A Comfortable Feeling
A good many things may happen that will
give you a feeling of comfort and security, but
nothing will do this more surely than the knowl
edge that you have money in the Hank.
This is particularly true if your money is in
our bank, where you know it's safe. You know
it is there subject to your needs. That you can
get it when you want it. That it is safe until
you need it. If you have no bank account, we
invite you to start one at our bank now, no mat
ter how small. You will add to it from time to
time and it will soon be a source of comfort and
security to you.
