FOOD IS CURE
First Aid Treatment Splehidid Medi.
oine for Spirit of Unrest. How
Wa, 3avings Stamps Help.
President Wilson has asked for food
to stop the waVe of Bolshevism roll
Ing westward ont of Russia. No intel
ligent person doubts the value of food
as a first aid, but at bottom the secur
ity of our institutions rests upon the
working interest the people take in
Citizens having no interest in a gov
ernment, no economic interest in the
success of that government, are apt to
be the first victims of vicious propa
ganda or unbalanced political theo
rists. On the other hand men and
women who have invested in their
government either by way of conduct
Ing private enterprise under its pro
tection or through direct purchase of
government securities have something
at stake and desire to maintain stable
institutions. Such persons are not
necessarily reactionists. They may
be quite progressive and anxious for
reform where reform is needed.
Consequently the effective barrier
to Bolshevism in America today 1'
thrift and investment. The philosoph
must reach into the workshops of the
nation. It is reaching into. those work
shops and into the schoolhouses of the
nation in the form of the Thrift
Stamp and the War Savings Stamp.
When everybody in America is' buy
ing Thrift and War Savings Stamps as
a habit one won't hear much about
Bolshevism in America. It Is the
financial and patriotic duty of every
American who loves real liberty to
get the Thrift Stamp, habit NOW.

Eastern Business Men issue Warning

That it is a bad business proposi.
tion for any merchant to encourage
holders of War Savings Stamps to
exchange them for merchandise Is the
opinion of a group of eastern business
men, who recently discussed this
question at their annual convention.
"Such action merely helps fake pro
motors and dishonest brokers in their
effort to shake pubtlc confidence in

WORLD'S HISTORY IN RE.
SUME PROVES W. S. S.
One thing we know as we pursut
the history of antiquity, from times
when Noah was the news, of Baby
son's iniqtaiy, town through the days
when Caesar's ghost was hauntint
Brutus in his bed, is this. The spenders
shouted most, but nearly all of the
were bled. Whereas the lad wht
never flung sesterces to the Forun
crowd was never immaturely hung not
measured for an early shroud. This
bit of ancient sophistry has now ito
modern counterpart, and more and
-more it's 'borne on mae how splendid
is the saving art-the art of mind
ing one's affairs and watching litt!4
things increase. It rids the future ak
its cares, shows profit on our elbov
grease. Today when W. S. S. yov
read upon a' hanging sign, you know
the nian sell Thriftiness, a virtue
once quito hard to find. T do not than)
the war for much, but this I've learn
ed, and learned i proper, when some
one tries to make a "touch" a Thrit
Stamp makes an A-1 stopper.
Watch your nickels and the dollar
will take care of themselves.
