habits of thrift, thereby enabling
them to accumulate funds to provide
for various purposes. Its activities
during that period has resulted in the
acquisition by 1,394 members of
homes, on loans aggregating $2,036,
400.00. It has paid to members for
withdrawals, matured stock and divi
dends the sum of $1,682,198.00. It of
