THRIFT CAMPAIGN

On Dec. 3 the national government, through the postoffices, will launch a thrift campaign making it possible for almost every person to become a bondholder of interest-bearing government obligations. The plan is known as the war-savings certificate plan and it is believed that within the coming year $2,000,000,000 will be realized from the savings of the small change of the people.

Stamps will be on sale at every money order office in the country as well as every city and rural carrier in the postal service. Each stamp will sell for $4.12 in December and be redeemed for $5 five years from date. Price of the stamps will increase one cent a month during 1918.
