This proved to be a town team. The second team was ^defeated by the score of 11 to 8. In as much as tlfls was the first real game for most of the players of the second team, the defeat was not a crushing one. They hope to do bat ter next time. Miss M. White is still on the sick list. Last Thursday afternoon the High School Literary Society gave its first program. There were quite a num ber of visitors who all seemed well pleased with the events of the after noon. After the regular business meeting, school news in the form of a paper review was read. These were spiced with jokes and proved very in teresting. The final part of the pro gram was taken up with the present ation of a playlet by the senior girls. It was the portrayal of the method used by a certain student in making love to seven different young ladies at the same time and of the feelings of these same young women upon dis covering their plight. The acting was very good throughout and it is hoped that we may be favored with more of the same variety in the fu ture. The School Board met in conference with the tax payers of the community on Monday afternoon to discuss the advisability of building an addition to the present school house. A good sized audience was present and gen eral feeling expressed was that an ad dition was most imperative. A stand ing vote was taken on the question, which resulted almost unanimously in favor of the proposed" building. It was clearly shown that the cost of maintenance of the addition would be no greater and even possibly less than the cost of maintenance of the two buildings now in use, one of which is inadequate at best.

Supt. of Schools Mttpt HOPE, STEELE COUNTY, NORTH DAKOTA, FEBRUARY 6, 1919 SOCIETIES PLAN WIUJTOL War Savings Bodies to Be Or ganized in Ninth District Week of Feb. 17 to 24. THREE OIFFERENTTYPES Model Organizations for Schools, Rural Communities and Busim.ss Establishments Outlined to Teach Thrift. Minneapolis, Minn.—The week of February IT to 24 will be Savings So ciety week in the Ninth Federal Re serve District. This time was today fixed by A. R. Rogers, chairman of the Ninth Dis trict War Loan Organization, as the period in which every community in the Ninth Federal Reserve District will organize the War Savings Socie ties which are to be the mucleus of the 1919 campaign for Thrift, Ameri canization and War Savings Stamp buying. Centering on the society plan by which scores in each society and millions throughout the district will have a common point of contact through weekly oc semi-monthly meet ings, the District War Loan Organisa tion aims to have Thrift written large on the minds and hearts of every man, woman and child in the district. A di rect appeal will be made for the pur chase of W. S. S. with the money saved. Three Type*. Three definite types of War Savings societies have heen worked out at headquarters by John H. Meyering. director of the W. S. S. division. Dr. Geo. N. Bauer, head of the depart ment of mathematics at the Univer sity of Minnesota, who is on leave to devote himself to War Savings Or ganization. and the other workers un der Mr. Rogers. They are: 1. A model society type for schools. 2. A model type for societies or ganized in rural communities. 3. A inc el type for industrial or commercial establishments. On the last mentioned plan War Savings Societies will be formed in stores, factories, mills and In railroad and other offices, wherever in fact there is an establishment employing ten or more persons. The school so cieties, many of which are already running successfully, will be greatly Increased in number and revivified and hundreds of new societies will be added to those which already are flourishing in so many rural communi ties. Actually, there is hardly any limit to the number or nature of groups which can organize War Savings Societies. In giving the models such names as "school," "community," or "Industrial" the directors mean merely to indicate the general nature of the plan. Any group can organize, choosing the type that seems best suited to its needs. Every group will be urged to organ ize. Farmers' clubs, commercial clubs, fraternal orders, woman's clubs, clubs of boys and girls, mutual co-operative associations of all sorts, every gather ing where the message of thrift, Americanization and the purchase of Government securities can be placed before a number of persons, will be utilized. Americanization work is to be close ly linked with the War Savings Socie ties, especially in communities where a considerable proportion of the popu lation is not yet fully alive to the American spirit and the benefits de rived from living in the United States. It Is the opinion of the cen tral committee that ownership of W. B. S. and other Government securities will be a distinct help to Americaniza tion. It will Increase the Interest of the individual in his Government when he knows he owns a part of the nation's public debt. Speed Up Organization. County chairmen of War Saving* Stamp sales have been advised by Mr. Meyering to get in toaeh Immediately with all workers in their territories and to make preparations for form ing the societies during the week of February 17. There also will be meetings of county chairmen at vari ous polnta in each atate of the Ninth District, At which the information of eaoh will be made available for the others. At eaoh of these meetings a worker from headquarters In Minne apolis will attend with Information and advice. A Speakers' Bureau is being worked up which will be able to aupply speakers to the societies, eith er at the time of organisation or at subsequent meetings. "Working on the fundamental idea ef the value of Thrift, we Intend also to convince every person in tue dis trict that the purchase of War Sav ings Stamps will make savings do a better, bigger and more valuable work than any other use of the money," Mr. Meyering said today. "At the same time, of course, the money saved and Invested in stamps will be perfectly safe and will yield an Interest return W—fllP 1 each'year. per cent, and S per cent. 0 Save And Invest. For more than four years the world has been spending. Now the world must either start saving to make up the loss and waste or "it must fall back into stagnation and sink to a standard of comfort and happiness dis tinctly below that of 1914. But it Is not necessary for the American peo ple to fall back if they are thrifty and save. We have the beBt oppor tunity to save of any of the world'* nations. We have food, clothing and money—all the good things In life. But we must make the basis of this prosperity secure. Saving makes the future prosperity of the individual safe. At the same time it supplies money to the Government with which the whole national structure can be so strengthened that we will not have to lose or forego our general pros perity. "With these appeals there is also the fact that America must loan money to other nations if those nations are to continue to hu.v goods in the United States and by so doing give steady employment to our industrial and agricultural workers. During the war while we were supplying the world, our production expanded tremendous ly. We must hold those foreign mar kets if we are to keep up that produc tion rate. We must hold foreign mar kets or undergo such a slackening In manufacture and agriculture that every individual will suffer. "Much of the money loaned through investment in War Savings Stamps will go to meet the overwhelming war expense which remains to be paid. Much of the rest will go to foreign nations as credits with which they can buy of us and 'keep the home wheels turning.'" A Permanent Force. The War Savings societies formed this year will probably become an in creasingly Important factor in financ ing the flnited States when the per iod for Liberty Loans has passed. Ac cording to Mr. Rogers, the Treasury Department plans to make the socie ties permanent so far as possible and to keep War Savings Stamps on sale as a means whereby every Individual can save with security at the same time that he is adding to the Govern men 's income. Not the least advan tage of such a plan will be a material reduction of taxes in coming years In so far as the total of many small sav ings defrays the heavy national ex pense we must carry as a result of the war. Vil'AR WON, BUT NOT ENDED Gronna Says Readjustment Days Need Aid of Every Citizen. Statement by United States Senator Asle J. Gronna, of North Dakota: "The war has been won, but has not ended. The days of readjustment will demand the cooperation and intelli gent aid of every loyal American citi zen. Money must be raised to defray war bills which will worry the guar dians of the nation's financial destiny for some time to come. "Patriotic, constructive aid can be rendered the Government now by even the smallest wage earner, and in such a manner as to make his patriotic ef fort a boomerang of good fortune. The Government is urging American citi zens to continue the purchase of War Savings and Thrift Stamps and other Government securities, to help raise money to defray expenses which at present are even heavier than those which arose while the war was on. Our financial stability must be maintained, our credit must remain unimpaired. "I heartily approve of the Govern ment's plan to spread the gospel of thrift in every home throughout the land. The purchase of War Savings and Thrift Stamps is a practical man ifestation of thrift. The likeness of Benjamin Franklin which appears up on the new issue is Indeed significant, and homage should be paid to him by every citizen by investing in Govern ment securities, thereby laying the foundation for the national spirit of thrift which I believe the war has In culcated in many who formerly did not know the meaning of the word." SUPPORT OF OUR SOLDIERS People 8hould Buy Liberty Bonds and W. 8. S„ Says Clark. Statement by Speaker Champ Clark of Missouri: "It goes without saying that there must and will be another big Bond Is sue. Having put our hands to the plow we must not look back. We can not afford to. Because while the world war is really over, it is not technically ended until President Wilson issues a proclamation to that effect. We still have a huge army overseas and while It should be brought home as soon as ships can bring our soldiers back, un til they get back, they must be fed and clothed and otherwise cared fer. It would be an everlasting shame not to do that. So people ahould subscribe for the Impending loan and purchase War Savings Stamps as readily and liberally as they subscribed tor past loans. It's for the support of our sol diers and nothing Is too good for them." "CHAMP CLARK." Keep your subscription to the Hope Pioneer paid ip advance.
