BAGLEY CARL A. PARKER · ROBERT P. SMITH FRED C. HENEMAN EARL SMITH FRANK J. HANLON W E have reached the First Anniversary of the opening of the banks following the national banking holiday. Let's rejoice together. The banks of the country were closed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 4, 1933, in' order to preserve the financial structure bi tbis great commonwealth. The First National Bank of Mason City, although in a healthy financial condition and ^ fully able to meet the demands made upon it by this community, observed the holiday as it was national'in scope. But, when the ban was lifted, this strong bank, established 64 years ago, was one of the very first to open outside of cities having Federal Reserve banks. Looking back, we see that conditions have changed considerably since the bank holiday. At that time fear and uncertainty gripped the nation in an icy hand. Banks were closed. Business, industry and commerce were at a standstill. A depressed feeling was everywhere. And no man knew what the morrow might bring. But, the situation is entirely different today. New hope is in every eye--new courage in every heart. There is action. Business, industry and commerce are moving forward. From all parts of the country come most encouraging reports of better conditions and better times. Figures indicate that the improvement of the last year, since the opening of the banks, is very real and substantial. Today it is evident that that long-awaited "corner" actually was turned some time ago. And now we can look forward to the future with a great deal of confidence. The First National Bank's first anniversary of the opening after the banking holiday is tomorrow . . . Wednesday, March 14. We cordially invite everyone in this community to rejoice with us at this time. First National Bank MASON CITY, IOWA Affiliated with Northwest Bancorporation
