DON'T LET THE BOYS DOWN
The immortal Fifth Army of the United States
is engaged now in a death grapple with the Ger
mans in Southern Italy.
Commingled with our gallant forces are many j
| North Carolinians and possibly quite a number
of our Stokes county boys. '
I They are making a record of heroism that will
be read with pride and enthusiasm in the future 1
pages of history.
Can we afford to let these boys down that they
may not be equipped and armed and fed to en
jable them to fight on to victory?
Can we afford to let these noble boys, who are
making the great sacrifice, know that Stokes
'county did not do her part in the great Victory
We cannot —we will not fail.
Our armies need planes and more plane?, tanks,
bombs, ships and food. With these they will
! Every person in Stokes county should do his or
her part by buying all the bonds they can pay
It does not mean giving, but' LENDING to the
It is the safest investment in the world today, j
and the most attractive buy.
Do you know what will happen if the nation
fails to raise the Third War Loan?
I It will mean that the Government must resort to
! issuing new money, which means INFLATION
Inflation means for instance, $25.00 for a pair
,of shoes, $5.00 for a pound of meat, $200.00 for
a suit of clothes, etc.
Lend your money to the Government and
while keeping down inflation, you help the boys
