Mutual Building & Loan Assn.

To Prospective. Building & Loan Borrowers;
Non-resident Building & Loan Companies are adver
tising the Fact that they have reduced the monthly payments
of borrowers to $1.10 per month on each $100.00 borrowed,
making the monthly payment the same as the Mutual Build
ing & Loan Association of North Platte. They fail to state
that of the $1.10 paid to the non-resident company, there is
only thirty-five cents credited as a principal payment, the
balance seventy-five cents being taken for interest. Of the
$1.10 monthly payment to this association on each $100.00
borrowed sixty cents is for, interest and fifty cents is credited
as a principal payment. j
This difference in the amount credited the borrower
will result in the borrower in the non-resident company be
ing compelled to pay not less than $25.00 more on each
$100.00 borrowed in order to discharge the debt than they
would if they were doing the business with this Association.
