Does Your Bank Meet With the
Following Requirements?
Are the depositors protected by the Depositors Guaranty Fund
of the State of Nebraska?
Has it proven to you that it is able and willing to take care or"
you ami loan you iiiney in "hard times" as well as when money
is plentiful?
Are its officers ami directors persons of ample financial means,
and ::re they conservative and proven practical bankers?
Io the oiiicers and directors own the majority of the Capital
Stock in the bank, so that by their investment they are sufficiently
interested to do their best at all times, and look after the interests
of their customers "through thick and thin"?
Are you given courteous treatment and prompt service and
made to feel welcome, and shown that your business is appre
ciated? If your bank meets with the above conditions, we
suggest that you continue doing your business where you
are at the present time, as you make no mistake in stay
ing with" an established, reliaoie banking institution,
which has proved to have made good.
P.ut should you be considering making a change in
yuiir banking connections, we shall Ik? glad to have you
call and talk matters over with us. We will treat you right.
