THE VOTE SATURDAY
Lynden's schools are closed now
for the summer. County Superin
tendent Robin declares that unless
the district carries its seven mill ex
tra levy Saturday and cleans up a
portion of Its back debts, the doors;
may not open this fall.
This sounds like a threat, but be
hind it is a real punch. Lynden's
school district is some $11,000 on
the wrong side of the ledger, due to
high costs during the last few years.
The county treasurer and county
auditor may refuse at any time to'
issue and pay warrants of the dis- 1

So that Saturday. Lynden will vote
on whether to keep its schools open
or not. A few think it would be a
good thing to close down; those who
ibelieve in education will want to
keep them running at any cost.
And even with the extra seven mills,
that cost will be three mills under

SCARING THE REGENTS
A plan to build a big hotel on the
University of Washington's land in
the heart of Seattle's business dis
trict has been turned down by the
I'niversity regents. They did not
consider the proposal as fair to the
University. Seattle newspapers are
frothing and yelping for a recall of
the regents. Here's hoping that the
regents will continue to look them
straight in the eye, and say "No!"
whenever they try to tamper with
the University's leases or lands.
We warned you! Don't blame v?

Such is the theory of saving. It is not the small amount of money
which starts your Savings Account to-day that counts, but what
that amount will grow to in time to come. A dollar put away to
day will be worth considerably more in a year from now because
of the interest it has earned for you.
Hence, there is a hint for everyone who has not acquired the Sa
ving habit. Take what few dollars you can spare today, bring
them to us and watch how they grow while in a Savings Account
here. Whenever you need them, you can get them with the Vr
interest they have earned while in our hands. Think it over and
