HOW WORKMEN DO THEIR BIT Investment Brings Good Returns, in Addition to Giving Financial As sistance Every Loyal Citizen Owes His Government. (By EVA DEAN of the Vigilantes.) It was Just another day in the t'ac tory. There was nothing prophetic in the hum of the machines; It was quite tho everyday hum. The workmen talked loudly to lie heard; they always talked while they worked; they liked the sound of their own voices. It mat tered not much what they saiil—the same Joke will do day after day in a factory; an old one is almost as good as a new one to break the mental monotony. When one's habitual activ ity Is with one’s lingers one isn't very critical of mental efforts. Still, were you to ask them, any of the men would have said they pre ferred sin argument to all other kinds of brain exercise. Argument Is what they would have called any of the ver bal volleys they tired hack and forth at one another from their inexpert mental batteries, while their expert fingers moved ceaselessly at their tasks. And nowadays there is always enough to argue about—the war! The only trouble—though no one really seemed to mind that—was that there was no one around to uphold the gov ernment in these controversies. Of the hundred men employed—for it was a small factory—there was but one with an American-born parent, though a considerable number were themselves born in America. The one hundred were all here by choice, how ever, and hardly one ever really ex pected to live anywhere else. Hut they talked as though they might; and one could Imagine they expected the Unit ed States to immediately offer them inducements to stay when it heard of their intended leaving. They Discuss Liberty Bonds. Charles, in the lightest corner—a few years ago he would have been Karl—was always talking about the price nf food: “I take a Liberty bond? Indeed I’ll not! If the government had kept prices down, and protected tin* working man, and kept the rich man from making war protits, why, I might. There Is going to be trouble In this country some day and the gov ernment deserves all that Is coming to them. The government ought to do everything It enn to keep the good will of the people. Why-—beer—” Charles can never talk long without mention ing beer. Jo—whose early training was In n protectorate—was a born financier. He had actually been talking about a bond on the dollar-a-week plan, but no one In the workrooms seemed to think it a good investment. It would be bet ter to buy sugar or whisky and keep it for a higher price. So Jo had simply talked for the past two weeks; he had not decided. One might get 4% per cent, or even o per cent later! It would be better to wait. “The government don't feed the hoys in camp!" shouted the porter. "Of course It don’t," yelled the thin man by the window. “We don’t know what goes on there. No wonder lots of them commit suicide!" “Well—I’d like to buy a bond,” broke ! ’n Old Hailey, courageously. Old Hal ley was born among the Pennsylvania | I Mitch. "Hut. with sixteen dollars a | week, and a family, I don’t see how I can." "Nor do I.” said the tall young man of whom tlie men said, "His mother was born here.” All Are Buying Bonds. The macli I nos hummed on, the voices rising and falling In opimsitlon, when suddenly the eager face of Jo—the news gatherer--was thrust through the door: “There’s an Italian hanker In the second room talking to the wops shout Liberty bonds.” he informed. The voices censed. Everybody wished he could hear. “lie's still talking! All the wops are In there,” spread the news to every corner of the building; and then close upon that: "They’re buying them; every one of the wops are buying then!!" In a shorter time than It could have taken a man to walk through the build ing. every one In It knew that the wops—the lowest-paid men of them all were buying Liberty bonds. Presently all the workmen who could j understand English were assembled In one room. They looked about eu ■ riously at one another; never before | Imd they seen themselves en masse. It was a strange assembly, with Its dirty ! aprons, Its rough, lined faces and quiet : tongues. It must have seemed such | to the salesman; his mouth set per I ceptlbly as he looked about nt his au dience. The Italian orator had gesticulated grandly ; and there had been much of “Italia ! Italia!” But this man, after Ids first look at the faces ocfore him. decided not to talk patriotism. So lie simply stated that our government was at war. Very clearly he explained what that meant financially; he ac knowledged that living was high and hard, but nevertheless everyone who did not help was a slacker. And, In convincing conclusion: “If we don’t give our money, the government Is go Ing to take it anyhow. It has to have It. It will make us pay it in taxes; and then we not only will not have any Interest, but we’ll have nothing to show for the money. In the second room they all helped. How many of you are going to help? How many here want bonds?” Partnership With Government. Evidently the factory considered it a “good argument.” And then the wops, with their despised salaries, had subscribed; everyone was thinking about that. The hands began to go up, and a line of applicants was quickly formed. The tall young man (whose mother was an American) bad stood, hesitat ing, until he saw Old Hailey's gray head bend over the signature bench ; and then, smiling, he slipped in be hind him, muttering, "If lie can, 1 can.” Now tin* machines were humming again and argument begun once more. The thin man by the window was the first to speak. “Well," he com mented, “we’ve got to do something for the hoys!” “When 1 get this paid, maybe they'll have a 5 per cent bond," said Jo, the financier. “America and Italy; we gotta make kill alia de kings—alia no good !" nod ded one of the contributors from the | second room, with approval. , It was the same everyday hum of the machines, but the factory was dif j ferent. It was no longer a critical. I skeptical spectator of the struggle of civilization, bitterly suspicious of its j own government. It and the govern I meat were now partners. The war no I no longer the government’s war; it I was our war, our army, our boys, and : the factory was doing its bit! The bond salesman, perhaps, added up the result of his work with some satisfaction; but by far the greater and most important part of It he knows nothing about. WOMEN TO THE FORE Wives and Mothers Know Value of Liberty Bonds. War Behind the Lines Is Being Prose cuted on a Tremendous Scale— Every Woman Can Help Do Something. ! (By ALBERT W. ATWOOD. Financial Writer for the Saturday Evening Post.) The (lav seems to have passed when woman’s education consisted of piano I lessons and a little polite French. Now she studies biology, ph.vchology, and all the other ologies. In this i great and radical change In the posi tion of woman it will not do to over look tlie change in her relation to money matters. It is no longer un womanly to know something about money. Feminine charm is not di minished by knowing the difference between it bond and a share of stock. Millions of women earn their living today. Hundreds of thousands have independent means and must decide for themselves in affairs tlnnneial. More and more of the wives, mothers, and sisters not only spend the house hold money, hut are consulted hy the men when an investment is to he made. It matters not whether the investment consists of a vlctrola, an automobile, or a bond. If Is said men do not take their wives into their con fidence when they gamble or take a flyer, hut it Is also said that deception in these matters does not pity. So there is every material reason why women should do their part and more in floating the Liberty bonds. Indeed a woman recognizes a gold dollar just as quick as a man. ann when it pays good Interest In addition she Is not going to turn it down. But there is more than a purely husi ness and selfish side to the women of I this country. They have surprised even themselves with their executive ability and powers of business organ lzation. The Hod fross and every other variety of relief work has been in its detail largely the result of woman's effort. Behind the lines women are prose outing the war on a tremendous scale There are millions of men as well ss women who cannot tight In the trenches, who cannot even drive mo tortrucks or work In munition fac tories. There are some people who can not even successfully raise a vegetable garden, hut there Is not an adult man or woman outside the poorhouse and tin* hospital who cannot either buy or help to sell a Liberty bond. It Is the least they can do. Don’t Buy Too Big a Bond. Here is ii word of advice for the fanner bond purchaser. Don't bite ofr more than you can chew. Your gov ernment doesn’t want you to "strap” yourself or run Into financial difficul ties trying to pay for a bond. Huy one small enough so you will be able to pay for it in the allotted time without having to borrow money to meet the obligation. Its value will represent vour savings for that period of time. If your circumstances won't permit of you purchasing a SI.(too bond, buy on ly a $500 one. Don’t complicate our already complicated financial problem by assuming a debt you can’t pay. He Wants to Win This War. Do You? A father in a little Illinois town re ceived a cablegram the other day from General Pershing, announcing the death of his two sons over there, "kill v d in action." He went out and sold I is home and bought Liberty Bonds. ■ I'm the only one left now and I'll i i nt a room for myself," was his only , comment. w— About the Two-in-One Frock. It lias become popular to economize ! —or, at least, to persuade ourselves that we nre economizing. You cannot make observation of the new modes without coming to the conclusion that designers have taken this spirit of the times into consideration and that It has brought grist to their mills. They have made combinations of mate- j rials and combinations of garments al most unheard of before. These com binations are novel and unusual—and alluring. In tailored suits, for example, we have wool fabrics combined with silk or cotton. Since wool must be con served and life is not worth living without a tunic skirt, the tailor pro vides a tunic of crepe georgette over a skirt of serge or other wool fabric. Coats are no longer uncompromisingly plain, but modified just enough to look exactly right with this new order of things in skirts. The result Is so fetching that many an unsuspecting tailored skirt of wool is destined to tind itself Joined for life to a tunic of geor gette or some other silk. Paris goes even farther and sponsors a union of serge and organdie In dresses that are too ehic to need excuse for being il logical. Among these aspirants for the fa vor of the economically Inclined there appears the two-in-one dress. A tine example of this design is shown in the picture and is made of sill; in two gar ments. It is a suit as pictured, with an unusually graceful coat. When the coat is removed a pretty, simple eve ning dress is disclosed—hence the "two-ln-one” title. There fire several lovely new silks In highly lustrous and somewhat heavy weaves, in which a two-ln-one dress will play its ver satile part and never become tire some. This Summer’s Sports Coat. Sport ippnrel. now having become a sot tied and accepted institution in the business of outfitting for tin* sea sons, has reached new developments. These are in the directions of new re finements. Fabrics that were not in the running for sports wear a season or two ago, hold tlie center of the stage today, without displacing the older j favorites. In sports coats the spring brought in sleeveless models in silk and in velvet j along with new long-sleeved coats in both these materials. Velvet in sports coats is an innovation, but it appears made up in designs that leave no room to doubt the purpose of the garment. Wide girdles, very big patch pockets, I large, fiat pearl buttons and parallel rows of stitching in white or colored silks or in the color of the coat, stamp ts character very certainly upon it. These velvet coate, sleeveless or oth erwise, are worn with tin* several sorts of sports skirts. Quite equal to asso ciating with thorn, to their mutual ad vantage, there are skirts of satin place, of khaki kool and some new heavy and lustrous weaves of silk, but velvet coats will he worn with wool or cotton skirts as well. In the picture a very practical sport coat of knitted silk has lengthwise stripes in funey Mitch ;tiid a collar and cuffs of plain knitting. The sash Is knitted like the coat and finished with a knotted fringe of the silk. It has patch pockets with tops turned hack and fastened down with a large button. Two of these buttons with loops of silk cord manage the fastening at the front and two others In a smaller size hold the sash to the coat at the sides.
