The Money Wasted "Over
Here" Would Save Lives
"Red Cross Week" begins January First and ends
December Thirty-first this year and every year until the
war is won.
Liberty Bonds are on sale every minute in evefy day
everywhere. The man or woman who adopts the "I'm
glad that's over with" attitude and is not systematically
doing all in their power to help finance humanity's war,
would be paying tribute to the Kaiser today if the boys
in-the trenches were as recreant to duty as some of the
Many people who plead inability to contribute, have
contributed freely TO THEIR OWN VANITY AND
SELFISHNESS, and others are contributing to grasping
greed when they pay two dollars for imaginary "reputa
tion" or "social prestige" for every dollar they pay for
actual dental service.
Every dollar spent needlessly takes food out of the
mouths oi our soldiers and starving Europe.
If you people who have had estimates made by high
priced dentists will bring that estimate to my office, I will
GUARANTEE to save you enough to make liberal contri
butions to the Red Cross, or to buy Bonds and also guar
antee that the dental service will be as good or better
than you would secure elsewhere, at the higher cost.
The ECONOMY of my service is in the QUALITY of
my work not alone in the price.
