Why The Atmosphere In Canada Is Not Disturbed By The Crash Of Banks Habit And The Future America BY GLENN FRANK President of the University of Wisconsin and Famous Lecturer (Copyright, 1933, for Arizona Republic) The future America the America that will emerjre from this depression will be largely determined by the relationship we are able to establish and maintain between the forces of habit and the forces of originality. Some yeas ago, in these articles, I commented somewhat as follows on these two forces: Habit is the cement that holds society together. Originality is the dynamite that blows up the cement of habit when it threatens to entomb life and to seal away from sunlight and air the root of growth. Habit is the uncrowned king that rules the world.

Custom is the crown prince that is idolized by the crowd. Together they control the race, except in hours of great crisis when men's minds become fluid and their spirits grow fearless. Originality is the rebel that challenges the kingship of habit and refuses to bow to custom as crown prince. Habit is a spiritual surrender to convention. Originality is a spiritual sedition against convention.

Habit is administrator. Originality is anarchist Habit expresses itself in dogmas. Originality expresses itself in discoveries. Originality is the gift of rare men and rare moments, and so humanity's store of originality is slender. Society is normally at war against originality.

The beasts of the jungle killed the abnormal of their kind. The barons of old waged war against all who questioned their pretensions or clutched at their power. This would be a sorry world if it were ruled exclusively by either habit or originality. With nothing but habit in the world, life would become crystallized. With nothing but originality in the world, life woulld become chaotic.

At this historic moment, however, our greatest need is for originality. The habit-bound leadership of yesterday has failed to rethink its problems in terms of new circumstances. In every field politics, economics, education, and the like the need is for original thinking and acting. i ft fit ip ipi I 1 For many years there have been comparisons between banking systems of the United States and Canada. These comparisons have been more earnest and numerous since the fall of 1930 when this country was resounding with the crash of failing banks, while all was serene with our neighbor on the north.

We learn from recent correspondence between William Walton of Buckeye, a former representative in the legislature from this county, and a former banker friend in Ottawa that the difference in the two banking systems is really much less then the difference between the human elements in the two countries upon which the administration of the systems depend. The letter from the Ottawa banker in reply to Mr. Walton, begins with a refutation of a public statement by Huey P. Long that there were nine Canadian bcnk failures in Canada last September. There has been no bank failure there in the last 12 years.

Curiously the banking law of Canada is not greatly different from that of Arizona. There is there, as here a double liability of stockholders but Canadian bankers know it will be rigidly enforced, while here it is hardly known that there is such a thing. There is a deposit guaranty system but quite different one from the kind we have in this country by which sound, careful banks are penalized to protect depositors in weak ones. The government in Canada would have to make good the deposits insolvent banks but there is, we believe, no record of its having been called upon to do so. In the first place it takes at least $250,000 to open a bank in Canada and something must be known of the character of the men who propose to open it.

There are in the whole Dominion only 12 banks, but there are numerous branch banks, as many as are needed. These arc not subsidiaries in the sense that they are "affiliates," for the evasion of the laws. They are manned by men sent out from the main banks. In another important respect the system differs. The qualification of a director of a Canadian bank differs from ours.

The director mav not be a dummy but must have a substantial, paid up stock interest in his bank. It is of record that there are American bank directors who though stockholders, have actually no real interest in their banks; they have given their notes in payment for their stock. The Canadian bank director can in no borrow money on his stock from his own bank though he may borrow from another bank to half the market value of his stock. Such loans must be reported every three months to the Canadian Hankers Association and to the department of finance at Ottawa. Only mortgage and trust companies can lend on" real estate.

Their assets must be liquid to 50 per cent of their deposits. In the Canadian system three thirgs are considered. In the order of their importance they are: First, the security of the depositors; that the double liability of the shareholders makes them doubly cautious; that, from the type of securities in which Canadian banks may invest are outlawed many securities which constitute frozen factors of banks in this country, including mortgages. It will be seen that the chief reason why bank failures do not occur in Canada is not so attributable to the superior banking laws of that country as to the superior, 'igid and constant administration of the laws, and because of the insistence that the banking of the country shall be conducted by bankers. Politics has no part in the administration of the banking system.

m. Makes an address saying the Nazis wish only to make Germany a nation of which all Germans may be less effect in causing asthma, but feathers, furs, pollen of plants and other cubstances that are breathed in through the nose become more active in causing asthmatic attacks. Dr. G. W.

who made the investigation recorded above, reports excellent results by using dilute hydrochloric acid in preventing asthmatic attacks due to food. lieginning with a few minims or t'rops he advises that the dose be gradually increased up to 20 or 3 minims three times a day. "If care is taken to remove the offending substances, especially the substances inhaled through the nose dust, pollen of plants, dandruff from furs and feathers there is an immediate improvement in appetite and a gain in weight with the use of this dilute hydrochloric acid." After three months or jnore of treatment with the hydrochloric acid, the asthmatic attacks often disappear. Remember this form of treatment A couple of years aero a research physician found that in a considerable number of children afflicted with asthma, the amount of hydrochloric acid in the stomach digestive, juice was below normal. Last year he kept the records of 20o asthmatic children of various aires, and the records also of 50 normal children.

In the children with asthma he found that the acid secretion of the stomach digestive juice was below the average normal in SO per cent of cases, whereas in the normal healthy children there were only about L'O per cent with hydrochloric acid below normal. He believes therefore that this lack of acid is a cause of the asthmatic attacks as there is not the proper digestion of protein meat, ess-s, cereals which allows the absorption into the blood of amounts of undissrested protein. It was found for instance that as the child became older, and approached the ape of puberty (14 to 16) the amount of acid in the stomach digestive juice increased and the asthmatic attacks grew less. Observations show that as the individual prows older, foods have The Elusiveness Of Meteors Rao Administered To G. B.

This enthusiasm over the return of beer will be tempered the first time somebody tries to serve it to the guests at a house party. More Truth Than Poetry By James J.

Montague Do You Remember? 3-, About all one can say about a meteor in its flight is that he saw it. He can not tell the distance of it from him or its height above the earth. He can describe in a general way the impression he received. Several years ago a meteor passed from east to west through the middle states. It was first observed in Eastern Ohio.

It was not observed west of a point in Iowa. Generally it must have resembled the meteor which was seen at various points in the Southwest on Friday night. The first description which we heard of the former meteor was that of a man who said it was about 60 feet above the surface of the earth and that it passed between him and a mill which stood on an eminence a quarter of a mile north of him. When between him and the mill it broke into three pieces with a terrible explosion. It was almost exactly similarly described, even to the explosion, by several persons who were half a dozen miles north of the first witness.

The meteor had passed still north of them. The next day's daily papers arrived. The Cincinnati papers described the meteor exactly as it had been described by the witness already mentioned. The meteor had passed on the north. The description given by the Cleveland papers was the same with a single exception.

The meteor had passed on the south of Cleveland. Thus it was settled that the flying mass had a path somewhere between the two cities, a distance of something more than 300 miles. Instead of being 60 feet above the earth's surface, it was probably-many miles. The London Post last Saturday, taking George Reman! Shaw for once seriously, administered a rebuke which had long: been due him. No reflection was cast upon Shaw's brilliancy but rather upon his churlishness which we think is largely assumed and not a part of him as the gfuffness of Lord Tenny-s-on was.

Shaw is an Irishman and the Irish are seldom churlish. Formerly Shaw was not, but in recent years, as the Tost points out, he has descended to capitalizing his gruffness. He became a common scold, for the sake of scolding. He assumes grotesque positions for the purpose of attracting attention. He is a spoiled youth in the 70's; he is like a boy whose parents have unwisely applauded some act denoting precocity, whereupon an abnormal appetite for applause was stimulated.

Though Shaw has become a great entertainer, he is little more than that. He has not been a great contributor to the sum of human knowledge and thought. Gruffness is a part of his stock in trade. Those who approach him seriously receive rebuff instead of information. A characteristic reply by Shaw to a young man who once wrote him for advice was, "Instead of wasting your time and mine in this matter you'd better be teaching your grandmother to milk ducks." It may be assumed that the youitg man did not make this correspondence public but that Shaw himself let the world know of this witticism.

Whatever entertainment it may have afforded Shaw's public, it must have caused the your.g man some pain and humiliation. It may be said of Shaw that his bark is worse than his bite. Those who have had personal contact with him have found a very pleasant and interesting gentleman. His shafts are not directed at individuals but at humanity in the mass. His is the role of Puck.

Perhaps humanity deserves what Shaw gives it. Q. What was the inception of the American Philosophical Society? R. S. A.

This society which still continues to conduct sessions in the hall it has occupied since 1787. was formed at the suggestion of Benjamin Franklin. Shortly after coming to Philadelphia, Franklin formed the famous Junto whose members met weekly, as he said, "to improve our understand ings." That was in 1727. In 1743 Franklin, to increase the range of discussion, proposed the formation of a larger society that would correspond with the learned societies of Europe. On that suggestion the American Philosophical Society was formed.

Q. Should cream be served with after-dinner coffee? N. R. A. A hostess may do as she chooses.

It seems more hospitable to offer cream and loaf sugar after the coffee is served, since some people find black coffee unpalatable. Q. When was an Episcopalian president last in the White House? E. C. S.

A. Before the present incumbent. President Chester A. Arthur was the most recent. Other Episcopalians who have been president are Washington, Madison, Monroe, Gen.

W. II. Harrison, Tyler, Taylor and Pierce. C. What is a marline spike used for? C.

W. A. It is a piece of iron tapering to a point, used as a lever in marling or binding the ends of a rope, or for opening or separating a rope in splicing. Q. What was pemmican made of? N.

B. N. A. This American Indian food was made of lean meat, fat and sometimes, fruit; it was often dried, pounded and pressed into cakes. Q.

What kind of gas does a small tungsten electric bulb contain? J. A. The bureau of standards says that small tungsten lamps of the ordinary styles are called vacuum lamps, the bulbs being exhausted to a high vacuum and then refilled with a mixture of argon and nitrogen in different proportions. Q. How many states have ratified the child labor amendment? C.

O'N. A. Six Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Montana and Wisconsin. Q. When did Copernicus live? C.

R. A. This Polish astronomer was born in 1473 and died in 1543. It was Copernicus who reversed the universal belief that the earth had no motion. Through observations that took a lifetime, he reached the conclusion that the earth rotates upon its axis and with the other planets revolves around the sun.

Q. When a formula for whitewash calls for casein, can milk be substituted? T. B. A. Skimmed milk may be 'used instead of casein and water.

It is not as effective, but produces a better result than a whitewash with no substitute for the casein. Q. What was Woodrow Wilson's definition of the qualities needed for a ruler? F. L. A.

once said that the eizht horses that draw the triumphal chariot of every ruler and leader of free men are force of character, readiness of resources, clearness vision, grasp of intellect, courage of conviction, earnestness of purpose, instinct and capacity for leadership. Q. Why is a barcarole so called? M. G. A.

Barcamolo is Italian, meaning a boatman. Barcarole is a song sung by Venetian boatmen as they row their gondolas. FIXING THE BLAME King Solomon's wisdom, if practiced today, "Would relieve us of worry and fret, lie set forth the truth in a shrewd snappy way Which ought to be hard to forget. He composed many sapient, neatly turned saws Kor the folks of the future to quote, But only a few of them know who he was, And don't give a rap what he wrote. The precepts of Socrates, made long ago, If carefully followed today.

Would help make an end of our trouble and woe And drive our afflictions away. But stop any man whom you meet on the street And I think it may give you a ehock To find that nine persons in ten you will meet Will ask you, "Who is this old Soc?" Go back to Confucius: that old fellow knew How a man might attain peace of mind; His pleasures were many, his worries were few. For he'd carefully studied mankind. Jf we only would heed the sagacious old Chink. And study that wisdom of his.

We'd have fewer distractions to drive us to drink, But few of us know what it is. 20 Years Ago: Mar. 28, 1913 John D. Grable, a high school senior, respected and beloved by all who knew him, died at his home on East Pierce street yesterday morning. His untimely end was a result of being hit by a pitched ball in a game between the high school and the Indians the day before.

The story of his triumph in the game was hardly told before his friends were startled by the news of the price he had paid, and yesterday the students who had borne him from the field of victory on their shoulders carried his body through crowds of mourners toward its last resting place. A memorial service was held in the high school auditorium where the students listened to a tribute to the sterling qualities of their friend. The speakers were Professor Stabler, Stay-ton Dorris and Walter M'Lemore. Assistant County Attorney Clyde M. Gandy learned through The Republican that his home at Lakeside, was under water.

It is true that it is not his home now but he still owns it. Hid regret at learning that he was a flood victim was considerably modified by the circumstance that he was not in the house at the time it was submerged, or anywhere in the vicinity. The senate yesterday held a caucus on the question of the strike of the clerks and attaches of the senate the night before. The whole matter was gone into and a final agreement was reached between the parties that the attaches will work when necessary. It was shown that the senate has never agreed to pay a regular rate for eight hours but for a legislative day.

It is understood that a plan will be worked out that an arrangement will be made so that none of the attaches will have to work more than eight hours. Phoenix chapter No. 5 of the Eastern Star held a special meeting yesterday afternoon and after a discussion of the flood situation in Ohio and Indiana voted a subscription of $25 for The Republican's relief fund. Charles Korrick of the New York store announces that ten per cent of the gross proceeds of his store next Saturday will be devoted to the relief of the fire and flood sufferers of the midwestern states. A similar relief fund wa3 raised by the store for the San Francisco earthquake and fire sufferers seven years ago.

Announcement is made of the engagement of Miss Ruth Dorris, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Dorris, to Sidney Boddinghouse.

40 Years Ago: Mar. 28, 1893 Articles of incorporation of the Volcanic Copper company were filed in the office of the county recorder yesterday. The incorporators are Benjamin E. Lower, Robert Hunter, Alfred Barber, of Phoenix, and George Lower, George Hunter and Colney Barber of Decatur, Ills. Frank Daniels and his company in his phunnypharce, "Dr.

Cupid," bored an audience to the queen's taste at the opera house last night. Such was the judgment of the gallery gods as they hied themselves to a drug store after ths show to take slow poison to relieve them of the intense suffering inflicted upon them by the timeworn chestnuts and alleged funny sayings of the rankest combination that ever infested Phoenix. The music was of the variety to which the historical cow expired. The inhabitants of Montezuma street were edified last night by the spectacle of a Chines-, cook in wild pursuit of a recreant boarder. The Chinaman wa3 brandishing a club but the nimbleness of foot of the no-cash boarder, though well dressed, carried him out of range of the pursuer.

J. W. Blythe, a late resident of Fulton, is in the city for the purpose of opening up an extensive drygoods stock. Mr. Blythe is well known by many Phoenix business men who are pleased to welcome him to their ranks.

He has not yet decided upon a location. The little child of A. P. Walbridge who has been ill of typhoid fever for the last three weeks, late last night was hovering between life and death and it was feared that it would not live until morning. Sheriff Murphy yesterday received a letter from Ed Hill requesting him to turn over to Si Blevins certain tides which in his hurry he overlooked in his excitement which attended his recent departure from the county jail- Richard Stewart has again begun Spanish teaching and translating with offices with Judge Kincaid.

Judge Fitzgerald, an old timef in Arizona, and former editor of the Clifton Clarion, is pending a few days in Phoenix. R. H. Greene was called east on Sunday night by a telegram informing him of the serious illness of his mother. Among the more prominent visitors in the city now is S.

C. Bagg, the editor of the Tombstone Prospector and its more lugubrious associate, the Ep- itaph- In r.17 Americans faced a foreign foe and won. If they are defeated now it will rot be by a foreign foe but by their lack of confidence in themselves. Jn spite of the sages who dwelt in the past To show us the way to the right. Despite the wisdom the old birds amassed We are still in a terrible plight.

Today on the things that we cherished the most We are rapidly losing our hold. For on profitless pleasures we've all been engrossed; But we can't say we haven't been told: It is said that Babe Ruth refused a salary offer of 50,000, which reminds vis again that a lot of folks back in 1929 refased to sell U. S. Steel at 250. Could the New Jersey man who was discovered to possess three wives be accused of hoarding? TEMPORARY IMMUNITY Well, for a while anyway, Europe won't trv to borrow anv more money over here.

Anyhow we don't hear so many mammy songs about the fields of cotton as we did before the commodity went down to a rrickel a pound. PROBLEM We are wondering what kind of crat will turn up next. It is said that the speakeasies in New York are reopened and afe willing to exchange liquid assets for scrip. Some of our professional prison reformers won't be satisfied until each convict is provided with a chisel, a steel drill and a 12 cylinder car for a quick get-away. The 1929 millionaire who proudly announced that he started business on a shoestring has now ended that way.

NO EMBARRASSING QUESTIONS This year, anyway, the government wlU probably believe you when you tell it how much your income was. (Copyright, 193S, for Arizona Republic).
