good reasons for the belief that an)

that if sought it could be attained. The

of shares by any individual or other

rect stock control is forever impossi

rect control it would be necessary for
such interests to purchase control of
the majority of the shares of more
than half in number and amount of the
twenty thousand independent banks of
the country. The use of such a stu
pendous sum as necessary Is highly
Impractical. The suggestion appears
foolish to those analyzing the silua
