Secretary of Treasury So
Promises at Commercial
EXPLAINS FARM LOAN LAW
A M'ADOO STORY.
Secretary McAdoo told this
story at a luncheon given in his
honor at the Commercial club: -
"A democratic friend of mine in
the south was asked by his repub
lican friend advice regarding the
wisdom of the latter locating in
Texas in the legal profession. The
democratic friend made this reply,
'As an honest lawyer you will find
no competition in Texas, and as a
republican, you will be protected
by the game laws.' "
"I anticipate by your eager and
confident taces that you expect a tarm
loan bank in Omaha. There is no po
sition that tempts me so to profanity
as to have to be neutral, but Omaha
is going to get a square deal," stated
Hon. William G. McAdoo, secretary
of the treasury of the United States,
speaking at noon to a large gathering
of men at the Commercial club.
The secretary gave a succint and
interesting explanation of the scope
and operation of the farm loan bank
"The farm loan system is a recip
rocating part of, the credit mechanism
of this country. It does not collide
nor conflict, but rather dovetails in,'
continued the speaker.
Politics Has No Part.
"There is nothing political in these
things," he added. "I have contempt
for men who think only of legislation
for the benefit of some political party.
We should discuss economic prob
lems as intelligent men, above par
tisanship, discarding political bias
and prejudice.V There is a splendid
element of American citizenship that
stands between the political parties
and says to the party in power, 'Serve
all of the people or you may never
have another chance.' We need more
of truth and less of misrepresentation.
It is this independent element of our
citizenship that is going-to save our
country from besetting ills.
"The prosperity of the country to
day is due largely to a responsive
credit system, which enables business
men to go forward with wholesome
confidence. We have in the past
' Failed to adequately organize the farm
credit of the country."
Benefits the Farmers.
The speaker referred to the people
of the west as vigorous, with a vision,
and a citizenship which has been an
inspiration to the people of the east.
He explained that the farm loan
banks will be for the benefit of the
moderate and bona fide farmers and
not for land speculators. He said that
the federal reserve act has enlarged
the credit resources of the country.
Introducing Secretary McAdoo,
Gurdon W. Wattles said:
"There is a feeling of cordiality and
good will on the part of the bankers
of Omaha toward the farm loan
banks. Omaha is the natural base for
a farm loan bank. Prosperity has
come to us in such a degree that we
are no longer dependent on outsiders,
but-we realize that great benefits will
accrue through the establishment of
a farm loan bank here. It will relieve
many from the results of misdirected
information and will encourage sav
ing in this community."
Secretary McAdoo was accorded a
generous reception from the gather
ing of representative men of Omaha.

Big Rush to Rescue
Justice Britt's Exiled Car
Justice of the Peace C W. Britt is
having his troubles.
Every mail brings a variety of pad
lock and skeleton keys from friends
who sympathize with the justice in
"I've got more keys than Omaha's
largest hardware store. Each key
carries a different notation and advice
from the unknown donor," said the
down-hearted justice. "It's all been
brought about through my unfortu

on my garage. The two keys origin
ally provided have been lost in the
shuffle. Because of losing , the keys
my flivver has been tied up behind
the door of the garage. Then, again,
on another occasion I entrusted the
key to my wife after the door was
locked and the machine placed in the
garage. She, too, lost the key and it
was necessary for me to rip the
hasp and the padlock from the door
in order to get the machine out.
