FAULT THAT MOIfEY LEAVES THE COMMUNITY? Society never intended a bank to J>e a chest for burying the savings iot a community. Neither was it «ver intended that a- bank should TJB set up in a town for the purpose of deporting the capital of that community out of town. The economic purpose of a bank is to gather together the savings of a community and loan them back to Sthat community as working capital lor that community to use to cre- jate employment and business prosperity within that community. A statement lies on the editor's ftesk of a bank outside of Council Jtluffs whose banker has been very prominent in the state bankers association. It shows that his bank This editorial is from the Council Bluffs Nonpareil. A Similar editorial appeared recently in the Advance, but the Advance gave the bunkers side also, which is: 1—the attitude of the public towards debt, also as regards withdrawal of deposits, has forced bankers to exaggerate liquidity; 2—state and national banking regulations, sub- rerslve new laws aimed at creditors, moratoriums, etc., have tended to the same end; 3— bankers have felt that the demands of government for investment in government securities could not safely be ignored; 4— there is a countrywide lack of demand for safe commercial loans. fact which was pointed out by Representative Bonnstetter some months ago. The Logan paper's remark that the head tax will have to he boosted if the law is to work out to the satisfaction of candidates for pensions cannot be so easily disposed of. It is commonly assumed that the pension rate will be $25 a month. The state board does not have to adopt this or any other set rate, and in practice the rate will doubtless vary according to cases. However, it is reasonable to suppose that most aged persons who apply will be destitute, and in that event $25 may be too little rather than too much. Assuming the $25 rate, it is interesting to figure out what will happen in case Clay county, where already 102 applications had been filed up to a week ago, turns out to be a typical county. A little figuring reveals that on this basis the monthly county cost of pensions would be $4050, the yearly county cost $-18,600, and the state cost just under $4,000,000! Consider this in the light of the fact that up to a week or two ago only some $800,000 of the dollar head tax due July 1 from all lowaus over 21 had been collected. BE! Old G seems back at hi; Talk, Des Moines. TIMELY TOPICS One of the farces inherent in the old age head tax is revealed in a report from Polk county, which includes Des Moines. Collectors at $5 a day in the city and $4 in the country were hired, and in the end it cost $12,000 altogether to collect $18,461! The prohibitionists seem fairly entitled to a quiet grin at the expense of the state liquor stores. I The stores are apparently not j drawing the expected patronage. (Can it be possible, after all, that ithe long period of liquor drought actually did educate a sizeable proportion of the people out of the liquor habit? The Marshalltown T.-R. says it is costing the i!86 an acre has deported from his home town three-fourths of all the money that tis depositors have put in his bank, .while only one-fourth has been loaned back to the people of his town. If the depositors of that bank really knew that three-fourths of jtheir money was being sent out of 'town when they put it in that bank, Sthey might realize that something Should be done to keep their money fit work at home. This bank is dominated by the 'fear that came over bankers during the depression and panic, but "the danger that hung over the tanker prior to this year has now been removed. There is no longer any danger of Ills depositors start- Jug a run on his bank. The govern- tnent's guarantee of deposits has removed their fear. We have conspicuous examples of building and loan associations loaning all of their funds at home und remaining solvent. We know that jobbers and manufacturers Joan millions to their customers Without loss. Commercial failures are fewer now than they have been In ten years. Home loans can be made with Safety and there is a demand that "banks can meet but refuse to meet 3>ecause of their unwarranted fear. While this fear to make sound loans at home lasts banks are de- •tporting the working capital of their Communities out of town. Until each community's own working capital can be put to work at home we can not revive prosperity or increase employment at home. This bank aforementioned has Sent down to Washington, for the Democrats to spend, exactly one- lialf of all the home town money its jflepositors have put in that bank, .•hich will be irrigated by the new .ams over which the president en- hused last week. Which is some- hing for Iowa farmers required to et part of their farms lie fallow to hink about. Judge Coyle was a candidate for ne of the democratic state supreme court nominations, but got avors to hand out to converts from mother party; they have too many mngry tried and trues of their own to provide for. "America," says Mr. Tugwell, can never prosper if we continue .he practice of economic cannibal- sm." A striking term deliberately meant for morons who can swal- ,ow but can't reason. Nobody knows what it means, but whatever it is. this country seems to have prospered under it in the past far beyond other countries of the world. Many a reader grinned grimly on seeing Friday's cartoon in the Des Moines Register. The spell-binder was telling the farmer how the administration (not nature; no, no!) lad boosted prices of farm crops. 'But," said the farmer (one of the unfortunates who doesn't live in north Iowa,) "I haven't any crops to sell!" It has sent one-fourth of all their money to banks outside of of Iowa in the form of cash on de- jposit in these banks and they have sent some of that to Washington -i_or more bonds. If depositors really knew thai more than half of their funds were being sent down to Washington for democrats to spend, and thai Sully three-fourths of their funds were being sent out of town by that bank, they might seek some other place to deposit their money where it might be put to work at tome. Reading this bank's statement Discloses these facts that half of al its depositors' money has been •Bent to Washington buy government bonds, one-fourth has been sent to banks outside of Iowa ant they have sent some of it to Washington. Only one-fourth of depos "itors funds have been put to work 'at home. So long as this insane fear, which we call extreme liquidity, lasts banks will suck the Jblood of working capital out life government to reclaim some lands he cold shoulder with only •otes.

WILL THE PENSION HEAD TAX HAVE TO BE BOOSTED? This comment in the Logan Observed is typical of what has appeared in a number of Iowa weeklies: "As a political masterpiece nothing ever hung in the Iowa gallery even approaches the old age pen- Hion law now in operation. As a vote trap it. is an excellent piece of work. Probably it was intended to fee jujit that. Actually it is a delusion and 'a. snare. Eventually the laz raw on those who can pay most fce multiplied many times or the whole plan must be discarded on April 12, and here it is mid- August, and no money yet. And no one knows when it will come along. It begins to look like the government can't get any deal over in less than a year. Why Credit is Tight. Estherville Vindicator & Republican—If all the money that is in cold storage in Estherville, were in circulation it would help a lot. Not only that in cold storage, but that on deposit in the post office, and on time deposit in the bank, withdrawn from circulation. The banks don't loan, for those who borrow can't pay, and the postoffice is only a depository. hough slowly, and if you will look up this [last] weed's Plain Talk you may recognize that I have been 'taking my pen in lland" again.

So the only thing I can think of o do, and still be gentlemanly ibout it, is to ask arty of you readers whether you have an old nightie lying about that you aren't using. I don't care what sex the nightie was made for, because I jeen wearing the ones Ma Falstaff cast off for a good jnany years. Now don't get careless and for;et this plea.

AT THE FREE PARTY Friday night (see Society) Mrs. Free (the elder) came in to greet the assembled guests. Diane Duncan, her 3- year-old granddaughter, watched the proceedings gravely, but thought her grandmother was overlooking Diane's^ favorite uncle, George L.

Well, we'd hardly go so far as to say that we have been wholly vanquished by the heat; the semi-annual market trip, and the fact that the cinema has reached the mid-season low, perhaps accounts for lack of erudition in this department the present week. To get back to the heat: it has been our contention, especially this summer, when temperatures have been the chief subject of conversation, that much of the discomfort of excessive humidity could be avoided, if only the mind could be centered upon something else. Thus, it is unfortunate that In the season of the year when heat reaches its greatest heights the activities of humans drops to lowest levels. If the average person had enough to occupy his or her mind, even the discomfort of heat might be forgotten. The roster of Chicago cinema houses is discouraging. Sound in the average metropolitan movie palace has about the same quality as an old fashioned tin-pan "chiv- aree," and the plays are always a week or two behind the schedule at the Call. But we don't go to Chicago for movies alone, speaking now from an entertainment standpoint. The Century of Progress still lures the unwary tourist and visitor; the display of electricity by night is one of the supreme marvels of the Age of Science. The cafes too, with the repeal of prohibition, have taken on a new lease on life. There is an air of refinement about the Gentle Art of eating and drinking which, alas, had been sadly lacking during 12 years. Speaking of eating, we picked up an interesting volume in one of the bookstores of Chicago, a book we have long wanted to own, called the Physiology of Taste, by a Frenchman, Brillat-Savarin. Every man and woman should read it. There is so much more to the art of cookery than just laying out a few doughnuts and a cup of weak coffee and calling It a breakfast; or frying ham and eggs and calling it lunch. The Europeans have gone into the subject in their usual thorough manner; which is why, perhaps, people on the Continent make so much more out of the simple business of living than we money- mad Americans do. But, patient readers, who have been waiting for even the briefest of vacations from the weekly movie-fare will probably be even less interested in this discussion of Transcendental Gastronomy than in the critisim of our current cinemas. And so, we close a futile column with the fervent hope that the Fall talkies will raise our waning hopes to new and unsealed heights and that the League of Decency (already wobbling) will spare us the small pleasure of selecting our own plays and passing on their merits. After all, we'd still like to do our own thinking for a few years. H impossible." That the lasv ia a "vote trap" may be. admitted without charging that it was intended as such by the .democrats.

H. R. Morgan, superintendent of the CCC camp at Forest City, spoke Monday noon at the Country club clubhouse at a joint meeting 'f the Rotary and Kiwanls clubs, 0 strong, and told of the work done in camps by boys from all sver northern Iowa. W. E. McDonald and M. G. Noron, presidents respectively of the Rotary and Kiwanis clubs, presid- d, and Mr. Morgan was introduced by G. F. Towne, chairman of the August Rotary program commit- ee. Enrollment Voluntary. The camps are run by the regu- ar army, Mr. Morgan said, and the army furnishes tents and other camp equipment. The work, however is done under direction of the parks branch of the department of he interior and the forestry divis- on 'of the AAA. Each camp has a staff in part of army officers and in part of men n the park or forestry service, also a medical officer who looks after the health of the men. Enrollment is purely voluntary, athering agencies, usually county, supervisors or superintendents of the poor, pick boys whose parents or relatives are on the poor relief rolls. The boys are taken to the camps, and are there given a phys- cal examination. Then, if accepted, are assigned to a camp and a work tour is made to show them what is being done and what will >e required of them. They can then complete enrollment or not as hey choose. Schedule for the Day. The boys get up at 6 a. m., clean up their tents, eat breakfast, and do necessary camp jobs till 7:50, when they are loaded on trucks and taken to work. At noon lunch is served on the job, and work ceases at 4 p. m. From 4 to 6 they must bathe, shave, dress in uniform. At 6 supper is served, after which they are free. Lights must be out at 9 p. m. Taps is sounded at 10 p. m. the first four nights of the week; Friday nights, at 11:30; Saturday nights at 11:45; Sunday nights at 12:30. Quitters Dishonorably Discharged.

It is estimated at the treasurer's office that life insurance companies, land banks, and other corporations holding farm property in the county pay approximately 250,000 in taxes a year. No accurate figures are available because of the diversity of acreages credited with payments. Checks from companies are often in excess of $10,000 in payment for taxes. One of the large insurance companies, which holds a large number of farms in the North End, has not yet paid 1032 taxes, payable last year, and this has seriously crippled rural schools in some North End townships. The Rock Island is also in arrears, and school funds in the townships through which it runs have been overdrawn. BOY WANTED TO DO chores, near Titonka.
