Two Minuite Talks
by D.J. M. P. for
The Ann Arbor Savings Bank

P EOPLE often find themelves confronted
with advertisements of banks and in-
surance companies that tell them to
save and accumulate. One might be led to
think that the main object in life was the pil-
ing up of a.vast fortune. In reality that is not
what is meant. Nobody, not even the most
unscrupulous, would encourage a person to
spend his life hoarding money.
The purpose of such ads is to impress upon
you the importance of saving while young.
Every dollar you save at the age of twenty-
five is worth two dollars and nine cents saved
when you are fifty or three dollars and seventy-
eight cents saved when you are seventy. And
furthermore, it is easier to learn to save money
at twenty-five than at seventy.
Perhaps you find that it takes all of your in-
come at present to meet expenses. It may

seem as though you have not the opportunity
to save as long as your income is what it is
at present. But is that really so? If you are
getting thirty dollars a week now, what would
you do if your income were suddenly cut to
twenty-five per week? We have an idea that
you would live on twenty-five dollars just as
you now live on thirty.
You might pretend that your income was twen-
ty-five dollars a week and see how it affects
your expenses. Suppose you saved the extra
five dollars and put it in a special account draw-
ing interest. If you formed this habit at the
age of twenty-five you would find yourself at
the age of fifty with, not $7,500.00, but $9,-
578.66 in your account. You would be draw-
ing $287.35 interest each year at the rate of
It is so very easy that everybody ought to be
independent by the time they have grey hairs.


Every girl simply must
have a ratine dress to wear
on the campus these warm
days. It is merely a matter
of preference whether she
will have a temple orange,
rose, bright blue, or more
delicately tinted frockf.
We are malting a special-
ty of charming summer
frockfs in all the popular ma-
terials priced at $15.
There are so many little
accessories Ma'm'selle wants
for her summer wardrobe.
