FARMERS TURN SALES
INTO SAYING STAMPS
Odd Crops ef Great, Aid to Thrifty
Tillers of Soli in This District.
Farmers who are making a habit
of getting a few Thrift Stamps every
tlste they market anything 'from
their rarms are finding that they are ;
able to save regulaly : and that, they
do not miss the small amounts in
vested. The average farmer in this
section of the country depends, large
ly on his "mooey" crop, which he har
vests once a year. Almost every one
of them, however, grows something
else1 which he markets at odd times.
An' occasional .load of hay may be
taken into town and Isold. The thrifty
farmers also plant peas, beans, okra,
lettuce, beets or some of the other
vegetables which thrive in the South
' and for which there is a ready market.
Butter and eggs 'form staple articles
fo he marketed between seasons.
By buying just a "few Thrift
- istanrps each time the farm
makes a haul to town, the farmer or
his wife is providng a fund which they
will be able to turn to good account
later on, for' when these Thrift
Stamps are exchanged tor War Sav
ings Stamp, they increase in value
automatically, and may . always be
turned into cash on ten. days' written
notice to the postmaster, although the
kmger they are kept the more they
earn. ' -

Asks fer Ce-operatlen.
Secretary Glass, In a recent inter
view given at Washington, discussed
War Stamps as a permanent invest
ment -as follows:
"WAR Savings Stamps afford an ex
cellent vehicle for increasing capital
and earning power. Many person
have not taken the War Savings
Stamps seriously as an investment
but the fact that they may be bought
in as large a quantity -as $1,000 face
value during 181f, at such favorable
interest return, makes them most de
sirable for the average man or family.
"Definite plans for-the continuance
of the issue in coming years of email
Government securities are heing work
ed out . " . v i - - v
"Although War Savings Stamps
sales this year do not approach the
high marks made under stimulation of
war need last year, theirv absorption
by the public thus far has been sags
factory. ; ' - . ; r .N -
Savings in all channels shrank dur
ing the early months of the year, and
it is expected that. War. Savings Stamp
sales, along, with postal savings and
savings: bank deposits, will grow
steadily throughout the year. ' .v -.

the matter of keeping Thrift and War
Savings , Stamps on sale, se that no
one so inclined may fan tokave oppor
