The movement opens a fertile field
for Initiative and resourcefulness.
You should not hesitate to enter
heartily Into it. It is sound educa

Let every child in Missouri have a

CITY AND CAMPUS
Each pupil in the public schools of
Columbia and Boone County is going
to have an opportunity to learn about
the War Saving Certificates and buy
them. .1. V. McBaine, manager of the
thrift campaign in this county, and
members of his executive committee,
are now making plans to carry on the
campaign in each school district in
the county. The Missouri State
Teachers' Association and Ucl W.
Lamkin. state superintendent, will
also help carry out this plan of en
couraging thrift among the children
through the sale of baby bonds.
At the recent meeting ot,the State
Teachers' Association the State Su
perintendent said he proposed to take
up with the Missouri Bankers' Asso
ciation the question of school savings
banks. The teachers' association!
went on record as endorsing' the nation-wide
campaign for education in
thrift and for emphasizing methods in
The War Savings Certificates and
thrift card plans of the Government
will postpone the savings banks
movement in Missouri. The same
educational value will come from ac
tive assistance in furthering the sale
of thrift cards, and we will in addi
tion teach, valuable lesrons in patrio
tism, says Mr. Lamkin.
The plan Is simple. Thrift Stamps
are sold by postoffices and banks at
25 cents each. These stamps are
pasted on thrift cards, one of which
is furnished witlt the first stamp
bought. A thrift card holds sixteen
stamps, or $4 worth. When the card
is filled it may be exchanged for a
War Savings Certificate stamp. The
price of exchange till February, 1918,
is VI cents After that the price in
ci eases 1 cent per month With the
first War Savings Certificate stamp is
given a War Savings Certificate,
which will hold twenty stamps. On
January 1, 1923. the War Savings
Certificate will be redeemed at the
rate of $5 for each War Savings
stamp on it. In other words, every
$4.12 Invested in December or Janu
ary, (and every $4.13 in February,
etc.) will amount to $5 January 1,
1923, having increased at the rate of
4 per cent compounded quarterly.
"I am sure every teacher and ctery
pupil in Missouri will enter heartily1
Into the plan." says Mr. Lamkin. Our
Missouri allottmcnt is $20 per capita.
It means money to the Government,
which needs it. But it means the de
olopment of thrift habits In the
pupils, too. The War Savings Certifi
cates are made not transferable, to
emphasize and encourage the idea of
savings. Announcement relative to
forming thrift associations, in which
children can qualify as 'officer of
Thrift' will be made later.
"To own even a Thrift Stamp gives
a child a connection with his Govern
ment he has not had before. He has
loaned his quarter to his country. It

TALKS OX FEMINIST MOVEMENT
LOAVES WILL HE BIGGER
Llcrnttiii; f AH Large Bakeries Goes
As a lesuit of the federal licensing
by the Food Administration of all
bakeries, which went into effect Tues
day, consumers will get a larger loaf
but it may be of a slightly Inferior
This increase In quantity will not
increase the price. The charge of ten
cents for a pound loaf and fifteen
cents for a pound and a halt loaf will
be continued, the bakers asserted. No
effort has been made by the Food Ad
ministration to regulate, the price the
consumers shall pay.
Under the provisions of the license
a pound loaf of bread must weigh
from sixteen to seventeen ounces.
The pound loaves have been weigh
ing around fourteen ounces, bakers
admitted, if the bread is made in
other sizes the weight must be a mul
tiple of sixteen. The weight of the
bread unwrapped must conform to the
Food Administration's standardiza
tion twelve hours after baking.
The regulations stop the use of ani
mal fats as shortening. Compounds
containing not more than 15 per cent
animal fat can be used. Vegetable
oils are substituted in most cases, it
was said. The amount of sugar put
in dough must not exceed three
pounds to a barrel of flour.
The regulations stop fancy .breads.
To effect that a uniform amount of
each ingredient is required in every
"batch" of dough. Bread unsold by
dealers cannot be returned to the
bakers, the rules state.
Woman Citizen t'iub Hears Dr. C. A.
Dr. Charles A. Ellwood, proressor
of sociology in the University, spoke
last night to the Woman Citizen Club
on "Humanism and Feminism." Ac
cording to Doctor Ellwood there are
two phases of the present-day femin
ist movement. One is an expression
of the modern woman's desire for lib
erty, power and individualism as ends
1 themselves. The other idea, whoso
chief exponent is Miss Ellen Key, is
for women to receive greater freedom
in order that they may better sere
the Interests of humanity.
Doctor Ellwood believes that one of
the greatest dangers of the feminist
movement is that it may develop a
spirit of diss consciousness and cla33
power which would be adverse to the
best and highest interests of society.
