PAGE 10 Lockhart Native Promotes Banking He is currently heading a successful fund raising drive for Stillman College in Druid City, is a member is the Board of Governors of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, as well as Indian Springs School at Helena, Alabama. LeMalstre last weekend be- came head of an association made up of 268 member banks having assets of four and one half biUion dollars and serv- i li ing virtually all Alabamians. R was the second time in four years that AIaBA members turned to a Tuscaloosan for association leadership. Frank Moody of Tuscaloosa First was state president in 1966. I.Malstre believes banking is one of the '*undiscovered fields of our times for youth seeking career opportunities." Banking salaries, he said, are now competitive with those iii ii in | il i I ',Where you find a progres- sive bank, there you will find a progressive community." George LeMaistre, recently elected president of the Ala- bama Bankers Association, holds this strong conviction.

This app- lies to blacks and women who make up a big percentage of bank employees. Alabama is on the verge of scoring a 'first' in that Mary George Jordan Waite, president of the Farmers and Merchants Bank of Centre, is scheduled to become AlaBA president in 1971. She will become the first woman state bank association president in the U.S. A native of Lockhart, LeMaistre holds the LL. B. degree from Alabama and since 1939 has been Adjunct Profe- ssor of Law at the U. of A. Farrah Law School. He teaches real estate transactions, da- mages, and practice court, all of this being in addition to his banking career. Prior to entering the banking business in 1960, he was for three decades a member of the law firm of LeMalstre, Cle- ments and Gewin. He is the au- thor of "Real Estate Hand- book", a law school textbook. This Alabamian who has de- voted his life and talents to two fields finds that "the law- yer is more intimately involved with individual problems while the banker is concerned with community growth." "Nothing makes a |itt e knowledge so dangerous as examination time." Your vote has never been so important I. BANKING REQUIRES THOUGHT, READING Well trained men and women who took on banking as a pro- fession requiring much thought, reading and solid dedication, will be much sought after now and in the future. C. Logan Taylor, President of the 1st State Bank of Oxford and Outgoing President of the Alabama Bankers Association, sounded this challenge in his final address at the 77th Annual Alabama Bankers ASsociation Convention here last weekend. Over 490 bankers attended. Incoming President, George LeMalstre, who heads City Nat- ional in Tuscaloosa, said those entering banking today would find salaries and opportunities fully competitive with other fields. Despite a decade nowofcom- puterization and mechanization, banking still is a person-to- person affair. It's up to bankers themselves to block restrictive legislation and pass their own bills, Ari- zona State Senator Somer H. White told the Conferees. This Harvard Business School grad, who left the bank- ers' ranks for the statehouse, urged the hankers to put their own men ,cth court'1.
