Stores generally opened as usual and most announced they had available funds for today and longer. Banking department officials were positive In their assertions that despite tho legal closing of the banks arrangements must and would 'be made to allow small withdrawals for necessary current funds to operate fundamental businesses. "Necessary as the moratorium action Is," Relchert said, "It Is also vital that those who will be caught without adequate funds to finance household or emergency business needs must bo taken care of." Money by Trucks Western Union Telegraph rushed orders to offices In nearby states to ship currency Into Michigan by armored truck. A. A. Burr, Detroit superintendent, said they had avail. able cash for today and would securo funds to cash any and all money orders for the company that might bo presented. At Battle Creek members of the Clearing House Association met hurriedly and announced that member banks would care for the needs of current business and pay rolls. Postal Telegraph Company announced It was negotiating for currency to bo shipped Into Michigan from adjoining states by armored motor trucks. Postal officials announced they had n limited reserve of ready cash on hand but that they were negotiating with the Federal Reserve Bank for further funds to meef money orders and to cash checks on postal savings accounts. Employes will probably bo paid In cash, Peter Wlgdle, assistant postmaster, said, to aid In relief of tho shortage of funds. Tho Impression gleaned from the banking survey was that bankers generally throughout the country believe the Michigan situation to bo local In character and that it will not have an effect on other, states. Government officials were represented as believing that the Michigan situation would right Itself In a short time. GOVERNOR ALLEGES FORD TO BLAME LANSING, Mich., Feb. 14. (U.

A LEADER of tho forces attacking prohibition, said In a speech In New Jersey: "It Is bound up with crime, Insanity, and too often with poverty. It Is increasingly apparent that the Intemperate use of Intoxicants has no place In our mechanized civilization. On our highways a drunken man is more than an objectionable companion—he Is a peril to the rest of us. The hand that controls the machinery of our factories, that holds the steering wheel of our automobiles, and tho brains that guide tho course of Industry and finance should alike bo free from tho effects of overindulgence In alcohol." In not a single wet speech sincn has the truth of that utatnment been do- nlod. It stands aa nn admitted fact. Indord, wh»n the dryu take tho offensive on the evljn of tho llfjuor traffic, tho wot leaders will havo to meet this IHBUO squarely. One Public lnt»r«»t Tho only public Interest asserted to support the demand for restoration of the liquor traffic Is tax relief. The cost of automobile accidents has an important bearing on this cmeatlon. Statistics show it to be about $2,000,000,000 a year. This IK nearly equal to the entire cost of education In the United States—higher, elementary and secondary. If alcohol is held responsible for a fourth of the accidents— und this In a very low figure—the public has to pay every year a loss of $600,000,000. It Is self-evident thut what causes such colossal waste In Industry- and manpower cannot be made an economic asset by the expedient of taxing It. Cauiss Fatalities Thnt. a single glass of wlno slows tho reaction of tho automobile driver's brain,- eyes, bands and feet Is a scientifically established fact. It I a conservative estimate that 10,000 o the 85,000 automobile fatalities ar caused by drink and mostly by mod orate Indulgence. In six years th death toll exacted by alcohol wout nearly equal tho entire losses In ac tlon of the American army In th World War. This alone Is concluslv proof of the statement that beverag alcohol has no place In our mechan Ized civilization. Tho speaker had In mind the faa that the number of automobiles I uso has risen elnco 1917 from aroun 2,000,000 to more than 26,000,000; tha tho dnatha In auto accldenln hav mounted to the appalling number o nearly 35,000 a year and Injuries t hundreds of tliousundt.
