It is not necessary to say that a city of Helena's size caipiot get along without a bank. There nre oilier ccinimmiti?s anil countiis In Arkansas where the closing of banks has the people without, the facilities of Hit? sort which they need. Their situation should be kept in mtml by Ills legislature. In revising llio banking laws of the stale there arc tv.-o ends to be kept in view. Such measures as arc clearly needed to tlivov.- mure safeguards nrcur.;! the money of depositors should be enacted.

The participation of such men Is essential if Arkansas is to have .(he number mirl kind of banks required to provide the peov:'.'.! with adequate tar.Wnj facilities. A directorship in a bank represents service to the institution, to the business life of a community and to the community Itself rather than fhiiuictnl reward for the director. Such a position Involves a heavy responsibility and It mav demand sacrifice of time from a dlrt'jior's ov.n , alTalrs So. while insisting on rear.onnb'c ai;d practical safeguards, let us bs sure that ivc do nnt hung so heavy and to sharp n v.vord over all liiiik directors' chairs that the right sort of men can not, be induced to fill them. --Arkansas Gazette. influen/a, and oJ . pr'sjurs In toll that '! rcprciontcd i)y modern younu women, ixwrly nourished and In- : sufficiently dressed. | Whether or not excessive sino;<- :\Z of clgarcts is als') o factor 15 auotl-ijr question, although Dr. Wolff Prcurjentlinl is convinced thai oxcssflve smt.kinif and Insuf- sleep are also concerned.
