A Special Appeal To Haywood People
Now Living In Other Sections of Country
There are hundreds of people working in defense plants, and
other places, that still look on Haywood County as home. The people
back here in Haywood would not have it otherwise.
The reputation of the county as being patriotic in every war
effort is known far and wide.
To date, the county has met every quota for the purchase of
bonds since the treasury department started setting monthly quotas.
Needless to say, some months has seen the race mighty close.
The Haywood people' away are just as patriotic as those at home,
and it is known that they are buying bonds. What the bond sales
committee here wants, is for Haywood to get credit for some of
those bonds you're buying. It will help Haywood's standing, and give
a better showing.
Any selling agency in the county will gladly handle this for you.
Several are buying them regularly now by mail. Why not join the
group, and help keep Haywood's splendid record among the top of
