In view of the recent adoption by

the following editorial on the subject
from the Christian Science Monitor is
"With the constant increase of ways
in which outgo may get the better of
income, intelligent plans to check pos
sible extravagance should be welcome
on every hand. The Massachusetts
state bank commissioner, Arthur B.
Chapln, is backed by statistics both in
Europe and America when he reepm
mends that the establishment of school
savings banks be authorized in this
commonwealth, and he may justly ask
legislative support. Bankers all over
the state apparently endorse the pro
ject, and there was no expressed oppo
sition to it at the recent hearing be
fore the committee on banks and bank
ing. This favorable attitude naturally
might have been expected, however,
for the school savings bank inculcates
in the child the habit of economy, and
what children learn in thoir school
days generally takes form in after

25,000 schools, and In 1902 the aggre

$3,000,000. Germany introduced the
system 12 years later, and found lt a
step in the right direction. The Unit
ed States did not profit quickly by
these lessons, but the system recently
has been gaining a foothold here. At
the beginning of 1910. statistics show,
there were school savings banks in 118
American cities, and $870,600 to the !
credit of the 203.000 depositors. A j
choice is possible between two plans

By the other system the children deal
