Mass.— The of action and reaction ap- U) banks as to every By Sophie Kenr SUSTAINING MEMBER REPORTERS "IN CONTEMPT" That long-continued deadlock in Danville. Ky.. between two reporters who insisted on protecting a news confidence and the police judge who insisted on their betraying the source of their information, had its ludicroous side, but the serious side was dominant ' The police judge fined and imprisoned the young men every day for weeks, in an effort to wear them «iut and subdue them to his will. He did this under tie familiar device known as "contempt of court." a. phrase of our American court system which makes * judicial officer both judge and jury for the alleged offense. The nature of such a charge is lometimes so vague, and the judge's discretion is so broad, that it may be difficult to tell in some cases •whether the judge is swayed more by law and reason, or by his personal inclinations. Possibly the "contempt of court" prerogative needs overhauling. The- reporters were courteous but stubborn, it has always been the nature of American citizens to be stubborn in the assertion of what they conceive to be their civic rights. Altho the reporters were finally discharged, on the ground that the whole case wa« closed and consequently their refusal to testify no longer mattered, the serious problem involved in the contempt case is of interest to the entire American press and to the entire nation. It the reporters' plea of immunity from forced betrayal of news confidence constitutional or unconstitutional? Freedom of the press may be involved her* u much M it was thought to be under NRA plans, or more. This question should be determined by a court of high jurisdiction. each other's heels like cars on a busy corner, the talk back and forth of following and crossing crall —all of them unseen in the grayn-vs—b'votm 1 * positively thrilling.

Would it take superhuman ingenuity to . er. the merchant, the stock gambler. and the manufacturer has h:.d to take his licking. During the past thrfe years our bank'iig system has gone thru a period of drastic housecleaning. The "good old days" are gone— at least temporarily. My oiily fear is that today banks may be swinging too far to the conservative side. Strong Bond Market Big Factor Generally spea!:i.;:;. our entire banking structure is in a far out the sheet of rules alone with the pla'.e? BIGGER CCC The ranks of the Civilian Conservation corps are at their highest membership. During the week of Aug. 6 enrollment reached 360,000. From these young workers weekly remittances of ?22 to $25 are going home to 315,000 families, lightening the relief load on many local agencies. Along with the news of increased enrollment in the CCC goes the good news that more "graduates" of the camps are finding places in industry. In May 10,100 returned to private jobs. In June 11,650 were placed. July figures are not yet available, but indications are they will show a steady gain. Since last October nearly 88,000 have thus obtained outside employment. -: The work being done by the young men in the CCC camps is valuable. The full story has not yet been told, but serial chapters have been interesting and reassuring. Healthy activity, physical and mental; outdoor life; useful work, and earned money are great antidotes to the evils of idleness and worry which confronted most of these young fellows. DAILY PATRIOTISM When President Roosevelt spoke ai the rvrcises in honor of the Mayo Brothers ai Rochester. Minn., he represented a grateful nation. Some of bis words carried a message to fellow-citizens as well as a tribute to the famous surgeons and 'heir lone-established clinic. Said Mr. Roosevelt: "Your true distinction is in the simple fact devise a few simple signals which wyuid mean t'"-'i stronger position today than a same thing to every driver everywhere and 'o hand I year ago. First among the factors responsible for this improvement are the courageous measures taken by the presid'.u as he assumed office in March. 1903. Next is tl.e very strong bond market. Not only should the portifolios of all banks be in far better condition today than last .Uir.iift. but the outlook is for continued strength in high-grade investments. Third. the real estate situation is gradually being ir;ned out. Even these that i properties which havs actually Re P° rt i you have put men's seris of brotherhood anil inter- j written off may irake a surprising i come-back.

"Democracy looks to the day when these virtues (courage and unselfish public service) will be required of those who serve the public officially and unofficially. H has shown the to all of us. "You whom we honor today rendered the highest form of patriotic service during the battles of the World war, but, even more than that, you deserve the nation's thanks for the national service that you have rendered thruout your lives.'' It is well to call attention often to the truth that patriotism is a virtue of many forms of expression and needed every day in the nation's life. We make a mistake when we limit it to loyalty and service of a military nature in time of war. gr'e-uer liquiditv still i of the fai!

And he- land this better public sentimert and actual improvement in conditions is the strong sappo-t i-r the RFC. In spite of the fact that the trend toward continues, bank earnings have in many cases began to iuc.'oase. This is due to a very rigiu control of costs ,;r.d to lower payments to depositors. Bank rtncks look far rare attractive tday than a year ago. but any real advance in their quotations will depend upon the proper eniFloymert of their idle credit reserves. Commercial Loan;, Still Declining The deposit and loan situation is very interesting. For many months, demand deposits have | have been rising steadily, while commercial loans have been decreasing with enithi tegulani:. Today total demand dsposns are $2,157.000.000 in execs? of a vear ago. while loans are Si!".000.000 less ihan last August. This is not as it especially wit'i intor- sucli a Some Ames school U-acheis have bet n disturbed over the fact that a recent legal publication of the financial report of the Ames public schools indicated their salaries w-ete considerably higher than thty actually arc. Superintendent M. t!- 1'avis stated Friday. The apparent discrepancy is wholly explained by the change in method of paying the teachers, adopted at the rcqueat of the teachers, one year ago. The new plan provides for pay. ing them each month one-twelfth of their annual salary instead of one-ninth as was formerly the custom, lu ma kin; ( 'e change, it was necessary to carry the deferred payments over into the following fiscal year's records, which therefore made last year's salary budget appear much huger than actually was the case. Mr. Davis said. The uu'ivf-payrnent plan was asked by the teachers in order that some reserve for summer months would be established. i Grant Chapman In j Charge of State \ Camp This Season I j Grant I'hapman. extension as- j sistant professor of farm crops and soils and director of campus tours at Iowa State college, is to direct the farm bureau camp at. the Iowa state fair August 22 to 31.
