'· Dutch Newspaper Calls Nixon An International Menace' LONDON (AP) -, News- apers. in the European 'coun- ies o f . the; North Atlantic reaty Organization are coh- erned that uncertainties over resident Nixon's future may c holding up crucial decision international affairs. "Try as one may, it is now mpossible to imagine any -way n which Mr. Nixon could re r ain the authority that the r e s i d e n c y · requires,-"- -The imes of London said "in urging lixon's immediate resignation.: Six of the .seven national pa- ers in Britain have expressed he same attitude, and wish, he seventh, the Dairy Ex- rcss, has not declared its feel- ngs on whether Nixon should uit, although it does not ex- ect him to remain in office. Most newspapers in France, taly and West Germany have vaded direct comment on res- gnatibn, but''several, editorials avc implied that Nixon should tep down to remove a vacuum n U.S. policy-making..- - , "What credibility can he ave with other nations?" sked Paris's Le Figaro. "The, reatest power in the world ius finds itself in an unprece- enled position without a' rul- r." · ' ·. ' " . ' · · La Stampa of Turin, Italy, escribed Nixori as "a 'burden or America and therefore for he world." He "has done his part, but the world can now do without him,".the Italian paper said,' ; arid added that the world should'be : grateful "for all the ?ood he has achieved." The independent Dutch newspaper NRC-Handelsblad of Retard am said Nixon is emerging ''a national and international menace. One might expect that Richard Nixon would no longer jeem himself worthy of the ligh office which he occupies, but such honorable expectations are defiled by Nixon as by no one else." Britain's The. Guardian, a powerful .liberal paper, stated bluntly: "In one of his televised statements, President Nixon declared, 'I am not a crook.' The tapes -have shown him to be both a liar and a crook." The'British Daily Telegraph, a politically conservative longtime Nixon supporter, came reluctantly to. the' conclusion that the · American President should resign. ;' Its editorial said Nixon "slipped -into, one misjudgment after another; into one semi-dishonest after another ... It may be fair to wonder how many other presidents would have immediately resisted the temptation to cover up. and how many could have survived blamelessly the ruthless exposure of his private office proceedings which Mr. Nixon has suffered: but it is fruitless." State Bankers Consider Multi-Bank Holding Companies Pressure to repeal Arkansas' aw against multibank holding companies is coming from big banks wanting to get bigger and not from Arkansans. -Embree Easterly, president of; the Independent Bankers. Association of America said here Wednesday. Easterly was "; speak ing'-at- a ank management' 'seminar - of he Arkansas Bankers Associa-' lion being held at the University of Arkansas. It's a myth that bigness is JCtter, he told bankers and leg- slators attending the seminar. He warned that only the big banks will survive in the rapidly changing financial structure of the country. Adam Aronson, chairman of Mark Twain Hanfehares, Inc. St. Louis 'multi-bank 'holding company, said that if banks lon't provide capital needs and 'inancial services other types of lending institutions will. Multi-bank holding companies can operate in any state that does not expressly prohibit [hem. The 1971 General Assembly passed a law prohibiting such holding companies. However, a proposal to allow them in Arkansas is expected to be introduced" in the "General Assembly in January. The Joint Interim Committee on Insurance and Banking has already held one public hearing on the issue and another is set for Aug. 28. State Sen. Virgil T. Fletcher of Benton said that most informal talk among bankers seemed to favor holding companies. But he said that longer applause at the seminar went to those defending independent or unit banking. Aronson pointed out a survey that showed 61 of Arkansas' 100 largest business had to bank out of state because Arkansas institutions are not l a r g e enough to fill their credit needs. "You can't stay small and raise senior capital," he said. However, Dr. Wayne Dobson, a banking professor at the University of Nebraska, questioned, 'Do you want to change your whole bank structure to support the 100 largest firms in Arkansas?" He said that many .of the large firms borrow capital' in New York so t h a t they' are drawing money out of New York and putting it into Arkansas through wages . paid to workers. Easterly said that multi-bank holding companies concentrate capital in a few hands to such a large extent that some slates liaye had to pass control legislation. He said holding companies often are indifferent to l o c a l needs and have inflexible rules. ^ In History irinmi By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Friday, Aug. 9, the 221st day of 1974.
