Your Help Needed The postwar period will bring new problems and new OPPORTUNITIES. Gains that we have made must be consolidated and held. New gains are within our grasp. Returning servicemen―who have done more, perhaps, to break down race prejudices than Lincoln―look to us for guidance in education, employment and readjustment to a topsy-turvy, changed civilian world. We cannot fail them. WE WILL NOT FAIL THEM IF YOU COME THROUGH. Spearheaded from our national home in Washington is a tremendous movement to bring about our destiny. We have a splendidly equipped headquarters, a growing program and a magazine of international repute. These things cost money, but the money involved is like a drop in the ocean compared to benefits to be derived. To continue the work that has been so far advanced, WE NEED THIS BUDGET.
