THU ALLEN ADVOCATE J To the People of Allen and Vicinity A (hank QUcuiiian After Mr Bourland found it was not possible to continue his business in Allen The Funeral Home was listed for sale on a nation wide basis Approximately two months passed and a satisfactory buyer was not found at which time he decided to offer the Burial Association liability to Funeral Directors in this area and dismantle the rest of his business After a thorough discussion the Burial Association' liability was purchased and accepted by the Smith Funeral Home of Ada and the Hudson Funeral Home of Holdenville Several families have asked why they were not consulted as to which association they preferred The answer is that there just was not time Mr Bourland needed to be free immediately and insisted that we accept his liability at the earliest possible moment Had any other plan been followed families we could not contact within a very few days would have been without protection At the expiration of your dues paying period you "may transfer to either the Smith Funeral Home Burial Association or the Hudson Funeral Home Burial as you wish In the meantime you will have the protection of a strong association which will be serviced by a well known funeral home A few days ago we had the privilege of meeting with several of the leading business men of Allen After a long discussion they all agreed that the same reasons which Mr Bourland has for giving up his business reasons well known to all of us and over which none has control would not justify us to continue a funeral home in Allen We sincerely wish we could come to another conclusion Mr Bourland states he averages about ten ambulance calls per month We are sure each of you will agree it is not possible for us to keep men a car and an office open twenty-four hours a day on the basis of ten ambulance calls per month To help as much as possible we have offered as a gift to the City of Allen or to any civic organization an emergency ambulance with all of the revenue going to the accepting organization It is our suggestion the ambulance might be manned on a volunteer basis like the fire department or possibly by city employees It would take very little time to service ten calls per month and even less time if only emergency calls were mad While this offer is being considered either the Smith Funeral Home or the Hudson Funeral Home can have an ambulance in Allen within a very short time and we pledge you our best service When conditions improve we promise our serious consideration to opening a new funeral home in Allen In the meantime however our very best attention will be given all your needs We pledge our loyalty and will be grateful for the loyalty and friendship of you your family and your community Smith Funeral Home ADA OKLAHOMA 2is East Malt Ada Okla REPORT OF CONDITION OF FARMERS STATE BANK Of Allen in the State of Oklahoma at the close of business on Dec 31 1954 ASSETS Cash balances with other banks including reserve balances and cash items in process of collection $22458505 U S Government obligations direct and guaranteed 28334453 Obligations of States and political sub-divisions 11294688 Otber bonds 'notes and debentures bills cf exchange Loans and discounts (including 70017 overdrafts) 32005978 Furniture and fixtures ' 110449 TOTAL ASSETS 94701073 LIABILITIES Demand deposits of individuals partnerships and corporations 64613611 Time deposits of individuals partnerships gnd corps 4897159 Deposits of U S Government (including postal saving 2774186 Deposits of States and political sub-divisions 10863997 Deposits of banks 206515 Other deposits (certified and officers’ checks etc) - 1344215 TOTAL DEPOSITS 84699683 Other Liabilities 600000 TOTAL LIABILITIES (noMncluding subordinated Obligations shown below 852 99683 CAPITAL ACCOUNTS : Capital Surplus ’ll Undivided profits NAMES AINT THE SAME When Bruce Palmer departed from WKY-TV and went with KWTV for more money E K Gaylord decided to quit building a man up and have him take the much-publicised name and prestige to another station at higher pay i So WKY and WKYTV now own the names and use the new men as come along Grant Foster's real name is Jim Terrell Mack Rogers is really Frank McGhee Charles Bishop is Richard John and Bob Clark's real name is Morris Flourney Get the idea?
