In the last year the number of savings bank depositors has increased over 300,000. The total amount of their delposits has risen $357,000,000 in twelve months. The average amount of every depositor's account is $445, which is nearly $25 more than the average, the year be fore. It is certain that not less than $6, 000.000 in bank deposits can fairly be counted as savings. 'The national banks hold about $800,000,000 of such deposits. The trust companies have about $700,000,000 in savings accounts. The state banks hold over $500,000 000 on savings bank conditions. Total. savings deposits of the country can not fall under $6,000,000,000. There are more than 15,000,000 separate accounts in that immense sum. The contrast between these figures and the statistics which measure the savings of other countries is proof of the difference between the ability to save and the wide diffusion of pros perity in the United States and the conditions in foreign lands. In Germany, for instance, there are more than 19,000,000 savings accounts, but the total amount represented by that multitude of deposits is only about $3,400,000,000, or little more than half of the savings deposits in American banks. The United King dom, with nearly half as large a popu lation as that of the United States, has about 13,000,000 savings accounts, including postal savings banks, of course, but the deposits amount to only about $1,050,000,000, or 16 per cent. of the American total. Austria and Hungary together have about $1,600,000,000 in savings de posits owned by nearly 8,000,000 de positors. Italy stands high in the number of savings accounts, with 7, 000,000 of them, in round figures, but low in the total amount of the de posits, which are under $700,000,000. Japan is a marvel in respect to the wide use of savings banks, including the postal savings department of the government, but the amount of the deposits is very small in proportion to the multitude of accounts. Harem Refugee Goes Back to Turkey NOW I AM NOT AFRAID OF ALL. TE TURKS IN TURKEY '4 SHALL return to Turkey and min ister to the persecutions of my people," says Berniza Baherion, an Armenian girl, who is looking forward to the time when she will return to Constantinople, whence she fled six years ago, disguised as the servant of an American missionary, to escape life in a Musselman's harem. She will returnas an American citi zen, an unordained minister of a Chris tian creed and a graduate nurse with a diploma from the Seventh Day Ad ventist sanitarium of this city and six months' experience in the famous London City hospital. She is just fin ishing her third and last year at the local institution, and this winter will go to England for the post-graduate course in the London hospital before going to Turkey. Asked if she no longer dreaded those who had attempted to harm her, she replied: "They dare not molest me. I have lived in this country for six years. I am now an American citizen. I have taken out my first papers and am now ready to swear allegiance to the land of my adoption. As Miss Baherion talked her voice was tense with emotion and her hands worked nervously, as she lived again the days that preceded her flight. She told how, as a child, reared in the Armenian faith, she had been convert ed by her father, himself a convert of the Adventist mission house in Con stantinople. "My father went about among his people trying to convert them. He was warned to stop. He refused to heed the warnings. He must show his people the light. He was imprisoned at Alexandrata, near Constantinople. "Soon after my father had been ta. ken from us my mother learned from friends that a wealthy Turk wanted me to join his harem. My mother re fused to treat with him and he finally laid a trap to kidnap me. Warned in time, I remained a prisoner in my own home. "Finally Doctor George advised my mother to send me to America. Dis guised as his servant, in boy's clothes, we went to Alexandria. After we had arrived at Alexandria everything was easy. Friends of Doctor George ac companied me to London. There I was turned over to the care of members of our church who were bound to New York. From New York I was sent to Lincoln, Neb., where I entered the Ad. 1 ventist school and later the Union col lege there. I stayed there three years t altogether. Then I was sent on here N for the nurses' course." c White House Season Formally Opens F ORMIAL announcement of official functions to be given at the White House during the season has been made. These official affairs are quite distinct from those given by Mrs. Taft when the occasions are sur round by a more private and personal atmosphere. According to established custom the reception to the diplomat corps will be given first, and the date chosen is January 10, to be followed 'a week later by the diplomatic dinner. At the reception all persons connected with the embassies and legations, and the members of their families, are in vited to be present, but at the dinner only the diplomatic chiefs and their wives, if there are any, receive invi tations. On January 24 the annual reception to the judiciary will take place, which a week later will be followed by the customary dinner to the members of the Supreme court. Mr. Justice Hughes and Mrs. Hughes will attend these functions at the White House as guests of honor for the first time. The reception to the congressional circles will be on February 7, and as a dinner to these same people would be a practical impossibility at the White House, one is not given, but President and Mrs. Taft conceived the idea of giving a dinner in compli ment to the speaker when they took possession of the White House, and last year the custom was inaugurated. The following Tuesday, February 21, the state functions, which last a trifle over two months, will be con cluded with the reception to the army and navy, an affair which has more brilliancy than any of the others, ow ing to the fact that most of the men guests are in full-dress uniform. Most people are uncertain whether they prefer to be present at the first or the last of the rec5ptions, for, of course, that given especially~ , iy*te diplomats is particularly brilliant. Health Expert on Dangerous Games D R. HARVEY W. WILEY, chief chemist of the department of ag riculture and national authority on how to eat, has essayed .a new role. Doctor Wiley has announced himself as a believer in the doctrine that it is better to have a few boys killed at i football, on the diamond and in the I water than to bring up a race of t mollycoddles. t Rough sport, according to Doctor b Wiley, is essential to the upbringing I of a race of fearless, sturdy men who 8 are qualified to cope with the great problems of life and to furnish the t right sort of backbone for a progres.I a sive nation. To a reporter Doctor a; Wiley said: ci "It is better, even for a few indi- re vtluai, to sacrifice themselves for vi the good of the face than to bring up mollycoddles. "If all the sports in which persons have sometimes been killed should be eliminated from the list of human activities, only ring-around-a-rosy would be left. Football would, of course, never be played again; base ball, riding, driving, swimming, boat ing, skating, flying in the, air would soon be forgotten pleasures. "It is that very element of danger in a -sport that makes the sport an education in itself. It is the danger in 'the sport that educates youths and lads to be bold and fearless, and to be resourceful when beset with troublesome problems. The boy who has not played at dangerous games is not apt to know how to work at dan gerous labors. "The out-of-doors life of games, par ticularly of games of lusty activity, are necessary to children. City boys and girls, as compared with their country cousins, are raised under a restraint that works to their disad. vantage."
