THE HUTCHINSON NEWS HUTCHINSON, KANSAS, SATURDAY, JULY 14. 192.5 .SECOND SECTION The Secret of Why Some Men Obtain Credit and Others Fail Various Meaning* Applied to Credit—The Way Character Begets Confidence and Opens the Way to Trust—Thrift and Honesty Basis of Banking. The secrot of why some men can roadlly^obtaln credit, while others are unable to borrow a cent, is disclosed in the prosent arlolo prepared by the Qomralttee on PubrIc Education of the American Bankers Association. It tails an Interesting story ot how ft jnan of forty, of good roptttatton and isir success, Was nonplussed by his Inability to borrow and. had to paas VP a good opportunity. t Banks are satd to deal in credit. The word "credit" has various meanings. When you depoBit money, your account recurves "credit" tor that amount. When a man borrows money on bis note at the bank, ho is granted "credit." When a railroad, a manufacturing concern, a town, or a government, 1RSUO_S bonda, it uses Its "credit." When anyone buys goods without paying cash, at the time of purchase, "credit" Is granted. Without credit, our present day business try-atom could not exist. Credit Is iv>s«rlblo only where people have confldonco in each other, and confidence can exist only where good character exists. Every successful business man looks upon his credit standing us a most valuable asset, and he maintains it by square dealing. To get credit a man must pay his debts, or It soon becomes known he 1H not ot good oharactcr and not worthy of confidence. Those-from whom-he would buy refuse to trust Kim an dtho banks -declino to grant him credit. Then come business failure and a long uphill tight to got on hl-3 feet again ami live down the past. More Than d-lonesty Needed. .Honesty ts not the only factor ln- Tolved in credit. For Instance, Mr. Jones, a man of forty, of oxcellent morals, who has enjoyed a fair Income for many years, sees an opportunity to purchase a business. Ha requires financial assistance He' calls on a banker and asks fdr the neces- eary credit. The banker aBks the na . ture of the business, what It will cost, and what Mr. Jones can command In ready money, or other resources, but learns Uiat h© has no money or property ot lite own. It is clear that Mr. Jones lacks ability to manage his affairs wisely. Ho has not - had enough strength ot character to save money by adapting expenses to Inooino, and -therefore has not proved that he, could make financial progress. Moreover, If men do not Invftst some of their own money " in, the business they usually hick incentive and become easily discouraged. It would he unwise" for anyone to assume such a financial risk, and Mr. Jones probably would fall to got credit from the bank. He must givo up hlB opportunity to somo one else who has saved money. Service Not Compulsory. Banks are public servants, but that does not obligafo them to servo those _who aro unfair In business or lacking in the great principles underlying success. To be known as a vareful and thrifty person Is the best assurance that the bank will extend fluan- clal help when needed. Many people think that one should shun debt like the measles. They fall to distinguish between wise and unwise debt. It -Is wise to use credit, that Is, go Into debt, to buy a home, 6uch dobt encourages thrift.

It ts an investment that should pay dividends in irrsater success. Another wise use of credit h> Ijorrowlng to buy good bonds, such as Liberty Bonds, paying $20 down, borrowing ISO froin the bank, and paying It off out of savings.' . - , When to Shun Debt. There are circumstances, however, under which one should never borrow • money. Nover Incur a debt in a speculative, venture. Of the peoplo who speculate, nln'oty-flve per cent lose. Neither should debts' be Incurred to purchase pleasure-giving possessions. Such debts are millstones around the nocks of countloss families. Progressive banks adhere to the samo standards they exact of their patrons. Their business methods must be beyond'reproach. They exclude business of doubtful reputation and have no part in the feverish struggle for sudden wealth. Well-managed banks aro regarded with great respect, and hold a place ot over Increasing importance. '' Some thoughtless persons criticlio banks for not making loans more freely but it-must ,bo remembered that a bank's business is to receive deposits as woll as to grant loans, and it Is therefore the trustee of money belonging to others. It must safeguard Its depositors' funds and BO control them as t» be always ready to return them intact upon demand. That requires g-reat care In granting credits.

The Stevens Swimming Pools which are the largest and best In the state are very popular these, warm day3, and every day, throngs of pooplo from tho country and surrounding towns as well as Hutchlnsan people gather thero through out the day to "cool off" with a swim. An added attraction out there Is the very competent professional swimmer, M'IBS Mickey Horseman who Is giving lesBons in swimming and diving practically every minute of tho day to ambitious little folks aud their eldors. This Is Miss 'Horseman's second summer In Hutchinson and during tho winter she teaches In Wichita. Cures All Ills. Miss Horseman urges swimming as a panacea for ills like the old patent \ medicine vendor used to recommend I his miracle liquid for everything from corns to concer. In one instance ot a Hutchinson woman who was suffering with asthma and a paralyzed arm, Miss Horseman proscribed swimming, when several physicians had tried many different cures with no avail, and now tho arm Is bolng used and tho young woman is gaining weight right along. The "patient" started with her lessons last summer with Miss -Horseman, and during tho win- tor went to Wichita once a week and continued with her lessons In the Y. W. C. A. pool there. Miss Horseman spends her winters at hor homo In Wichita, and gives instruction at the Y. W. O. A. pool. Miss Horseman advocates v swlm- ming for Jumping nerves. Once while she was teaching in Wichita, one little girl who had Infnntllo paralysis was -brought to the pool in a wheel chair for her first lesson In swimming. Soon tho child was a-blo to walk with crutches and now alio walks and runs as any other normal child. Anyone, familiar •with the pictures and life story of Annette Kollerman, the wonderful swimmer of the movies, will remember that she was cured of tho same trouble by Bwimming. She's a Regular M. D. Fully as important to tho normal peraou as swimming 1B tho ability to save life. The teaching of resuscitation Is a pot hobby of Miss Horseman, also life saving. Miss Horseman Is a Wichita young woman and five years ago, she took up swimming •with tho idea ot teaching. Hho learned tho art within a year, and took tho examination for American Eed Cross Life Buying at tijs imd of-that time, .passing .it. She has two class- tree of charge. Last year, she passed the examination as Red Cross Life Saving Examiner which gives her the ! riKht to tench it. She has also had I hospital training aud is able to give [examinations of the heart and lungB, before teacfting a-, person to swim. No ! other physical examination is required at the pools here. Captain Law ot tho -Ued Cross- Life Saving headquarters at St- Louis, Mo., will be here some time this summer and will givo a demonstration ut the pools twice a day for several days. Tills subject lias beeomo of moro im portance each year, and this summer a campaign "Every swimmer a life saverMs being hold throughout tho country. Miss Horseman la looking forward to this visit of Captain l-aw and said yesterday that ahe, Celt It would ho a great tiling for Hutchinson and her people. She's Also a Dancer, Miss Horseman's talents aro not confined to swimming. During the winter, Hho visits Hutchinson once or twice a week giving Interpretative dancing In tho W. O. W. hall. She teaches the Dennishawn method, and is continuing with the lessons this summer at the Stovens Pavilion. Miss Horseman Is' a "physical culturlst" from the word "go", and shn also thinks that dancing Is u wonderful cure for Ills and a builder of health.

Arriving at a place ."uo miles into tho interior of tin? country with six bullocks and carts, they lived in a hut with mud walls, a straw roof, and the earth as a flour, with the door ns the only opining. In order to get the bullocks into a corral in the rear of the hut ami thus safeguard ilium from thieves, tin y hail to lend the bullocks through their livin-j quarters.

They arc abused and given no cncouraneimuit whatever tu improve either mentally, morally, or spiritually.
