    Organization of War
Loan Campaign
Is Ready
Fifty million wage earners
are expected to participate
in t)ie huge third War Loan
drive which will be conduct
ed throughout the nation for
a three-week period begin
ning September 9, according
to Clarence T. Leinbach,
Winston-Salem, State Chair
man • of the War Finance
W. D. Halfacre is Wilkes coun
ty chairman.
The gigantic drive has two ma
jor phases. Leinbach stated. One
phase is the big business and in
dustry purchase of bonds and
other government securities
through personal solicitation, and
the other phase is the volume
purchased of E. F and G bonds to
reach 50,000,000 wage earners.
At the present time there are
32,000,000 workers in the United
Sta^s on the Payroll Savings
P-lith, their combined purchases of
War Bonds totaling $400,000,000
per month. Du-ing the third War
Loan campaign it will be neces
sary for these 32.000.u00 workers
to buy War Bonds in addition to
those purchased regularly through
the Pa’Vroll Savings Plan. These
extra bonds they may purchase
with the extra money they are
earning or by setting aside a
special budget which will enable
them to buy additional bonds.
“I feel confident of the suc
cess of the third War Loan drive
as the public realizes the urgent
need for the $15,000,000,000 set
a.s goal. When we are w'inning
we cannot afford to let up." be
emphasized. “For as long as there
are men dying we cannot rfford ti'
stop buying. Once this message
is gotten across to the woge earn
ing public, that public will not
hesitate to do its full share in
putting over the third War Loan
Leinbach stated that he expects
to complete shortly his state or
ganization for the War Finance
Committee. He and W. H. .-An
drews. Jr., Greensborr, StUe Vice-
Chairman, ore now in process of
holding area meetings in each of
the 10 state areas lor purpose qf
completing the organization. He
expects very soon to have the
state quota of the $15,000,000,000
national quota which will be
broken down into county quotas.
