"THE GREAT RACE" AT THE ALGONA THEATRE SUNDAY The century's most astonishing and original automobiles play starring roles in "The Great Race," new Warner Bros, comedy in Panavision and Technicolor which opens Sunday at the Algona Theatre. The cars, shown at left with suffragette-reporter Natalie Wood ready to start them off, cost about $25,000 apiece to build. They were constructed by a crew of Warner technicians and conceived by Danny Lee, special effects expert, and Ferdie Garrere, art director, both of whom are seen in the photo at right. The black car was developed to parallel the black character Jack Lemmon portrays In "The Great Race." It has a cannon to mow down enemies, a nose-cone to melt snow and ice, a smokescreen to cause confusion, and it rises 12 feet in the air to enable escape. The white car, made to suit the white spirit of Tony Curtis in the film, is simply a gorgeous, luxurious phaeton. Curtis, Lemmon and Miss Wood star in "The Great Race."

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. 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 of the number of shares of stocks they can buy.
