DO YOUR BIT!
The prosperous campaign is rapidly going forward in this State, and evidences of better times ahead are becoming daily
Depression comes, depression goes,
And why and wherefor goodness knows,
For frankly I'm not one of those,
To say how such things started.
But still the old world muddles on,
And, even when depression's gone,
We all are apt to dwell upon
Old worries now departed.
So now's the time to spend a bit,
To lend a bit, or send a bit;
To help some needy friend a bit
And you and I, and all of us,
Including great and small of us,
To waken to the call of us
To rally to the nation.
We still are apt to sigh a bit,
But now's the time to try a bit
To loose the purse, and buy a bit;
Glom lingers lest we beat it.
Past days of grim severity
Have dulled our old temerity,
But near us looms prosperity;
So let's go out and greet it.
