PILGRIM'S PROGRESS NE'ER
Hoover Button Spurs Inquisitive Youth Ever Onward in Search of
Truth About Saving Food.
An animated Question Mark wearing red hair and a green lid was per
ambulating across the campus when it met a Man with large spectacles
astride his nose and a Bright Button on his coat lapel.
Said Question, “Please, sir* what is that button?”
“That is a Hoover Button,” said the Thoughtful one, and passed on.
Question wrinkled its freckled forehead, but could see no light.
A Young Sprout in a smart belted suit pranced past.
“Oh, sir,” pleaded Question, “What is a Hoover Button?”
“Go ask Miss Uplegar,” said the Young Sprout over his shoulder and hur
ried after a Girl who was dallying under a big maple tree waiting for Nothing.
Question, its burning Thirst for knowledge unrequited, wandered on dis
A young man disguised in a tremendously new’ pair of Corduroy Britches
came along with a Firm Stride, and question detained him.
“What is a Hoover Button?” repeaeted Britches trying to be kind and
Intelligent. “You say the Button is a red-white-and-blue shield encircled by
a bronze disc? I have seen Dean Allen wearing such a button, but I can’t
tell WHY. There used to be a fellow by the name of Hoover writing for
the Saturday Evening Post, but I never read his stuff, caring only for
Snappy Fiction myself.
And he passes on to the Corner Sweet Shop to buy a pound of Chocolate
Nougats for his Girl. -
A manly youth approached. A wide hat sat low upon his fair broad brow,
casting a friendly shadow upon the tender sprouts upon his upper lip. Ques
tion diffidently sidled toward Him and told his troubles, to which He listened
“Of course you know the significance of the red-white-and-blue shield,”
said the youth with the Broad Brow. “Now did you notice the heads of
grain which form the decoration in the bronze border of the button? Therein
lies the significance of the Button. Mr. Hoover is President Wilson’s Food
Administrator and this Bright Button is the Badge worn by his Lieutenants
throughout the United States. Every person wearing this Bright Button is
i actively engaged in the campaign for food conservation.”
“Why should we conserver food?” asked silly Question.
“I have to go study cat anatomy now,” said Broad Brow, “but I shall be
glad to tell you another time. By the way, did you know that Herbert Hoover
used to live at Newberg, Oregon, and went to Pacific Academy?”
“Did they have Hoover Buttons there then?” asked Question.
! “No, but they do now,” said Broad Brow.
