Washington heard the call and heeded.
It was the national capi al's call to
arms. Everybody volunteered. There
was no age limit ii either direction.
Nobody was rejected because of defec

nus or housemaid's knee. The big army
miobilized overnight. It armed itself
broomsticks in hand, brushes ditto,
scrub-cloths, soap, water, rakes, pa int
cans and buckets !
No Lack of Preparedness.
Washington (lid not get its orders
from the White house or from the big

TO THE PUBLIC:
THE MEN AND WOMEN AND BOYS AND GIRLS.
In these days of patriotic service we should "Keep the Home Fires
Burning"-the fires of community life and spirit and efhciency, and all the
activities that promote cheerful and pleasant and healthful surroundings in
American homes and communities. Cleanliness, Thrift and Civic Pride are
the essentials for homes and towns beautiful, and safe from the ravages of
disease and fire and storm and sun.
HELP CONSERVATION AND PRODUCTION.
It is our patriotic duty to promote conservation and production in every
possible way-to conserve civic ideals as well as health and property; and to
increase commercial and industrial, as well as food production, that all may
be enabled as well as urged, to "save for our country's needs."
This cause is too big for any mere "week." The need is too immediate
for any delay. The work comprisea too many piases of community effort for
any single group or interest to assume its conduct.
An immediate and continuous and thorough campaign that represents and
enlists every interest arid organization, every man, woman and child in the
community, in a crusade of Cleanliness, Thrift and Civic Pride and their
practical application in every way, is needed.
THIS YEAR "FOR THRIFT'S SAKE"
CLEAN UP AND PAINT UP.
Such a crusade is annually conducted in 7,000 cities and towns enlisted in
the nation-wide Clean-Up and Paint-Up Campaign, that reduced Cincinnati's
fire Insurance cost over $160,000 in one year, that planted nearly a million
"Thrift Gardens" in the nation last year, and that, by a score of other prac
tical and popular activities, has made thousands of communities and hundreds
of thousands of homes "better places in which to live."
The co-operation of the whole community is necessary, from this moment
and throughout the campaign; and we especially urge the utmost effort in
giving the campaign a good start by making the Opening Week a complette
success, a big community event. This will be
