annual meeting of stockholders of the Corning State Savings Bank was held last Thursday Four members of the old board of directors Messrs E A Scholz F L LaRue O A Pease and C F Andrews were reelected while A B Turner was chosen in the same manner to succeed A F Okey and W II Clark to succeed H H LaRue A meeting of the board of directors was held immediately upon the adjourn ment of the stockholders and F L La Rue was elected president E A Scholz vice president and W HClarkcashier The retirement of A F Okey who has been president of the bank since its or ganixation in 1890 necessitated the changes noted Both Mr LaRue and Mr Clark have been connected with the bank for a number of years the for mer as cashier and the latter as assis tant and the management of the insti tution has been largely in their hands Consequently there is practically no change in the management which has been so satisfactory to both stockhol ders and to patrons The new men on the board of directors combine financial strength and experience and unques tioned integrity That the bank will continue to enjoy the success which has caused it to be regarded as one of the leading institutions
