DISTRICT NO. 6-ATLANTA.

M. B. WELLBORN, Chairman and Federal Reserve Agent.

INTRODUCTION.

The year 1918 has been the most momentous in the financial history of this district. Sudden demands occasioned by war conditions brought about rapid changes in financial and commercial activities. The financing of Government requirements and the war-savings campaigns brought the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta to the front in such a way that even that portion of the general public not actively engaged in business now fully realizes the worth of the Federal Reserve system.

FINANCIAL RESULTS OF OPERATION.

Schedule 1 shows comparative statements of the earnings and expenses for 1917 and 1918. The gross earnings in 1918 increased 323 per cent over the earnings for 1917, while the expenses of operation increased 159 per cent. This includes the expenses of the Birmingham and Jacksonville branches since their establishment on August 1, 1918. The total expenses, which, in addition to the cost of operation, include the cost of Federal Reserve notes, furniture and equipment, and depreciation of banking premises, increased 152 per cent, while the net earnings for 1918 were 474 per cent greater than in 1917.

Dividends for 1918 were $182,472.68, as compared with $145,465.61 for 1917. The annual rate of net earnings on the paid-in capital stock was 11.08 per cent and 54.07 per cent for 1917 and 1918, respectively.
