Victory Bond Day; Final Drive–

“E” Bond quota for Daniels County is $115,000.

Carl Lindquist and his committeemen have set Saturday, October 20 as Victory Bond Day.

Daniels County won a name for itself in oversubscribing the last six loans in one day and that day always previous to the of- ficial opening day of the

drive. Now, with the victory won, the county’s hope is to

maintain its record in this fi nal drive and be the number one county in the nation to reach its quota.
