Example text

The riot of luxury trades in the United States will not end so long as the American woman remains a steady buyer of luxuries. The mobilization of women as workers is no more essential to the triumph of our cause, than the mobilization of women for thrift. The beginning and end of saving in America rests almost entirely in the hands of women. They are the buyers in the working class and in the professional class. Among the wealthy they set the standard of living. Practically every appeal for thrift has been addressed to the rich.

Undoubtedly economy among the rich is of value. I presume few would gainsay that it would have been well for America if the use of private automobiles had long since ceased, and the labor and plants used in their making turned to manufacturing much-needed trucks and ambulances.

Thrift waits for democratization.

And women are the motive power from start to finish. The Chapters , with their five million members joined in three thousand units over the United States, are so many monuments to the ability of women for detail.
