VOLUME 2, NUMBER 8 Shelton, Washington AUGUST 1971 Most stores in the area are having back-to-school sales, and the time to outfit your students for a return to classes is now. Do some comparing when you shop, to make certain you're getting the most for your money. This doesn't necessarily mean the lowest price. An inexpensive article of clothing may increase it's overall cost in many ways. If it must be dry-cleaned, or hand laundered, you will find the cost of wearing it rising. Or, it may not last as long as a similar article which costs a dollar or two more. (6085) Wash and wear fabrics are generally the best buys, because in most cases they resist stains, and need only touching up with the iron. However, not all "wash and wear" treatments are the same. It pays to stay with brands that you know. When your young ones are at the "growing" stage, and they're shooting up faster than you can clothe them, it can pay to buy clothing that's a little longer in the limbs than they need, and do some hemming. Kids have always been able to outgrow clothes before they wear them out. Just as it's important to shop around when making a purchase, you can also save money in the way you pay for it. Cash is the best way. You avoid all interest and carrying charges, and the best way to have cash available is by having a sound savings program, and collecting dividends, not paying interest. Your Credit Union paid 5%% on shares last dividend period. (4753) If you can't pay cash, then find the most economical way to use your credit. "Revolving" and "E-Z Pay" charge methods are generally carried at 18% true annual interest percentage. Loan companies will charge you up to 36% to carry a loan of this type. Mason County Federal Credit Union can loan you the amount needed for any worthwhile purchase at 12% true annual percentage or less. Come see us for money for back-to-school buys. 4mll~ 411lip -lulll~ .11111~ .imn~ 'qlll~ .911~ ,.lmlll" "lllmb qmm~ "lulJP '1~11~ ~ull~" '11111~ "lml~ "1~11~ ~ ~:i~ 2 ~i~i RON ELLEDGE, Manager of the local Miller's Department store, is shown here assisting in the purchase of back to school clothing. Ron is a member of the Credit Union's Education Committee. Along with the new share insurance comes security regulations, and the Credit Union will be installing new security devices to protect its more than 3,500 members. One of our little members is shown here making his own security check to be sure his records are safe. (114) EFFECTIVE ENIN Right here in black and white is a good example of a confusing statement. It's much like some quotations of what credit will cost you. Truth in lending laws require that the borrower be told in writing what the finance charges will be, but this doesn't stop misleading statements during the course of conversation. Be careful, be certain, and get it in writing- then compare. This past month, Howard Smith, who is retired from state employment, Oliver Gray, Oyster Grower at Lilliwaup, and Sandy Denison, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Denison, all missed their $5.00. New numbers are hidden this month. Thursday, August 19, 1971 - Shelton-Mason County Journal - Page 13
