When we clo e our doors each afternoon at 6 o'clock it does not
mean that we are thru for the day. We have much to do, and often
work "late into the night. For a complete record of the bank's
business must be taken every day. We must be ready at any time
for al call from the bank examiner.
When an examiner comes, he makes a very thoro and careful
study. He counts our cash and figures how much money we have
on deposit in banks in larger cities. He checks up our lists of
loans and discount". He studiee the Dookkeepers work to detect
errors. Every detail of our business is carefully and intensely
examined. He wants to know why we have done this or that. What
securities we have made for our loans. Sometimes he insists that
we call notes, or forbids up to extend notes or additional money.'
And so you see, we are carefully controlled by the state. Many
times when we feel justified in making a loan, we know the examiner
would not approve. Some people might suppose this strict super
vision needless But we are glad of it. We want the examiner to
check up carefully in our work, and to help up maintain always an
institution which may provide complete safety for it; depositors'
funds and a conservative efficient management for those who de

NcJc: The student load (equivalent full-time enrollment) was computed
as follows: t!ie total credit hours ia extension and correspondeace were divid
ed by forty-five to arrive at the full-time equivalent for this division. This
is based on the assumption that a regular student remaims for three terms
and carries a normal load of 15 hours. The summer sessions are six woelis,
and therefore one summer school student' was counted as one-sixth of a full
time regular student. To tisose equivalents were added tho enrollment at the
Eugene regular eessions. ?,
