there are plans for tho children with deposits

there are plans for oldqr 'folks -with deposits
.up to $10.00 each week.

vited to use. the Thrift Club just as you wish
, .' " ' The progressive plans aro attractive because they-are novel ways
of accumulating money. The deposits required are small at flrst.'but'tho
totals that can be secured are surprisingly large. ' i.
For. example, if you deposit 5 .cents tho first week, 10 cents tho?" "
second week, then 15 cents and so on increasing tho deposit 5 cents. "f. .
each week for fifty weeks, you will have $63.75 plUB tho interest. ThiB is .
the Five Cent Progressive plan. There are three others. Ono 'starts . ' "
with 1 cent, another with 2 cents and the third with 10 cents, increasing .
by. those amounts each week and paying totalspf $12.75, $25.50. and
$127.50 respectively, plus interest, for tho period of fifty weeks. "J, , ,
t The reducing plans appeal to, those whq like to do tho hard work .
first, in oveiy thing they undertake. T)io largest deposits aro mado first, . ,
with each subsequent weekly deposit growing smaller until tho fiftieth . ;
week, when only 1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents or 10 cents is deposited accord
ing to which one of the reducing plans is selected. The totals that may
be secured are the same as for the Progressive plans but tho interest
earned is much larger because tho largest deposits remain In the bank a
loncer time. .

There are eight regular or fixed deposit plans ranging from ' 1
10 cents to $10.00 each week. Usually a much larger amount can' bo ob-s 1 ' .

tained by making these regular deposits of fixed amounts than woujd be ' '
pos3ible by either of the other plans and is much better for those whose
income is received regularly.
Deposits caii be made weekly, monthly, or for as many weeks in
advance, as desired. Everyone will thus fiiid tho Thrift Club System a big
aid to success in handling tho Income to the best advantage. Many will
find it the best and easiest way to secure money for investment, for Insur
ance, for school expenses, for taxes, or for other special things.
