against not eating pies. Anyone

Look at it another notice from
the bank that my account Is over

financial troubles,- because it's
more convenient thtn exposing
the real difficulty. She started
keeping accounts because every
thingbody seemed to be doing it.
It was a fad rather troublesome,
to be sure, but you were supposed
to save money that way. Every
body said, "Budget your income."
"Keep household accounts" and
Dorothy assumed that keeping ac
counts was like having money in
The catch In her case Is that
her husband didn't feel the same
way about it. "I know exactly
what our income Is each month,
and we spend only what we have
to what's the use of making a
6olemn record of It every time we
spend a nickel?" He laughted it
off. But Dorothy was just as pos
itive. And while her husband
blithely- spent as he went, she
conscientiously looked at her bud
get allowance before she went
shopping and wrote down the
sums spent afterward.
Of course, this sort of work
was perfectly futile; inasmuch as
there was only one income and
two peopfc were speuding it in
different ways. If two people are
living on one income, a budget
is very helpful, if both keep well
within it and yet live as comfort
ably as their means permit. In
fact, a candid arrangement of this
sort, whereby both husband and
wife know exactly what is the lim

What is a budget anyway? In
recent years it has suffered the
fate of most suddenly popularized
words misunderstandings and
misapplication. Pec pie use the
words "Budget" and "Vitamins"
and "Relativity" because they're
popular discoveries, and they
mean something very important,
though few know exactly what.
The word budget is merely the
name for an estimate of what you
will earn and can spend for the
ensuing year. Lou make your own
prophecy of income and expenses
and you call tntt a budget. Gov
ernments hare to make budgets
so that each departmtut knows in
advance what it is allowed to
spend. By law it is compelled to
remain within the budget and do
without the things that cost too
Only a gentleman's agreement
can keep a married couple within
the budget there's na !a pro
tecting a husband from his wife's
excessive spending, and. of course,
it's the same the other way
around. Nevertheless, if Dorothy
and Jack came to a definite agree
ment at the beginning of the year,
or at the beginning of each month,
to set aside a certain sum for
joint and individual expense,
there is a reasonable chance that
each would stick to the agree
