Building and Loan Association for Maitland
Plans to Join Winter Park B. L.
Plans for establishing a branch of the winter Park Building and Loan Association in Maitland were formulated at the last meeting of the Chamber of Commerce when Dr. A. A. Kent, secretary of the Association, spoke to the members. Dr. Kent explained the aims and methods of build. ing and loan associations and told of the splendid showing of the Winter Park Association, which starting two
years ago with an authorized stock of
50,000.00 has recently increased it to 500,000.00 and is now applying for a further increase which will double the present capital.
Dr. Kent outlined a plan whereby the winter Park Building and Loan Association will extend its activities to include the Maitland district. There are already a number of stockholders of the Association among Maitland people and the Association has been generous in making loans on Maitland property. Under the new arrange. ment, the Association guarantees to loan on Maitland property to the full amount of the stock taken out by Maitland people. The collection of these stock subscriptions will be made through the Bank of Maitland and the funds held there. Maitland will be represented on the Board of Direct tors and the appraisal committee.
This proposition received the approval of the meeting and a commit. tee, consisting of D. G. Spain, A. B. Rowland and E. A. Upmeyer, was appointed to arrange a program of education and to organize a drive among the people of Maitland for the purpose of obtaining stock subscrip. tions.

(For nearly three years the Chaffee jingles have appeared in the advertis ing of The Big Green Barn garage and they have been a source of enjoyment to all. His present contribution published below can not be classed as a jingle, however. In our opinion it is not only his masterpiece, but a bit of verse that is outstanding in current poetry.)
My Town cant be too good for me, Nor I too big or good for it; Though small in size My Town may Id have it big in Push" and "Grit.”
My Town must meet emergencies
With dauntless courage, vim and Pep"
Though progress is not bought with
My Town must not get out of step.”
My Town must tackle every taskGo forward alwaysneer back down. Neath foreign suns though I may bask, Id think with pride of this, My Town.
My Town, of course, is good enough, No matter how my fortunes swell Nor yet how fortune may rebuff. My Towns deafamers I would quell
And yet, down deep within my heart I know My Town improved could be: To help improve Ill do my partMy Town cant be too good for me

Foremost among the needs of a town is the building of homes, and fortunate is the town which is ade. quately provided with the facilities for promoting activity along this line. Maitland is well supplied with come panies providing the necessary labor and materials, but until recently means of financing have been uncer tain and difficult.
Small towns, as a rule, suller a great disadvantage in this question of finance. congregate in cities where business can be carried on a large scale. This is true even of the building and loan associations, which are generally con ceded to be the greatest factor in encouraging thrift and home building And even though some small building and loan associations have been quite successful, the power of these associa tions lies in their intrinsic soundness. which is only assured when they have a large field for their operations. Consequently a small town is deprived of the benefits of a strong local building and loan association and such asso. ciations in nearby cities usually give preference to city property in placing loans. -
The action of the winter Park Building and Loan Association in extending their field to cover, Maitland
Financial agencies tend to
gives us the opportunity to participate in all the benefits of membership in a strong, established association and also to enjoy the privileges obtainable in a local organization. Maitland people may make their stock payments and payments of interest and dues here at the local bank and aside from the convenience to patrons of the B. and L the money will be kept in the town. All money realized from stock subscribed here will be loaned out on Maitland property as the demand requires, although the amount available to home builders is not limited to this amount. A local member on the appraisal committee will ensure fair treatment in valuing property. Later it is anticipated that the community will be adequately represented on the directorate of the association.
One of the strongest features of this arrangement is the saving pos. sibilities. Every dollar you put into the B. and L. will earn % from the day you put it in until the day you draw it out Your dollar stays in Maitland and is used to develop your home town. Although it is in use every day you can get it anytime you want it by just bringing in your pass bookand you can make deposits weekly, monthly, or in any way you want to and in any amount from a dollar up.

A Local Bank For Local People
Your Home Town Comes First
Patronize its Stores and Industries
J. A. BROWN, VPres.
The banks of today render to the general public a much greater and a more diversified service than is gen: erally realized, and more than any other organization or series of organi zations, do they give the people the service which is demanded of them. A bank, as it is organized under the law (exclusive of private banks), is a stock corporation, and as such its main function is to make money for its stockholders. As with any other business a bank depends on the public for its existence, and in order to get a great revolume of business it must offer a great variety of attractions which will appeal to every. one. In giving this constantly expending service the original object of a bank, that of making money for the stockholder, is more or less lost, and a bank today is practically a public institution. Below are some of the many things your bank can do for you: It provides a safe place for you to keep your money, both savings and checking deposits, and a burglarproof vault for your valuables. It is a clearing house for checks on other banks. It furnishes, at a nominal cost, travellers checks for your safety and conveience. Its trust department will handle your estate, and do it much better than an ordinary executor. It provides foreign exchange facilio ties, which you will find most convenient should the occasion arise. It will lend you money if it is able and you are deserving of a line of credit. The above are just a few of the many services which lack of space prohibit explaining, but your bank will do almost anything it can to help you, and will give you good advice on any matter its experience will war. rant. Never hesitate to consult your banker, because he is ready to help you at any time, and is always glad to do what he can.

This fabled hero of Sherwood Forest is said to have taken from the rich to give to the poor, Certainly we know that he and his band of merry woodsmen were sworn to the purpose of freedom, justice and happiness. Driven by tyranny from their honest pursuits and taking refuge in the Kings forest, they lived by hook and crook, playing no small part in the restoration of a just and rightful monarch.
Happily, our government is not subject to the abuses that obtained in England in the time of Robin Hood. No longer is a mans family subject to the indignities of feudal landlords, Now every man may own his home and feel safe in the principle that a mans home is his castle.
A nations prosperity and independence is in almost direct ratio to the percentage of home ownership. Any enterprise that encourages and facilitates home building and ownership is a direct bulwark of democracy.
Building and loan associations are doing a powerful work to strengthen Americas family life. Funds cannot be invested in a more worthy, safer or better paying enterprise.
