The DREB has planned an in teresting social get-together for the group at the conclusion of the workshop clinic. Dempsey J. Travis, president of the United Mortgage Bank ers of America, described the up-coming session as “one c.' the most important planning meetings ever held insofar as it affects the future of Negro participation in the nation’s housing market.” Travis, who is also president of The Sivart Corporation, mortgage bankers and of the Travis Realty Company, born at 414 East 47th Street, Chicago, declared: “In the past it has been dif ficult to attract mortgage bank ing capital into the Negro mar ket. The organizations which could best interpret the need and the fantastic financial po tential of this specialized mar ket lacked organization, and hense were unable to raise the large sums of money needed to effectively service the market on short notice. This condition no longer exists. Right now there are mortgage banking organizations which comprise about one fourth of the membership of the United Mortgage Bankers of America who are channeling more than 200 million dollars in mortgage money into the Negro communities of the nation to day. This is money which form erly skirted these communities because the vehicles for intro ducing the money into the Ne gro market were lacking. “This sum is only a small por tion of what the figure will re present in the near future as these mortgage money convoy ing vehicles become larger and stronger and as the pace of in evitable urban renewal is step ped up. By far the bulk of the urban renewal projects still on the drawing boards are slated Dr. F. Patterson FormerTuskegee President Is Speaker Here Deposits $10,000 For UNCF With Federal State Mutual Savings & Loan Association Dr. F. D. Patterson, former President of Tuskegee Institute, a member of the Board of the Phelps-Stokes Fund, and Presi dent of the National Negro Business League was the guest speaker here last Friday night at a meeting at Jackson State College sponsored by the Fed eral State Mutual Savings and for the older, worn-out com munities in the nation’s largest cities which have characteristi cally become the abode of the bulk of those cities’ Negro resi dents.” OFFICERS President — Dempsey J.
