in connection with the Thrift Cam

glad to receive brief essays on the
subject for publication. It was under

The Crime of Not Being Thrifty.
Onco there was a poor rice planter.
He worked hard every day from morn
ing till night. When the harvest time
came he harvested the rice and put
them in the barn. When he saw that
he had harvested much rice he made
a great feast. He bought a big pig
costing fifteen dollars. He bought
boxes of soda water and many other
things. Then he invited his friends
and with merry hearts they ate it all.
When tho bills came for the things
that he bought he had no money and
so he gave all the rice. Now he was
once more a poor man and he had to
work hard again.
Once there was a Filipino man. He
worked hard and he received a bonus
of $200.00. Instead of putting the
money in the bank he kept all in his
tfocket. He went to a store. He bought
two silk shirts and many other expens
ive things. He spent it lavishly for a
time, but at last all his money was
gone and he had to go back in the cane
fields to earn his daily bread.
These two illustrations will give us
a good view of being too extravagant.
If both men were thrifty, they would
not need to work so hard now as they
did in the beginning.
Toku Yoshizawa, Grade 5,
A man from Lihue told us that it
is a good thing to save. So now I
have made up my mind to save. A
man had plenty of money and he did
not put the money in the bank. One
Day he went out and left the money
home. Some one heard about it and
he went an stole the money. " When
the man came home the money was
gone. He had to work very hard to
got money again.
I am going to put my money in the
bank and save what I can. When I
have my money I must not Bpend it
foolishly. I am eleven years old. I
will listen to my teacher for she says
it is a good thing to save.
Mary Robinson, Grade 6.
A man told me about Thrift. My
teacher told me about Thrift. I am
going to make up my mind to save
my money. I am not going to spend
my money foolishly. I am going to
spend my money wisely. I am ten
There was a man. He had three
hundred dollars. He went to the
store and bought two silk shirts.
After one week his money was gone
and he was poor again.
Bessie Ako, Grade 5.
My teacher told us to save our
money. I am not -going to spend my
money foolishly. I am going to spend
my money wisely. My teacher told us
that this week is the Thrift week. I
am eleven years old.
A man told us that the place for our
money is in the bank. Nobody can
steal the money. I am a girl. The
man also told us that there was a
Chinese man and a Chinese woman.
They had a patch of rice. First-they
were very poor. When they sold the
rice they became rich.
There was a man who went to work.
When he got his pay, he went to the
store and bought him two silk shirts.
It cost him $10 a piece. A few days
more he was poor again.
When my mother gives me some
money to buy some candies, I must
try and save our money. I must try
and put some money in the bank nd
not to buy things foolishly.
Vera Chong, Grade 5,
Cattle are fattened for slaughter by
being overfed and not allowed to ex
ercise. Many men and women pre
pare themselves for slaughter by
voluntarily adopting the "stall fed
life," says the United States Tublic
Health Service. Don't overeat and
take plenty of healthful, outdoor exercise.
