THE ECONOMISTS VIEW
"Perhaps at no other time In this
nation's history is the appeal 'Work
and Save aa necessary as at present.
Manufacturers, financiers, economists
and many others including even the
mora conservative labor leaders, real
ize that nnless we work and work hard,
and tare and save hard, we are headed
for a period of unprecedented hardship.
tou is not the mere, mouthing of a.
jingo or professional pessimist. It Is a.
fact, and is supported by innumerable
sign everywhere. Every hoar wasted
and every dollar spent needlassly Is
like small dagger thrust at the heart
of this country. Enough of these dag
ger thrusts will finally reach the heart
Itself. The fact that we are extra
ordinarily rich furnishes no Immunity
from ultimate disaster if we waste
these riches. The thing to do is for
each and every one of as to pull in the
same direction, towards national econ
omy. Without it we are lout. With it,
we can Insure our national future."
"Odd Lot Review."
National economy is only collective
personal economy. Quit baying and
sink your dollars In government secu
rities such as Thrift and War Savings
Stamps' and Treasury Savings Certi
ficates. WAR-TIMETHRIFT AND
"Either the people aa n whole most
finance the government, either through
taxation or bond purchase, or the gov
ernment must borrow from Individuals,
from- banks, or from corporations of
large fortunes. If It does the latter,
these Interests hold exactly the aame
relation to the government that the
holder of a first mortgage doe to the
owner of the property and the payer of
the Interest If, on the other hand, the
debt is divided between mUUooa of
citizens who -art the government, tne
relationship'ls aa different as la a co
operative society from a Uriah Keep."

The United State needs the money
you Invent In War Savings Stamps.
Buy them every week. They bting 4
per cent interest compounded every
three months. They giv yoa a share
in the government of the United
States, Un-Ud. meaning anlimited.
The new Treasury certificate of
J100 and $1000 denominations are Ilk
"Baby Bonds." Her are the chief
facts about them:
They are tax free, except Inheritance,
surtaxes, wsr profits and excess profits
They bear 4 per cent interest, com
They mature January 1, 124.
They may be cashed at tb option of
the holder for purcoase price plus ac
crued interest any time before matu
They never depreciate In value, but
increase monthly, guaranteed by U. 8.
They are registered in Washington,
which prevents loss by fire or theft
Each bears inscribed thereon the name
Certificates are issued In book form,
each book containing ten certificate.
The $100 certificate costs the same
as twenty War Savings Stamps. The
$1000 certificate cost the same as 100
War Savings Stamps.
$100 certificate can be obtained at
any post office.
Both $100 and $1000 certificates may
be obtained at banks.
$100 certificates increase 20 cents
and the $1000 certificates two dollars
n month In price.
The cost by months I aa follows:
If the truth were known, General
Pershing probably would rather face
bullets than banquets.
An acute shortage of everything the
consumer must have seems to be the
regular order of things.
Hard elder has made every possible
effort to establish Itself on a respec
table footing as a soft driuk.
What a beautiful world this would
be If flowers only grew to resemble
their pictures In the seed catalogue. .
WHAT A YOUNG MAN
"Presumably every young man
knows, ss a physical fact, that he can
do nothing next year which be cannot
in some degree, do todsy. The
Important question Is whether the time
will come early enough In life to do
him any particular good. A lazy man
cannot possibly make himself indus
trious in the future; or an extravagant
man. economical. If It Is done at all
he must do it at an immediate present
moment at tome 'right now'! No man
ever saved a penny in the future, or
ever wilt He has got to save the
penny In bis bsnd at the moment or he
will be broke to the day of bis death.
To save the penny In band he
must resist the temptation to spend It.
Every year that he does not re-
slst weakens bis ability to resist. It"
Is within the knowledge of everybody
who has the ordinary circle of acquain
tances that, after ft certain time, the
man who lives up to the limit of bis In
comewhich about nine times out of
ten means a little beyond accepts that
as a normal condition and just auto
matically spends all that he gets.
If be can realize by thirty, or sooner,
that he Is spending bis future every
dsy, it will be a good thing for him,"
