It sometimes happens that you make
a payment which you almost immediate-
ly wish to recall. When you pay by check
you can telephone or wire your bank to
stop payment on that particular check
and if it has not been presented, your
money is safe.
This is only one of the many advan-
tages which a checking- account at this
strong- dependable bank offers you. We
invite the checking accounts of both men
and women. Paying bills by check is
safe and convenient.
