' \ ,f'il-« atfo^iMrhi tof ui to Hva on. like to Invest $t50 a month I don't care about dividends tor five years or more. What do you tuftettt A. 1 am sending you a few recent issues of the National AssooMlon of Investment Clubs' "Better Investing" magazine. You mi^it get ideas of a stock or stocks you hke from its model poitfofio. Since you are willing to wait five years for return on your investment, you should par- ttoulffrly be interested in stocks growing at a good rate. .By that, I mean 1 stock in a company which is increasing its sales and earnings by at least 10 per cent per year. Nearty all of those in the model portfolio have been doing that. You and your husband might also like to get together a group of friends and/or oo-workers and organize an investment club. In a club you can hold your investments down to $10 or |20 a month while you leairn how to pick good investments. In studying stocks for your club, you probably will come upon a particular stock in which you might want to invest on your own. Q. My husband and I have (15,000 in a savings account from which wo receive five per cent. We also have a large holding of American Telephone A Telegraph on which we receive $1,320 in dividends every year, and around $1.000 in various other stocks. Our homo is paid for, my husband receives social security, and I shall become eligible in five years. Should we sell some of the AT&T stock and put the money in the bank at fivo per cent, or should wo invest in some higher yielding stock? A. 1 don't think you should put any more into satvinlgs accounts. By selling AT&T and putting the money in savings, you would increase your immediate income; but you would eliminate the possibility for appreciation of your «i»pital to off-set inflation you have*, with ff'A rttwftt on which you can tone your MMkmpttom of future perfonnince, where** » fee* fund don not. As for recognizing * fund With a "front-end toed", ito prospectus will indicate the Mtes charge and how It i* collected. With a "frontend load" « disproportionate shire of the sales oommisston ks deducted from your first few purchases rather than spread out over the full term of the agreement. If the sales charge takes a substantial percentage (maybe half) of your first year's payments, then you have a front-end loader. tttltOff ' «*•-- mtilxiiiHL tnmmt, IIW , ; BIVUIII m IWhet UMtir „ , OdeboW, of Adated at the nup- ttal higi tnaii.

SANTA CLAUS ... and MONEY! I think you might seffl half of your AT&T and put this into other stocks. As a possible investment, you might consider convertible debentures or a convertible preferred stock. From a well selected security of these types, you probably could obtain more current income than from your AT&T shares, and you wouldn't be losing the chance for appreciation. Q. Do you think a mutual fund that has grown exceptionally largo is a poorer investment prospect than a •newer, smaller fund? Also, how do I know if a fund is a "front-loador"? A. In theory, a smaller fund should be able to move more quIicMy and achieve greater .profits than a large fund, especially if its policy involves a great deal of trading. 'From a practical standpoint, however, you - as a prospective buyer - face the fact that a larger, older fund has a fsa?
