LOUIS CLEVELAND BALTIMORE SAN FRANCISCO An Investor's Experience Recently an architect came to one Sof our offices and made a large Siurchase of bonds for an estate of which he was executor. "I know that your House investigates rigid - ly and Surchases only safe bonds for your offerings to the public," said he. "You may remember that several years ago I was inter ested in the erection of the........... Building. We wanted to issue bonds, and offered the loan to you, - You refused it, after investigation, on the ground that the loan was _ too large to be safe-which I must = admit was true. Although your refusal interfered with my 6lans at that time,/it proved to me that you maintain high standards of safety. That is why I come to you =H now when I want to invest instead of borrow." C AREFUL investigation is the first duty of the respon sible and reputable investment House, and is, after all, the chief S est safeguard of the investor.
