A Programme for a Celebration observed by Thirty-one Countries
Many listeners may wonder what World Thrift Day is, and may be surprised to know that the idea originated as long ago as 1924 at the first International Savings Congress at Milan. Associated with the movement are 5,500 savings banks in thirty-one countries, and its principal object is to stimulate thrift, especially among young people.
The broadcast will be introduced by Sir Josiah Stamp , and then various people will come to the microphone to say how they have saved, or are saving, or are encouraging saving. Finally, Signor Ravizza , who first originated World Thrift Day (today is World Thrift Day, by the way), will broadcast a message to listeners.
