SAVINGS MADE SAFE
FOR SMALL INVESTOR
Uncle Sam Provides Protection for
Thrifty Citizen Who Wishes to
Lay Aside Part of Earnings.
This is the day of the small investor.-
The war opened the eyes of some
50,000,000 Americans to the benefits
of investing in government securities;
it minimized to the same extent the
menace of fraudulent promotions in
which many life's savings have been
sunk. War Savings Stamps are mak
ing investing safe for the small saver.
Every small investor should realize
that a dollar saved while money is
the cheapest commodity offered will
purchase twice as much of almost any
other commodity within four or fire
years, so that, in addition to the in
terest that War Savings or other gov
ernment securities yield, the investor
really has earned 100 per cent in the
purchasing power of the dollar saved.
Small sums certainly are worth sav
ing1. Amounts that seem insignificant
soon pile up into figures that are im
pressive. A great French banker was once
asked the secret of French thrift, ana
he replied. "Compound iaterest." Just
as constant waste, even in little
things, may change one's life from
success to failure, so the steady sav
ing of money will eventually bring
independence!! not actual wealth.
There are very few persons who
cannot, without inconvenience, lay
aside 10 cents a day. Within ten.
years one's daily savings of this in
significant sum will amount to $385,
in addition to $80,36 compound in
terest, making a total of $445.36.
By saving 15 cents a day for ten
years, with Interest compounded at 4
per cent, one will have the comfort
able sum of $6(f8.18; 20 cents a day
will net $890.99. Save 60 cents a day
for ten years and there is $2,227.75.
A dollar a day will make a total of
$4,455.74 for the ten-year period.
All these figures are based on the
savings being put out at-4 per cent
compound interest. War Savings
Stamps yield raon than 4 per cent.

There are items in every household
on which too much money is spent.
The fact must be faced that tt too
much is spent on clothing, for In
stance, less must be spent for otkwr
necessities of life.
Saving, however, is the item that
should be most emphasitad. Poor
houses are full of people who did not
have a savings item on their budgets.
Unemployment, sickness, old age and
many other demands necessitate a call
on the reserve fund, the lack of which
will result in suffering and vrant.
Every going enterprise is conducted
on system. If the home fs to be a suc

Pamphlets Giving Outline Course May
Be Had by Writing War Loan
The War Loan Organization of the
Fifth Federal Reserve District at Rich
mond, Va., has just issued an outline
of a course of thrift for elementary
schools. It is designed especially to
meet the needs of teachers beginning
with chapters for the smallest young
sters and continuing to those for pu
pils up to the eighth grade.
- "Thrift in the Schools" contains
fascinating suggestions for the teach
ing of thrift to tile little ones at the
"Mother Goose" age. Then for the
older children there are many other
ways of bringing the lesson . home.
Geography, hygiene, English reading,
budget making and problems in arith
metic adapt themselves to the teach
ing of thrift.
Besides these items the pamphlet
contains suggestions for morning
talks for-aH grades; tentative read
ing lists, with tie names of the pub
lishers of books included ; and, in each
chapter, a paragraph on the practice
of thrift. ;
The summary of the aims of the
leaflet will probably give the best Idea
of the outline
1. To give the child a broad under
standing of the ; specific facts and
underlying principles of thrift.
2. To train the child in the habits
of conservation and the wise use of
all his resources.
3. To create threugh the schools a
public sentiment in favor of thrift and
economy, and through this public sen
timent, to cultivate the national
habit of thrift.
The War Loa Organization in
Richmqnd will furnish these leaflets
in any quantity, free of charge.
