THRIFT DAY TO BE -OBSERVED
Nation-Wide Move to Find a
Method . to Combat the
Present H. 0. L.
THRIFT IS A BROAD IDEA
"Thrift day" will be observed all
over the country today. '.
This observance of '"Thrift day"
comes as the result of inquiries to
find a method of'combating the high
cost of living, which has become such
a serious "problem in the last few
Investigation has disclosed the fact
that lack of thriftiness on the part of
a great percentage of the American
public is one of the primary reasons
for the increased cost of living.
American extravagance has in a large
way brought on the higher prices..
The American is wont to recklessly
spend large sums for luxuries. He
objects to paying big prices for neces
sities, and then unhesitatingly digs
down into the family roll to purchase
something that is strictly a luxury.
Reason for Thrift Day.
To curb this extravagant tendency
"Thrift day" was born. .A campaign
to teach the American the ten com
mandments of thrift starts on -this
day, and it is hoped the campaign Will
be so successful as to alleviate in a
large manner the suffering, or at least
the anuoyance, caused by the high
c$st of living.
When the subject of thrift is
broached the ordinary person is gen
erally inclined to interpret the term
as meaning the saving of money. But
thrift has a broader meaning than
this. A man who is thrifty does not
necessarily have to be a tightwad, so
careful of money matters that1 it is
painful both to him and to others;
who counts every penny with
thoughtful care and spends it. with
regret,dcnies himself every rightful
pleasure, wears- his clothes until they
are threadbare, eats the nUinest
foods and deposits his money in the
savings bank with clock-like regu
larity. ' , ,
To Save Consistently.
This is a narrow thrift and not a
true thrift. The man of true thrift
works hard, spends his money wisely',
not niggardly, and saves consistently.
That is true thrift. We construe the
word wrongly when we make it syn
onymous with self-denial. Thrift
means remember tomorrow, but do
not forget today.
Thrift is largely sa matter of edu
cation. By the "Thrift day" cam
paign it is hoped to teach the young
er generation that a broad and help
ful thrift is the best thing for himself
and his neighbor, and to correct' the
older generation in the mistakes it
has been making and which have had
such a big part in bringing about the
high cost of living terror.
