It seems only rigtit, little son of mine
A-playing down there in your crib,
That I give you a start when you’re old enough

There’ll be times when you’ll find it hard,
So the I can do to help you through
Is to give you a start, little pard.
It’s the man with the coin in the world today
Who can stand when the others fall.
WTien the chance to invest comes along—why, say:
It’s the man who has saved has the call.
So listen, you rascal afl chuckles and smiles,
With your eooings and kicks in the air,
You have captured our hearts by the cunningest wiles
And your daddy must see you start fair.
So I’ve opened a Savings Account for you
For I’m planning your future to guard,
So when you’re a man you’ll be glad that your dad
Thought to give you a stall, little pard.
Many fathers in Detroit are giving the boy a start, with a
Savings Account in “HOME OF THRIFT.” Teaching him to
save as he grows up; training him in habits of Thrift.
These accounts receive 5% 'dividends compounded semi
