When the directors of the C..n r-.ereial National bank yesterday he.-d thei meet ing to authorize the disburseine t of the usual dividend and talk ove, matters for the coming year, it was decided with large unanimity that there would be no change in the personnel of the man agement for the new year. The bank has enjoyed a year of large success and the directors took the position that the thing needed from the board was an j expression of confidence for good work , well performed. That meant that a i change which had been considered as I possible will not be made. R. I?. Noble, a vice president and assistant manager of the bank, had endeavored to induce the board to believe that he ought to be '■elieved in order that he might give lcrger attention to bis personal interests but Mr. Noble has given such splendid services to the institution that it was the unanimous demand of the directors he continue in his present position with a iittle extra time from the bank's affairs to give to his own business. He j will stay with the bank under the new j arrangement and it is forecasted this | will be very satisfactory news to the ■ stockholders. The Commercial National bank has : enjoyed a splendid growth duriug th • j past year, in the face of the fact it has been a year of war conditions. The bank j reached a point when its total resource-; touched $2,536,000 and it has been mov ing ahead steadily all the year. Its future policy was a matter that got attention i yesterday from the directors and it was ■proposed that a department be estab lished that will give attention to the de i velopment of interest in growing live ! stock. The directors, in common with ' banking men generally, regard livestock las one of the desiratle lines to be ' developed in the community and it is considered as one of the best assets ! that a creditor of the bank cm have, | The Commercial bank proposes to en courage wherever possible, the develop ment of the small herd among the farmers in this part of the state and it has already drawn to its fold a large number of customers as the result of that, policy.
