IF EVERYONE BOUGHT HERE What would be the dividend: able to White Ptyi nds pjuf* i- cilizfn if ev i Dccemiier i'll 193\ could truth fully say he or she had not violated — a community resolution for 1939 to “ buy at home.\ The increased business which would obtain for home tn» ii incr- chants .from such a cqpimuuity Reso ­ lution might seem inconsiderable to those who buy seldom if ever through the mails. but-tm that person ac ­ quainted with postal money order statistics and the number of mail order catalogues annually pnurilB? in to the community, the resulting loss ^to the community is staggering. At this time, when community cn-' operation and loyalty are doing so much for community growth and prosperity, it seems that an intensive and concerted campaign for one solid year for 100 percent inculcation of the \buying .at home\ habit would discover for every community the hidden “ fountain of prosperity.\ Presupposing that the mail order catalogue cover has- been-c!nm|vrd down tightly for one year by the whole community the probable bene ­ fits which would accrue to the com ­ munity are amazing. Firstly, thou ­ sands of dollars annuajlv shipped out of town wguld pour into home town stores. The increased business would encourage the merchants to tnake store improvement!;, the pur ­ chase of larger stocks, the lowering of prices and to otherwise improving service. The benefit to the public of . better stores, larger stocks, lower prices and better service is-obvious. Business begets business. It is the busy town which attracts new indus ­ trial. ncu- business. uc\v citizen*.,and new buildings. Population increases and building improvements distribute the tax burden over a larger area, lightening it. for tly: individual. Is there anyone who doubt* that White Plains would he a bigger and better town to live in in 19:; | if every ­ body bough*, at home .in 193ft? In the new million-dollar West ­ chester Uounfy Cninmuuity.fenter in White Plains, to tie' opened to the public around April I of next year, is one distinctly novel .arrangement which will attract public inler»«i. It is the little theater, available fm amateur theatrical productions, with a sealing capacity of Soft, comfort ­ able dressing rooms and ample stor ­ age space. • The little theater is equipped with a permanent plaster rv-clorama- and the fiiiost modern stage iigljgmg facilities, and affords an ideal place (■> present 111* West- chestercontests next year in the little, theater group. The central location of llie new building is particularly an advantage to encourage county ­ wide patronage. The large jjtagr ituihc auditorium is. of ronrsc, more elaborate. There is a fully equipped lighting system, with spaces and.-aftpgc&lu.s behind the wings for I he. 'jtresent^tion of everything from large choruses and\ •pageants.to grailAjiper.i. With the new ^ninty rente? Build ­ ing thus meeting the hcedfpfof both large and small groups, every effort should be marie by those sponsoring such movements to center their ac ­ tivities in ,tlie new building, easily reached m-shorl time from the more populous sections of Westchester and still Hose enough to attract crowds from the northern tier. It is to be hopod that the little theater groups of the county will particularly avail themselves of this priv ilege for this is an amateur niovc- nicht which deserves the public en ­ couragement which publicltv and central location of the new ccutcr must perforce give.

THE HARDF.ST WEEK CASH VALUE OF HUSBANDS The An estimable Roman matron bv the naofie.of Cornelia has been noted in history for having pointed to her sons and remarked : “ These arc my jewels.\ What she thought, if •any­ thing. of Mr. Gracchus, father of the boys, history fails to record. Yet the Gracchus family moved in the best of Roman social circles and somebody - had to pay-l Hr — -Cornelia's attitude has been share.d by wives since the beginning »f the . auu-rmge etiM«m. No more startling illustration- of woman's lack of busi- ne*v acumen could In found than her failure to discover in her husband a cash asset. If you stop to consider it. even ' man who works at all uiav br regard ­ ed by his wife as so. much capital. If he is making $3<i a week his cash value is $78. mm plus tnferest if ho lives to his fiftieth wedding ann^er- sary.
