Aid of St. John's Lutheran With our new Overhead Cam Six you'd better believe it. Our OHC 6 delivers 165 hp on regular gas. And 215 horses from the premium gas 4-barrel version. Most American sixes (and some underprivileged V-Ss) don't even come close. Expensive European sports machines do, but they're overhead cams, too. In fact, they inspired us. Our OHC 6 is standard on all Tempests and LeMans. So are a host of new safety features like passenger-guard door locks, General Motors' new energy absorbing steering column and a four-way hazard warning flasher. We've said enough.

If you had put $25,000 in a savings account on January 3 of this year, by September 2 that $25,000 would have bought stocks that were priced at $29,675 on January 3. Thfs 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 of the number of shares of stocks they can buy. How many points has your savings account gone up this year?
