After the resignation of Mr. Hawley, a 1 lie middle of the year. Mr. Eaton in active charge of the War Sav ugs headquatiers. w; l)ii<rtof Issues Statement Mr. Fat ou. on commenting on the War Savings plan for the War Sav ing« work for Idaho for this year, says: "l am fully aware of the diffi culties in connection with the war h nance work at the present time Wit it tlie war over there is a marked tendency on the part of the people in general to feel that they have al ready done their part, and that no hing more is expected of them. This ttitude is wrong and entirely illog cal, and yet it constitutes one of the mporlunt factors that must be taken onsiderat ion. Did you think ot tlie situation in this Supposing there had been a dege of serious Illness in your fam uti ever top t, I y : iy. but that after all of the strain anil worry the members of the fnm ly had fortunately recovered. You would be relieved and delighted and task God for your good fortune. Vou would not. however, make tlie mistake of saying that your respon sibilities were now ended, for you would still have many of the bills to pay and would have to provide for tlie necessary period of run vales ecenc before you would get back on 10 the old normal basis once more. Our national situation is an exact tiara I el and It ought not to be very difficult for any intelligent person to understand just why this is so. "Now that the war is over we ars going lo emphasize particularly tlie angle of enlightened self-interest. The resolve to save and set aside In War Savings Stamps some portion ot one's income every week will be of immense benefit to the individual, to hi« community, and to the nation at large All of the big leaders iu labor, finance and commercial circles realize this eleayly. Malm's IMIS KecortI "During the year 1»18 Idaho pur chased, in maturity values. War Sav ings Stamps to the amount of $5. 8 (U, 0 Utf. or approximately $14 ât» per capita. Her record was approximate ly that of the nation as a whole. |ds ho's quota was $8,000,000. The Waf Savings idea was. however, a new thing and a large amount of propa ganda and educational work had lo be done before it gathered momen tum. This year Idaho's quota will be smaller than that of last year. Last year she did not attain her quota in full, this year she can do so and make her record a perfect one with comparative ease if we are all willing to boost and do our in dividual share. "There has liet-u a lamentable fall ng oil in 'be sale of War Savings Stamps during the first two months it this year, in December, lalk. lit« sales were well ore# - one million dol lars In January. IMF, the sales tor the state thousand merely represents a period of pause lo take breath and get our bearings before taking up the work seriously once more. vere only a little oyer forty dollars. however. This. Must Do Our Part "Wo arc going to try to do Idaho's part in the War Savings campaign f tr this y ear without special drives, and we hope to have the money put into War Savings Stamps represent the actual and consistent saving of what otherwise would he wasted If the people <*f the state respond as l am sure they will, there will be no need for resorting to the special high-presaure drive method." ta sat TO MAKE PLANS Hill HEAVTIFYING SHOSHONE KAMA » • — ta— AATth the passage of the measure appropriating $10,WOU for the Great Shoshone Falls park and the signing of the measure by Governor Davis, plans for the Improvement of the place cun now go forward.
