FRIDAY/, FEBRUARY 11,193S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELISVILLE, PA. PAGE FIVE. LEGION ENROLLMENT'UP 101 OVER 1937 PERIOD COUNTY GROUP INFpRMED There arc 101 more Legionnaires enrolled for 1938 than there were for 1937 at the same time. District Commander Oscar Sutiiftc of Somerset informed the Foyettc County American Legion Committee Wednesday n!_ht at its monthly meeting in the Uniontown Legion Home. A venison dinner was served prior to the business period when a committee was named to judge the high school essays to be offered in competition for the annual scholarship awarded by State Senator Anthony Cavnlcantc. The March meeting will be hold at Faycttc City. Today in Washington As It Is Interpreted / By David Lawrence / Continued from Page Four. local communities, these facts will have to come out in the open, too. It will bo asked then: Are all the banks in the various states affected so strong that their financial condition and all the details of their management can be thrown open to Fast Time Being Made in Building New Sewer Line Already 232 feet ot the South Side sewer line has been laid by the WPA force constructing the trench extending from Trump Run to South Pittsburg street from which point a tunnel will be driven as far as Vine street. Laying of the sewer pipe is quite a feat as each section weighs 2,860 pounds. The pipe sections are four feet long and weight 7J5 pounds to the Toot. The Inside diameter of the pipe is 42 inches, the largest size of any sewer ever built in Connclls- ville. Through a device worked out by Bert Franks, who Is supervising laying of the pipe, movement of the heavy sewer sections is simplified. A single wheel has been used in building a lifting device on the order of a wheelbarrow with the handle lifts providing room for eight men. The "lift" is placed inside the sewer pipe with the wheel extending onto the other side. Cn top of the frame work is rigged sufficient blocking to keep the pipe from swaying. Eight men can easily take hold of the lifts and wheel the pipe Into position, ranking the task quite easy. Ordinarily it would require a block and tacMc. The new plan of placing the pipe will simplify the work of laying the sewer line in the tunnel. Meanwhile work is progressing rapidly,on the tunnel being supervised by Fred Middlcton, for years mine plant superintendent. City Engineer Joseph E. Hoenshcl, who drafted the plans for the sewer project, beUc"cs the new sewer line will eliminate much of the previous trouble in the Ncwmycr avenue watershed in the wake of heavy rainfalls. can congressional Inquiry now? My impression is that the "holding companies" in the banking field ought to be called "helping companies" and that they are helpful rather than hurtful to the people of their communities and that there is no abuse among them which cannot be cured by wise regulation cither by the Federal government or the state governments ur both, and that abolition of bank holding companies at this time would be a mistake. For one thing, the total deposits of the bank holding companies are not more than about $6,000,000,000, out of the total of $50,000,000,000 In our banks, but it is a sizeable total to tamper with by legislation at this time. A careful study of the powers of the Federal Reserve Board and the Comptroller of the Currency shows that the holding company banks are under considerable regulation already. They must submit to examination just as do other banks "Up-stream" loans are prohibited. A holding company must get from the Federal Reserve Board n permit to vote the stock of the member banks in its group, and, to obtain a permit must make certain agreements nnc understandings with the supervisory authorities. Ample protection for the public is thus provided by law to stockholders to depositors and to the public as a whole. What then Is wrong? Is i possible that the banks of a holding company perform some service tha is actually useful to their communities and which some other banks di Slate Motor Police In 18 Headquarters HARRISBURG.

An extemporaneous program "of speaking will be presented and there will be music by the band, Fire Chief W. E. DcBolt, in charge of arrangements, said today. not or cannot supply? Is this not a matter of competition rather than concentrated control? Take one holding company which happens to be very successful in i operations. It owns virtually 100 pe cent of the stock of each of its con btituent banks. But the holding com pany itself has about 25,000 stock holders and no man or family own as much as six per cent of the hold ing company. In other words, the stockholders who are scattered far and vide nnc who know the responsibilities o double liability that attnch nowaday to the ownership of bank stocks, hav organized a "helping corporation which looks out for all the share holders and depositors as n unit. Th officers are really trustees for al these scattered stockholders and can be removed by majority vote. Capita from tho "helping corporaL'on" can flow to the member banks at any time needed. But the "helping corporation" actually makes money--which may possibly be its principal crime. It provides management and supervision and maintains several departments for all the member banks and thus is able to make group purchases of securities, furnish advice to the smaller banks, act on behalf of its members economically and exchange credit information and plans for economical operation and trust department procedure. All the resources of this particular group of banks put together would not equal the resources of any one of the big New York or Chicago banks, and, if the holding company in question were dissolved, the member banks would be paying tribute to Wall Street through heavier expenses not now incurred to carry on New York transactions. Mr. Roosevelt may not know It, but his plan to abolish "helping companies" in the banking field it not at all in disfavor among the large banks who will profit by it, and if concentration is a sin, nothing has been said yet about the much larger amounts of deposits concentrated in single unit banks in the big cities. The truth Is the "helping companies" insist on autonomy for each of their own member banks. They do not as a rule engage in any line of activity except banking and do not become involved, through interlocking directorates, with outside interests. But they nttemp to serve a commercial area, and so successful have some of them been that they have had applications from other banks in their vicinity to be permitted to join. Is it possible that Mr. Roosevelt wants to nationalize all the banks some day and through the RFC vote their stock In a holding company of the Government, controlled by one man? The "helping companies" with their member banks are strong j enough today to be independent o f | government Influence and dictation for political purposes. If that's the real reason for the death sentence, then the public, when fully informed, will want to inquire very penetratingly into the whole subject.
