HATS OFF TO THESE BANKS HATS off to the country bankers! The 120 members of the state guaranty system who met in Seattle on Sunday and who, in less than three hours, apreed unanimously to a plan for creating a new bank to replace the Scandinavian American, achieved one of the finest, biggest, most constructive pieces of financing ever undertaken in this state. If their plan succeeds—and there is no reason why it won't—they will have done these im portant things: * * * 1. They will have converted the discredited, depleted, down-and-out guaranty system from a complete fail ure under it* first test to an established, workable, sound guaranty system for the member banks. They will and shame which the entire state of Washington would share to a sign which any small state bank might display on its front window with pride. 3. They will have founded in Seattle a bank which shall be a reserve institution for them and which shall be managed under their direction and their careful scrutiny. This will ha an institution unique in Ameri can knnhlng history, Just an their plan m unique. It will be a bank nearly as large as the old Scandinavian and far stronger to begin with than the Scandinavian has been for 15 years back. 4. They will have done justice to the depositors of the ruined bank. The depositors with $lOO or lens and there were 13,000 of them—will receive, if they wish it, on the day the new bank opens, 100 cents on the dollar in cash. The 8,000 larger depositors will receive more money and receive it quicker than they would thru the regular liquidation, and they, too, will receive eventually 100 cents on the dollar. This "come back" of the depositors is one of the finest elements in the situation. It will work immeasurably to restore public confidence in conditions and in the banking system. It will build morale and good feeling. * * * In short, those 120 country bankers have grappled with a community and state disaster and. thru deter mination and intelligence and courage, have turned it into the makings of a constructive triumph. They recognized their moral obligation as handlers of the people's money and the people's credit, and with a display of co-operative spirit that will long be notable in the annals of Washington, they voted to subscribe $1,250,000 to make good on their vision and their ideals. That's why The Star proposes hats off to these men! In August the larger depositors will be asked to agree to the plan, and to defer their claim to 25 per cent of their money. There ought to be no hesitation on their part in doing this, for they will thereby be better off than under the present method of liquidation. Then, when the necessary amount of these deposits is waived and the state bankers have completed their pro rata subscriptions, the new bank will be ready to open October 1. Ralph S. Stacy, one of the most capable bankers in the state, is to be president, on the insistence of the organizers. The Washington State bank has been suggested as the institution's name—and it is a good one. * * * When It opens on that day. The Star believes as praiseworthy an enterprise will have been launched as ever saw the light of day in the Pacific Northwest. SPIDER AND HORNET FIGHT DEADLY DUEL A bat• le to the death Ww»n a hornet and a great red spider was witnessed Sunday by Mr. and Mrs. Howard Kwlnjt, 2107 41st ave. N.
