Nerer before were bankers more deter mined than tbey are today to bring about wbaterer changes to our bank ing system are called for by tba public welfare. The Basis ei Good Laws Tba best results can and will be accomplished by normal processes and gradual adjustments of our pres <-nt private banking structure—suit ably supervised by proper authority —rather than by (ha passage of still more drastic laws, offering panaceas in the form of more government owned or government • controlled Unsocial organisations. Lasting laws relating to any phase of human need are formed end mod elled In the rough school of practical human experience and are utualiy tbe result of sound svolutlonary processes rather than of sudden lm pulses to change fundamental prln clplea If we analyte the new banking picture which has developed during the past eighteen months, wa can not help but arrive at tbe condo •ton that evolutionary changes which have taken place la banking, and the economic life of the nation of which It Is a part, have Justified much of tbe hanking legislation re cently passed. As we look ahead and consider tbe new problems which are facing us we must loevltably corns to the conclusion that some further changes in our banking laws will become necessary. Voluntary Reform H Is not enough that bankers merely acquiesce In banking Im posed by law. Zeal for evolutionary banking reform must be more ag gressive than that Banking prac tice Itself, without compulsion of law, can and should reflect the changes and lessons of the times and difficulties through which the nation has passed and. even to a greater extent than law, render banking more truly a good public servant by voluntary aeif-reform. In no amall measure is this accomplished by the better training of the member* of the banking fraternity and by In stilling constantly higher ideals In those who are ultimately responsible tor bank management As we march on Into the world of tomorrow the banker has a greater opportunity for usefulness than ever before, and 1 hope that the service he will render to society will be so conscientious, so constructive and so satisfactory as to merit general approval and assure him his logical high place and leadership.

Zanuck. Twentieth Century executive, and the almost fabu lous character who has been a j "squatter" for half a century in | the world » most awesome d«-*ert, Death Valiev. With characteristic eccentri city, Scotty refused to accept a penny for the rights of his story the studio said. For many years j however, Scot ty has been cre dited with having great wealth, or at least quick and easy ac cess toil. The source of this wealth long has agitated public | curiosity. One explanation has i been a supposed secret gold • lode, since Scotty habitually 'disappear* on mysterious pros pecting trips It ha* been some time sinee Scotty was in town, expressing annoyance at the difficulty of getting a SI,OOO bill changed, and exhibiting a $5,000 bill without explaining his wealth- Later, however. he hinted broadly in the course of a luncheon speech that where be got his money came under the general heading of nobody’s) business. About three weeks ago, Za nuck made a secret trip to Death Valley to see Scotty. He found him in the $1,000,000 Moorish castle which Scotty and A. M. Johnson. Chicago life insurance executive, built. There alter a parley, Scotty agreed to detail his adventures j for serene production. Sam Engel, representative of Zanuck, brought back to Holly wood a document binding the agreement. o 1 CASA CRANDE NATIONAL MONUMENT NEWS j j I rffrr —" * Mrs. Fred Rector, who has be.-n visiting with her daughter, Mrs. Palmer, the past year, left for her home in the east Tues day.— Mr. and Mrs. J.

This year 70 cents out < i every dollar of the birthday ball fund remains in the community to help out our own Infantile Pa ralysis victims to win their bat tie, and the balance got - to the National Committee for deliv ery to the President to be pro moted by him to the Commis sion for Infantile Paralysis Re search, which he will create to | widen research efforts, aimed at wiping out the disease itself, in an effort toward protecting our present and future generations against this dreaded menace. I-ast January 30, the people in every corner of the land en joyed a good deed and a good BOOK KEEPING ON THE FARM TODAY Most urban residents proba bly still think of the American farmer as an easy-going fellow, with little knowledge of or in terest in business practices and methods, who lives from the land and doesn’t involve him self in financial statements or bookkeeping systems. That picture is rapidly losing verisimilitude. The Farm Cre dit Administration recently an nounced that over a million farmers, during the past year and a half, turned in complete j financial statements when ap plying for loans. And, accord ing to the Dairymen's League News, at least a million more farmers kept such records for other reasons. Business meth ods are as much a part of the operation of a modern farm as of a factory. This is representative of a great evolutionary period in agricultural history, which be gan ten or fifteen years ago and is gathering momentum still. * The up-to-date farmer reali ! handicaps of the disease. Seventy cents of every dollar raised this year will go to aid these victims in communities raising jho mon- The other 30 cents will be turned over to the President’s Birthday Ball Commission for In fantile Paralysis Research head ed by ' Col.

They held charity balls in honor of the President’s birth day, and sent most of the net procee Is, amounting to about a million dollars, to the Warm Springs Foundation, establish ed in Georgia for the treatment of victims of infantile paralysis. Now the President has reveal ed at Warm Springs, where he was enjoying a brief rest, that he will again lend his birthday to the nation for a celebration January 3U, and that the funds raised from the parties will al so be devoted to the battle against this dread descase. Instead however, of the mon ey going to Warm Springs, 70 per cent of it will be used in the local communitii*s to pro vide for treatment of the suffer ers of the descase there. The izes that economics, finance, (monetary problems, tariff legis itlon and similar matters exert a vital influence on his own j personal affairs. He is study ing and learning, and he is keep ing books. Where his father may have gone for years with out knowing whether he was making money or losing it, he knows precisely how his farm is going. The influence of cooperative as-ociations has been particu larly potent in developing farm management along these lines. The co-ops, by'bringing spec ialized knowledge and sound methods to the administration of farm problems, have made great progress, and individual farmers are following the lead.
