Your Spring Suit's Here
Don't let this Ground Hog weather fool you; spring
is on the way and Easter will be sitting on you before you
know it. It's time to think about that spring suit. I did
my part weeks ago and have a line of materials here that

The man at the ""desk,
whether the "Boss," the
issistant, the bookkeeper or
the clerk, must conserve his
mental and physical energy,
if he would reach the high
est in efficiency and results.
Reliable statistics show
that over 60 of all failures
in indoor avocations, re
quiring close eye and men
tal application is due to
waste of nerve energy
through the eyes.
Those who ignore innum

tired nature so kindly
vouchsafes, inexorably pay
the penalty. Eye endurance

"THE FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY"
The observance of Washington's birth
day recalls to us year by year the pa
fence and faith and courage with which
he lived the dark years of the revolu-
1 Aiary war. The dullest and most mat
ter-of-fact history of this period throws
a clear light upon these characteristics
of Washington. No man ever more tru
ly carried the fate of a nation upon his
shoulders. He Strove against disappoint
ment, disaster, lack of funds and mater
ial, inefficient or disaffected aids, Eng
lish propaganda at least as strong as
the German propaganda of the last few
years, and thru it all he looked forward
with high faith and courage, to the ul
timate destiny of the United States.
After the war a task of the utmost
difficulty confronted him in the rehab
ilitation of a country worn by war,
lacking financial credit at home and a
broad and disturbed by factional diff
erences. Here also his wisdom and pa
tience brought their results. It is di
rectly to him that we owe our lives of
comfort and liberty.
We are again in a time of reconstruc
tion after war. Our problems are diff
erent from those which confronted
Washington and his time, but no less
disturbing. It is for us to attempt to
meet these problems with his spirit of
foresight and patience and wisdom. So
shall we behold, as he did, a greater and
more beneficient America.
