RobertB, Chief National Bank Examiner of Kansas City. Senator Pine in making this request of the Congress has done so after mature reflection of the inequalities which have existed in the financial circle of the Tenth Federal Reserve District over a period of several years. Mr.  Roberts in turn and probably in defense of his position has issued a letter to all the banks in his district appealing to the banks io .wire or write a letter-to the Comptroller advising him whether the bank would favor his removal or transfer. He is also mailing the banks in his district copies of telegram that he secured from the Executive Committee, of the Clearing House Association of Kansas City. The supposition is that he, himself asked the Executive Committee for the letter and that it was written only at his request and solicitation. As far as the banks in his district are concerned, regardless of the condition of the banks, of their solvency, the probabilities are that they will never exprefts themselvess as freely as they would care to if Mr. Roberts were not in power, or if he did not hold tbe office of the Chief National Bank Examiner of the Tenth Federal Reserve District. It is only human nature for any one in command to reck his ven-gence on some less powerful foe or antagonist. This rule is no different where bankers are concerned. On account of this fact the bankers in his district will never speak their minds as freely as they would if he were not in power. From the number of banks in the Tenth Federal Reserve District that have been closed in recent years since Mr. Roberts has been Chief National Bank Examiner, the opinion has gained some prevalence that some of the banks were prematurely closed. The opinion is well founded among bankers in his district that some of the banks that have been closed, have been closed without due consideration to the facts and in a manner that is not prompted by sound business judgment. ^Formerly there was some consideration given to the manner of closing banks from the Comptroller's office. They were not closed in a haphazard fashion. The Examiners, themselves, were men whose judgment c*>uld not be doubted. In those times banks were not closed until after the matter had been carefully placed before the Board of Directors and the stockholders and the stockholders given a fair opportunity to make some arrangements whereby the .banks could be restored to a solvent condition and still meet with the approval of the Department. The Examiners in thlbse times, were, as above stated, men of mature judgment. , Lest Some should advance the argument that the closing of the banks recently has been a matter of conditions, let it be known and said that crop failures have always been with us and bad business conditions are no new thing and it need not be inferred that the men who operate the banks are men whose judgment is deficient or who are making their loans without some idea of the conditions which prevail in their community. From the Comptroller's report to the Congress for the year 1928 it will seem where Receivers of National banks have been paid huge sums to liquidate the affairs of the banks which have been closed. The manner in which some the receivers have disposed of the assets of the failed banks, also, in which they have disposed of some of the chattels which secured their loans, indicates that better judgment might have been used. From a business standpoint, it is reasonable to presume that if the farmers in the district in which the banks failed h,ad been allowed to retain their livestock and their tools and wagons they.�could! have done belter for the assets of the failed bank than:to have' sacriflcecf them'bn the auction'block for pitifully small sums. '.' ' Bank failures are not to be, laughed at. They are more serious than .a good many people realize and in the final analysis the failing of a vb'aruria' not^m^ which the assets of the failed bank are wound up',andil|qu�aaf^d."
