Atta Boy! Put Him Out of the Gamo
FOREIGN BORN ARE
NOW TAUGHT THRIFT
Couf^o In Amerionization Is Enlarged
So as to Include Special Lossion
on Saving Habit
Thrift is now one of the subjects
being taught to thousands of foreign
born workers who are attending
Americanization classes throughout
the United States in factories, shops,
churches and night schools.
' Aa a majority of the attendants at
these classes speak but little or no
English, the study of language consti
tutes one of the principal subjects
taught, a half hour drill being held
at each session. The method was de
vised for the National Y. M. C. A. and
is published by that organization. The
lessons are short, consisting of about
twenty simple sentences on everyday
matters, and a clans is taught by re
peating one sentence at a time after
the teacher, who Illustrates lt with
motions and objects
"I look at my watch," says the
teacher, who takes out his own
watch The class repeats this In
chorus, then Individually. The next
sentence deals with numbers and the
telling of time. All sentences are link
ed together, and each teaches at least
one new word with connectives. At
the end of the lesson lt is shown to
the class in printed form on a chart.
At the request of the Treasury De
partment, a special thrift lesson deal
ing with War Savings Stamps has
been written and is now in the hands
of American secretaries of the Y. M.
C. A. all over the country. This
lesson ls an excellent Illustration of
the method by which thousands of
foreign-born workers are now learning
English, and lt ls as follows:
Has-John has some money
Puts-'He puts lt in a stocking.
' Says-Jim say?: "It is not safe"
Answers-John answers: "No? I will
Looks-He looki for his money.
Is 8tolen-The money is stolen.
Saves-John saves more money.
Asks-He asks: "How can I keep
Says-Jim says: "See this, John."
Shows-Jim shows him a book of
War Savings- Stamps.
Says-John says: "Where did you
Buys-John buys some War Sav
Puts-He puts them in a book.
Says-^ohn says: "This is safe and
Buys-John buys more stamps.
Says-He says: "America is setfe
.nd so is my money."
THE LUCKY THREE
Only throe men out of every hun
dred have a savings account at the
age of forty-five, ninety-seven per cent
of them losing their entire savings
la some reverse.
Aro you taking a ehance, thirty
three to one, on being one of those
ninety-seven? Or are yon making sure
that you will answer "present" when
the roll of three is called? Ita just
as easy to be in this latter class as
in the first-If you think. Ninety
seven men ont of every hundred don't
tMak, saving spasmodically, If they
save at all, and invosting in securities
of which they do not know the value.
Government securities are absolute
ly safe, pay a high rate of interest
and ar? easily obtainable in small de
j nominations. Save regularly and
oaf ely, and you will he sure to be
anaoag the lucky throe.
