Ben Franklin once said: "If you
would know the value of money, go
out and try to borrow some."
Didn't Ben say a real mouthful
there? ver tried it? Strange, but
the value of money to you increases
when you haven't any. May we of
fer one little word of advice? SAVE
a little from your earnings. Deposit
in a good, reliable Bank like ours. It
will establish your credit. Possibly
then you may not even have to bor
row. Think it over.
