My Sailor Boy
I did not ask for strength to let him
go
(Although he seemed so young
still but a child;)
When down the street, blue-clad
they filed. ,
More than my life went with them
through the snow,
And yet dear God you saw I
smiled, I smiled.
But oh! how shall I pass each day his
door
Where still the shadow of his pres
- . ence lingers;
How touch the little things he loved
to touch,
Still warm and vibrant from his
dear, brown fingers ? ,
How tread the silent floors his glad
feet trod,
Day after day unless you help" me

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser
vices, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov
ernment for war purposes. Ani. if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon
ey to your Government.
