THE BANK GUARANTY ACT AND THE SMALL BANK The dally papers have described <he new federal 'bank guaranty law fcut probably all but a few readers have not bothered to try to understand it. Ninety-nine out oif 100 leaders have doubtless dismissed it with a cursory glance, and to the •wctent that they have thought about It all have taken it (or granted 'that it could not toe otherwise than '* good thing. It may prove to be that, and ; Again, it may not. The guaranty ol •tank deposits'has never been tried fcefore, in this "country at least, on ; ft national scale. It has been tried on a state scale in eight states, and •In every case ihas failed. That is not 4o argue, however, that what could , Tiot be done on a state scale can- -jiot be done on a national scale. • Nobody can quarrel with the •Jnain object of the law, which is to .-restore confidence in the ibanks and flo away with hoarding. In the course of this depression, with its thousands of bank failures, millions . of people have lost confidence in ibanks and have withdrawn currency for hoarding. This has operated in two ways to deepen and lengthen the depression. In the first place it has withdrawn an estimated .billion and a half from circulation, which, in turn, has slowed up ibusiness and •increased unemployment. In the •second place it has made all bankers afraid of runs, .with results that remind one of the house that Jack 'ibuilt, for it has made the banks afraid to lend, trade has thus been (handicapped, unemployment has resulted, and the lack of purchasing .power due to unemployment has .pyramided disaster on disaster till the whole country has reached an •economic- stalemate. • (But while the new guaranty law «ives promise' that it will stop "hoarding, and to Chat extent will help stop the depression, it is not Without doubtful aspects which are •«f deep concern, and to no class «f citizens more than to the people "Ol our own rural communities, es- jpecially non-county seat bminess men and tributary farmers. Therefore we need to know more about : this law than a inera glance at newspaper headlines can reveal. The government does not guarantee deposits. Instead it sets up a •half billion dollar corporation and «ives it $160,000,000. Another $160,000,000 is contributed toy the *ederal reserve <banks, and, finally, ail toanks which are members of the Jederal reserve system have to con- bank, Algona, Is the only* Kossuth •county (bank In the federal reserve System and is one olf only some 20 state toanks in Iowa which at last reports belonged to the federal reserve system. . (Now, if it were ,an easy, matter for small-town .banks, particularly non-county seat (banks, such as serve rural communities, to Join the federal reserve system—and of course the intent of this law Is in large part to force them to Join— the problem presented to our section of the country toy this far reaching act could be solved without difficulty. But there's the rub. There is ground to suspect that in many ways the problem will knotty, and in many cases unsolvable. Many of our country toanks may have to go out of ..business, and in that event this act will be for our section • another deflationary step after the many that have plunged us ino one morass after another in the last ten years. How. this may came about remains to toe developed as the;operation of the new law progresses, tout the reader can 'get a hint of what to expect ilf he stops to consider that as a condition of membership the federal reserve system- is likely to require a degree of liquidity which many country toanks cannot meet, far beyond what rural banks have in the past observed; and even for banks able to Join, high liquidity thereafter will mean a restricted loan policy, with a large proportion of the resources of every rural community held in city banks where it serves city 'business interests rather than the interests of the rural 'community to which it belongs. Add to this that as a member of the federal reserve system the country banker will in many other j ways be subject to the dictation of j city bankers whose knowledge of and sympathy with rural communities is apt to be small, and you iave reason to view the toanking luture in rural communities under ;his'act with some misgivings. The Colyum Let's Wot be too D—4 Smfoni meticulous the same. By" way Timely Topics The federal industrial- control act is based on the constitutional )ower of congress to regulate in- ;erstate commerce. There must toe some limits to that .power, and certainly it would seem that we have approached them in this far- reaching law. When federal law can say how store clerks, many hours for example, drug may work and how much .they shall be paid, we are surely going a long vay in interpretation of federal powers. There are paving schemes for use of the money coming to Iowa rom President Roosevelt's new mb'lic works act to ipav more main highways. Apparently it was occurred to nabody that it might be well to let state revenues take care of main roads and use the federal unds to gravel the much neglected arm-to-market mud sideroads. In the 60-year period 1 from 1870 ) 1930 the average central Iowa hog price was $6.25, the average 2orn price 46c, and the average aats price 30c. Last week hogs were still in the dumps, but corn was within shooting distance of average, and oats were above average. ... ...,„- ;It seems unreal to read that the tribute one-half of one per cent of dollar Is depreciated in foreign their ^deposits. A ibank^ with a mill-j markets. In our own daily trans- j .-^ ...„, -— L -"—-'actions the dollar seems what it always has been. The depreciation, ion in deposits will contribute $5,000. The funds thus derived constitute the capital or guaranty fund of the corporation. Whenever this -fund drops below onenfourth of one •jier cent of the deposits in all insured banks, then the banks 'have to contribute new capital, and so on as long as they remain solvent. The corporation takes over the wsseta of banks in the system which fo broke and pays the depositors in full. It can issue and sell bonds and notes against the assets it -takes over. (For the first six months of 1934 all deposits of toanks in the system Will! be insured up to |2500. After July 1, 1934, they -will be insured in full up. .to $10,- OOO. Between $10,000 and $50,000 they will be insured 75 per cent; and over $50,000 they will ibe insured 50 per cent. So much for the skeleton of the law; now for some of the objections. To begin -with, the bankers Abject that it takes money belonging to sound (banks to pay losses incurred toy unsound banks, and: is confiscation; secondly, they •gay the law will encourage toad |>ankfii£, that is, taking chances on,' doubtful loans in order to get busi* ness, because it will provide chance-taking (bankers with Mnd», since the public will not care where It banks, if its deposits are guaranteed, and will even prefer doing business with bankers who will •stretch a point to accommodate a is concealed from us because we do not know that we pay the difference in the higher cost of imported goods.'. This is the way 'depreciation always begins, but the people do not understand it till prices reach fantastic heights. A Burlington legislator proposes repeal of the state prohibition laws. Since we have toeer, why repeal? Answer: To permit the manufacture and sale of hard liquors. In this automobile age do we want hard liquors on sale? That's a question for not only Iowa but the nation to ponder carefully. Think it over. When we read history and come upon a crowded, dramaUtc period, we think it must have been exciting to live then. Well, we are living in such a period now. a time as the Germans call sturm rang—storm and stress—and pur great-grandchildren will study it as one of the turning points in American history. These are sound arguments, tout are of more interest in metropolitan centers than in this section. TThe toanks of iNew England and the Middle Atlantic states, for example, -TWould have had to contribute 61.6 . cent of deposits in all closed *anks. II this law had been in operation from 1928 to 1932, though •only 19 per cent of the losses oc- •curred in their territory; and elev- «n toanks in New York City alonV Would have had to pay 22 per cent of all losses in the United States. iLet the big toanks fight out that f»attle for themselves. What concerns us in the mid-west is our Small banks, the banks which serve non-county seat communities. How are they going to fare? Here we must emphasize what the casual reader may have missed above; no bank not in the federal reserve system— there is a tempor- *rfy exception of no importance in this connection — will have its deposits guaranteed. Every /bank not •already a meauiber must either Join the federal reserve system or run seeing its deposits the risk of drained away to guaranteed banks. •' Tho federal reserve system is a «reat and necessary system, but there are some disadvantages about fceing bossed toy it. National toanks Opinions of Editors DEAR A1L1BN—I plead guilty o misspelling that word "Inadvertent." But pray tell me, why did your linotype operator omit the quotation marks «t the end of my fat lady's retort, and why,did the proof reader overlook of r-r-revenge I am tempted to reveal to your readers that Miss Thompson once boxed your, ears with the algebra book when you were kept after school What a young rascal! —iDoc the Bro-in-iLaw Why did the lino operator omit the quotes, and why did the p. r fall to ''re'store-'r'them?.'.Well/, evidently it was because they dldn'1 see,'em. .Which leads us to sponge a little medical information, what's the cause, Doc, of these shimmer- Ing blind spots we've had occasionally .this last year or so? The kind in which a printed space an eighth of an inch in diameter looks like blank paper? All right, go ahead and tell 'em about that box on the ear. You ought to know, for you were right there in the next seat, and you got a box just like it. And anyhow we told the Colyum fans about it last fall, when we tried vainly to find Miss Thompson and apologize—43 ans apres! Oh For An Age That's done! (Olathe,. Kans., Mirror.) A woman In this town recently asked me if I remembered when the boys used to autograph the girls' petticoats, and now I'm wondering if in the dear, dead days beyond recall I missed something. WE HAVE MISSED "The Rear Seat" column in the iSioux City Journal badly ever since Ja'wn Carey was taken off that desk and made managing editor, with the death (for the time at least) of said "Rear Seat."

Not only fellow column conductors but ten thousand readers still, after a year, miss that scintillating column of rare wit and rich philosophy.

We'll hear just as much about temperance and prohibition during the next 50 years as we have during the last 60. Price Increases Precede Wages. Waverly Republican—Of course it is unfortunate that in some instances retail prices are rising while salaries and wages are not increasing. However, salaries and ^fages remained unchanged at their high level for a time after prices, began to drop, and the new rising price level will eventually mean higher wages and greater employment. Voters Still Demanding Change. iBritt News-Tribune—The vote last week in which two-fifths of one half of the, voters of Iowa voted "wet" was not a surprise.

'TMflB OHABM OF THE Screen *. version of Reunion of Vienna lies chiefly in the interpretation spectators place upon it according to one's own thoughts and emotions. In the hands ot Lunt and Fontanne (who played In the stage production) there could have been no doubt whether the wife. gave herself to her erstwhile lover; but in the screen play, the producers (with an eagle eye on the censors) have given the title roles to the less lusty and more mature John Barrymore and the lovely, somewhat maternal Diana Wynyard. And we are not quite so sure about the wife's infidelity. Not quite! Reunion in Vienna belongs to that type of sophisticated, light comedy which has become . the vogue in post-war years. It concerns othe fortunes, or misfortunes, of members of the Hapstourg aristocracy, who find themselves,' after the war, reduced to menial jobs as servants and taxi-drivers. The Archduke comes back to celebrate a reunion, and there meets an old sweetheart, now married to a psychiatrist. He wooes her with the old-time vehemence, and when she runs out on him, he follows her to her home and meets her husband. Then for awhile things look gloomy indeed for this romantic gentleman; but the husband, after a brave start, falls (back into the role of Jealous, suspecting spouse, which leaves the Archduke a loop-hole. But 'whether he ac- ;epts the doubtful challenge which he husband throws him must be eft to the individual reactions of he audience. The scene is so cleverly handled' and so free from of- 'ense that it is a tribute to Sydney Franklin, who directed the prodiic- on-. One cannot see a picturization of pre-war aristocracy without a strange feeling that perhaps the world has lost something it cannot regain, in the .present state of our democracy. Then, at least, there was one. class of highly cultured .men and women .who were happy and looked on life as a gay and delightful adventure; Under our present system of big business and mass production of everything.from a shingle nail to a lover's kiss, it is difficult to find anybody who is happy and contented. Have we perhaps killed the goose which laid the golden eggs of happiness, in our mad rush to capture the illusive phantom called materialism? pURtRENT COMMENT among the ^ feminine customers discloses the curious fact that while styles in hats and frocks are in a constant state of flux the same does not apply to the movies. The Bar. barian is as outmoded as a hobble skirt, yet the women like it. Apparently the sheik idea of caveman tactics in love-making still has its lure. Even flagellation has been introduced into this picture with a vengeance, thereby adding an exotic touch which is quite daring (not to say sensual) in its significance. Some of the newer gangster pictures have shown scenes in which "rats" are horse-whipped; but, somehow, the spectacle of a beautiful woman submitting to the lash is carrying the thing a bit too far. The plot runs true to form. The depression seems to have hit even the desert, when the son of a rich Arabian 'prince is compelled to act as guide for tourists. By fair and foul (principally the latter) means he trails his woman (Myrna Loy) into the wide-opeji places of Death Valley, Arabia,-U. S; ^..."where he all but marries her. She finally cools his ardor toy throwing a gallon of cold water into his face; but, nothing daunted, he reaippears just as she is about to marry an English gentleman (Regis Toomey, than whom there could be no more horrible actor), and for no good reason at all she ups and runs off with him. And the mystery is explained when the fair Myrna confides in her noble sheik the apparently important fact that her mother was an Egyptian. 'It Is difficult for a white-collar male to explain the fascination which greasy, swarthy lovers of the nigger maminy v61ces the sentiments of all of us when she saya "No man's legs ain't no treat /to me!" But when Harry picks up the voluptuous Lillian Bond and carries her across a stream with her skirts above her knees-*-well, that's a cat of different color! Another musical technicolor short called Pleasure Cruise' (or words to that effect) is a fast-moving, sprightly .reel featuring-hula dancing and a great deal of doubtful singing. Photographically it is above the average, but musically pretty awful. Perhaps It's the heat. Maybe it's ideal hot -weather entertainment. We leave that to your own judgment R EGARDLESS OF PROGRAM, the Call is Algona's only relief from oppressive heat. To sit in its comfortable -seats in cooling comfort 'is' surcease from the torrid atmosphere outside. For this reason we may Well Ibe charitable in criticism of pictures. Too Busy to Work is one of Will Roger's weakest characterizations. It suffers from lack of "go". Will's drawling, homely philosophy is all right when supported by a snapipy, swiftly-moving plot; but when we listen to It reel after reel without interruption it gets monotonous.

Merrlam, who had for some years been In failing health, died Friday at the home ot his daughter, Mrs. Hattie Burlingame, southeast of Algona, where he, his wife and daughter Ada had for nine years made their home. Me suffered strokes, and after the last one last spring he was for some weeks a patient at the Kossuth hospital. Family funeral services were conducted at the home Sunday afternoon at 1:30, followed by public services at the Methodist church, Lu Verne, with the Corwith Methodist pastor in charge. Burial was made in the 'Lu Verne cemetery. Mr. Merrlam, who was in his 71st, year,, was born October 2, 1862,-at iRaritan, 111. When he was 14 his parents moved to Meriden, Conn., where he.grew up. When he Was 20'he i came -west-and' on February 1, 1883, at Morrison, Iowa, he was married to Catharine Maria Thompson. They settled on a farm near Lu Verne where they lived many years. Mrs. Merrlam and seven children survive: Mrs. Jennie Mitchell Alice Mrs. Mrs. and Harry, Corwith; Mrs. Cole and Albert, Lu Verne; Kate Stephenson, Algona; Burlingame and Ada. There are 17 grandchildren. A brother Albert lives at Hubbell, (Minn., and a brother Ezekiel at Meriden. Mr. Merriam was for many) years prominent in republican politics when he lived near Lu Verne. 2O Years Ago From the Advance of June 18, IMS.

If you are interested in a new treatment of an old subject, see I Loved You Yesterday; but don't ask us what the title means. Kittenball Teams To Play 2 Games Tonight At Park :A double header kittenball game will be played tonight at Athletic park, when 'the 'Advertisers and Gamble's will r tangle? at 6, and a game between Gamble and Skelly will follow.

An interesting race between an automobile and a train on the M. & St. L. was reported, when Marguerite Moe [Kenefick], then a high school girl, took her mother to Corwith. Mrs. Moe wanted to go to Forest City to be with her sick mother, but missed the train to JGorwith, where she could make connections, so they used the car They left Algona immediately after the train did and got to Corwith ten minutes ahead of it, though the road was four miles longer. The automobile traveled at 20 miles and the train at 16. It was considered a feat then to beat a train. There was to be no official July 4 celebration, but the business men had united to offer a $1,000 purse for automobile and motorcycle races at the fair grounds July 5-6.
