Some boy and girl in the national
capital will have the honor of tagging
President Wilson's shovel in the fur

The following statements are made
by the federal f .1 administration in
connection with this great project:
"Tag-Your-Shovel Day,' becomes
the children's draft day, the day of
their enlistment in the world war in
defense of childhood, the day of their
partnership in national ideals and na
The government is placing a trust
in the hands of the school boys and
school girls. It is relying upon them,
as an arm of the service, to become
little missionaries of thrift, to carry
to their own homes the message,
ASave coal," and to be the consecra
tors of the family coal-shovel to the
world-wide cause of humanity.
As effective as a great army with
banners v;ill be this midwinter cam
paign of 20,350,000 American school
children,' the largest organized unit in
the world, in their compelling drive
against fuel waste and coal shortage.
The government authorities at
Washington have set their heart upon
this co-operative attack by the chil
dren against coal waste, not only be
cause of the total actual saving of
fuel thus to be gained, but because of
the deep educational value that will
lie in the enlistment of the youth of
the land in a war thrift crusade.
And the thing to be saved by the
"Tag-Your-Shovel" day is coat. For
we are at war. And this is a power
war. Coal is power. Coal is trans
portation. We are 50,000,000 tons
short on coal.
