Berlin, June 19.—“America can learn much from Europe, es pecially from Germany, in the matter of thrift and economy,” said Simon W. Strauss, the Chi cago banker and president of the American Society for thrift. Mr- Strauss has about completed a tour of France, Italy Austria and Germany during whi^ch he ihas made a thorough study of | European thrift and will make a : report to his society and to the | United States government of the results of his observations and I investigations. “My investigations in Ger many have impressed me with the need for extending the ac itivities of the American Society , for Thrift and making it interna tional,” said Mr. Strauss to the United Press. “We have become prodigal in the United States and I am here to learn the ways of thrift, but I find that the j German nation is more thrifty than the German individual. , Thrift is an anomaly. In Ameri ca we have taken up the sys tematic education of the peo ple to greater individual thrift, knowing that without that our municipal, state and national af fairs will not be run on thrift lines. One of the purposes of our society was to learn from in quiry in foreign countries, and I have observed and learned much which I hope may be na tionally useful in America. The physical condition of the men, the longer and more special ized school system, and the co operative buying and selling, are aspects of German thrift which will repay our study. A definite and systematic effort must be made in America to teach the benefits of the house I hold garden, as well as how to make one, and in doing this, iearn handicraft, which other wise city boys do not learn. The urban population must get back to the land, and this is the best and quickest way to bring about the change ” * ppsii Asquith Refuses To Accede* United Press Dispatch.
