bankt of all description, throughout
the country subject to all the varia-

bring about greater consistency and
uniformity among the statute, of ail

Is conducting a vigorous nation-wide
campaign urging that active steps be
taken to teenre greater co-ordination
In banking legislation, more equitable

to bring about more uniformly desir

States In respect to the public super

It Is alio a part of tble policy that

P''viltng him with adequate forcet of

j The Association 8tiu Bank Dlvl
i almi hat recently concluded a nation
j wide -.urvcy of ttate banking Ivgltla
! timi and conilltloni and Id goners! hat
j discovered a definite trend along the

eomnilmliinert or ihe hanking hoards

or durability of added banking facllt

I Bertinn many itntei are creating

There hat i:o been observed a
tendency to Increase the compensa

I lengthen their term, of office and to
i Itive them power to appoint necessary
I Oinrtet and examiner, to at to build

taut uugiiientailop of the power of
hank commissioners In tome ttatet It
found In lawt glTlng them complete
charire of Insolvent banka and their
liquidation as distinguished from more
costly liquidation through the courts.
In the Public Interest

In tome ttatet measures have been
