Economy Column A nation at war makes three dis tinct demands on its Individual citi zens?sacrifice, service, and economy. AU sacrifice. Some sacrifice their own Uves or Uves dear to them In actual military service; others sacri fice material prosperity, and all sac rifice personal comforts and pleasures which seemed the necessities of peacetimes. Sacrifice la easy because sll meet it together snd each Is aware of the participation of other?. All serve Most forms of service Involve group activity, whether it be In the army. In Red Cross or other philanthropic work, or in active In dustrial service. No individual grudges service because all individuals give it. But economy is harder. Economy I? the must personal and the moat difficult form of patriotism. It is hard, it is monotonous. It is un spectacular, and Involves all the firm qualities demanded by sacrifice and ?enrice without the inspiration of co operation and recognition. ??? serve and sacrifice together; we economize alone. The family is the primary and most important social group, and in Amer ica, as the result of custom, the woman head of the household ia the disbursed of fund??the ?pender of the family income. Here is one of the newest and best definitions of economy which the housewife would do weU to ponder: "Economy ia not the cessation of spending. Rather It Is the elimina tion of those fsneiful and wasteful expenditures which add to the cost of living without adding to its joys." The Immediate result of eliminating the cost of non-esseatiala is the ap pearance of a surplus fund, a safety margin for use when emergency shall produce an essential not otherwise provided for. For instance. In peace tiroes we consumed five pounds of sugar per person esch month. At wsr prices that sugar coat SO cents. Now we are reduced lo a sugsr ration of two pounds esch month?an Involuntary saving of X cents. That surplus 30 cents saved and not simply diverted to another expense channel repre sents real economy. In the ?ame way we have reduced the family expenae for meat, and for white flour, and for candy. The money saving effected will be as much a patriotic service a* the food saving?but It must be sctually saved snd Invested in bonds or thrift stamp* If it I* economy and not simply transferred expense.
