Paster and faster the ships go down the ways in the wartime shipbuilding program.
From Sunny California to the coast of Maine, workers have learned that the pause
that refreshes helps everybody do more work and better work. Have a " Coke” says a
hard-working shipbuilder to his mates. It's a little minute long enough for a big
rest. Whether in a shipyard or in your own living room, Coca-Cola stands for
the pause that refreshes, —has become a symbol of friendly relaxation.

Some mortgage plans take care of the
interest on the home debt and that is
about all. The years pass, but actual
home ownership still remains far away.
Our amortized mortgage plan is dif
ferent. "Amortize" means liierally to
‘ kill,” to reduce the principal of the in
debtedness until the mortgage is finally
paid off.
Let us show you how your present
mortgage can be refinanced and paid
off quicker through this bank with less
worry and uncertainty, and at lower cost.
