Summary: Cartoon appeal for buying National War Savings Certificates in Britain, 1917-1918.
Description: The animated cartoon is a parody of the nursery rhyme. Jill, a munitions worker, collects her pay and goes with her husband Jack to buy War Savings Certificates at a post office. After five years they watch their house being "built", as a line drawing, with Jack's savings, while Jill's pay for the furniture that is delivered. "Money saved spells victory and the end of Kaiser Bill". The figure of the Kaiser has a cone marked "War Savings Certificates" lowered over his head by a giant hand. The Crown Prince cries for his "Papa". The film invites "secure your happiness now" by purchasing War Bonds and War Savings Certificates.
