been used a a foundationTor this
revision We have endeavored to
make provision for all the loop
holes and weak places in our pres
ent laws by preparing such new
sections as may be necessary and
also. by, selecting appropriate laws
from the various states, Including
principally the states of New York
In preparing this new banking
rode, the committee has endeav
ored o reach' A every condition
which has', resulted through the
experiences of the past two years
and for which 'no appropriate pro
vision now appears in our present
Jaws. This new code will require
close supervision and direction on
behalf of Officers and directors
It fixes responsibility upon those
wbo are charged with the man
agemelil arid direction of our
. banking institutions. It also pro
vides greater restrictions,"5 but a
broader field for the investment
of funds. ". It also Imposes greater
restrlctidns upon loans and the
manner in which all assets shall
be held and preserved for the pro
tection of depositors. : . : i
