Bankers Are Not Profiteers!
While almost every commodity in the -world is
doubling nnd trebling in price, the price of money has
lemained praclicaliy the same.
Bankers are not profileers. They make their money
by handling a large volume of business. Their earnings
are modest on the money invested.
They do thousands of things for the citizens of
every community without remuneration.
The enormous burden of making income tax re
turns for our customers and the caring for the immense
amount of work in connection with Liberty Bond sales
are real services to the Nation.
A bank must make a certain profit or it will not
interest either capital or the right kind of leaders.
This bank wants every man to make enough mar
gin of profit so that the necessities of life, a home and a
reserve for old age can be provided.
Let us justify your patronage by good service and
fair treatment.

From Wednesday's Daily.
Yesterday afternoon tne ladies of
the Plattsmouth post of the Woman's
Relief Corps enjoyed an occasion of
unusual pleasantness when they
were the guests at the charming
home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Tun
Kate 3104 California street, Omaha.
It was a very happy event for all
the members of the party and the
opportunity of spending a few hours
with the hostess, who is the only liv
ing charter member of the Platts
mouth W. R. C. and who was for
many years one of the most faithful
and deoted workers in the patriotic
society while a resident in this city.
The occasion brought back the mem
ories of the past years in the old
home when Mrs. Tungate had been
active in the work of the organization
and her royal hospitality afforded
the members of the party demon
strated that she still retained a deep
feeling of friendship and interest in ,
the work of the old friends and asso- j
The very attractive home of Mr.
and Mrs. Tungate had been charm
inglv arranged in decorations of the
fall flowers, the stately chrysanth-l
mums prevailing in the decorative !
fclieme and in the table decorations,
the flowers made a pleasing note in
the beauty of the table. The center
piece was a large pyramid of the
choicest fruits and at each plate tiny
silk American flags were used as
favors, and with the snowy linen
and sparkling glass and silver made a
scene of the greatest beauty. At 0
o'clock a very delightful 2-course din
ner was served by the hostess as
sisted by Mrs. Mural Manchester of
Omaha and which came as a most
enjoyable feature of the pleasant af
ternoon. !
The ladies enjoyed a very pleasant
time in visiting as well as in the
many pleasing musical numbers giv
en by Miss Genevivitt Whelan. who is
attending the conservatory of music
in Omaha and who was one of the
members of the party and the mem
bers of the party also spent some
time in singing the old songs as well
as in dancing. j
In honor of her long and faithful
service in the corps. Mrs. Tungate
was presented by the Plattsmouth la
dies with a beautiful silk flag and
standard, the presentation speech be
ing made by Mrs. George A. Dodae
and to which Mrs. Tungate responded j
very feelingly and the beautiful flag
will be long treasured by the re
cepieiit as a token of the hich es
teem felt for her by the old friends
in Plattsmouth.
Those attending , from this city
were Messrs and Mesdames John
Fight. T. W. Glenn. Mesdames Val
Burkle. L. B. Ecenbcrger. F. G. Eg
enberger. Robert Troop, Mrs. Wood
rey. Michael Whelan. Alice Cowles.
George Dodge. Elizabeth Forbes. J.

and Asbury Jacks. Mrs. E. S. Bar--tov
