Those Who Will Fly the Planes
Have Chance to Purchase Them
The boys who are going to fly the planes will have an oppotrunity

Lieut. J. E. Wadsworth, USNR,

held in connection with a move

purchase bonds at a later date.

fers the same advantages to men
in service as to civilian buyers.”

Admiral Ernest J. King, Commander-in-Chief United States
Fleet and Chief of Naval Operations, says:
“You are not asked to give but merely to lend 10 percent
of your income to help us bring this war to a victorious end.
You can do it systematically and most conveniently through
the Government’s Payroll Savings Plan. I urge you to do this.”
