"There seems to be a law in life that resistance is needed for growth," writes George C. Anderson, Chaplain of St. Luke's Hospital in New York. He quotes Amelia Earhart as saying that "courage is the price life exacts lor granting peace." Unless you have the courage to crack down on yourself when you are tempted to "spend all" or to go into debt for luxuries, you'll never develop the character needed to make you thrifty. And you'll never enjoy the peace and other joys that thrift brings. Let Germanic help you learn thrift. Put regular sums there regularly.
