ROBINSON REOPENS DEBT FIGHT By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON Jan 27 CPA x t E e n to one Again the old battle cry I cast my first ballot on that Issue back In the eighteen nine ties It climaxed a depression much such as this has been prolonged hopeless f e a tured by sug gestions that the established system had bro ken down per manently and would have to be replaced by a new one characterized by threats of revolution So far as anyone could see there was no more prospect of a revival than at any time during the black est period of the present depres sion It was at that juncture that W J Bryan sounded his arithmetical slogan As we know it nominated him for the presidency The fight was hotter than to days has yet developed into but there is no telling how much heat this one may generate In Santo Hole The socalled debtor class was in the same desperate hole then that it is now The figures were smaller but perhaps the proportions were equally formidable The whole world was not in so serious a jam Still the United States was more a world In itself in that era Any way the situation was 100 per cent awful as viewed by folk of the time And W T promised absolute sur cease on short notice if his remedy were adopted aturally heVwcm a following There was difference be tween then anil now Bryan sounded his trumpet just as a presidential campaign was be ginning Burton K Wheeler sounds his with the campaign over and a new administration beginning It by no means follows that to days fight will be less vehement The fight of 1896 was a stem winder while it lasted It was

REPORTS SAVING Half Million Below Budget Appropriations of Last Legislature DES MOINES Jan 27 M Roberts of Independence chairman of the state board of control today announced that the board had ef rected a saving of 554211582 be Juw the budget appropriations of the last legislature Additional savings of 550000 a month below the budget allowance could be saved before the end of the biennium appropriation period July 1 Roberta believes Figuring that the expected sav ings are made during the next six months the 15 institutions operated by the board control will have a balance of more than re maining from ita appropriation of for the two year period from July 1 1931 to July 1 1933 Adding a balance of loft over from the preceding bien nium the boards balance will be near 51115000 Roberts said AUNT HET By Kobert Quillen When a man says his wife wont cooperate wjth him he means she wont let him have his way about an cheer him while hes doin it DBS MOINES Jan 27 Necessity for the creation of a sys tem designed to conserve and pro tect Iowa resources was advanced today by Lieut Gov N G Kraschel as among the reasons for seeking a rebuilding of the state banking structure He also included as reasons the belief that Iowa dependence on federal government loaning agen cies ought to be reduced that op portunity should be offered for the investment of Iowa wealth within the state and that Iowa borrowers should enjoy preferred rates on loons Pointing out that more than 1000 banks have failed in Iowa and that the present banking facilities are incapable of caring for the states needs the lieutenant governor n an interview for the Associated Press said Have Two Alternatives We are confronted with two al ternatives either build a system for Iowa that will be managed by Iowa people who have the Iowa viewpoint that is designed to con serve Iowas resources for the bene fit of Iowa people br allow outside interests to dominate our hanking field He suggested that the latter course would be accomplished by some system of chain banking if immediate action is not taken and that any chain system whose seat of management is anywhere but in Iowa cannot be acceptable to the people of Iowa It is evident to all that a com plete rebuilding of our banking laws Is necessary and it therefore follows that good judgment would dictate the establishment of a sys tem that would be independent of outside forces he said Operate State Banks The first law by the present gen eral assembly was that giving the state banking superintendent au thority to take over and operate state banks without placing them in receivership A short time after the bill had passed Lieut Governor Kraschel announced that legisla tion was being drafted to create a state bank ot Iowa to rediscount paper of member banks The lieutenant governor said he since has received many sugges tions and recommendations from bankers over the state and from interested individuals Some of these suggestions for changes in the banking and credit system may be incorporated in later proposals The state bank of Iowa would accept farm mortgages and similar obligations from member banks and against this collateral would issue debentures or bonds to he sold to investors to obtain funds for loans Creation of the bank would make possible the redis counting of loans procured by first mortgages on Iowa land and city real estate cattle feeding and barnyard loans chattel mortgages and notes Iowa Deeply Indebted Kraschel today pointed out that Iowa is becoming deeply indebted to the Reconstruction Finance cor poration Regional Agricultural Credit corporation Federal Land bank and Intermediate credit bank He estimated that lowans owe nearly to these federal government loan agencies We know that part of these agencies are but temporary emer gency institutions and will be dis continued at the first opportunity ht said expressing belief that the Federal land bank alone is likely to continue Iowa has never recovered from the shock of the federal reserve system in 1921 calling in our loans which approximated about the same indebtedness that we now owe to the federal institutions he gald We now have no reserve as we had then and the discohtin nance of these agencies would find Iowa with no possible means of meeting the call Should Offer Securities The proposed bank of Iowa should offer securities acceptable to the investor and the people in this way keeping some of the state Will Rogers SANTA MONICA Cal Jan banking bill passed the senate During the long ar gument over it so much was printed
