"System" reports an exhibit by au K?steln blink Willah uses uctltul coins and bills to diow the interest earning power of savings. "What does this suggest lo your" reads a sign in the haul; window'. Then there is a cent beside an hour glass, it dime he Hide a curd marked ?'Today," three si 1 vet dollars beside a card rending ",luno,"uhd then ponies mi ei|tiul sign followed by $442 in currency, ami an internal tnble for ten years Which is a graphic way of showing that one cent an hour or a dime saved every day for toil years amount to flltti), ami that the interest on Blich a nest egg will amount fS'J -total $142. i food window dressing along this line is playing nil import nut part in the national thrill movement centered on NY a r Savings Stamps, Such teach? ing of thrift through object les sons is no longer limited to banks and thrift institutions, lull carried into shops, factor ics, schools, and uviiii churches ?every place Wlieft? people or gnuizo to save money and in? vest in l lu il l Stamps. l'hi' growth of money in vest od in stamps can he shown by the stamps themselves, in connec? tion with coins and bills. line interesting display made recently in a factor cafeteria, behind a glass frame, show? ed sixteen quarters, a dime and two pennies under the leg. end "Today," while an arrow pointed from this money to an other legend "New Year's, day 1024,'.' with exactly sixteen quarters, a dime and two cents. Underneath the first urrungo menl of coins were sixteen Thrift Stamps, with n dime and two cents, then an equal mark, followed by a War Savings Stamp, and the arrow pointed to a $0 lull Ulldui the coins on the opposite side. This was a graphic way of showing that $4.12 in itself would not grow j at tiil during live years, where j as invested in Thrift Stamps it will earn neatly another dollar. Objectives stimulate thrift. People usunllv save money most systematically when they have tt clear purpose. The objective may be education for One's self or childroii, a home, a turn-a round fund, a vacation or mar ritige These objectives can bo visualized. Km example, edu cation means increased earning; power. Koiir Thrift Stamps o| week put aside by a school boj or a mechanic and invest in. technical training may easily double duo's earnings, and ill* low u progressive increase through life. This can be shown in a series of actual salary j checks for a term of years, one set remaining at the Maine level of earnings, and the other con. stoutly increasing, a home, a vacation, a wedding, rind other objectives c-io be visualized in' Concrete way s, jThc Sidewalk and the Slum. The farms of the United j States furnished two and a half ; million men to the army. Need* j less to say, they have not all Icome back. According to a report issued by the sinti' of Nebraska, ISO, 000 men will be needed by that j state alone to help in harvest ; ing I he wheat crop. The work of demobilization is I very far advanced. A largo I proportion of the farm hoys i should be back on the farms, j They are not. I" the statu of I New York 111,000 men left farms! to join the colors, and :l,O0(> nf I t beni have gone back. Many more have been freed from the army, but ihey hnve Stayed in New York city. Ami that city reports graver condi? tions due in unemployment 1 hau any ot her city, in the mi ion, Conditions in Cleveland are bad Olintlgil, but they are wiese in New \ nrk than anywhere Kami boys have decided to be citj boys, ami join the ranks of the unemployed. If they ob? tain employment, the expense of living in the city will leave them in the same position fi? nancially lit tile end of each month as if they had gomi back to the farm. Wages may bo higher in New York?at all events if you are n member ol a union, which most farm boys are not - but that fact is dis counted by the increased cost of living in the city. Hut why should a farm boy waul to be a union member in a city? He has mere bosses there than lie can count. Ids em? ployer is one. his foreman is another, and each of half-a dozen union oftlcdrs is another. Eyeil his pals are his bosses He never knows if they are U" ing to get him in wrong with his employer, or with the union officials. ? >n a farm is closer to being his own boss than nny City eiii ployee, and if he takes up land he can bringth.it desirable con? dition to realization a dream which finely comes true in a city. Also, he is the one man between I he blue sky ami the pit that Uncle Sam cannot do without.
