It, was given out, last week that the First National would pay out, 90 per cent on deposits. This makes It practically certain that If there had been no expense of receivership the bank would have proved It»elf 100 per cent sound. Criticism of the national banking authorities for forcing- liquidation seems Justified.—News item In Algona Advance. The above expression Is a natural one, and represents what a majority of people -would be apt to heileve from a casual observation of the situation. A close inspection of the (acts In this case, liowever, shows that resentment toward the Watlonal banking- department is not justified. The national banking department did not force liquidation of the Wesley bank.: The people of Wesley were directly responsible. When the bank closed, In October, 1928, the following notice was posted on the door of the bank to explain the action: "BE IT RESOI/VEI) that on account of unexpected and unusual withdrawals of deposits, due, as we believe, ..to. the circulation of disparaging rumors, we, the undersigned directors arc of the belief that we are best nerving the Interests of our loyal depositors to suspend and place (lie assets In the hands of the Comptroller of the Currency for liquidation, and do Jicreby agree that the First National Bank of Wesley, Iowa, shall not open for business October 13, 1928.'

THE OTHER WEEK George H, Free caught the Colyum on what looked like a misspelled W ord—"succomb' for "succumb." As we remarked at the time we could not be convinced of error till Webater had been consulted. Web- sted ruled against ue, but the mystery, femalned —how had we grown accustomed to "succomb"? AVell, the mystery haa been solved! BtTJwsIng late Monday evening through ta.

The French are certainly a difficult lot to get along with. Settlement of the debt France owes the U. S. has long been hanging fire. Some newspaper In southeastern Iowa had the nerve the other day to include McFarlane in a Hat of proposed candidates to beats Brppkhar.t. That shows to what lengths these "old guard" editors are prepared to •go.! 'MCFarlane forsooth!

Hammond, Des Molnes dry crusader, does the prohibition cause :more harm than good. His latest fool etunt is an attempt to bar near beer. Crusades like these heap ridicule on enforcement of the liquor laws. What If near beer IS used for spiking? Deprived of It, the spikers would merely spike something else and nothing would have been gained. The sympathy of all nor.thweet Iowa goes out to Spencer. ' Yet the fire which laid a large part of the city low may'prove to have been a blessing in disguise. .It provides an opportunity for rebuilding on modern lines * which Spencer might otherwise have. !hnd to forego for many years. Spencer lies in a promising location for a future city of 10,000 to 15,000 inhabitants and now is the time for; "city ^planners there to get buey. . ...••'• It becomes more and more apparent that the big bus and'truck lines'\yhich crowd, the-.highways must be regulated' and made to pay their share of the upkeep of the roads.

And Editor Deemer Lee, of the Dally News, Is Still • Bachelor! [Estherville Dally News.] Statistics taken in Eetherville township during the last census show that there are 600 more females in that area than there are males. With these figures in view it Is plain that a girl in Estherville Is lucky if she has a date once every 60 nlghte. One consolation, It is -pointed out, a girl sitting home on a moonlight night can be sure that 699 other girls are camped by the fireside In town to keep her company. It has been suggested that the excess females might get together and form a 600 club or perhaps the system should be organized to give everyone "a break." WAIL OF A WANDERER Opinions of the Editors DIAGNOSIS OF OUH ECONOMIC ILLS, AND THE REMEDIES In a thoughtful editorial Saturday morning *he Sioux City Journal attempted a diagnosis of -the country's economic troubles. Economically •things are not right in this country, and have aiot been for years, the Journal premised. President Glenn Frank, of the state university of "Wisconsin, is quoted as having said: This depression is unique in that it has been -caused not by our failure to master want but T»y our failure in managing plenty. We have -plenty of money. We'have plenty of food. We liave plenty of coal., And yet we have emerged •from a winter in which men went hungry, ragged, shoeless and shivering. We are a nation •of Midases. We turn to gold everything we •touch, and then starve In the presence of its Blitter. We know how to make things. We do not know how to manage a civilization—yet. This is a rich country, the Journal goes on to -say, the richest the world has ever known. It -produces a sufficient amount of everything to provide everybody with the necessities and comforts of life. Yet there are millions who live m hand-to-mouth existence, try as they will to -overcome the conditions they find. There are 3ionest men, capable, willing,. industrious, and 3oyal, who struggle from maturity to the grave <to make a Uving. The Journal continues: We have poverty in this country which is so rich. We have wretchedness and despair and desolation. There are discouragement and disappointment and distress to be found by anyone not blinded .to them. There are families -that are worthy but do not get their share of "the good things this country affords. There must be a reason for it, and that is where the ^diagnosis begins. The concentration of money power In the hands of a small percentage of the population >l»as not contributed to the well being of the •American people. It may have produced a miraculous industrial development, but one may inquire, to what purpose? The answer must be, •In the creation of a larger number of multimillionaires. Now comes the important paragraph of the Journal's editorial, the diagnosis: Our ailment. The Journal believes, is this: We t«.ve two widely separated classes of society. One, which controls capital in the higher brackets, takes too much from both the consumer and :the worker. The other suffers from this Injustice, which has no defense under moral law. "3*e American people must have relief from this condition. Capital has got to put things right «n its own account or it will be made to do it. ,JUt to the details of prescription, treatment and Tcure The Journal fully realizes that is an undertaking that will need time and patience and On-ains. It is a task the performance of which •Will demand the best in Intellect and patriotism the country affords. This is a somewhat remarkable editorial, com- .Ing from an important daily newspaper. It is the more striking In this section of the country ^because another Iowa daily has been publishing m series of,able editorials pointing out the ne- •weasity of relying on great private accumula- tlons of wealth for the ecomonlc progress which makes for higher standards of civilization and the consequent betterment of conditions for the .masses. The Advance agrees with both the Journal •ad Mr. Ingham, author of the editorial eeries *» question. In fact it is necessary to add the Journal's diagnosis to Mr. Ingham's series to Xtad a basis on which to work out a remedy. .3Jr. Ingbam dwells too much on the side of wealth and fails to take the present needs of the unasses into account sufficiently. The Journal ^points out the sore spot in the world economics today, and this sore will never heal till it is with the Journal's diagnosis as a basis. Wealth must be protected as far as is neces- to assure the world of its benefits. Men of ability, genius, vision must be permitted to accumulate great fortunes, that they may have •4he means to cheapen economic goods for the •masses and perfect schemes of distribution, however selfish their alms, this must be the re- •«nlt, for they cannot otherwise achieve their private goals. But this reasoning is far from admitting that present economic division of the world's Is satisfactory. It is npt, and the present (••equitable distribution must be remedied or •lirivate wealth will soon face #aajJter. Wealth •motet submit to ney and drastic motion it It to «o survive.

The greatest crime is worked jagainst the producers of goods, farmer's, manufacturers and the like, who are the frequent'bonjojvers of money. They borrow, thinking that s'd much goods can be marketed and the mone^-^epald to the bank that loans it. Deflation comes and they find that they must sell a third or a half more goods to pay the loan. .' .

NOT ALL READERS, of course, are so loyal as Frank (War.and Peace) Miles.who gets up ' ' ! so he' can The Wise Chicago Bankers and Their Trouble* Jt'w which it ca» not reoj- [Emmetsburg Democrat.] The Algona Advance is rightfully putting the Chicago financiers on the defense.In their present embarrassing difficulties. A few years ago when Iowa bankers were denied reasonable accommodatoins by the federal reserve, institution of that city, they were tantalized with making excessive loans to the owners of lands and were reminded that they were not entitled to any additional accommodations. This was the first serious black eye given to Iowa real estate holdings. They commenced to go down rapidly in value, and, in a few weeks, the resulting depression became widespread and disastrous. At the same time, Chicago boomers were putting up immense apartment and business buildings and were paying skilled laborers belonging to the unions all the way from $12 to $17 per day for their services. Most of them were working- on an eight-hour schedule. The Chicago loaners who started the depression in Iowa were placing excessive amounts on their home structures in course of erection. " This condition continued for Uyo or three years. However, the chickens finally came home to roost and now the Chicago financiers are pleading piteously for home confidence in their integrity and in their exaggerated resources. Chicago is not the only city in which values will continue to slump. Every large place from Lake Michigan to the Gulf and from the Mississippi to-the Atlantic is likely to suffer heavy bank losses because stock values that were greatly inflated under the Hoover administration do not begin to have the recuperating stability of Iowa farm lands. The stupendous losses in the Wall Street slump, which affected assets In practically every financial institution east of the Father of Waters, were the greatest in American history. They are largely responsible for our present depression, because, as a people, we have for many years been consuming probably 85 to 90 per cent of what we produce. While the slump in the foreign demand for the outputs of our farms and our factories has been costly, the crippling of our home market is the most serious blow that we have ever sustained. We are not glorying in Chicago's financial mieery but it is well to keep the record straight.
