improving it its she accumulated the
money to do so. An orphan niece, My

bringing the furnishings of two rooms,
inherited from her mother. The ar

MANY SOCIETIES FORMED AND

WATCHING THEIR MONEY
Teachers and children are enthu

the s3Jhool room, which has already
nsuitsd pot only in 'giving g novel and
practical interest to time honored sub

juoximately 11,000 rehool savings

Last year the gross sales of Thrift and
War Savings Stamps and Treasury
savings Certificates in the fifth dis
trict amounted to more than $2,315,000
during the school session, and it is
hoped that when the figures are com
piled for the 1920-1921 session, an
even better record will be shown.
Thousands of penny and nickel sav

wall charts for showing the records of
savings clubs have been mailed out to
schools asking for them. loys and
girls are learning to put their money
into government savings securities in
stead of wasting it, and in order that
they may not look upon savings as an

they are encouraged to save for some

callings in whic' school savings club
members engage during summer vaca

is the rivalry among them.
Even the smallest tots are taking an
active part in the "arn and Save"

understand the value of thrift as an
element of good citizenship are devot
