ARE YOU TOTING FAIR?
Onrc ttn a time to start this little story in the classic style
when you were a small lad yon had a heavy burden to carry and
you had a:iotlu r hoy to help you. You secured a mIc of convenient
length and suspended the loaded basket from the center of it and
then you hitthe i onto it. Hut before you had gone far the other
Ikiv began to let down the load slipped toward your end and the
first thing you knew you were bearing the biggest part of the
burden.. Did it make you sore? It certainly did and justly so.
That was your first acquaintance with the kind of animal which
during the recent war came to bear the somewhat unsavory title
'slacker." You had a right to expect your partner at the other
end of the pole to tolc fair. It was his load as well as yours
but he wasn't willing to carry his share of it.
Thrf slackcr-lxiy is now a man and he is living among men
all of whom have certain responsibilities to bear by reason of being
members of a community. 1 here are obligations resting him as a
citizen burdens that are his in common with his neighbors but
he is letting them slide to the other end of the pole for somebody
else to carry. He has "alibis" of course never lacking in excuses
for failure to do his part but "the real explanation as all know in
spite of his shallow excuses is that he is still a slacker-citizen
perfectly content to enjoy all the benefits of community life ai.d
perfectly willing to let the other fellows shoulder the burdens.
"Duty" is spelled with four letters but it is one of the biggest
words in the English language. A man has duties to himself his
family his neighbors his community his state and his country
and the measure of his manhood ia the extent to which he recog-
nizes and discharges all his duties. "No man liveth to himself and
no man dieth to himself." In a thousand ways one's life is in-
extricably interwoven with the life of the community in which he
lives. No man) can ignore civic duty and be true to himself; no
man can crawl into his own shell of selfishness attending "strictly
to his own business" and letting the business which is everybody's
severely alone and be true to his obligations as a citizen. There
are dozens of things which concern the welfare of the entire com-
munity and it is even-body's business to attend to them. Thev are
matters wnicn atiect everybody s interests and jt is everybody s
amy 10 assume ins snare ot the burden.
J hese are times when every man feels that he has his share
and more than his share of troubles but in spite of this fact there
are multitudes ot courageous comniunity-minded men who are not
shirking from carrying their share of the common burden. We
question whether there is any town which has more of this class
of men in proportion to population than Chickasha. They are
active in our civic clubs in our Merchants' association in our
Uiambcr ot Commerce in our churches and in other organizations.
and always ready to go the limit in wholehearted co-operation -for
inc good ot unckaslia. 1 hey are toting fair with their neighbors
and their town never seeking to shift the load to other shoulders;
in short they are "good scouts" or you might say "regular fel-
lows" and they are prompt to answer every call of. the commun-
ity whether it is a nullter of giving money or performing personal
service. ' Men of this kind realize that an ounce of constructive
effort is worth a pound of destructive criticism There is going
to be a whole flock of them at the Chamber of Commerce hieeting
next Monday evening eager to do their part and to bear their
share of every burden. Will you be among them? '

AS A MAN THINKETH.
A man is literally what he thinks his character being the
complete sum of his thoughts.
Man is made or unmade by himself.
Man is the master of thought the moulder of character and
the maker and shaper of condition environment and destiny.
Good thoughts bear good fruit; bad thoughts bad fruit.
Men are anxious to improve their circumstances but are un-
wililng to improve themselves. The man who (does not shrink from
self-crucifixion can never fail to accomplish the object upon which
his heart is set. .' ' .

The Albany Ga.) Herald discussing "The Secret of Saving"
"Learn how to save. The secret of it is in the systematic put-
ting aside of a part of whatever earning or income a man or a
woman may have. It may be a small percentage of the whole
that can be taken out weekly or monthly and .'salted down' but
if the beginning is made early in life it is astonishing what the
result will be in the end."
Roger W. Babson well-known economist and business author-
ity says: 'Thrift produces prosperity. To develop individual
thrift is a pressing national problem. Thriftlessness the Ameri-
can characteristic is due to a lack of "know-how.' Almost anv
man who tried tp run his own husiness in the way he finances his
home without a definite planwould end in bankruptcy."
