PROCESS OF TAKING JUDGMENT STARTED Spradlin Takes Re course to Law in Ef fort to Thaw Bank The process of taking judgment against debtors of the Elkin Na tional Bank who have made no effort to pay their obligations, has already been started, it was learned Wednesday morning from W. H. Spradlin, receiver, wh 0 stated that other judgments would be asked im mediately. "We are using discretion in this process of seeking judgments," Mr. Spra&lin said, "and desire to work no unnecessary hardships upon those whom we are forced'to deal with in this way. However, our first duty is to look after the depositors." In commenting on the liquidation process, the receiver said that, boiled down to brass tacks, those who owe money to the bank do not really owe it to former officers or to the bank, but to their neighbors and others who are creditors of the bank. It is not the bank's money that he is attempting to collect, but ia the money of those who had de posits there, he said. Thus those who refuse to make any effort to pay are actually hurting their own friends and neighbors, it was pointed out.
