Tunic Blouse Leans
Toward Flaring Lines
In the realm of blotrse fashions the
attention of designers is centered on
tunics and overblotis-s. The tunic
blouse shows a decided leaning toward
lines that are less straight and severe
than those that have prevailed this
season, and the overblouse is taking
on a little additional length. By
means of slushed Beams, godets and
frills at the bottom, the tunic blouse
Is widened below the knees. It also
appears with set-on panels as In the
blouse of black satin pictured wilh six
panels faced with brocaded velvet,
which covers three of the panels and
partially rovers the alternate ones. A
few tucks at each side give a little
definition to the waistline.
T HAVE always been convinced that
if Tom Sawyer bad had more than
one fence to whitewash he might have
hod considerable trouble in getting
the neighbor boys to take the job off
his hands. It was the novelty of the
thing that deceived them. latter they
would have awakened to the fact that
It was real work they were up against,
and Tom would have been compelled
to take a little exercise himself.
Whin Tarn Tain (I'Shanter is the
name of our car when 'I am was new
and shiny and a novelty to our friends,
every member of the family from the
maid to the boy who mows the lawn
was interested in keeping him polished
to the highest degree.
When I would open up the garage
and begin the bathing process even
the neighbors would come running out
with wet chamois cloths to assist ut
the ceremonies or to stand around with
words of encouragement or suggestion.
It was a privilege to help In the ablu
tions. "It's all right when It's new," one of
toy pessimistic neighbors said to me
as, passing through the yard one morn
ing, he caught me polishing up Tain,
"but just wait a while."
He Was quite right. Condition
have changed now ; Tain's body is a
trifle duller from contact with the ele
ments, the process of keeping him
'lean has grown commonplace and
arduous. Even the friends who most
often take advantage of his motive
power to save them from physical ex
ertion are no longer interested in the
vulgar details of his personal toilet.
They speak to me, perhaps, as they
catch me at work, but their business
needs Immediate attention, and they
pass on quickly.
It takes courage and persistence to
keep at a task alter the novelty of It
lias passed and only the dull, tiresome,
and regularly recurring details remain,
it takes courage; I say, whether the
task be washing the car, studying an
uninteresting lesson, or sticking to a
principle which people think Is old
fashioned or out of date, like being
honest or going to chinch, or respect
lng old-time conventions. It takes
character to stick to a hard milliter
estlng joh until it Is finished, but the
satisfaction of finishing something one
has begun, of doing something wall
usually more than pays for the effort
One's self-respect and self-satisf action
are worth a lot.

WHAT A BUDGET
One Must Keep Track of Dis
bursements to Get Ahead
Notice For Publication
By E. C. SAMMONS,
Chairman Budget Department
Oregon National Thrift Committee
How to get ahead financially, yet
live decently and well, is doubtless
the most absorbing and important mat
ter confronting the average person or
the average family, and that is tha
subject we wish to discuss and en
deavor to assist in solving.
No discussion of the subject can be
gin or end without mention of the
meaning of "Thrift." Thrift means
good management, vigorous growth;
it means spending less than you earn ;
it means saving systematically. It
does not mean that 'one should stop
spending; on the contrary, it means
spending, but spending wisely and
thoughtfully instead of carelessly.
There is but one real way to dis
cuss the question of Thrift and that
is: What will Thrift do for me? The
personal equation is all there is to
Thrift decide what you want and if
you want it badly enough and are will
ing to pay the price you probably ran
What are your wants? Do you
want a home and peace and content
ment, a few flowers, a bit of green
lawn, perhaps some fruit and vege
tables, 'the dancing fire light from the
glowing embers of the fireplace? Do
you want the thrill of cutting bond
coupons; do you desire to cash interest
or dividend checks, or do you prefer
to spend as you earn, jazzing along
life's highway? The decision must be
made. The Thrift way, you say? Very
well then, let us give heed to a fow
simple worth-while suggestions.
The first of these is to keep track
of all disbursements, in other words,
follow a budget plan. Through that
find out if you are wasting money; if
so, stop the leak.
The concluding thought I wish to
leave is that Thrift is not easy. It
is hard work to save unless you have
a regular systematic savings plan. If
you would get ahead, decide upon the
amount to be saved, then hank it every
payday, just the same as though It
were any other bill which must bo
paid. Following this plan for a few
months will so fix the habit that the
plan may be made effective without
inconvenience and with splendid re
sults. Thrift means frugality, ecou
omy. To be thrifty one must be will
ing to "pay the price" by practic ing
frugality and economy, and reaping
the rewards of saving and investing.
Mr. and .Mrs. (ilenn Kopp spent1
several days in Heppner with friends
and relatives during their recent holi

Mr. nnd Mrs. Karl Farnsworth, at
tended the funeral of Mrs. Frank
Farnsworth at Heppner on December

on Christmas eve.
Miss Helen Farley spent part of her
hohliay vacation with her cousins,
MNs Hary Farley and Kathleen Mono
lam at Heppner.
M. V. Logan and family left for
their new home at Condon on Sunday
Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Brown left for
Portland on Saturday January 3, for
a stay In their city home, during the
