Advertisement From where [ Joe Marsh Lud Denny Lends a Helping Hand Lud Denny got home early from the plant the other day, and found his missus in the middle of housecleaning, with the fur- niture moved around, and the place a shambles. Some men might have grum- bled about getting precious lit- tle time off, and finding their home upset. But not Lud. He Just t(mk his coat off, and pitched in and helped. And when he got the last cur- tain in place, and stepped down off tim ladder, there was his mis- sus with a tray of cold beer and cheese blintzes she'd made for Lud. And blintzes are Lud's fa- vorite dish. From where I sit, it's little things like this that will help to ease our troubled Hves today-- see us through diffficulties--keep alive the spirit of good fellow- ship and mutual respect. Try trading a helping hand for Ice- cold beer and blintzes. See if it doesn't make life seem a Httle brighter!

THIS, SIR, IS A NEW EXPERIENCE IN EATING a wholesome, l e-susta&;ng meal ;n a compact, cardboard box. Her 's how to eat it, in the conventional way First, slip into some dirty, mud-caked clothes. Grow an itchy three-day beard. Get your feet soaking wet, until they're sore and swollen and occasionally numb. To sharpen up your appetite, hack your way through a few n es of tangled briars and steamy, bug-ridden jungle. Carry a sack of potatoes on your back, just for realism. And now, supper. First, that good, hard, brittle biscuit--rich in ody fuel, but not exacdy a chef's supreme crea- tion. Wash it down with a gulp of bouillon made with stale, lukewarm canteen water. Now for that tin of luncheon meat. (Too bad it can't be studded svith cloves or garnished with parsley, or dressed with condiments, isn't it?) Dessert? Sure--a hunk of rock-hard (but super- I1ourishing) chocolate. Now a stick of chewing gum, and a cigarette, and your meal is done. No tipping, please. At this moment, some man you know is probably eating this meal of K-Ration. You, at home, are not asked to share the rigors and perils of battle with him. But you can give him support--by investing in extra War Bonds during the Seventh War Loan Drive, now in progress. With only two drives instead of three scheduled for this year, every one of us must increase our pledges. More ships are needed, to move our armies into battle. More planes, more guns, more rockets. And--as we show our gratitude to the men and women in uniform buying War Bonds, we also help to hasten the day when they can sit down, as you will tonight, to a pleasant meal, in peace.
