QUICK FACTS ABOUT
U.S. SAVINGS BONDS


A United States Defense
Savings Bond is proof that
you have loaned money to the
government for national de-
fense. The full faith and credit
of the United States govern-
ment are pledged for payment
of principal and interest on
each bond.
The treasury has divided
Defense Bonds into three
groups: Series E, F and G.
These bonds may be obtained
for cash, or in exchange for
Defense Savings Stamps.
For example, a stamp album
containing 75 of the 25-cent
Defense Stamps represents
$18.75 and buys an E Bond
worth $25 in 10 years. An al-
bum filled with 75 of the 1 *-
cent Defense Stamps repre-
setns $37.50 and buys an E
Bond worth $50 in 10 years.
Albums containing 75 of the
$1 Defense Stamps or 15 of
the $5 Defense Stamps repre-
sents $75 and buys an E Bond
worth $100 in 10 years.
Series F and G of the De-
fense Savings Bonds are for
persons or corporations accus-
tomed to investing larger
earnings, and are available in
denominations from $100 to
$10,000.

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the pr-ated word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

WHAT IS A WHEELBERGH?
A Wheelbergh is a not-so-quiet birdman of
the ostrich family. Its main habitat is in the
temperate zone, where it enjoys all the fruits
of nature but is noted for its refusal to de-
fend these advantages. It appears only too
willing to share them with despoilers, who
have only to growl from a distance.
A further distinguishing characteristic of
the Wheelbergh is "day blindness," which
causes it to ignore dangers plainly seen by
others and yet can see nonexistent dangers
in a poorer light.
The Wheelbergh's favorite trick is to bury
its head in sand. Naturalists are at a loss to
explain this strange habit, but think it may
be due to a dislike of looking at anything
that does not resemble itself.
The only sound the Wheelbergh makes is
a harsh, unpleasant scream, .something like
this: "A-pease! A-pease!"-Veronique Hall in
the Milwaukee Journal.

You may have noticed that there are
now fewer poppy seeds in poppyseed rolls.
War is, indeed, just what General Sherman
described it as being.-Washington Star.

Keep it quiet-congress might slap a tax
on radio receivers. We'd object strenuously
to that, but we'd favor a tax on jazz, swing
and crooners.

The trouble with going with a modern girl
is you need a car to go with her.-Columbus
Ledger.

: Some motorists continue to make U-turns
on Reid avenue. Perhaps they read those
"No U" signs as "U Know".

Wonder what became of that best-selling
novel, "Peace On Earth"?


LEGION MEMBERSHIP
There must be a reason that the 1941 na-
tional enrollment of the American Legion
reached 1,079,940 this year-the highest mem-
bership in its 22-year history. The increase
in men carrying Legion membership cards is
20,000 over a year ago, while the number of
active posts climbed to 11,790.
In these times of national emergency you
find American Legion members in many im-
portant spots. In addition to their regular
jobs, you find them in the home defense
units, picking up where they left off more
than 20 years ago. Many of them are in im-
portant city, county, state and federal posi-
tions-both by election and appointment. Not
all ex-service men belong to the Legion, but
growth of Legion membership shows that the
boys know the value of organized effort and
are willing to work again.
The present national commander, Milo J.
Warner, sums it up this way: "In reaching a
new all-time membership mark I feel that the
American Legion is indicating a renewed faith
in our country, the individual rights of our
people, and the eager desire of those who
fought in the last war to preserve them and
fight for them again if necessary."-Fort
Myers News-Press.

COMPENSATION?
Just at the time when the American male
adjusts himself, with a nation-wide sigh, to
the idea of girls without silk stockings, comes
balm to Gilead. Skirts, in a patriotic move to
conserve dress materials, may be shorter.
Though legs may be less glamorous, they'll
be more in evidence than ever if this pro-
posal goes through, thus making up in pro-
fusion what is lost by way of illusion.
As the dignified Ralph Waldo Emerson
once observed in his famous essay on "Com-
pensation": "For everything you have missed
you have gained something else; and tor
everything you gain, you lose something.'"-
NEA Editorial.

Charley \\un Lung says: "Amelican people
vellv funny. They boil tea to make hot,
they putee ice in to make cold, they putee
sugar in to make sweet, then they putee
lemon in to make sour."

ber nipples for babies' bottles. Looks like

The Low Down
from
Willis Swamp

Editor The Star:
Old Boy Adolphus and the pre-
dicament he's in there in Russia
is like it was in the story a fel-
low up in Georgia used to tell.
This Georgia fellow's dad told it
to him, so it has been around
some. It's about old enough for us
to be hearing' it on the radio any
day now. So I'll tell it first-you
can't tune out a newspaper.
Anyway, this Mr. Hitler rushin'
headlong into Rusia is like the
story 'bout the bear that chased
the farmer's wife. A neighbor
passing' by saw the chase and he
hurried out into the farmer's field
and he hollered: "Hey! Henry,
there's a bear in the barn with
your wife."
And the farmer hollered back,
and he says: "Did my wife chase
the bear into the barn, or' vice
versa?"
And the fellow says: "The bear
chased your wife."
So the farmer picked up his hoe
and went back to work, and he
says: "Well,if that's how it hap-


opened, let the bear look out for
his ownself."
Yours with the low down,
