BUSINESS WEEK, October 2, 1944

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.
