The 'directors wanted to buil>' <
their new home last year. Then !
rapid growth demanded larger i
quarters, hut when they met to I
consider the building of a great t
hank they decided the merchants <
oi Appalachia needed every cent >
they could gel during the trying i
times of the depression and their
consideration came tirs|. To build
meant that this money would not ?
be available for deserving busi- :
ness men whose credit was uh- !
questionable, and who needed it '
sorely. Then came the decision '
to put off building until times be- 1
came more normal. This tlccis- 1
ion brought fclief to many who '
otherwise might have found it im- ;
