A UTTLR TALK ON THRIFT
(By S. V.Strans, President Ameri
i' can Society for .Thrift)
; Much harm Is often ' done by
those who seem to feel that thrift
means merely' denying ourselves
pleasures ana comforts in order
to put aside sums of money.
lt us see what the situation
actually, is with regard to, our
savings. , ; r
Money that isr saved means
merely tha it has been diverted
to useful channels. Instead of
being spent for purposes that will
do us no good as often is the case,
or that do us harm, our savings
are spent constructively:
Even accumulations put in a
savings bank are immediately In
vested for us. The institution
acts as our agent ' in making use
of our savings until such a time
possibly as we may desire to with
draw our deposits from the bank
and invest them in a home, a
farm, a business, or in some other
worthy mannerv : f
Thus the essence of real thrift
Is" correct spending.
, We have at one extreme of the
scale the miser who hoards his
money not for useful purposes,
but merely for the selfish lust of
piling up wealth.' At the other
end of the scale We have the
spendthrift. The money in his
hand possesses certain definite
values of purchasing power, . but
he has no appreciation of these
values or their relative Impor
tance. Hence, he dissipates his
money as fast as h -Aceives it.
The thrifty man embodies the
qualities that are lacking in . the
Doctor Curtis . . . . Winston Wade miser and in the spendthrift.

To be thrifty Is neither to
spend ill nor to save all.
Thrift is the conserving of each
resource that it may be used and
invested to the best advantage.

New Potato Law
Is Ah Improvement
The recenti legislator repealed
the potato law enacted two years
ago, and which has been in effect
for about a year and a half,1 and
enacted a new" statute.
It is founded on and is largely
a part of the former law, but
there are several changes advo
cated by both growers and : buy
ers. The old law had no penalty
for violation and it could not be
enforced. It was over-looked at
the time of its passage. So all
that could be done was to urge
observance and let It go at that.
This was the source of much crit
icism by thoie who did hot know
of the oversight They dlmdhded
that the etate market agent pros
ecute the violators. ;
The new law makes violation a
misdemeanor, and any person
guilty of violation shall be pun
ished by a fine of not less than
nor more than 1 1 00, or by
imprisonment in the county jail of
not less than 10 nor more than SO
days. It provides that It Shall
be -the duty of the state Inspection
to enforce the law. ;
The U. S. Standard grades are
adopted for Oregon, as under the
old law, but authority- is given the
inspection department to fix other
grides and rules not adequately
provided for in U. S. grades. These
can only be made after thorough
investigation and public hearings.
The new law provides that all
potatoes in lots of 50 pounds or
more sold in Oregon shall have
the sack: or container stenciled
with the grade and name of the
grower. This applies only to stock
sold within the state. : The old
law applied to out going shipments
as well. Potatoes which do not
meet the required grades Shall be
known as "No grades" Instead of
"culls" as In IhtottiaSr; --ill pb
tatoes shipped in, 10" lots or more
shall be state Inspected. :: '
In seed potatoes when certified
by the Oregon Agricultural Col
lege, no further inspection is re
quired. ; .i . --f
In grades of No. , i, or better
grade, the sacks shall be uniform,
sound and clean new sacks or "No.
1 Seconds" grain sacks- In lower
grades than No. I, pobre quality
sacks may be used. This distinc
tion will in a measure designate

AN OPEN LETTER
(Name on lequesij 1 v -
Mr. Haley Fiske, Prtudtni
Metropolitan Life Insurance Co.
New Yoaie City
My Dear Mrsthh:
Why don't you publish a Heart Statement
along with the regular Financial Statement you
put out each year? ,
Any company can publish impressive figures
of financial strength, financial growth, etc. But
figures don't stick. All I remember from your
last year Statement is that the Metropolitan has
several million policyholders and is the biggest
life insurance company in the world. : .'.: -
I've been following some of your magazine
TTT TE arc indebted to Mr. S. for hi suggestion.
Ay uy It is an excellent one. We publish .an annual'
V V .Business Statement of the Metropolitan, not
because we think that the figures will be remembered, but
because they offer conclusive evidence of unusual gr6wth
and strength to its' 22,o6d,oo6 pbllcyHotders.
And it is this extraordinary financial strength that
makes .it possible for the -Metropolitan to carry ori a'
nation-wide campaign for better health' and longer life.
People now live longer
Records kept by the Metropolitan sh6w an extraor
dinary decrease in the, dath rat among its policy
holders. Compared with 1911, for example, there were
nearly 62,000 fewer, deaths in 1924 among its Industrial
Policyholders than there would have been' if the 9 11
death" rite" had prevailed.
' ' ' ft"

advertisements lately that tell df work yoVrt
doing to help people live longer. It isn't entirely -clear
in my mind just how you're doing it or why
you do it, but since you are doing it, give us tht
fheix and fgiiris tn tht. ; Call it a Heart Ste
ment or a Welfare Statement, or anything you
like, but give us the facts.
Perhaps other Metropolitan policyholders like
myself would hi interested in .a Statement of
that kind. . ( ,
Very truly yours, , - l ;
While the average life span in t the United States IsV
53 years jgreater than it was 12 years ago, the life span
of the Industrial Policyholders of th6 Metropolitan- in-"
treased nearly S years a betterment of three years
over the general average in the same interval.
These increases in longer life are due in .large" part td
the Metropolitan's Health and Welfare Work among,
its policyholders. '

You and all the other 22,000,006 policyholders
