HOW MANY POINTS HAS YOUR SAVINGS ACCOUNT GONE UP THIS YEAR ? If you had put $25,000 in a savings account on January 3 of this year, by September 2 that $2 5,000 would have bought stocks that were priced at $29,675 on January 3. This means that your savings account increased 18.7% in stock purchasing power in addition to paying generous earnings over this period, (These figures are based upon the Dow Jones Industrial Average stocks at the market close on these dates.) We're not saying that it is unwise to invest in the stock market. Far from it. The stock market is a vital part of our national economy, and stockbrokers perform a useful and necessary function. What we are saying is that many investors keep a substantial '••• part of their estates in savings accounts in Insured Savings and Loan Associations such as ours. They have safety, liquidity and good earnings. And, if the stock market goes down, the value of their savings accounts goes up in terms o£ the number of shares of stocks they can buy. How many points has your savings account gone up this year? sj'V*. .years later, just before Rev.
