. banks in large numbers are taking
advantage of the educational opportu
i nity given by the great non-commercial
' college ot the banking business, the
American Institute of Banking. They
see on every hand evidences ot the
' value of the training it gives. Of the
- 10.000 graduates of this Institute, 70
now occupy official positions In Amer-
; lean banks. The other 30 are still
' too young to have attained such
heights. Here is an example and an
encouragement to the people ot all
lines of business.
t The American Institute ot Banking
has a membership of 64,320. Of these
' 33,851 are class enrolments, compris-
- lng youngeT bank people, both men
and women, who are learning the sci
entific technique of their chosen busi

' Banking Educates Ha People
It has been estimated that there are"
. probably 175,000 bank officers and em
ployees In the United States at the
present time. These figures would
mean that about one banker In every
-six is either enrolled in Institute
, classes In banking or Is actively sup
porting soma educational function of
the organization. No statement could
possibly give more emphasis to the
importance placed on education by the
nklng interests of America than
ea facts.
j American IastitsU pt Banking
is the educational section of the Amer
ican Bankers Association. : It was
formed twenty-eight years ago by bank
employees and officers and has been
carried on ever since as a voluntary
organization. Many students who have
graduated continue their membership
in order to give active support to some
type of educational work other than
the actual class program.
The greater part ot the educational
work is carried on in 200 cities and
towns in the United States. Here the
local chapter of the American Insti
tute of Banking has Its regularly or
ganized courses of study under super
vision of the national body with local
Instructors and directors to fulfil the
standard requirements regarding text
material, classwork and examinations.
Instructors are recruited from the
staffs of leading universities, . from
members of the legal profession and
from among accountants and bank
men who have made a record in some
field ot activity In banking that marks
them as experts.' 'AH instructors must
be approved by the national organiza
tion. They are compensated by the lo
cal units. The students pay tuition,
in which they are frequently aided by
their employing banks, and this, to
gether with contributions made by the
banks for general classroom overhead,
finances the educational program.
Education a Pathway to Advancement
Leading banks In various parts of
the country are insisting that their
employees lake work in the Insti
tute. This Is frequently a part of
their contract of employment at the
time they enter the bank. ' It is also
now quite generally understood in the
field of American banking that study
in the American Institute of Bank
ing is considered one of the baste
factors in the promotion ot the in
dividual to a place of importance in
a bank.
The Standard Certificate of the
American Institute of Banking is an
nually gaining a greater and wider
recognition among practical bankers
throughout the United States. These
certificates are coming to have the
same importance in the banking world
that certificates of education have In
the field of the general professions.
This is a practical example and one
thoroughly well demonstrated by sea
soned experience of the new spirit ot
American business. ' ' ; ' ' ;

B. D. Taylor,. Athena
City Marshal, Suddenly
Dies of Heart Failure
Bert Taylor, for several years city
marshal and water superintendent of
Athena, expired suddenly at his home
on Fourth street, at 3:30 Wednesday
morning, when stricken with heart
failure. , ' -;
For some time Mr. Taylor had been
afflicted with asthma, and a few
minutes before his death, he arose
from his bed and smoked a cubeb
cigarette for relief. After returning
to bed he coughed several times. Fin
ally, Mrs. Taylor heard him give one
cough which had a peculiar sound.
She inquired of her husband what
was wrong, and receiving no reply
turned on the light and immediately
saw that Mr. Taylor had gone.
Mr, Taylor had been a resident of
Atrena for 14 years and was highly.
respected iri the community. He was
born in the state of Iowa, October
19, 1872, and when a boy came with
his parents to California, and later
to Wasco, Oregon. He was united in
marriage to Miss Nettie Smith of
Wasco. He is survived by his widow
and two sons, Dalberth, who conducts
the Taylor dairy; Arthur.of the Athe-
na tress; two Bisters, ivira. ijouie
Lambert of Santa Anna, California,
and Mrs. Minn le Rayborn,' of Hood
River. '. . , . . i "
Funeral services will be held at
the Christian church in Athena, this
afternoon at 1:30 o'clock and inter
ment will take place at Pendleton.
."Why milk twelve poor cows when

American Bankers Association Agri
cultural Commission. It declares that
analysis of more than 100,000 indi

ciations Indicate that on the average:
Cows that produced 100 lbs. butterfat
year returned f 14 each over feed
Cows that produced 200 lbs. butterfat

Cows that produced 300 bs. butterfat

a year returned $138 each over feel
cost; . . -
Cows that produced 600 lbs. butterfat
a year returned $178 each over feed
cost; ' ; ""'
In other words, one 500-pound pro
ducer will return $10 more over feed
cost than twelve 100 lb. producers.
This does not take Into account,
either, the added labor of milking and
caring for the' larger herd, or the
much greater expense of providing
stable room for a dozen Instead of a
single animal The figures are based
on farm prices from all parts of the
country - r-.
More Hunters Get Game .
Three more Athena hunting crews
have returned home at the close of
the shooting season, bringing in deer.
W. C Campbell, George Brace and
Will Campbell brought home a buck,
as did Art Douglas, O. E. Venable and
Tom Gilkey. Both parties hunted in
Grant county. Fred Radtke of Ath
ena and Ernest Ross of Weston re
turned Monday evening from the Blue
Mountains, southeast of Athena,
bringing home a fine big buek. Henry
Dell and Armond DeMerritt, and
another party comprised of Glenn and
Dean Dudley, Mr. Eickhoff and
Barney Foster hunted in Grant coun
ty last week without success.
Expects Average Yield
' Weston Leader: W. A. Eves thinks
he will begin potato digging in about
a week at his place on Weston moun
tain. Last week he tried out the
spuds and found them, in his opinion,
too green to handle. Mr. aves minus
that Weston mountain will raise a
Drettv fair cron. despite the poor
growing conditions this season. His
own fields look well, and he expects
an average yield from his B5 acres.
He feels auite encourazed over the
market outlook and considers that,
looking at it from all angles, the
mountain country is in a pretty
fortunate position this year.

County Will Vote On the
Building: of Court House
Pendleton. The people of Umatil

a three year period. There will be no
tax increase however, as tjfelast of

house. After the three year period
has expired there will be opportunity

levy. By using current revenues for
building purposesthe new court house
will be built without issuing any
bonds and there will be no interest to
Petitions asking the county court
to take action were circulated by vol
unteer workers during the past two
weeks and the response indicates a
strong public sentiment for i new

Resolutions Adopted By
Educators On State
School Standardization
Salem. Carrying out the idea of
standardization, which was the key
note of the convention of the Oregon
high school . principals' association,
the educators, at their closing ses
sion Saturday, adopted a report which
would allow small high schools to
exist only if they can meet certain
standards of efficiency.: This report
was presented by F. L. Stetson of
the University of Oregon as chair
man of the committee on reorganiza
tion of small high schools. It was
approved over strong opposition.
As for the larger high schools it
was said that six standards would be
added to those already established by
the Northwest Association of secon
dary and higher schools.
A report presented by F. S. Knight
of Hood River in which a uniform
marking system was recommended
was adopted.
Among resolutions adopted was one
asking for investigation of over-lapping
subject matter in the several
units of the Oregon school system,
including the first two years in the
universities and colleges. Another
resolution provided for a committee to
study the articulation of the various
units in the schol system through
which students pass progressively
frotr. the elementary grades through
the institutions of higher learning.
Game Commission Reports
On China Pheasant Crop
Chinese pheasant hunting, according
to reports of the State Game Com
mission has not been as good in Ore
gon this season as it has been in the
past. This is said to be due, In no
small measure, to the fact that the
late, cold and rainy spring cut down
the first hatch of young pheasants.
The second and third hatches, which
came In dry warm weather proved up
to normal. .
On the other hand quail hunting
in those counties that have an open
season, has been extremely good.
Strange as it may seem, in open
counties there appear to be more
birds .than, there are in those-districts
that are closed. This is due, it is con
tended, to the breaking up of flocks
and the consequent cutting down of
inbreeding, which results in more non
fertile eggs.
Tuesday evening, C. A. Sias, G. R.
Gerking and Laurence Pinkerton at
tended a meeting of church workers
in the Christian church at Pendleton,
which was addressed by Rev. Elijah
Stiners-of Eugene, in the interests

The Farm Board Announces
$100,000,000 Available
For Cotton.
Washington. The federal farm
board announced it would lend to cot
ton cooperatives sums sufficient to
bring the total amount borrowed from
all sources by such associations to 16
centsS per pound graded and classed
cotton, and disclosed simultaneously
that it is preparing to take similar
action on wheat under a plan to be
revealed later. ' - 1 -
The statement, which ' came as a
surprise and was received with grati
fication by cotton strte senators on
capitol hill, was prefaced with the de
claration that the board "believes the
present prevailing prices for cotton
are toe low."
Nearly $100,000,000 is available
from the board's revolving fund for
the cotton financing and the board
said it would ask congress for more
if it becomes necessary.
The plan under which the board ex
pects to lend money to wheat cooper
atives probably will not be announced
until after formation of the national
grain corperation, which is expected
to be completed late this wetk; at a
meeting in Chicago. Several mem
bers of the board wilt attend the
meeting. The general manager of the
corporation will have to meet the ap
proval of the board, Chairman Legge
has said, in view of .the fact the
board intends to lend the organization
a large sum of money.
