IN Its work of supervising the busi
ness of all Building and loan asso
ciations In Ohio, the state bureau
of building and loan associations, un
der the direction of James A. Devine,
comes as close to the people as any
other department of state govern
ment, yet does not take a cent from
the pockets of the tax payers for its
operating expenses, amounting to
1 35,000 a year. ,
Before Governor Cox, through legis
lative action, made this bureau a sep
arate department, about 127,000 of
this amount came from the taxpayers
through the general fund. This year,
however, it is self-sustaining, so far
as the taxpayers are concerned, as
the building and kan associations
of the state support it Under the
referring, to' loans on farms made by
building and loan associations. These
reports Indicate that Ohio It far lr
the lead of all other states of the
Union In the development of a rural
credit system. (
Devine asked the associations fo:
details as to whether they make loa i?
on farms, how many they have mad)
and for what amounts. Response '
show that in all but half a dozen coun
ties out of the eighty-eight in Ohfr"
there are building and loan assocla'
tlont that lend money on farms.
These associations hold more thau.
6,600 mortgage loans, representing in
money more than 112,000,000.
By his active Interest In the man
agement of building and loan associa
tions, by his recommendations to the
legislature of laws to ' protect depos
itors and his close supervision of the
associations through the state bureau..
' .m -m. Kill vieaAl 1a vat
provision - w u. ."v Governor Cox has accomplished a won
each association must par a fee or;
$20 with the filing of its annual re
port, which - thlt year wHl net the
Btate more than 113,000. In addition
to this, there Is another fee based on
the assets of the associations, which
will bring the total revenue up to
more than enough to pay all the oper
ating expenses of the bureau.
At the beginning of 1913 there were
649 building and loan associations in
Ohio, and tho year 1914 started , off
with (f ", an Increase of 16. The aver;
age anai al increase in assets is about
$12,00e,et-. the total assets last year
being $2tY00,000.
One of the most interesting and im
portant lteou In the reports is that
derful work in safeguarding the sav
ings of thousands of small depositors -especially
the farmers, who are buy"
ing homes. '
And all thlt It now dene without
taking one cent from the pockets of
the taxpayers for the maintenance of
the state bureau of building and loau
associations. This is made possible
by the splendid efforts of Governor
Cox, who is being commended'. not.
only by the thousands of Ohioens
who are receiving the benefits of-b.:.
thoughtfulness, but by state offic,a,!,':
and building and loan association offi
cials of other states, who recogniz
the progressiveness of the adalmistn-.;
tlon of Governor Cox.
