LONSDALE 0 President American Bankers ' Association <5OME) seem to think that the day of "* the individual in business has passed. But they are wrong. While the i n d i v 1 d ual may not attract such outstanding attention as he did in the days of old when Institutions were con ducted on a smal ler scale, he nevertheless is to be found in any large corporation, dominating the situation, giving John G. Lonsdale orders here, cooperating there and shouldering the responsibility of keeping a large group of lieutenants, captalrg and privates working in unison and moving forward under tho banner of progress. And all of these nre held accountable to the public because the public has entered into a partnership agreement with the corporation through purchase of stock.

It is gratifying to note that our corporations are giving more and more concern to the welfare of their workers. Numerous benefit organizations have been formed, opportunities offered for advancement of education and position, hospital service established and insurance and retirement pensions provided. This general humanitarian movement in reality is the outgrowth of analysis, which has disclosed the need of improving the well-being of our individual workers, realizing at the same time that our institutions will benefit. gggey Man Will Get You ou iJon^Wateh Out Unfortunately, a great deal of unwholesome merchandise is being eased off on the consuming public this year. As far as looks go, you can't complain. But constitutionally, it's very suspicious. It isn't strong. Its heart action is bad. It has very little chance of surviving to a ripe old age. But because it looks attractive nad the price Is low and it is being sold to the tune of the Insidious old refrain about market conditions and falling prices, it may persuade you against your better judgment. So be careful. Examine everything. Buy from reliable stores. Don't be taken in by false whiskers, no matter how handsome and plausible. Here at Chrlschilles & Herbst, we are doing our best to protect our customers, ourselves and our manufacturers by working the "Bureau of Standards" overtime. Occasionally, we get fooled, for we can't test every single thing that comes in every single day. But we know when wash silk is wash silk. We know our fabrics are fine and upstanding. We are as sure as it is humanly possible to be sure and you are at least sure that what you buy here will be as represented or we will make it right. And htat's something, nowadays. Miss Kcrr, our new corsetiere, has been making corset history around the department lately. You know, we have enlarged and redecorated our corset section and it's really a very pleasant and comfortable little place. Let Mass Kerr show you the new foundation garments. Styles change in corsets faster than they do in automobiles these days and an old girdle is about as passe as :i Model "T" Ford. Even though the skirts are longer, the interest in women's legs continues to occupy a foremost place. Whatever that means, we have three of the best hosiery lines in the United States right here — Phoenix, Kayser and Munsing, and if there is a shade or a size missing, it's only because we just can't kepe 'em all ni stock at the same time. From $1.00 to $1.95, you'll find outstanding values here. ' We've, built-in some attractive shelving on the balcony for our blanket stock and with all the new, bright color combinations of the new blankets, it makes a very pretty display.. Blankets are lower in price — and quality is u little better, it anything. Don't let anyone sell you a blanket at a BIG REDUCTION — there's something wrong with it. We know because we have to buy them. More new and snappy misses' dresses have arrived from the west- erncoast — it begins to look as if styles originated in Hollywood and not in Paris. All the girls can't hope to look like Gloria Swanson or Norms Shearer, but at least they can wear the same styles. And that's something. And we're not so sure but that some of our local girls couldn't make a name for themselves in the "bright lights". At least, come in and look over these new dresses. NEW YORK.—Months of conference and negotiation between an American Bankers Association special committee and the Committee of the Association of States on Bank Taxation have resulted in an agreement on a form of amendment to tbe Federal 'statute dealing with state or local taxation of national banks that "maintains the integrity Of the protective principles of the section and is satisfactory to the commissioners' committee," says the American Bankers Association Journal. Thomas B. Paton, the organization's General Counsel, In making, the an* nouncement eays that previously proposed amendments to the statute, which is known as Section 5219, have been opposed when it was felt their terms would enable any state to place banks in a tax class by themselves. "The law as it stands today," Mr. Paton says, "permits state or local taxation of national banks or their shareholders In one or the other of the four following forms: the share holders upon their shares,—a prop erty tax; tbe shareholders upon the! dividends,—a personal income tax the bank upon its net Income; the bank according to or measured by it net income. Only one form of tax cai bo Impo_sed, except that the divldem tax may" be combined with the third o: fourth form it other corporations am shareholders are likewise taxed. "The conditions permitted are: the tax on shares must be at no greater rate than on other competing moneyec capital; the Ineorne tax on sharehold ers must be at no greater rate than on net income from other moneyed capital; the tax on bank net income mast be at no higher rate than on other financial corporations nor the highest rates on mercantile and manu facturing corporations doing business within the state; the tax measured by net bank income is subject to the same limitations as the tax on net income of tbe bank but may Include entire net Income from all sources." States Seek Broader Law National banks and their shareholders are taxed In different states under a diversity of systems, he says. The U. S. Supreme Court has held that the low mlllage rate on intangible personal property is in violation of the present law where it results in national bank shares being- taxed at a rate greater .than that assessed upon competing moneyed capital. A number of states, unwilling to use the income methods permitted, had the alternative of either repealing the intangible tax laws or limiting taxation of national bank shares at the Intangible rate. Therefore they sought a broadening of the permissive provisions. Also, Mr.'.^Patoii points-"opt, a. Supreme Court decision held a state's exCiser^tasr onr- corporations invalid where it included income from Federal and local government bonds in the excise measure. This created doubt as to some state bank excise taxes. "Conferences have been held to reach some agreement which would protect the banks, satisfy the tax commissioners and avoid a contest in Congress," Mr. Paton says. "From the standpoint of the tax authorities, the main objectives have been an amendment which would permit certain states to retain their low rate tax upon intangibles and at the same time derive an adequate, but not excessive, revenue from national bank shares, and an amendment which would permit certain states to tax corporations on their net Income, excluding income from tax-exempts, and at the same time derive the same revenue from the banks as heretofore. From the standpoint ot the banks, it has been deemed imperative to maintain the protective principles of Section 5219. The Changes Agreed On "In the proposed amendment the existing provision permitting taxation ot bank shares no higher than the rate upon competing moneyed capital has been modified with respect to certain Intangible tax states only by a provi slon under which, instead of the moneyed capital limitation, the rate Bhall not be greater than the rate upon the shares ot other financial corporations, nor upon the net assets ot individuals, partnerships or aBuocIatlons employed in tho banking, loan or investment buslneuH, nor higher tlmn tho rate aBHcascrl upon mercantile, manufacturing and bunlncKH corporations with head oiflce la the «tat«, "Also an added fifth alternative par missive method, dCHlK'iutbd lift a upfc- ciflc tax, permits a utale, in plif:e u an ad valorem tax on bank Mliar«,-», tt add together total dlvidendo paid UK preceding year and the increase in capital, surplus and undivided profit*, lesa additions to capital or tturpluu paid In by stockholders, and to divide this total by the number of shares. Tho state may tax the shares based upon this amount, but not to exceed the rate on other corporations in proportion to their net profits. "This method is designed for states which have heretofore taxed national banks upon -their entire net income from all sources at a proportionate rate to that assessed upon business corporations. Tho amount which is the basis of the tax is the equivalent of the entire net income from all sources, but being assessed against the shareholder upon Ilia property in the shares and not n tax upon the bank, it is not open to the objection aa an indirect tax on exempt Income."

LONSDALE President American Bankers Association Leadership and success, in a general way, are synonymous. They are both founded upon simple codes of thought and afr> ' tion, upon the realization that ha who wins the laurels must be a doer, not a waiter, that application of energy, not time or luck, Is what counts most. A rabbit's foot Is a poor substitute for horse sense. 'Both success and leadership, If they be of the highest quality, are the result of service to humanity. Service has Jjeen aptly described as "the supreme commitment of life." Analyze the lives and times of all great leaders of history and you will find that those whose names are enshrined In the hearts of their countrymen are those who sought to render a needed service to the populace. Leadership, like success, need not. however, be International or national to achieve great renults. There Is room for each of us to be a leader In his community, in his work, in hia church, and in various organizations. One of the Indispensable qualities of leadership Is the ability to persist steadfastly in the face of discouragements. If George Washington had not possessed the quality of persistence, lie and his soldiers would never have survived the hunger and privations which were theirs at Valley Forge. We have too many young men and young women these days saying a job cannot be done. Too many spend beir time explaining why a thing can't be done, Instead of saying, with Irm resolve, that It can be done, and hen going out and doing it Anything hat ought to be, done is capable of eing done. And anything worth dong at all is worth doing well. The ellow who handles a little job in a ig way is always on the road to reater fields.

SECTIONS WHERE SAVINGS DECREASED A reKlonal analysis of the drop In tho nation'* uttvlngs deposits in banks, uw rfccciitly reported by tho American Ijaukeri* Anuoclatlon'B Savings Bank UivlBioi) In Its annual compilation for 1929 showing tbe first recession In national savings in tbe twenty years during which it hag published this data, reveals that ell sections except the New England and the Pacific States groups recorded losses. Tho published figures showed that on June 29, 1929, tbe total savings deposits in banks and trust companies ot continental United States stood at f 28,217,656,000, which was $195,305,000 below the similar total for 1928, when there was an increase of $2,300,000,000 Tbe regional analysis by state groups discloses, however, that the six New England states as a group gained more than $88,800,000 in savings and 152,984 in savings depositors, while tho seyen Pacific states as u group gained over $79,000,000 in deposits and nearly 278,000 in number of depositors.

On several occasions I lost time from my work because of my ailments. I had pains in my back and the gas and bloating which afflicted me after every meal were terrible, I lost weight and strength and soon found myself taxed to the limit to attend properly to my work. "While taking the second bottle of Konjola, I felt myself getting stronger and more energetic, Up to this time I haye taken four bottles, and have gained eight pounds in weight, f suffer no more from those awful backaches and enjoy my meals because gas. no longer forms.
