Two Great Lessons
One h the joy of self denial the sense of real thrift. Hi little investment of
25 cent may mean at much to him at the Erst ten dollars you ever earned or the
first thousand you ever invested.
He can be made to help wonderfully in developing him into substantial
citizen. His early habit of sensibly saving will do as much a any other thing to start
him oo the straight road to success.
The other lesson is that of patriotism. He has learned "to do his bit." A
country worth living in is a country worth fighting for. He is too young to fight,
but he wants to help.
While you rejoice that he cannot go to the front, teach him to help end this
war by loaning hit uvings to hit government,
Thrift and patriotism two great lesson at one tins. AD so easy. Just tell
him to get a Thrift Stamp. and with it a Thrift Card. Then help him add to it
until he hat enough for a War Savings Stamp. With that he will get a War Sav
ings Certificate and hit savings begin to draw interest.
If you will show him how money breeds money, he will be all the better for it.
And every penny he saves and lends may help to save tome other mother' boy
may go a long way toward bringing peace to all
