maintained the confidence of the peo
ple of our state.
"It has successfully met and foeen
tested foy the severest price declines
and business diturbanoes ever exper
ienced in this 6tate.
"It has enabled the depositors in
failed banks to receive in cash over
$3,000,000, which outherwiie would
have been lost to them.
"It has provided iby means of as
sessments on solvent banks with
$80,000,000 capital stock, for the

banks; it owns approximately $5,
000,000 in notes and mortgages tak
en over from failed banks and now
possesses the largest resources the
fund has ever retained in any per
iod in history.
"It has stabilized banking and
business conditions throughout our
state. It commands the confidence
and hearty support of the bankers

to promote higher standard of bank

of Nebraska, in convention . assem
"We favor and approve the pres
ent guarantee law of .this state and
that we are opposed to the enact
ment of any amendments or changes

chairman of the executive council of
the state bankers' association, intro
