USE SANITY IN
PURCHASE OF CAR
"One should use sanity in motor
car buying as in other buying," said S.
K. Lannis, president of the Motor Safes
company. Inc., Arizona distributors for
popular Mitchell Six, durinff an in
terview. "The motor buying public has surely
lost sight of automobile values during
the past two years, due no doubt to the
fact that prices are so seldom adver
tised, owing to the necessity of fre
quent price changes incident t0 the
constant advance in price of labor and
materials that the public has become
bewildered so far as prices are con
cerned and no one could name the sell
ing price of any car.
"Investigation has proven that very
few people know the selling price of the
Mitchell. Many guessed it at (2500
some higher, which goes to show that
more thought should be given to money
values, especially at this time when
everyone is urged to practice the most
rigid economy". Quality should not be
forgotten, however, in selecting a mo
tor car," concluded Mr. Lannis.

"Nobody can tell until the conven

McAdoo that he roust not be consid

Eleven new depositors a day.
That's our average gain during the past
few weeks.
The Central Bank is enjoying an in
crease in business that is little short of phe
nominal. Each succeeding day sees an increase
in the number of depositors and a marked
gain in deposits.
This is conclusive proof that more and
more people are appreciating the banking
service of this institution "where they feel at
home" and that the Central Bank is an insti
tution worthy of consideration in your finan
cial affairs.
Will you be one of "the eleven" Mon
day? Central Bank
"Where you feel at home"
The action of the banks in. curtailing
credits on speculative issues should be
looked on as a wholehearted effort to check
Inflation, and the spending "jag" the coun
try has been experiencing. It will have the
effect of making available later an enormous
sum of money for home-building and other
legitimate enterprises. This will be just
the situation which a country short two
million homes ha;i been awaiting.
In our opinion the trade, would, therefore,
be unwise to regard the present attitude of
the banks with reference to making loans
on new enterprises, as anything but a desire
o help business, which help, insofar as the
retail lumber dealer is concerned, will come
just when it can be put to greatest use
t the end of the crop-moving season, at the
time when the normal fall building activity
sets in..
Many things, in fact, indicate that we are
approaching what will perhaps be the great
sst building boom In the histroy of the
country. The building material man who
looks ahead will prepare NOW to take ad
vantage of this opportunity.

RE
THE
RUSH
COME
The accompanying letter indicates the conditions
which obtain all over the country, and we are passing
the information along to our patrons so that they may
anticipate the building boom that is sure to come with
the readjustment process now going on. The housing
situation is critical, especially in all the large centers of
population. When the rush to build comes mills will
be taxed to capacity and materials are sure to be scarce.
Therefore wTe urge you to build now while, materials are
available and prices are stable.
