(II Is Assured Thanks to the Progressive Spirit of a United Community! This unity of spirit and accomplishment has been evidenced during the past year in many ways. Government officials, business men and private citizens have joined forces in a splendid display of cooperation, dedicated to the development of a bigger and better community. Austin enjoys a strategic location for increased future traffic over the new Interstate Highway system. Its Business Development Corporation is constantly making contacts with the object of inducing new business to locate in Austin. The Planning Commission is hard at work preparing specifications for the future growth of the city looking toward improving the health and welfare of the community. Scheduled transportation by air will soon be a reality for the people of this area. Congenial rural-urban relations are of utmost importance in community development, and the farmers and business men have displayed this mutual interest on many occasions. Many new enterprises have been established in Austin within the past year and collectively they constitute a growing factor in the community. Keeping pace with Austin is the First National Bank whose facilities have been expanded in many ways to provide for better banking service to the people of the Austin area. The First National Bonk, its officers and staff, pledge their collective efforts to assist the continuing march of progress toward making Austin a bigger and better community in which to live.
