The old-time Puritans are

Thanksgiving Day which
they inaugurated lives on with
their other ideals. Many of
us may on first thought be
lieve w,e have little to be
thankful for, but a glance at the war

may change our attitude.
Possibly it is because Americans still
struggle to maintain some of these
old-time Puritan ideals and notions
of right that they have escaped so
much of the misery in which the world

That control contains elements of advantages, but it is
also not without its evil features.
These bad features affect the consumer as well as the

Choice Is Yours
Isn't it better to pay as we go along? An insufficient rate today
means a much higher rate later, and makes impossible the kind of
