With the stock all sold for a new
bank to take the place of the closed
First National, the biggest job in re
ttorlng the bank to the business life
of the community, there is yet one
more sizeable task that must be got
ten out of the way before the In
stitution can be reopened. That is for
the remaining fifteen percent of the
depositors In the closed bank to sign
the agreement which has been ex
tended to them to permit their money
to remain for a definite period of
This ought to be a simple matter.
And so far It has been. To have re
ceived the voluntary cooperation from
to percent of the depositors Is a
measure of cooperation which rarely
Is given in an undertaking of this
kind But they have acted for their
own best interests, and it is hard to
•ae how the remaining 15 percent of
the depositors can hold back. In the
light of the very generous offer that
has been made.
Federal banking officials In Wash
ington have said that the proposition
to depositors of the closed bank here
Is an exception, and does not occur
in more than or.e in a score of in
stances Only one or two closed banks
in North Carolina have made any
such offer to their depositors as a
means of getting the bank back Into
operation, and in most instances hard
- ly more than two-thirds of the money
tied up has been promised, some of
them being much less than that.
Depositors In the First National
probably do not realize Just how very
fortunate they are in the turn events
have taken. The offer is in every
sense of the word in their favor. They
are promised ten percent the day the
bank opens, and are assured all of
the remainder in three years or less
If a forced government liquidation
were undertaken, they would get
nothing at all before next fall, and
never would get all of their money.
To j-efuse to cooperate under the
present plan is to stand in their own
light and to pursue a course that
might mean great loss to them More
over. they owe It the other depositors
who have cooperated in the under
taking to fall in line themselves. If
they are skeptical, they should bear
In mind that to percent of the de
positors could hardly be 100 percent
Those who hold out. if there should
be any such, will be contributing to
ward blocking procedure all along the
line. The interests of the community
are too much at stake to follow such
an unwise course. Hundreds of puhllc
•pirited citizens have shown their in
terest and concern for the welfare
of the city and county by buying stock
In the new bank. Depositors are no
longer asked to do this, and the only
•thing that is required of them now
to make this undertaking a great
success is to do as others have done
and sign thf agreement to allow their
money to stay In the new bank until
tt can be paid to all alike.
Bank authorities are hoping and
expecting this cooperation, and are
confident they will receive It. Already
they are going ahead with reorgan
isation plans, so that the new bank
can be put into operation at the ear
liest moment possible. Their work can
be made all tha easier and more
pleasant if the few remaining de
positors wfll do their part, as the com
munity has a right to expect of them.

To the Editor:
Seemingly as a diversion from the
usual every day topics, a group of
Franklin county citizens refreshed
their memory in a discussion of a
few political events of days not so
far gone. It was brought out that
.prior to the convening of one of the
late session of the Legislature, a cer
tain man running for Speaker of the
House, was asked by a reporter for
an expression of hi* views. His an
swer was brief and emphatic—ls not
prophetic. He said; “AH I know is
that I am going to be the next
Speaker." It developed that R. T.
Fountain was chosen as Speaker.
Reverting to a more recent adven
ture In the realm of prophecy. It was
pointed out again that the last gen
tleman to enter for the Democratic
gubernatorial nomination, is the first
to make the open declaration that he
Is going to be the next Governor of
North Carolina, as variously quoted
In the press. "I will go Into the Gov
ernor’s office next January a free
man," and so forth and so on. It seems
that neither of the other two can
didates Is quite so cocksure. If so
they have kept it out of the papers—
maybe for some satisfactory reason.
It seems apparent that the “next

To the Editor;
The battle of the ballots In the pri
mary campaign on June the fourth
will evidently produce some very un
usual surprises. No previous political
campaign In North Carolina has ap
proached Its climax with so much un
certainty prevailing a* the present
A great host of both Major and
Minor political prophets have sub
mitted predictions, none of which are
based on any reasonable hypothesis.
They are simply wild guesses colored
by the Individual preference of the
The news writers are all at sea as
evidenced by their frequent change
of predictions. Tom Bost has almost
exhausted all the figures In the Ari
thmetic In his eagerness to guess the
outcome. He is the indflrect bene
ficiary of a fine juicy piece of po
litical patronage ana is terribly anx
ious to guess correctly. He has nail
ed his colors to the Mast of the
Ehringhaus Bark and Is doing his
level best to make hta guess come
true. If he backs the wrong horse
there will be weeping and wailing In
the Bost household after the Novem
ber election.
J. C. BaskervHl. your Raleigh cor
respondent is another proflific guesses
who seems very anxious to pick the
winners. The multitudes of guesses
he ha* printed for the past three
months have ranged all the way from
the sublime to the ridiculous. It is
amusing to read his conclusions and
they are as wide of the mark as
those issued from the headquarters
of the various candidates by their
managers. It is an exciting past time
and probably do the candidates more
harm than any other methods used
during political campaigns.
This is one time that one man’s
guess is as good as another as to the
strength the numerous candidates
will develop on June the fourth.
Neither the candidates nor their man
agers know one single thing about
what is going to happen next Sat
