Unless you are dealing in a pretty poof grade of securities, there is rarely any need for a club to make quick decisions on whether to buy or sell.

NAlC strongly recommends that when a purchase to made of a security, it be bought because your study indicate* five years from now the company iii likely to be worth twice or -more thin you are paying for it. This doesn't mean either that you are going to sell the company at the end of five yean. Its future may very well then look even better than it does today. Occasionally you may buy a security whose price will move up faster than the prof' its and prospects of the company warrant. In such a case you might want to make a fairly quick decision to sell. But as a general principle, short-term buying and selling is likely a pretty risky practice for any club. 0.1 would (Ika to buy stock for my six small grandchildren, to help them about tho time they aro ready for college. I can invest $500 for each one. Would you recommend mutual funds or some blue chip stocks? And would you please name mo a couple? A. I cannot recommend specific securities, but if your grandchildren won't be entering college for about 10 years, I believe one of the growth- type mutual funds should be satisfactory. Also shares in one of the major industrial, oil or utility companies would produce good results in that span of time. If you have never invested, why don't you talk your problem over with one of the officers of your bank, ask him for suggestions or for the name of a reliable broker who can help you pick stocks or a mutual fund that would best serve your purpose. 0. What can a person of limited income do to build up a financial reserve in 10' years? Is it true that tho brokerage fee on anything loss than $1,000 off tots tho gain? A. There are several ways an individual can begin an investment program with very little money - and by .small amount I mean $10 or . , $15 a month; Under the Monthly Investment Plan (MIP), you can buy any stock listed on the New York Stock Exchange by paying as little, as $40 every three months. ADDRESS. CITY^ _ST»TE_ $ 9 Mr. and Mrs. Charles Quinn of Bancroft, announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter, Bridget and Thomas Lynch, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Lynch of Fenton. An August 26 wedding Is planned at St. John's Catholic church in Bancroft, purchases, the highest you will be charged (for a purchase, say, of less than $100) will be $6. That would be on the first $100 of your investment. On larger amounts the fee keeps dropping percentage-wise from 2% to 1/10%. Thus, if you bought four shares of a stock at $20 a snare, you would be showing a "paper" profit whenever your shares rose $2. Or, to look at it another way, you can expect to recoup your $6.80 in brokerage fees from dividends on your stock in a year and a half, if your dividend gives you a 4% return on your investment, as is true in the case of a larger number of stocks these days. aMHMl»MmmH«HHMHni«iiHnimimiiinHiH IIIIIIMWI 120 cup cakes to rest home for birthday __ T _ ...., Ottoeen — Mrs. Essie Coop- That's $13.33 a month.

Which costs more—oil heat or gas? Gas does, if you now have oil heat equipment. Consider these things. You can pay hundreds of dollars to have a new gas heating system installed. Your pilot light can cost about $10 a year. You can be penalized for late payment of monthly gas bills. You have none of these with oil. Besides, you get 4% less usable heat with gas per BTU purchased as compared with oil. Before you spend needlessly, compare.
