meaning of Comptroller Williams's
report that the country's bank depos

dollars is clear and significant. Bank
deposits in the main move up and

other words, represent prodigious
borrowings by the industries and busi
nessess going to the banks to get the
money to do their work.
A fall in such loans, whether op

they don't need them any more or
compelled by the banks because they
must restrict credits, indicates a
slackening of activity in business and
industry which previously required

TRIBUTE TO THE ARMY MULE
He was not exalted
In his native laud,
He was never vaulted
To a high command.
Famed throughout our borders,
Humblest of his schooJ,
It is time that orders ,

Noise was not a stranger
To his simple way,
Yet in time of danger
Men could hush his bray.
Stubborn but forget it,

For he never let it

"What was the object of the previous
campaign?" To save as many as pos

is just why there is another campaign
now; because so many arc still alive,
due to vour magnificent charity, and
we cannot lot them starve now, after
having saved them last year and for
three years previous.

WHITE COLLAR MEN.
The white collar men
Who push at a pen
And 'click the typewriter keys
Have come to the fore
With a one hundred score
In perilous times like these.
They're a trifle raw,
Some might pick a flaw
In the way they shovel coal,
Or throw a switch,
Or give brakes to a twitch;
But somehow they reach the goal.
So wheels turn, a few,
And some cars get through,
And we don't stand still or quit;
And the milk and the mail
Some way don't fail
It's the work of men of grit.
All the honors, then,

Faithful zealous little buddy,
You were always close to me,
Clpse in every hour of danger
As we fought across the sea.
You were always my companion
In the watches of the night,
In the cold mud in the trenches,
In the perils of the fight.
When in No-Man's Land I ventured,
And I prayed to Heaven to guide,
When Ihe star shells burst above us,
You were always, at my side.
When I lay chilled and unsheltered,
In the cold and soaking rain,
You were with me, always busy,
Making me forget my pain.
For you never left me lonely,
Always was your presence near;
And I never will forget you,
