Every small amount invested by a
child in Thrift Stamps tends to-

every Thrift Stamp purchased is a
little momentum toward earlier vic-

strumental in definitely shortening

its own value in money to say noth-

Tho progress of the war is driving
ceiy wideawake American to the
realisation that it Is loyal active ser
vice and not sentiment which will
win tlie war for the allies and their
espoused cause. Kvery resource
folic and sinew of the Nation must
be harnessed on tho side of effl-
tlency. Kfficlency when linked up
with material and moral resource
will open the shortest route to tho
oviTthiovv of the (icrmanlc scheme.
The harvest icasons are about to
kwcpp an oss the continent of Amer-J
ii'.i. and alleadv there la iHscovcro.l '
to be ii shortage of labor which If
not Mipplicil will mean that we will
lose millions of dollars in our cer-
eals and bv I liiil reason fall to sup-
pint our battle-Hues at the front
and those of our allies. There is
talk that the women sh:l u into
the Melds mid help save the crops
as dm Kuiopean women have ilone.
Hut has America coino to the point
wlieiu she is depleted of men and
vniiths to the extent that our mo
theis and sisters must ro Into the
fit Ids to R.ithcr our bread and fool
for the allies? They who have
crowded the Hcd Cross rooms of the
lountiy and supplied the bovs with
woolen garments from tho fireside?
Have they not done enough? Tlicro
ate enoiiRli men in our cities and
villages engaged in unproductive
pursuits: and there are enough
good red-blooded vouths through-
out tho length and breadth of the
land to marshal an army of produc
ers ami conservators such that not
a crop In the season of litis shall
go to waste In continental America
That unmarshaled army as yet can
back every soldier on the bnttle-
llnis in the cantonment and on the
draft subject to call.
The war has settled down to the
pioblem of slow attrition between
the powers of world demorracv and
autocratic world imperialism. Kvery
healthy able-bodied citizen man or
woman boy or girl must awake to
the vital necessity of aligning them-
selves on a productive basis on be-
ball of the Government during the
war. As the war progresses many
of the unproductive pursuits will be
dropped from sheer lack of patron-
age; but the clarion bell of the hour
Is to make the shift on a loyal and
patriotic basis and thus hasten the
program of our Government and
that of the allies n restoring Inter
