Salem Children Display Ex
ceptional Ability in Con
tests Which Are Held
Some remarkably good essays
were handed in during the recent
Thrift Week contest in the public
schools for the prizes that were of
fered in every grade from fourth
up to the ninth inclusive and one
series for the high school proper.
The promoters of National Thrift
Week haven't much hope; of re
forming the hardened old sinners
who have gotten into the way of
wasting their lives in chewing
gum and wearing louder neckties
than they should, but they are
getting down under the skins of
the young 'uns, as the .essays
: Two of the lower grade essays
are here published as showing
some of the capabilities' and train
ing of the Salem children. It
may 'be the fashion to say "The
kids can't spell or . write fit
English, and their handwriting is
simply terrible," but the essay,
practically every one of. the many
hundreds coming in in hand-writing,
would put some of these old
sters Into the hospital in a spell
ing contest or in the use of clear,
grammatical English. The two
essays here given, from the fourth
and fifth grades, may speak for
themselves as to whether they
teach workable English in the
schools. - '
Fourth Grade First Prize Essay
By Blair Foley Garfield School
"One who is saving of his time,
strength and money is a thrifty
person. Try to get the most out
of these things.. To do this we
should be saving and industrious.
We must learn to be good man
agers and not waste anything that
is useful. If we are wasteful -we
will never grow up to be success
"One . i way of being thrifty, is
to take good care of the body.
Eat good food and take proper
exercise -and - breathe plenty of
fresh air. It Is cheaper to learn
a few simple: health rules and
practice them than to pay doctor's
bills. - v - .
"We should; all make the best
use of our time because time will
never come back. If we improve
our school time we will be better
prepared to make a living. Every
child should start a bank account.
It will be a pleasure to watch it
grow." ". ' : . ' "
Fifth Grade First Prize Essay by
Vivian Benner Garfield -
"Thrift means not only to be
thrifty with money, but it means
to be thrifty . with everything.
Thrift means to earn, to save, to
take care of things, and when you
spend your money spend it wisely.
"The first things to be thrifty
with' is time, which is very valu
able, because everybody needs it,
but they must; not waste it. When
a person- is wasting his own time,
he is generally wasting someone
else's too, especially In school.
"Another important thing is
effort. No one should waste their
effort on needless things, but
learn to do the necessary things
easily. ' V - '
"People ' should take care of
their clothes, their books, and
their money, especially money, be
cause they are all very important
things In our; country. Some .of
the people of our country, are
thrifty while others are thriftless.
If we are all thrifty we will be
happier, and we will be more UBe
ful to our country. . '
"We can oe rnrifty by leaving
the forests until we , really need
them, and we can save our land
by cultivating something different
every year,-than what we had the
last year. . It Is a very good thing
to have a savings account, because
you may need : your money very
badly some time. 1
