the Eugene team last night in a
game played on the Salem high floor-
Hot h teams played a "dirty game.
More, than 20 fouls were called dur
ing the game. Play began at 7:45
and the first move of the evening
was a foul on Salem. It seemed that
this held evil abode over the entire
evening as the Eugene team kept on
an even pace with doing their share-
Every player of each team just
"battled" their way through. Eugene

The First Step
It naturally follows that the first
step is to start a bank account. All
you need is a dollar and a backbone.
Won't worry about how small your
Hrstd e posit in the savings bank may
be. The big thing about it is the
fact that you made it today. Let to
day be the beginning of your sav
ings if you are not already a depos
itor of pome bank. If you are a de
positor then resolve to increae your
balance with the bank. Simply nut
ting money in the bank and then
checking it out again, is ) poor bust-
ness. you should allow some funds to
accumulate. However, it is better
to have a small .balance with the
bank than not to bank at all.
He A Good Citizen
A " good citizen realizes that the
"bank Is his best friend and wilt ad
vise him right. Before you invest
money, ask your .banker what he
thinks about the investment. You
will never make any mistakes about
money if yoi? confer with the banker."

Everyone should realize that they
should use the banks in every way.
Deposit every cent you can in the
bank, but whenever possible put ev
ery- available penny into ' your sav
ings account for in this way you be
come thrifty. Tou are making In

you will be surprised how much you
can accumulate in a few years by

percentage each month, and as much
more as possible, and add.it to your
. - Hoy To Save Systematically
The reason most people never save
anything : in their . lives is because
they never have anything left to
save. Here is an unfailing system
ajl you, have to do is to follow it and
you are as sure to become Independ
' ent as the sun Is to shine. When you
get a dollar take ten cents and put
it aside for the savings bank. Take
the first ten cents from that dollar
and save thai, don't ever spend it
and as fast as you get money, simply
say, "Ten per cent of this does not
belong to rue. It belongs to my sav
ings," and don't let anything stop
you, but take the first ten per cent
- and put it in the bank.
Why Should n Save? "
There is a! very great reason for
people saving. The people of the
United States especially have become
spendthrifts. Only about 3 per cent
ever really save. -Government statis
tics show most conclusively that very
few people are in the habit of saving
at the present time. We have been
altogether too lavish., not only with
money, but with our time also. Pro
- duction has fallen off; prices have
risen and we are facing a crisis "un
less we face about and learn thrift
and how to save. If we will save

and If we will strive to work a lit
tie more and thereby produce .more

The governor upon feigning of tli

upon my suggestion I wrould ask the

this of greater importance than th
