Page 2�?the Deming graphic sun., july 14, 1957 editorials still have something in sock Luna county business and civic leaders May have been worrying about economic conditions during the past several months should have found encouraging news in the financial statement of the Mimbres Valley Bank published in this newspaper last sunday. An examination of the report issued As of the close of business june 6, 1957, shows that Overall deposits were Down. But most encouraging was the fact that deposits of individuals and firms were holding up so Well at a time of the year when in an agricultural Community All is going out and nothing coming in. The report shows that total deposits ran $5,814,874.89 or $507,599.91 less than the total at the end of the first Quarter $6,222,421.56. U. S. Government deposits were up Only $533,091 while state and political subdivisions were Down $100,956.11 and time deposits were Down $100,956.11. Deposits of individuals and firms on the other hand totalled $5,062,727.11 at the close of the first Quarter and 84,634,662.08 of the time of the last statement Down Only $428,065.03. As is always the Case this newspaper Man wholly unused to handling Money or Money figures Hopes the above calculations Are Correct. One thing is certain if deposits in a towns Bank Are any indication and experts say they Are local people still have considerable amount of dough left in the old sock Over at or. Trowbridge financial institution. Authorities Call it apathy on our part. We americans were generous when we contributed millions of dollars to fight paralytic polio. We were triumphant when after years of research our scientists developed a vaccine against it and the number of cases dropped 47 per cent last year. Now we Are shocked to hear that according to a recent estimate 58 million americans under 40 who should get this simple effective Protection neglected to do so. What is the word for this neglect polio authorities like the National foundation for infantile paralysis Call it apathy. The dictionary defines apathy As a Lack of interest or but can anybody afford to be indifferent about polio when it strikes it leaves ruin in its Wake crippled bodies disrupted Homes wage earners unable to go on with their chosen work. Indifference in the face of this kind of risk is Folly. Better Roll up your sleeve and vaccinate before ifs too late often there is heard a complaint about a business becoming too big to the detriment of Small business. Those who subscribe to this theory contend that strangling of Small business also strangles the individual and individual initiative. On the other hand Are those who will just As stoutly maintain that big business is not dangerous per be. The question is often debated. The president of one of the nations great Oil companies recently spoke out for big business declaring that it takes both big and Small establishments to meet the requirements of the land. He said it has been Learned that no commercial organization and especially one of great size can exist without creating certain social influences and thereby acquiring responsibilities beyond those of a purely business nature. Then he added a among these responsibilities. Is trying to help to maintain an Economy in which Small and medium size business organizations can play their important roles. Large businesses. Are sometimes thought to favor practices which Are unfair to Small business. Nothing could be further from the truth. We Are As anxious to see efficient Small business firms succeed As Are any of the so called champions of Small business and we believe we Are somewhat More practical in our approach at there Are areas of work extremely important areas where the smal business can do the Best Job. Just As there Are other areas where the Large business Writh vast human and financial resources is needed. An often overlooked fact is that big business is frequently a major customer of the Small business. His theory is that the american Economy is big enough varied enough and flexible enough to require the services of efficient businesses of every size and kind. Industry like farming has undergone a tremendous revolution in this nation As Well As in Many nations of the world in the past few generations. There have been businesses which grew too big and monopolistic in their practices. Thus the Sherman anti Trust act come about to prevent monopolies. There is a place for Small and big business in this country. Big business for the most part recognizes that it must operate within the intent of the Laws of the current Argus.
