When you spend small sums on little luxuries do you ever think of how far the effects of your action may spread ? A stone thrown into a pond produces little circular waves which extend and grow fainter until they are no longer visible. But as a matter of scientific fact they eventually reach the very edges of the pond. A similar thing happens when you buy anything which is not really necessary. The shop-assistant who serves you, the carman who brought the goods from the railway, the railway workers, the factory workers who made the article, the engineers who controlled the machinery, the miners who procured the necessary coal, the ships and sailors who brought the raw material, are all prevented from working for the country because of the demand you and others have created for these unnecessary goods, Could you not, without hardship, forego these purchases and, with the money you would save, buy War Savings Certificates? Then you would be really helping your Country and yourself at the same time. You can get them at any Post Office, Bank, or through your Local War Savings Association. Keep each 15/6 Certificate for five years, and the Government guarantees to pay you £ 1 for it in cash. If you need the money in the meantime, you can cash your Certificates at the Post Office. They increase automatically in value year by year. Each I member of a family can hold up to 500 of them. They are entirely free from Income Tax.
