According to officials oi the Douglass Bank many of the depositors of the Binga Bank in face of all the bank closings were at last | willing to recognize the fact that The Douglass National Bank had withstood all the storms and was 1 still serving the community, and ! should have the wholehearted sup port of the people of thP southside Officials Pleased The Douglass Bank officials were gratified to see that the willingness of the people to cooperate was still strong in face of their losses. This return of confidence is thought by many to be the forerunner of great er things for the colored people in Chicago in that with this return of confidence in themselves and their institutions means that anything, no matter how large, can be at tempted in spite of the current de pression. Once again, said one Drominent business man. the far* is borne home to us that if the people of the southside nut their ten or twenty million dollars which os spread all over the city in the Doug lass National Bank there would be an institution which would then be capable of Giving the district all the aid it now neat's for its full and free commercial development. Such as sistance is not now forthcoming trom any other source. Offers Convenience And Service The fact that the Douglass Bank is located in the very heart of the colored district means that there is a natutral convenience which no other bank offers. Combined with this fact is the fact that it is offi cered and owner by colored people who know the needs of the commu nity and by experience should know the best manner In which to meet these needs. The confidence ex pressed by the former depositors of the Binga Bank who started new accounts at the Douglass expressed both willingness and a desire to reward service as well as merit while taking advantage of the conven ience. The continued indifference which many banks show colored depositors when approached for assistance ap , -ently for no other reason than the matter of color may be another reason for this swing to the Doug lass National, said one keen observ er on commercial affairs and is perhaps just the beginning of a new awakening among a people who have been kicked about just once too often.
