the place where all the movies are given, and the
concerts and the minstrel shows and vaudeville. Often
i it is the only place within reach that is dry and light and
§ warm and clean.
H
■ A hut may be a shed or tent or a line old chateau or
1 a hotel. Sometimes, at the front, it's just a battered lit
tle shack—the only building left standing in town.
On the lighting line, it's just a board laid across two
boxes with a sign nailed to a tree.
The sign doesn't matter—it's what the hut gives your
fighter.
Back up these seven organizations without thought of race or creed, because your boy knows that he
is always welcome everywhere, and he needs them all.

By giving to these seven organizations all at once, the cost and ef
fort of six additional campaigns is saved.
Unless Americans do give twice as much as ever before, our sol
diers and sailors may not enjoy during 1919 their:

When you give double, you make sure that every fighter has the
cheer and comforts of these seven organizations every step of the way
from home to the front and back again..... You provide him with a
church, a theatre, a cheerful home, a store, a school, a club and an ath
letic field
and a knowledge that the folks back home are with him,
heart and soul!
You have loaned your money to supply their physical needs.
Now give to maintain the Morale that has won the war!
