WIEDMAN GIVES .•v *s The Savings Habit The savings habit is what counts these days, and there was never a better time to start than right now. The sooner you start, the. sooner the amounts will pile up to a substantial sum. Laying aside a little each week is easy and you'll never miss it. And you don't have to call upon your imagination very hard to realize what'a benefit it will be to you, should you be suddenly called upon to use it. \ ■> Saline Savings Bank The One Story Bank on the Corner FINE VOCATIONAL TALK At Meeting of the Rotary Club last .$*■■' 7 Thursday Noon.
