Mr. Henry P. Davison, chairman of
the War Council of the Red Cross, has
eaid that if the government should
offer him a check for $500,000,000.00
'or a check for only $100,000,000.00
and the work of the women of the
Country, he would not even look at
the larger check! He knew what he
was saying, too, as the magnificent re
sponse of the women of America has
shown. Never before did woman
shine as now; never before did she
bo show that but for her aid the worst
would have occurred. And the end Is
The calls aro endless. Refugees
have no underclothes, no stockings,
little to protect themselves against
the coming winter winds. The women
of America are going to furnish these
clothes, these stockings, are going to
see to it that no French, no Belgian,
no Italian child, or mother, shivers
into a bitter grave before next spring.
The Surgeon General of the Unit
ed States is asking for thousands of
sweaters, for hundreds of thousands
of socks, and for hundreds of thous
ands of articles of all kinds! Eng
lish calls ring over the water and the
American women remember what the
English fleet did for us they do not
forget! French women, whose soula
are bowed with grief, are listening for
those sweetest of all sounds, the click
of needles that mean warmth, and the
snipping of scissors that me am
clothes for the children. -
No babies in the history of the
world have been better guarded than
the American. Now all the skill, all
the tenderness, all the love of Amer
ican mothers finds limitless oppor
tunities to help babies who but for
them would have nothing at all!
New England alone has three mil
lion dollars worth of material wait
ing to be made up and sent! Now is
the time for a hearty pull together, to
show the world that we really under
Is as perfect as Dental
Science and human skill
can make it.

KEEP YOUR PLEDGE
The statement below issued
partnieiit shows that on November 1 Vermont ranked 14th among the
States in pales of War Savings Stamps.
While Vermont still leads New England and the Eastern States,
we are entitled to a much better position if those Vermonters who
have pledged to buy stamps will complete their purchases. All the
States are making a tremendous effort in the last days of the year to
improve their standing and unless Vermont braces up the State will
be far down the list on December 31.
Vermont has a proud record so far in all war activities. We
mustn't fall down on this last job. Fulfill your pledges at once, buy
more if you can and keep Vermont near the head of the list.

Can't touch the man with the "saving habit."
We don't mean the miser he is one of the worst
sufferers in the spirit.
The sensible, prudent man who lives within his
income and regularly lays by a little of his earnings,
can defy war times.
The best way to get the "saving habit" is to
start a savings account with the Island Pond Nation
You'll take pride in watching it grow to pro
portions where it will work for you.
Yours for mutual prosperity.
