URGED TO LEASE LINES.
Special Counsel Wnltcr L. Fisher
presented a plan to tlto council sub

which, ho said, would give Chicago

would bo made part of tho proposed
measure. He added:
"This arrangement would rcqulro
only a few changes In tho recently
defeated ordinance but they aro im

"Tho plan provides for tho city
taking over tho linos, after they havo
been consolidated, under a lense,
with an option to purchaso thorn at
any tlmo upon six months' notice.
"Tho city would nppolnt n board
of trustees to operate tho lines at
service cost. Tho present security
holders would bo guaranteed n fnir
return, whllo tho city would dictate
tho management nnd keep tho cost

"This would help keep fares down.
"If a lease to tho lty am bo

would remove many of tho objections

BUY FIFTH LIBERTY BONDS
AND BE SAFE.
About tho saddost thing In tho
world Is to undergo self-denial for
years, to save money nnd then to seo
tho "rnlny day fund" wired out by
tho failure of somo "wild cat" schemo
This happens every day. Widows
nnd hard-working men uro credulous
They listen to tho oily promises of
"get rich quick" promoters and hand
over their savings to slick salesmen
with "blue sky" securities promising
And when tho bolt falls out of tho
clear skv tho pitiful savings of years
disappear in an instant. "Tho
Bonanza Patroll Co. has gono up. Wo
aro ruined!" Then there is nothing
to do but begin llfo all over and at
a tlmo when earning capacity has be
gun to ebb and tho way Is thornier
than over before.
Whntovoi tho temptation may havo
been In tho past to do this thing,
thrro is no excuse for It now. Hun
dreds of thousands of experienced
publicity and investment men hae
boen ut work for nearly two years,
under the authority of tho American
Government, oducutlng millions of
peoplo In tho lino art of safe Invest

more peoplo aro saving money today
than ovor before In all tho history of
tho world. And more of tho peoplo
aro interested In the proper handling
of their savings accumulations. Lit
erally millions havo been taught to
buy Government bonds, and thoy have
learned to buy Thrift and War Sav
ings Stamps as tho best possible way
to prevent tho waste of fugitive
quarters and dimes.
