SERVICE
An old word with a new meaning.
Modern, up-to-date bank service
means more than simply the hand-
ling of funds; it is the acme of con-
fidence and assures satisfaction with
every transaction.
Service in its fullest meaning, is a
fixed part of our bank covenant.

be a Good Chooser
All success in life, all business
success depends upon wise
choosing.
Failure is the result of choosing
unwisely,
Life is one continuous series of
choosings - decisions.
When we start going to school
we have to choose whether we
shall apply ourselves diligently
to our studies or dodge them.
When we start work we have
to choose whether we shall apply
our whole selves to it, or whether
we shall treat it as secondary to
having a "good time.”
In our youth we have to choose
between giving rein to our appa-
tites or keeping them under con-
trol.
Every human being is early
confronted with the problem of
choosing what line, or mode, of
life to adopt.— Forbes Magazine.

__DISABLED VETERANS
Among the most enthusiastic and
energeilo members of the American
(led Ci.iss are those citizens ol' the
United States who live outside the
continental boundaries of their country
—sons and daughters of the Sturs and
Stripes residing at ilie far corners of
the earth.
These people compose the Insular
and Foreign Division of the parent or
ganizutlon, generally known as the
"Fourteenth" Division, which has
Jurisdiction of all territory outside
the country proper; that Is, Alaska
I’orio IUoo, Hawaii, Virgin Islands, the
Philippines, Guam, und even tlie Is
land of Yap, which came under our
Hag us a result of the world war. For
the year 11*20 this division reported
30,808 paid up members.
The main object of this division is
to give our citizens everywhere the op-
portunity to participate in the work
of the organization which stands for
the best national Ideals. Americans
In far places intensely loyal and pa-
triotic, treasure their membership in
the lied Cross us the outward ex-
pression of their citizenship. It Is un.
oilier tie to the homeland and to
each other. There are chapters of
this division In Argentine, Bolivia,
Brazil, Canul zone, Chile, Chinn, Costa
Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic,
Ecuador, England, 'France, Guam,.
Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras,
Japan, Manchuria, Netherlands, Nica-
ragua, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines,
Porto Itico, Siberia, Spain, Sweden,
Switzerland, Syria, Turkey, Uruguay,
Venezuela and Virgin Islands.
During the war these scattered
members of the Ued Cross contrib-
uted millions in money, and millions
of dollars’ worth of necessary articles
for liie men in service, and sent many
doctors and nurses to France. At the
j sumo time they carried on an excel-
; lent Home Service in their respective
j communities for the families of those
i who had gone to war, and in some re-
gions gave large sums of money and
i immeasurable personal service to the
j relief of disAster und disease victims.
The division is now establishing
i service clubs in foreign ports for lho
j benefit of sailors in the American Mer-
I chant Marine, making plans to aid
Americans in trouble in foreign lands
Hmige the Red Cross continues Its
friendly service through the Home
Service Section In his own community.
The Bed Cross maintains a convule
cent house at all of the hospitals,
where patients can amuse themselves
lifter they are well enough to he up
ami around. Parties and picture shows
in the wards Hie also furnished, with
occasional excursions when convales-
cence comes.
Great service has been remitted by
the Ued Cross In mental cases In Iden-
tifying those who have appeared In
slate hospitals for the Insane, and help-
ing them secure compensation due from
the Bureau of War l'isk Insurance.
In the Federal Hoard's various dis-
trict olllees (lie Ued Cross worker, act-
ing with the Home Service Section,
makes necessary loans io the men, ar-
ranges suitable living conditions, helps
collect evidence and supply facts to the
Hoard, assists In “appealing eases" and
settles various personal dlfiii itllles for
the men. The workers also follow up
and uid all men who discontinue traiu- !
ing.
The Ued Cross agents find men "lost" j
to the Board, help clear up delayed !
cases and aid the college counselors In j
their friendly work with the men. |
Many Ued Cross chaplers have set up !
recreation facilities, and In some In
stances living clubs, so these victims ,
of war may have nt I motive surround- !
lugs and the fun which must go with
effective school work,
To the American Ued (Voss Institute !
for the Blind near Baltimore, Mil, ,
more than half of all the Americans I
blinded In the World War have come
for training. The Institute, through I
the Ued Cross, long ago conducted an !
exhaustive Industrial survey to den»r
mine tile vocations for which blind
men could bo fitted. As a result It Is
putting forth well trained men equip j
ped to meet the social, civic and ecu- |
noinlc requirements of their respective
ccmm unities.
That Could be True
Board of trade propagandists
declare that the Krain exchange
is a commercial necessity in sta-
hilizitiK the markets. That could
ho true. Theoretically that is
why grain exchanges exist, Ac-
tually. however, it is nor true.
Gram exchanges demoralize the
market because actually they ex-
ist as gambling devices. Thev
are public enemies, —Capper's
Farmer.
No Sign of a Panic
Despite a fall in prices the
most extensive, according to
authorities, since 1873, there has
Been no sign of a panic. In the
discussion of the fail in prices
credit is given the banking sys-
tem for curtailment of loans to
speculators in commodities, forc-
ing them to unload, but there
seems to be an agreement that
this action of the banks could
ha^e been taken earlier to great
advantage, - Ex.
