From where I sit . . , oe Marsh Sam Abernethy always said: "Curiosity may kill a cat - but I'm no cat." Which is Sam's way of saying that when he's curious about something he goes out and gets the facts. Seems our government feels the same way. After hearing rumors about our soldiers drinking too much-government people went after the facts. They got the evidence on what our boys drink ... and don't drink. The government found out our Army's the best behaved in history. Morc'n half of 'em drink beer—nothing stronger. And tho government found that selling 3.2 beer in Army camps is one reason why our Army is so. temperate. From where I sit, there isn't much cause to worry about our men in the Army. Looks like they can take care o' themselves -and take care o' the Nazis and the Japs, too.

A poor but smart Arab once saved the life of a rich Mohammedan whose Caravan was lost in the desert. "In reward for my gratitude," said the Mohammedan, "you must accept half my goods. But in fairness to my dependents, please choose blindly without opening the camel's packs". So the modest Arab walked down the long line of camels pointing out the packs of his choice. "By the God of our Faith," cried the Mohammedan when the Arab finished. "You have truly chosen only my most costly stocks . . . worth well over five times the paltry half you left me.'How did you choose so well?" And the now rich Arab answered, "This you know better than I, oh Purveyor of Goods ... for success in such a situation select only the LARGEST and STRONGEST camels, for they are the ones which will surely carry the MOST and the FINEST merchandise to the best destinations". Comparable to the largest and strongest "camels" in retailing today are those stores which have proven their reliability by their reputation for fair dealing and fair prices on merchandise of dependable quality. And it is these stores that the home front is now relying on to give them the most for their dollar. We like to think that this is the big reason for the ever-increasing hundreds of customers in your S&L store these days. IT'S THRIFTY TO PAY ON LAY-AWAY!
