Notes

Additional text on poster: "'If you want to know if you are going to be a success or a failure in life you can easily find out. The test is simple and infallible: Are you able to save money? If not, drop out! You will fail as sure as you live. You may not think so, but you will. The seed of success is not in you.' --James J. Hill. The seed of success is saving, buy war savings stamps regularly, they earn interest for you, have a bank account"
