The work in disaster relief, nursing and health instruction is an impartant part of the peace time program of the organization. That $2,075 was contributed by residents of the state through the Rod Cross for relief work in connec tion with the Pueblo flood during the past few months shows the recogni tion given this organization as a national relief agency for emergency. During the year there were 43 dis asters in the United States resulting in the death of 850 persons and the injury of 2,500. These emergencies called for an expenditure of $1,871, 000 in the fiscal year ending June 30. There are today 37,787 nurses en American Red Cross rolled in the nursing service. Of the number, 249 nurses are en rolled from Montana. These nurses are qualified accoi'ding to the high standards of the Red Cross for serv ice in war or emergency. In Red Cx-oss Chapters, 1,267 public health nurses ax*e employed. Chapters here in Montana ai'c carrying on this woi'k and during the past year have em ployed 14 public health nurses. Planning to continue these services during the coming year, to expand them and reach other communities, the Red Cross will carry on its an nual Roll Call from Armistice Day to Thanksgiving. Contributing and sustaining memberships as well as the annual dollar memberships will provide funds to finance chapter ac tivities in this state and throughout the nation. ï ) J "Give Me a Chance To Think!" i All right. That chance will be during the week of No vember 7th to 12th. During that week take a little time and go over in your mind the many things your home town paper has done—is doing—will continue to do—for your home town. Think about it seriously. Think whether or not you have stood loyally by at all times when the community's champion has needed financial and moral support. Think whether or not you have always done your duty by the town's best friend. Think how much better your- home town paper could do if each citizen were as loyal to it as it is to them. % Think oi some one far away who would en joy the weekly visit from the old home town paper, then hand in a subscription for that far away friend.

A reasonable supply of optism becomes the circulating medium of community spirit and individual suc cess and new enterprises. Too much optimism not founded on actual business facts and conditions is as great an injury as well-founded opaimism is a blessing. A well-managed bank adopts the latter policy and becomes the discrim inating disseminator of the happy golden mean in business. Knowledge of what constitutes safe business conditions on the part of banks has lifted this country over many a temporary scare. The wave of doubt and fear is dis pelled by well-founded and cheerful optimism and the sunshine of hope gets community radiation. These important functions in com munity psychology are being per formed daily and all the year around by banking organizations. What would happen to business and the financial stability and credit of our country if the bankers became pessimistic? ADVICE NEEDED ABROAD Ambassador Geddes urges the pub lic to study the policies of nations that there may be a better under standing of international problems. The advice is more needed on the other side of the water than in the United States. Were there a better understanding in Europe of the mo tives of the Americans, much bitter feeling between the old world and the new would be avoided. Indeed, it is not too much to say that the world war would never have been started had the kaiser realized that the rights of the United States could not be trampled upon with impunity- At the present time, the ambassador's own country is inclined to look with scorn on the efforts of the United States to establish a merchant mar Did they but know the true me. character of Americans the British shipping men would accept the inevit able and accord American ships equal rights in the struggle for world trade. TAX EXEMPT SECURITIES. The present fiscal policy of the federal government, which has de veloped as a consequence of the vast ly increased cost of government and the imposition of taxes at progres sively higher rates upon large in comes, has produced a condition which is a serious handicap to busi ness enterprise. This condition is the existence of an enormous and ever-increasing vol ume of tax-exempt securities issued by a great variety of governmental agencies. All industry suffers as a result of this large volume of tax exempt se curities, and as a resuït of the con stant new demands of these agencies upon the reservoir of investment cap ital, regulated industry, such as the public utilities, suffer in particular degree. Under prevailing policies of regu f or people of lai'ge incomes to invest lation of public utilities are limited to a return which makes it impossible in such sécurit és in preference to the securities of government, which latter are exempt from the payment of taxes at the prevailing high rates. Therefore, public utilities have been obliged to forego badly needed capital expenditures for extensions and additions. The country is just now beginning to feel the full force of the depress ing effect? of such tax laws which di vert the stream of capital from pro ductive enterprises^ RECLAMATION OF THE HOME. Governor Davis of Idaho empha sizes the need of reclamation in the home, and intimates home and church are losing their control. To overcome this national weakness he makes an appeal to, parents to cor rect the ideas of wastefulness and extravagance begot by war. Family life must return to a sane and conservative basis and we must let up in making criminals by raising children in idleness. Fathers and mothers must spend more time with their own children instead of turning them over to schools, clubs and streets to raise. Habits of industry can only be ac quired by boys and girls when par ents work with them instead of giv ing them money to spend on pleas ures. Honest labor and habits of saving will form more character than scold ing, lecturing and passing laws to safeguard youth. We have got to ge: back to the principle that there is only one honest way to get money and have it to spend, and that is by service ren dered. Reclamation of the home must be founded upon industry, and all schemes to bring up young people to live without working are doomed to failure. The public schools must give more time to manual training, teaching trades and occupational work, in stead of cramming textbooks and sharpening wits. An enduring constitution, good common sense and sound moral char acter are impossible without applied industry and earning before spending. HOME TOWN PAPER WEEK Nation-Wide Movement Set for No vember 7th to 12th. Every Four Corners has its Horae Town week nowadays, but all the boys and girls who have wandered from the Township Center cannot get back to enjoy the loved surroundings. But all can subscribe to the old home town paper and thus keep well in touch with the little spot they once called home. gfVhat joy to run over the school promotions and find that the tots of a few years ago are moving higher and higher in scholastic circles and eventually blossom forth as the "sweet girl graduates," or the clean strong boys discarding knickers. Just watch that hardened old city codger open up his home paper—it is the first thing he picks up out of his hunch of mail—and what can he find there to interest him? Angus Mc Gugan's horse died yesterday; Peter McGregor will run for the county clerkship; Horace Jell hopes to wifi the secretaryship of the Hllltown Ag ricultural Society.; Lydia Hunger has opened a millinery store; Mrs. Browi lost her hand satchel in the butchery; Dr. Borland is attending Clara Brown, who is down with a severe cold; Mrs. Pinter broke her ankle and is In the county hospital. Yet though he smiles at the old-time styles and expressions he enjoys it all over and over again, for it takes his mind back home where his won derful boyhood days—happy days— were spent. WILL BOOST HOME PAPERS Week of November 7-12 Set for Na tion-Wide Endeavor. "Subscribe to your home town pa i >> per. This is the slogan of a new nation wide movement backed by the Na tional Editorial Association and other agencies. The movement has back of it rar more than a selfish desire on the part of newspapers to acquire increased circulation, for it is, in effect, a step toward the perfect unification of America by the strengthening of ties that bind everyone to his native soil. The campaign is, moreover, an ex cellent opportunity to boost the home town. The men and women who were born and reared here have, some of them, been away for many years and many important changes have taken place—changes in which they would be greatly Interested. It is more often tïffc case than not that private corre spondence overlooks these changes, however carefully one might attempt to write "the news" in a letter. The newspaper, on the other hand, prints all the items of interest, large and small, and is the Ideal, medium through which to keep In touch with In the old home town.

The 24,646 members of the Ameri can Red Cross in Montana are bring ing the many departments of Red Cross activity iu the state to the peo ple in the rural communities as well as the cities. Since the present pro gram of the organization is especially well adapted to sparsely settled com munities, it is meeting a constantly increasing need. During the past year a total of 4.110 ex-service men have been served by the 53 Red Cross Chapters here in Montana. Many of these meu had families whose problems of living while their breadwinners w'îre under going hospital treatment or vocational training required attention and help. That a total of §300,000 was ex pended by Chapters in this work for ex-service men during the past year and a half shows the extent of this service. Much of this work was car ried on in the larger cities where necessarily there is greater need be cause of the numbers of men seeking employment. Equally important was the work in Chapters situated near the mountainous districts where iso lated cases' needing attention were often brought to the government's at tention through the Red Cross. The U. S. P. H. S. Hospital, at Helena has three Red Cross workers caring for the needs of patients. In addition the same service given the fighting men during the war is ex tended to disabled soldiers. Various comforts and necessities not provided by the government are supplied from Red Cross funds. Ifi addition to this soldier work a strong nursing program has been pre sented in various parts of the state. Classes in Horae Hygiene to the num ber of 222 were held by Red Cross In structors and Public Health Nurses during the past year. There are 249 Red Cross nurses enrolled from the state. Within the past year 14 Pub lic Health nurses have been employed by Chapters. One of the important phases of Red Cross work has been the aid extended drought sufferers in the sections of the state where the need has been great. Funds from national head quarters have been used in addition to those of the local Chapters in carrying on the work. While this has been confined to the communities where drought has prevailed, the good work which the Red Cross has accomplished has been appreciated throughout the state. While crops have proved abundant in several of thesejocalitles there is still some work to be accomplished. Red Cross Chapters plan to continue tills help so long as there Is any emergent need for this work. To this end, the fifth annual Roll Call, which opens on Armistice Day, gives every person an opportuity to renew Red Cross membership for the coming year. This will enable each of the 53 Chapters to discharge their community obligations and expand their service. Every membership dol lar is an investment in community welfare work as well as in relief activities locally and nationally. JUNIOR RED CROSS AIDS CITI ZENSHIP IN MONTANA.

I iifSMt k INSURANCE GOING DOWN. Few industries are of as direct im portance to the average individual as the business of fire insurance, A Few industries are as little under stood as is insurance. The average cost of fire insurance is lower now than before the great war. and it actually kept on going down during the war when everything else went up from 50 to 300 per cent. A point that the general public fails to appre ciate is -the fact that fire insurance only indemnifies; it does not restore. The greater the fire loss the great er is the risk in writing insurance, hence the higher rate. Insurance can pay for the property destroyed by fire, but it cannot pay for the enormous loss of time, unemployment and general destruction of business caused thereby. The public should boar these facts in mind' and assist in the campaign to cut down our §500,000,000 fire loss which occurred in 1920. Insurance rate making is the man ufacturing end *of the business of fire under-writing, and the rates sched ules for various classes of property must be based on the average fire loss over a period of years. • Therefore it lies largely within the power of the public to bring about rate reductions by reducing our enor mous annual fire loss.
