Sure, you remember that kid.
Well, some of these days he'll be coming back . . .
That boy who now is facing death, if he comes back,

going to know that maybe just one more heavy tank or
just one more howitzer or one more machine gun might
have won the battle and let him come through sound and
You don't want him to discover that scrap iron if he
comes back, do you?
And you don't want to see it yourself, if he doesn't
come back, do you?
Let's collect it today and eet it ready for the pickup

who's going to need all of the reinforcements he can get.
Now. Wednesday is a declared holiday in Haywood.
That means you can get out and get those pieces of scrap
together and eet them into this phase of the war effort.
Get the pieces spotted now and get them out Wednesday.
You can sleep better, knowing you have done your part
for that boy away out yonder who is under fire.

chairman, that Canton expected to gather 500,000 pounds
Wednesday, and that 16 trucks had already been volunteered.
