Banker Explains Needs Of Small Industries “About two years ago,” J. Good lett Thornton, president of the Wilmington Savings and Trust company, told the members oi the Kiwanis club yesterday at their weekly luncheon and busi ness meeting at the Friendly Cafeteria, “a group of men got to gether with the idea of post-war planning for Wilmington. This group was known as Wilmington Associates and its main function was to get local business men thinking in terms of post-war planning.” Intelligent planning and the willingness to invest local capital could attract businesses here, Mr. Thornton stressed. He also' reveal ed that a contract for a building to house the plant of the France Neckwear company of New York, had been announced Tuesday by Industrial Properties, Inc., a group of Wilmington business men who have subscribed capital for construction of suitable ac comodations for industrial plants. The building, which is to cost a minimum of $60,000, will be rented to the company for 5 per cent of cost per year, plus taxes and in surance. Although this is a very nominal rental for the type of plant to be built, Mr. Thornton said that the object of the subscribers was not to get rich but to bring industries to Wilmington so that the com munity as a whole, could prosper. Seeing that Wilmington would be adequately supplied with hous ing facilities and high type labor, the group laid plans to utilize these factors to obtain new indus tries for the city which led to their incorporation as Industrial properties which has a capitaliza tion of $200,000, Mr. Thornton said. "Many smaller business plants located in the northern cities,” said the guest speaker, “want to move their plants to a less con gested area and with better cli matic conditions. Wilmington would be the ideal place for them to come. We hope to induce some of these firms to come here by presenting to them an attractive plant for their accommodation.” In conclusion, Mr. Thornton ex plained that many smaller busi nesses are unable to build their own plants due to need of liquid capital with which to extend credit and maintain inventories. E. H. Southerland, president, presided at the meeting, and Walker Taylor, Jr., was in charge of the program. About 50 members were present and two guests, Garland E. Mid yette, and E. C. Chamblee of Farmville. Congressman Suggests Britain Cede Bermuda WASHINGTON, Sept. 5. — (A5)— Rep. Bradley (D-Pa) proposed in the House today that Great Bri tain /ede Bermuda to the United States as a consideration for lend lease aid to Britain in wartime. He stressed that the United States now has a large base there, argued that island is of little val ue to Britain, and said Britain probably would look with favor on transferring it to the United States.
