Realty Expert Talks Before Y.
M. C. A. Class-Discusses
In discussing the question of
Building and Loan Associations be
fore the real estate class of the Y.
M. C. A. this week, C. Clinton James.
President of the local council of
Building and Loan Associations,
sketch the history of such insti
tuttons in this country.
He stated that the first building
association was founded In Frank
ford. Pa., In 1881. During the sub
sequent years of wonderful develop
ment and progress that have tome
to Institutions founded on this prin
cipal, the fundamental Ideas of the
original association are today the es
sential features that charaterize the
entire system throughout the coun
try, he said. There was a the
during the development of these or
ganizations when one of their prin
ciz1al activities was the. actual con
struction of homes which were sold
to their members. It was shortly
seen, however, that this feature of
the work which was highly specu
lative, was of doubtful benefit and
roost organisatigns have ceased-to
operate in this field and in some
States are prohibited from so doing
He decland the basic principle of
the building association idea is to
serve two classes of members: First,
the saving class, and second, the
borrowing class. In Its service to
the first class it has been of in
estimable value in developing per
manent habits of thrift for the rea
son that it has offered a facility to
the wage-earner whereby be can
systematically save some portion of
his wages in a safe and secure man
ner and at the same time receive a
very substantial interest return. This
applies In the same measure to the
borrower, who, after being accus
tomed to paying regular stated
amounts for a number of years suf
ficient to liquidate his mortgage,
finds that after he is free of debt
that the saving proposition has be
come a habit in his life and he
merely continues his regular pay
ments, thereby accumulating a say
inge fund on which he receives a
substantial interest return.
Home ownership, Mr. James stat
ed, Is one of the primary natural in
stincts of every real man and wom
an. The Building Association is or
ganized to gratify that desire, and
for that reason makes a strong ap
peal to all humanity. While build.
ing and loan associations have not.
generally speaking, adopted modern
methods of increasing business, they
hays grown to an extent little known
to the average layman. According
to statistics there are in the United
States about 9,000 assooiations with
a total membership of approximate.
ly five million and assets of $2,500.
000,000. Referring to the District of
Columbia, the twenty-two local asso.
ciations have a membership of almost
50,000 with assets of approximately
thirty-three million dollars. Accord
ing to the per capita investment
chart Issued by the Department of
Commerce the Distfict of Columbia
ranks third with a per capita of

have been thoroughly improved by
the Government. Speaking of the
