STANDARD-STAR, New Rochelle. N. Y. April, 1953


All This and Interest Too
     SAVING was complicated in the Nineteenth century too, as the intriguing exhibit above, now on display at the New Rochelle Federal Savings and Loan Association, shows. A fat man will deposit the coin in his midriff, a chicken will dash out from under a mother hen to pick up a deposit, a mule will kick it into the bank, or William Tell will shoot an apple off his son's head when a deposit is made. Hundreds have visited the unusual exhibit.         Staff Photo
