Everyone who knows anything about the bank has felt nil along that the condition of the First National was such that authority to reopen could scarcely be refused. Nevertheless it is gratifying to have doubt and worry over the matter eliminated. The closing of a bank is not it nml- teu of concern merely to the stockholders nnd patrons of the institution affected. They suffer the most, of course, but the whole community, including men and women who may never havj seen tho inside of that or any other bank, also suffer. They luive suffered here during the weeks when hundreds of thousands of dollars have been tied up in the First National, with the ultimate fate of the institution subject to at least a measure of doubt. They will all bsnefit from the reopening, which may be anticipated as the lirst nnd one •of the most important steps toward a return to normal business conditions here. Every resident of Blythcville owes appreciation to the officers and directors of the First National for the successful fight they have mude to save the bank. They and many patrons of the bank have mads substantial sacrifices to give the institution u cash position adequate to remove, the .slightest elenioiTrbTi'-isk from its reopening. The raising within a few weeks of more than $150,000 cash among residents of •this community notes the bank held was an impressive achievement, only accomplished by putting the future of the institution ahead of vital personal considerations. 77ie Dtalh Toll Rises Still America':; aulomubile fntality goes up. In 1930, according to figures jusl issued by the National Safety Council, 32,500 Amsricans were killed in traffic accidents. And even this figure is not quite complete, for it represents OUT OUR WAY atalislics gathered in only 32 slaies, covering about 75 per cent of th; wintry's population. The death roll,'- quenlly, was somewhat higher. The one gleam of hope lies in the fact that the rat: of increase v.-a- I-iv:- er than usual—thn smallest, numvri- cally, for any year since 1020, with tho exception of 192'!.
