Qur Unstable Dollar An interesting sidelight on whnt has ; happened to us in the past three years is .given by the Pine Bluff Commercial in ,an editorial pointing out that many of '• those who had their money in banks which fuller! are actually better .off than those who had theirs in scctii'- "Hies, real estate or in some business ; venture. The Commercial takes the case of the defunct National Bank of Arkan&»«, of Pine Bluff, which it says will probably pay depositors about sixty cents on the dollar, and asks how many other investments are now worth sixty per cent of what was put into them in _ 1928 or 1929. The answer of course is that virtually no common- stocks, no real estate, and few enough investments of other kinds arc now worth 00 per cent or anywhere near it, dollars and cents, of their value before'the famous Hoover boom of 1929 turned into the greatest collapse in history. And hot only is the depositor in a defunct bank who recovers GO per cent of his investment relatively no worse oft' than most other investors. His actual wealth, in terms of what it will buy, is as great now ns it ever was. The sixty cents he has today will buy as much or more food, clothing or land as would his dollar four years ago. All of this may appear, to be'inter- . esting but not .'impoitnnt. Certainly .it affords slim comfort lo the poor ; fellow who had his money in a bank : that, lav ivom paying sixty per cent, has paid ten per cent, five per cent, or .nothing at all, as has been the case with a^ great many in'Arkansas. . • , It seems to us, however, that it does suggest that many -of our cur. : . rent difficulties had their origin in .^. v ..the failure of our national government to exercise one of its important fimc- '., tions. Reckless speculation, poor management and downright dishonesty '.. contributed to many of the commercial, . : indtiEU'ial and banking failures that have marked the depression, and we do • - not contend that it is not the func- L tion of government to restrain or prc- . vent such abuses. But obviously. the majority of bank and business failures, with their destructive influence upon public confidence and business activity, the decline in agricultural commodity prices and the hardship worked -upon owners of mortgaged farm lands, and many other misfortunes attendant upon the depression, arc traceable directly to the failure of our government to maintain the stability of the American dollar, and that \* a fundamental responsibility of government. President Hoover :st Uc> Moiucs told of liis successful fight to keep the American dollar on it parity with gold. He would really have .something to brag about if he lm:l been even in u small degree successful in maintaining a stable ratio between the dollar and other commodities Stability of the latter kind would have meant u thousand times more to the rank and file of the American people than this much vaunted stability in relation to gold. Banks have failed because the cagh value of perfectly good assets was destroyed 'by the- instability of the dollar. Farmers have lost their farms, business men their hirine.sscs, home owners their homes for the same reason. There are difficulties in the way of attaining such actual stability, as distinguished from the highly unstable "stability" of the gold standard, because gold docs have the advantage of affording a convenient and universally accepted basis for international trade, but certainly they arc not insuperable. And certainly the experience of the past three years ban been such as to make obvious the necessity of tackling them. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Ci..

Our major political parties each con- lain a man who, it is safe to say, is listened to by the ordinary citi/.cu quite as eagerly as any officeholders in the land. Neither of these men is in public office; neither expects to be in the near future. Whatever influence they have comes simply from what they are. These men, of course, ' are Calvin Coolidge and! Alfred E. Smith. Whenever the mood moves either to speak, lie is sure of an' audience; The nation listened when Mr. Coolidge commented on the campaign; it lisl- • ened again when Air. Smith had his say on the subject. Its careful attention is a tribute to two well-grounded reputations. sc Caused Fish to Bite, Commission Told 'SCRANTON, I'.i.
