.''AGE BfX (AKKI West Welcomes Return of Silver Dollar -11 But Abandoned Mining Communities See Promise Tof Comeback. NE/t Service 'Hard-money" again will clink in terlean pockets. Stacks of •'iron" . lars ciice more will be displayed .hind bank wickets. Silver is back. 'So was written another chapter In a history '.hat is older than the Bible, a long and dramatic story, replete wits color and interest, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a proclamation lor rc- Bionetizatlcn of silver, ratifying the (London agreement. Life comes again to the ghost 'towns of the west. On the gaunt, •scarred hillsides or Nevada, there 'is bustle and new endeavor, and battered prospectors, whose hope Is undying, once more roam the trails, mulling over their dreams oj a-strike that means fortune. Down th2 streets of crazy, rccl- .ing buildings, where only packrats lhave had their habitations, activity pulses, and In Tonopah and !other towns wlilch have clung to .existence there is dancing on the 'bar and backslapping and wild predictions of prosperity. ALL. IS OFT1MISSI Even ' the ravaged hills lltat •horn down on Central City, a 'Colorado sliver boom town that has held to a slender thread of life 'since the o!d bonanza days, seem ,to smile. Central City never gave iup. Optimism-plus has kept It alive. In the days far gone, its boardwalks resounded to the clatter ot 20,000 pairs of feet, and money camp over Ihe bars in bucketsful. It was queen of the mountains till catastrophe struck and silver died. "But the town has endured, large- .ly through the sentimental help of Denver bld-llmers, who knew it In Its day of glcry. There was an opera house there, where the greatest actors of the eta trod the boards. And when the boom broke and lean days came, Denver still was loyal to Its little protege. A new opera house was built when the old one burned and the custom of a great annual pluy was' maintained, with stars brought to the scene through the generosity of Denver people who never forgol. And Central City makes the mountains ring with its shouts of rejoicing at the comeback of silver HOPES RUN TOO HIGH But hopes arc extravagant against cold reality.' In th e vMtNscheme of national recovery, where Ihe talk is •m billions, the amount Involved in Iremonetlzaticn of silver seems al- Imost Infinitesimal. I For a four-year period, the Prcs- llclent directs the Treasury to pur- Ichasc 24,000,000 ounces of silver an- Inually, practically the entire oul- IPut of American mines. I r'or this silver, Die price is fixed |ai 64 1-2 cents an ounce, 19 cents labove the prevailing market price I at the time of the proclamation IThc most lhal can be coined out lot Treasury • purchases will bi I about $1,300,000 a,monlh.
