Here are four more advertisements from a 1944 FORTUNE MAGAZINE. All of these ads tie in their product with the war effort. Check out the “motorcycle of the future” in the Bundy Tubing ad. This company also claims to have made lines of tubing for nearly 10,000 different war product parts. The farmer is driving a “machine of war" in the ad for International Harvester. The Eaton Manufacturing CO is "devoting our entire facilities and resources to war work." In the Studebaker ad, the Connell brothers are off to war, leaving “the job of building Flying Fortress engines to their Dad.” You certainly don’t see any of these “rally around the war” advertisements in today’s magazines. I'm thinking about tearing these out of the magazine and framing. Should I?
