Roads Into Kendrick KENDRICK GAZETTE Subscription Price $1.50 In Advance VOLUME 32 KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. DECEMBER 29.1922 * NUMBER 32 THE THREE WINNING ESSAYS ON THRIFT Result of Contest Put oh by Kendrick State Bank £ Following are the three prize essays on "Ihritt", written for the •contest put on by the Kendrick State bank: By Marian Pickering, 10th Grade First Prize $5. Webster defines thrift as care and wisdom in the management of one's resources. This means that one should be shrewd and intelligent in obtain ing wealth and honest and careful in its use. There are three principal essentials to thrift: be industrious, apply your self to the ( task in hand, don't play while you are trying to work. Utilize spare time in such manner as wilt help you do better work. Work brings money: good work brings more mon ey, therefore attempt to do the best work possible. A second essential of thrift is econ omy. To be economical is to be care ful, not of our money only, but of all •our resources. You can be economical in the use of food. Don't waste what you cannot use at one meal. If it is possible save it and serve again, or if it is impossible to use again on the table feed it to the chickens or pigs. Do not buy bacon for breakfast when •eggs are just as good and are cheaper. Economy of this sort is lirift. Again, saving is another essential to thrift. Save your time. Don't go coasting when you have a lesson to get. Learn to do things when you have time and not put them off, and waste your time, for then they may never get done. Don't go to the movies just to be doing something. Don't buy a silk shirt just because it looks nice when a cheaper one will serve better. Don't buy a thing just because you like, when you do not need it. Thrift has its results. Save your money little by little and you find, as it accumulates, that you rise grad ually in the estem of your associates. Afoney gives a man power which is not to be had otherwise. Money and power go hand in hand. One loses all fear of future if he has been thrifty and has learned to use wisely all his resources. He can always turn them to his advantage. If he has saved money poverty has no fears for him. Therefore thrift means the making of those qualities of character which makes a happy, contented, peaceful people or home. By Herbert Goudzward, Leland 9th Grade Second Prize $3 Thriftiness is just the opposite of wastefulness. Not only can one be thrifty financially, but also with other material things. One is thrifty many times to save money, but in order to save money one must conserve other material resources. Why is orie thrifty? One is thrifty •because he desires to save for future investment, to give him a start in some profession, for one knows that when he starts in business or farming, he needs money to back him. Then one is thrifty so as to obtain a com fortable living when he advances in age. To save this money it is a great help to place one's savings in some •depository or savings bank; carrying it in the pocket, or leaving it about the home there is danger of losing it; these savings, added to regularly will in a few years, with semi-annual in terest added, amount to a tidy sum. This habit, started in youth, will prove to be the foundation stone of future success. There is also pleasure in thriftiness for a boy or girl; the average boy or girl is proud of his bank account, especially where he or she has by their own efforts accumulated part or all of the amount. Keep in mind this litle epithet, "You have not made it until you have saved it." By Hester Knepper, 7th Grade Third Prize $2. Thrift is economical management, Thrift is not just hoarding money, but saving it until you need it for useful purposes. The difference be tween hoarding and hriftiness is; hoarding is just putting your money away some place for the sake of hav ing it, while if you are thrifty you Perhaps He'll Overtake It On This New Road WELL, I Do HOPE i'M on The lasT LAP OF MV JOURNEY vl % y V Cn •V A*ef?iÇ4M Waes* 'A tsz z % SK O 6tAMI?OP I • I | ! 1 j j ! !

Daniel in honor of the teachers, the members of the school board and their wives, and a numoer of young ^people. The house was beautifully decorat ed with cedar boughs and a Christ mas tree. One of the features of the evening was a sewing contest. Each guest was given a ^'bottle, a needle and thread and dress ma terial. The one making the most beautiful dress for the doll bottle was awarded a prize, Mrs. McCon nell being the successful seamstress. Various games were enjoyed dur ing the evening after which the hostess served dainty refreshments. T W. O. W.

The Bible says, "The love of money is the root of all evil." And anything that causes peo ple to hoard money is therefore evil. By putting your money in a bank you help everybody, by getting money into circulation, but when you hoard it you help no one and harm yourself. Often people try to be too saving and they go without many of the things they need, comfort, health and pleasurè. This is not thrift but miserli ness. There is, too, a great difference be tween thrift and stinginess. Stinginess is keeping every thing for yourself and not giving anybody else anything. Comfort, health and happiness should not be sacrificed for the sake of merely saving money, but one should not spend money foolishly. Thrift ap' plies not only to money,'but to other things as well. Time, health and every thing that helps to make a well-round ed life. Therefore, thrift is not hoarding money, being miserly or stingy but in spending money for useful and necessary things. an to of ■ T South wick News Miss Hazel Lofigeteig returned Home last Sunday from Craigmont where she has been teaching school.

Here is the answer of the American history students of the University of Idaho: Woodrow Wilson, 96; Hughes, 94; Boran, 87; Hoover, 84; Harding, 80; Bryan, 78; Taft, 74; Root, 71; and McAdoo, 60. To heighten interest in current history as well as to direct the con versation of his students away from campus "small talk," Professor C. J. Brosnan, of the American Hist ory department of the University, recently asked the students to list the ten foremost present day Amer ican statesmen and to give reasons in support of the selections. The canvass indicated that the student voters are inclined to be non-partisan. having accorded places in their "hall ot fame" for live conservative republicans, three democrats, and two progressive re publicans. True to the reputation attributed to young people for idealism and "a sublime audacity of faith," the referendum repealed that collegians admire in public men qualities like idealism, pronounced individuality* and boldness. Woodrow Wilson won first place because he took the question ot a League of Nations "out ot the realm ot dreams and made it a question of practical politics." Borah was heaped with laudation for his willingness to "play a lone hand" and for his "eight cylindereu independence." "iHghtin' Bot" La Follette was ■ also given bis niche in the "Big Ten," although criticized freely, he was admired for having showed "Big Business" tor 25 years that there were blows to give as well aa to take. Fine administrative ability won places fer World War Food Admin istrator Hoover and Director of Railroads McAdoo. Taft, Root and Hughes were al most unanimously labeled as "brainy." Harding was credited with "in tellectual patience." "the capacity to listen" and with "surrounding? himself with able advisors." Tbo general verdict was that he had "acquitted himself with wisdom in a period of readjustment." The fact that "Grape Juice" Bryan had lived to see his nation g» "dry" reflected the quality that won an award tor the "Great Com moner." That "his thinking has been 30 years in advance ot bis time," and that of any other public man," were favoring claims made by the University voters. "Prominent mention" was given to Henry Ford, Hiram Johnson and Samuel Gompers, whose votes, how ever, fell just below the "Big Ten * line.—StarMirror. Poultry Show Postponed The Eighth Annual Pan-Handle Poultry show scheduled at Moscow for January 25-26-27 has beeo post poned until January 30, 31 and Feb ruary first because of the conflict with the poultry show at Spokane, according to announcement made Wednesday atternoon by H.
