is backed by the faith and honor of
the United States and by the taxing
power of this country, which is the
richest nation in the world.
1. Why does the United States
borrow this money?
2. To pay expenses of the war.

Liberty Bonds, now held by more

To The Boys and Girls
With the coming of Spring comes
better opportunities for boys and
girls to earn Thrift Stamps for their
Thrift Cards. The yards have been
more or less neglected during the
real cold weather. The leaves need
to be raked and burned, pot plants
need repotting, garden plots need
spading. Windows and paint need
scrubbing—in fact dozens of jobs
will present themselves to the am
bitious boy or girl who is eager to
earn the stamps.
The Civic League of Patterson is
giving the children a splendid oppor
tunity of earning Thrift Stamps by
having them assist in the clean-up
campaign planned for February. No
doubt clubs in other towns will use
this or similar means to help the
young folks earn Thrift Stamps. Ev
ery quarter earned and spent for a
stamp is a silent but mighty power
against an arrogant Monarch who
threatens to sh ?kle the world in
slavery. Wake p your minds boys
and girls to look for ways and means
to earn quart*v and save those
quarters by investing in Thrift
Stamps. Fill your Thrift Cards as
rapidly as possible then convert
them into War Savings Stamps.
They are such substantial possessions
and aside from what they mean to
you as a business investment, you
have the satisfaction of knowing
that you are serving our Country—
are actually a part of the fight for
Freedom, Liberty and Peace, the
Trinity of Democracy, whose very
righteousness is bound to overcome
Satan's twin—the Kaiser.
