The Test of Our Loyalty is the Measure of Our Sacrifice
Poster showing a scene of combat over text reading "This man is a patriot - he will work 24 hours a day for his country" and a scene of a cigar smoking "Agitator" under text reading "Is this man a patriot - he works 24 hours for his pocketbook" divided by the question "Where do you stand?" A tiny bird comments, "And we need our industrial army to keep these boys in the field." Text below image: A full day's work in the munitions shop, mine, mill, or shipyard is equivalent to taking a German trench. The blue overalls of the mechanic covers the same sort of Americanism as is clothed in the khaki in the trenches and in the working clothes of the captains of industry.
