Director Hardee advised all hold ers of First Loan Bonds and Victory Loan Notes to take the time to clip their coupons due and cash them. "Undipped coupons represent idle money," he said, "which ought to be re-invested immediately in gov ernment savings securities, such as the $5 War Savings stamp and the $25, $100, and $1,000 Treasury Sav ings certificates. These government savings securities pay four per cent interest, compounded quarterly, and inature in five years.

As a rule, government savings securities can be bought at the bank where you cash your cou pons if not, they can be obtained at all post offices."
