Did you ever stop to think that if you gave your
wife, your mother, your son, daughter, sister, fiancee,
godson or any one who is close to you, a Saving Book
with $100 entered in it. you would be giving them not
merely the $100 of NOW, but the $4.00 interest that
the $100 would earn In each of the succeeding years?

In other words, YOU give them a Holiday Present
THIS year, and that same Holiday Present will give
: them an additional Holiday Present NEXT year and
the year after, and so on through ALL the years that
Jfc. They may spend this interest each year for other
