Reliable Bonds

IN investment bond is a tremendously human thing. Like

a man, a bond must be reliable, dependable, faithful to
the trust imposed in it, through good times and bad.

Much depends on the reliability of your bonds.
For thirty-eight years the first mortgage bonds safeguarded
under the Straus Plan have proved their reliability. Two
wars and four financial panics have come and gone,
and still theirs is an unblemished record — 38 years
without loss to any investor, and with unvarying prompt

payment of both principal and interest in cash.
If you want a truly reliable investment, free from worry and care and
yielding an interest rate that is attractive but not abnormal, investigate
the Straus Plan. We have published a new booklet which explains how
sums of $500 upward may be invested safely under our Plan. Call or
write today, and ask for
