What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

; \GIVE TBETUTT CHANGE,” IS PIE* OF DR. H. LEO TAYLCR Chautauqua Third Afternoon. “Give the Boy a Chance” will be the plea of Dr. H. Leo Taylor when he comes here on the third after­ noon of Chautauqua.

Phillips, presi­ dent of the State Bank Division of the American Bankers’ Association by means of a questionnaire sent to 11,- 000 state banks. The result indicated that an overwhelming majority of them are, in fact, friendly to the System. Two questions were put to the banks. The first was as follows: “Do you believe that the Federal Reserve System has been beneficial to the agricultural, commercial and banking interests of the country and that it should be perpetuated?\ To this 4,934 replies were received. Of these 4,024 voted \yes\ without qualification, and only G1 voted \no.” Further answers still coming in when this tabulation was made indicated the same favorable trend. The second question asked by Mr. Phillips’ committee was: “If your not being a member should contribute to the destruction of the System, would you join?\ While the great majority of the state banks are not members of the System, largely for technical reasons, the answers showed that the bulk of those non-members who are eligible lo join would do so if such action were necessary to save the System. To his second qii'slion 2.S76 tm e been recorded as \oung \yes\ and' only 725 as “no ’’ Many refrained from voting on tin’s question because un­ der the present rules they are in­ eligible for m embers hip. Some replies voiced certain crit­ icisms of the System, but these uni­ versally dealt w h details of admin­ istration o\ of tin* rules anil not with the principles of the institution. FIGURE IT OUT YOURSELF What Do the Bankers Mean, “ Eighteen Billion Dollars in the Savings Bank” ? ade. We are all prone to believe that we are doing every necessary thing for our boys, but Dr. Taylor shows the way to do more for the future citizen on whom the pros­ perity, tranquillity and perpetuity of our nation, depends. Dr. Taylor is a man of strong personality and fine stage presence. “A torrent of eloquence,” he has been called by many. The prin­ ciples and ideals he presents find a nesting place in all hearts.

( , - t By JOHN OAKW OOD The bankers keep telling us that the savings accounts of the American peo­ ple total eighteen billion dollars. 1 asked a dozen people what that meant to them. Most of them seemed to see visions of endless stacks of coins and bales of currency stowed away in tl^e vaults of fine looking granite bank buildings. • * * Now, as a m atter of fact, there is less than nine billion dollars’ worth of money in the country all told, in- j eluding gold, silver, nickel and paper { money of all kinds. That is less than ■ half the eighteen billion. Therefore there must be something wrong with the vision of eighteen billion dollars in stacks and bales in the bank vaults. More than that, there probably is not more than one dollar for every twenty of that eighteen billion actually in the savings bank. ,. * * ♦ But the eighteen billion in savings f bank is no myth just the same. Sup- ! pose all the saviugs depositors could demand all their money all at once, and that they insisted on immediate settlem ent one way or another when they found they could not get it all' in cash. What would happen would be that they would come into posses­ sion chiefly of bonds—Government, state and municipal bonds and the best railroad, equipment, public util­ ity and other corporation bonds. The savings depositors are real’y the own­ ers of all this vast real wealth. * * * WJiat the bankers really mean, therefore, is that the savings deposit­ ors, so far as money is concerned, have deposited eighteen billion dol­ lars more than they have drawn out ami therefore have credit for that much in their savings accounts. Th* dollars, themsehes, that they handed in. have flowed right on through the b ks—h ir boon :*-nt out to buy the bonds That is. the money deposits ha\o Imou O F F IC E OF C O U N T Y TR E A S U R E R T E T O N C O U N T Y , M O N T A N A .
