in time to prevent what might have
been a serious loss. The fire practically
destroyed a building where the most
valuable phonograph records were

I accepted his invitation to dine with
him in the Cafe Laloy in New York
because that is near his place of em

and read it to the board. He and the

Why Am I Offered This
"Ground Floor" Opportunity
Instead of the Wealthy
This question has been asked our representatives. There
are many reasons why it is better to have many small
investors instead of a few very large. We might say
here, however, that a few wealthy men are shareholders
with us. Also that there has never been any promotion
stock issued. Every share subscribed has been oris being
paid for. The capitalist has opportunity thrust upon
him. He is offered splendid propositions without number.''
Unfortunately many times he is presented with stock in
enterprises simply to secure his name upon the books. Just
the fact that he has money brings him money. That it tarkes
money to make money is the fundamental back of The
Oregon Home Builders. But it is far more satisfactory
to have a large number of shareholders than a few who
could control and manipulate stock. The greatest organi
"zations and the greatest successes in the world have been
built upon this basis. Some institutions have tens of
thousands of shareholders. 10,000 shares is all one person
"can own in this enterprise. That is only $3600 (at present'
price). It protects the small investor. This elimination
of Jhe control feature is not pleasing to the capitalist.
It makes him share both earnings and power with small
.investor. It isn't that The Oregon Home Builders does
not offer a safe investment and good return that keeps
the capitalist from crowding in. It is that he can use his ,
own money (and yours if you will loan it at small interest)
.and earn original profits without letting you in. It takes
volume, and by investing with us your money has as
large earning power as the largest capitalist. Investigate
our Home Building, Architectural, Plan, and other profit .
THE OREGON HOME BUILDERS,
Northwestern Bank Bldg. Oliver K. Jeffery, Pres.
NOTE Owing to an error yesterday, shares were quoted
10,000 for $2600, instead of $3600. Shares are 36c each. .
