SALVATION ARMY'S HOME
SERVICE PROGRAM 1920
The Interest with which the Salva-
tion Army's Home Service program
has been received in the Southwest is
a source of extreme gratification to
Lieutenant Colonel George Wood,
chief provincial officer in command
of the territory which embraces Tex-
as, Oklahma and Louisiana.
"Already more than one hundred
boards have been formed in the var-
ious counties in this divsion," Col-
onel Wood said yesterday, "and in
every case the leading men of each
community have shown themselves
anxious to assist the Salvation Army
in its policy of rendering service of
the tried and truo kind, wherever
service is needer and possible. It is
hoped by early fall that a function-
ing board will be in operation in
practically every county.
With the formation" of these
boards all of the Salvation Army's
sixteen major activities are placed at
the disposal of the county. These
are relief work, rescue and mater-
nity homes, young women's boarding
homes, industrial homes, working
men's hotels, fresh air camps, Christ-
mas dinners, free employment bu-
reaus, prison work, juvenile indus-
trial and agricultural schools and
farms, boys friend bureau, missing
friends bureau, anti-sucde bureau,
work among servee men, field and
evangelistic work and emergency
In accepting the moteriol chair-
manship, Frankln K. Lane, former
secretary of-the Interior, said, "There
is no agency for doing yood of which
this county is more proud than the
Salvation Armf. Your great service
is that of putting heart into men
who have weakened. This is human
re-construction. You establish self-
respeet. You lay the foundation for
re-building character and self-con-
trol. You give aim to those who are
purposeless and hope to those who
have lost hope. This is a glorious
work. There can be none nobler
and to be a party to such work is an
honor in which every one can share."
In similar vein Governor Oliver H.
Shoup of Colorado said, "It seems to
me that the Home Service Program
for this yearreflects the new ideals
which have come to the Salvation
Army from its war-time activities. It
seems to me that there is great op-
portunity to do a great work along
the lines Indicated without duplicat-
ing the field of any other agency."
Perhaps the finest endorsement of
the Salvation Army's Home Service
Program was that given by Vice-
President Thomas R.Marshal in ad-
dressing the convention of the Salva-
tion Army Advisory Boards at Phoe-
nix, Ariz., when he said, "It is my
deliberate judgment that there is not
anything In the world today that Is
comparable to what the Salvation
Army les doing for human kind."
COINS OF THRIFT.
If the increase in the number of
pennies in circulation since the war
began measured the increase in fru-
gality, the people of France would
have nothing on- Americans in the
saving of sous. The capitalization of
France is based upon the sou, the
equivalent of the American cent.
Nine-tenths of the accumulations in
France, it has been declared, begin
in sous; But to an American a cent
is an inconsiderable triue; It requires
one hundred to make his unit of val-
ue. A "broken" dollar becomes fra-
gments to be dissipated; a dime is a
trifle, a nickle only fit for carfare or
The statistical record of increase in
the number of pennies Is. interesting,
however, as showing that it is not for
lack of small coins that the American
people do not practice the rigid econ-
omy of the French and other Euro-
peans. ' Before the war the mints of
the country turned out 4 million
pennies a year, which was an ade-
quate suitply. Since July, 1919, the
mints have turned out sixty million
each month and are still punching
the coins at that rate. Before the
war twenty-eight million nickles
were required annually; now the
mints are turning them out at the
rate of one hundred million. But
all of this vast coinage seems to be
slipping through the fingers of those
Americans who boast of the high
standard of living, and from this ex-
pensive vantage look down with dis-
dain upon the foreign-born plodder
who has brought with him some of
his frugality which was bred into
him by penny saving ancestors.
MACHINERY SPACE BEING
RESERVED EARLY AT FAIR
MUSKOGEE, Aug. 4 —Space in
the Machinery Field at the Okla-
homa Free State Fair, to beheld in
Muskogee October 4 to 9, is being
eagerly reserved this year and late
comers who postpone securing space
reservations until shortly before the
exhibition opens are liable to a sad
Although the fair is still nearly
three months distant nearly a score
of exhibitors have already booked
space and contracts are signed for
This year will mark the Fifth An-
nual exhibition of the Oklahoma Free
State Fair and promises to far outdo
all previous exhibitions. Last year
the Oklahoma Free State Fair was in
many respects the most notable ex-
hibition of the kind in the South-
west. Not only were the crowds
tremendous but the exhibits in every
department filled every available
inch of space In the commodious new
buildings and overflowed into tents
and temporary halls hastily erected.
This year ample provision Is being
made to care for the huge displays
that will be a feature of the fair.
One of the machinery exhibitors, a
northern man whose company will
have a big exhibit at the Fair this
year was not among last year's ex-
hibitors. But he made a tour of the
different fairs with a view of select-
ing those at which his company
would exhibit this year and he was
one of the first toreserve space in the
Machinery Feld at the Oklahoma
Free State Fair, this year.
Writing to Mrs. Ethel Murray Si-
monds, secretary of the Oklahoma
Free State Fair, when he secured the
space in the Machinery Field, this
"Last year I visited a number of
Fairs with a view of selecting those
at which our company would ^exhibit
this year. The Oklahoma Free State
Fair was among the number and I
want to tell .you that It was a won-
der. In many departments, especial-
ly in agriculture and In the lives stock
show you hadthe best Fair in the
southwest, in fact I can truthfully
say that in many respects it was the
best fair I ever saw and I have seen
There is no doubt thatthe splendid
exhibition of Farm Machinery at the
Oklahoma Free SCtate Fair last year
had Influence on the agriculture of
Oklahoma this year. Interest in
modern farming methods was great-
ly stimulated and this summer thru-
out the state it is evident that farm-
ers are using more and better ma-
chinery, in Most instances machin-
ery that they saw demonstrated and
became interested in at the Oklaho-
ma Free State Fair last Fall.
As an agricultural state Oklahoma
is almost in its infancy and with a
wonderful future. The market for
modern farm machinery Is nowhere
wetter than In this state and both
the agriculturist and the machinery
dealer have greatly profited by, the
showing of farm machinery that the
Oklahoma Free State Fair made last
year. This year the farmers are in-
terested in the prospect of a great
machinery exhibit. They have had
splendid grain crops, and their suc-
ceiss with grain has marked the
third or fourth season in succession
th&t crops have been tremendous
and have sold for big prices. The
farmers of Oklahoma are prosperous.
The majority are out of debt, with
money to spend for farm equipment
and with interest in machinery that
will minimize farm labor, keenly
aroused. They arecoming to the Ok-
lahoma Free State Fair this year to
buy the best farm machinery that can
be found and they will find it at this

mostly men, sailed from the United

cording to reports to Commissioner
General Caminette of the Immigra-
"Large number of the men left to

the United States are women," Catu-

605,000 during the year.
Women greatly outnumber the
men in England, France, Italy, and
nearly all European countries. This
is partly a result of the war. After
