State Superintendent Willi

State Superintendent of Banks
Will H. Bennett, yfesterday sub
mitted to the state Ranking board
bis resignation, whih will be ef
fective December 3i The mem
bers of the banking jboard are the
governor, the secretary of state
and the state treasurer.
Although the feeling between
bard members and Mr. Bennett
has not been exactly smooth, it
is said. In a statement by the
board, that the resignation is en
tirely voluntary and came as a
complete surprise. 1
" Service Satisfactory.
"Mr. Bennett's services have
been uniformly satisfactory and
it Is with regret that we accept
his resignation," says the state
ment. Mr. Bennett has lought stock
in the Inland Empire bank at
Pendleton and will be associate!
with that institution as vice pres
ident. His salary, it Is said, will
be approximately $1000 more
than that which he is now re
ceiving... lUninettwas appointed Febru
ary 12. 191 K. and had he not re
signed would ?lill have a year
to serve.- Prior to accepting the
state superintendency he was
cashier for two years of the Citi
zens Bank of Portland, and be
fore that was Yice president of
the First State c Savings bank
of Klamath Fails. For four years
also he served as a state baaking
examiner nnder a previous ad
ministration. His first banking
experience was S in Heppner, and
while there he became well ac
quainted in Pendleton.
Kerortl Found Clean.
Mr. Jfennett has married since
becoming state superintendent.
He will be accompanied to Pen
dleton by .Mrs. Bennett and their
young son. j
About the only incident that
has happened to ruffle the feel-
"ng .between Bennett and f.he
board came when the latter de
manded a complete explanation
as to what precaution the de
partment took to forewarn pa
trons of the Bank of Jacksonville
against the failure of. that insti
tution. Such a report and ex-
nlanation were made in detail. 1
but has not, been made public.
However,, the grand jury which
investigated certain officials of
the Jacksonville bank inciden
tally reported that Bennett was
entirely in the clear and not (re
sponsible for any of the results
of the failure.

CITY COUNCIL TOTES
TO BE RESPONSIBLE
FOR AUTO CAMP PARK
Although the various appropriation on the city budst
for the year 1921 were cut down to the lowest possible fiirure
by the members of the city council at a special call rneeticj
held last night, it was considered to be to the best interest
of Salem for the council to assume the upkeep of the Free
Auto Camping grounds, rather than see it discontinued.
C. B. Clancey, head of the Cherriens, was again present to
urge the council to take this action, but the majority of the
aldermen appeared to have already made up their minds
that the parking grounds should be maintained, both as a
courtesy to the stranger within the gates of the city and also
for the reason that it Is a valuable asset to the city from
commercial point of view. Therefore the appropriation for
pubtic parks was raised from $3000 to $4500, for the year
