Buy Only What You Need
But Buy It Now
The re-employment of returning soldiers sailors and marines istne
patriotic duty of the whole people.
Industry cannot absorb these men and take care of men already em-
ployed unless there is a demand for industrial products.
All commerce rests finally upon the individual purchases of the people
. When people buy business is good when people cease buying in-
The Nation is in a period of transition from a war to a peace basis
to make this transition quickly it is necessary that the people of the
United States understand the necessity of buying what they need now.
Hoarding is dangerous so is waste.
Take the middle course.
Buy Now but buy carefully.
