Troop 125
In spite of a small-sized blizzard,
the Scouts of Troop 125 had a jolly
time at their Christmas party.
Games and a short skit were the
features of the evening. After the
games we gathered in a circle and ex-
changed presents. We each drew one
from a grab-bag and opened the gifts
in rotation.
Refreshments were served and songs
were sung. A good-night circle closed
the meeting.

more and for the last time
speak of the Christmas Club.
The New Year is now underway and it is time to seal the
Christmas Club in favor of the routine business.
Therefore, next week will see the closing of the rolls and if you
want to have a Hperfect '36" it behooves you to adopt this excellent
form of methodical saving.
In the year just closed 312 millions of dollars were distributed
to Christmas Club members in the nation and it is reported that of
this amount 40 per cent went immediately for retail purchases, 25
per cent into banking accounts (in many cases the first checking
account to be opened by the individual) and the remainder was
used to pay fixed charges of various kinds.
From all of which it is obvious that the custom is too intrinsi-
cally valuable to be discontinued, even if it is not a particularly
profitable department of Bank activity, from the standpoint of im-
mediate return but our opinion is that the Bank should not
be reluctant to Hcarry on" when such substantial community service
can be rendered.
So we say again, that if you have not already become a mem-
ber of our Christmas Club, now is your last opportunity to do so
for this year and don't forget that you can qualify by depositing as
little as a quarter weekly.
And you will do wisely by inducing the young people to use
this means of learning well the law-and-order which is so necessary
m money-matters.
