We  saw it every Saturday night in the  Acme Hardware as we walked home  from the movies.  John said we couldnV afford it,  and was dead-set against selling our  one remaining bond or drawing on  Aunt Jean's $200 inheritance we had  tucked away in a special savings  account to be forgotten except in absolute emergency.  "But, John," I wailed, '-we can't go on losing food"  with that old worn-out fridge. And what about the  repair bills you have to tiay for it every few weeks?"  He just bit his lip. #  That was two weeks ago.  Funny how things happen. Next day ^  I read an item in one of those women's  columns about "borrowing and saving"  by Personal Planning at the Bank of ^T^  Montreal. It was about a situation sort |$^|j  of like our own.  So into the local B of M branch I went.^Shbwed  the Manager the clipping from the paper, told him  our situation exactly, and in ten minutes he said he'  thought we could work out the problem without  too much double. He asked me to bring John in to  discuss the full details. As we walked out of his office,  he gave me a copy of "Personal  Planning".  That book opened our eyes  about our finances.  The very next day John and I  saw Mr. Easton, the Manager.  After a few questions' to my husband about his job, His salary ���  about, our bond and bur "emer-  gency" bank balance, he said he'd  be  glad   to   lend  us  the  $350  needed for the fridge. He was satisfied we could pay off  the loan in a year at $30 a month, and we arranged to  transfer our special savings account to his office and  to pledge our bond until the loan was paid.  Mr. Easton talked over the budget-plan John and I  had begun to work out . . . said we were starting out  right. "Even though you've got a bank loan," he smiled,  "you're really saving your savings"  And that fridge . . . such a beauty. Already, John  and I both call it "MY BANK".  Hm  Saving is the only way to move ahead of your worries, and  stay ahead. And ��� sometimes ��� borrowing at the B of M is the  best way to save. Find out how to save despite today's high  prices. Asks for your copy of "Personal Planning" at your  neighborhood B of M branch. It's yours for the asking.
