Martial law is expected to reach

Every owner of every store or factory, almost without
exception, was an employe in it once. If you ever intend
to be at the head of a large concern you must have the
money to back it.
Moreover, if you have the reputation of being "A man with
money in the bank" eoing over the top will be easier for you.
Worthwhile concerns will give you responsible positsons. They
have proof that you are persistent and reliable. No recommend
ation is half so good.
To bank your money makes your future security threefold. It
pays you an annual interest; you have prepared for the oppor
tunity, and the larger salaries adds to your pile the faster.
Common sense should tell you that money will come in hand
some day. The only question is:
