A DOLLAR WASTED JfiELPS 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 raan's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything net 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
