Representatives of the banks each spend two days a week visiting various communities in the county supplied with enough War Savings Stamps to meet the requirements.

To this wc may add "He also batiks on the farmer who will not plant wheat because some other less essential crop is more profitable." There arc undoubtedly a few farmers who, fairly in the matter of price, have worked themselves up to such a state of pity, and feel themselves so abused that they are ready to quit The thing to do with such men is to send them to the front in France and let patriotic men run their farms; men who are willing to forego for the welfare of their country.
