Without in any way detracting from
anything we have printed about thrift and
saving it is only fair to say that It is Just as
important to SPEND WISELY as it Is to
SAVE. If you are not getting along as
well as you think you should, possibly
you can find the reason by looking
through your cancelled checks.
A definite plan of SAVING with a
determination to SPEND WISELY will
surely bring gratifying results. , -. .

The Tuesday Lunch Club this week
observed American Education Week
by a visit to- the high school, where
luncheon was served the members of
the organization by the students of the
domestic science department Follow
ing ttie luncheon an assembly program
was rendered as follows: Singing of
"Star Spangled Banner" bv the stu
dents and guests; salute to the Flag ;
song, by entire audience ; songs, girls'
freshman glee club; piano solo, Harry
Isensee; reading of President Hard
ing's proclamation, City School Super
intendent Cannon: songs, bovs' elee
flub; reading of American's Creed and
an appeal to patriotism by National
Commander Owsley, of the American
Legion, J. W. Crites. principal of the
high school, who was chairman of the
day for the Lunch Club; contralto
solos, Miss Prudence Spiirht, and ad
dress by Capt. Geo. R. Wilbur, com
mander of the Oregon department.
Capt. Wilbur emphasized the need of
education among Americans, in order
that the government might properly
function. He cited the big things of
the program or the American Legion
the main one of which was to bring
about the spirit of Americana among
the children of who bear merely the
stampjof American.citizens. He quoted
from Nicholas Murray Butler, former
president of Columbia University who
said, "Ihe difficulties of a democracy
are trie opportunities or education.'
"Americanism." said Capt. Wilbur,
"is not real just because it is stamped
on a man s uacK, as it were, it is i
thing of the spirit, and men and worn
en must be made to Ben no it by feeling
it in mind and body. We have lots of
the kinds of Americasn we do not want
Intelligent Americans are eoine to be
called upon to stamp out radicalism
which does not believe in government
of any kind perhaps.
You know of a lot of ignorant men
over this nation. You may know of
those even in this town, who are no
more fitted to go to the polls and vote
than your dog. We must bear with
them, but we must endeavor to edu
cate them and bring their trend of
mind in accord with our own."
Capt. Wilbur declared that element
ary education was an absolute need.
He cited the announcement of the pro
gram as scheduled for Tuesday of Edu
cation Week, a day to be devoted to
patriotism. The program called for an
emphasis of the need of devotion to
one Flag expressed in one language
Capt. Wilbur declared that any child
who decided to give up his education
before teaching the high school was
discounting his opportunities of being
real, useful American.
Capt Wilbur declared that he hated
war. tie expressed the hope that the
boys and girls of the high school would
not have to face any such contingency
as the current generation in meeting
the emergency of the great war. He
declared a confidence, however, that in
case of war the young men of tne
school, backed by the young women,
would be ready. His declaration
brought a spontaneous applause from
I like to see the man or woman."
he stated, "who expresses a hatted of
war as he or she hates sickness. I do
not like that kind of citizen who de
clares such a hatred of war that he or
she is ready to declare an unmodified
opposition to all war. It is not a true
spirit of Americanism that so decries
war as not to be willing to make the
sacrifices of a righteous war."
the session was not without its fa
cetious moments. During the luncheon
one of the young women handed to Su
perintendent Cannon a jar, asking him
to open the jam and pass it. With his
mouth watering for a taste of the deli
cacy, he unscrewed the top. Suddenly
a huge green snake leaped across the
table. The young women had lined
the inside of the jar with real straw
berry jam. Oiled paper was placed
over the lining of sweets, and the
nake. built on springs like that in a
ack-in-tbe-box, was squeezed into the
jar. Ihe incident led lunch club mem
bers to ask Mr. Cannon if the school
taught the art of camouflage.
Ulticers of the lunch club elected for
the ensuing term were: I. K. Ache
son, president; E. C Smith, vice-president,
and W. M. Sylvester, secretarv
treasurer. The club's only guett for
the day was Willis Stewart former
grain dealer of Saskatchewan, here
with his family seeking a location.
