A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.
But he grew old.
This knight so bold.
And o’er his heart a shadow Fell as he found No spot of ground That looked like Eldorado.
And, as his strength Failed him in length He met a pilgrim shadow; “Shadows,” said he,
“Where can it be,
This land of Eldorado?’
“Over the mountains Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow, Ride, Boldly Ride,”
The shade replied,
“If you seek for Eldorado !”GWENDOLYN FOX—

When we entered school four years ago, we were very timid and ambitious. However, as our class was a “live one” we soon through this stage passed. We passed through such epidemics as failure, love and marriage, and while so doing, lost a large percentage of our class. We were not very conspicuous as Freshmen, but with our Sophomore year, there came an awakening and we lead the school in social activities.
In our second year we organized early, electing Esther Hart, president, Oakley Rotramel, vice president, and Da'e 15rown, secretary-treasurer. Our class was well represented in the High School play. A valentine masquerade party was given this year by the class which was very picturesque.
In 1919 the Junior Class of F. C. H. S. was organized the first week of school, with Maude Musgrave, president. Lloyd Shipp, vice-president, and Helen Burpo, secretary-treasurer. With these oficers we felt that we were able to do the many tasks which present themselves to Juniors. We started the social ball rolling by giving a party in honor of the Seniors. After this came the Junior play, Junior Christmas party, Junior box supper and last but not least the Junior-Senior reception, which ended in a magnificent banquet.
This year we are Seniors. Our class of officers are as follows: Gwendolyn Fox, president; William Howe'ls, vice-president; and Nina McClintock, secretary-treasurer. Our first social event was a truck ride given in order to get on intimate terms with our teachers. This was followed by a fareweU party for Miss Grosse. As we felt very proud of our B. B. team, we gave them a banquet in March.
We are glad to be Seniors. We have had four happy years in which to contribute our bit to our Alma Mater; and we here advise the under classmen to make the most of their opportunities to do the same. We are the second c'ass to graduate from the newly organized community high school; and as such, we wish to thank the citizens of our community for placing such a wonderful opportunity within our grasp.Glass of Z
It was just about four years ago,
(Hut we can hardly know it’s so)
That we were known as Freshies, green.
For swiftly flew the years between—
Then came our day of Sophs so wise,
And at length we entered the Junior skies.
We had l een watching the Seniors so bold.
And now we are Seniors—just seventeen, all told.
First there is Gwen, our president, fine She seems to be fitted for that sort of line,
Along comes Sylvia with her laughing ways;
And Edith surpasses all with her A’s.
Quiet, modest and mee': is our Opal White Now who has seen Yale out late at night?
Just gaze at Luciel with her golden locks Then watch our great scientist, wise Paul Cox.
Maude is our yell leader, so full of pep;
Louis has as his motto “Please, Watch Your Step!” Now Ethel tells us to “Look Up; Not Down;”
Why Lloyd can never at study be found ?
Eagle’s great hobby is Dasket Ball,
And Zelga’s is studying—if any at all.
Addie’s s'ogan is “On With the Dance;”
William is always gaming with chance.
Miss Irene is so quiet and very demure.
Sha'l Nina’s gay spirit ever know cure?
Mr. Allen has the title of “Senior Advisor”
And no class ever had a wiser.
We hope the next class will have just as much fun We had as Seniors of Twenty-One.
Our long High School days—tho not weary—now end, And we leave as a parting “Good Luck to Our Friends.”(Class }Jrnphmf
’Twas a very warm day in July, and I was sitting in the l oat holding a fishing rod; either the hot sun made me unconscious or 1 fell asleep and dreamed:
I was in Los Angeles trying to satisfy my curiosity as to just how pictures were made. I had always desired to view the Mack Sennet Company, so 1 went on to his studio. 1 found that Lloyd Shipp had superseded him as manager, and that he was featuring Edith Jones as his “star” beauty. I asked about the other members of the class, and Edith said that Ethel was doing social settlement work in San Francisco, concerning the Asiatic immigrantion. She said she also heard from Eagle occasionally, and that he was now editor on the excellent magazine, the Police Gazette.
I took up my journey, and stopped next in Denver. I found the people all excited over a new home for defective alligators, which had l een recently erected there. Desiring to view such a place, I went out to the location. I found the philanthropist who had erected it, to be Pill Howells. I wasn’t very much surprised at that though, for Pill had a leaning toward that line. Pill showed me over the buildings. We came to the hospital for the sick alligators, and there I saw Gwen Fox anxiously watching over the bedside of a sick alligator who had typhoid fever. Pill said that Gwen’s life was spoiled when she failed to get the man she wanted, and that she now devoted all of her time to charity. Pitying her sad lot, he had given her the position of matron of the alligator home. Pill took me to the theatre that evening, and while there I saw Louis Rodenbush, who was a very pro ninent political leader. In fact, he was the speaker of the House. Nina McClintock was there, a'so. Pill said she lived for fashion alone, and that her husband and children had to take care of themselves.
The curtain rose, and 1 turned my attention to the stage. Luciel Gray was featured in a musical comedy. Then came Addie Moore in her wonderful new dance, “The Kalamazoo.”
We left the theatre and I boarded the train for St. Louis. Just before we reached our destination, our train was derailed, and I was injured. I was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital. My physician was my o’d friend, Yale Downes. Under the wonderful influence of my nurse, Maude Mus-grave, I quickly recovered. Acting upon the advice of my lawyer, Irene Porritt, I sued the railroad company for ten thousand dollars damages. I sought for information concerning my other class mates, and found that Opal White was a fashionable modiste in “gay Paree” and that Sylvia Griffin was missionary to the natives of New Guinea. Paul Cox was an Intemational croquet champion, though he still does scientific work as a side line---
Just then I got a bite and awakened abruptly, only in time to keep the boat from sinking.JFannritr £ mms
Gwen Fox—“You’d He Surprised.”
Maude Musgrave—“There’s a Little Bit of Bad in Every Good Little Girl.”
Yale Downes—“Don’t Take Advantage of My Good Nature.”

Addie Moore—“Take Me to that Land of Jazz.”

In September ninteen hundred and eighteen the class of twenty-two entered high school as verdant Freshmen. Forty entered the West Frankfort high school and twenty enrolled in the Heights school.
Of course we endured the giggles of the upper classmen and small embarrassments such as entering the wrong classrooms, as bravely as any Freshmen could.
We, being exceptionally bright Freshies, soon mastered the queer ways of high school, also the secrets of the mysterious algebraic A’s and X’s.
During the second semester the West Frankfort school engaged in a contest between the two English classes . Section A won and was entertained by section B by a theatre party. The play “Les Miserables” was enjoyed by every one present.
At the Heights we had a real sure enough class party the second week of school.
Early in the term the schools were closed on account of influenza, which was raging at that time. After school was resumed we had little time for amusements, as we were compelled to work hard to make up for lost time during the epidemic.
In the golden Autumn of nineteen-twenty we were enrolled as Sophomores in the Frankfort Community High School. We numbered forty-nine, having lost some of the members of the preceding year.
We began the year by showing the Freshies how superior we were to them in every way possible.
In the first semester we gave a party. Owing to the fact that the guards did not do their duty, some bandits succeeded in stealing our ice cream. It was promptly rescued and was none the worse except for being melted.
Both cur boys’ and girls’ teams won pennants in the basket baH tournament of the classes. The regular high school team consisted mainly of our Sophomore boys.
In April we gave a banquet in honor of our basket ball teams.
In the Fall of nineteen-twenty, thirty-six Juniors entered the high school.
Our numl er had decreased by thirteen but we were still the “live wires” of high school life.
Our first social affair was a weiner roast. We met at the band stand and walked to the Little White Church. We told ghost stories, roasted marshmallows and weiners. Everyone present had a very good time.
In January we gave a class party. The teachers were invited so we might have a letter chance to get better acquainted with our new instructors, to whom we owe so much.
Our class is even more brilliant this year than last. Our boys lead in athletics and our basket ball rnd foot ball teams are all the better because of them.
We, the class of twenty-two, are destined to make our high school prouder of us in the years to come.Slnllg Jluniora
Hurrah for the Jolly Juniors
And watch ’em while they bring A smile for third year English They’re ready for anything.
They meet semesters with a grin They need not fear or worry,
They take it calm and easy like And are never in a flurry.
When to the athletic field
They turn their whole attention From them are picked the brightest stars, And not from mere convention.
They have the honors every where,
No matter where you find them;
They always leave a streak of fun,
And ambitious air behind them.
W ith heads held high and springing steps, They climb the road of knowledge,
And if their favorite dreams come true, They will soon be safe in college.

After eight years of toil, I entered the F. C. H. S. as a Freshman in 1919.
There were sixty-six of us, therefore, on account of our large numl -er and the great size of some of our students, the Seniors and other classmen left us unmolested.
In the intellectual, athletic and other lines of effort our class did not take the lead. W e felt it our duty as Freshmen to give these honors to the Sophomore class, who needed them worse than we, for we were all large enough to take the lead without them.
Our class meetings and elections were rather noisy and our students gave promise of being excellent cowboys and sodiers in case they should ever be needed as such. Through a buzz of noise and clatter, Paul Law-son was elected president, Ilalene Harrison, secretary and Miss Flora, class advisor.
Our first affair was a wiener roast. This was composed chiefly of kind hearted upper classmen wTho proposed to come along as escorts. In our first party, things were carried off successfully. loiter our class went on another wiener roast. A few considerate Juniors attempted to aid us, with the eats but they were too late as we had already eaten.
During the year we lost a larger per cent of students than we gained, yet most of us passed over the brink successfully and became full fledged Sophomores.
In 1920 we entered again as students of F. C. II. S., having lost about fifteen students and having gained about five. As freshmen we had two p'ayers on the H. S. P . B. team; as Sophs we again claimed places for two that could not be beaten.
Class elections were more orderly. The students had begun to realize that the Sophs held a real place in F. C. H. S. They were beginning to sit up i nd take notice when the word “Sophomore” was mentioned. Hal-ene Harrison was elected president, Clare Lee, secretary, Miss Washburn and Miss Spragg, class advisors.
Our first event of the Soph year was a truck ride. Next a party in which a few social upper classmen were disappointed because they could take no part in the refreshments. Class tournaments did not turn in our favor but we know that by far, we have the best players.
We know that it w ill necessarily be a sad day for the school when the light hearted Sophs depart.
Our class is gradually excelling all other classes (so we think) and will soon be at the very top.
We are preparing to surpass all in grades, fun and all sports in our Junior year and continue this work until time to leave. Then perhaps we shall not even leave, who knowrs ?
But unless the school cannot possib'y do without us. we will leave in 1923. The jolliest and most loyal class that F. C. H. S. has sent away. And leave a record behind that no one can equal.
Our colors, purple and gold, wave over the class to lead us on with victory into our Junior vear.

September the sixth dawned bright and fair. The long looked for day had arrived, and we, the eighth grade graduating class of ’20 were now entering into high school life as Freshies.
With quaking hearts and lagging steps we approached the building, not singly, but in groups.
We l egan at once to show the upper-classmen what Freshies can do. The first week of our high school career we called a meeting, electing officers and selecting an advisor.
The officers are: Kuth Musgrave, president: Imogene
Grosse, vice-president; Fred Gray, secretary; Byron Fuller, treasurer. Mr. Raymond R. Gregg was selected as class advisor.
The first week in October marked the date of our first class party. Need'ess to say, it was a success.
Our Freshmen boys showed their athletic ability by winning the class tournament.
Although, at first, we were rather awkward and green to the ways of the high school it cannot lie denied that we are the best class ever. Watch us grow these next three years.®be SrmtbUa nf a JFrrsbntau
A Freshman here at the F. C. H. S.
lias troubles lasting while he rests;
And when he kneels at night to pray,
He asks for strength to bear his troubles.
At morn his courage is increased,
And from his troubles he’s released.
Then, when too soon the school l ells sound He sinks desparingly to the ground.
He gulps a hurried breakfast down,
Then goes to school with aching crown.
When he comes up to Latin class,
His teacher says he’ll never pass.
Then, with increasing discontent,
His mind on Algebra must be bent.
In English he takes his place,
And still more hardships he must face.
And thus he goes until at last,
His Freshman year is nearly past,
And then the Freshman has to look With dilligence in every book,
For well he knows he must not rest.
For Semesters, an horrid pest.
Then too, if he should fai' to pass.
He’d never catch up with the class.
He studies hard till Semester week.
When he appears all shy and meek,
And when he’s done his very best,
He finds he’s passed, like all the rest.
And since he’d made a great success,
And passed at length each awful test,
Of h's first year in this high school,
’Twas thought he was not quite a fool.

May 6, 1920 the Juniors gave the Seniors a banquet in the Elks’ Hall. In spite of the rain both classes and the faculty came out in “full force.” The hall was beautifully decorated in the colors of the two classes. The evening passed all too quichly in games and contests. Then came the banquet with its speeches and toasts. All departed at a late hour pronouncing the affair a grand success.
On Thursday night, Septeml er 23, the Seniors gave a get-acquainted truck ride for the teachers. Some of the class were a little late and the driver refused to take us to all the places we had planned to pass through. When we arrived home we felt that we were, at last, better acquainted with the teachers. The Senior girls prepared the “eats” and the Ixiys brought a “goodly supply of coke.”
When the American History class learned that Miss Grosse was to leave us they immediately planned a surprise party for her. They met at the home of Edith Jones January 27th. When they had all assembled some of the teachers brought Miss Grosse, who was indeed surprised. The class gave Miss Grosse an ivory clock as a remembrance.
On March 26th the Seniors entertained the First and Second Basket Ball teams with a banquet.
Friday night, April 8, Mrs. Itodenbush entertained the Seniors and the faculty. After enjoying themselves immensely all departed at a late hour, voting Mi's. Rodonburh to lie an excellent hostess and declaring they had had the “best time ever.”
To follow:—Senior Banquet, Faculty Banquet and Class Party.SJuuinr burial Affaire
Early in the spring of 1920, the Sophomore class gave a banquet in honor of their two teams, the boys and girls, who won first place in the class tournament. The banquet hall was gaily decorated in the class colors, yellow and white. An excellent “spread” was served, thanks to Misses Holbrook and Breyfogle.
On the fourteenth of May a farewell party was given at the home of Grace Lamkin in honor of Blanche Norman, who was going to spend the summer in Kansas. As usual, the class colors predominated as decorations, and the table committee served a delicious lunch. The evening was spent in contests and games, the class, very appropriately singing, “Farewell to Thee,” before going home.
In October the Junior class tramped to “'lne Willows” where they enjoyed roasted weiners and marshmallows. This was the first social function for the Junior class, and they took advantage of it, having a good time such as only the Junior class knows how.
On the 21st of January our class gave a party in the gym. This was the first chance the c'ass had to entertain and become really acquainted with all of the teachers, and from what we heard, they must have been ably entertained. A lot of games were played and Miss Gregory displayed her art of swift running. Everybody reported a good time.
nphumnrr burial Affairs
The first Soph class social affair was in October, soon after the organization of the classes and election of officer . The largest truck which could l e found was obtained and “eats” were placed in the front and the truck started. We missed one of the teachers l)ecause the driver did not stop. Everyone walked across the bridge between West Frankfort and Herrin because it is condemned. Arriving in Herrin, we entered the confectionery.
On the return trip between Johnston City and Herrin, we stopped, built a bon fire, roasted weiners and had plenty of bun - and pickles. The truck was crowded so we took turns standing up. It was a tired but very happy crowd that reached their homes in West Frankfort and Orient.
In Noveml er the Sophomores gave a party. Although a few were absent, there were p'enty present to have a good time. An attempt was made during the party by a few Junior and Senior boys to get the “eats” and break up the party, but it failed, as thi Sophs were prepared for the attempt.
The teachers present were: Miss Spragg, Miss Grosse, Miss Quinlan and Mr. Ellis. Games were played and it seemed the teachers were as popular as the pupils, and they also had just as hearty appetites.iFattif, thr Nnii filrmbrr
It was in 1918 when a tribe of lx ys decided to admit a fat boy, known as “Fatty Harris,” to their tribe. Hut first he had to be initiated, and after a long discussion they decided to initiate him in the “Old Graham House,” down by “Lincoln’s Woods.” “The Old Graham House” was sold and it was said that ghosts haunted this oid deserted place. The Lincoln Woods were also supposed to be haunted, because a tramp had once l een found murdered in a dense part of the wood.
It was on the night of February the second that that bunch of boys with one of the town’s young inhabitants started down the road to the “Old Graham House.” After a walk of about a mile they reached the old house. A candle was seen lighted in one of the old rooms of the house, and it was explained to the fat, nervous boy that two of the tribe members were within. After they had reached the door, and it had been opend to admit the Ixiy, they reached the old stirway. Up its screaky stairs they walked, each step adding to the fear of the fat one. When they had knocked three times, the door opened and the interior of the room could be seen. There was a skeleton’s head, a few bones, and a judge’s hammer. The fat boy saw this without any less dread than that with which he had viewed the house. When all were within the room, the door was closed by one of the members. The l oy to lie initiated was then told to get on his knees. When he was upon his knees, a cloth was put over his eyes and he was told not to move or yell until one of the members, who was captain, counted ten. The counting then began, and the fear of the boy grew with each count. It was not known to the fat boy that the members were leaving one by one, and that the captain had also left, a'though he w’as still counting. The captain counted louder and louder at each step he took until ten was reached. Then started the fat one’s experience. He pulled the cloth off his eyes and jumped to his feet at the thought of being left alone, in an old dark room by himself. The boys, before they had left the room, had blown the candle out. The fat boy then made his way to the door and his fear was renewed by the sounds of footsteps near him. It was a moonlight night and the light which came in through an open window gave enough light to see the stairway. “Fatty” darted for it, and when about half way down, he saw a white figure before him, over the banister he went, only to fall on his side, then up again on his run towards an opening, only to hesitate, then start through an open door across the lot and up the road at a race, which, if it had l een timed, would have broken the record for a fat boy. The white thing which “Fatty” saw was a sheet hung up by the boys from the ceiling of the room, and when a string which was held by a member, was pulled, it made the sheet move.

Alxmt five miles from the little village of Rochelle, there stood an old square frame house, which needed a coat of paint very badly. This old house was two and one-half stories high and to l x k at it one could tell that at one time it had been a very beautiful house. It was set far back from the road and tall oak trees stood in the front yard.
Now, years ago, an old man had lived alone in this house. He had very few friends and he lived a secluded life.
The neighbors watched this house for severa 1 days, and seeing no sign of life about the house, they decided to go and see if the old man was sick.
Upon entering his bedroom, they found him lying on his bed, murdered.
Now, many, many years have passed since this time, although this house has always remained vacant, on account of the neighbors thinking it was haunted.
Of late a light had l een seen in the old man’s bedroom, between eight and ten o’clock every night. Some superstitious neighbors l elieved this was the old man’s ghost returning.
In the village of Rochelle there lived two little boys, named Jimmy Carlyle and Billy Winthrop. These little l oys had played that they were l)old pirates and were afriad of nothing. When Jimmy and Billy heard of this old house which was supposed to be haunted, they wanted very much to seet it.
They decided upon a night to go. They were to meet at the railroad crossing.
Billy and Jimmy met at eight thirty and went to the house. As they approached, they could not see the light of which they had been told, so they decided to go inside.
They found their way into the house and reached the stairway. They went into the old man’s l edroom and just then heard the stairs creaking as if someone were climbing them. The little boys became frightened and went into the clothes closet, which opned off the bedroom.
They were very still l)ecause they did not want to be heard. After a while two men came into the bedroom with a lantern. They began to talk very low, but the two boys could understand what they were saying.
The men were planning to rob a fast train which passed through Rochelle at one o’clock. They made all of their plans and then left the house.
Jimmy and Billy gave the men time to get away from the house then they left, running as fast as they could run.
They went to the Chief of Police of Rochelle and told him all they had heard. He telegraphed the town nearest Rochelle, through which the train should pass, warning them of their danger. By being on their guard they were able to quickly airest the robrers.
It was afterward learned that these men were old train robbers, and had given the police much trouble. The reward offered for the arrest of these men, was gladly given to the boys.

Saturday, May 7, 1921, was a very busy day for the students and officials of the F. C. H. S., as they were preparing the field for the afternoon performance. The Mt. Vernon athletes arrived on the noon train and were ready to start the ball rolling at 2:00 p. m.
Lee, of West Frankfort, won the individual cup with 24 points to his credit. Martin and Make tied, both having thirteen points. Cox captured one point, making a total of fifty-one points for West Frankfort.
The Mt. Vernon boys rolled up a total of thirty-nine points. They also carried off the banner for the relay team. The Mt. Vernon l oys are good clean sports, and show lots of pep.
This was a very good initiation for the field and we hope that other contests will come out with as good results.
Early in September Coach Allen called a meeting for all the boys who expected to play football. There were about twenty-five l)oys present. Two teams were organized and a few simple signals were decided upon. The personnel was temporary and subject to change.
Evenings from three-thirty to five o’clock were given over to practice and the first team was soon selected.
In the year 1919-20 the football team had not l een organized because conditions at that time were not favorable. This year, however, a good team has been developed, considering that this is the first year that the l oys now in high school have played football.
The schedule follows:
Christopher 0 F. C. H. S 24
Eldorado 0 F. C. II. S 0
Benton 30 F. C. H. S 7
Christopher 7 F. C. H. S 7
Marion 16 F. C. H. S ...... 0
Eldorado 13 F. C. H. S 0
Marion 13 F. C. H. S. ...... 6
Herrin 19 F. C. H. S 37
The following was the lineup for the football team: William Monti,
L. E.; Clare Lee and Chas. Pittman, L. T.; Paul Cox and Alfred Thompson. L. G.; Frank Jacobs, C.; Paul Lawson, R. G.; Harold Kaiser, R. T.; Tom Blake, R. E.; Luke Gladders, Captain. Q. B.; Eagle Gray and Clare Lee. R. H.; Arty Martin and Veto Krevienas, L. H.; Noble Rains, F. B.
Our football team, for the year 1921-22, is expected to be a very strong team as we have practically the lineup for next year that formed this year’s team.Saakrtball, 1U2U-21
Basketball was taken up immediately after the football season ended. They were assigned to different groups with which they were to practice. After about a week of practice, the first and second teams were chosen. The squad, this year, is nearly the same as that of last year.
The lineup for the first team was as follows: Clare Lee, center; Arty Martin, Captain, forward; Thomas Blake, forward; Nob'e Bains, R. guard; Paul Lawson, B. guard.
The lineup for the second team was as follows: William Howells,
center: Frank Jacobs, forward; Eagle Gray, forward; Leon Henson and Chas. Pittman, R. guard; Don Henson, B. guard.

A meeting was called by coach Allen for the purpose of learning the names of boys who were going out for baseball and track.
A few training rules were made. Mondays and Wdnesdays were the days for track and field practice—these days and Thursdays for baseball. Suits were bought for the baseball team and equipment for the track and field teams.
We have a much better chance this year for a successful team than we had last year. We have a new athletic field and more material.
The baseball schedule is fairly complete and we expect to have a few dual track meets with the neighboring cities.
We also expect to enter the Southern Illinois track meet May 14th, at Murphysboro.I
Of all the brave deeds.
In behalf of friends,
A lad in our class
Has them all skinned.
With his friends nearly starving,
And no supper in sight;
Arty made his wild climb,
In the dead of the night.
Going down the fire escape,
An old rusty iron ladder;
Strength and nimbleness only,
Kept this tale from being “sadder.”
The ground was reached in safety at last,
He paused a moment till his nerves were letter.
Then, fearing his emblem would be seen He stopped and turned his sweater.
He started then upon his way,
Along the dark and narrow street;
Ever zigzagging back and forth;
Fearing Mr. Allen, he might meet.
He safely reached a baker’s shop.
And purchased buns and pies;
Then hurried back to his starving friends,
And started upward, toward the skies.
This task was a dangerous one;
It took much care and strife;
In one hand rested the buns and pies,
In another, rested his life.
After hours, it seemed, of dread and fear,
He reached the third floor, at last;
In time to save his dying friends,
For their strength was ebbing fast.

There are gains for all our losses,
There are balms for all our pains;
Hut when youth, the dream, departs,
It takes something from our hearts,
And it never comes again.
We are stronger, and are letter,
Under manhood’s sterner reign;
Still we feel that something sweet,
Followed youth with flying feet,
And will never come again.
Something beautiful has vanished,
And we sigh for it in vain;
We behold it everywhere.
On earth, and in the air,
Hut it never comes again.

Is It of Any Value to You? Is It Saved or Spent ?
An income, large or small, spent as fast as it is earned, is the means of forming a habit of extravagance, which must eventually lead to debt and hard work.
The habit of regularly banking a part of that income will lead to success and financial independence.
If you have not started to bank your money—start. If you
have started and stopped—start again. If you have already started—don’t stop.
Feel free to come in and see us at any time, whether or not we handle your account. Consult us about any financial matter on which you need advice. We shall always be glad to see you and to help you in any way possible.
