P" FROM JACK McCULLY
Editor Star: Please allow me space
to answer Mr. G. A. Waters' article
of the 22nd inst., in reference to the
fence or no-fence. I am opposed to
the no-fence law in this county for
various reasons: First, the people are
not ready for it; we have too much
range land for hogs and cattle. Mar Marion
ion Marion county has by actual figures 19
per cent of .her land under fence.
K That includes pastures and all. What
V are we going to do with the 81 per
cent of land lying idle in the woods?
I say let the stock range on it. If the
owners of the land object to stock
running on their land, then let them
fence it and rent it for pastures. I
want to be just and fair to all. I
realize in some parts of this county
the people are beginning to consider
this no-fence proposition seriously.
My idea is if the majority of the free freeholders
holders freeholders in a precinct voted to inclose
. the hogs and let a three or four four-strand
strand four-strand barbed wise fence constitute
a lawful fence, then let them have it.
jk If this proves beneficial, others will
lail m line. 1 Know me people siiuuiu
decide all such questions. I realize we
are in the greatest war the world has
ever known and I don't think it's any
time to bring about any experimental
changes. We had better let well
enough alone. I am in favor of re reducing

shot a hole in his sister's ankle.
The new spring stockings certainly

Ever realize that every dollar you spend makes some one
work? Of course the work was done before you spent your dollars,
but if you arid many others didn't spend money for certain articles,
other men would cease to make them. They would then devote
their services to something else for which there was a demand.
Just now the demand for "Goods and Services" for war purposes
is greater than the supply. Therefore when you refrain from buy buying
ing buying the things not absolutely necessary for health and efficiency,
you are releasing labor and materials which our Government Government-needs
needs Government-needs to win the war.
Enlist your slacker quarters Buy with each a Thrift Stamp.
Sixteen Thrift Stamps and 15 cents may be exchanged for a War
Savings Stamp, worth $5 on January 1, 1923. You can get your
money back with interest at any time.

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. Ani. if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
