CAM ASIDE AS CITY OBSERVES CHRISTMAS DAY Routine Shuffled Aside In Recognition of HoH- day Expect to Open Doors Within Next Few Days, Official, Say The Chicago Heights Finance company, ah induxtriul loan corporation controlled by local men and established on a ba non-competitive with commercial banks, will open its dcors for bu ness within the next few days at the Alexander building, 1708 Ouk street. Operating under the National Wlmsett system, and yet controlled by representative business and pro tegsional men and manufacturers ot Chicago Heights, the new com puny is expected to play an impor- tant part In the financial life of the city. Organ liatlon has been under way for several months by H. W. Moore, one of the company's most able organizers, antl when the com- pany opens Its doors It will be pre- pared to launch into active opera- tion. Tho object of the Wimsctt nystera companies everywhere Is to provide a place where the dependable wage- earner may obtain a loan without exploitation, nt a rate slightly higher than that paid by the mer- chant or manufacturer at the com- mercial bank but much lower than that charged by tho so-called "loan shark." No wage assignments or collateral are exacted other than tho good name of the man seeking a loan and the endorsement ot two friends of equal reliability. Because of the fact that the new company will not accept deposits, It will not compete in any way with the commercial banks. It will 111) a long-felt want here In cover- Ing a field which ordinarily woud not be touched by the commercial banks. Another advantage of the Wim- sett company Is that It will enable merchants and professional men to liquidate frozen accounts by sup- plying money to creditors at a rea- sonable rate of interest. Llld I nit The local company will be the one hundred and thirty-third uiilt to be established under the national system. In its entire history in this country, tho Wlmsett system had not a single failure, end the last few have the na- tional organization grow more rapidly in .public favor than ever Mifore.
