A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we s 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
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.

U..D. C. Quilting Bee
The members of the Daughters of
the Confederacy are well known en entertainers,
tertainers, entertainers, having a wide reputation
for their unfailing hospitality, so
when the announcement was made
that a quilting bee would be given by
Dickison chapter at '. the home of its
president, Mrs. W. W. Harriss, the
occasion was looked forward to with
interest. And indeed the happy an anticipations
ticipations anticipations in no wise exceeded the
pleasant realization, for the day was
one of great happiness to the entire
membership. : -' '
The' party held forth in the large
sitting room, where two old-fashioned
frames holding two beautiful
quilts were placed. These quilts had
been generously donated by Mrs. E.
L. Carney, who always works with
unselfish and untiring devotion for
the cause which lies so close to her
heart. :X ; 5 'V.'
One could almost imagine that "ye
olden times" had returned again, as
the daughters gathered around these
frames and with nimble fingers bus busily
ily busily engaged themselves in the work
assigned!- Here wit and wisdom also
found full sway, so merrily chatting
while busily working, the hour for
dinner arrived before one bad time to
realize how quickly the time had
passed. - ;
Mrs. Harriss, who is loved by the
entire chapter,, is well known for her
cordiality of manner. She is an ideal
hostess at all times, and yesterday
was no exception to her rule, as all
soon found when invited out to the
beautiful park surrounding her home,
where the bounteous picnic lunches
prepared by the -daughters were
spread on attractive tables placed
there for this occasion.
Sewing was resumed as soon as
full justice had been done to the
bountiful repast, and at 6 o'clock the
quilts were lifted from their frames,
completely finished. Upon the upper
side of each quilt was placed the fol following
lowing following inscription, done in indellible
. "From Dickison Chapter, U. D. C."
