drawal, the fourth and fifth Install
ments of its payments under the reor
ganization plan. These installments
fall due n December 24 and February

tion of the Institution caused the dl-
'-.jctors to decide to anticipate the pay
ment. The Knickerbocker Trust

portant financial Institutions to close
its doors during the panic last fall.
When the bank-was reopened, deposi
tors were given time certificates for
70 per cent of their deposits. Thirty

be paid,' and It Is believed that the re
maining 40 per cent will be consider
ably anticipated. Depositors will lose
nothing through the temporary closing
