Bankers Express Optimism at
Meeting in New York and
Lay Plans for Assisting the
New York, Oct. 3.- -A new era of
financial prosperity tor tht* United
States was forecast, plans for as
siting farmers were laid, and an op
timistic view of Conditions in Eur
ope was expressed nt the opening
Monday of the 4»lti annual conven
tion of the American Hankers Asso
Eugene Meyer, jr., managing di
dector war corporation and probable
candidate for governorship of the fed
eral reserve hoard, delivered one of
the principal addresses, saying:
"The acute phases of the agricul
tural crisis of 1920-21 now are passed.
The aftermath in the form of a bur
den on the farmers, and stockmen
still remains, and gome thousands of
banking institutions still are in an
extended condition. But probably' at
no time in our history has there been
so rapid and extensive Improvement
in our economic condition as during
the past 18 months.”
Oppose “Chain”* Banking.”
Mr. Meyer pointed out that the cri
sis emphasized one outstanding fact
•—-the need for more gradual market
ing of agricultural products with
longer terms financing to correspond
with this slower process.
Europe's financial troubles, it was
expressed by the majority of the
9,000 delegates present, will he met
Various phases of the European
situation were relegated into the
background by the drive of smaller
banks to prevent again . allowing
branch banking. The contention on
one side was that such a system of
national "chain” banking would result
in the money being held by Wall
street and allied controllers.
Big Forgery Exhibit.
The other side, as voiced by per
sons close to the big hanking inter
ests, represented that branch bank
ing would prove financially and eco
tiomically advantageous to the nation.
One of the features of the conven
tion is the exhibit dealing with for
geries and ' counterfeit money at
which it was stated that $50,000,000 in
losses was paid out in check forgeries
last year by surety companies. Checks
raised, from a few dollars to many
thousands, signatures cleverly copied
and other ingenious practices of for
gery are presented in a striking man
ner together with the announcement
that a forged check is passed every
three and a half minutes of the bank
Here is what some of the delegates
bad to say:
Thomas B. McAdams, Richmond,
Va.,—“Fundamentally, America is in
a sound financial position and can
look forwa.^ to increasing prosperity,
provided carelessness and selfishness
are not allowed to undermine the
stability of our citizenship.”
j. A. House, Cleveland—-“I feel
much aesured as to business pros
pects during the coming year. 1 have
come to the conclusion that the Eur
opean problem is the world’s problem
and that the United States can no
longer withhold its influence without
suffering more by it's exclusion than
by its participation.”

territory covers a very large portion
of the cotton producing area of Texas
and while the crops are in general
spotted, the prevailing prices have

Mt. Clemens. Mich., Oct. 3.—Un
aware that the wheels of the landing
gear of his airplane had dropped off,
Capt. Bert E. Skeei made a landing
Monday and was nearly crushed to
d< ath In the wreckage.
For half an hour Captain Skeei
flew over Selfridge field, unable to in
terpret the desperate signal attempts
of the spectators below, seeking to
warn him of his plight. Extra landing
wheels were hauled out of a hangar
and dangled in the air from another
plane in an effort to transmit the
message that almost certain death
awaited his usual landing.
As he swooped down for the final
landing ambulances and fire trucks
raced across the field to where his
plane hit the earth in a great cloud
of dust. Captain Skeei, suffering
from severe injuries about the head,
was lifted from the wreckage. Phy
sicians held out hope for his recovery.
Captian Skeei, whose heme is in

LABOR BODY ASKS U.S.
TO RECOGNIZE MEXICO
Federation Says Delayed Ac
tion Encourages Obre
Washington, Oct. 3.—The executive
committee of the Pan-American fed
eration of labor Monday called upon
the United States government to rec
ognize Mexico on the ground that
delayed action encourages the en
emies of President Obregon to stir up
trouble at the border, such as the
Juarez garrison mutiny last Satur
day. The statement said in part:
“There is no doubt that these so
called revolutionary leaders (Car
rasco and Murguia) are not deriving
the least encouragement from t lie
Mexican people In their rebellious ac
tivities. Their source of encourage
ment is the fact that tlie United
States government still is unaccount
ably withholding it’s official recog
nition of the Mexican government.
"The Mexican people know that the
Obregon government is the one ray
of hope that has emanated from the
darkness of tht* revolutionary period
strong enough to assert itself over
the reactionary forces which have
been constantly plotting for a restor
ation of the old order of tilings.
"San Antonio and El Paso, Texas,
seem to he the rendezvous for these
malcontents who value more their
own petty, unwholesome ambitions
than tin' welfare of their country and
their people. Others are nursing their
impotency and mediocrity in Havana,
while the vitrolie pens of still others
are an insult to the hospitality of
Pan Francisco. ~
"in issuing tiie above statement the
executive committee of the Pan
American Federation of I,abor is
guided by the desire to see Mexico
occupy the place to which she is
rightfully entitled among the family
of American nations."

information that an attempt was

YOU MAY NOT BELIEVE THIS

being either a pessimist or reformer,
recently wrote ns follows: "The other

Danville, Ky.. passed through our town

of science is furnished by the up
setting of all the results of the geo
detic survey of Algeria bused upon
tiie station of Volrol, which had been
chosen as the point of origin of co
ordinates. It has been found that,
owing to some subterranean pecu
liarity affecting the direction of tin*
plumb-line, there is u strong devia
tion from the vertical at Volrol, and
as a result a new starting point for
the triangulation must be chosen and
new calculations made. The discov
ery was inudi by comparing the as

servatory about three miles from
Volrol with its geodetic latitude as
calculated from the Volrol data.
