Laff-A-Day PLAINVILLE, Kan. (AP)-Tom Bemis is a rancher who collects antique porcelain plaques. Bemis, of the U-Bar Ranch here, has collected porcelains for 17 years and now owns 34. His collection began with a plaque he found in, a Denver pawnshop. He had it for five years before he found out much about the history of these plaques. Then an art dealer gave him some information. The rest he picked up through research. Porcelain plaques reached their peak of popularity between 1830 and 1860, he found. Artists of that time would copy works of the masters, painting them on porcelain plaques. Then the porcelain factories would glaze and fire them. One of the best known pieces Bemis owns is "The Polish Nobleman." The original canvas, by Rembrandt, hangs in the National Art Gallery in Washington, D. C. The plaques the heavy and when framed present a problem in hanging. From time to time Bemis changes the plaques he has on display at his home. Usually six are displayed at a time. His only complaint about his hobby is: "I am running out of space to store them, when they can't be displayed. It would seem I need a larger house or more storage space. Certainly, I couldn't part with any of them."

CENTURY OF .COMMER.CIAL, HANKEESTG Healthy competition increases service and cuts costs. It has to be that way. When a man must get out and fight for customers, he will do more for them and he will keep prices as low as he possibly can. Otherwise, his competitors will drive him out of business. That's why Abraham Lincoln did future generations such a favor when he signed the National Currency Act on February 25, 1863. That Act standardized the Nation's currency and k established Federally-chartered hanks. However, the Act did not establish a Federal monopoly of banking. Instead, state-chartered banks continued to do business in competition with National banks and with each other. Thus, the American "dual banking system" was born. Freed| from strangling monopoly, full-service banks could (and did)*, broaden their range of inexpensive services until they became] today's "financial supermarkets." Millions of Americans took advantage of these services. They opened checking accounts (a total of 60 million by 1963), savings accounts, used bank money for every conceivable purpose. Much of today's tidal wave o< prosperity comes from the stability of banks and the ready! availability of bank money. Yes sir, Mr. Lincoln and his congress really started something. Most people are benefitting from his foresight. If you're not one of them, here's a suggestion: I mv.stor.s M I. > H T ( , A i , t When Money Matters... see your * Home Town Kansas Banker
