The Blue And Gold.
Words by Prof. Morrow. I. Let others boast their colors bright, Which are so fair to see And raise a cheer so glad and free, With hearts of loyalty. But we will sing the blue and gold And give our best endeavor To raise on high our banner true, And O. B. S. forever. II. And may the fame of O. B. S. Grow fairer year by year— And sweeter grow the friendships dear That fill our hearts with cheer. Our banner and our friends so true! We ne'er shall care to sever The ties that bind onr hearts to you.

New Thrift Plan for 1920. "There are two impelling motives behind the savings movement: first to strengthen our national financial situation, and second, to promote indi vidual prosperity. To win the first objective we might "work and save" the national anthem. And indi viduals everywhere must hold their government securities and buy more, they must strive to produce more and more to invest. In doing his or her part to gain this national aim, the individual will gain the second objective. "The county chairman is an im portant cog in the organization ma chinery and these chairmen are be ing selected for the 1920 work. These chairmen, public spirited citizens, who are willing to assist in making individuals realize that upon their shoulders rests the real success of the savings movement. Individuals will be reached in groups schools, in u s i e s w o e n s o a n i z a i o n s churches and Farmers clubs and societies and labor unions. Nor will the importance of a local thrift com mittee be overlooked. "The local thrift committee is the most important element in the entire S a v i n s o a n i z a i o n U o n i s committee rest the resposibility of establishing the study and practice of thrift. The local thrift committee should hold a position of prominence similar to that of the board of alder men, the board of education or any other body directing the destinies of any great enterprise or movement. To transform an extravagant nation into a nation of savers, into a nation whose people think before they spend spend intelligently and invest wisely —that is the mission of the local thrift committee. "Banks, natural financial agents of the Treasury postoffices, where thrift stamps and war savings stamps and general information may be obtained: schools, training camps of tomorrow's citizens women, who spend three fourths of the nation's income the press, whose cooperation is so es sential to the onward sweep of the savings movement --all these agen cies and more, will, the government hopes, be amalgamated into a power ful army which will inspire economy encourage production, strengthen loyalty and smite the high cost of living." "At the banquet of life, there are tables for the Notables, but there are no tables for the Not-ables."
