LONSbALE Presldertt American Bankers Association W E ALL remember the story of Ichabod Crane and the headless horse* man. There was the dark form by the Side of the road— thundering hoofs on the Sleepy Hollow highway — And Ichabod fleeing In confused terror before this terrible monster. tf Ichabod had only known that Ills hobgoblin was an Inventive rival disguised with a a pumpkin head, he would have bad a good laugh and gone on with the business of vanquishing his competitor. What Ichabod really needed was a modern flashlight Then he would hare discovered the trickery at once. Many business men need the flashlight of analysis to uncover the hobgoblins In their business and then they might sit back and langh at their rivals who hesitate to Investigate and learn the truth. At this time, when business and banking are making strenuous efforts to have a clear vision ahead, It la especially important that the power of research and analysis be employed to their fullest extent. When these twin brothers of good management have been pressed Into service In all fields, I am confident wo shall see a further lessening of. periods of stress. However, t believe business In general has learned the : valuable lesson that any prosperity that Is not leavened! with a little adversity would not seem basically safe or sound. John G.

Ht Sadler, SAVINGS PASSBOOKS SOUGHTBY CROOKS Use Them to Steal Money by Forged Slips — Should Be Guarded as Carefully as Cash. Continual vigilance In safeguarding savings pass books, as well as blank and cancelled checks, against theft by crooks, who use this material In forgery operations, is urged on bank customers by James to. Baum, Deputy Manager of the American Bankers Association, in charge of Its Protective Department. Tills department Is continually vigilant In promoting means, both among bankers and the general public, to thwart the operation of bank crooks. It aqnually investigates hundreds of crimes against banks and Is responsible for the majority of arrests among this class of criminals. "In a large majority of cases of forgeries on checks or savings withdrawal orders Investigated by the American Bankers Association, stolen blank checks or savings pass books were the forgers' chief stock In trade," Mr. 3aum says. "In many Instances the temptation presented through the careless handling by depositors of cancelled or blank checks or pass books eo that they fell Into the hands of others was the Immediate stimulus for hitherto honest people to commit their first criminal offense." Banks should educate their depositors to exert the same degree of care In handling these instruments and to avoid leaving them about unguarded as they exercise in respect to actual money because they represent money, be declares. For dealing with the bank robbery situation, Mr. Baum recommends the use of electrical alarms actuated by any tampering with the wires or mechanism and also wider adoption of the plan of state police forces now employed in a few states, declaring that last year in seven eastern states where state police forces were maintained there were only 20 bank holdups as against 164 similar attacks perpetrated against banks in five states in the central and far west, where banks are denied the advantages of the speedy and co'ordinated action given by statewide police forces. "The records of the American Bankers Association Protective Department reveal that for many years the odds in favor of state police protection have been at l^ast 8 to 1 when measured by the exp-.-tence of oanks in states whera "efficient police protection is missing In the rural districts," he says.

THE THINKER LEADS MODERN PROGRESS By JOHN Q.JLON8DALE >$ y President''American Banker*^ " - Association J 1 „"£."*/ nren greatest need of the world to* day Is' interpreters o'f our time* —modern' ,Danfelf In agriculture, Inance," poHtloef ndustry — who :an 'see through he fog and haze hat enshroud our difficult problems and advise, instruct, and Influ- jnce those who are either Indif- erent or limited n their percep- ions. Through the hlnker and the John G. Lonsdale uterpreter, u n- known situations are disclosed or moling conditions explained in logl- v al light. The American people are so constituted that they can meet and combat any situation once It Is known and understood. It Is the unknown hat comes like the thief in the night and brings disaster. Some one has defined prosperity as something the business men create for the politicians to take credit for. 3ut America's present-day prosperity [ can be defined as a product resulting from the business man's ability to study and to interpret. Huge corporations maintain research staffs and special bureaus to Interpret the times for them. Disaster looms in the ofiiiif! for any Industry that goes blithely on its way day after day without due re ganl to significant trends In trade and buslnpsy. Keeping Up With Change Leaders ot finance have discovered that they cannot remain passive In an ago when all the rest ot tbe world Is in a transitional stage. The modern banker not only must know about the changing styles in other lines of business, but above all must be alert to the transformations which are taking place In bis own. He must be a man of keener, broader vision, because the order of the day Is for larger units of service. Mergers and consolidations have taken place In great numbers. We now talk of billions where a few years ago we talked of millions. We have only begun our changes. Whnt disposition is to be made of tbe many problems that they bring will depend In large measure upon our leaders, upon the students and the interpreters who can read accurately tho signs ot tbe times, so that wo may base future actions and hopes upon their wisdom. Tbe quickest way to go to the top is to go to the bottom of things, and let us hope tbat onions them will be found many who will not only aspire to leadership but will b' nuccessful In caching their e n »'- BANKERS REPORT DROP IN SAVINGS Lure of Stock Market Partly to Blame, but Slackened Speculation Expected to Bring Return to Thrift. •. The tlrst recession In the nation' savings account In banks in the twenty years during which records In this field have been kei?t by the American Bankers Association was disclosed for last year in the recent annual compilation prepared by Its Savings Bank Division. The shrinkage amounted to over 5195,000,000. on the basis of figures for the year ending June 29. 1929, whereas a ear earlier the reported Increase was over $2,300,000,000, the largest ever recorded. The number of savings depositors also decreased during the year covered by more than 500.000 accounts. The lure of the stock market and affiliated activities are cited as part of the explanation for these changes. , The association's .statement says that savings deposits' in banks and trust companies of continental United States on June 29, 1929, stood at $28,217,656,000.

This Is shown, the commission says, by a theoretical forecast, on the basis of the past six years, of additional earnings that -would be disbursed to member banks during the next six years under two plans tntro- duced In bills before the United States Senate. "The Fletcher bill provides that Federal Reserve Bank earnings', after present 6 per cent dividends to members and completion of a 100 per cent surplus, should all be distributed as extra dividends to the stockholder banks," the report says.-' "K t&e earnings of each Federal ReServ ; fl,,,bank were distributed among'its owp.,jnem- bers there would be no .extra dividends in the Boston, New-York, PhUa : idelphia, Cleveland, , ,^ .Francisco district; during: 'x.yearj^ut^fl^qlh-^ -•- , , . influegces'ln one year have taken die gain that might, reasonably have peen expected In savings'-deposlts for }929 and lowered them from the.jjlgh mark of the preceding year.

From a gain of more than 2 J A billions of dollars in savings deposits to a loss of almost 200 millions! "Tbe loss In savings deposits is reflected also In the loss ot savings depositors. The year 1929 showed a total of 62,604,127 depositor!), against 63,188,348 for 1828, a loss of 624,221. "Industrial production was ra'ucn higher last" year than the preceding year. Factory payrolls were considerably greater, In production, employment and trade, advances were made over the preceding year, in tbe farm areas the improvement noted tor 1928 did not reced^ln.1929 and the livestock Industry In Till its branchea was prosperous, " The Causes of the Drop "The causes of the recession we possibly multiple. There Is scarcely any reason to doubt that one of the important (actors draining away savings and decreasing depositors has been the lure of profits to be made in Blocks. For a number ot yeavs tbe people have been regaled with stories of profits made in stocks in all types of companies. During tbe last tew years there bss been a specious philosophy preached tbat panics such »a formerly'occurred were no longer possible. "If It was (.he lure of profits in stocks which caused tbe recession iu savings, then a factor iu future savings will be the success attendant upon this venture of savings depositors in stacks, If tbe experiment dW not prove generally successful, then another year will doubtless witness an increase In savings deposits as well aa in savings depositora." u. w .._,. 7 6.0?'p'ej sent; Atlanta, '4,09. 8t.ALoty»,'3.BO per cent; SOnneapolis 9.B?~ par cent; Kansas Cltj, G^pe cent?*Julias, "4.83 per cenfi,.-,"'-"" ; >• 'fU the earnings were -pooled and paid'out to all members in"al} r district* sach member would receive-an average annual extra dividend of .78 per cent.
