BUSINESS WEEK, October 2,
BANK OF OUR FOREFATHERS
Historic coin bank from an old New England collection
The early colonial was a
stickler for thrift! Saving was made a game and banks like the one
pictured here were a conspicuous
part of every household. Ingeniously constructed they were, too, for
they were made so that once the money was inside you could not take it
out unless you broke the bank . . . and woe betide the one
committing such a sin.
Thrift is playing
its same important role in today's war and the pennies, dimes, and
dollars of true Americans are shaping and powering mighty dreadnoughts,
miracle Fortresses of the air and an endless stream of other Victory
making war material. Our country is dotted with hard-hitting production
plants. . . monuments to the savings
of each of us who, day after day, is helping to make America a better, a
happier, and a safer place in which to live. . . savings that
finance the war. . . with War Bonds.
War Bonds keep
our Boys on the march . . . to Victory. Save for them. Start a
family War Bond game in your home. Pool your pennies, nickels, dimes and
dollars just as our forefathers did back in Revolutionary days. Set
aside a specified time each week or month to turn this saved-up money
into fighting War Bonds. Then, when the rainbow of Peace beautifies
America's horizon, those dream things of tomorrow can be yours . .
. they can be paid for with the War Bonds you buy today.
