Poster Text:  "No loyal citizen of the United States should be denied the democratic right to exercise the responsibilities of his citizenship, regardless of his ancestry. The principle on which this country was founded and by which it has always been governed is that Americanism is a matter of the mind and heart. Americanism is not, and never was, a matter of race or ancestry. Every loyal American citizen should be given the opportunity to serve this country wherever his skills will make the greatest contribution - whether it be in the ranks of our armed forces, war production, agriculture, government service, or other work essential to the war effort."  THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. FEBRUARY 3. 1943 - OWI Poster No. 75. Additional copies may be obtained upon request  from the Division of Public Inquiry, Office of War Information, Washinton D.C. - U.S. Government Printing Office : 1943-0-533582
