Young, the bank examiner now in charge of the inslitu- titn, and by bank employes, has revealed an apparent shortage of approximately $5fl,000, although Scott and Shipman, the employes involved, have at no time admitted to knowledge of more than $37,800 ff this.

' Citing figures to show middle western manufacturing plants -had decreased from 55,968 in 1918 to 37,147 in 1927, Hurley ascribed this loss in the inability of Mississippi valley products to compete with water-borne" manufacturing of other sections.

The aldermen directed the chief of police at the last council session to order taxi o'perulors to refrain from using the streets as parkin? places and business stands, particularly mentioning "tax! •corner" at Main and Second streets. Chief Goodwin ordered • taxi drivers to vacate the corner and they did for a day or two but then returned upon advice of Claude P. Cooper, lawyer. Capt. Ivy W.
