Overview

A black and white poster reads "Our casualty lists - Let's not get used to them - Let's STOP them - quickly! How? By rolling up an overwhelming subscription to the Fourth Liberty Loan. After four long, frightful years the tide of battle is turning! The time has come at last when MONEY MIGHT will go far toward hastening the Victory that will stop these dreadful casualty lists and bring our boys home again. Buy Liberty Bonds - to the very limit of your means! Never mind how many you have bought already - buy more, and more, and more! Don't think about the money - that will all come back to you with interest. Think about the brave young Americans who are fighting and suffering and dying Over There for you. Don't make excuses - make sacrifices! Buy U.S. government bonds Fourth Liberty Loan. Contributed through Division of Advertising. United States Gov't Comm. on Public Information.
