The swimmers, incidentally, are following the lead of their 1960 Olympic counterparts, who won 11 of the United States' 34 gold medals, compared with nine by the highly publicized track squad. Ottawa Dragsters Fare Well U.S. Swim Team Shines In Pan Am SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP)-The United States' young swimmers rapidly becoming this country's leading gold collectors, have put together a near-perfect performance in their first four finals of the Pan-American Games. The youthful Yanks finished one- two in three of the swimming finals Tuesday, one-three in the other, smashed three games records and equalled another one in wiping away the gloom that had followed (he humiliating 13-1 baseball loss to Cuba on Sunday. The brilliant performance boosted the United States gold medal total to 10 going into the fifth day of activity today. No other coun- try'has more than a single gold medal. The United States' strong Ottawa was well represented at the opening of the new Mid-National Drag Strip at Valley Center Sunday. In this event that drew racing machines from all over the Midwest and approximately 20,000 "drag fans" were entered Rodney Ruthetron, Dave McBride, Jack Carrow, Bob Hartpence and Louis Ferns, all Ottawans. McBride came home with the top trophy in A-Stock class as he put his '409' 1963 Chevrolet thru the quarter in 13.80 with a top speed of 104.52. In this same class Ruthetron posted the day's next best time with a 14.01. Carrow collected the winner's hardware in C-Gas, running his 1959 El Camino Chevrolet down the blacktop in 13.79. At the end of the day a trophy for Hartpence in E-Stock was pending investigation of a contender who allegedly was entered in the class illegally. Ferns registered the day's best time in B-Sportsman with a 13.99 but was eliminated due to a rules technicality. TRUCKING Livestock & General FREIGHT Local or Long Distance ORREN ALTIG Ph.

By W. B. DeVilbist EARLY DAY STREET SCENE - Here alongside the Peoples National Bank a traveling movie crew sets up to show "The Great Train Robbery." During my years in Franklin County the banks have gone through periods of what is known as hard times. It is interesting to note that no Ottawa bank has ever failed. All have continued to serve this community. Probably accounting for this is the fact that the banks of this community have been conservative, run by men who have always applied sound principles of banking. There have been times, however, when our business has been troubled and disturbed. One of the earliest of these was the currency shortage of 1907. This was caused when a number of wealthy eastern investors withdrew their money from circulation, placed it in safety deposit vaults and attempted to corner the currency market. The National Banking Department put out an order limiting the amount of currency withdrawal from banks to $50 per day until the matter could be straightened out. I remember one man in Ottawa ... his relatives still live here . . . who was worried about his account. Four or five days in a row he sent his son over to the bank to withdraw the maximum, $00. Finally, Mr. W. B. Kiler, our cashier, said that if this depositor was so worried, he should write a check for the balance of his account and we would pay him all he had in the bank. That is what happened. A few days later he came back and deposited his money again. Another depositor, a real estate man, was also worried about the currency shortage. But when I took him back to the vault and showed him we had plenty of money there, he quit worrying. The currency shortage lasted only a short time until the big investors gave up their attempt to corner the market. However, the shortage led to the Federal Reserve act of 1913 which establish the Federal Reserve System. The Federal Reserve Board now controls the flow of currency and money shortages are not one of our problems any longer. One thing that did occur during the shortage was that we urged people to do business, pay bills and operate on their checking accounts. This led to the increased use of checking accounts. People have learned checks can now be used as a medium of exchange the same as currency. Meet Your Friends at "The Friendly Bank" MEMBER F.D.I.C. SALE! 4 "" 8 ONLY!
