Redeem War Savings Stamp Pledges, Fairfax Standard, 11-7-1918

Voiced by Amazon Polly
1917-1918 War Savings Stamp

Patriotic people of Minnesota are out to make a record in the redeeming of pledges for War Savings Stamps. They have already proven themselves loyal by pledging approximately $40,000,000. Of this amount there is still $18,000,000 outstanding in unredeemed pledges. All of these pledges must be redeemed in order to put Minnesota in its proper place among the patriotic states of the Union.

The State Committee has just launched a campaign in which a check is being made upon every unredeemed pledge in the State. Special representatives have been assigned to each County, and every place where pledges have been lodged for collection will be visited and the data in connection with unredeemed pledges will be taken by these representatives and same will be investigated through the State Committee with a determination by the Committee that there will be no unredeemed pledges outstanding by December 31st, 1918, at which time the 1918 campaign for the State closes.
