Within the stockade or in the open field, they toiled yes, fought by the f side of their men for the safeguarding of everything they held dear. In the hearts of the women of Canada, this old spirit flames anew today! Gone are the heavy muskets, the log barricades - but the love of freedom, the stubborn resolve to win through at all costs these things remain unchanged, unchangeable ! Grimly quenching their tears, mothers say "God bless you" to their fighting sons -- everywhere young women are serving where duty calls -- the women of Canada are bound together in one common cause. In thousands of Canadian homes, women are revising their family budgets, planning new economies, mak- ing c A if ' f extra sacrifices- - so that more and more money will b,e available for the purchase of Victory Bonds. They know these women of Canada that every 1) if N dollar loaned now means more tanks more guns-m- ore II j , - : r planes more ships more of everything which is needed to smash Hitlerism"and 'bringPeacc to all the family hearths of the world.
