Activities o f the Government in
the Banking Field Are
R eviewed and Position of
Banks A nalyzed
NEW YORK Detailed bank re
searches, covering all phases of prac­
tical operating and economic facts
and conditions related to banking are
being made bv the American Bankers
Association The resulting material ts
being placed at the disposal of I]
state banking associations, which in
many instances are extending the re­
searches of the national association in
their own states These activities are
said to be a part of the general pro
gram of banking development which
is being carried on by the organized
banking business.
Among the most extensive re­
searches being conducted by the
American Bankers Association is
that of its Committee on Banking
Studies, which is making a detailed
survey of Federal Government lend­
ing agencies and policies The basic
material, which is kept up to date by
continuing studies, show» where the
Government agencies get the money
they lend, what liability the Govern­
ment assumes, what subsidy it ex­
tends, what return it gets, for what
and to whom the money goes and on
what terms it is loaned
The Government In Bankln;
"It is not the intention of the com­
mittee to express its viewpoint about
any agency," says the foreword to this
material “ Its intention is only tr de­
termine the facts. These facts prop­
erly assembled and presented should
help banks to meet Government com
petition if and where it exists The
committee believes the Government
entered the lending field at a critical
period in order to aid banks and
financial institutions If the time has
come for the Government to with­
draw, it is the duty of bankers to
demonstrate their readiness to take
care of all sound credit needs "
It adds that the banks must be
equipped with full factual materia)
as to the Government’s emergency
lending activities and practices, and
that fuii cooperation ha.« been given
the committee by Government agen­
cies in obtaining facts Binders af the
material gathered have been placed
by the committee in the hands of
state associations.
Investigation of Postal Savings
The Committee on Banking Studies
has also made a survey of the Postal
Savings System throughout the
United States to ascertain to what ex­
tent it is competing with chartered
banks. Questionnaires were sent to
banks in all places where Postal Sav­
ings depositories are operated and
their answers will be analyzed as a
basis for the committee’s findings.
The Bank Management Commis­
sion of the American Bankers Asso­
ciation has made a nation-wide sur­
vey covering the movement among
banks to increase their earning abili­
ties “ through fair and legitimate rates
for services they render their deposi­
tors." It has developed a plan of ac­
count analysis as a basis of fair
"All business in order to justify its
existence is founded on the economic
principle that a reasonable return
should be expected from services
rendered.” the commission says
Personal Income Loans
The Bank Management Commis­
sion has also formulated methods for
installing and operating persona) in­
come loan departments in banks
"This plan contemplates making
loans primarily to individuals and
small business concerns, based upon
the character and assur-jo incomes of
the borrowers, as distinguished from
the usual basis for ’commercial
loans,' ” the commission says.
It points out that a large part of
the population is not now making use
of available bank credit and that “to
these people the personal loan de­
partment extends a valuable service
which at the same time is profitable
to the bank " It adds that it is “the
duty of the banks to educate the pub­
lic to come to the bank for all finan­
cial services Small borrowers should
be informed that the .«.cal bank i?
