April President Roosevelt definitely cast aMde today the McLeod bill for payment of depositors In closed banks In shaping up the administration's for an early conclusion of congress. The president Is understood to regard It as impossible to do Jus- tice In any attempt to pay off de- positors In closed bunks such .is proposed In the McLeod bill. He has. however, directed tl.e officer.' of the Reconstruction corporation and the treasury to seek a more liberal policy In making loans on a.-sot.1- In closed banks. He feels this Is the only sound and Just solution of the problem. It was pointed out at the White House that In the case of two bonks which closed at the same time In the same town one might have been In a position to pay off Its depositor? at fiO cents on the dollar and close Its books while the other, because of Its assets has still made no pay- ment. The latter bank, under terms of the McLeod (R-Mlcli) bill, pay off with government money at 100 cents on u dollar, although It In poorer shape than the bank which paid off at cents on the dollar and whose depositors would not benefit from the proposed legislation. Another thing Mr. Roosevelt Is concerned about Is how far back the government should go in making up losses In closed banks. Just because the government tried to keep banks open tin White feels there Is no moral obligation on Its part to pay off depositors In those Instl Illtinnr. which closed.
