My son B~n manager of the. His checid~u ~~ tZine ;; ;~ , "Tea bags, too. I never want to see another wet tea bag hung on the clothesline to dry!" Sandy, being a rather practical young woman, asked, at this point, from whence came the windfall. "I deposited it to our account," Ben answered in the patient tone one uses toward tiresome children. "It says so, right here on this little slip of paper." "It must be a mistake," Sandy declared. "Don't be silly," Ben admonished his worried wife, "Banks don't make mistakes. They've told me that, over and over and over - every time our checkbook is fouled up." "Let's open the rest of the mail," suggested Sandy, neatly slitting an envelope bearing the return address of the National Bank of Commerce in Olympia. "What's this?" queried Ben, snatching from her fingers an ominous-looking little paper. It was an extremely cool notice that his account was overdrawn six dollars and sixty-three cents worth. "I sure can't remember spending all that money," Ben sighed. "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away," said Sandy. "Easy come, easy go," Ben agreed. He bears his ioss bravely, this stalwart son of mine.

Dirt poor Or filthy rich? It seems to make A difference which. had been duly accredited with his last deposit of ten mill - he did a classic double-take - TEN MILLION NINETY EIGHT DOLLARS AND FORTY EIGHT CENTS ! ! ! ! He leaped to his feet, the pipe going one direction and the slippers another. "We're rich!![" he yelled. "Hey, Sandy! We're rich! Put the light bulbs back in the sockets, and quit watering the kids' milk!" "Gee," said Sandy, "Could I maybe from now on use the coffee grounds only once?" Save-Rite Grocery near Potlatch, just lost ten million dollars. On a grocer's salary, that's not easy. Returning to his home after a long, hard day of doing whatever it is that a grocery store manager does, Ben broke out the pipe and slippers, settled down in the easy chair and turned to the day's mail. First he opened the envelope bearing the return address of the National Bank of Commerce of Olympia. Out fell a deposit slip which he scanned briefly and set aside. "ALL THAT I AM or ever hope to be in the financial world I owe to the early training received at my mother's somewhat twisted knee," declares Danford, multi-millionaire for five and a half minutes. e In LOWREY Bazaar Slated A bazaar and bake sale will be held from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. today in the PUD auditorium by Eagles Auxiliary No. 2079.
