A.tjfspatch on this page yesterday said that the Nazi * Ifttfed >io* ",dUst. the Old Testament and erect in its stead B i»«#AB and fairy tales of Germany." -<*) This- sounds Bank Deposits to Guaranteed by New Corporation Roosevelt Endorse* Latest Banking Bill by Glass , and Steagall 1/2 BILLION CAPITAL To Levy */ 4 . % Tax on Deposits in Federal Reserve Banks WASHINGTON— ( AP ) — Bearing tacit administration approval of its principal, a Sweeping bank reform meas- ;p based on the Glass bank- bill and providing for a ^Billion-dollar corporation to guarantee Federal Reserve member bank deposits 100 per cent will be submitted to congress next week. Announcement of the proposal was made by Chairman StcnRall of the house banking committee after u conference with President Roosevelt, As he spoke, n senate banking subcommittee tentatively was drafting the measure, which .will be sponsored jointly by Senator Glass, Democrat, Virginia, and the Alabama Democrat. "You man say," Steagall said, "that the proposal's principal is understood to have the approval of the administration." Not a Guarantee. "This bill is not in any sense a gov. crnment guarantee plan," he added, explaining that the 2-billion corporation would be formed with an initial capital ;of, '^-billion, along the in^ of ,S«nato* Qlass' proposal which died in ^he last 'Congress. 'His bill c«tl6d ^or../cr,eationi^ a corporation, Hcthisttc. Hardly so. Christians draw a sharp line between the Old and the New Testament. The former is the Jewish record of the pagan world. It Li the New Testament portion of the Bible on which the Christian faith Is founded. But the proposal IS revolutionary. Even If the Old Testament had no value as a forerunner to the Christian Bible, still the record of Earth's creation as It to written in Genesis, and the stories of Solomon, David and the rest, would be something every child should have to read. XXX Hitler's party thinks Germany would be better off forgetting the ancient Jewish heroes and remembering her own Thor (or Donar), the Thunder God, known as The Hammerer. The German legends are thrilling, and wholesome. They teach valor and justice—as the legends of all nations do. But there is no more rhyme or reason for Germany to tear up the Old Testament, than for Americans to replace it with the legends of her native Indians. All legends are worth knowing. But the Old Testament, that has furnished allusions and phrases to the Christian world for 2,000 years, is something civilized men can't do without. Chapman Given Up to El Dorado by Maxey Saturday Van Buren Sheriff Surrenders Him for Smackover Bank Robbery HEMPSTEA"D LOSES )esperado Apparently Won't Be Tried for Hope Robbery EL DORADO, Ark.—(/P)— Charles .Chapman, "depres- iori despei-ado" for whom a sharp fight.,-had been waged jy Hempstead county officers ;o return him to that county 'or the $24,000 robbery of the ?irst National bank of Hope, was surrendered to Union county Saturday morning by Sheriff Av D. Maxey of Craw- .., , to' liquidate closed' fcanks. As In the Steagall guarantee bank I deposit bill that passed the house and (failed in the senate in the last con- jgress, the initial capital of %-billion (would bo 'raised by requiring Federal vc banks to subscribe 150 millions lof their surplus while the Treasury {paid 150 millions, representing a part |of the earnings of the Federal Rc- banks paid in lieu of franchise es. The remaining 200 millions _-,iuld come from a levy of one-fourth lot one per cent on deposits in Federal I Reserve banks. Stcagall said that while he nnd Glass (were agreed in principle on the pro- Ippsal, there were many provisions still {unsettled .particularly relating to {branch banking. He indicated that i the wishes of President Roosevelt will Ibe sought on the measure before any [final congressional action is taken. Are in Agreement "Senator Gloss and I have been in [conference several weeks considering fa banking bill, which has been agreed I upon in principle but in not all dc| tails." Steagall said. "H will have i regulatory provisions!; separate affiliates from batiks in about two years; and will separate investment bank- I ing from commercial banks. It will re- I quire a higher minimum capital ^for | national banks, increasing it from $25,[000 to $50,000. It will provide for dis- j missal of bank officials who for any [ cause are found unfit to serve." I Steagall said the measure also would ^embrace a plan for the guarantee of deposits along the lines of his , earlier bill. The measure will provide, he said, for frequent examination and inspects tion of banks and for their regulation, and would permit the corporation to "get rid of state banks at any time." - : - , • • • -Teacher Gets Life in Triple Murder Bedford Sentenced Within 24 Hours After Michigan Crime GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-(/P)-A schoolmaster Friday was sentenced to life imprisonment at hard labor, less than 24 hours after he had slain, in a mad fenzy, three members of a family who shared his home.

Judge Bush;idi.d not reveal what steps- he> would, take/, in .removing Chapman to Hempstead county, but it was believed he would confer with Prosecuting Attorney Millard Alford before putting his latest plans in motion. Sheriff A. D. Maxey of Crawford county, moved back into Van Buren Friday afternoon with Chapman, determined to hold the accused bank robber for "the highest bidder." Chapman's whereabouts were a mystery for two days after Maxey took him from the state penitentiary, where he had been held for safekeeping, a few hours . before Hempstead county officers, armed with a court order from Judge Bush, arrived in Little Rock to get him. Maxey, returning Friday afternoon to Van Buren, reluctantly admitted he returned Chapman to Crawford county. At first he refused to reveal where Chapman was being held. "I don't want them to know," lie said, "they might try to take him away from me again." Maxcys informed of Circuit Judge Bush's statement that he was determined to have Chapman returned to Hempsead county for trial, said: "The next move is up to Hempstead officers."
