Some folks complain that they
simply can not live within their
income. Try keeping an expense
account. It is simple, cheap and ef-
fective. Indiscriminate spending
of money causes one to get in
debt and to become discouraged.
When the ledger shows how
much was made each month, and
for what each nickle was spent,
then the many wrays of saving are
presented. Try the plan.

with cheerful greetings, bring-

As the many small holts are
essential in the perfecting of the

During the past three or four
weeks we have had about a dozen
people to bring a clipping from
the Dallas Semi-Weekly News
and other papers containing what
is supposed to be a letter written
by Christ. All of these parties
are anxious to have it published,
for they seem to think that some-
thing terrible will happen
them if they do not. The only
reason in the world we would
publish this bunch of “bunk
would be to satisfy the curiosity
and superstition of people, but
we have published it some “hum
pteen” dozen times since having
been in the newspaper business
and we do not want to publish
it again. We will say, however,
for the benefit of those who
treasure it, that this letter most
likely originated in some corner
of a newspaper office ly a cor
respondent or reporter who had
a little time to spare and wanted
to start something—and, believe
me, he has started something.
This letter fust appeared about
twenty years ago, which only the
more indicates that some re-
porter of a mischievous nature,
is its real author. Don’t be
afraid of the letter mentioned.
There is absolutely nothing in it,
and to publish it would be throw
ing away perfectly good space
that could be utilized in helping
to win the war.

TANK BATTALION SAVES A

made this statement while dis-

We have used in the fighting
to date only a fraction of the
men the enemy has been accus-
tomed to employ for similar of-
fensives, and we have made up
the difference largely with tanks.
Since the ultimate victory will
fall to the side with the biggest
reserves, the more tanks we have
the most assured our victory.
Similarly the more numerous
the tanks the less risk of their
being knocked out. A German
anti-tank gunner can deal with
one or two, perhaps, but he is
overwhelmed with dozens.
It has been commonly thought
a direct hit by a shell means de-
struction. A fortnight ago a tank
received seven direct hit from a
German ‘seventy-seven’ gun, but
the tank finished its job and
trundled back to its lines.
“Another in the Cambrai re-
gion was fired on by a howitzer
fifty yards away, and a shell tore
off part of the tank’s side. But
the tank went right on, driving
over the howitzer and putting it
out of action.”

deputy minister of munitions,
