Investment Not Understood
The owners of the David Rogers
estate ' near Cullowhee', iVsiring ito
sell their holdings consisting of 900
acres at public auction, advertised for ,
bids. Auction companies from Cana
da to Florida submitted bids. When
the kids were opened Monday it was
found that a local firm, the Home
Realty & Auction Company, were the
successful bidders. This large tract
of land will be divided into small
farms and placed on sale early in No
vember. The Home Realty & Auc
tion Company, organized some months
ago, has made remarkable successes
of all sales that it, has conducted to
date. No doubt the coming auction
will add another success. -

or anticipate borrowing in the future
for the purpose of paying for homes.
It is evident therefore that the buil
ding and loan associations in North
Carolina so far have failed to prop
erly inform the public at large of the
loan stock as a medium for the in
vestment of the savings of the people.
No group of financial institutions in
the state can boast of a cleaner rec-
ord of stability than can our buillding

in these associations 'last year was

valuable under the present situation.
"The man who works for wages in

Price continued, "and now that he is
