Howay War Savings. WHAT IS BEING DONE. HOW TO 11ELP TO WIN THE WAR. The montlily committee meeting was held on Satur- day. The secretary (Mr W. 15. dr Winton) reported pro- gress up to date as follows :lauuary 17th. 54 mem- bers, f254 subscriptions,* 328 certificate's purchased February 17th, 71 members, £ '370 subscriptions, 476 cer- tificates purchased. The number of members paying small subscriptions weekly had risen from 23 to :M. but mamy who might subscribe if they had the will had not started yet. It was hard to believe that there was a single man or woman in the district who could not, if they would, subscribe at least 6d per week. If they had not got it, they had only to give up a little beer or tobacco, or something else to which they were accus- tomed, but which was not necessary for their health, and they at once got the power of helping their country and themselves. There were, it was thought, two reasons why many people did not subscribe—(1) they didn't trust the Go- vernment, and fear they will never see their money again; (2) they have not got 15/6, and didn't believe in the advantage of subscribing 6d a week to the asso- ciation until they do get it. With regard to (1) noth- ing in this world could IK, safer or more certain than that the British Government would pay its debts with very good interest added. With regard to (2) atten- tion was called to Rule II.. which showed that if they subscribed weekly-, instead of keeping their money till they got 15/6 they received a certificate dated many weeks earlier than tiien otherwise would, and. coon- quently, received their money and interest back ju.-t so many weeks earlier also. Some people also seemed to think that war savings crtificates were coming to an end at the same time as the war loan. This was not 1"0, There was no present intention of stopping them, and they were likely to go on as long as the war lasts, be- cause they were such an excellent method whereby all could help their country, and at the same time learn to save. The secretory also reported that Mr J. Griffith. man- ager of Lloyds Bank, Llandrindod Wells, had audited and passed the accounts of tire quarter ending Decem- ber 31st, 1916, on January 27th. His criticism and ad- vice were exceedingly helpful. The method of slotting clertificates was then discuss- ed, and the following rules agreed to:-(I) No certifi- cates to be allotted to any member which is dated be- fore the date of commencement of that member'- sub- scription; (2) when a member completes his 15/6 a cer- tificate shall be allotted which is dated, as nearly as pos- sible, half way between the dates of commencement and completion of his subscription: (:i) when any thing more than the above. rules is required, the certi- ficates to be allotted by drawing lots.
