BODE PUSHING SALE THRIFT STAMPS
Appeals to Gtiunt of Balduiin
and Nearby Villaget
Counnelor George M. Bode recently appointed manager of the Thrift Campaign at Baldwin has written the following communication at consider¬ able interest and its application ahoukl not be confined to Baldwin alone- The communication: |
The present Thrift Canrrpaign is , by far the most important campaign ' yet undertaken by the Nation be¬ hind the actual fighting lines.
Thrift as a principle is a lost quan¬ tity in many American lives, especial¬ ly in the rising generation. }
The present war is the greatest physical struggle that the world has known. Following the establishment of peace will come the greatest eco- nonnc struggle on the part of each nation now at war to regain ita eco- i nomic and commercial supremacy and to the diligent will go the race. |
"The American Nation is not re¬ nowned for thrift. It haa tbe repu¬ tation of being the most extravagant and wasteful among the nations.
Thrift must be learned, not hy a •pasmwlic fit of saving, but by a painstaking consideration of expendi- iiire.'* and the elimination therefrom ot all items not for the l>e8t interest of the individual, his family and his country. No expenditure is too small to receive attention. If you are smok¬ ing five cigars a day, will not 3 cigars do you not (luite ho much harm and might not tne difference be saved? (an you not add lo your health und wealtn by omitting a dessert from your lunch? Can you not eat a light¬ er and less expensive lunth frequent¬ ly to your own decided advantage, and save the difference in the price'.' These are .small saving.-* but each twenty-five cents saved will buy a ; 'llirift Stamp.
Do your children receive an allow¬ ance? If so, have them earn it by rendering soiree service in the home. It will then \)C money honestly earn¬ ed and appreciated. Do they regulate the spending of their own money? Then inclucate in them the principle of Thrift—right spending and sav¬ ing. "To the average boy and girl of today, twenty-five cents means simp¬ ly this—a trip to the movies, a bag of candy or peanuts to eat during the show and a soda or a sundae af¬ ter the show. Is this necessary? Here i.'' a golden opportunity to teach the children ^ lesson in Thrift. The mov- u^'i fhemselves may be gowl and de- , airable, frequently educational as ! well as entertaining. The refresh¬ ments are not necessary. Ivct them abstain from those and save the monv toward ii Thrift Stamp. Thia teadhes, in one lesson, self-denial, : self-discipline, saving and invest- I m''nt.
Here is where the Govemment makes available a grand opportunity. 'lh>«e small savings, the result of i aelf-dendal, |self-restraint, se^f-disci- ; pline, can be invested as soon as they amount to twenty-five cents in the best of all securities—-United State Thrift Stamps. These in turn can be exchanged for War Savings Stamps, i.'niled iStates Government securities' bearing interest at 4 per cent, com- i pounded quarterly. Such an aid to i thrift, and such an opportunity for ' the wist' and .safe investment of the results of thr^^ has nevor heen offer- ¦ cd at any time by any government.
The boys and girLs of today will be the men and women of the future. They will have to cope with tho gr?!it economic strujxgle that will follow the war. If the children h;iv." beon taught self-discipline, self-denial, wisdom in spending and savin,!?, they will have learned the greatest lesson in thrift that a person or a nation can learn.
Parents, this is your opportunity. Inoulcat? the principles of thrift in your children. By a livinsr example of its teachings by practising them yourselves and you and they will be j doing your "bit" to help win the war.
The savings in any individual case may be small: but the aggregate among 100,000,000 peopk will ba .much in a year's time, and if that ag- , gregate is loaned to the Government j it will help to win the war.
The men at the front are offering ' their lives in the cause. We, at home should not hesitate to make any sac¬ rifice of luxury or comfort to sustain ' them, i
In a despotism like Germany the - principles of thrift are enforced upon i the population by the government. In : a democracy, they must be imposed j by the people upon themselves.
C/onsiaer. Begin now to get the I habit of thrift Spend judiciously, aave systematically, lend to your country generously, and help win the war. Your country needs it, you need it, your children need it. Buy a Thrift Stamp today, tomorrow, ev¬ ery day.

FREEPORT RAISES Tie SERVICE FLAGS
(Continued from pace 1)
raised a service flag on Friday after¬ noon. Counselor Albin N. Johnson of the Class of '93, delivered an addres< as follows:
By Albin N. Johnnon, of Class
of '9:\, and former President of
Board of Fxlucation, at raising
of Service Flag by Freeport
High School on March «, 'P'«.
By service were the American Con¬ tinents discovered, their natural re¬ sources developed and their vast ex¬ panse peopled.
By service were the United Slates of America constructed on founda¬ tion prim'iples that men are endowed with inalienatole rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and that govern-Tienta derive their jtist powers from the consent of the gov¬ erned; and, therefore, its sunrises of wonderful anticipations have been continually succeeded by sunsets of magnificent achievements.
By service there has grown here from the forest clearing of 1650 this attractive village of Freeport and from the one-story school house, with its pine desks and rough slab benches, the present well equipped schools, so many of whose scholars have now gone forth to help "make the world safe for democracy."
By service only shall we speed the .\ge of the (Jolden Rule when nations, aa well as individuals, shall do unto others as they would have others do unto them.
The nre-eininent factor in the ac¬ complishment by mankind of things of real value has always embraced the ideas, ideals and performances in¬ cluded in the sij^nificant word, iterrire. It nas three very noticeable charac¬ teristics—courage, unselfishness ami loyjilty.
Courage is the motor quality of ser¬ vice. Talent, experience, high pur- i (1-1-, boundless resources are of no avail without courage. Valuable may be the cargo, splendid the ship, ad- nural.'ie tbe ])lan of owner and crew, all are worthless unless there is also proplusive force. The physical ami moral coujage of our brave boys is not dependent on heridity or environ¬ ment, nor (launtpd by threatened danger, discouraging conditions or pcr.sislent obstacles, for they are "Meh who their duties know.
But know their rights, and, know¬ ing, dare rnaintain. Prevent the lonf-aimed blow,
.\nd crush the tyrant while they rend the chain."
Unselfishness is the motive quality of service. Tell me the motive which prompts your deeds and I will be able to estimate their true worth. We oft rejoice that God can read the heart and so correctly judge our deeds by the internal motive rather than the external appearance. The unselfish ileges and opportunities. Greater love hath no man than that which has so exalted a motive as to make him willing, even glad, to lay down his life, and all it contains, to obtain for others increased blessings. And, when our boys, as one of them, W. Clinton Story, so recently has done, goes forth in the fine strength and intel- liirence of early manhood, leaving lov¬ ing relatives, admiring friends and all the comforts which were his to en¬ joy, and gives up his life in the ser¬ vice of his country, we gratefully thank God for the unselfishness of those who count not the cost but the greatness of the end to be attained.
Loyalty is th^ objective quality of service. It exalts the deed. Not to any trivial or unworthy object docs it attach its chariot. To love of God, of mankind, of country and of home, it pleriges its alleu'iance. No thinir too small, no sacrifice too great, all are brought to make sweet incense upon the .nltars consecrated to these sulilinie objects of its veneration and e.steem. Steadfastly il ever steers its bark under the control of high ideals.
.And so we now raise this rServiee F'lag, with it.s many stars and the ml color of which shall remind us of courage, the white color of the unselfishness and the blue color of the loyalty of our own dear boys on land and sea. God grant to all his guidance and protecting care.
TRYING TO ENLIST 4-MINUTE MEN
The Committee on Public Informa¬ tion, comprised of the Secretary of War. the Secretary of the Navy, Sec¬ retary of the Treasury and Cieorge Creel, have for some montha main¬ tained a division of their committee tailed the "Four Minute iMen." These men speak to moving picture audi¬ ences and at other patriotic gather¬ ings in their avm neighboring towns, for four minutes, on sirbjects that are selected at Washington and are changed every three or four weeks.
These volunteer speakers are doing an excellent patriotic work for the country these times, in-as-much as they give to the public the direct and official views of the policies of the Government at Washington.
Not long ago President Wilson made public a letter highly commend¬ ing the importance of the work of these Four Minute Men. P]very coun¬ ty in the United States is to be or¬ ganized, and the Nassau County di¬ vision nas already been startedf; in fact it has been active for the past three or four months. However, the needs of the situation demand that there be a local representative in fivory town of the county, and those who feel patriotic enough to do so and have the ability to address an audi¬ ence are urged to apply to George J. Hoag, Mineola, who is chairman for Nassau County. He will send ap¬ plication blanks and a copy of the official Ibulletin entitled "Plan and . Purpose of the Four Minute Men" to all interested.

John Lyon of Rockville Centre has issued a challenge to any corn grow¬ er, either on Long Island or else¬ where, to a contest, which will de¬ termine the percentage weight of com on the ear. The conditions of this contest are as follows. All those desiring to compete must wenght out a bushel of 70 lb. on the ear and send to the Nassau County Farm Bureau at Mineola, before April lst. The corn will then be shelled and tha kernels weighed.

It is suggested that all men having good corn compete in tliis contort, be¬ cause it will Dring out tho i-eiative value of various varieties and strains in regard to this point, which is real¬ ly an important point to consider in raising. y

L I. Clab Observes 25th Year by Dinner and Election
Republican leaders in Oyster Bay and North Hempstead and not a few Democrats in those townships are claiming that one result of the bill if passed to give Hempstead town two Supervisors, will be to block, forever if pre«vnt party line remain as they are, the chances of the l>e»n- ocrats from getting a controlling vote in the Board of Supervisors. The prophets at the .same time point out that th*" i>em'nicrats are partly to blame for this, since not a few of them, including Dr. J. Carl Schmuck, one of the party leaders, were in favor of the bill.
Those who predict ill for the Dem¬ ocrats figures it this way: The new bill will probably give a total of eight votes to the Supervisors from Hempstead and five to North Hemp¬ stead, Oyster Bay and CJlen Cove City. The Re»publicans from the north side townships, remenVbering past elections, ar* not so sanguine about the prospect of keeping Republicans in the Board of Supervisors in their dis¬ tricts as they are over the outlook for Hempstead Republicans to do so.
Both parties concede that Glen Cove is apt to have a Democratic Supervisor for some years bnit the wiseavres say that North liempstead and (Jyster Bay may go Democratic at a 'Town Election any time. They say even if every member of the Board from the north side is a Dem¬ ocrat it will avail nothing, since Hempstead is normally, ftverwhelm- ingly Republican, and the Hempstead members could by voting together, which they naturally would do, out¬ vote the other three members.
