That leads to lai^er buying by banks than is their fair proportion, and buying by banks is mi inflationary mnve.. Now that the war shows signs of being over before (he year's end, many individuals are thinking it is ail right to cash tlieir bunds in at any time. Hut it isn't. They should 'be held as long as possible; Jf u tV.mily wants to buy a home after the war, the wise thing is to have some money in the hank to start out with, as well as the bonds. Saving as much cash as possible for the down payment, besides buying bonds to lay away, is a great protoclmn. The house can then be bought without drawing heavily on the bond supply. Monthly payments take the place of rent. "When the bonds come dm 1 , Ihey can go, one by one on the homo, thus relieving the bur- clou very greatly at that. time. Meantime, illness or accident can be taken care of by them if necessary. They are thus more than the usual protection for the home- btiying process. Almost everything for ?ale today is high ii> price and poor in quality. "\Vait tu buy tilings, if at all possible. Bank the money instead, and keep on buying bonds. .Reconversion unemployment lias no terrors for the family with money in the bank.to carry on until the next job conies. It is a time for thrift. The Turks have finally decided that the Allies will win the war. They dare to break with Germany. That will help. "Will Bulgaria be next'.' After Bulgaria the other Balkan states may fall into line.
