The Mt. Vernon "Insured Savings Plan"
Sre You Educating (four Children? Your boy or girl may not be ready for a higher education just now, but they will be some day. Will you have the money when that day comes, or will you have to send them out to work? The Mt. Vernon Savings Bank's Insured Savings Plan will answer this question for you. Here's how it works: If you are accepted under the plan a monthly deposit of (at the average age) $8.20 for 120 months will not only accumulate $1,000 in cash for YOU at the end of that time, but your life will be insured for $1,000 all the time you are saving this amount. The same deposit? $8.20?covers both your savings accumulation and the insurance protection. Suppose you had saved your first $8.20, and the next day after yott had been accepted under the rules of the bank and the insurance company you lost your life. Your dependents would im-. mediately receive the full $1,000, just as if you had lived to save it. There are many other advantages to this plan co-operatively conducted by this bank and the Continental Assurance Company of Chicago. Come in and let us explain the.plan fully. 4 "The Same Deposit Covers Both" MT. VERNON Savings Bank N.E.Cor9tibf. and Mass.Ave 'O^osijfe tHPublic, Library HIGHEST RATING OFFICIAL. RECORD health DEPT. When a Mother Come s to Us? SELECTED AS Av MODEL TO THE BRITISH PUBLIC ?we feel honored, because after all only a woman can truly appreciate cleanliness. Almost every day we have doctors and scientific men from many part* of the country visit our dairy. They tell us that the Chestnut, Farms Dairy is one of the finest, and'best equipped dairies in the United States. This is very gratifying, and assuredly appreciated, but we would much rather have a mother with several children visit* us. Her interest is not scientific, but PERSONAL, and it's people such as she that we are trying to please most.
