; SAYINGS MADE SAFE
FOR SMALL INVESTOR
Uncfe Sam Provides Protection for
Thrifty Citizen Who Wishes to
Lay Aside Part of Earnings.
This is the day of the small inves
tor. The war opened the eyes of some
50,000,000 Americans to the benefits
of investing in government securities;
it minimized to the same extent the
menace- of fraudulent promotions in
which many life's savings have been
sunk. War Savings Stamps are mak
ing investing safe for the small saver.
Every small investor should realize
that a dollar saved while money is
the cheapest commodity offered will
purchase twice as much of almost any
other commodity within four or five
years, so that, in addition to the in
terest that War Savings or other gov
ernment securities yield, the investor
really has earned 100 per cent in the
pu chasing power of the dollar saved.
Small sums certainly are worth sav
ing. Amounts that seem insignificant
soon pile up into figures that are im
A great French banker was once
asked the secret of French thrift, ana
he replied, '^Compound interest." Just
as constant waste, even in little
things, may change one's life from
success to failure, so the steady sav
ing of money will evantually bring
Independence, if not actual wealth.
There are very few persons who
cannot, without inconvenience, lay
aside 10 cents a day. Within ten
years one's daily savings of this in
significant sum will amount to $365.
in addition to $S0,36 compound in
terest, making a total of $445.36.
By saving 15 cents a day for ten
years, with interest compounded at 4
per cent, one will have the comfort
able sum of $668.18; 20 cents a day
will net $890.99. Save 50 cents a day
for ten years and there is $2.227.75.
A dollar a day will make a total of
$4,455.74 for the ten-year period.
All these figures are based on the
savings being put out at 4 per cent
compound interest. War Savings
Stamps yield more than 4 per cent.
LESSONS WILL TEACH
THRIFT IN SCHOOLS
Pamphlets Giving Outline Course May
Be Had by Writing War Loan
The War Loan Organization of the
Fifth Federal fteserve District at Rich
mond, Va., has just issued an outline
of a course of thrift for elementary
schools. It l3 designed especially to
meet the needs of teachers, beginning
with chapters for the smallest young
sters end continuing to those for pu
pils up to the eighth grade.
"Thrift in the Schools" contains
fascinating suggestions for the teach
ing of thrift to the Httle ones at the
"Mother Goose" age. Then for the
older children there are many other
ways of bringing the lesson home.
Geography, hygiene. English reading,
budcet making and problems in arith
metic adapt themselves to the teach
ing of thrift.
Besides these items the pamphlet
contains suggestions for morning
talks for all grades; tentative read
ing lists, with the names of the pub
lishers of books included; and, in each
chapter, a paragraph on the practice
The summary of the aims of the
leaflet will probably give the best idea
of the outline
1. To give the child a broad under
standing of the specific facts and
underlying principles of thrift.
2. To train the child in the habits
of conservation asd the wise use of
all his resources.
3. To create through the schools a
public sentiment, in favor of thrift and
economy, and through this public sen
timent, to cultivate the national
habit of thrift.
The War Loan Organization in
Richmond will furnish these leaflets
in any quantity, free of charge.

LEARNING TO MAKE

Wise Spending ii; Also Essential
According to War Savings
.Learning how to make money is
only half. It is learning how to
spend wisely and save judiciously that
Even saving does not necessarily
mean wise spending, since the pres
ent day offers so many equivalents for
our money. It is only by making a
careful, systematic study bf the house

There are items in every household
on which too much money is spent
The faot must be faced that if too
rauch is spent on clothing, for in
stance, less must be spent for other
necessities of life.
Saving, however, is the item that
Ehould be most emphasized. Poor
j houses are full of people who did not
have a savings item on their budgets.
Unemployment, sickness, old age and
many other demands necessitate a call ;
on the reserve fund, the lack of which
will result in suffering and want.
Every going enterprise is conducted

cessful institution it must also com
ply with this wise rule of economics,
itystematic household accounting will
make a home moro cheerful and pros
perous. Household accountiug alone,
however, will never return its full ben
efit until it is backed by an intelligent
One must consider the problem of
whether it is wiser to pay rent or to
build a home. In a large measure this
depends on local conditions as well as
the size of the income..
Amusement and recreation are es
sential in family life. The child and
the adult should have an allowance
for this, though the total be very
small, averaging from 4 to 5 per cent
of the income of the family.
The wise spender plans the needs of
tlie family so that the amount spent
in the "miscellaneous" items will be
as small as possible. This item should
not be a "catch al!" in home records.
MUCH JUNK FOUND BY
Thrift and junk business are boom
ing at Emporia. Va. "It keeps me
busy running to the post office to get
Thrift Stamps to pay for all the sal
vage tha*. ls coming in now," said
the proprietor of one of the junk
shops. "Where all the junk comes
from is a constant wonder. No one
would have believed that so much
1 stuff could have been hidden away in
I a town of this size."
Under the voluntary organisation
of "Mrs. W. B. Goodwyn, of Emporia,
ail the housewives of the tov/a h^ve
been conducting an organized salvage
campaign, in accordance with the
plans outlined by the War Loan Or
ganization of the Fifth Federal Re

local Junk dealer for Its full vahie in
Thrift Stamps. According to arrange
ments already made with most deal
ers in waste materials in the Fifth
District, wagons will call for Junk
wherever a "Salvage" card is dist
played. These cards have been dis
tributed all over the State.
Not only has Emporia found that
this organized campaign Js resulting
in a highly beneficial town "clean-up."
but a ?ource of economic welf&re
hardly known before has thus come
The salvage campaign has proved
so satisfactory In Emporia that junk
