Synopsis
Queen Hippolyte, having noted strange things in her Magic Sphere, asks her daughter about why Americans are trying to conserve paper. Diana explains that the Americans use paper to pack rations, cartridges and shells in it, use it to line their shoes, being used to make bomb bands, practice bombs wing tips, parachute flares, airplane signals and other essentials for war. Wonder Woman then repeats the need for all boys and girls to also collect and turn in all waste paper themselves in this effort.
