NEW YORK (AP)-In 1941 a Detroit man began depositing $10 to $20 a month in an investment club. By February of this year he had invested $7,800, withdrawn more than $30,000, and still had an account worth more than $59,000. The club, the Mutual Investment Club, was one of the four founding units of the National Association of Investment Clubs, now more than 7,000 strong, averaging about 12 members each, all regular investors for the long term. Even though most club members are amateurs, they often beat the pros over long and short periods. One club, made up of post office workers, reported a gain of 212 per cent from October 1974 to December 1975. That report encouraged the association', based in Royal Oak, Mich., to take a random sample of gains by about 40 clubs through February. It found the average gain since December 1974, the worst of the bear market, to be 69.9 per cent. The Dow Jones industrial average during that'time gained 59.9 per cent, 10 per cent less than the average club. Sixty-four per cent of the clubs in the sample did better than the average. For the clubs that stuck it out through the recession, despite declines in value month after month, these results are satisfying and reassuring, but not totally unanticipated.

Dorothy held the business meeting and gave a bicentennial message. Cards were played and lunch was served by Malinda Gage an'd Clara Oakley. Mr. and Mrs. John Barten and Pauline were dinner guests in the Roger Barten home on Sunday. The event was in honor of Dennis who was a member of the confirmation class at Ebenezer of rural"Audubon. • Mr. and Mrs. Bill Smithson, Bellevue, were Friday overnight guests in the John Barten home. Although their nerves did quiver, club members were sustained by their faith that over a long period of time their investment philosophy averages out to a gain. Many clubs did drop out, however. At one time in 1973 the association had 14,100 member units, but that number went down with the averages. 'Some clubs folded, and others simply ceased to remain members of the association. Now the trend is about to be reversed.

IOWA 51 4O1 712-792-4324 history suggests inquiries are followed by applications. Individual clubs also report they are adding to their memberships. Thomas O'Hara, chairman, recalls that in the fall of 1973, when the fear and despair were thick, the sturdiest of clubs continued to believe stocks were a bargain. They were willing to wait. Now, said O'Hara, who belongs to the Mutual Investment Club, "We feel that the really big movement in the market is in the two to five years ahead." Timet Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, April 22, 1976 With theories, concepts and systems as common in the investment world as they are at the race track, member clubs follow deceptively simple principles to help them achieve their results. —They invest regularly, usually at monthly intervals, over a long period of time. They do not try to guess whether the market is in an upward or downward trend. Through the worst of times. they continue to invest. —They keep fully invested in order to put to work for them the principle of compounding. They don't maintain big cash positions. And they reinvest dividends. —They endeavor to invest in companies whose sales and earnings per share are moving ahead faster than the general economy. While this seems to be a conservative philospophy, it really isn't. Ask any club that stuck to it during the dark days of the market. "It gives you a pretty aggressive account," said O'Hara. He explained: "Investing a set sum of money each month has a wonderful mathematical effect. As stock prices decline, that set amount buys a larger and larger number of shares of stock. "Once stock prices turn around, a price increase applied to the larger number of shares helps increase values rapidly. Long before stock prices reach their former highs, the investors find the value of their accounts exceed their investments.
