SCHOOL SAVERS ARE
DOING SPLE.NDID wORK
IN ThRiFT uMiklAiGN
MANY SOCIETIES FORMED AND
MEMBERS ARE NOW BUSILY
WATCHING THEIR MONEY
Teachers and children are enthu
slastic over the new thrift spirit in
the school room, which has already
resulted not only in giving a novel and
practical interest to time honored sub
jects, but in the organization of ap
proximately 11,000 school sayinga
ciubs in the schools of this district.
lAst year the gross sales of Thrift and
War Savings Stamp. and TreasurY
Savings Certificates in the fifth dis
trict amounted to more than $2,315,000
during the school session, and it is
hoped that when the figures are com,
piled for the 1920-1921 session, an
even better record will be shown.
Thousands of penny and nickel- sav
ings books, text leaflets in thrift and
wall charts for showing the records of
savings clubs have been mailed out to
schools asking for them. Boys and
girls are learning to put their money
into government savings securities in
stead of wasting it, and in order that
they may not look upon savings as an
end in itself, and gain a false concep
tion of thrift as a form of stinginess,
they are encouraged to save for some
definite, worth-while object such, for
instance, as a college education or
Saving is only a third of the gaane,
however, for the youngsters earn muci
of the money they save and invest in
Thrift and Savings Stamps. Weeding
tobacco, running errands, clerking in
stores, washing dishes, raising vege
tables and live stock are some of the
callings in which school savings club
members engage during summer Taca
tions and after school hours, and keen
is the rivalry among them.
Even the smallest tots are taking an.
active part in the "Earn and Save"
movement, and patriotic teachers who
understand the value of thrift as an
element of good citizenship are devot
Ing their time and thought to making
it part of their educational work- and
are also encouraging the organization
of savings clubs by the children them
selves. They realize that they are
rendering a real service to the country
by teaching sound economic thought,
practical patriotism and prosperity.
GIVING SPLENDID AID
Postmastars are giving splendid
co-operation in the effort to create
new capital by increasing the num
ber of investors in goveramnent
savings securities. Approximately
300,000 letters have been ditributed
by them since the middle of Feb
ruary to patrons of their offices,
through post office boxes or by
means of the regular carriers, call
ing attention to the fact that the
man who saves even a dollar out~
of his income has to that extent
become a capitalist, and to the ab-1
solute safety of government securi
ties as investments for 8uch sav
ings. The postmasters are to be
congratulated not only for helping
to finance the government but for
making their influence felt in. be
half of the welfare of their own
communities. Distribution of these
letters means that the benefits of
saving and sound investment have
been brQught directly to the atten
tion of thousands of persons in
Maryland, the District of Columbia,
West Virginia, Virginia and the two
GROWING NUMBER OF MODEST
INVEStORS CONSIDERED SIGN
OF NATIONAL PROS
One of the most hopeful signs for
the future of this nation is the ever
increasing list of small investors. This
movement, which gained such great
stimulus through the issue of Liberty
Bonds, is now continuing with added
momentum. Having once tested the
joys of coupon clipping, having learned
the rewards of economy and thrift, the
man of small means has become an
Never before has the a-bsolute safety
of investment in government securities
been so coupled with opportunity for
sure profit as at the present time. Lib
erty Bonds, Treasury Savings Certifi
cates and Savings Stamps offer the
chance for every man, woman and
thild to join the ranks of the capitalists
and to do so without inconvenience or
danger- of loss.
Equally important is the effect on
the habits of the people. The
