THURSDAY. JUNE 25, 1912
Wage earners in Bluffton have
bought a total of $181,634 in war
bonds and stamps or an average of
$32 per month per person for the
month of January to the present, it
was announced this week by Norman
Triplett, chairman of the Bluffton
defense savings committee.
The monthly average has been
$33,024 so far this year. This would
constitute an average purchase of
$16 for every man, woman and child
in town or figuring on the basis of
1,000 wage earners the average pur
chase would be about $32 per month.
Monthly breakdown of purchases
is as follows: January, $21,628 Feb
ruary, $10,826 March, $29,044
April, $83,452 May, $31,055 first
two weeks in June, $5,629.
With the national war savings or
ganization given a quota of $1,000,
000,000 for the month of July and
each month thereafter, it has been
urged by Triplett that all Bluffton
residents meet their pledges as a
very minimum amount and to pur
chase as much more as is possible.
The quotas of $600,000,000 in May
and $800,000,000 are being met but
considerable extra effort will be
needed to meet the monthly billion
dollar quota.
It would be an easy matter to tax
the citizens of the country for the
