"We salute these 72 patriots above, who have offered their services in helping to "make the world a decent place to live in." The Company is showing its appreciation to these boys by paying all those who have been in our employ for more than one year previous to their enlistment, the sum of $20.00 per month. Those at home are doing their bit by lending Uncle Same their money (through sales of) War Savings Stamps and Thrift Stamps."
