What Saving Mean
How tunny people helped get your brcnkfnst this morn-
Not to mention the wife or mother who cooked it. von
think nt once of the fanner who rnised the whont, the miller
who ground the Hour, the plnnter who grew the colTec, the
snilors nnd rnilroad men who cnrrlcd the food, the grocer
who brought it to your door.
Vou think ngnin of the men who mode the farmer's
plow, who built the ships nnd laid the mils, nnd uitulc the
tools thnt mnde the tools until it seems ns though nit the
world hnd been working for the Inst hundred years to get
your brcnkfnst ready this morning.
Whnt interests us nt this minute is this: Savings did
Savings built the railroads nnd the ships nnd hired the
men who tundc the tools. Savings sent the ship on its long
voyage and kept the wheat for months in stornge.
Savings set the grocer up in business nnd put the plow
in the farmer's hands.
All the wealth in the world began with somebody's
savings. All thnt we call civilization wns planted nnd wa
tered by savings.
Until men learned to save they were snvnges, clnd in
skins nnd living on what they could kill or wearing fig
leaves and living on fruit in the tropics. It was when they
began to have something nhend that they started to be bet
ter than savages.
When you turn on the electric light or pick up the tel
ephone or start n new record on the plionogrnph, it is not
only somebody's work yesterday or Inst year that you are
using it is Inst year's work, built on the work of the pre
ceding generation, built on the work of n hundred years ngo,
built on the work of men who lived before America was dis
covered, before Rome nnd Kgypt nnd Babylon.
I?or the uinti who made the electric light could uot have
done it without the steam engine, nnd the man who mnde
the stcntu engine could uot have done it without the forge,
nnd the man who first forged iron wns living on food raised
with the help of wooden plows.
Hut, in every case, the accumulation of wealth began
with somebody's saving getting n little uhentl ns ustnrt for
going further nhend.
Today the only way wc can get nhend any of us or nil
us together- is by saving.
If wc were to build n rnilroad, we should have to furn
ish n living to the men who dig the ore and make the steel,
nnd nil the others who work on truck or equipment.
Their living is paid to them ns wnges, hut what those
workers really get Is food nnd clothing and other goods that
somebody has saved. So when we save, we do something
besides get ahead in the world on our own account. We
.set other people to work making things to shove this world
n little further nhend. Whatever we save in one way or
another is mingled with the general prosperity fund with
which all the world ndvnuces.
Now, five dollars doesn't seem very much with which to
make the world move faster, and n quarter looks fooliwli.
Hut all the wealth in the world is founded on savings
.savings much less than n quarter -savings of puunias and
farthings nnd sous. And every quarter and every penny
and every farthing is made of human strength.
