Are You Reducing
The High Cost of Living?
HE cost of living is just as much a personal p roblem as it is a National one. What are you, your
self, doing to reduce it?
When you pay money out and get nothing back you are wasting it that's what paying rent
When you take this same rent money and begin buying a home you are investing your money
instead of wasting it. Such payments on a home will soon make you the owner of that home, whereas
if you continue to pay rent, 'ou will never own anything but a bunch of rent receipts, so far as this rent
money is concerned.
Make One of These Homes Your Savings Account
That's what it really amounts to. And the money you are now saving in this way can be utilized
to give yourself and family some ot the present comforts and luxuries of life, and'you are still as well
off, for the money you are paying on your home represents just as many dollars and cents saved as
though it were deposited in a savings bank.

THE Cost of Living isn't worry
ing High View residents. Any
merchant who enjoys High View pa
tronage will tell you that this is so.
But why should High View resi
dents worry about the cost of living?
They are buying homes with the
same money that formerly went for
rent in this way a former expense
had been turned into an investment.
They are. therefore, in a better
position to enjoy life's comforts and
luxuries and pay for them. They are
building even more substantially for
the future. In a short time to cdme
they will have their homes entirely
paid for, and all their income can
then be devoted elsewhere, with no
thought of rent to be paid month after
High View homes are of the most
substantial construction. The fronts
are of beautiful pressed brick. They
contain six full rooms and bath. Mod
ern conveniences throughout.
The price is 53,300 cash or the
SHANNON & LUCHS way of $200
cash and S2G.92 per month.

are looking toward the parlor and through
the parlor can be seen the hall with its front
door of plate glass.
At the left of the dining room is the door
leading directly into the kitchen. Then there
is another door in this kitchen that leads di
rectly into the hall, so that the woman of the
house can reach her front door without
trapsing through the dining room and parlor.
Note the massive proportions of the din

of this picture. All the other lighting fixtures
are of equally as fine a caliber.
Another thing that we would call atten
