California has suffered serious
damage from frost in practically
all varieties of fruit and that the
tonnage of canning fruits in that
state will be the lightest in years.
Peaches, which have been the
most serious problem of recent
years, seem to be the most seri

Problems of the lumbering in
dustry, of Interest to bankers in
their handling of financial mat
ters affecting lumbering, were
outlined by Sinclair A. Wilson of
Linnton in the initial afternoon
address. The lumber market has
been poor for several years, due
to the encroachment, not altogeth
er Justified, of substitute building
materials, said Mr. Wilson.
Poor Business Methods
Blamed For Situation
Poor advertising, propaganda of
the ultra-conservationists, failure
to develop refinement of the in
dustry at the opportune time, and
price cutting were blamed for the
Development of new pulp

the merits of group banking as

Mr. Graham said ability to com

were all on the side of the group
banks, enabling them to perform
more effective service to the pub
lic. In reply, Mr. Alton said fluidity
of capital was already provided by
the federal reserve law, and that
a unit bank, which must of neces
sity succeed or fail along with the
community in which it is situated,
is in better position to serve that
community. Loans, he declared,
