And love can live.

Surcease to human suffering
Or solace give.

Of pain afar;

Of what you'd sacrifice for him
Who suffers on the hellish rim

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of coutse, 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. And, if you invest the money you save
kin War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.
