Will Pave Through Swea City. Swea City Herald: Paving operations n road No. 8 will be switched probab- y this Thursday to the extreme west nd of the project on the west boun- ary of Swea City. The change Is made y reason of right-of-way trouble arising from between 300 and 400 feet of elocatlon of the road adjoining the ormer Duhigg section on the east side f the town. Title to this land Is more r less involved at this time and the iate highway commission has been orced to enter condemnation pro- eedlngs in order to get possession of and for the relocation of 300 to 400 eet of road. The paving machine vill be moved this week from a point ome 400 feet east of 'he east boundary ne of the town to the west boun- ary line. By the time the mile ex- .ending through Swea City Is paved it j expected the state will have pos- esslon of the 300 to 400 feet adjoining the Duhigg section, the paving machine can proceed across this short tretch and some four miles of paving >n the west end of the project will >e completed. The Hallett Construction company has made rapid progress having laid more than two and a half miles hi two weeks. Meanwhile Mrs. A. W. Bruce's residence will be moved to one side to al- ow the paving to go through. Mrs. Bruce has bought Mrs. J. L. Poole's residence where the Frank D. Trevett's live, but under the terms of their lease the Trevetts have thirty days In which to move. Mrs. Bruce meanwhile will live where she Is. The Bruce residence will be sold New Fen \V/V-.

Larger scale group or branch hank- ing wilt Inevitably bring a new era of banking organization and operations to the United States and bankers -will have to develop "new conceptions, new administrative methods and new economic views," Rudolf S. Beebt, Chairman of the Economic Policy Commission of the American Bankers Assoda* tion, recently tbld the members of the American Institute of Banking. The Institute Is the educational section of the association and he emphasized the point that the new era In banking demanded "that we must step- up our education BO that hanking shall be fortified for new responsibilities." What the Future Calls For "We must broaden our social conception of banking," Mr. Hecht said. "Not anly lor the technical operations of the new banking must we fit ourselves, but both as individuals and an organized profession we must charge ourselves with serious consideration of the BO-' jlal problems that are involved. Already we hear murmurings and fears md doubts as to whether the changes that are coming about In banking In •.he extension of group and branch systems do not constitute the looming of i new financial menace, a monopolistic threat not only to the individual unit banker, but to the financial liberty of loclety In general. I am stating these things merely as facts that must be taken into consideration In our studies. "Public opinion cannot DO Ignored by any husiness, least of all by bank- Ing, which Is admittedly semi-public In character and Is, therefore, suhlect to special supervision by the constituted authorities. If banking develops tendencies that give rise to public tears, we must so conduct ourselves as to reassure all doubts.

Special: The Four- H club members gave a six o'clock banquet in honor of their mothers in the Methodist church parlor Wednesday evening. The dining room was appror priately decorated in the club colors, green and white. Seasonable flowers lent charm and color to the table. There were seventeen guests present. 'Mothers enjoying the courtesy were: Mesdames L. J. Dreyer, M. Weisbrod, J. H. Jensen, E. J. Frank, Chas. Glaus, Herman Dreyer, Mr. Meyers, Theodore Blackwenn, John Gramenz, F. J.

August Braatz of Whittemore was arrested last week and charged with maintaining a liquor nuisance. The officers found a gallon or so of alleged alcohol in his home. He was brought before Judge F. C. Davidson and pled guilty. He was fined $300.00 and costs and a three months' jail sentence was suspended on his good behavior. Nazarene (Church. Sunday school at 0:45 a. m.

Bcliavioristic Theory The theory of behaviorism is a theory and method of psychological study, based on the conception that sound psychological progress must resi upon a purely observational and ob Jective analysis of behavior, thus avoiding the "psychological fallacy." which does not both render service to the public and at the same time con-* vince the public that it Is rendering that service. Banking, therefore, must take cognizance of what the public Is saying of this new era In Its development. "It must be part of the technique of modern banking administration, whatever form our enlarged Institutions take, to avoid the creation of monopolies, or even the appearance of such a centralization of financial power as to be able to exercise, an un- 3ue Influence over public or private finance or other lines of business. The . public's right to the safeguards of fair competition must be observed. s Mutt Preserve Individual Initiative "It must also be an Item of management that Individual Initiative and opportunity shall be maintained. If America has outstripped other nations In the distribution of. the benefits of its progress, It Is due to the fact that there are no barriers of social caste or business tradition against advancement for character, ability, and initla- tiva American business has learned that It serves itself best by encouraging by every practical means Individual ambition and Initiative, and hurts Itself most by repressing or neglecting them. Competition for efficiency, both within an organization and between organizations, will prevent any institution from long enduring In which maintenance of opportunity and recog- oitlon of Initiative are not controlling principles of management. As heads of the greatest of our financial and Industrial institutions stand men who started from the humblest of beginnings. Through all the grades of executive authority and reward stand men In positions In keeping, generally speaking, with their Individual merits. I, personally, see no reason for fearing that the enlarged banking organizations which the future may hold would necessarily supply future bank employees with any lesg opportunity for achievement than unit banking.

Davidson on theft charges; They are the sons of Mrs. Ed. Williams. The youths were found guilty of a number of thefts from Ruthven, Spencer and Emmetsburg stores and automobiles.

Williams, a mile east of Ruthven. The thefts were made over a period of several months and there were dozens of complaints of petty larcenies.
