The above quotation from the j?reat Belgian philosopher and writer viv idly expresses his high opion of gamb- mg. i he great , American trait is gambling inTsome form or another. not at the gamin-table we gamble on the future-by frittering away our income in our productive period. We an to nave sufficient life insurance to keep the family as they were kept in our lifetime. We will nnt : niiU-iWo 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 cer- 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 weekly as much as vou can.
