The state-wide, house-to house
thrift campaign has been post­
poned from the week o f March
5, to March 19th to 23rd.
This campaign is not to be a
drive for money.
It is to lie a campaign of edu­
cation. A campaign to tell every
Oregon householder just what
Thrift Stamps are, what War
Savings Stamps are, where they
can be bought, and why they
should be bought.
Ten thousand volunteer work­
ers will strive to plant a thrift
germ in every home in Oregon.
The germ will do the rest.
With the financial difficulties
of the Estacada Boy Scout Corps
a thing of the past, thanks to the
generous response to their Tag
Day sales we would suggest
that the scouts do a little real
scouting and locate the boy or
boys in Estacada, who are now
passing through
a n unmoral
development, resulting in the
scribbling of filthy words and
pictures about town.
Contrary to reports that had
been current in this section, to

Schools, was one of the survivors

A. work at San Antonio. Texas.

mittee of Oregon has requested

and Hearsay.”

One German Army has already
occupied America. The invisible
host of Spies is everywhere.
Swat the fly! Spot the Spy!
Spies feed on little crumbs of
conversation, little glances of ob­
servation. Starve them out!
Benedict Arnold was an Am er­

George Washington. Three cow­
boys caught the spy whose papers
exposed Arnold.
