ROCKY FORD. Colo.-(-AP)-Farmers

.They have discovered a "mira
cle" crop in the Valencia onion.
Which Is said to grow better in
this region than anywhere in the
Within three years the Valen
cia 'onion has become the big mon
ey crop of the district, even sup
planting sugar beets, which held
the throne for years.
Four thousand acres were
planted to onions In the Arkansas
valley this year. In Otero county
2,100 acres In onions produced
11.250.000 as compared with $1,

The Valencia Is a sweet Span

only two or thre,e localities in the
United States. Arkansas valley
conditions are said to be exactly

hare become the fixed stars of a
financial world where the order of
the day is unceasing changes. - -
Executives of the country's
greatest banks-may change with
each new merger. The big names
In the background do not change.
Certain family names, synony
mous with , money but not neces
sarily the nation's wealthiest, go
on forever. Like coats of arms,
they furnish convenient labels for
various dominant groups.
More than 100 bank mergers
were reported in the United States
during the first quarter of this
year. Big industrial units require
wide and adequate banking facili-
tes. For that reason bankers are
predicting that the consolidation
of banks will continue as long as
industries continue to grow in size
The three largest banks in the
country at this time are the Na
tional City, the Guaranty Trust
and the Chase National, all of
New York. Each is the result of
a merger this year. Their combin
ed resources are approximately
5,500.000.000. a twelfth of all the
banking resources in the United
In Chic so the Continental-Illinois
Bank and Trust company, a
merger of the Continental Nation
al and Illinois Merchants Trust is
fourth in size with resources of
approximately a billion. -
Other super-banks included in
the big 10 are the Equitable Trust.
First National, Bankers Trust,
Central Hanover, Irving Trust,
Corn Exchange and Bank of Amer
ica. Some of the executives of these
banks, such as Charles E. Mitchell,
Gordon S. Rentschler, James S.
Alexander, William C. Potter,
Charles S. McCain and Albert H.
Wiggin wield enormous power
separately and collectively.
They are ercognized as the dom
inant personalities In banking, yet
for various reasons Wall street
often finds It simpler to use the
designation Morgan banks. Rocke
feller banks, Giannini banks or
independents. That means something.
