April 17, 1943 - $1,435,000 is needed to put bond sale over: Buyers for $1,435,000 worth of war bonds to shoot Brown county's Second War Loan campaign over its mark before May 1 if possible were sought today by the drive committee.

That big sum, it was pointed out, is needed and must be raised if the county quota of $3,160,000 is going to be met. Friday purchases fell way off from the first four days of the drive, amounting to but $125,000, it was reported.

The day's receipts, however, lifted the amount realized thus far to $1,725,000 for the five-day period. The campaign leaders, Co-chairmen J.M. Conway and John Rose, conceded that this showing "is good" but they insisted that the last million to be raised "will be toughest" and will require a push by everybody.
