ONTRARY to a common opMon* seed wheat
does not "run out" It is true that it's wheat
will deteriorate and the yield become smaller
if left to its enemies which are inherent in the

action should be taken to establish more profitable
fanning methods. It is wise to estiMish the variety
best adapted to soil and climate.

BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE
ZEALOUS SLAVE I
Institution Not Letting Its Right
Hand Know What Its
Left Is Doing
"It ciinuot be that the right hand of
the Bank of Xorth Dakota knows what
its left hand is doiug.''. said F. K. Pack
ard. assistant attorney general, in a
statement to the press today. "On or
nbout the loth of February J. R. Wa
ttu-s, manager of the bank, issued a
now famous circular letter, in yliix.*ii
he deylar^d that the reason hLs hi»ti
tntiou had faded as a land, bank was
due to the fact that 'Bill Laager' did
not examine the abstracts of title so
that lie could make loans.. It now ai
Ijears .in the belated Bulletin No.
Series 1920. of the Bank of Xorth Da
kota, issued February 16, and signed
by F. W. Oathro. that lie defends the
failure of. the bank upon the ground
that the taxpayers' suit prevented the
sale of bonda, qnd hence, the bank
could not make ftirm loans except iu
a very limited way and must fall alto
.pgther unless the state wins this suit.
"In defending the farm loan depart
ment of the bank from an attack made
.upon it by Governor Norbeck of South
Dakota. Mr, Cathro says: 'He ignores
the fact that the sale of Xoi'th Dakota
real estate bonds is held up by litiga
tion *. The truth is that, in
spite of the delay in the /sale of the
North Dakota bonds .the bank is likely
to equal if not to exceed South Dako
ta's record *. The action now
pending in the Supreme Court of the
United ^States, questioning the consti
tutionality of the laws creating the
system of which the Bank of' North
Dakota is a part attacks that basis
fundamentally, and doubtless Is design
ed to put a stop to the,development of
State rural cralit systems
"Truly,' the industrial commission
must be obeying the biblical injunction,
and the right hand of its bank dotes not
know what its left hand is doing."
