St. Louis. Teaching the pennies
to take care of thenmelves Is one
of the salient motives behind the
thrift movement and War Savings
propaganda, according to Hon. Charles
M. Hay of the speakers' division of the
war savings campaign for Missouri,
Mr, Hay represented Callaway County
in the Forty-seventh General Assem-
In a recent address before the mem'
bers of the St. Louis Chamber of Com'
merce. Hay declared there had never
been a finer opportunity afforded to
the people to sacrifice, be patriotic
and save at the same time. He ex
plained the working of the War Sav
ings Certificate, in which people are
taught thrift and at the same time con
tribute to one of the important factors
in winning the war.
Forget Value of Pennies.
During the course of his remarks
Hay asserted the average business
man, such as those who are members
of the Chamber of Commerce, forgets
the value of the penny, the nickel and
the quarter, and advised them to stop
and think a minute of what the small
coin means In the savings of the
"I realize that we rebel against the
doing of small things, sue as the sav
ing of pennies, nickels, dimes and
quarters. It's the big thing, the heroic
thing, that grips us, but if we are to
win this war and find ourselves real
masters of the world we must first
master ourselves our desires, our
ease, our appetites, our passions, our
indulgences. We must eliminate non
essential things, harmful things in our
personal and business life; we must
organize ourselves for efficiency. So
far our work of giving in the war ha?
been somewhat of an ecstasy and we
have been carried away by the excite
ment, the novelty, the fashion of it.
We'll soon have to work and give out
of our sorrow, and hardship, and, may
hap, out of our extremities.
"But, remember, the more saving we
are now in the midst of plenty the less
heavy the burden in the later days. If
during the year 1918 every man, worn
an and child of America would save 6
cents per day the entire issue of the
$2,000,000,000 War Savings Certificates
would be taken up. The purchase of a
Thrift Stamp per week by every per
son would make up $1,524,900,000 of

"The first step necessary for the
establishing of peace the sort of
peace the world must have if life on
this earth' is to be worth while is ab
solutely and unconditionally to get the
"But we can't get the Kaiser by
mere words. These we have tried
through long months, and years before
we entered the war. Now we must
win with the cruel weapons chosen by
those who began this war. To win we
must have men; men of blood, mind,
soul; men strong in body, true in
heart, loyal in spirit; men worthy to
live; men ready to die. These, by the
millions, have laid their lives upon
their country's altar.
"To equip and maintain them we
must have money, money by the bil
lions. That money must come from
every quarter, It must come from
every pocket in the land. In the pres
ence of men who stand before the
crudest, bloodiest war demons the
world has ever known and say, 'Here
is my breast, pierce it if you wiH ; here
is my blood, let it if you will; I dedi
cate my blood, my heart, my life, my'
all, to the democracy of my country
and of the world' in the presence of
these, I say, every man left behind in
the security and comfort of his home
and his office should say, 'Here's my
I pocket, go through it; here's my bank
account, check on it I dedicate my
savings to the democracy of America
and of the world.'
