No, I don't, Municipals are quite safe, of course, and th'e fact that they arc tax free makes them attractive under certain circumstances, even though they may yield only two or three per cent a year. However, it .sounds to me like your major objective is escaping taxes and I'don't think that is the best objective for an investor. Municipals are more for the person with an income several times yours. For a person in 'the higher tax brackets an investment in municipals prob- tbly win put mote spending 'money in his pocket thin would in investment in stocks paying a much higher return. A man in the |10,000«-ye»r income bracket, However, should be less concerned with the few dollars extra he'll pay in taxes than with putting hit money into securities that will help him keep up with or pas* inflation. Contact a broker and get .his advice on some good com* mon stocks you can buy. After paying taxes on common stock dividends, you'll still have more net income • and I presume that's what you're after. Better still, get together with some friends and start your own investment club. The few dollars you'll invest each month will teach you a great deal about successful Investing and will also provide you with fcome wotiderfiii idea* of where you can put 4h*t $1,000 profitably ore you hAve it saved. •0.

Since corporate bond* represent a fixed amount of debt, t don't think they would serve your purpose in protecting you against inflation. Raw land can be a very favorable investment. However, location is of prime importance on such investmento; if you are not skilled in site ae- i lection you should make sure you have some first-class advice before making such an investment.
