Inscription: Crippled Soldiers Learning a New Trade / Our government is teaching new trades to our crippled soldiers who cannot work at their old occupations. These men are learning to vulcanize auto tires in the great Government school at Colonia, N.J., which covers 50 acres and in which every useful trade is taught. Every quarter with which you buy Thrift Stamps helps Uncle Sam teach somebody's wounded father or brother to earn a living. We should all be proud and happy to do what we can for these heroes. Keep on Buying Thrift Stamps!
