Usual The President of the United States and many wise economists of lesser note throughout the land emphasize the importance of UNINTERRUPTED AND IN CREASED PRODUCTION in the factories, in the mines, on the farms, and every other form of industry. War cannot be successfully waged without internal prosper ity; war time brings greater use for all commodities, not less. To frighten trade at the place of con sumption is to smother it at the source of creation. To retard distribution would be to paralyze production. It is important that our buying and selling be uninterrupted. Money should not be hoarded, but exchanged circulated kept moving. That process alone will save the country from internal hardship and outward menace. A great store like this, whose reputation depends upon con tinued public confidence, may safely be depended upon to serve as an economical distributing cen ter its managers are ever alert to secure for its customers the best merchandise and the best values obtainable to bring them to your door at the lowest pos sible cost above cost of production.
