SHOULD BE ADOPTED
E are firm believers in the Constitution of the
new State, which should be adopted by an over-
whelming majority. So strong do we believe
it, in fact, that we have ordered a large number of copies
of the new document for our friends and customers, and
cordially invite you to call at our bank and get a copy.
w Our Foundation is as Strong as the
|| Constitution of the New State
E were the first bank to be established in the his-
toric county of Greer, now Jackson county, and
we are proud of the record we have made. Our
motto is safety, courtesy and liberality, which means in-
creasing business, increasing strength, increasing ability
to serve our customers. We expect to make this the
greatest bank in Southwest Oklahoma.
Call and secure a copy of the constitution, read it
carefully, and then vote for its adoption and urge your
friends to do likewise. And bring your banking
