Folks of Washington County
Doing Your Part in
the Rubber Salvage
Campaign Will En
able This Boy—Who
Might Well Be One of
Our Boys—To Do
Hundreds oi our own flesh and blood are
now in the armed forces, and more are going
almost every day. It is estimated that almost
400 Washington County men are now in the
Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.
RUBBER is desperately needed to properly
equip them with the planes, guns, tanks and
ships they must have to defeat the Axis.
Will Washington County Go “Over
the Top” for Them?
A great nation-wide rubber salvage campaign is
underway. £.very man, woman and child, white and
colored, in Washington County is asked to take part by
helping to gather and turn in old rubber.
What you can do is very simple: Collect all the old
rubber you can hnd anywhere around your home or
farm; take it to your nearest filling station, which will
pay you 1 cent a pound for it; and this rubber will be
used to build the planes which will bomb Berlin and
LTokio. Every kind of old rubber is wanted: Old tires,
rubber raincoats, overshoes, gloves, shoe soles and
heels, bathing caps, toys, balls, or anything else made
Time is short, as this campaign closes June 30th,
when an inventory of the collection will be made- SO
DO IT NOW! If the amount of rubber turned in is large
enough, it may mean some new tires for civilian auto
mobiles; it may even help to do away with gas rationing.
Best of all, our own Washington County boys who
go into battle will be well enough equipped to meet the
German and Jap on even terms. And if the odds are
evened up, we have no fear of the result. But you must
do your part—and do it now!

Save Every Scrap of Old Rubber!
Deliver it io your nearest filling station before June 30th. Every pound will mean something to the boys who
are giving their all for us. We cannot emphasize too strongly how important it is for everyone to do his part in this
drive.' Our boys need it—the President has requested it—and your own future demands it!
