To the People of this Community YOU ARE IMPORTANT There is no such thing as a "little" investment in theFourth War Loan. Your $25 or $50 or $100 Extra War Bond may not have great !mportanee m your mind in making up a 5 billion dollar total for individu- als. But multi- ply yourself by 130,000,000 and then you see in real perspective how truly great each citlzen becomes in massing national strength against the Nazis and the Japs. Capt. Maurice Witherspoon, Navy chaplain aboard the Car- rier Wasp when she sank, tells of a rescued wounded sailor. who, as he regained conscious- ness, asked: "Did I do my best?" That's the only question you, too, have to ask yourself when you decide the extent of your ~ersonal participation in the ourth War Loan. There undoubtedly will be large single purchases of War Bonds in this community, but yours--if it is "your best" will deserve equally the red. white and blue shield you are privi- leged to display in the window of your home.
