T HE BARTOW TRIBUNE
HIM CREDIT BANK
Officers Chosen And Mon
ey At Five*Per Cent In
At a meeting called by C. C. Pittman,
the temporary organization of a Nat
ional Farm Loan Association for Bar
tow county farmers, met last Tuesday
and permanently organized, elected of
ficers, adopting by-laws and selecting
a name for the association to be known
as Cartersville National Farm Loan
The following directors were elected
by the association: T. S. Hawkins, R.
A. Milner, J. C. Fink, W. D. Davidson
and W. W. Galaway and in turn the e
directors elected T. S. Hawkins, presi- j
dent; R. A. Milner, vice-president: L. i
W. McKelvy, W. M. Carlisle and W. W. i
Calaway, appraisers and C. C. Pittman
Out of the farmers present, fifteen
applied for loans through this associa
tion and since the time of meeting
several others have signed applica
tions for loans, bringing the total
amount applied for up to $35,000. Other
farmers desiring to borrow money
through this association will see Mr.
Pittman at once, as the appraisers eon
templatae visiting every applicant’s
farm in the next few days.
"When the appraisers have made
their reports, the federal government
will send an appraiser to inspect each
farm and confirm or reject the apprais
ment made by the local appraisers.
After government inspection is made
the granting of a charter is next in
order and the funds applied for will be
forthcoming soon thereafter.
It is now practically assured that
the interest rate on these loans will be
5 per cent per annum and it is being
advised by the Farm Loan Rank of
Columbia that the time of the loans
applied for shall be 56 years, since it
is figured that an additional 1 per cent
interest payment over this period, will
pay off the loan. In other words, by
paying 6 per cent interest on the
amount borrowed for 36 years, the
principal amount is paid off. The time
limit is from 5 to 40 years, with the
privilege of paying the whole amount
at any interest bearing date, after 5
years, and 36 years is suggested as a
standard period as it simplifies calcu
Under the old system of borrowing
money our farmers have been paying
8 per cent interest, beside an addi
tional amount to an agent for secur
ing their loans. Under the government
system a 6 per cent rate will not only
pay the interest, but will pay the prin
cipal also, and there are no commis
sions to be paid fn>- the securing of
the loan. Most of the work necessary
to the organization and continuation
of the Cartersville Association falls
open the secretary-treasurer, and it
seems tha L the source of his compen
sation will be in providing abstracts
ot title to the farms of the members
of the association, it being agreed by
all members present that every officer
should inter heartily into a plan of
strict economic co-operation, until the
associataion is thoroughly in opera
It is gratifying that Bartow county
is to have such an organization as this
and believed that it will introduce a
new financial system that will not only
bo of ine-timiable value to the farmer,
but will benefit every class of busi
ness that is touched by the farmers’
interest and prosperity.

CALLS FOR 1200 MEN.
The following telegram has been re
ceived at the U. S. Naval Recruiting
Station, 514 P. O. Building, Atlanta,
Ga., from the Naval Department:
“Thirty-eight thousand, five hundred
additional men are needed immediate
ly to fill Navy’s emergency comple
ment. A quota of twelve hundred has
been assigned to this station to be
supplied by April twentieth.”
The naval service offers great ad
vantages to any young man who enters
it in that he is fed and clothed, well
paid and given opiiortunities of travel
which will furnish him with the best
education obtainable. In these times
when our country needs the services
cf citizens upon its battleships and
other departments both .patriotism
and individual opportunity are emerg
ed in this cause by our government,
and it is hoped that on April 20th that
the twelve hundred men needed at the
Atlanta station will have been secured
and more than that- will offer their
services and that Bartow county will
come up with its traditional history in
such emergencies and repeat what it
lias done in times before when our
country calls for men

NEW CITY HALL
Will Be Ready For Occu
pancy With in F our
Within from four to six weeks time
Cartersville s new city hull will be a
completed structure and the contrac
tor, Mr. E. W. Smith, expects to be
able to permit occupancy of the build
ing by the first of May.
x lie bad weather has delayed the
ysv.iK on this building very materially
and even now as keeping the workmen
from lay r ing a concrete foundation for
a tile floor with which the building is
li. lie Burnished. The fixtures are pret
ty well in place and the interior pre
sents .a very attractive view even now
tc those passing through. The.doors
are being hung and moulding and
wainscoting put on, and with the erec
tion of a staircase from the first to
the second story and the tile floor laid,
the building would stand inspection
Commodious quarters are given each
department of the city government !
and these will be furnished in keeping
with the character of the building. On
the first floor the city clerk and treas
urer, of course, will have his office,
as will the mayor, fire department and
other officers to be designated. The
commissioners’ chamber in the second
story where the public meetings will
be held is an attractive room in the
front part of, the building. A railing
separates the commissioners them
selves from the spectators and public.
Seats will be arranged here so specta
tors and those having business to
bring before the regular meetings will
he comfortably accommodated.
The lighting fixtures throughout the
building are being installed and when
completed the entire structure finished
and furnished will cost approximately
$20,01)0. It will then be a building in
which the city can take pride and will
equal, if not excel, any building of like
character in any city of like size.
The contractors and workmen are
exercising every energy to make a
turn over job of the proposition within
the next five or six weeks and within
a weak’s time the debris about the
building will be moved so that the pub
lic can get a general view of the archi
tectural and general lines of the build
PEXALL STORES MAY BECOME
With an organization embracing
seven thousand stores throughout the
United States, the United Drug Com
pany, popularly known as the Rexall
Company, has tendered to Secretary
ci War Baker the use of these stores
throughout the United States as re
el uiting stations. These stores are lo
cated In 5,969 towns and cities and are
in every stat"' and territory of the
United States. It is, therefore, made
possible to reach immediately all of
these stores and arrange for the open
ing of enlistment bureaus therein.
If the government sees fit to accept
the proposal made, the Rexall store
here, conducted by Mr. M. F. Word,
would be a recruiting or enlistment
station, and those who contemplate
volunteering their services to the gov
ernment will very probably have an
opportunity to do so as soon as the
government finally acts upon the ten
der made by the United Drug Com
pany of their stores throughout the
The offer made by this great remedy
company is patriotic and generous,
and both with reference to its inten
tion and its actual usefulness will ren
der valuable service to the country in
that its organization is very extensive
and the stores well conducted and cen
trally located in each community.

DAVE VAUGHAN SUFFERS
Mr. Dave Vaughan met with a pecu
liar accident last Thursday from which
he suffered a broken leg and wrenched
hip. Mr. Vaughan had driven in a car
to Canton and was returning over a
somewhat rough road and down a
grade and at this particular time at a
point in the road upon the sides of
w'hich were embankments the car was
stripped, and a root of a tree or some
obstruction extending from the bank
struck Mr. Vaughan's leg at a time
when he was examining a broken gear
rod. In striking the obstruction his leg
v as thrown against the car and mad©
fast when the root passed on and
broke his leg.
Mr. Vaughan was brought to his
home and his injury attended by Dr.
W. B. Vaughan and Dr. R. E. Wilson,

progress and is as comfortable as
