RMED BANDITS ROB BANK AT MALVERN They'll Reform If She's Sleulli Slate Association President Enthusiastic Over Convention's Achievement. Satisfaction at the achievements of the 41st annual convention of the Arkansas Bankers association, held at Little Rock Tuesday and Wednesday; was expressed today liy B. 'A. Lynch, newly fleeted president, who returned to Bly- thoville today. Principal accomplishment of the convention was the adoption of a code of practices, designed to strengthen Arkansas banks and prcvenl recurrence of a disaster like thai wlilch followed the closing of more than 100 Arkansas banks last fall To obtain acceptance ami application of this code by all of the hanks of th- stale will be the major uur- l>cs? of (he association for the en- suinir year. Mr. Lynch declared. Mlssijsinpt county bankers, in addition to Mr. Lynch, who attended [he state meeting were A. G. Little and John Snydcr of the First. National bank of this city and M. I... Sumner of the Bank of Osceola. Under the action taken by the convention banks put the new code i-hich fall to into practice within tho next tv.elve months will not !»' clijiWe for membership in the association. The purpose of the code, as outlined In its preamble, is to make banks safe by assuring them a margin of profit sufficient tn cover inevitable losses and to give stockholders a reasonable return upon their investments. Besides fixing service charges on all services rendered by banks, the coric rets forth stern rules on loans, security for loans, and the .'actions of bank officials '•"in ',"• rcjriru * to 'fumis invested -In banks. It demands insurance coverage for bak employes, along with other measures Intended to assure safety of deposits. 'T am convinced that adoption nnd u:;e cf the cede is essential to the welfare and safety of the banking industry in Arkansas, and that shall be raj' sole platform and aim." Mr. Lynch declared. "I nm delighted that the code was adopted, nnd that no sentiment against it was expressed by the more than 500 bankers attending this meeting. I am goin» to urge that it be put into practice immediately." Tt will probably prove desirable. Mr. Lynch believes, to form regional sub-divisions of the present state banking association groups for consideration of the cocie. school of crime detection.

Besides testing and devising dbls ! for families stricken by economic, depression, the experts of the Bureau of Home Economics have also studied the control of weight so as to maintain the best, health and consequent maximum of pleasure in life. And they have worked out food and other budgets for families wit':) annual incomes ranging from $1250 to $2550, which includes the bulk of wage and salary earners. \ Family Budget For >5 Million Wane Earners. There's a budget for a family of l >' five with an income of $1525 a year, for instance, which is especially Interesting because the average wage of more than 25,000.000 American wage earners in 1930 has beep, e.-ti- mated at only $1580. The food allowance in that budget is S-338.88.
