At noon the Baptist ladles ot Glenwood served a fine dinner at which the cooperators and patrons were guests of tho association.

Banks Expected to Reopen Shortly a* Problems are Met Local Situation Ready for Change that May Come "Take all the money from out of the ranks, We'll still do business without any batiks."

When the state and national orders came closing all banks, Malvern business houses gathered what small change they could find in and kept doing business much as they did before. The Malvern Trust ft Savings bank wan one ot the tew In the state which did not close Saturday and this enabled the local businessmen to finish their Dol* lar Day sale without serious setback. The bank remained closed Monday but opened again Tueg- dny to make change for those needing tho service but could not receive deposits or pay out money. Tho national situation which forced the nation-wide bank holiday will not be settled until Congress meets today to ponder the matter. Otha D. Wearin, Congressman from this district, will take his seat in the national legislature for tho first time at this meeting. National observers expect that a limited currency Inflation will be used before the banks are allowed to reopen, held closely under the control of President Roosevelt. Lieutenant Governor Krnschel, who has been handling the Iowa banking situation, Indicates that nothing will be done about tho Iowa banks until the federal policy is learned. Meantime local business houses are making a splendid effort to handle business as usual and to accommodate customers whenever possible. repi Mass Meeting on Utility Rates Tonight A mass meeting for the consideration of utility rates has been called for this (Thursday) evening at 7:30 p, m.
