In at least two towns In Southeast Kansas, widely separated, wi ^bin the past few days rumors have tnir- rent that the real reason ex-Presl- dent Hoover Is remaining in New York instead of returning to California or setting out on the fishing trip it was announced he would take, is that he is under arrest in New York. The story goes that he "stole everj-- thing he could lay his hands on before leaving the White House, and shipped it to Eiy;ope," and that now the new administration has had him arrested but is keeping, it quiet until nil the fact.s caji bp gathered. The fact that such a preposterous .story as that can be circulated and nclually believed .simply shows how dei'P the double-distilled ix)ls6n put out througli the bemocratlc publicity bureau In Jts ".smear Hoover' campaign lias sunk in the minds oi .scmo people. Who cnn measure the depths of the hideous crime that was committed by the men who not only destroyed confidence in Hoover as a statesman, but made it possible for some men to believe that he Is not even personally honest.

It ^es a real, regular, pld-fash- admlnistratiq get ready foi lined panic ill right. Without any- jlMdy saying : iriything about it, without anything appearing in the newspapers to jui tlfy it, without any political crisis impending more than might be slg lifted by the chahjfo of m at Washington ..which everybody had had four months to willful any disturb- ilng news frcjm abroad,—for no ap- iparent rcrvson; people all over the icounti7 who pad money in the banks jbcgan about I two weeks_ before the [Aih oi March to withdraw it. In the iweek preceding March "1 nearly a billion dollars was withdrav/n from the New York City banks alone. lOrders for heavy gold shipments to Europe began to come in. By March .J4ilt was apparent that unless im- 'iniediate and drastic action was taken the country would be in the grip pi such a panic as it has not experienced more than three or torn- times in all its histdry. And so that immediate and drastic action was tak- i^n. A bank holiday for four days wias proclaimed throughout the coun- jtrjr, the Fpderil government order- jing the National banks to close and the Governors of states taking similar action with respect to state panks- At the close of the first four days the holiday was extended another three days and orders were given that unsound banks were noc jt<j re-open at all until their condi- tijon had been made secure. "What will happen when the banks iq open again?" 1 That was the universal question, Risked anxiously throughout the jM^untry. And there were many to •predict thatvthe run on the banks jn'hlch had precipitated the panic )i4ld be renewed the moment they re-ppened. iWell, in the orderly fashion pre- iprtbe^ by thje President the banks jjti the cities jopened yesterday, and there was nq run at all. On the contrary there were- deposits beyond aU preCedenU In Kan .sas • City, ^hlch was a fair c .Kample of all the [ilttes ill this respect, it was esti- cated that deposits 011 the first day hie banks were opened reached the itige sum of; $15,000,000. while the vlthdrawais were not onc-tbnth that ' amount.. One bank reported a sing'e d<[ppsil 'of $45,000. another $30,000, aitotiieir $25,000. Not only was there aj huge Increase in deposits, but there was an increase aLso in the number ojf; depositors. Similar reports come from every city, i The panic is over. 1 jWh at has happened in the cities ^ ais: their banks liavej oi^ened doubtless will happen in tihe small towns when tiieir turn comes. Here in Kan-, siis that should particularly- be the • case because there never was any riili on banlcs. Even more . particularly should ft be the case here in lola where jthe position oi cir banks is so strong that they not opiy have not availe^ themselves of the privilege th^y l^ad of bringing 'Ti a supply of the new currency the leniment has. mafle available tc it the crisis, but laave-even ship- out gold they have beenjCarry- as a part of ttjeir reseh'es in [er that it may be used tc len the general situation. The pf lola have the entire confidence of their patrons, no* more th^ ever, and'all the communitj aacs is that they re-qpen their doors soon as possible so that "business tisual" may be resumed. 0UR PEACE TIME AEMY. One reason why a perfectly peaceable riepublic such as ours should have an army of respectable size, well equipped and in good training, was demonstrated at Long Beach last week and this, as it was in San Francisco in 1906 and as it has been in ever}' majoi- disaster that ever occurred in this country. At Long Beach the men from adjoining army posts and from war ships in the harbor took immediate command of the situation. They guarded the exposed property, they patrolled the streets to assure order (and where United States soldiers patrol the" streets there always i.s order) and they brou'sht emergency supplies to the stricken people, Mighty comfortable to call in and lean upon in time of trouble Is the Army aiid Navy. dow larks are getting readj^ to buUd their nests and the dogtooth violets are pushing up through the greening grass. FKORI other Fapen ".STA!^D BY THE PRESIDENT." Leavenworth Times: "Stand by the President," we arc being admonished. Right, O! It is a time for all patriots to stand by the President wherever they can conscientiously. But it was a time when the crash came in 1929 for all patriots to stand by the President, and, instead, word wont out to the supporters of the present President: "Smear Hoover!' and they forthwith began to smear, and they kept it up through, foui ypnrs of poril to our country that called for every true American standing by the President. Well, they showed us how not tc do it. For your soul's sake and for the sake of your country stand by the President when you can. In the first 11 months of 1932 onlj one railroad passenger was killed in a trajn accident out of a total of 441 million passengers carried. This remarkable statement seems to prove two things: First, that to travel on a railroad train is safer than to stay at "home; and second, that in spite of automobiles and busses and trucks the railroads still are carrying a lot of passengers. The 441 million passengers carried during the first 11 months of 1932 traveled so far that the service was equivalent to carrying 15,594,115,000 persons for the distance of one mile. To do that with i)ut a single fatal accident certainly is EC!iie testimonial to the skill; and care with which railroad traffic is iiandlcd. The i5olicy President Roosevelt has foUowed thus far in his dealing with Congress has been undeniably, smart. He has handed the Congress one measure at a time and demanded action upon that one measure before anything else was taken up. Tliat i.s far better than to have dumped half a dozen measures into Uic congressional hopper at once and thus given the Senators and Repre- senlalives an opportunity to postpone them all by disagreement as to wliich one sliould be taken up first and then to barter and dickei snd log-roll and play one measure against another. Maybe Roosevelt is as good a politician as iiis friends say he is. Stop V^tenua^ Abuses! Chipilly Chips, organ of ChipUIy Post 310!, American Legion. In Legion circles lately we have been hearing practijially. nothing but defense of the attack Ijy the National Economy League on the vetera.ns' cost^ I have always stop*? fo^ adequate care for the man who is' suffering in any way from any disaWlJty connected with his service. However, I cannot see. any Jus^flcatipn in the present law which permits a man to receive compensation even though hts disability Is not service connected. Neither can I see the reason for furnishing free hospitalization to any man, when the ailment wliich ncccs.sltates his going tio the hos- pltn! Is ill no way connected with his service. Anoth^ thing I (jannot agree with is the disabled qmerg- ency officers' retirement pay. The purpose of this law may be fine, but I fail to see any reason for any man drawing $125 a month or more in compensation when he is not disabled to the extent to prevent hi; recci\'lng a salary sufficient for the needs of the average person. ; I may be wrong, but I do not be- heye the laws referred to above had the backing of the American Legion when they were passed. If not approved by the Legion then why should we fight to keep them now? Would it not be better for the Legion to get behind a prc^am which would eliminate these abuses of oui present laws rather than to fight any chang^? If the American Legion shows it is not,unreasonable in its demands it will make mlilions of friends aOid can be a big factor in helping to get the present tax mess str^ghteii- ed out locally as well as nationally FRECEES AND HIS FRIENDS ..

In the early part of the Revolution, Benedict Arnold was an efficient and trusted American general. Accused of as^ciating with Tories, he was court martialed and sentenced to be - reprimanded by General Washington for Indiscreet conduct. Resenting this treatment he planned to surrender West Point to the British General Clinton. The plot was disclosed and thwarted by the capture of Major Andre who had met Arnold as t(he emissary of Clinton. Tojieka- A measure denying certain persons the right to be candidates for party nominations was approved by the house last night after it rejected an amendment to insert the name of Dr. J. R. Brinkley of Milford in the bill. The measure provides no person may have his name printed on the primary ballot of any party if lie was a candidate at the previous election but riot as a nominee of the party. ' The house rejected an amendment by Representative Benson (D) of Seward providing Brinkley could not be a Republican candidate. It also turned down one by Representative Blylhe ( RV of Morris to I insert '"Democrat" instead of "Republicain" in the bill, with no mention of Brinkley. Dr. j Brinkley was an independent candidate for the governorship in 1930 tind 1932 elections. , , REa u. s. PA-"-, err, ^lHV ^e IB33 BY w:.\ StRVtCE.

If you want to know why men in public hfe attach so little importance to petitions this story may enlighten you. A Texas newspaper reporter obtained with httle time,and trouble 400 signatures to a petition urging President Roosevelt to appoint Giuseppe Zangara. the man who in attempting to assassinate Mr. Roosevelt shot and killed M!ayor Cermak. a member of his cabinet. It is because they know that most of the people who sign petitions do so without reading them, merely out pf good nature and without any personal interest in the subject matter, that experienced men pay so little heed to them.
