On Nov. 16th, 1914, the Reserve Banks
in twelve of the principal cities of the U. S.
opened for business. This law means there
will never be any more panics in the United
States. Every Mernbor Bank can at any time
convort its notos into exchange or actual cur
rency. The power of tho Federal Reserve
Banks to issue currency is almost unlimited;
this currency is now printed and may be ob
tained at any time by Member Banks.
Tho First National Bank of Bend is mem
ber of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Fran
