Fred Yillelt Sr.
Sees Bright Spot
In Duplin County
Wallace, May 26 The eyes of the
home finance industry of North
Carolina and the South " are on
Eastern North Carolina to watch
the development at Wallace and
Jacksonville of a program to bring
the savings and loan business clos
er to the people it can serve, Fred
erick Willetts, Sr., of Wilmington,
said here this week.
Willetts is president of the Co
operative Savings and Loan Asso
ciation which was established in
Wilmington in 1898. The Cooper
ative opens its complete and local
ly operated office at Wallace Fri
day afternoon. May 28. The Asso
ciation established a similar office
at Jacksonville last February.
"We in the Cooperative Associa
tion have lpng felt that saving
money and borrowing money, espe
cially for home building and im
provement, is a distinctly personal
undertaking," Willetts said. "Like
government, financial service
should be as close to the people as
The Cooperative president said
that two years of actual planning
had followed the decision to estab
lish an office to serve Duplin and
Pender County residents. The new
building at 205 East Main Street in
Wallace was only a small part of
the overall preparation, he added.
"Our Association is the first sav
ings and loan institution in either
North or South Carolina to expand
Its facilities to establish independ
ent offices within its territory. It
will mark a decided new trend,
we believe, in the savings and Joan
field , in this part of the country,"
Mr. Willetts declared.
The Cooperative president recalls
striking changes in home finance
in North Carolina during the past
five decades that his association
has been In operation. Outlining
the history of the Cooperative, Mr.
Willetts said:
"The Cooperative Savings and
Loan Association of Wilmington,
N. C, was organized in the year
1898 by Mr. Thomas H. Wright,
prominent Wilmington buainessraaivfHill, leeet Mrfc'W. B.-Clifton, 1959;
and opened for business in March
of that year as a mutual building
and loan association. Mr. Wright
served as secretary and manager
until 1933 at which time Mr. Fred
erick Willetts, the present president
and manager, succeeded him. In
53 years of operation the Cooper
ative has had only two managers,
and the unique record of never
having had a loss.
"Some 50 years ago the orthodox
banker did not look with favor on
mortgage loans, and the few such
loans that were made were pay
able In a lump sum on a specified
date usually within a year after
the loan was made. There were
many -families in Wilmington and
the outlying suburbs who did not
have the cash to buy a home, and
there were practically no credit fa
cilities available to them. A long
term loan payable in moderate in
stallments over a period of years
was unheard and unthought of.
Such loans were badly needed, and
the Cooperative was organized for
the purpose of offering this facility
to the people of Wilmington and
the surrounding neighborhood.
"At the time of the organization
of the Cooperative, loans were made
on the old serial plan with an an
ticipated but uncertain date of ma
turity, and many people still owed
considerable amounts in taxes and
fire insurance premiums after the
loan was paid. Today, however, we
have in operation the most stream
lined type loan known as the Di
rect Reduction Plan, payable over
a period up to 20 years of so much
per month, which includes prin
cipal, interest, taxes and insurance,
hence eliminating the possibility of
a prospective home owner losing
his property because of failure to
pay add valorem taxes, or less by
fire because of an unpaid fire In
surance premium. This type loan
is much cheaper for the borrower
because as the principal reduces,
the interest reduces also; interest
is paid only en the balance owed.
"The Cooperative has over the
years grown to the point where
during the year. 1950 over two mil
lion dollars was loaned to the peo
ple of this locality for the purpose
of purchasing,: building or remod
eling their homes. ' This lending
capacity, of course, helps in many
other ways than just that of spon
soring home ownership; it affords
work for many, plus adding great
ly to the buying power of the com
munity. We feel proud of the fact
that we are in an Industry that af
fords us the pleasure of aiding our

Suggested Program
For Poultry
'-: e
Our poultry disease workers and
the State Vetrinarian discourage the
widespread use of live virus vac
cines. However, if farmers are go
ing to immunize their birds against
Fowl Pox, Bronchitis and Newcas
tle disease, it is best that maximum
caution be exercised and that the
vaccines used be limited by certain
conditions and or programs of dis
ease control.
1. Read the directions of the man
ufacturer carefully. Some vaccines
are administered in the eye or in
the nose (intranasal), some intram
uscular, and some in the web of
the wing. The improper adminltra-
tion of vaccines may result in heavy
losses. '
2. Vaccinate only healthy flocks.
3. Limit use of live virus vaccines
to areas where outbreaks of xthe
disease have occurred or where
there is a strong possibility of an
outbreak occurring.
4. Administer vaccines separate
ly. 5. Use only the attenuated strain
of Bronchitis vaccine, regular Fowl
Pox vaccine, and killed virus New
castle vaccine.
6. Check on expiration date of all
vaccines. Follow directions for stor
ing. Use vaccine as soon as possible
after you prepare it Properly des
troy all left-over vaccines.
7. You should always remember
that where live virus vaccines are
being used you are working with
the disease agent Carelessness can
result in an actual outbreak of the
disease on the farm Concerned or
on a neighboring farm. r
. The regular Fowl Pox vaccine
may be administered when the
young birds are carried to range
(8 - 12 weeks of age). Infectious
bronchitis vaccine may be used
when pullets are about 18 weeks
old and Newcastle disease .killed
virus vaccine may be administered
when pullets are- placed in laying
house (20 24 weeks of age). This
flan makes It necessary to catch
irds only once while they are on
range. . w s i
