THE Yanks are coming! Home, this time. And we don't call them "YanlJs," tliey're "our own boys." Tliey are coming back from battle and hardship and devastation to tlie land that you may be sure they have always longed for and dreamed .about and hungered to get back to.
What sort of a place will they tind it? Will home come up to their dreams? Will it look as good as tliey were sure It would?
That's up to you.
You know whether the old place has run down, whether the stress of •war economy has forced you to neg¬ lect the appearance and the upkeep of your home. The diances are that it HAS run down. You haven't had the time nor tlie money, nor iiuite the heart to "Glean Up.and Paint Up" that you liad in bygone years. Maybe it didn't seem ijuite fitting to you to look too spruce and spick and span when you knew your country needed your money and your time and the fellows you knew and loved were do¬ ing without a whole lot of things- food and rest and slielter.
