Why rent when the month
ly rent money will buy the
property? For example, suppose the
house is purchasable for
$1,000, which you are renting
at $12 per month.
You buy the house putting
in $300 and borrowing $700
from the Warren Building and
Loan Association. Your
monthly payments to the lat
ter would then be $8.75 in
stead of $12, with the differ
ence that every payment to
Building and Loan Associa
tion is a payment on the
house, while the payments
made for rent are lost to you.
Call in and let us explain to
you the New and Up-to-date
plan adopted by The Warren
Building and Loan Associa
This plan makes it very
easy for you to become the
owner of your own home.
You know exactly at the
time you make a loan, how
much money, and how long
time it will require to pay the
same back to the Association.
There are many advantages
to the borrower in this new
plan that the Secretary will be
glad to explain to you.

The barberry is the chief agency by

FINE MEMORIAL SERVICES
FOR THE FOUR VIKING
The Mission church was filled to over
flowing last Sunday afternoon by the
people of this town and vicinity who
desired to honor the memory of the
four Viking soldiers who sacrificed their
lives on the altar of freedom. It was
an occasion that brought the stern
realities of the war more closely home
to us than ever before, as then it was
realized that of the soldier boys gone
forth from here to battle for their
country, four would never return.
The church was handsomely decor
ated with white carnations, pink roses,
and national colors., The marked fea
ture of the decorations was a large ser
vice flag made of red and white carna
tions which contained four gold stars
to represent the four dead soldiers.
The program commenced by the play
ing of a march to which all the return
ed soldiers entered the church. Next
was a song by the congregation.
