Thousands of depositors find themselves without available funds. The. federal banking department puts an official In charge of the institution. He goes about the business of getting affairs Into shape. There'Is no question about the assets being sufficient to net 50 per cent, 60 per cent, 70 per cent, 80 per cent—maybe 90 per cent in dividends. Depositors-are In hard straits for ready mpney. The government would be taking not • the slightest chance In declaring a sizable dividend. But under present practice no such dividend can be declared until Innumerable technicalities have oeen gone through with and money for payment actually has been collected out of the assets.. It Is a case of heaping Insult on Injury already sustained by the depositors. , . George C. Call, of Sioux City,' proposes that the government create a fund that will be available for the Immediate payment of depositors a - part of their money when they need it most, keeping the dividend well within the limits of good business. It is one of those simple little Ideas so unquestionably safe and sensible as to make us wonder why no one ever thought about It before—and why the government did not put It into effect long ago. In his message .to congress President Hoover approves of Mr. Call's plan—a fine but merited compliment to Mr. Call. AMES IN MAKING 1932 YEAR BOOK PLAN W. H.
