Economy the Big Need Uncle Sam has come to the close cf a successful budgetry year without deficit. The experiment seems to have been successful, but a word of warning is necessary. Present esti mates seem to point to present fiscal year expenditures far exceeding the expected revenue. The President has urged the budget director to careful economy to avoid a deficit. Economy is effected only by the systematic saving of small sums. We are a na tion of spenders. To be successful, the government's policy must be re flected in every state, locality and household. So long as individuals are j lavish, so long as money seems to be ; so plentiful and of so little value to . them, the government will reflect this . recklessness in its expenditures. Economy must begin at the source of wealth and production. By individ ual economy we must give an example ! to the government. Grand Island , Neb.)

Million Viit Chief Shrine of Nation j More, than 1,000,000 persons make pilgrimages each year to Washing- j ton's home, Mount Vernon, the beau-j tiful Lincoln Memorial and the Wash-j ington .Monument, the latter being j the most popular of the three shrines among visitors to the national cap- i itol. j Visitors numbering 34,112 went during July to the top of the Wash-J ington Monument, located a few hun- ( tired yards south of the White House. 1 More than one-fifth of them clamber- ; ed up the 893 steps in order to see the ' memorial tablets on the various land- j ings inside the shaft. The remainder j rode to the top in the electric ele- j vator, which has a capacity of thirty- j five persons. More than 5,230,000 : people have visited the top of the 'monument since it was opened for observation purposes October 9, 1S88. : No entrance fee is charged. ! The Lincoln Memorial, recently J completed and opened to the public was visited by .11,383 persons during July. Located in Potomac Park, di rectly west of the Washington Monu ment, it is rather inaccessible for pedestrians; visitors usually go there by automobile. On a recent Sunday 2,000 persons were recorded as en-, tering the great building. It is rapid- . ly becoming a shrine for tourists. No j entrance fee is charged. j Washington's old home at Mount Vernon on the Potomac river in Vir-' ginia, sixteen miles from Washington, ' long has been the mecca of 'pilgrims' from every part of the world, who go ' by steamboat, electric train and auto-' mobile. Kept as nearly in its orig inal state as possible by the Ladies Mount Vernon Association, it is a de light to all Americans. During July approximately 29,000 persons visited Mount Vernon and- during the year admissions numbered 236,000. The proceeds of a 25 cent entrance fee help keep the estate in first class con dition. The house where Abraham Lincoln died, located opposite Ford's Theater at 516 Tenth street, Northwest, Washington, is another shrine visited by many tourists. It was bought by the United States in 1896 for $30,000 green.

This was done by an : emergency tariff act, which prohibited dumping here of foreign merchandise, 1 in order that the employers of Amer- ican workmen might continue the ; payment of them of wages with which they could purchase the pro- ducts of the farmer. "While applying this emergency tariff on the farm, the government j at once started out to ascertain and ' provide the fundamental remedy for I a general restoration and reconstruc- tion. Drastic action was taken to re duce government expenses." Government expenditures of $5, 528,000,000 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1921, Mr. Coolidge said, were reduced to $3,795,000,000 for j the fiscal year of 1922, while the ap propriations for 1923 have been fur ther reduced by $319,000,000. This, he said, represents an estimated re duction of $2,000,000,000 in two years. During the past year the na tional debt was reduced $1,014,000,-000. "This great reduction made pos sible a revision and reduction of taxation," said Mr. Coolidge.
