Beware
the
MOTH!
THE moths will get you, if you . . . don’t . . .
watch . . . out ... In fact, there's only one
100% foolproof method of outwitting those
sly and ingenious fellows, and that is to have
your winter clothes cleaned by Quality Clean
ers before you hang them away in the closet
When moths get near Quality Cleaned Clothes,
they throw up their hands and fly away. What
is more, you will be delighted next winter to
find your clothes cleaned and pressed, ready to
wear (and not even nibbled at by Mr. Moth.)

Find A Complete
Stone Age Town'
Cologne, Germany .—The first cat?
plete village of the men of the n >v
stone age lias been uncovered i*i
LindenUial, a suburb of Cologne.
Five thousand years ago. it tolls
1 a story not much different from
l that of the middle ages a few hun
dred years ago.
I Around the entire village was a
i moat albout’ seven feet deep and lfi>
feet wide. Beyond it was a palisade j
, of piles.
"Pieces of broken pottery were
found in the moat,” says Dr. Fritz
Fremersdorf, director of the excav a
, lions, “indicating that this mo.u
: existed at the time of the village.
“Although our scientific exnvu
1 tions begun cnly on August 1, 1930
! the results' so far surpass all ex
• pectations. Pottery of tills neoiitl -
ic period Has been found scattered
all the way from the Balkans to
Belgium and Holland, but no com
plete settlement had previously teen
{brought to light.
“The foundations of many of the
| huts are complete. The building
! plots are for the most part irregular
! and curved In the shape of kidneys
Surrounding these are holes of
wooden piles, proving beyond doubt
that wooden huts once stood there.
“In seme cases we found king,
narrow slits cut into the ground..
Possibly they were devices for key
ing meat cool.
"A few rectangular plots also
have been uncovered. One was al
most 70 feet long, with parallel
posts running lengthwise inside. II
had neither hearth nor other evi
dence of civilization.”
‘ Much pottery lias been found, all
i made before the potter's wheel wai
! known There are large quantities
of the tools of the new stone age
man, hand mills, flint knives, arrero
heads and batebets and th« bones
of animals made into tools.

How Much
Will It Cost
TO SEND
YOUR BOY OR GIRL
TO COLLEGE?
If it costs $3,000.00, and she or he is now
eleven years old, you can have the $3,000.00 on
hand when they reach the age of 17—if you
will come in now and start 30 shares of Builds
ing and Loan.
To carry the 30 Shares you would have to
pay in $7.50 a week for 332 weeks. Then when
they reach the college age you have the $3,
000.00 ready instead of having to borrow' or
scrape around to get up the money or perhaps
not be in position to send them to college.
Think this over, talk it over with your boy
or girl. THEN START.
