Every business Is either thrifty or
unthrifty. If thrift governs, then
.there will be accurate knowledge of
Costs, sound finance, far-seeing policy,
the best use of labor and materials,
with intelligent creation of a money

Thrift goes far beyond the exocu
tive office, and so does lack of it. A
thriftily managed business will have
steady, skillful employees, working in
pleasant surroundings, with every ad
vantage in the way of equipment, and
'every advantage in earning power.
The unthrifty 1 usiness is too familiar.
It attracts chiefly the driftwood among
workers. Unpleasant surroundings
and poor equipment make work drudg

Since the Thrift Stamp and War
Savings Stamps came into existence
there has been a wide development of
this thrift movement for employees,
as part of the management of a thrifty
business. Employers know that thrift
decreases labor turnover and also in
creases output. The worker who
saves is not worried by debts. He
thinks well enough of his job to set
tle in the community, buy a home,
raise a family.
War Savings Stamps offer the best
medium for group savings in business
organ izat ions. Thousands of savings
clubs or societies formed during the
'war to help finance the government
have been found so valuable that
thousands more will be organized. The

tihe loan. The details of the arrange
ment provide that all county officers
