Levi Walston, cashier of the Bank
of Parmville, resumes his war-time
role of bond drive director next week
when the United States Treasury De
partment launches, with the help of
the nation's banks, its Bond-a-Month
campaign, a new plan which Govern
ment officials hope will swell the
savings of American citizens and
stem the threatening tide of inflation.
Under the new campaign, custom
ers authorize the bank to deduct a
certain amount monthly for bonds.
That is all the buyer has to do. The
rest is up to he bank, which deducts
thh sum specified and mails the bond
to the buyer each month. Series E,
F, and G bonds are offered under
the plan which becomes effective
With this month's bank statement,
each customer will receive a special
pamphlet explaining the Bond-a
Month drive and an authorization
blank which, when properly filled out
and returned to the bank, will insure
the customer's monthly purchase.
The authorization requires no post
This effort by the banks is distinct
ly a public service and is another of
those instances in which various
businesses have cooperated with the
Government in its campaigns.
It is rather fortunate that Mr.
Walston's position as cashier of the
bank places him at the head of the
campaign in this community. During
the war, he \v,rj a lively ?.??nneited
with the various drives and at one
time served as county chairman. The
success of the campaign^. reflects the
time and energy he devoted to them.
? The hinks of North Carolina will
cooperate fully with the Treasury
Department in offering the Bond-a
Month plan to depositors, William H.
Neal, president of the North Caro
lina Bankers Association, states.
The Bond-a-Month plan, which
will be inaugurated on a nation-wide
scale beginning June 1, is a ifiethod
whereby bank cheeking amount cus
tomers may purchase one or more C.
S. Savings Bonds, series E, F or G,
monthly by authorising the bank to
! charge their accounts with* the cost.
The bank makes the necessary en
tries, issues the bonds and mails them
to the depositor each month without
any charge for the service.
"The bankers consider this plan an
excellent supplement to the ^pay-roll
savings plan," Neal said. "Those
who do not have a payroll plan avail
able may use the bank purchase plan
if they have a checking account.
"More than 200 banks in the State
are sending out enclosures with bank
statements this month, explaining
the plan and providing a form on
which the depositor may indicate the
type and amount of bonds desired.
Monthly purchases will be one or
more full bonds; there is no provi
sion for partial payments. The de
"We heartily recommend this plan
for regular saving. It is gratifying
to know that North Carolinians own
over 1600,000,000 of these savings
bonds and that this total is steadily
increesingf A great backlog of sav
ings accumulated now when money is
more plentiful will prove a tremen
dously stimulating force in sustain
ing a high level of business in the
years ahead." . 1' ?, 1
