MARKET CONTROL BILL CRITICIZED Untermeyer One of Leading Advocates of Federal Regulation. WASHINGTON, April 5. (^Pi- Severe criticism of the stock market control bill was voiced to the senate banking committee today by Samuel Untermyer, one of the foremost advocates of federal regulation of the exchanges. The short, heavy set lawyer who served as-counsel for the famous Pujo banking inquiry In the house 20 years ago, recommended many change* to the Mil, including drastic modification of Its disputed marginal provisions. He recommended that complete supervision of margin requlrments be vested with the federal reserve board instead of attempting to write them Into the law. The rigid, uniform marginal requirements in the bill, Untermyer said, were written upon "a false basis," which he contended would have the effect of deflating the market.

Bookkeeper Walter Davis, Custodian Sturdy and vigorous, pulsing with youth", yet mellowed by the stress of the most eventful financial years in the history of this country, THE NORTHWEST SAVINGS BANK observes its FIFTH ANNIVERSARY. Five years ago April 6th, 1929, this new bank was opened to the .public. Its opening followed a period when Mason City had been served by but one bank. Because the new bank was a sister institution it was currently reported that the new enterprise was just a gesture. We confidently believe that the progress of the past five years has convinced everyone that this bank was organized to fill a definite need in the financial structure of Mason City, and has been conducted so as to realize in fullest measure its every opportunity. Born just before the bubble burst, the first few months of its history were co-incident with that now unbelievable era in American affairs when nearly everyone seemed to believe that it could never storm again. .But before the new^ bank, was six months old the tempest broke. Through weary years the skies at home and abroad g^r'ew blacker, and blacker. The lusty infant deprived of normal diet of ordinary business progress, if it did not increase in stature at least stubbornly refused to evidence decline. The ship of state sailed on through storm and stress and came at least to sunnier waters. At the heighth of the storm, at that black moment when by government fiat all banks of the country were closed, THE NORTHWEST SAVINGS BANK suspended ordinary operations only at command of Washington and reopened at the moment the choice banks of the nation outside of federal reserve cities were permitted to do so. Since that moment the bank's progress has been almost unbelievable to ourselves. In less than five months it became "A Million Dollar Bank." Within the year now just ended it had doubled its deposits and its resources. We "like to think that this continuous progress and growth has been prophetic and perhaps a factor in the continued improvement in general conditions in this section of the state. Consciously we have neglected no opportunity to help in that improvement. When the corn loan campaign of the government was instituted we cut such red tape as we could to assist farmers in securing immediate benefit from the government's assistance. Daily too in less conspicuous ways we have tried to aid every customer in meeting the day-to-day problems that arise in business or personal affairs. · Service with a smile is hackneyed and yet no other words describe what we have tried to offer to our customers. That they liked it is proven by our FIFTH ANNIVERSARY statement appearing here. With deepest gratitude we thank every firm and every individual who have contributed to our growth. With the utmost sincerity we pledge ourselves anew to policies of the utmost service to all, consistent with safety and stability. We will not promise what we cannot do and we will do what we promise. For your confidence and faith through the stormy five years that are behind us, we thank you. You have helped us. It is our precious privilege to hope that we have helped you. NORTHWEST SAVINGS BANK MASON cray, IOWA AFFILIATED WITH NORTHWEST BANCORPORATION
