The too, the association has ample funds to lend on first mortgages on homes in Hope, on the popular direct reduction plan, and it invites applications fur loans for Ihe purchase, construction, remodeling and repair of residences. The directors of the association have made plans for a campaign to better inform the citizens of Hope of Ihe facilities available to them, and I am confident that through proper publicity the association can be of much more service in furthering the growth and progress of the city."
