MR BRYAN'S OPINIONS
The plan ot guaranteed bank deposits has probably found favor, among all classes of peo ple and irrespective of political affiliation, more rapidly thin any other public question. The new state of Oklahoma has already enacted a law tax ing state banks, the fund thus accumulated to be used in pay ing the depositors of any state bank that from any cause be comes unable to meet its obliga tions. A special session of the Kansas legislature has been called for the purpose of enact ing legislation similar to the Oklahoma plan The governor of Nebraska is considering the advisability of calling a special session of the legislature on ac count of the growing belief among the people that protec tion to bank depositors in the form of state or federal guaran tees of their deposits will stop the hoarding of money, bring in to circulation sufficient curren cy to conduct the business of the country, and prevent a re currence of such disastrous pan ics as the one through which we are now parsing. Mr. Bryan has been an advo cateof a law guaranteeing de posits iu siate and national banks since 1893 Tae legisla ture of Otiio das adopted a joint resolution inviting Mr Bryan to address its members in joint session February 18. 1938. on the subject of Guaranteed Bank Deposits. Mr. Bryan, in discussing the tariff question, insists that rest dents of the United States should be permitted to buy home-made goods at home at as low a price as the foreigner can buy American-made goods abroad. He also insists that our government should be by and for the people as a whole, rath er than by and for the trusts, and administered in the interest of a few beneficiaries of the trust system. He believes that nalional legislation for the pur pose ot better regulation and control of interstate commerce and common carriers should supplement state legislation. and not be a substitute for state legislation.

An amusing story is related of a farmer who came into a village store in one of the west ern 6tates and exhibited to an admiring crowd an enormous egg, about six inches long, lie had it packed in cotton, and would uut allow anybody to handle it for fear of breaking the phenomenal production. The proprietor of the store ex amined it with the rest, and in tending to chaff the country man, said: 'Pshaw I've got something 1n the egg line that will beit that!" I'll bet you $5 you haven't!" aid the countryman, getting excited. Til take it up," said the storekeeper; and, going behind the counter, he brought out a wire egg beater. "There's some thing in the ege line that will beat it, I guess.'' said he, reach ing for the stakes "Hold on there," said the farmer, "let's see you beat it!1' and handed the egg to the store keeper The latter held out his hand for it. but dropped it in surprise on the counter, where it broke two soup plates and a platter It was of iron painted white.
