Believe it or not, it's FUN to be thrifty! It's fun to buy a new dress or a new car. It's even GREATER fun to wear that dress, to drive that car and realize that you can do it while you're putting aside twenty-five cents, fifty cents, a dollar a clay-at interest--for those oilier future luxuries you will want later. We invite you to open a savings account with us now and learn for yourself the FUN of saving. Two Per Cent Interest Paid On Savings Interest is credited to your savings account twice a year, on January 1st and July 1st.
