WHAT THEY ARE AND WHY YOU SHOULD BUY “War Stavings Stamps," says the government leaflet, "are the answer of a great democracy to the demand for a democratic form of government security. They are ‘little hahv bonds.’ Like Libertv bonds, thev have behind them « • * the entire resources of the government and the people of the United Statts. They have the additional advantage that thev steadilv grow and increase in value from the date of purchase until the date of maturity, and this in crease is guaranteed by the government." We take it there is not a reader of The Gateway but knows of the denominations in which these stamps and bonds are issued and mav be obtained. Many readers mav not have figured it out. however, that one of these certificates or bonds bought this January at $4.12. will be worth ne.v January $1.24 in money at any United States % % depository, or anywhere else for that matter; a year later >‘4.36; in another twelvemonth $4.48: in January 11)22, $4.60, and in January 1023. $5.00. Why should you buy them'.’ To put the least of reas ons first: They are positively the best savings invest ment on the market. They offer a field of investment wherein every person has a chance, even to him who can do no better than chisel off a two-bit piece every now and then. Thev entice to saving more than anv other form of investment. Hut the great reason, the over-shadowing inducement to every real American—to revert again to the language of the government leaflet—“is because your country is at war. Your country needs every penny which every man, woman and child can save and lend in order to feed, clothe arm and equip the soldiers and sailors of America and to win this righteous war in defense of American honor and •he cause of democracy throughout the world.” Every word of that reason why you should buy these stamps and bonds is freighted with the suggestion of duty. We cannot believe there is need for further urging. You know the merciless, beastly nature of the fot we have to conquer. You know the power with which that foe has equipped himself. You know that world is not safe for 1 any free people—that is is not safe for you and yours—un dl that foe is vanquished and his power to work furtehr beastly evil destroyed. In the role of hero you would be proud to help vanquish him. You can help beat him by saving. It is quite as important as fighting. For every individual citizen the proffer and purchase of these stamps and bonds should be a matter of personal patriotism. They offer the chance for everyone to do his bit as the enthusiasm of his loyalty and the nature of his ' love of country will prompt. Consider this matter of thrift stamps and saving cer tificates—what they are and why you should buy them. It is only a question of thinking seriously about them, and ’ he rest will follow. As a war measure we now have a national employ ment bureau under whose auspices labor may be transfer red from one section of the country to other sections ✓ * where the demand is acute. Owing to our eight hour law in Alaska and the already present shortage of labor, we will need a few thousand men up here. ■ .. - With the vaudeville show and dance planned for early , in February; the masquerade to be given by the Fire De partment members in the latter part of February and the i minstrelsy planned in March, three big events for diver sion of social affairs are promised. It is understood that a labor agitator is coming to Seward to form unions. During the war and until the la bor situation in Seward is bettered, the best thing for the agitator to do forget Seward for he will not be welcomed.
