Flashback article - Jan., 1938
Cedar poles, stumping powders and knot hole news
In lieu of our 'Browsing the Archives' column, we're celebrating The Post's 70th birthday with a look back at our first issues. Today we browse the advertisements from two of our earliest editions in January 1938. Here are some of the ads that ran (recognize any names that grace our streets and landmarks?).
Clackamas County Bank Sees 27 Years of Service
Marking another milestone of successful banking, the Clackamas County Bank rounds out its 27th year of service to the community, January 31st. This financial institution was organized on the same date in 1911 with $5,000 in capital, half paid in, and with a deposit showing March 7th, of the same year, of $5,017.55, and has grown to a capitalization of $20,000 and deposits of $321,808.72 in 1938.
The Clackamas County Bank was organized by A.L. Deaton, who was its first president and the first cashier was N.A. Deaton. The organization passed into the hands of the present management ten years later and has been successfully operated by them since that time.
The bank enjoys many distinctions, one being and outstanding record during the bank holiday in 1932. This bank closed its doors only for the actual required time under the government order and reopened for routine business immediately after. With the exception of the holiday mentioned, the band has rendered uninterrupted service during its entire existence. The Clackamas County Bank is one of the outstanding independent banking institutions of the northwest and as it approaches its 27th birthday, friends of the bank from all over the section unite in extending hearty congratulations and best wishes for many more years of service to the entire community.
Present officers of the bank are; W.A. Proctor, president and chairman of the board of directors; E. Ault, vice president; Fred L. Proctor, cashier and secretary; and Cecil O. Duke, assistant cashier and director.
Here are some of the well-wishes from friendly neighbor businesses:
'May you enjoy twenty-seven years more in this community.' - R.S. Smith Motor Co.
'We are glad to be in a good town with a good bank … congratulations!' - Scales' Store
'Best wishes for the continued success of the Clackamas County Bank.' - Sandy Variety Store, Dorothy Coon
THERE IS MORE POWER IN EVERY STICK OF DUPONT STUMPING POWDERS
With explosives having the stick power of DuPont Stumping Powders, you are able to regulate the quantity of powder needed to blast your stumps at a lower cost per stump.
When you buy a DuPont Stumping Powder you get the most powder per dollar - you are going to remove more stumps at lower cost per shot. That's the service DuPont gives with each stick of DuPont Stumping Powders - made here in the Pacific Northwest to move its stumps quickly, easily and cheaply.
Look for DuPont on case and cartridge when you buy your stumping powders.

KNOT HOLE NEWS
Cece Bates Says: - I got one of those new-fangled electric razors for Christmas. I have had a few experiences with it that puzzle me. While shaving, I got my directions mixed looking in the mirror and lost one eyebrow. I became so excited I dropped the razor on the floor - before I could pick it up it shaved all the pattern off the rug. The dog thought it was a cat - before I could get them separated, the dog was as hairless as a boiled egg. Oh, well, I guess I can make out all right after a while.
