Eyery flovsrlcan V Duty.
- To wolFk, economize, and lend
monev to the Government is the
duty of every American.
Hundreds of thousands of our
men have been called to arms
and taken away from productive
forces of the country.
Hundreds of tlinusands :, of
others have been diverted from
producing things, used in peace
to produce thin ga. used in war -
In the face of tht lessened pro
ducttve force and" production a
great and unusual drain upon
our resources is made by our
Array and Navy and our Allies.
Work and sp'eedup production
to mike up for the lessened pro
duction; economize in consump
tion to lessen as much as possible
the drain upon our .. resources;
lend your money to your Oovern

powerful, effective and victori
