THE THREE CROSSES
. "POLICE PURSES"
Chicago A nation wide movement
to police our own pocket books and
develop courage of the customer In
front of the counter to refuse to bur
a article which he cannot afford, was
advocated today by Orrln C. Lester,
vice-director of the savings dlvlsloo
of the Treasury Department. Sprak
lag before the annual convention of
the International Lyceum and Chau
tauqua Association, In session here,
Mr. Lester said that the development
Of courage to refuse to buy and to do
It with as much grace and praise as
the clerk behind the counter names
the price, would make economy both
fashionable and respectable In Amer
ica. "It Is estimated," Mr. Lester said,
"that for most Incomes an average
of 29 to 40 per cent may be allotted
for food and from 10 to 20 per cent
for clothing. Why should not the
peovle of not too small Incomes start
a concerted effort to refuse to buy an
article of food or clothing that costs
more than a proper proportion of the
above percentages? A dollar Is only
half aa large as It was four and a
half years ago. We must either In
crease the lm of the dollar or adjust
our wants to the also It now Is.
Merchant Co operation
"In a movement of this character,
the people would be co-operating with
the merchants In a most practical way.
They would make It possible for the
merchant to render the sort of serv-'
Ice that he desires to render to bis cus
tomer and which he ran only render
as the customer exercises discretion
and intelligence In his buying and buya
only those things which bis Income

la discussing thrift and the need for
the wise use of money, Mr. Lester
anade especial appeal to the women of
America. He said:
"The government movement for sav
ing, conducted through the medium of
the sale and distribution of Thrift and
War Savings Stamps and Treasury
Savings Certificates, Is very closely con
nected with the question of the high
living cost The practical and lasting
anawer to this question lies more In
education than la Investigation. The
Federal Food Administration found
that per oent of products consumed
ia this country passes through the
hands of the women of this country.
"All the profiteers combined and all
the combines together cannot defeat
the people on this question when they
get Interested enough and Information
enough to act together. The thing 1
want to see In thfs connection Is a
'Refuse to Buy' movement among the
people of this country. A prominent
produce dealer of Sun Francisco said
the other day, "If the people ahould
take It Into their heads to slop eating
any one perishable food for five days,
they could ruin the market.'
"A Pacific Coast newspaper, dis
cussing this statement editorially, put
Ita finger on the cost of living remedy
when It said: 'It may be that profi
teering la at the bo torn of present
high prlcea, but a man cannot profiteer
If you refuse to buy his goods.'
"Regardless of investigations and
criminal prosecutions, we shall have
the problem of the high cost of living
ao long as we have an exlravuicaitt aud
thoughtless consuming public."
Mr. Lester concluded wtih an ap
peal for the speeding up of produc
tion, the elimination of useless waste,
consistent and rigid economy and sav
