TUESDAY, MARCH 30, 1954 Folks Can Buy Easter Bonnets, Finery Oil Credit "1 eouM write a «mn«t about your Easter Bonnet. . . of lh« girl I'm taking to the Eatter Parade." Sonnets don't have much to do with charge account* and credit. Bonnets do, though -- and tx don Easter, says Mrs. Stable Bins, Manager of th« Credit Bureau of Lumberton. And if Irving Berlin had stuck to the facts he would have given credit to credit! "Today's Lumberton customer is so accustomed to charging the family's Easter outfit that she automatically sets it up for her May or June budget, not to be paid for in the month when it is first worn," says Mrs. Bijrgs. "This is · great boon to families that are just getting back on the'ir feet from Christmas, and who doesn't fall in gjat group?" Not only Easter clothes, uy Lumberton merchants, but many other things are being sold this season. S p r i n g housecleaning means new curtain*, rug replacements, and all sorts of household Roods. And then there are the families u-ho struggled through just one more winter-with.that old car. They're looking around at the new models. Whether it's car* or clothes, Airs. Biggs says, Lumberton merchants are happy to oblige, with credit conveniences for all customers who are dependable.- As one merchant points out. "A credit transaction can be even better than a cash transaction--for both customer and seller! The customer gets merchandise or services he might have had to wait for, ihd the seller makes a «ale he might otherwise have lost." "So don't feel hesitant about applying for credit at one of Lumberton's stores," says Mr«. Biggs. "They want to seil you. And don't feel .self-conscious if they ask for a litlle information about yourself. This is only the reasonable precau^ tion that every merchant niust take, in order to stay in business and accommodate credit custom- Freedom Shrine Project Planned WASHINGTON'-- A national project to erect a "Freedom Shrine" m Washington, D.
