13 If Reg. has a car, after supper they
3 all jump into It. It doesn't make any
difference where they go. so they 50.
3 . There is fresh air, and chango of scene
1 and easy rest for a tired body, and re-
M laxation for a tired, busy, planning
I mind. It costs oh, well, what does a
car cost? Take Reg.'s own estimate
and call it $500 a year. Suppose it iq
used for evening rides two hundred
and fifty evenings in the year that is
$2 a ride. There are Mary and Reg.,
and little Mary and litttlc Reg. and
for a 50 cent piece each they have a
nice long ride, fresh air. plenty of
recreation o the kind that made the
name re-creation Is it worth it?
Thousands of loyal Americans aie
planning their vacations this year as
thev hac never planned before. To
give them up? Not if they are sensible,
but to mr.ke them less expensive and
less pretentious. Reg. has wanted Tor
vcars to take wife and babies to the
Grand canyon or the Yellowstone, or,
if he lives "west to Washington or At-,
lantic City. 1
But this year Reg. and Mary talk n
over and say. "No, McAdoo is trying
'to run railroads for Ihe w:(r. Every
useless Journey is one less chance for)
a ton or something to get 'somewhere j
in France.' Let's not go this year!"
But Reg. has too much sense not 10
take some sort of a vacation and lie
knows the wire and kiddies must have
it. too. So he has the choice of a near
by resort dr the car. But the cost of
the car is going Into Liberty bonds.
Ergo, choose the nearby resort.
Item, railroad fare, four people, botli
ways, $50.
Item, two weeks' board, four people,
Item, new clothes for four people
Item, incidentals, amusements, $50.
Total, four people, two weeks vaca
tion, $420, or about $50 per week per
Almost as much as if they had kept
a car for a year!
With the car and a camping outfit,
the vacation could bo made for half
the board money, for a tenth the
clothes money, and for the ' samei
transportation, money unless Reg. j
traveled two thousand miles or more
in "his two weeks ho would hardly use
$50 worth of gas and oil. And as for
the fun well, only those who havo
tsied It know!
Perhaps Reg. has a war garden. A
real war garden, you know, not a
pocket handkerchief of a lawn filled
with radishes, but an acre, anyway,
with corn and beans and peas and
cabbages and lettuce and asparagus
and rhubarb and cauliflower and chard
and all those things. Congress gave
Reg. a whole extra hour a day for just
that war garden. And while Reg. can
not do much with an acre in an hour,
four determined workers can do 1 !
great deal lh that time if they try. . '
il It Reg. gives up hfs car what be
comes or his hour?
And does anyone think Mary and
I the kids' can do the work alone?
I Suppose Reg. earns a thousand dol
lars a month, working from nine to
five, with an hour for lunch. That is
seven hours, twenty -six" days in the
month, or 182 hours altogether. That
makes his time worth more than $50
per hour. If the car saves him half an
hour a day in time for 300 days in the
year, and costs him $500 a year to run,
he actually loses $250 if he go?s with
out it. If it saves him an hour a day j
, in time, he could put its cost into
' 1 Liberty bonds twice over and still
J j break oven with the game as he is
I (j playing it, doing without the car, and
i putting the "saving" In a bond.
Out of his five to ten thousand a
!$ ) year Reg. buys Liberty bonds and sub-
!! scribes liberally to every war cause.
lM if he spends five hundred a year for
'J the car, ho helps maintain the scale of
m living that helps make him a five to

)fl change, and the children spend their
j!l evenings in the streets or at the plc-
i' j ture shows, he may pay a good part
. I of that five hundred In necessary doc-
tor's bills.
H Even if Reg. j3 a weather proof and
work proof individual, that is no guar
; antee that his wife and the kids are
jif built the same way.
, t Perhaps Reg. is patriotic to the ex-
3 ?! tent that he won't give himself the
1 i'.J chanco to back-slide in his pralse-
B worthy but mistaken "saving" plan. So
m instead of laying the car up he sells it.
He puts the result of the sale Into
I M bonds and religiously saves up his gas
I I and oil money and puts that into a
I! jlj bond too. Meanwhile, the chap who
I M bought it is able 'to put just that much
f jij less into bonds, and the money he
) M might save for his country is spent on
! i; the gas and oil Reg. is saving. Agreed.
that Reg. has the satisfaction or think
ing he is doing something for nib
country but he isn't.
There are Tour million cars, let us
say, running around in cjrcles in the
U. S. A. Does it make the slightest dif
ference to Uncle Sam whether there
are Tour million Smiths pr four mil
lion Joneses or four million Robinsons
running those cars? It does not. If
evorv one of the four million should
be jacked up and every dollar of gaso
line moncv and oil money and repair
money saved, would Uncle Sam be the
gainer? He would not.
For there has been no Liberty loan
which has not been oversubscribed.
There has been no appeal for Red
Cross money which has not been more
than met, and promptly.
The Y. M. C. A. has not had to
struggle for its war chest fund
There is no lack of money to pay
national taxes.
- There is every need for economy of
material, of rood, of useless luxury.
Every dollar which goes into a dia-l
mond, or .1 country house which s .
closed half the year, or into traveling
In railroad cars for the sake of travel
ing, might be better employed. Every
scrap of food thrown away, every par
ticle of wasted meat or flour, might bo
better used to feed a soldier. But it i.
the thing, not the representative ofj
labor (money), which is to be saved. 1
We must save money, too. But wo
must save luxury money, not necessity
money. Here is the real answer.
The man who can truthfully cast up
all his accounts with his motor carj
and say that it Js purely and solely a.
luxury, has no business with it in war
lime. It is unpatriotic, unnecessary.)
unwise yes, indecent, to keep iL
But the man who owns a car which

Ibis wife and children, or his friends
if he is not so blessed, which enables
him to do belter work, and do it quick

which is in his life as much as integral

or his tireless cooker that man is
mistaken in his patriotism if he gives

To "save" money means to do with
out something, and therefore have
that much labor (money) available for
someone else to do something with.
To "save" by doing without thos
things which enable us to labor is re
fusing food to the goose that lays the
golden egg, it is denying pasture to the

Industrial conditions as a result of
the war have causetl the United States
Highways council to issue a bulletin
curtailing highway and street con
struction throughout the United States
forthe year 1919. Bulletin No. 1 reads
in part as follows:
Sec. 1. All proposed highway, street,
culvert and bridge construction, re
construction, and maintenance in
volving: (a) the issuance of bonds;
(b) the use of rail or water transpor
tation; (c) the use of coal or oil as
fuel; or, (d) the use of cement, brick,
asphalt, oil, tar, crushed stone, or
steel, (also sand and gravel whore
shortage exists) as highway material,
should first be submitted for approval
to the United States Highways council
through the appropriate state highway
department. Forms havo been prepar
ed for this purpose and a supply placed
with each state highway department.
No manufacturer will furnish any road
building material until the project has
boon approved by the United State3
Highways council.
Sec. 6. The council will shortly be
gin, In co-operation with the office or
public roads of the department of ag
riculture, and' the state highway de
partments or tho several sta.les, the
preparation or a program of road and
street construction, reconstruction and
maintenance throughout the United
States for tho working season of 1919.
The purpose of the program is to ob
tain an approximation of the charac
ter and amount of street and highway
work deemed essential in 1919 to
gether with an approximation of the
amount and character of financing re
quired, the amount and character of
the vario'us materials entering into the
work, the extent to which rail and
water transportation will be involved
and the probable demands upon tho
labor supply. The preparation of the
program in each state will be directed
by the state highway department, and
I will cover all state, county, township
j and municipal highway and street

Sergeant C. Duncan McLcod of the j
i 19th Co. G. S. 1. U. S. army, at present
j in camp at Fort Logan. Colo., and for-1
jmerly recruiting sergeant In tho city j
of Ogden and known to many friends
I here, writes to tell that they are quar
lantincd at Fort Logan on account of
I the prevalence of Spanish "flu", which
he says brought down sixteen men of
I his own company' yesterday and they
I were immediately sent over to the hos-1
I pital for treatment. j
During Sergeant McLeod's stay in j
Ogden a great many parents having !
sons in the service asked him Tor a I
copy or "Kitchener's Ten Command-1
menls" and although Mr. McLeod has
not been able to get hold of any moro
printed copies, he sends the only copy
i he has to be printed in tho Standard.
j Herewith it follows, and will be read
with great interest by all interested
in the morale of the troops:
1. Keep your eyes at the ready, youi
ears at full cock, and your mouth al
Jtho safety notch; for it is your solierly
duty to sec and hear clearly; but as
la rule you should be heard mainly in
j the senlral challenge or tho charging
cheer. Obey orders first, and IT still
alive, kick afterwards, ir you have
been wronged.
2. Keep your rifle, or fun and your
accoutrements clean and in good order
and yourself as clean as you can;
treat your animals kindly and fairly
and your motor or other machine as
though it belonged to you and was the
only one in the world. Do not waste
your ammunition, your gas, your food.
jour lime nor your opportunity.
3. Never try to fire an empty gun
'nor at an empty trench; but when yon
shoot. Hhoot to kiil, and rorget not
that at close quarters a bavonet beats !
a bullet. I
4. Tell the truth squarely, race the
music, and take your punishment like
a man; for a good soldier won't lie,
doesn't skulk, and is no squealer.
5. Remember Edith Cavell, Belgium,
Serbin, the Lusitania, Louvain and the
U-boats or the Hun, and remembering
Teuton savagery, barbarism, and atro
cities, settle your heart against the j
ravishers of women, tho murderers, 1
and mutilators of children and non-1
combatants, the ruthless destroyers or
homes, tho Hounds-of-the-Hohenzol-lorn,
the bestial boches.
7. Be merciful to tho women of your
foe and shante then not, for you are a
man, not a beast, and a woman bore
you. And pity, and shield the chil
dren in your captured territory, for
you were once a helpless child, and
only a dastard makes war on the weak.
8. You shall kill in the name, and
for the sake of Liberty, Equality and
Fraternity, until Right shall triumph
over Might and Victory crown Justice.
You shall ncvor desert your cause,
your Country, your Colors, your Corps,
your Comrades in Arms, or tho Great
Alliance of the Liberators. And you
shall right shoulder to shoulder with I
your brothers in the League or Liberty, '
to the end that Despotism, Autocracy j
and Frightfulness shall perish from '
tho earth and that Freedom and De-!
mocracy shall, become the heritage or
humankind. 1
8. Fear dishonor, dread dereat, be of
good cheer and high courage, and don't j
shirk work or danger; but fear not
death, dread not wounds, suffer in si
lence and die game.
