»Y THOMAS i. O-H ABA Ch»trm«h, Botrd of Truittt* National Allocation of lnv*«tm«nt Ctubt 0. My wife and I have a com- izations. While this does not bined income of $18,000 before taxes and we are attempting to determine the best method of investing—either a mutual fund, • Monthly Investment Plan or some other systematic program. We owe about $6,000 on a $30,000 home, have $8,000 in a mutual fund and $5,000 in a small business investment company which is not successtul. Also, we have about $12,000 in a local investment group, another organization of very moderate success. We would like to invest a minimum of $100 monthly during the next 10 years, possibly in a mutual fund. What do you suggest? A. The charges in the mutual fund you meiHion are probably as moderate as any you will find. The fund is new and relatively small, but it is managed by one of the nation's best informed financial service organ- New AVCO manager You arc not too smart if you think a nest egg is for the birds. Who — but Americans can afford chairs that vibrate and cars that don't? No blind man has ever joined a nudist camp. * Our vacation trip was the best one yet but alas, homecoming was no fun. Vandals had broken in, turned on the water and turned off electricity. Both floors were a skating rink — not to mention broken glass. And adding insult to injury, a mustache had been painted on grandma's portrait. Does your new Homeowners policy cover all such damage?

Q. My husband if being transferred, which means we must sell our home. We expect to receive about $9,000 in cash trom the sale. We also have 1<tO shares of A. T. & T., my husband's employer. Would it be better for us to put the $9,000 into more A. F. & I', stock and use the stock as collateral in buying another nouse or should we sen tne 140 shares, put that money with the $9,000 and make a oown payment on the new home? A. Interest rates are unsettled these days and changing rapidly; it is difficult to tell wnat tney will be six months from now when you make your change. Considering your youth, your >ast savings record and assum- ng there is no great shift from he present situation, I do not >elieve you would be making any great mistake in buying your new home with the lowest down payment possible, placing your excess funds in good securities. Since you already have a ;ood holding of A. T. &. T. stock and since your husband probab- y will have the opportunity to juy more at favorable prices in the future, I think you ought to consider diversifying your holdings by buying shares in other companies. Should the current price situation continue in the stock market .until you make your move and sell your home, good values in utilities and oils and many of our major corporations are likely to be available.
