City employe who have considered
the proposed new measure are at a

any promotion from one grace to an

provides that the Commissioner in

salary reductions, while the part aimed

adhered to It strictly, while others
have Ignored It.

Did You Hear Madame
"HOME, SWEET HOME"
Can YOU sing it and mean it? Have YOU secured that home yet?
Wouldn't YOU like a real home near beautiful LAURELHURST
PARK, where you could enjoy God'a own fresh air, the fragrant smell
of fir trees and the perfume of flowers?
IT'S NOW WITHIN YOUR REACH
It would be so easy right now for you to procure one of our de
lightful cozy bungalow creations with their full richness of soft colors
and sweet simplicity. YOUR RENT MONEY WILL PRACTICALLY
PAY FOR YOUR HOME.
THRIFT IN LAURELHURST
is proverbial. It does not mean a pinchy miserliness or the hardship
of great self-deniaL It means a lessening of extravagance and useless
expenditure and a cultivation of the saving habit.
There is no object for which a whole family can save with so much
zest as for a home. Money paid on a home is an ever-present pro
tection. There's no rent day for the man who owns his own home and
no landlord to say "go."
Won't you let us help you into a home of your own? Come in at
270H Stark St, Main 1503, A 1515, and talk it over with us and let
us show you LAURELHURST in our autos, without any obligation.
