Spontaneous singing o f every
kind in America is "gone for
good" says an editorial in the
Musical Courier. "Explain it as
you will, the fact is the fact.
. Vc Americans have ceased to
sing or so at least it seems.
Jacques Verne a French captain
of industry claims increased effi
ciency from workmen who sing
while laboring. Having tested
this in the building of roads and
bridges', Mr. Verne calls the re
sults amazing and is anxious to
revive the times when every work
men sang at his bench.
The question of Banking and
Currency is now an important one
which still faces the nation.
Among those who have taken
part in the pros and cons of the
matter before the Senate Commi
ttee, none had so marked an
effect on the hearers as Mr. Frank
Vanderlip, president of the Nation
al City Bank of New York. ,
Mr. Vanderlip firmly maintains
the Glass Owen Bill and agrees
with President Wilson on one
That the central controlling
and supervising body, in an Ame
rican system for regulating cur
rency a n d banking ought to he
It has already been shown to be
iiitirelv fallicious and unworka
ble to allow one private interest to
select members of a public board.
Mr, Vanderlip demonstrated that
the President of the United States
must be trusted to name the mem
bers of the governing body. In
stead of a scries of regional re
serve banks, coming under the su
pervision of a federal board at Wa
shington, M r. Vanderlip would
have a central bank, with as many
branches and agencies in different
parts of the country.
Mr. G 1 a s s, chairman of the
House Committee had taken the
ground from the beginning that
the Democratic Congress would i
be generous by its own explicit!
party platform, which favors cur-''
rency reform but opposes the plan
of a central bank. The Vanderlip
plan meets the objections of thost 1
who do not w i s h the country's
money svstem to be controlled by
bankers or private financiers
The Glass plan is a very ingeni
ous'oue which provides the nation
with a definite national system,
whereas at present we have none.
The Vanderlip plan is generally
conceded the more mature, logical
and permanent oi the two.
From the point of view of states
man ship, it will be remembered
that the Glass bill had already
passed the House of Representa
tives and tint some mortificitions,
which would probably improve it,
without weakening it, the bill had
good prospects of passing the Se
It has not seemed possible at any
time during the present Congress,
to impress the idea of n central
bank even though the Vanderlip
bank would be a very different one
from that which was proposed un
der the Aldrich plan. If the Glass
Owen Bill with certain amend
ments should become law it would
mark a great stride in t li e right
Future legislation based upon
experience, could develop the
system further without undoing
or reversing the essential parts ot
what has been accomplished.
The regional banks could by de
grecS' assume t li e character olf
branches of a central institution
and the federal reserve board at
Washington could be given more
power until i t s members found
themselves in effect the directors
of a great central fiscal agency for
the government, a reserve center
tor me ordinary banks, anil an
elastic system of cuirencv capable
of meeting all emergencies.
'The Democrats h a v e under
taken to give the country a cer
tain . measure of currency reform
without creating a central bank.
The bankers had aheady admitted
the feasibility of this scheme but
wanted to appoint at least some of
the members of the central board
The advantages of a central insti-
t u t i o n directly controlling its
branches has been very ably paint
ed out by Mr. Vanderlip.
The discussions recently held
in Congress upon this subject,
have brought out a great deal of
the finer points involved in bank
ing' and monetary science. The
studv of this branch has necessa
rily been deep and protracted to
all concerned in the currency le
gislation and if the bill is passed
in January the nation may hope
to see one fairly acceptable to the
entire business community -i n d
one that will do credit to the de
termined efforts of Presidant Wil
