Banker Dawes Forsees a Banking
g~ Monopoly
Henry M. Dawes, brother of Ambassador Charles
Dawes of upside down pipe fame, foresees a monopol
istic control of banking In the United States. He is a
former comptroller of currency and reputed to be an
eminent financier. Addressing a conference of busi
ness men In Wisconsin, be said:
"No plan has been devised by which chain banking
can be stopped after it becomes a menace. Its ulti
mate result will be the substitution of centralized
and. I fear, eventually monopolistic control of bank
ing as contrasted with the present system of local In
dependent nationally coordinated."
He predicted the Independent banks would not sur- '
vlve the competition of the chain and explained that
the question of chain banking is correlated to the i
government temperament and extent of the United
He further said that centralized groups made for
safety and efficiency “will not stand up under an
alysis,’' as a comparison of the chain bank and the
chain store cannot be made ' because one deals with
commodities and the other with credit.”
In the long ago Hickory Jackson had the battle of
his civic life with old Nicholas Biddle, the Mussolini
of the bankers and the banking system of the Jack
sonian period. Old Hickory won his battle.
Perhaps if the Dawes menaoe appears and seeks
control, another Hickory Jackson will come to the
surface, and there will be another battle royal for the
control of currency and credit.
Now is the time for a Texas candidate, gifted with
a wild imagination and a glib tongue, to turn loose a
new issue. •

A Count of Waco and Suburbs
Revised census figures for Waco and its suburbs
Show a population of 58.971, with approximately ”6903
of these Just outside the corporate limits.” Dallas
should annex Its suburbs for the next count. San
Antonio should do likewise. All Texas cities should
edoDt- the plan. Men and women who eam their
UiAftood within the boundary lines of a city and live
on The fringe of the city should be willing to do their
part for the city when the censustakers make the
rounds. Census announcements thus far show a vast
army of Americans Just without the pale of the Amer
ican cities of all classes. Suburbanites should be
counted as cityltes—even If it is necessary to annex
an entire county.
Mexico City in the Million Class
Mexico City proper has a population of 968.443. and
the federal district population was given as 1,112,000.
This count was taken in a single day, and it is an
nounced that women far outnumber the men, there
being 535.000 women and 433.000 men within the city
proper. Pres. Rubio is not a noise maker. He is not
a spotlight seeker. He is an Intense worker, and
Americans who have visited Mexico in the spring
months of this year predict that under his wise guid
ance stability of government and prosperity and
peace will be the achievements of his reign.
The Tragedy of the Mothers
The tragedy of the mother who loses her son in war
almost goes beyond the power of words to express.
An Ohio war mother, visiting France with the
others who are going overseas to see their sons*
graves, aroused the pity of crowds at the Paris rail
road terminal. She was in a mental date. Her mind
was blank. She could not tell where she was. Her
memory has been lost, and doctors are hoping that
the sight of her son's grave will restore It to her.
Her condition speaks volumes about the tragedy of
war. But there Is a footnote to the story that tells
even more. A French war mother, seeing her, came
forward to greet her, noticed her condition and turn
ed away, murmuring, "Why can’t I be like that?"
What could express more terribly the suffering that
war brings to mothers?
Henry Ford’s Come-Back
The am&zin manner In which Henry Ford has re
gained the market that he lost in the summer of
1027, when he discontinued production of his famous
old Model T. is strikingly shown in figures presented
by the Business Conditions Weekly of the Alexander
Hamilton Institute.
During the first quarter of 1930 Ford suffered lets
severely from the current business depression than
most other automobile makers. His output in the
first three months of the year was 400,000 cars, a
decline of 20 per cent from last year’s production.
But the total output of all American auto factories
during the same three months was 1,045,000, a decline
of 32 per cent from the 1929 figure. Ford’s production
during that period was 38 per cent of all cars made,
as compared with 32 per cent in the first quarter of
When Model T went on the scrap heap there were
many who predicted Ford would never regain his old
pre-eminence. Evidently he has regained It with a
bang. He seems to be prepared to be the dominant
automobile man for a long time to come.

Stewardship of Service

Text: Matt. 25:14-30
For the kingdom of neaven is as
a man traveling into a far country,
who called h.s own servants, and
covered unto them his goods.
And unto one he gave five talents,
to another two, aad to another one;
to every man according to his sev
eral ability; and straightway took
his journey.
Then he that had received the
five talents went and traded with
the same, and made them other
five talents.
And likewise he that had received
twc he also gained other two.
But he that had received one
went and digged in the earth, and
hid his lord s money.
After a long time the lord of
those servants cometh, and reck
oveth with them.
And so he that had received five
talents came and brought other
five talents, saying. Lord, thou
deliverdst unto me five talents:
behold. I have gained beside them
f.ve talents more.
His lord said unto him. Well done,
thou good and faithful servant:
thou hast b*en faithful over a few
things, I will make thee ruler over
many things: enter thou into the
joy of thv lord.
He also that had received two
talents came and said. Lord, thou
dellveredst unto me two talents:
behold. I h«ve trained two other
U’ents beside them.
His lord said unto him. Well
Editor of The Congregationalist
The genera! lesson title for this
iesson. “A Contrast Between Faith
fulness and Slothfuiness," is some
what more descriptive, though
neither title quite brings out the
full significance of the lesson
which has really to do with the
real sense of value and its applica
tion to life.
The lesson is one of those strik
ing manifestations of common
sense in which Jesus attacks the
greatest problems of life and con
duct from the siandooint of life's
simplest principles. There Is. also,
in the lesson the emphasis upon the
fact so commonly emphasized in
'tie teaching of Jesas that the laws
of the spiritual world are not so
unlike the laws of the pyhsical
and material world.
Calls for Action
The Ideal life in the conception
of Jesus is not a life of mere good
Intentions, of futile dreaming, no
matter how rich and fine the
dreams may be; the ideal life Is
found, rather, in a true and real
investment of all that one is and
of all that one has. It Is the di
rection of life that determines its
destinity, or, as we should put it
in a terse phrase of today, it is
character that counts. If a man
ha* a great treasure and allows
that treasure to lie neglected,
neither In the materia! world nor
in the spiritual world can the
treasure be of much use to himself
or to anybody else.
There is no glory that attaches
to the timidity cf doing nothing,
even on the assumption that If
one does nothing he can do no
wrong. Life In its highest aspect
is a matter of adventure and com
mitment. If we are not willing to
assume risks, there can be no glory
of result.
All this is expressed in the form
of a parable, which concerns a man
of substance going into another
country entrusting his goods to his
servants to make the best use of
them possible. According to their
several abilities he proportioned
the responsibility, giving to one five
talents, to another two. and to an
other one. The story as it proceeds
is an interesting reflection of life.
The man with the five talents
doubled Ids capital, so also the
man of two talents: but the man
of one talent, careful lest he
m*ght lose it. hid it awav for safe
keeping. On the return of the
master, the servants who had re
ceived respectively five talents and
two talents rained the approval of
their lord. But the man who had
hidden away the one talent was
rebuked as wicked and slothful be
cause In his anxietv he had not
taken proper care even that that
one talent should produce Its proper
Of course the parable is not en
tlrelv typical of life. Like mu^h
of the teachine of Jesus it is di
rected toward the drivinsr home of
ore part^ular truth and the rebuk
ing of the narrowness and weak
ness of one phase of life. In actual
life It is sometimes the five-talent
done, good and faithful servant;
thou hast been faithful over a few
things, I wii make thee ruler over
many things, enter thou Into the
:ov of thy lora.
Then he which had received the
one talent came and said, Lord,
I knew thee that thou art a hard
man, reaping where thou hast not
sown, and gathering where thou
nast not strewed:
And I war afraid, and went and
hid thy talent In the earth: lo,
mere thou hast that is thine.
His lord answered and said unto
h:m. Thou wicked and slothful
servant thou knewest that I reap
where I sowed not. and gather
where I have not strewed:
Thou ouehtest therefore to have
nut my money to the exchangers.!
and then at mv coming I should
have received mine own with usurv.
Take therefore the talent from
h:m. and give it unto him which
hs^h ten talents.
For unto everv one that hath
•shall he vlven. and he shall have
•tbundance: but from him that
mth not shall be taken away even
that whl^h he hath.
And ca«t ve the unprofitable serv
ant into outer da’kn»ss: there shall
be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

There can be no great living with
er serious and definite commit
ment. Conservation, when it is cut
■ off from activity, becomes itself a
principle of destruction.
Aggressive Christianity
As in the military conflict, attack
is often the truest form of defense,
so aggression in Christian living is
uUen the surest way of maintaining
growth in grace and effectiveness
in service. It was John R. Seeley
who declared in Ecce Homo that j
no virtue is safe that is not pas- 1
sionate. What he meant by that
was that positive goodness is the
i soul's surest foundation against
5 temptation.
But let us again emphasise the
fact that Jesus s dealing with real
values and with true efficiency.
We make our lives great by living,
and the mar. who refuses to live
abundantly not only limits the
tower and effectiveness of his own
. life, but he tends to destroy the
very force that God has given him
to exercise.

use Black-Draught, and after I

home. I don't think there Is any
thing like it.
“Whenever I am troubled with
constipation, or bilious indigestion.
I Immediately begin to take Blac*
Draught, and soon am feeling like
myself again. Sometimes I have
spells of indigestion when I have
heaviness in my chest and short
ness of breath. Whenever I would
eat meat, and some other things
I would almost smother. I found
that tAiring Black-Draught relieved
this entirely, and I am not both
ered with indigestion any more.
“This summer, when I went on
my vacation, I took Black-Draught
with me. I recommend it to
others, because I have found it to
be so good, for in a day or two

I feel splendid." **-*•«.
