Government Must Have Twenty four Billions in a Year. WILL BE RAISED BY SAVING Sixteen Cents From Each Dollar Each One Earns, and the Rest by Sell ing Liberty Bonds to Patriotic Citizens. By LABERT ST. CLAIR. The problem of government finances Is just as complicated as we choose to make it. Approached from differ ent angles, it can be mnde as baffling as a Chinese puzzle or as simple as the operntlou of an old-fashioned dasher churn. If one attempts to delve into the ramifications of the expansion of cur rency, and all that sort of thing, he is very likely to develop stiff neck from craning up and down columns of figures and wind up by declaring that figures lie horribly. On the other hand, if he faces the situation in a broad, concrete way and compares it with the problem of financing his home, or some similar everyday expenditure, he can grasp and master it as he would the handle of the family pump. Here is the government's immediate financial problem in a nutshell In the next twelve months $24,000,000, 000 probably will be required by the United States government to meet war expenses. The total income of every person in this country is only about $(50,000,000,000 a year. Therefore, if the cost of the war for the next year were to be assessed pro rata, every person's share would be forty-eight cents on every dollar that he or she earns. Needed to Beat Off Murderers. Now let us bring the proposition a little nearer home. Suppose that a band of murderers. In blood-smeared uniforms of gray, having slaughtered their way through the helpless waves of women and children in nearby cities Just as the Hun has done in France and Belgium, established themselves in the woods at the edge of our town with the fixed purpose of waging slaughter in our midst. Then, If It were announced by the authori ties that It would cost forty-eight cents of every dollar that every earn er in our town made in the next twelve months to conduct a defense against the murderer, that would be clear, wouldn't it? And if the authori ties were to go further and say that they would assess sixteen gents of this forty-eight on persons who cojjld nfford to pay it and accept the other thirty-two from persons who, out of their zeal to aid in the defense of their homes and their loved ones, would take the promise of the local government to repay it, that would be plain, too. There isn't a bit of difference be tween the local case I have described and the present case of United States government. The Hun is In the offing, the government needs an average of 48-one hundredths of everyone's eCm ing in the next year to conduct its de fense, and it pians to raise this money on a one-third tax and two-thirds bond or stamp sale plan. Within the next year approximately $8,000,000,000 will be raised by taxes and $16,000,000,000 by the sale of government securities, Muat Be Raised by Economy. There Is the situation, and the ques tion now arises: How In the land of Goshen are we ever going to raise such a sum as $24,000,000,000? The answer Is: Save as we never have before. It will not be pleasant to skimp our selves, for we have not been used to skimping, but we simply shall have to do it. That old $24,000,000,000 re quirement is going to stick to us like a burr to a pair of mittens, and we simply must raise it. We must practice the same economy to raise the money with the Hun 3, 000 miles away that we would if he were in the grove out at the edge of town. He may be 3,000 miles away in person, but at every beat his lustful heart spans that gap between your daughter and mine and his fingers have a virulent 3,000 mile itch for your money and your farms. The question of what each of us must economize on can be settled only In our Individual minds and at our own firesides. If the Hun were in the grdVe literally, would any of us ask our neighbors what we should sacri fice in order to help raise our respec tive shares of the forty-eight cents on the dollar? I think not. My notion is that the question every patriotic American should ask himself 1 b What must I have? The query: Whht can I get along without? Is not searching enough. Heber Grim's Story Apropos. Every time the idea of saving oc curs to me I think of old Heber Grim, a character out In my western Indiana town who had a perennial habit of Joining church. Just as regularly ns revival meeting time rolled around, Heber would get himself all het up over his sins and, along in the last days of the meeting, he wonld come rearing and snorting' -down the aisle and Join up. Somehow, though, Heber never got around to making any sacrifices In behalf of his new found religion. He always kept right on chewing tobacco, swearing like a mule driver, drinking like a fish. and. wont of alL squander ng his money on loud clothes and i ither luxuries to such au extent that j he seldom had a cent to apply to any j worthy cause, -uch as the care of his family or the upkeep of the church As a result of Heber's regularity in blacksliding, therefore, for a dozen years or more the church folks never baptized him. They just sort of let him slide along, and, when immersion day finally arrived he usually was out behind his trotting horse, at a cock fight, or at some other place scarcely fitted for converts. Finally, though, the church authori ties got tired of Heber's professions of faith and their subsequent batten ing out, and when the next revival started, along in the spring, and he began to show signs of interest, they advised him that his confession would be received only with the understand ing that immersion should follow im mediately. He thought the matter over for three days and then agreed to join that night and be baptized without delay. And, sure enough, he arrived bright and early, and, when the going got good he joined up for the thirteenth time. Baptized Him in a Flood. Unfortunately, just as the meeting started, a terrific storm arose and the subsequent cloudburst flooded the country, Coal Creek, where the baptiz ing was to take place, being particu larly swollen. This situation made the baptizing somewhat dangerous, but the authorities agreed that it waa their only chance to get Heber, so, after church, with the repentant sin ner in tow, and armed with lanterns, they filed down to the creek for the baptizing. Stories differ as to how Heber, just as he was being immersed, escaped the officiating pastor's hands, some saying he wriggled out and others maintaining that he slipped, but, any how, he disappeared in the darkness. Daylight found him perched in a sycamore tree, a mile down the creek. In the center of a whirlpool that was worth a man's life to attempt to in vade. Henee, we had to leave him op the tree for three days uatil the water receded. Why He Vowed Sacrifices. When the rescuing party finally ar rived at the base of the tree, it was surprised to find Heber raining down plug tobacco, drinking liquor, dice, stickpins, fancy rings and other trink ets on which he had squandered his money, and declaring loudly that there was no sacrifice he would not make in the future for the good of the church and the protection of his soul. Nor did he descend until he had stripped himself of everything that he could reasonably spare and a little bit more. "Well, Heber." Bill Boggs, the post master said, after shaking hands with hlm, "I certainly was impressed with your spirit of sacrifice. Why was It that you never did that before?" "Why. thunderation, man!" Heber exploded. "I never was up a tree like that before." And there you are. When before were we, as patriotic citizens, up a tree as vve are this year? Conservation and Reclamation Divi sion Obtains Maximum Utilization of All Materials. One of the most insidious pieces of German propaganda which the govern ment has to combat appears in the form of rumors concerning excessive wastes of all foodstuffs and supplies in our army camps and cantonments. A glance at the work of the conserva tion and reclamation division of the army readily establishes the falsity of these reports. The aim of the conservation and reclamation division is to obtain the maximum utilization of all materials of service, to reduce the waste of these materials to a minimum, to de stroy nothing, and to dispose of all ma terial useless to the army at the great est profit possible. No restrictions are placed upon our soldiers' appetites, but the highest care is exerted to prevent the soldier from taking more on his plate than he wants —in other words, much of the food that formerly was lost through care lessness is now saved. The reclama tion officer and his assistants in every camp and every cantonment are re sponsible for the separating and the classifying of kitchen waste, produced in the preparation and serving of every meal at the mess; the object of this careful separation and classification of kitchen waste is to prevent wast age. The-division also has active charge of farming and garden operations for each camp and cantonment. The red uce raised Is used In rationing troops and providing animals with forage. No men fit for active duty are re quired to assist In this agricultural service. The quartermaster general of the army has a much more efficient plan, for he has this work done by In terned aliens, enemy prisoners, con scientious objectors and military pris oners. Of onr own enlisted men only those physically unsulted for service overseas or partially disabled are as signed to this agricultural work. It is believed that after a few months of outdoor work, many of the men now unfit will so improve physically that they* will become fit for transfer to fighting units. Thus the army will reclaim men as well as materials and supplies. The boys at the front and at camps and cantonments in this country also are setting a stnndard in- conservation and reclamation which Is magnificent. They are doing their utmost to see that every penny invested in the cause of democracy, through Liberty Bonds and otherwise. Is utilized efficiently. Trust Me!
