the savings habit, preferring to spend
all we make searching for pleasure
that never come. It is a delusion and
snare, this searching for pleasure,
this wanting to Go, this wanting to
spend extravagantly; all of which
puts us in the frame of mind that we
can treat our neighbor as ourselves.
Most every magazine and news
paper is telling of the "social unrest"
and that if so-and-so is not done that
we are going to be thrown into
state of anarchy or something just as
bad. May be so. This much is rer-
tram however; If the individual does
not prepare NOW for that storm
that is inevitable he will most
tainly suffer. -
lhe carrying on of the ' rich at
places like Palm Beach, is nauseous,
and disgusting. Dispatches from
there tell of large sums spent on
purchases of houses to be torn down
because they could not, be utilized to
meet the social standard set by the
enormously rich. "My, what a long
tail our cat's got".' This idea is pas
sed all along the line even in small
communities. An bid German called
to his wife, who was cooking and
said, "Mom, open der vindows and let
der neighbors smell our sausages."
When will the good old American
"horse sense come to our rescue?
To wbrk a' little, play a little and
save a little; lead clean- wholesome
ives, and teach our children the glory
of work and to serve. The vidle rich"
problem is solving itself as evidenced
by the many plans in operation for
taxing incomes, sur-taxes, inherit
ance taxes etc and mark you these
taxes will become heavier.
To summarize; Work more, spend
less; Buy a home, carry, life and
health insurance and . of : course fire
insurance. Recreation is as essential
as work, so when you play let it be
of a nature to strengthen you phys
ically and mentally. Open a savings
account in this bank even if you have
only one dollar and add to that dollar
