Yet become members in the ranks of
this wide-awake organization. Will it
keep up the snappy pace with which it

A feature of the school savings move

federal reserve district, Uncle Sam's
Army of Savers was organized last
ppring, with youthful "officers" and
"prfvates" whose insignia buttons and
"commissions" were awarded by the
Savings Division of the Treasury De
partment. Membership in the Army
may be obtained by investment in one
25-cent Thrift Stamp, and future pro
motiors in rang depend upon the num
ber of additional stamps bought. The
fact that before last session closed
twenty-five General's "commissions'
and buttons were awarded in this dis
trict to'children owning 20 War Sav

Summer banks are being opened, and

The fundamental characteristics of
Government Savings Securities are
that they are safe beyond question,
~easily convertible into money, and not
subject to market fluctuations. Such
merits give these securities a distinc
tive investment value.
The securities are safe because they
are g-uaranteed by the United States
Treasury Department. They are easily
convertible into cash, because they
may be redeemed at local post offices
or from the Treasury Department at
Washington, and they are not subject
to market fluctuations because the
Treasury guarantees the price, which
increases by a fixed amount-in the
case of the interest-bearing securIties
There are three kinds of Govern
ment Savings Securities: The 25-cent
Thrift Stamp and the $1 Treasury Sav
ing Stamp-neither bearing interest;
the interesting-bearing War Saving
Stamp, and the interest-bearing $25,
$100 and141,000 Treasury Savings Cer
The 25-cent Thrift Stamps and the
$1 Treasury Savings Stamps are is
sued to help people save enough to
buy War Savings Stamps, and these
latter, when enough have been bought,
may be converted into registered
Treasury Savings Certificates.
The $5 War Savings Stamps cost
rom $4.12 in January to $4.23 in De
cember, increasing in value one cent
each month. The value of the $25
Treasury Satings Certificate Increases
five cents a month, that of the $100
~certificates twenty cents a month, that
of the $1,000 certificates $2 a month.
Like War Savings Stamps the certif
icates are redeemable at their full
face value upon maturity; that is in
five years from the year of purchase.

ROOM FOR SINGLE WOMEN.
Room for the single woman!
There is a world call for her. Not
because of any political rights she
may possess, not on account of anyL
self-assumption on her part, nor be
cause of any determination she maj
have made to push to the front; but
because there is a real need of her,
and a plac for her, no matter which
and a place for her, no matter which
We say this call has come to the
unmarried woman of our day, for
the reason that she has proved her
self worthy of it. In the time of
the world's greatest stress, no service
task so severe that she was mt t rea
dy to undertake it. No prison so
dark that she did not cheer it -by
her presence. No soldier boy so
lonesome that she did not chasce
away his tears with her smiles. The
world is richer by reason of the
work done by these heroes of the
Cross, and one of the brightest spots
in &in otherwise gloomy story is the
tale which tells of their untiring de
votion to the cause of humanity.
And iow the war is over. These
young women have come back quiet
ly to take their places in any place,
and in every place, where they are
needed. The national government
opens wide its doors of service to
them. Offices, professions of all
kinds, -and places of business of ev
ery name and nature summon therm
to do the best they can, to give all
that is truest and noblest in them
to help and to cheer and to bless
their fellow men.
Nor is it always out where the
light shines brightest that the young
women of our day are needed. In
a million homes they are doing ear
nest, patient, untiring work that
somebody may be happy. They feei
that here is a call for them just as
clear as that which summons their
sisters to more public service, and,
in this they are right. To make a
home happier, to lead a buy or a girl
out into fields of greater usefulness,
to do the little everyday things that
few ever know anything about, but
which need to be done if the world
is to advance along a shining way,
these are things no less blessed than
are the things we sometimes cali
much more important. God bless our
sisters of the single heart and the
The youngsters who are now re
turning to their book work ought to
be inspired this year to develop bet
ter school spirit. Colleges and pri
vate schools build up a tremendous
prestige as '' result of this senti
ment. Every college student is in
cited to- give his -efforts and his en
thusiasm to boosting the reputation
and success of his institution in ath
letics, in scholarship and every stu
dent activity. -
Many Uigh - schools develop this
spirit, but in others there is little
loyalty to the- school and* its under
taldngs. A school with a fine spirit
of loyalty gives a town a wide spread
reputation, and gets better support
from its taxpayers, ana its pupils
.obtain greater- advantages.
Every pupil in Winneboro should
realize that he is a partner in t
enterprise of creating high class
schools, and keep up the record of
