Action on First Day The first day of the Roosevelt administration marked the beginning of action on the part of the new President. Washington did not .seem surprised to see him order a nation wide bank holiday the first day he was in office and call Congress into extra session the first week, There was no hesitancy on the part of Congress in passing the administration's first measure entitled "A bill to provide relief in the existing National emergency in banking, and for other purposes." Joe Byrne of Tennessee who leads the majority sponsored the measure. The Republican leader, Mr, Snell, rose in bis place and urged bis colleagues to support it saying, "Our house is on fire; the President says this is the way to put it out so I shall not stand In the way," He was loudly cheered on both sides o! the Chamber with the permission of Henry T. Bftiney of Illinois, who presides over the 73rd Congress, The letter's snow-white hair, bis impressive bearing dominates the chamber when he is in the chair "and he has been there consistently during these first days ot the session, Malveffl Bank in Gomi Shape After Reopening Tuesday u UtBAt) All DIN Siftc* JaJS, t Ate, The Mfctvern Trnet & Barings Bans:, one of the first In the county to reopen fof business since the closing order by the u. 8. came March «, opened up its doors And its vaults Tuesday of this week for business as usual. Fred Durbtn, president of the bank, Bpent Monday In Dei Moinea where he conferred with the state banking officials as to details of operation. Under state order they were permitted to open up under the new State Banking law, Senate file 111, which alt state banks are supposed to operate under, that were given permission to open the first of the week. Opening under this law makes the deposits in the bank still safer and ae the Malvern Trust A Savings bank was already operating under a waiver plan with plenty of good assets waivered, It releases all deposits made since Jan, 1 when the waivers Were secured. In other words the bank is on a good, sound basis, but under this state plan it will greatly Increase the work of those in charge. Your checking account is in Working order again. The new banking law makes banking a bit more difficult but at the same time a lot safer for the depositors. fif0m County Seat Mr*.

F. R. Chantry made the report for the committee and was followed by J. M. Steele, another member of the committee with some further comments.

They had then arrranged a meeting with the committee and representatives of the North Western Bell company who came to Malvern and went over the matter with them very thoroughly giving the company's side of the question, but did uot promise any relief iu the matter of rates, as they considered the present rates as low as they could make. The committee presented their side — the falling prices in every thing else, the fact that many people could not afford to keep their phones at the present rate and were taking them out, thus lowering the value of the service to those who still retained their phoues, aud various other points.
