Berlin. Sept. 26. The world out

German beer it consumed before the
war, and for this condition American
prohibition is held to be largely re

the present year only 279,000 hec
toliters were exported, making an
estimated export of 55S.000 hecto
liters for 1922, as compared with 1,

"One of the most annoying things
with which the banking business has
to deal is the overdraft.
This is purely an American inven
tion. In fact, the universal use of
the check for paying obligations is
an American device. In European
countries only the select, well-to-do
business men have the privilege of
writing checks against their bank ac
counts. The banks there extend this
privilege with the same care and;
caution that the banks here loan
money to individuals.
Under the state law, when an over
draft occurs on the books of a bank
both the individual who wrote the
check and the bank which paid it,
become liable to punishment and yet
it is common occurrence and one of
the most annoying things to contend
When an individual buys a dollar's
worth of milk tickets, he wouldn't
think of going for another quart of
milk when his tickets were all gone,
but seems to consider it all right to
draw checks in the amount of fllO,
when but ?100 is on deposit. Not
only that, but when he receives a
notice from the bank that his ac
count is overdrawn, too often he gets
msddeithan a wet hen about it.
The depression period thru which
the banks have been gToping their
way during the past two years, has
disclosed that very much of the
grief has come about by reason of
permitting overdrafts. For this rea
son it is being insisted that this
practice be stopped and if it is possi
ble that the day is at hand when the
practice will go out of existance en
tirely. The ordinary American is a
pretty liberal sort of a fellow and
when he is made to see that the best
interests of business in general de
mand that the danger which lurks
in the overdraft be done away with,
he accepts the situation and gov
erns himself accordingly. Charles
