Second victory loan quota

Victory Loans were the government's way of raising much-needed money from the savings of soldiers and civilians.  These loans were paid back with interest after the war.  This poster encourages people to think of it as a test of strength, against the hated figures of Adolf Hitler on the left, and Hideki Tojo, the Japanese Prime Minister, on the right.
