THE ROCKLAND COUNTY TIMES, HAVERSTRAW, N. T., MARCH 20, 1952 PAGE FIVE ADVERTISEMENT NEW CLOTHES BOND SAVINGS PLAN PAYS 10% National Apparel Bonds, an en ­ tirely new type of saving plan in ­ tended to make it easy and profit ­ able for families to budget their men ’ s and boys ’ clothing needs over six-month periods, will be in ­ troduced in Haverstraw by New ­ man ’ s Men ’ s Wear of New Main street beginning April 1. The plan will be held in conjunction with a nation-wide apparel bond drive that starts at the same time. Mr. I. Newman 'Of Newman ’ s Men ’ s Wear described the new bond as a “ sound, anti-inflation saving system that pays 10 per cent interest in extra merchandise to customers every six months as a premium for their thrift. ” The plan works this way: a cus ­ tomer buys a National Apparel Bond in any one of several denom ­ inations, $26, $52, $130, or $260. It is paid for in weekly installments, of $1, $2, $5, or $10, depending upon the size of the bond. In six months the bond is paid for and the customer collects a 10 per cent premium on the amount he has paid in. This premium is in the form of a check for merchandise, Mr. Newman explained that a customer can cash his bond at any time for the full amount paid in, but that he can collect his interest only if the bond is paid up in full. A customer purchasing a bond may buy any merchandise in the store up to the amount paid in at any time without disturbing his rights to interest when the last payment has been made. This includes gift certificates, too, Mr. Newman said. As a result of an exclusive fran ­ chise arrangement. National Ap ­ parel Bonds will be handled ex ­ clusively by Newman ’ s Men ’ s Wear in the Haverstraw area. D. A. MOTORS 9-W at New Main Street HAverstraw 9-5422 Haverstraw, N. Y.

THE X entral ' IDEA Things ^ou'd like to know about your Railroad WhOil Who OnTheTw Boll ? NEW YORK C entral SYSTEM CINTtAL'S ON youg SIDI of the tax roll...the tax paying side. The tracks, stations, bridges it builds and maintains with its own money are taxed locally just like your home, factory or store. Here in New York, New York Central taxes lighten your tax load by more than $20,800,000! $300 MIUION DirruiNCIl Only railroads pay their own way and taxes, too. Heavy, inter-city trucks, subsidized air and barge lines all get far more out of the public funds than they put tn. That ’ s a big difference. In Railroad state and local taxes alone, it ’ s a $300,000,000 difference! RAIUOAD TAXIS AT WORK I New York Central taxes help lay the cornerstone of many a new school. Help you pay the teachers' salaries. Help keep up police and fire departments. That ’ s only fair. But ts it fair to make Central also pay taxes to help subsidize competing transportation? WOULDN ’ T IT Bl TAIRIR for all to compete on the came basis? Then each kind of carrier would do the jobs at which it could earn its way and pay its share of taxes. Your tax load would be light ­ er. You'd get better service all around. And better service for you is the ce : ntral idea ! seated its annual Recensio assem ­ bly.
