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 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. And. if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money

The flowers on the window shelf
Are very sweet and bright,
But they always grow one-sided
If I do not turn them right.
"And what is right?" I hear you ask.
Just daily turned around
Until the light from yonder sun
Each barren spot has found.
The sun's attractive powers draw
The side that is exposed,
Till tiny bud3 and blossoms spring
And thus the flower grows.
So many faulty human plants
This lesson will not learn,
They always grow one-sided,
Because they will not turn.
Their branches, weak and tender)
Should receive a little light,
They need to face the sun awhile

Woman's Part in the Play
"The first step is just to keep om
own selves physically fit." i
This is the one time when every
woman's first duty is to herself, to her
family and to her nation is to keep
robustly well. Today there is' no rooni
for "ailments" or "nerves," when
doctors are needed to care for more
serious illness. This is a time of un uncertainty;
certainty; uncertainty; we wonder how we can
possibly manage our home in these
times of high prices. But it is our
duty to' banish such thoughts. Wo
must build up in ourselves our inner
faith iri the final outcome, so we can
create the same spirit of confidence
in others. Now is a splendid time
for housekeepers to rise up and show
the world their skill in managing.
When our husbands come home to
dinner, why remark that "steak is
high and butter higher," etc. Instead
smile and serve a 'vegetable pot roast
at half the cost and a cream sauce
made with oil so delicious as to take
the worry from the face of him you
love. And when certain foods are
high, it becomes most interesting to
study and learn" the use of substi
tutes which will be just as appetizing
and even more nourishing at less cost.
