1918 what is known as U. I tint z
Siamps. These stamps are on sale at
postotFices, banks, stores, factories and
many other convenient places. A single
stamp is cold for 25 cents.
When you buy your first stamp you will be given a Thrift
Card with spaces for affixing sixteen stamps. 1 his card will
show at all times just how much money you have loaned the

worth you can take them to any place where U. S. 1 hnit
Stamps are sold and there exchange them with a small cash
payment for a "V7ar Savings St amp" that will pay you 4
per cent interest.
What is a Yar-Savings Stamp? When affixed to a War
Savings Certificate, if is an obligation of the United States
Government to pay the holder $5.00 on January 1,1023.
All the wealth and security of the United States are behind
it. It is as good as a Government bond, which is the safest
investment in the world.
Now let's see how Thrift Stamps are changed into War
Supnose you have a card full of Thrift Stamps $4.00 worth
and want to turn them into a War-Savings Stamp in March.
All you have to do is to put fourteen cents with your card
and take it to any place where U. S. Thrift and War-Savings
Stamps are sold. There it will be exchanged for a Five Dollar
War Savings Stamp, which will put you in the investor class.
If vou exchange U. S. Thrift Stamps for War-Savings Stamps
in April, it will be fifteen cents; and so on a cent a month
up to December, 1918, when the added amount will be
