Avalon's quota is remaining at $50,000, It was voted and adopted by the students in assembly, that the school .'shall sell half of Avalon's .quota which will be $23,000. The plan used in obtaining these bonds, will be ,the same as that used during the last two drives. The student will ask an indiv- idual if he will buy from him. The prospective purchaser will then fill out a blank given him by the student, After this has been stamped at school, it will be returned to the individual. The bond may be purchased either at the bank or at the post office. Stu- dents are not allowed to handle the money. Students may begin now to get promises for bonds but th@ cannot accept filled out blanks until the drive begins January 18. It will end Feb- ruary 1. Because of the school's help in the last drive, the Student Body received a certificate from the United States Treasury Department, thanking us ,for our work in the Third War Loan Drive. A. H. S.
