One of the net products of the
war was the uomonal ration that
hanks aro the strongest factor
in community service. In most
cases the hanks became the
headquarters in the Liberty loan

ovory city when chum upon
thuy put in additional desks and
hired increased force to do the
work necessary' The bank is
the Keystone in the arch of com
munity service and isthestioug
est asset for community spirit.
Hanks are extending the com
munity service idea to the coun
try and are lending and special
izing to produce tarm prosper
ity. Many differences between
capital and labor nro smoothed
away by a better understanding
of all factors of the problem. So
tho old idea of a bank being in
any way hostile to the in
torests of tho producora is bo-
ing changed into mutual help
fulness. Thoro is no reason why
there should not bo tho fullost

A PLAIN TALK
Let's get doin to brass tacks.good people.and discuss a few things with regard
to the Greater Portland Association.
Seems as though you have heard that name before, doesn't it? Well, you ore
going to continue hearing it, until it sinks down into your subconscious mind just
like "Ivory Soap; it floats;" dr "I3ou Ami; hasn't scratched yet." ' -
We aren't doing tdl this advertising exactly for fun, you know, tt would be
too much of a luxury. We arc doing it because we have one deflpite end in
view there may be some minor ones, but the principal one is that you will come
as n matter of course to ' 'patronize the specialty man." ,
Patronize Stores Displaying This Sign
The Cieatcr Portland Association is not working for any particular specialty'
stores, nor for uuy particular section of the city. It is working to incicntc the
.business of every specialty store that has a legitimate right to exist; it is working
tp increase the prosperity of the city at large, and that must embrace all sections
This can be done only ns cvry person in Portland who buys nnyf merchandise
will do his or her fair share. It is the one method of accomplishing a fair dis
tribution of trade here.
What about it? Are you, as an iudtvidtial, doing your share towards helping
the members of the Greater Portland Association? If not, have you any lually
good reason? Is it merely fotcc of habiti or indifference?
Wc ask you to shop where you sec the sign of this Association.

When you bought your new furniture did you over
look buying a nice new bed-couch? Well, I did and when
company came all four of us tried to pile into one bed.
We put James and Ruth in the middle to keep them in
and what do you think? I fell out. It was so funny, but
I might have broken my arm.
