Whether they know It or not, the
man who takes his money out of the
hunk is striking a terrific blow at his |
own future and welfare in the com-1
munlty where he lives. If enough lit*
tie depositors were to follow the ex ,
ample set by even a few big or little j
ones and were to force the closing
of the bank, the community disaster
that would follow would react on the |
man polling his money out far more 1
than had he left It tn there.
What a tragedy that so many peo
ple cannot see that far beyond the •
ead of their nose. They have to learn
by bitter experience, and In the
learning punish their neighbor* who
had more faith and confidence.
Our neighbor, the Elisabeth City
Advance, a few days ago made some
observations along this line. We
think the editorial most timely, and
are reproducing here:
An old friend of this newspaper
dropped la the other day and asked
me what J thought or The First
and Citizens National Bank since its ‘
founder C. H. Robinson had died?
I told him that I thought The First
and CM tarns National tn better hands
today than at any time within the
past ten year*
“And I'm about to begin to think
the same thing,'* said m> iM friend.
And then be unbosomed himself.
“You know,” bo said, “I began to
get shaky about banks and took my r
money out of the bank several months i
ago. I have Just put it back in the I
hank again. I have been doing some
tall thinking. Tou see, I had several
thousand dollars Had up in the Caro- .
Horn Bank when it went busted and I
didn't waot to take chances on an
other bank. But I have come to be
lieve that I'm better off with my
money tied up In that busted bank
than In anything else. It has paid mt
five ten-per-cent dividends since It
busted and I reckon I'll get it all in
tltoe. I don't know anything else that
has |bid as well as that. Two years
ago one would have thought United
States Steel the best investment in
the jpountry. Folks who put their
mondy In United States Steel a few
yearn ago are now holding paper that
is wprth only 15 cents on th e dollar.
Andftook at real estate; people who
tosreqtod in real estate have seen
thel#lnvestments shrink to a third or
* fcfcrth of their former value. I
just reached the conclusion that
rnonar _•»*■ in a busted bank Is
worth more than money In stocks and
b«nds 'and real estate.”
I am passing the soliloquy of my
oM friend on to the Tenders of this
newspaper for their consideration. If
everybody adopted his way of think
lag tberd would be no more bank
failures la North Carolina. Banka
tiptoe on eoaAdeace; banks are de
stroyed by fear and distrust. Even
Use U. S. Treasury itself would have
to aloea -it* doon If all of Uncle.
Barn's creditors Should demand a
Film bath City’s First and Citizens
National Bank has over a half mil
lion dollars In available cash and can
com mead a mlUloo more on a few
hours notice. Tha chairman of Ita
board. C. 0. Robtooon, the aUi
at bis family nod business connections
could In all probability mobilize an
other million If put to the pinch. The
First and Citizens National Bank, with
Us long and successful record and un- J
der conservative and hard-boiled i
management la today porhapo on# of'
the strongest financial Institutions in
North Carolina. But the First and
Citizens National could not survive
a steady withdrawal of deposits over
a period of many months.
And so my old friend who with
drew his money from the bank seve
ral months ago and put It back again
has displayed the greatest business
sagacity, patriotism and good citizen
ship. It did him good to discover
that money even in a closed bank
may be far safer today than money
tied up In real estate or in stocks and
It Is his kind that make banks and
banking safe. Without a lot of his
a kind every bank In Christendom
I would be destroyed and all Industry
I and agriculture dragged down into
■ total bankruptcy In the general crash.
My advice to all who arc persuaded
to hide their money out is to put
their money in a bank whose officers
J and directors are men of character and
business acumen. There are a lot of
good banks left, the strongest and
the best.
Others besides the preachers are
coming around to the view that the
false gods we have worshiped are as
powerless to help us in time of trouble
1 as were those upon whom Israel call
ed in vain, and then was forced to
i ....
turn again to the one true God for |
; succor. This generation is faced with
1 the same necessity, and is rapidly
coming to its senses in that respect.
Our dependence cannot but fall If it
be elsewhere than In the Ruler of
I the Universe.

lot more thinking in the last two years
* than they ever did In any two before.

Robert Qullian, the columnist, has
offered ”a prayer for a nation that
has lost the way.” Oh, yes, It Is none
other than this America we love, which
is the dearest land on earth to us We
read recently of the preacher who
ventured the faith that if the world;
should Bop to Its knees 1n an earnest 1
entreaty to Almighty God for help,
that help would come. He thought the
, windows of heaven would be opened
and blessings would be showered upon
us In such measure that we should
scarcely know what to do with them
all. Talk about moratoriums, tax re
ductions, salary cuts, tariffs, foreign
trade and the like all you please, but
here is the real remedy and the only
wajl oust QutUam prays htus for
our native land:
God of our fathers, hear our pray
er for this nation and Its people.
Our people are hungry in the midst
of abundance. Though we Mv e at
peace with the world, our hearts are
filled with doubts and fears. We walk
blindly, In dread of disaster, and there
is none to lead us.
The gods we trusted have failed us
in our time of need. They give us
neither peace of mind nor courage to
We have been false to Thee, and our
folly has found us out.

we grew great in our own esteem, and
felt no need of Thee. We blamed
Thee only for our misfortunes and
took credit lo ourselves for all that
was good. In the abundance of our
good fortune, w* forgot humility and
Because men of science discovered
and harnessed a few of Thy multi
tude of laws, we said to ourselves:
“How great and wonderful is man!
Who is God that men should worship
Him!** We were awed by the little
knowledge of men. and the worship
of science because our religion.
Because cunning and artful men |
mocked Thee and ridiculed Thy fol

coveted their good opinion. We sac
rlficed Thy approval to gain theirs,
and boasted of our courage because
,we dared blaspheme the Author of
the universe.
Pride of wealth and pride of know
ledge caused us to forsake Thee, and
now our sins have found us out.
Once again we follow the immemo
rial way of repentance and turn to
Thee when all els e falls.
An humble and a contrite heart. O
Übrd, Thou will not despise.
Teach us to find the way back to
Help Thou our unbelief. Help us
once more to have faith that all
things work together for good to them
that love and fear Thee. Help us
once more to be God's men unash

J So Congress will have only one vote
I on liquor at this session, eh? Well,
’ tfcftt ought to be enough.
1 One by one the new automobile
t models are coming out and are put
r on display for the public to wonder
at and to yearn for. And, how they
- do malte the mouth water. They are
- pretty enough to bite and comfortable
i enough to satisfy not only the healthy,
i hilarious youth and middle-aged man
• or woman, but the old and decrepid,
r and rheumatic and whatnot
l The new cars probably are the best
r the manufacturers have ever offered
1 to the public. There is better quality
and lower cost; in abort, the greatest
l value ever offered. 'Even five years
i ago no one would have thought that
i so much for the money could be ob
r tained as is available to the motorist'
* today.
An observer has pointed out that
1 automotive development seems to run
cycles of six or eight years. Possibly
1 It is the "sacred number” that stfems
1 to govern so many cycles. Aboul
seven years ago came a sudden flood
1 i of improvements, including balloon
tires, hydraulic brakes and snubbers.
There had been a previous spurt of
the same kind seven years before that.
And a pretty good case might bo
made for a similar pre-war phenome
It happens, too. that these bursts of
automotive progress coincided pretty
well with a resumption of prosperity
after a slump. It may have been
either coincidence or cause. If it
| was the latter, here Is a fine oppor
tunity foi the automobile Industry to
set business on its feet again, what
with free wheeling, easier gear-shift
ing. less wind resiAUi net* % greaivr
beauty of l'ne and color, less noise,
more speed.
The new 1932 models, accepting all
the claims made for them, offer the
motorist his greatest bargain. They
are a. treat for the eyes to feast upon,
and almost make you willing io go
hungry to possess one of them.
.. In a few short weeks those farmer* \
who Uls year will grow tobacco will
begin to give leitos consideration to
starting their crop.. As strange as It
may seem, one crop Is not completed
before another has to *e started, so
that growing tobacco Is an all-year
Job, one that is never finished.
This year, perhaps as never before,
greater intelligence is going to be
! needed if the best results for the grow
ers are to be had when harvest time
rolls around again. They ought to
have Information as to world condi
tions, stocks of goods on hand and the
quality of the reserves In the hands
of the manufacturers. With the con
vincing facts in their possession, it is
difficult to believe that the growers
will plunge headlong into a condi
tion next fall which may conceivably
be worse than the present one If a
larger crop Is produced and thrown
upon the market.
This Is a matter in which ware
housemen and business men In gene
ral are interested. All of them arc
grabbing for the “high dollar.” and
ought to be willing to cooperate In
the best possible manner to get it. In
the current issue of the Tobacco
Trade Journal of New York is an edi
torial that emphasises this thought.
Under the heading "That High Dollar"
Tobacco says:
“One of the phases, much used In
tobacco warehouse floor lingo, is the
attractive '.ilgh dollar.” In fact, it is
overworked. Instead of continually
using words that mean little, under
present conditions, why don'l the
warehousing which shall bo useful to
their customers, the growers?
“High dollar language, when low
penny averages prevail, is almost as
futile as talking full dinner pails to
men working two or thfee days week
ly -and weakly -or not at all.
“What the planter of tobacco should
get is more definite information about
crop and markst. This detail the
warehouseman is best able to supply
directly to his clients, the farmers.
lAnd all the progressive warehouse
must do is to communicate with the
I Federal and State Departments of Ag
riculture. They are always glad to
cooperate in supplying the positive
and correct slant on the tobacco crop
situation, which is usually so cloudily
handled by sources of contact either
supplying or selling for the farmers.
“Also, the occasional tobacco bulle
tins from the Department of Com
merce are useful. Tobacco growers
and their warehousemen will seldom
or never see the high dollar again
unless they conform more generally
with the economic elements of/supply
and demand.
"These elements are constantly fluc
tuating. No man, no official* source
may know, positively, what they shall
be tomorrow. Yet, after a more or
less Intensive reading and study of
world tobacco conditions, the average
intelligent man may determine exact
ly what he shell do to re-establish his
own, personal, high dollar.
"Too many growers, of course, ut
terly neglect self-help bulletins, which
i are theirs for the asking. But ware
, housemen, In their more than rattier
, dose and personal contact with their
growers, may read-and study Che
bullgflns themselyetfSttid thdft pees
the Information on to their customers
In every day conservation.
"Warehousemen, who take the
trouble to do this, are usually well In
formed about the tobacco markets
and general conditions. They do not
permit local circumstances to In
fluence their crop and market state
ments and opinions.
“And the planters, no matter what
they may say, offhand, are glad to get
all the information they possibly can
about that elusive high dollar.
“Send for the bulletins, you ware
housemen. and circulate and post
them. -Do all you can to keep your
customers more directly informed
about the causes and results which
shall make the high dollar something
more than just ten enticing letters
in a language which the growers
should understand and speak as read
ily and as fluently as the buyers.”

In the main, arguments of the
slump-lovers hold that now a certain

that American life has slackened Its
pace, and that when people are com
fortable once more they will retain a
sense or the worth of life in'itself, of
leisure and quiet talk. When boom
times return, chronic grouchs can
thus still find something to beef about.
