Entered as second eta?g wii matter
May 10, 1910, at the poetoffice at
Farmville, North Carolina, tinder the
Act of March 3; 1878.
The following suggested slogans
were handed in by about a half doz
en people for the committee to select
one permanently for the town pf
Farmville. The committee decided on
one of these as being the best for
brevity and expression, but it was not
adopted by the mass meeting. It was
felt that not enough people had inter
ested themselves to try to make as
important a thing as a town slogan,
and so they decided to hold it open
a little while longer. The names of
those who handed these in are omit
"The Friendliest Town in North
Carolina." '

"The Best Little Town in North

(Continued frontpage ?tfe):'??|g
half the deposits. ' ' J
Banker: Exactly sp. TJhntfe pre
cisely what it means and when we dis
covered the fact we were as much'
surprised as you are- "We had. never
before analysed our a&oUnts and
never dreamed thai we.^re Uwing
much expense money on - account - of
the smallness of some of ouf^chbdc
Depositor. W?U,^t?v|o >u
propose to improve the banking con
ditions in the city ? / V
Banker: That is a Very logical ques
tion. We are going to .suggest to our
customers, none of whom we can
spare, that they do one of three things
"to help out this situation.
First: If a checking account is es
sential to them, increase their balance
to gfiO.OO, which wiH not cover the
cost to us but will be sufficiently near
to justify a trial, and then, refrain
from checking on that $50.00, but
leave it as a permanent - balance in
the bank so it will partially pay the
handling cost
Second: In the event that a chieek?
ing account is not particularly needed
by the depositor, we suggest that , he
transfer his balance to our savings de
partment This wili obviate drawing
checks against, it as he would bring
in his bank book and make withdraw
als of lump sums for paying his ex
penses. His balances then in the
savings department would be earning
him interest all the time, but would
always be available for withdrawal if
really needed. This method really en
courages thrift
Third: If neither of the above plans
suits the depositor and he finds it im
possible to maintain a balance of $50
so that his Account will pay its wav?
then we suggest Ho him that he pay
into the bank 50c a --month service
charge. That will compensate, . the
bank partly for the operating cost
and at the same time enable him to
continue" his checking account , as usu
al. .
Depositor: Your idea"is that 50c a
month would only partially cover the
? i' . .. ? il-r-v
cost? ?? ""?? ?*? v*vV.?*;*
Banker: That is corrupt If every
one of our checking accounts (now
under $50) paid us 60ea month, we
would still be short at leaat $2,000^P0
a year inc ollecting the dost:qf hand
ling their business but . we waive. $iat
Depositor: Do I understand, then,"
that you would rather not have small
accounts at all? . -
Banker: No, indeed. We do not
want to lose a single account we have,
small or large, if we can poSsibly have
them on. at least a cost basis We
nv rely want them to pay for the- cost
< bundling their o,wn business. Our
sory has been that the,small ac-,
counts would some day grow tf rbe
large ones and therefore we are^iWk
nig?to ? liauOlC tliwii at a. wut)
profit, with that end . in View.
Depositor: What you realty Want is
pay for keeping our books for us^is
that ft? -
Banker: Ypu have correctly stated
the facts. That is just
Hundreds of our customers have ,nhb'
other book than check books, which
we furnish ;them, and our chdck up
each month, by furnishing them their
monthly statement, h^pa tto to heeftj
a ttiriy accurate record off their YW
nances. It ought to be worth a 50c,
service charge to a depositor who js
not able to maintain a $50 balance.
Their cheeks give them a receipt for
all bills they have peto^afid enables
them to have a record of their trans
out and have none. Perhaps "in ? the
course of a few days* you "bqve anoth-,
er fair sized deposit-but yon immedi
ately check it, which in epd makes
you a low average.
Depositor: So I have really been an
expense to the f^^tofcyeaH/' Is
that it?
-: Banker:. a <act Slfou
see every alittl^money
want tp .make my account worth
somethjhfir to the bank, at least >orth
enough to pay the~cost of handling it
I* no iw should expect something
It shows you
. Banker: Tnatis fma.. It sno^j|yi
want tc live and let live; that while
you need and must have a checking
account you want us to get the cost
out- of ' your balance. We greatly pp
preciate your fair.treatment of your
bank. Your bank will always be fair
to you.
