on the curtailed list.
The salesman's approach is some-
thing like this, "No Madam, we have-
n't any refrigerators today, but how
about a nice fur coat?" Or "Sorry,
no chore vacuum cleaners, but we
have plenty of diamond rings."
The women are happily stocking
up on furs, jewelry, paintings, china,
silverware, fine furniture.
Julius Green. a director of the As-
sociated Fur Coat and Trimming
Manufacturers, Inc., says the industry
is confident that next winter will be
the biggest fur season in history.
Catering to the masses, the fur
industry is "trading down," Green
said, offering practical furs such as
muskrat, opossum, wolf, beaver, in
economical designs suitable for day
and evening wear.
Even mink is being made with
fewer skins to retail at an unpreced-
ented low of about $895-this to
interest the well-to-do woman who
won't be getting a new car this year.

completed tomorrow may, in a few months,
turn the tide onsome distant battlefield; it may
make the difference between life and death for
some of our fighting men."
February 23, 1942.
Would you be the one who failed to help buy that
plane, tank, or ship-by failing to buy your shae 6f
Bonds? Could you sleep nights knowing that Ameri-
can boys were being killed because you and others
"put off" doing your part?
Remember, they are OUR boys now-from your
State, your town, perhaps your very home. They're
out there risking their lives-giving their lives-so
that America, your free America, can live. And just
as you are counting upon them to give everything
they've got, so they are counting upon you to give
everything you've got-by working harder than
you ever have before and by investing in Bonds to the
very limit of your powers!
Can they count on you? Make your answer ring clear
and true-let our boys know that every man, woman,
and child in America is behind them 100%! Go to
your local post office, bank, savings and loan associa-
tion, or other official sales agency today. Pledge
yourself to buy all the Bonds you can-regularly,
every pay day until this war is won! The more Bonds
you buy, the more planes will fly.
