C. Bates told our colored community that they were being offered more than the law stipulated was necessary.

"You don't want to do that. No one is indispensable, but no institution should kick out all its top officers at once ... you wouldn't do it in your business and in, this case it wouldn't serve the best interests of the taxpayers." Banks was introduced by Rotarian Charles B. Gilliland.
