Wyatt was alleged to have met the

when girls of this age are permitted

"A honvv bond in addition to the

said. "When saloons were in opera

against the attendance of young boys

With interviews from several Influ
ential Salem bankers telling why thrift
is a good thing. National Thrift week
was ushered Into Salem Saturday.
The main reason for calling this
"Bank Day" Is to prove conclusively
that the best way to save is to take the
amount you Intend to save from the
top of the dollar and not from the bot
tom If you do not have a strings ac
count, start one now. If you do not
deposit in some bank go and start a
bank account with some bank now or
resolve to do so Just as soon as possi
ble. All you need to start a savings
account is one dollar and a backbone.
Here is what several Salem bankers
say about thrift:
David Eyre, TJ. 8. National: In or
der for the people of the United States
to become thrifty they should adopt
some system of saving. By using; the
banks In their home ctly in every pos
sible way is one of the first lessons in
thrift Saving a certain percentage of
what they earn will soon become a
habit and by conferring with their
banker before making investments will
make for absolute safety.
Joseph Albert, Capital National:
The people of the United States must
learn to be hrifty before relief from
the high cost of living can be secured.
Every man, woman and child Bhould
learn to save In every way. More mon
ey must be saved and we must remem
ber that "time" Is money and that ev
ery minute should be devoted to useful
Industry. Salem will grow much more
apldily if the citizens will study to be
8. B. Elliot, Salem Bank of Com
merce: People should learn to save in
small matters. Every child should
have a savings account and be encour
aged to deposit as much as possible wi
that account A small berinnlne
makes for larger things later in life
and the child that starts to save early
In life will some day be the great financier.
William a Walton, cashier Ladd &
Bush bank: Thrift in my opinion is
the greatest weapon with which to
fight the high cost of living. As sure
ly as extravagance and useless spend
ing Increases prices, thrift and saving
will reduce them. The greatest need
of this countrytoduy is economy, which
applies to both the Individual and gov
CAPTIVE; BLOW SAFE
