Th« topic of th* evening. "Dof.s Money Make The Man?" was given In the form of a panel dl«cus»ion. It was ably handled by the chairman. Frank Itnyre. assisted by Mis* Helen Hamm. Miss Kathrlne Burke. O. A. Fackler and Sheldon Fordham. It w*« plainly evident that each dis- cusalon had been carefully thought through with the Idea of trying to leave some helpful and thought pro* voklng Ideas with the audience. This topic Is part of the general theme for the year. "Defense Begins At Hone." . Th« speakers brought out the points that money doe* not make the man and that It was wrong to think of money as having the power to main the man. Money Is the accumulation df energy and we should think of money aa an opportunity. fiome make bad use of their accumulation of money and tome make food use of It fiome people cannot be depended upon to sustain themselves with the bare necessities .of Ufa such aa food, clothing and shelter. Th* family budget is the solution for all thoat who wish to wisely spend their money. There arc M budget* available which can be used aa a basia for f amillea who wish to act up a budget of their own. No .bualneaa man would think of running his business along the unbual- nata like way that many families do. A budget it a plan of spending whereby you cam wvs) tap mending.
