All of us can thank the neighborhood business man for doing a whale of a wartime job. Short of help and with many empty shelves, he has striven to give each family its fair share. He has labored late and often over ration records and changes in regulations. He has been co-operat ive and uncomplaining. Remembering those away from the homes of the families he serves, he keeps on buying War Bonds—for keeps.
Your dealer has had plenty of company in all walks of life ...
people who have pulled together in a great awakening of the traditional American spirit. They have amazed themselves and the world with their ingenuity. They have found security in self-reliance. They have vowed not to slacken their pace until complete victory is ours.
No less important, they are resolved to apply their new-found ability to t-he utmost when peace comes to make ours an even better country for those who have defended it so gallantly.
Americans have always been neighborly. It is quite natural then for Budweiser to ba America’s favorite beer — for, tthen good friends get together, Budweiser is a friend that needs no introduction.
