Abstract Victory Liberty Loan Handbill produced by the United War Work Campaign. It encourages every person in the United States to spend .00125 on every dollar of their net worth. An example of a household with a net worth of $10,000, their fare share would be $12.50. Ward Captains were assigned to meet people at their polling places from Monday, November 11, through Tuesday, November 12, to distribute "Your Fair Share" cards. Subscribers were then listed by ward and published in the Daily Northwestern newspaper.
