SAVINGS
The War Savings Plan is a plan by which you invest your small savings
with the United States Government. You do it by buying War Savings
Stamps and Thrift Stamps. A War Savings Stamp costs $4.12 if bought
during December, 1917, or January, 1918. After that it will cost one cent
more each month during 1918; February, $4. 13; March, $4. 14; and soon. The
one cent advance each month is to allow for the interest the stamp earns.
These stamps as bought are pasted in a
War Savings Certificate, which is a folder
with 20 spaces for the stamps. When these
20 spaces are filled put the Certificate away;
it is worth $100, payable January 1, 1923.
Then start another.
U. S. Thrift Stamps are for investors who
want to save but find the War Savings Stamp
more than they can spare at one time. The
U. S. Thrift Stamp costs 25 cents; you get a
Thrift Card from the postoffice, or bank, or
other authorized agency; no charge for the
card. There are 16 spaces on this card; a
place for each 25-cent U.S. Thrift Stamp you
buv. Sixteen of them make $4.00. When
the card is full take it to the postoffice, or
unfry Worth
liti
for
bank, or other agency and get a War Savings
Stamp; you'll pay the difference, 12 cents in
' December and January and one cent more
each month during 1918. Paste the War
Savings Stamp on the Certificate Card you
get with it, and start a new 25-cent Thrift
Card. The U. S. Thrift Stamps do not bear
interest; the War Savings Stamps do 4 per
cent, compounded every three months. The
interest is in the convenient form of a
monthly increase in the face value of the
stamp. The stamps are redeemable at their
full value, $5, on January 1, 1923.
li you need to draw out the money you have saved don't
do it if you don't have to go to the postoffice and they will
tell you what to do, and what the exact value of your invest
ment is on that date, and give you the money.
