Nation-Wide Campaign for Scrap
According to President Koosevelt, tlie American people as individiuals
have not yet realized the seriousness of the scrap situation. He declar
ed emphatically recently that the scrap salvage drive starting through
out the nation this week should drive home to all the people the neces
sity of turning in every pieee of scrap they can find because it will
mean more planes, guns and tanks. The scrap question is a serious one.
Many mills are at the point of having to close due to the lack of scrap.
Do your part towards the war program and sell every piece of scrap
