These dollars went into 11 10 ImiKis of all coils of people. [inl they are still in cxLsti'nrc, v:li;' iircn't they .spending them now? That's 11 good question. I/'i's follow one of those clclhm. Uncle Sain Imtuls it to Jchn .Kiue for relief. Jones ::;jr:-mls it at the procery. The grocer lian'Js it to George, who works for him. GIHM-SL spends it at the drug store. Tin' druggist bus's cotton bandages with it,. The rotten bandage man bti^s cotton cloth. The cotton te- r til' man buys raw cotton. The rc-lto'i farmer pays it to his hired hand. The hired hand bnvs a shirt. And so it goes, on itn;l on. from , \vorkei 1 to store, from slore la far ' tory, from factory to worker, to | faincr.

Therefore, let us suuposc this dollar j finally got Into the hands of Brown who is a saver. He does not want to spend the dollar, but he is willing to invest it. That is. he is willinz to lend it to Mr. Smith who wants to put up a house. Now while 1'p is looking around for a borrower the dollar is idle. But finally Mr. Smith comes along and borrows that dollar—nloii-j with others—to build a house. Now the dollar Is back again at work, because Smith pays it to a carpenter who takes it to a' store and so' on—until it comes into,: the bands'.of another stiver. Hnioaned Savings Stagnate liusinrss But maybe Mr. Brown, this firsf saver of ours, puts his money in bank—in a savings bank or a commercial bunk. He does not want If risk it himself and ht> prefers tr leave it. in the bank. But the ban! is willing to invest it or lem it fio the bank lends the dollar to Mr Smith to build a house. The resul will be the same. Now at this point you have t remember two things. One is tha if Brown or I.Ue hank is umvillm for any reason 'lo invest the dnlli or lend it to Mr. Smith, then Ih dollar remains idle. Us snendin career is ended as eomulutelv :>s it had "jono into a tin bo^:. And Ih is what has luiiponcd lo many < these dollars. Thev are in the Imu of men ami of banks who are ui willing nr im?hie to lend them ( invest them. Hence they are .-1 dollars—'.liev are out of cirr.i tion—lh"V are non-existent so far as suending is concerned. The second thing you have to re member Is that, sooner or late' every dollar comes into the hand 1 of a wcr. it mav hanpen quicklv It may tnkc months, or even years But in the end every dollar head- into such ownership. And that v what, is hapuening now. These relief and recovery dollars are slowly pllini up into the hands of thosr who'do not wish for various per- fccllv good reasons to spend them. .10-1 iieiicc they fire becoming sterilized. Ml' How Borrowings Get- "Frozen" This Is but part ol the story. The other part is almost loo complicated to explain very quickly. All ol these dollars paid out by Uncle Sam on relief were borrowed froir the banks. Let's follow one: Uncle Sam borrows a dollar froir the bank. This is done by opening nn account in the bank for Uncle Sam and lending him the dollar The bank civcs Uncle Sam a rccon of a deposit of n dollar, just in til' same wav as if von borrowed Ih dollar. Thus a deposit is createc The bank holds Unnle Sara's noli Then Uncle Snm gives the mono to Smith on relief. Smith spends at the store. The stovekeeper de posits the dollar. The dollar imve around a great deal, but what reall happens is that it nrn'es frru bank to bank. Finally one day the bank drelcl merely cancels his deposit ac- unt to tile extent of a dollar. In licr words, one dollar of deposit oney is cancelled. The total deposits of the country •e reduced by ihut. cancelled dollar. Rabbi Pollack Will Speak At Memphi: Rabbi Herman Pollack of Ih Temple.
