About a year ago the management of this bank, surveying the prospects for business in Barre and vicinity, made a report to the Board of Directors that ow ing to unusual business conditions litl'e increase in savings deposits for the year 1922 could be reasonably expected. In fact, it was felt if the present amount on deposit could be maintained it would be fortunate indeed. This statement was also made to the employees of the bank and it was the oninion of all, that in view of conditions and in order to maintain a record which for a number of years past been a matter of great pride, a special ef fort should be made to render better and more diversified services and do all posible to bring the public into a little closer personal relation with the em ployees, officers and directors of the bank. This ambition has taxed our personnel at times to the Imit. However, on the whole, we feel that we may have possibly given greater service, a little better, a little quicker and a little pleasanter than we did the year before. , The point that we have desired particularly to make is to convince people who come into the bank that their interests are having the personal attention of some one or more people, in the organization, people whose interests are akin to theirs and are in full sympathy with their needs. Banking has become highly systematized and its routine has become intri cate. We do not intend, however, to leave your financial affairs to a machine routine, and we feel that you may rightfully expect efficiency without sacrifice of that fine quality of personal courtesy which honorable conduct requires. The following figures may give some indication of the extent to which this part of our banking service has been developed: New Savings Accounts Jan. 1, 1922, to July 1, 1922 ..... . , . . ... . .583 New Savings Accounts July 1, 1922, to date ................... .390 Total New Savings Accounts Jan. 1, 1922, to date. .973 Total increase in Savings Department Jan. 1, -1922 to date, over $200,000 Peoples National Bank of Barre 4 per cent The Only National Bank in Barre 4 per cent BARRE DAILY TIMES MONDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1922. ublished Every Wsk-Dy AftrnooB by THE BA.RRH TIMES, INC Frank K.

It is not necessary to join the Ku Klux Klan in order to be a 100 per cent American. In fact, it is easier to be 100 pec .rent American outside than inside the Klan. , With Boston's rat population now exceeding the human population it looks like good opportunity to treat 'em rough. The rodent in such num bers have dangerous possibilities, es pecially with relation to public health. . Sentencing of a perjurer in the Hall- Mills murder case at. New Brunswick, X. J., the man who accud anoth er of committing the double murder and then .repudiated the confession fits the offense all right. Now if they 'Medical authorities may disagree whether or not it is the influenza that has broken out at the Boston navy yard, but the public in general will not be inclined to take any chances. One visitation of the "flu" waa enough for all time. One effect of the edict of Secretary of State Black in refusing to assign definite numbers for motor vehicle registration and in passing out the registration plates in numerical order is a large rush to secure early regis tration for 1923. Perhaps that may serve to bring about that much-sought economy by avoiding the necessity of hiring so much he)p at abouj the time the pleasurable motoring season opens. The action of Representative Keller of Minnesota in withdrawing from the proceedings instigated by himself against Attorney General Daugherty, because of alleged dissatisfaction with the manner of the procedure by the House judiciary committee, at once aroused the suspicion in the minds of the public that Keller does not have such convincing evidence against Daugherty as he proclaimed at . the outset in his sensational charge. Cer tainly, if he himself were thoroughly convinced of the strength of his ac cusations and the supporting evidence he would overlook any features dis pleasing to him in the procedure, feel ing tiiat the evidence he had to pre sent would vindicate his action. On the other hand, withdrawal in a state of pique raises doubt at. once. In bis continued refusal to appear before the committee to testify in support of hia accusations, the committee ought to continue the proceedings with the presentation of whatever evidence it can secure and then make its report to the House. Meanwhile the House may be disposed to take some action on its own initiative regarding Rep resentative Keller himself. illustrate the unwisdom of partaking of any food article, the giver of which is unknown. It was odd enough that Sir William Harwood, head of Scotland Yard, that great sleuthing force in London, should himself fall a victim to poispned can dy sent him by some unknown person. If anyone should have had suspicion concerning the nature of an anony mous gift of that nature jt ought to have been the head of a great detec tive force inasmuch as his department has to deal constantly with plots, ruses and trickery of all kinds. Yet Sir William Harwood seems to have walked right into the plot as inno cently as the person most unacquaint ed with crime. No doubt the success of that effort induced the criminal or the crazy person to attempt a similar performance against British Home Sec retary W. C. Bridgeman, but the sec ond attempt was most clumsy, the de-1 tails having been quite . similar to) those in the Harwood poisoning anCj naturally, arousing the suspicions of j the recipient at once. The two cases' EUROPE WANTS MORE AM ERI CA X SACRIFICES. The i manoeuvring being done through British agencies to get the United States to abandon claims against France for debts growing out of the war and perhaps claims against Great Britain herself is so persistent as to command attention. At first, the manoeuvring was very insidious and, apparently, unauthoritative, and it served as a feeler to try out public sentiment in the United States as well as to test the feeling of the govern ment in Washington. Latterly, the efforts have come out more into the open and now they are turning into channels of actual negotiation, accord ing to the general belief. The pro posed negotiation r are based on the assumption that Germany is very near to collapse, as Premier Bonar Law told Parliament, that France is hard put to it to meet her obligations and that Great Britain cannot pay the United States unless she gets certain concessions. Under whatever guise, it is a most unusual request to ask of the United States, or of any nation.' When the allies were threatened with defeat at the hands of Germany an appeal was ; made to the United States to come to the. aid of those fast-weakening na tions, France especially. The United States did go the aid of the allies, not only with billions of money in actual loans but with many more billions of expenditure by the government at Washington to permit of active participation in the war to save the allies from Germany. Then the United States sacrificed tens of thousands of lives, the people at home underwent great suffering therefrom and the country itself received a stag gering blow to the current of its nor mal life because of participation in the war. But the United States saved France, saved Great Britain, saved the world from what eemed to be inevita ble German domination. In return for that service, those na tions ask the United States not only to take its own losses in men, in bil lions of dollars and in a disorganised national life but also to make it pos sible, by debt cancellation, for the warring nations on the allied aide to get bark easily into the normal cur rent of their existence, with the war nothing but a horrible memory. Un less there are conditions in Europe not generally known on this side of the Atlantic, it looks like an Unwar ranted quest this effort to get the United States to wipe out the obliga tions owed it by the allied countries.
