During WWI Liberty Bonds were for sale to raise money to help finance the war,
so Papa bought us some bonds at the Marine Bank in New Orleans. We were each
given an egg-shaped chrome bank so we could continue saving money for the war
effort. Money was scarce and we came up with a few nickels very seldom. However
we managed to save a little and saved it in our banks. The war finally ended and
the boys came back home (except one who died in training with pneumonia).
