In this day of thankful joy and glorious triumph let us not forget the imperative duty lying immediately before us. Let us manfully, dutifully and determinedly round out the nation's splendid effort. Let us be as big in this triumphant day as our men have been heroic in the fiery din and bloody peril of battle. Buy Victory Bonds! 005?2688 46863? ;
