NEXT WEEK THRIFT WEEK
. The war left tbe people of our
country in an unsettled condition.
Profiteering and inflation led to
an orgy of reckless spending that
threatened to wreck our -land.. It
was to combat, this tendency and
to teach, our children the prin-
ciples of true economy and wise
expenditure that the institution of
thrift week was established three
years ago, sponsored by the Nat-
ional Y, M, C. A. The effects of
this movement have proved so
'gratifying that thrift week has
come to stay. ;
It begins on the 17th of Janu-
ary, the anniversary of the birth
of Benjamin Franklin, who was
one of oi^r earliest and best ex-
ponents of thrift. The national
committee has designated certain
days of the week for the stressing
of certain phases of thrift.
The first day, Thursday, is
Thrift Day. Friday is Budget
Day; Saturday is Pay Bills Day;
Sunday is Share With Others
Day; Mofiday is Life Insurance
Day; Tuesday is Own Your Home
Day; and Wednesday is Make a
The -government is doing its
part to get the thrift idea before
the masses of its people. The
postoffice department will use ten
thousand large streamers on mail
wagon^ during the week. Maga-
zines and newspapers are giving
publicity; The General Federa-
tion of Women's Clubs is assist-
nig, apd Banks all over the coun-
try are ar?anging to have school
children make visits and learn
something of handling funds. We
at Tai>Ieton haven't) much money,
but we surely do want to get the
best possible results from what
little we have, so we are for
Thrift Week. <
Yes, and we are waiting for
someone to make a New years

^FTER THE GAME
The football game was over,
And by the parlor grate
A maid and long-haired-youth .
Were sitting rather late,'
They talked of goals and touch-
But found it rather tame,
Till Cupid put his nose guard on
And butted in the game.
Quoth he, "It's mighty funny
If I don't make a match,"
And so he lined the couple up
And made them toe the scratch.
The Youth was getting nervous
'Neath the weight of new-found
And kinda thought the scrimmage
Ought to end up with a kiss.
He charged upon the center—
He tackled left and right—
And the way they held that chair
Was simply out of sight!
He tried an osculation—
(Just an amateur affair)
But lost it on the fumble,
And instead it struck the air.
Then as he landed on his ear
He heard the maiden say,
"You're penalized, for holding,,
Jim, ' *
Likewise for off-side play!"
With teeth set hard he tried an-
And this succeeded fine,
For he scored an easy touchdown"
On that crimson two inch line!
Then as they sat there by the
Communing soul with soul,
The parlor door swung open—
And Father kicked the goal! ,
NOT THAT KIND OF A DANE
A lover of fine dogs was out
walkii; with a K :-t -Dane at
.leash. Two ladies were admiring
"What a wonderful Dane!"
"I suppose you call him Ham-
let," chimed in the other,
Officer: "See that man stand-
ing on that. bridge, four miles
Gunner: "Ay, aye, Sir."
Officer; "Put a twelve inch
through his eye."
Gunner: "Which eye, Sir?"
We are,anxiously awaiting the
announcement that the champions
in physical training are to elect
sponsers from the. Cadet Corps.
Headlines in daily: "Laborer
Ne^t day: "Crowd of unemploy-
ed atom chemical plant."
Capt. Crowley to Bennett (who
has on dirty shirt): "Hqw long
do you wear a shirt, Bennett?
Bennett: "About a foot below
my waist, Sir."
Harris: "Do you care if I
Flora Smith: "I don't care if
]Vj>. Eaves: "And how was
Alexander III killed?"
Baker: "By a bomb."
Mr. Eaves: "How can,you ac-
count for .it?"
Durham: "It exploded."
Wisdom is learned from failure
as well as from success.
If you are using out-of.town bread just try a loaf
of Snow White, home baked and see how much
better it is.
