Diamond Tires makes the handsomest

But we're here to tell you that you can't

their husky strength andjlong mileage.
You read about it on yoi2r speedometer

On the remainder of the front the

enthusiastic over the prospect. . Sec

Trend of Business Is Into Gov
ernment Hands; Two Big
LONDON, Feb. 8. (Correspon
dence of The Associated Press): One
of the great revolutions In British
business, which now looms upon the
horizon. Is the prospect that bank
ing may be taken out of Jprlvate
hands and become a government de
partment. This is not a result of the
war but of the amalgamation of
banks which has been proceeding for
several years until now most of the
banking of the United Kingdom and
Ireland is under the control' of some
half a dozen big, institutions. Thus
there appears the spectre of a bank
ing trust. The New Statesman re
cently predicted that the end would
be two great groups of associated
! banks. ;
The past four years have seen sev
eral gigantic amalgamations and
many believe this process bids fair
to continue. Three great combina
tions have been formed in two
Two Big Banks Merge
The last combination, formed this
week, was of the London County and
Westminster Bank with Parr's Bank,
two of the oldest and mostjnfluen
tial corporations in Britain. This
general tendency toward centraliza
tion was attacked in Parliament and
the Chancellor of the Exchequer, -Andrew
Bonar Law, promised the ap
pointment of a committee to report
whether the public interest calls for
the intervention of the state. Ttte
committee is to consist of "bankers,
merchants and manufacturers." ana
it is a sign of the times that imme

diate criticism was forthcoming that
sented on the body. There has been
much talk in the papers o fa "money
trust," and a "corner in money."
The comparatively small trade of
the United Kingdom was served a
century ago by many hundreds of
separate and competing small banks.
Gradually the number has decreased
by absorptions and amalgamations
until five years ago; there were sixty.
During the past decade the tendency
has been not so much the absorption
of small banks by the great corpora
tions as the Joining of forces by these
leviathans. Most of the banking needs
of the general community are served
by about ten thousand branches of a
score of highly centralized com
panies. '.-'. -.'.. .
.'V 'One Bank In Prowpect.
Over a large part of the 'country
ere will soon be available! for the
average citizen only one bank,; which
is a branch of one of the giant Insti
tutions whose businesses run into the
thousands, of millions.
The chief drawback to this policy
which the small business man and
farmer fears1 Is that his petty wants
may not be considered worth the con
sideration of these banking giants.
who will tend more and more to in
vest capital in large sums In great
enterprises.; This has been much
written of as an evil tendency of re
eent British banking. Government
feontrol, with banks located as post
offices are, on the basis of the needs
of the community. would be a so
lution of-the problem. Whether it
will come remains to be seen. The
question is likely to pJay a part in
after the-war domestic politics.
Some leading financiers consider
centralization of banking necessary
for England to hold her position as
the banker for the world's interna
tional dealings. The Saturday Re
view says: "The war has proved a
unique opportunity for New York to
challenge London's financial suprem
acy, and so. far New York has not
shown capacity to take full advan
tage of it; but New York and Wash
ington toegther have, made progress."
The general opinion of British bank
ers regarding the new American Fed

success, and that it was instituted at
