Dickinson Slated tot Important Committee The following excerpt was taken from Washington, D. C., correspondence In a dally paper the name of which has been mislaid i The republican regulars In the Senate did not wait this year for a republican progressive or a democrat to call for the setting up of'a campaign Investigating committee. Senator Dickinson of Iowa, has come forward with much such a resolution as was presented by Senator George W. Morris, of Nebraska, and which brought about the appointment of the Nye committee in 1930. It was a foregone conclusion that a campaign investigation committee would be set up this year. In 1928 the .Steiwer committee was appointed to inquire Into presidential .campaign expenditures, and the committee called before 'it the various republican candidates for the presidential nomination, as well as the democratic candidates. Among those who appeared was President Hoover. This year, if a senate committee is appointed, as It le expected to be the pre-convention compaigns of the democrats will probably contain the ereatest amount of interest,' since there are a dozen or more candl- Here Are More Reflections on Going and Busted Banks By S. H. McNutt. To the Editor—In your issue of March 3 under title "Reflections on Bank Failures," by a "Victim," it seems that consideration of the last sentence in the article is most important. If banking is to remain a private enterprise under the protection of a corporate charter, it will necessarily be accorded the same protection as other corporations receive. To attack banks or bankers because the failure of banks does not result in utter collapse of stockholders Is to attack corporations in general. As to whether corporations ought to exist at all, that is a question by itself. We know that in our own community, where stockholders turned everything they had into cash to J. .1.

That some bankers may have been dishonest, or were deluded optimistic lunatics, it is fruitless to discuss now. Honest, honorable, and capable men went down with the rest.

What I have said by way of correction applies to state banks only. National banks are-beyond tho power of the state to control. We have seen these banks fail and the fed- erat government take over the liquidation. The state has nothing to There Is a desire to - keep local funds within the state, but the Federal Reserve banks- draw It out. It Is the practice for the strong to devour the weak. It seems to be the Intent to destroy local banks; great banks want all the authority.

The resolution which resulted in the appointment of the Steiwer com'' tnlttee In 1930 was offered by the democratic leader of the Senate, Robinson, of Arkansas. The Dickinson resolution, which Is before the senate privileges and elections committee for consideration, calls for the appointment of a special committee of five senators to be appointed by the vice president, just as the earlier commltteees were appointed. Dickinson is not a candidate for election this year, having been elected only a couple of years ago, and with long service still ahead of him. He Is eligible for appointment as chairman of the special committee. If the practice of the senate Is followed,- which usually accords a chairmanship to the author of a resolution unless he prefers jiot to serve. • In 1930 Senator Norrls was a 'candidate for reelection, and in 1928 Senator Robinson 'was a candidate for the presidential nomination and was finally nominated for vice president The Dickinson 1 resolution authorizes the expenditure of not tnore than $100,000 to be used by the Investigating committee.

Herman Dau, who lives at Al- Konii, recently showed us a, nf blue-flame burner which he has Installed in his kitchen range. He says it operates economically. C.. E. Wandling has moved from the' St. Benedict neighborhood to Wesley. Mr. Wandling, who Is a carpenter by trade, says the outlook for work u» ate Une is National banks are organized for private profit, als.o state banks, so that our entire banking system is corroded by the lust for private profit. Some men can be trusted, some can not, but both kinds get Into the business, and the net result is that with dishonesty, plus greed, plus Incapacity, the waters are troubled and the honest man goes down with the others. To this cause of bank failures must be added a number of others. Some can not be eliminated. One is the fallibility of man; another, tho influences of rotten politics. There are honest politicians, but all politics humanly conducted is rotten. The Federal Reserve banks are creatures of politics. Some of the sponsors try to work in the interest of the nation, but the institutions as they function are political. The founders said the Federal Reserve banks would prevent panics. -They might help do that if they functioned in the interest of the nation, but they actually function in the interest of a group. The group succeeds, but the nation pays losses. .The difference between the Federal Reserve banks and the national and state- banks so far as the individual depositor is concerned is nothing. Deposits of Individuals are eaten up by the Federal Reserve banks, though not directly deposited with such banks. Your note is taken by the local bank and hypothecated or sold direct to the Federal Reserve bank in your district, and it thus becomes a preferred claim ink's assi case of failure of the local bank the depositors pay the Federal Reserve bank first and take what is left through a receiver. The point I wish to emphasize is that the local depositor guarantees his local bank's deposits and also stands between the Federal Reserve bank and loss on discounts or loans. Thus the Federal Reserve bank cannot fail, because the local depositor guarantees his own bank's borrowings from the Federal Reserve bank. The local bank thus makes good to the extent that its stockholders are able or willing to go, and the local depositors make up the balance if any, of the local bank's debts. In other words, our banking laws provide that banking shall be a private business, and that if there are gains such gains shall go to private profit; but In case of loss the loss shall be charged to deposi- jtors. If this system of banking is to continue a charge of about one- tenth of one per cent should 'be made against deposits and become a guarantee fund against legitimate bank failures; also bank examiners should be under bonds to report the truth, if a bank is slipping, and be subject tQ criminal pro**' Girl in Accident.

Too much spread between what the farmer has to sell and what he had to buy. Some lines of trade have learned their lesson, others are still holding on for war-time prices. When a case of eggs sold for $6.00 the farmer's wife could get a pair of $5.00 slip. pers and have a dollar left, but when a case of eggs only brings about $2.60 you have to cut the price of the shoes down to meet the price of the eggs. Depression will end when things are equalized. Heads of big companies are drawing top much salary. The " politicians are spending money like a bunch of drunken'sailors. Taxes are too high. Too many peopletwith government jobs, and now they are talking a sales tax. More red tape, more jobs for lame ducks, and more expense added to everything the poor man eats or wears.
