unpleasant, but overdrafts are
nerve-racking, sleep-killing and
nightmare producing. They
cause gray hairs, the loss of
friends and money.
All good bankers frown down
on the practice. The highest
courts have declared overdrafts
to be illegal and that they should
not in any case be allowed. Offi-

A ChecK Account gives a systematic
record of all business tr ansactions
Just as each check is a full ac-
count of the particular transac-
tion, so all the checks Xou issue
are a record of yonr business
transactions. Can you oft' rd to
be without this means to sys-
tematise your business?
When you jssus a cheek for
every obligation, you can bs
positive that you cancsllsd ths

complete record—the dat«, a-
mount, to whom and from whom,
and with both parties' signatures.

as it did others.
