COLLEGE STUDENTS AND THRIFT ,
By Francis _. Bacon, '02, Executive C
College students are in the habit
making age. Habits which they form
between the ages of 18 and 25 are
more than likely to endure. If the.
habits are those of a spendthrift, the
individual is more than likely to re-
main a spendthrift in, mature years.
On the other hand, if students prac-
tice habits of thrift, the spirit of th.rift
'is more likely to predominate.
Students have unique opportunities
brought to them through the medium'
of war. For some of them, with an
allowance, which is barely sufficient
for actual necessities, the ' Liberty
Loans may have been out-of the ques-
tion. Yet many of them bought, and
in doing so became partners of the
government in the conduct of the war.
Bigger than this, they achieved for
themselves something of the idea of

$5 from it January 1. 1923; or they
may purchase Thrift stamps at 25
cents each. Thrift stamps do not bear
interest. They should be converted
into War Savings stamps as soon as
16 of them have been bought. This
can be done by paying the difference
between the $4 and the prevailing
price of War Savings stamps for the
We must abandon many of the pre-
war luxuries if the country is to con-;

people is an absolute necessity. The
War Savings idea brings this ques-

est people. The money, with interest,
is paid back within five years, thus

Men, women, and children are liv-

commission to Europe. 'Many children'
are in the actual fighting zone, near
enough to be in serious danger. The
commission is striving to find some
better means of housing them, to pro-
vide employment, and to remove the
children 'to safer quarters where they
may have school facilities.

The Literacy Critic Says
HOW TO LIVE AT THE FRONT, by
Hector MacQuarrie, Lieutenant,
Royal Field Artillery.-J. B. Lip-
Lieutenant MacQuarrie's choice of
titles for his book was rather un-
fortunate, for "How to Live at the
Front," has a tendencyt'to lead oneto
expect either a patronizing "look and
see how I do it" disclosure, or a ser-
ies of health lectures. His book is
neither. It is a most refreshing mix-
ture of clean humor and straight facts
from an English officer who has had
every opportunity to know and to un-
derstand, and whose desire is .to help
the American soldiers, that will nec-
essarily encounter many of the dif-
ficulties that the English and French
have met. The "tips," as he calls
them, are all straight from the should-
er, and the entire volume is most in-
formal in character.
Probably the most likable charact-
eristic of the -book is Lieutenauit Mac-
Quarrie's naive way of expressing
himself, - saying with the drollest
gravity things that are excruciatingly
funny. Often he becomes very serious,
and begins a grave disucssion of cer-
tain dangers of warfare, but he can-
not resist breaking out frequently
wit), "I rememter standing by a sally
port one night," and then follows an-
other funny story.
Athough Lieutenant MacQuarrie
wrote this book ' primarily fort
our soldiers, there is no reason
why everyone should not enjoy it, for
it is of very general interest, and
makes dplightful reading.,
