Disease ’Carrying insects - mosquitoes,
fleas, lice, ticks—have killed or disabled more
American fighting men than many a hard
fought battle.
But today, men in the tropical theaters espe

than ever before—thanks to amazing new dis

Spray DDT on a screen —and a fly that
walks on that screen three months later dies.

investment even if we never got a cent of it
back. But we will get it back and get more
money with it
Under those circumstances, War Bonds
have a mighty strong claim on every dollar
you don’t have to spend for actual necessities.
Maybe you could find enough of
those dollars to buy an extra Bond—
today.
