PEOPLE. NOT
ARMY, NOW
HOLD STAGE
By United States Senator George E.
Chamberlain, Chairman Military
Affairs Committee of Senate.
"We are rounding out one of the
greatest, if not the greatest single
drama In the world's history. The
most tragic scene is over and another
is being acted, and in this scene it is
the mass of the American people that
hold the center of -the 'stage rather
than the American armiefe. The lat
ter have {tactically completed their
work and they played their part with
superb excellence. It Is our part now
to finish their work.
"We have got to finish financing
the war and to finance the peace.
We have got to pay for those things
we bought or contracted for, to take
the best possible care of our soldier
boys and to make them the superb
fighting force that they ware. We
have got to care for the wounded and
their dependents and the dependents
of those who died la their country's
service. We have got to, rehabilitate
our wounded and train them for use
ful occupations which they can pur
sue in spite of loss of limbs or sight
or other such injuries.
Must Finish Task!
"We have got to stand by the peo
ples of those nations who were asso
elated with us In the war against
Germany and who have been under
the cruel hand of German domination.
We have got to finish in all ways
the great and the very glorious task
that America set out to accomplish in
April, 1917, and which so far has been
accomplished with a success that
every true American rejoices at and is
proud of.
"This is a task that no good Ameri
can—man, woman or child—will shirk
or will wish to shirk. And every
one of them, man, woman and child,
can helpi Through the Liberty Loan
and War Savings Stamps tho United
States offers each and ail an opportu
nity to contribute to its great work
of establishing world justice, world
liberty and world enduring peace.
Some of us may not be able to buy of
the Liberty Loan but practically every
one of us can buy War Eatings
Stamps and the purchase of every
War Savings Stamp .«ids in the great
work. It is a great honor to have a
part in this great world drama that
is being played and every purchaser
of a United States Government war
security has a part in it. Never was
so great an honor so cheaply to be
bought, never so great a service so
easily rendered."
A Woman Point« the Way
"Save while the money is warm" is
the motto of a woman who has estab
lished a reputation both for herself and
her family by the number of War Sav
ings Stamps she bought without appar
ently stinting in the least. Here is her
system :
"The only way to save Is to save.
When I have actually saved a quarter
I put It into a thrift stamp without de
lay. If I save that quarter on one
thing and then spend It carelessly for
something else, I have not saved any
real money.

"For example, the other day ! went
down town expecting to pay $10 for
pair of special shoes. To my surprise, I
fourni there was a sale that day, and
, got the very i>alr of shoes I wanted for
$7.75. I had saved $2.25. But how to
keep It saved. I knew that if I simply
regarded It mentally as saving, before
the end of the month It would be spent
miscellaneously. I went right down
stairs in the store and b^ksght nine
thrift stamps and stuck those quarters
In the thrift card where they could not
get away before the end of the month.
I do the sàme thing when I have saved
a single quarter or half dollar, and I
am seriously thinking of getting a little
I penny bank to hold Baved pennies or
j dimes until they grow'tn thrift stamp
; sise. What is more. I am getting a
I whole lot of fun out of this Aost fas
cinating game, the game of 'Getting
▲head.' "
Great Political Truth.
Half n dosen men control every city,
three or four men control every coun
try town, two or three men control ev
ery country neighborhood. It Is the
nnturul law and no system of govern
ment will change It—Topeka Capital.
