history of the nation declared James E Neville Minneapolis sec retary of Northwest Bancorpora tion who addressed the Junior Chamber of Commerce at the Y M C A Monday evening Just what this change will be no one knows but every person who has any interest in public affairs should keep in touch with1 every bit of information on the thot now fore most in public life that a problem must be met said Mr Neville who prophesied that the banking question would be bound to come to a head in the next congress as one of the greatest issues before it Young men of today were born nto things more or less as they are while older men have seen many changes take place in manner of liv ing and in the structure of business and wonder just what will happen in the next 10 or 20 years Bank Sysiem Unchanged The banking system of this country is one thing that has re mained almost without change since 1S64 when the national bank act was passed and the establishment o a new plan is imminent The on fundamental change has been th feelers Vescrvc act which follower a currency panic in actua scarcity of money The Aldrich bili suggestinga central bank lackec popular favor but it and other sug gestions led to the present act which makes it possible for a bank mem her of the federal reserve sstem to rediscount its notes and receive federal reserve notes thus making another such shortage almost im possible Mr Neville noted that the Canad ian and English banking system provide for a centralized system Which permits the small town man to do business with one of a few great national banks which extern their branches thruout the nation This plan he added has always been viewed with distrust in the United States Change Is Pending We grew up under a plan of the unit bank probably because this country has always been ono where every man had the opportunity of individual expression A change i now impendingin banking however and the problem is How can we give adequate service in banking to com munities too small in population and wealth to support a bank Quoting John W Pole comptroller of currency as saying the present emergency marks the breakdown of the rural credit system Mr Neville characterised this assertion as too severe He said however that there is undoubtedly a background of distress which necessitates a change m system Backgroundof Distress Mr Neville took from the federal reserve records statistics showing the great number of bank failures m the ninth federal reserve dis trict including Minnesota and the Dakotasand in Iowa an area which has contained the greatest number of small unit banks each depending on an extremely small population in North Dakota in 1920 a population so small that there was a bank for every 788 persons as compared with a bank for every 12315 persons in Massachusetts When congress takes up the banking question some persons be lieve a regional or partial I ranch banking system will be proposed said Mr Neville No one knows what will be done he added but I believe that whatever the solu tion consideratio will be given to a plan of group banking Outstanding Examples As outstanding examples of group banking systems Mr Neville cited the Northwest Bancorporation and the First Bank Stock corporation both midwest and northwest insti tutions which he said allow the unit bank to retain its individuality but band It and others together in for greater strength Group banking has already gone a long way toward stabilizing con ditions was Mr Nevilles claim And this section is the best part of the United States as statistics prove alto it is difficult to convince farmers and the businessmen of the midwest that it is possible for the farming section to be the most prosperous during a depression Are on Bottom Only the most egotistic person would attempt to foretell what is going to happen in the near future said Mr jNevjIle He said he be lieved however that we are now on the bottom and quoted E W Decker president of Bancorpora tion and on the board of President Hoovers national credit corpora tion as saying I believe the na tional credit corporation will later be found to have marked the turn Ing point Mr Neville pointed out that the prestige of tho credit corporation In Paso 11 Crtlimn i Laborer Injured in Fall Into Bin of Hot Cement Izburico Arozco a laborer at the Lehigh Portland Cement company plant received severe burns when he fell into a bin of hot cement ear ly Tuesday morning His ankles right arm and feet were injured The man was taken to Park hospital where physicians said his condi tion was not considered critical SUCCESS EVIDENT KERNAHAN DRIVE Dr C 0 Morong Meets With Visitation Workers at Y M C A Success in the Kernahan visitation evangelism campaign now under way in Mason City seemed certain asreports were given at the first dinner conference of workers served in the Y M C A dining hall Mon day evening With less than half of the more than 400 workers turning in complete reports there were more than 200 who had been won to Christ and the church during the first day of the work Dr C O Morong director during his week spoke briefly to the workers listing some of tho more common excuses given by persons for their nonmembership in the church A few individuals from each church were asked to report any in teresting circumstances that they had encountered in the work and much interest was created as one after another told of some peculiar circumstances relating to the win ningof some person or family to Christ The consensus expressed bv leaders of the various participating churches was that the result of thin work in Mason City would be tho greatest religious benefit that has come to the city in many years Special emphasis is being made to unite families where they have here tofore been divided in their church allegiance and to win persons in those homes where some are already Christian in the attempt to makb for a more solid religious life in the homfaqf the city The meetingclosed shortly after 7 oclock and the workers went out again to spend the evening in visita tion among those whose preference has been stated for that particular church 1
