REACHING QUOTA JOB FOR EVERYBODY--
Wilkes has gone over the top in every previous cam
paign for the all-put war effort and cannot afford to fail
to meet the quota set in this campaign.
While the quota is large, it can be reached if every man,
woman and child in the county will invest their idle dol
lars in war bonds. In so, domg they will not be giving,
they will be investing, their money in the safest securities
known and at good interest rates.
Raining the quota will mean
insuring the quickest possible
end to the war and complete and
