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.

Bankers are not likely to wake the mistakes made by the ordinary person. They are not deceived by impressive looking stock certificates, plausible letters from brokers or charming voices over the telephone urging them to buy this or that. Your banker Is a hard headed business man who Inves tigates thoroughly before he Invests the bank's money. For this reason many conservative persons prefer to keep their savings in a savings bank, knowing that their money is In wise hands and that even though the rate if Interest they get may be moderate heir money Is far safer than it would he if it were Invested less skillfully.\ \Surely though, it must he postfible 'o get more than 4 per cent on your money and yet be safe,\ Maud said. “It is under certain conditions,’* Aunt Emmy agreed \The trouble I? ihat so few people are frank about iheir money matters with men who eally can be trusted for advice.

It has, at times, reached ihe point of oppression. The Federal lax of 1920 aggregated more than five and one half billion dollars. This year, after strenuous efforts to reduce ihe war time peak, the total still ex ceeds three billion dollars -a sum far greater than the entire burden of funded debt accumulated as a result of the Civil War. State and local taxes have increased at an even greater rate, Taxation has become more than a problem; It Is a threat of impending disaster. Nor ts the burden of government limited to taxation. We are oppress ed by a multiplicity of restrictive, laws and administrative regulations. It is estimated that there are over two million laws and ordinances la the records of nation, states and mu nicipalities. One adult person out of every twenty engaged in business or industry is a government official, agent or employee. in the face of this reeerd, despite the general recognition of the over whelming burden of government, we find ourselves constantly waging a defensive battle against plans and programs which would transfer still greater duties to government, which would hamper individual taftiatPvs still further, which will—if put into practice—erush individual ambition and destroy individual opportunity. Under these circumstances it is our right—it is our duty—to affirm and defend sound principles of political faith as we have, on other occasions, supported sound principles of eco nomic progress.
