hospitality" was fully exemplified

years that the national meeting was
held in New Orelans.
"Louisiana was a pioneer in de
velopment of building and loan as
sociations," said Mr. Fitzmorris. "A
newspaper editor, Thomas G. Rapier,

associations with 80,000 members
and .assets of $46,000,000 and ranks

tivities. "'How highly such activities arc
esteemed is shown by the fact that
in 1914 the voters of the state
adopted a constitutional amendment
exempting associations and the hold

This exemption i based on the prin
