A department system that greatly
simplifies and facilitates the hand
ling of the dally business has been
installed by the First State & Sav
ings bank, In the division of the en
tiro system into units, representing
each of the major branches of the
business. Compartments have been
set aside for each branch and each
unit has an individual accounting
system. Heretofore an error in the
dally balance has often involved the
burning of much midnight oil In
chasing, it 'through all the ramifica
tions of the "coieWlrbuslneBs before
finally finding and eliminating It.
Under the "new system the accounts
of each unit are balanced at the end
of tho day. If there is a discrepancy
1. appears in the department respon
sible for it and nine-tenths of tha
work and worry In seeking the
cause is prevented.
A new ventilating system Is an
other rece'nt Improvement that finds
much favor with the bank staff. In
Its operation the air -enters through
small apertures on the floor level at
the front of the building and passes
upward and over the steam radiat
ors, warming the air current. A fan
at the rear of the building forces the
stale air out and provides space for
a constant Inflow of fresh air. The
device keeps up a steady circulation
