BUILDING AND LOAN PROGRESS
One of the amazing developments
our time and one of the most helpful
and encouraging, is the progress made
by Building and Loan Associations.
In North Carolina they showed a gain
last year of fourteen million dollars
in assets. They loaned twenty mil- 1
lion dollars to build eight thousand *
homes to house forty thousand peo
In the past five years the Building
and Loan Associations show a gain in
assets from twenty-nine to seventy i
million dollars. We agree with J. F.
Stevens, president of the North Caro
lina Building and Loan League, that
"this is a splendid record, and one
in which we should feel much pride.”
However, as Mr. Stevens points out,
when we compare North Carolina
with other States in this particular,
we find she falls far short of the po
sition she should occupy. We find
there are fifteen other States with a i
greater investment in building and
loan stock. Twelve of these show a
greater gain in assets in 1924. and
three States eaeh show a gain great
er than the total investment in build
ing and loan in North Carol'na. We
find also that twenty States have a
larger investment per eapita than
docs North Carolina, and the per cap
ita nvestment of ten of these is more
than double that of North Carolina,

Ford Sees Combined Plane and

Dearborn, Mich., Sept. 22.—Henry

If a combined dirigible and airplane

naval air disasters might have been
averted, experts say.
They point out that the greatly in
creased pressure in the helium bags of
the Shenandoah, when the dirigible
was suddenly shot to a higher alti
tude, by a line squall, caused the
framework of the craft to give way.
A dirigible with airplane wings
might have been able to either nose
dive down and prevent the “skyrocket

craft had collapsed, the wings might
enable to volplane safely down to the

No retirement by Henry Ford, how

He is a believer in reincarnation.

very readily absorbed with the tone
generally firm and apparently plenty

is no disposition to reach for cotton
or press on advances. The present
feeling regarding the report appears
to be that the ginning figures will
set a new record by a very wide mar
gin and may exert some influence on
tbe figures for the crop expectancy
though some falling off in those is
considered practically certain.
