Thrift Stamps appeal to everybody,
because everybody loves a ''sticker."
Did it ever occur to you when 7011 '
aro trying to get ahead a bit finan
cially, that It isn't so much what you
earn that counts its what you save.
The head of the household has his
salary boosted a bit occasionally and
the household celebrates the event
with duo ceremony. But'ttie trouble
Is that it usually goes on celebrating
in the way ot added extravagencea ,
not necessities, mind you ;that Boon
eat up the "raise" and some .more .
along with It.
Uncle Sam knows this to be a fact. .
Ho knows that tho American 'homo
