GREAT THINGS —Fear the Lord,
and serve him An truibh: for consider
how great things he t»t« dome for
you lSamut-i 12: 24.
Decision of the comptroller of the
currency to backtrack on the plan for
the new national bank, almost on the
eve of its pTobable opening, has
brought a feeling of chargtn and dis
appointment to thousands In this com
munity who had been looking forward
anxiously and with hope to the event
aa a stimulus to local business. There
la* a fairly general conviction that
a grave injustice hits been done to
this community by some one or some
group in Washington. The least that
is to be said is that this turn of events
reveals mighty little interest in or
concern for the welfare of local com
munities on the part of certain gov
ernment officials. They are far re
moved from the lashing of the con
crete realities of this depression. Gov
ernment payrolls that have been
slashed scarcely any at all shield
them from the hardships felt by every
one who is trying to make a go of
a business and from the howl of the
wolf at the door. Hardly are they cap
able of sympathy for people who are
compelled to grapple every day and
every day with the actualities of hard
If the plan of reorganization that
hats been put across here was too
generous, or if it promised too much
why was it approved in the first
place, and why didn’t Washington
turn thumbs down before there was
any sign-up at alt and before any capi
tal stock was sold? That would have
been the sensible thing to do. If the
plan which by hard work and months
of pleading and urging had been at
last sold to our people was not suit
able. some one In Washington was
not properly attentive to hls duties
when he sat indifferently by and al
lowed all this to go on here, in the
best of faith on the part of every
one concerned, and at the last minute
sent down a letter of disapproval,
setting at naught the whole matter.
Well, that much is off the chest. We
could say a great deal more and would
like very much to say it, but will
yield to better judgment and desist
from the temptation to call a spade
a spade.
Facts are facts, as unpleasant as
they may be. Waiving aside what
has happened, the plain truth is that
the new proposition is infinitely bet
ter than a liquidation would be. Let
this one thing sink down deep into
every mind, namely, that It will mean
more money to depositors than a li
quidation. and will be far safer for
stockholders in the new bank. Ten
percent in cash the day of the open
ing and sixty percent more in one.
two and three years will be seventy
percent in all. and by no manner of
reasoning could it be supposed that
anything like that much would ever be
paid depositors if the receiver closed
out the assets of the bank. Moreover,
the new plan offers three percent in
terest on the deferred payments In
this sixty percent, whereas deferred
payments drew no interest at all urv
dsr the former plan. Approximately
a quarter of a million dollars of secur
ities held by the closed bank will bo
trusteed for collection, and all receipts
from such collections will be paid
against the unpledged thirty percent
of deposits. That certainty means
that a considerable portion of that
amount will eventually be paid off.
No one has anything to gain by
holding out on this new slgn-up. There
is little to lose and everything to win
*by coming in on the proposition at
-ABee and putting* the job over without
• Henderson needs this bank back In
business, not that the community's
banking requirements are not well
provided for now, but especially In
the Interest of eventual returns to de
positors whose money Is tied up in
the old bank. We shall be* no better
off by holding out; we shall be a great
deal better off by giving our coop
eration to the utmost. Let’s do this
job, do It all over again, ms we must,
and do It quickly and with a smile,
and get things going on a basis as
nearly normal as possible. It means an
improvement in business just that
much sooner.
The offer of the men In the 100th
Medical Regiment Band to furnish
concerts or to play in the community
on such occasions as may call for
their services is a generous one. Their
condition is that some some sort of
uniforms be furnished them to wear
at the performances, and it is hoped
that some arrangement may be made
to meet their proposition.
Henderson has every right to be
proud of this band. It is not every
community that has such a musical
organization, but there are many that
would like to have one. Our good for
tune is that the government foots the
bill and then pays the men for good
measure. The least we can do as &
community is to support the band in
whatever measure we may, and to
give a manifestation of our apprecia
Those who have not heard the band
play do not realize the measure of
efficiency it has developed. It came in
for numerous high compliments dur
ing the encampment at Columbia the
past two weeks. Warrant Officer Ben
Urquhart. the director, and all the
men in the organization are to be
congratulated upon their achieve
ments. If folks away from home are
so appreciative, may we not be also
who live here in the home town and
know the members of the band per
sonally and call them by name?
Last Sunday's elections in Germany
brought sharp gains to Adolf Hitler's
party of Nazi's, but again for the
second time the brown shirts have
failed to roll up sufficient strength to
give them a majority in the Reich
stag and thus control of the govern
There are many parties in the Ger
man republic, and most of them are
working in different directions. Such
a condition appears to offer the cer
tainty that Chancellor Franz von
Papen's ministry will continue at the
helm, and the evil day that had been
feared is deferred for a little while
Unless there is a change, Hitler
eventually will attain his goal. And
the best assurance that the present
constitutional regime shall be able to
stand would be an upturn in economic
conditions. That condition would at
least be encouraged by the effective
ness of the Lausanne agreement last
month, paring down reparations al
most to the vanishing point.
Americans, and for that matter
most of the rest of the world, have
so many troubles of their own to
think and worry about that they have
little time or inclination to lose much
sleep over what is going on in Ger
many, but just the same events there
can influence to a great extent the
course of economic and possibly poli
tical events In other countries.
Uncle Sam's business seems to have
slipped into the rut that has befallen
private enterprise, in that the months
have for so long rolled by one after
the other with the ledger in the red
that it appears an almost impossible
task to get Pack on the other side of
the column. The astonishing situation
* s revealed that in July, the first
month of the new 1933 fiscal year,
there is a deficit of even greater pro
portions than in the corresponding
month last year, in spite of higher
taxes and economy measures in
stituted by Congress and the admin
istration in a desperate effort to even
things up.
Revenue last month was less and
expenditures greater than in July,
1931, and the wonder is as to how
long this situation will continue. With
the power to tax, it is possible for the
government to make levies upon the
people to the point that deficits can
absolutely be eliminated. But the wis
dom of such a course may quite rea
sonably be questioned.
It must be said, of course, that the
provisions of the new tax bill have
not all become operative as yet to
the point where they can be taken
fully into account, and the same is
true of economies planned. For that
reason, the situation, as bad as It is.
Is hardly as bilious as it may appear
at first blush.
But at beat there Is a bit of dis
appointment at the showing for the
first month of the new fiscal year.
If the balance sheet is to continue of
this same hue. then, after all, the
government may be forced to resort
to a sales tax in some form or an
other to produce the revenues it needs
and which It must have.
