of the banks' reeoureeo would be re
duced to about the sum Of $1,800,000.
"There had been no open run on tha
bank, and nothing unusual noted by ue
excepting the withdrawal of two Urge
eavlnga deposits of 110.000 each" said
President Moore. "Up to the last day
we did not suffer any special strain on
