To Raise Money
The Veterans of Foreign Wars
of Noble county have launched
their third drive to obtain wheel
chairs for the free use of resi
dents of this county.
The first two drives sponsored

chairs and eight pairs of crutches.
All the chairs and crutches are
in use, scattered thruout the coun
ty, according to Commander Don
Parrish.
Don Piatt, chairman of the cur
rent drive, said that no donations
will be accepted on this drive.
The equipment will be paid for
by the commissions realized from
the sale of well-known maga
zines, books, etc. Any money the
public spends for the benefit of
the drive will also benefit the
spender.
A representative from VFW
Post 4721 will call at the homes

in detail. Then, he will display

Caldwell B. & Loan Go.
Cuiiwnued from Page One
to the organization of The Cald
well Building & Loan Company.
The prime mover in the proposed
organization was Oliver T. Wilde,
a comparatively young man who
came from Wheeling, W. Va., to
this place and engaged in hard
ware merchandising, his partner
being Jonathan F. Knouff.
At that time there was only one
financial institution in Noble
county, that of The Noble County
National bank.
After a prolonged effort, Mr.
Wilde and his helpers succeeded
in securing a sufficient number
of persons to subscribe for
enough stock, at $100 per share,
payable at twenty-five cents per
share per week until maturity.
The company was organized
tor the purpose of raising money
to be loaned among its members
and depositors in buying farms,
lots, erecting or purchasing build
ings, repairing houses and other
purposes, all loans being made on
first mortgage on real estate.
Incorporated in 1885
The company was incorporated
under Ohio laws on February 13,
1885, by W. D. Guilbert, W. H.
Cooley, Stephen Mills, sr., James
A. McCoy, Oliver T. Wilde, and
A. S. (Taylor) Bivens. In the
beginning the company's capital
stock was fixed at $100,000. To
day the authorized capital stock
of the company is $5,000,000.00,
and the institution, according to
the statement published Decem
ber 31, 1052, is in a stable and
flourishing financial condition.
The company began business
on March 7, 1885, with headquar
ters in County Auditor W. D.
Guilbert's office on the northeast
corner of the first floor of the old
court house where dues gmount
ing to $115.50 were received from
the 107 shareholders at that time.
Among them was Jess S. Har
ris, who has ever since been con
nected with the institution, and
is the only survivor of the entire
107. At that time, Wallace H.
Cooley was president of the com
pany, Oliver T. Wilde, the secre
tary, and Mr. Guilbert, the treas
urer. Business continued to be
transacted there until rooms were
secured over what is now the
Home restaurant.
Purchased Building
These rooms were occupied un
til the company purchased the
building now occupied by Scha
fer's Coffee Shpp on the north
side of the square where its busi
ness was conducted until in No
vember, 1930, when the company
purchased the property owned by
the former Noble County Nation
al bank, and at once moved
thereto and which it how occu
pies.
The office of the company is
in charge of the president, Paul
M. Clark, and the secretary, John
C. Groves. The office is adequate
ly equipped with the latest im
proved laboi-saving devices, in
cluding a Burroughs sensimafic
posting machine.
Official Hoard
The members of the present
board of directors are Common
PI eas Judge W. Vernon Archer,
Paul M. Clark, E. M. Farley, Jess
S. Harris, John C. Groves, H. C.
Jordan, and Robert E. Lorenz.
The officers are: Jess S. Harris,
chairman Paul M. Clark, presi
dent W. V. Archer, vice presi
dent John C. Groves, secretary
and treasurer, and Fred F. Fox,
attorney.
Past Officers
Shortly after completing four
years of service as treasurer of
Noble county, John Wilbur Drake
succeeded A. C. Cooper as secre
tary of this company and filled,
most creditably, the position for
over 30 years, or until his health
became impaired. He resigned
and was succeeded by Paul
Clark as president.
Mr. Drake served several years
as member of the board of direc
tors and also as president of the
company. During his connection
with the company, Mr. Drake was
regarded as one of the institu
tion's mainstays and was held in
the highest esteem and respect of
the entire community.
Courtly Home
Demonstration News
It is it pleasure to report that
29 women represented 17 groups
at our home demonstration coun
cil meeting last week. This is
very good representation from
the 20 groups in the county. They
began work on an important
item of busines. Right now is the
time of the year when we begin
planning for the adult season of
work for the 1953-54 year. Be
lieve me—that's a tough job to
think that far ahead sometimes
what we feel is real important at
the present isn't so important by
the time we get around to it! The
councillors' did a fine job of
work on this item.
After much discussion we ar
rived at basic problems to be
listed on the check sheet. A
check sheet will be made up in
the next week or so, and will be
mailed to all homemakers on our
mailing list. Here's your chance
to say a word regarding what you
wish to have taught in the com
ing season. Sometimes we won
der why we have to do "such an
such" a project. This in part is
because you have failed to check
the check sheet and send it back
to the office and state your wish.
This program is to be a pro
gram for the homemakers of No
ble county, and if it is such it
should be decided by all of. the
homemakers. We attempt to do
this—will you help us out and
fill in the check sheet, and return
it to the office? Thanks!
Achievement Day
Plans were made fof Achieve
ment Day which will be held Apr.
13. Committees were also ap
pointed.
Lampshade Project
We I inched our lampshade
training last Friday at the home
of Mrs. Ethel Smith. Several of
the lampshades were completed
and then leaders are all ready to
show the rest of you how to coyer
the shade. Thanks. Mrs. Smith,
for using your home.
Keithtown Meeting
The lesson "Better Home Light
ing" was taught at Keithtown last
week with 10 present.
Sportsmanship
This coming week finds every
one interested in the tournaments
at Caldwell. There will have to
be some losers—but they don't
have to be losers in sportsman
ship! Sometimes winners are
even losers in this field! Any
way, let's try to keep our heads
about the sportsmanship angle—
teams, and cheering section alike.
I always like to feel that basket
ball is' an athletic venture, how
ever if we forget to be sports
about it, we have lost the real
value of the game! I'm with all
of the teams but I am sure I will
be with the team and fans who
are good sports.

Measure the wonderful new Pontiac for size, beauty and
performance against the finest and costliest cars.
Pontiac is big —with its new 122-inch wheelbase and roomy,
comfortable bodies.
Pontiac is beautiful—easily the most distinctive car on the
road—with luxurious color-matched interiors.
With Pontiac's famous Dual-Range power train* you get
more power than you'll probably ever need—with a distinct
saving in gasoline.
Hut most remarkable is Pontiac's price tag—just a shade
above the lowest—and its wonderful reputation for de
pendability, economy and high re-sale value.
Come in and see for yourself that Pontiac offers much more
of everything—except price!
