U.S.F.&G. Salutes the Buckeye State! Ohio Stands for Leadership! EIGHT presidents of the United States have called Ohio their home. From the Buckeye State came such pioneers as Thomas A. Edison, Newton D. Baker, Harvey S. Firestone to name only a few. And the industries of prewar Ohio led the nation in rubber products, machine tools, soap, matches, steam shovels, pottery, pumps, stoves, and electrical apparatus. A horn of plenty in time of peace, Ohio is a mighty arsenal in war! In Ohio, as in every other state, the U.S.F . & G. safeguards business and the individual, writing practically all forms of fidelity and surety bonds and casualty insurance policies.

U .S.F . & G. is proud that its insurance policies and surety bonds, for almost half a century, have contributed to Ohio's progress. Help Fight Inflation! Keep Prices Down! In Greece, before Allied liberation, it took a basketful of money to buy a dozen eggs. That's inflation! In this country, too, prices have risen . . . will continue to rise unless every American; (1) pays no more than top legal prices for commodities, (2) accepts no rationed goods without giving up ration stamps, (3) puts every possible penny in War Bonds, insurance and savings. Fight inflation! Think before you spend!
