Why Banks Must Lower
Interest on Sayings Accounts
(Woodburn Independent. )
Tin Portland bankers will lower the
rate of intercut on time savings from
four to throe per cent. This action will
in all probability be followed by one of
a similar nature by the banks through
out the state. The banks cJiinot be
censured lor taking such a step. They
have been paying four per cent interest
on money mat to a great extent has
been lying in the vaults. Un account
of conditions they cannot enter too
largely into placing this in borrowers'
iminls. At jiiv inmeiit tiiere may como
a moment of speculation, especially in
lnnd, when depositors will withdraw
funds without notice, not being in the
saving department and this will deplete
for the time beiujj the volume of money'
some of which may go east. Then the
bankers never know from day to day
how much money will be called upon to
furnish New York or to provide on oil
brought about by tiie Kuropeau war. The
close of this war may also mean the
sending of considerable money by de
positors to Kurope, many of whom are
waiting to speculate or invest in Europ
ean countries during the days of recon
struction following the great and de
vastating conflict. These and many
more are the reasons why bankers haie
to he conservative, cannot loan as they
and prospective borrowers wish, nuditicallv the same as in 191.).
why they hive so much money lying
idle, conseauentlv would not be uursu-
ing further a safe business course by
more than three per cent in -
savings deposits. There is:
good collateral being ottered for mon
ey at six, seven, eight and even ten per
cent interest, but there is a large num
ber of people who prefer to leave their
money in the bjnks at the low rate of
interest than loaning on realty or chat
tels. in the near future. Manager Evans
states that he has a good line of pre
liminary bouts under way anil that sev.

Yanking the Yanks
-Into Shap at Macon
: (By. United Press.)
ifae'on, Go., March 11 Bill Donovan,
with ntore'than V",00,000 worth of base
ball beef and bone treading the tropical
lea today, was. just about ready to lead
his Yanks against the best the Ameri
can league affords and put up a hair
raising fight for. the pennant. Spring
training under the glowing rays of a
benevolent sun has jerked the Yankee
players into real high frade trim for
the season 'a fray. The pitchers are go
ing along in swinging strides and the
outfield is rated one of the best bal
anced outer vistas in the whole Amer
ican league landscape.
Money did most of it. Colonel Rup
pert and Captain' Huston, the spend
thrift owners of the club, have dis
bursed at least the fifth part of a mil
lion shells for diamond serfs and results
to date have been sufficient to satisfy
them that their judgment was right.
Toward the latter part of 1915 the Yan
kee owners combed the minors for tal
ent and bought , about $100,000 worth
of playing material. Not satisfied,
they gave their fellow monarchs heart
flutters in the last few months by con
tributing $100,000 more for Eee Ma
gee, Frank Baker, Gedeoa and Schafer,
stars of the one-time Federal league.
The cost of purchase was by no means
the end of the Yankees' responsibility, I
either, lhe stars of the team have con
tracts for sums largo enough to stagger
'most anyone but Charlie Chaplin and
Charlie won't stngger the slightest
staglet for less than $10,000 a week
or thereabout. : i
"Rupert and Huston are determined
to give the fans one of the best clubs
that ever represented New York in the
American league," is Donovan 'b mod-
eat comment n the Yankees' aspira
tions. "Price has not cut any figure
with the owners. In a single year they
have spent, probably, more money for
players than has been spent in the rest
or the club s history.
Third base of course is Frank Baker's
logical position, Donovan says, and
Fritz Maisel is enthusiastic about his
tentative berth in the far agricultural
regions. Mngcc, though a second-baser
by trade, will carry the -burden of cen
ter station in the Yanks' outfield un
less Donovan finds It Impossible other
wise to plug the hole nt second. Mngec
likes tg tell people about his tempera
ment. In the outfield he will be able
to vent his rage or .'he hapless grass
hoppers without danger of anyone call
ing his hand. One of the most annoying
features of Magec's St. Louis service
was the persistence of certain fans in
calling him Hoernschemeyer, the name
he played under when he was selling
goat in Rhinelnnd, Ohio, meat dispen
sary. No one kicked on his taking the
nnme of Mngee and he has had free use
of it ever since.
Donovan expects Walter Pipp to
prove a corking first baseman and hia
catching staff, Alexander, Nunnmnker.
Walters, Schwert and Smith, is one of
the most promising departments in the
whole aggregation, Scnwert played over
on the Jersey side last year following
his leap from the University of Penn
sylvania. Nunnmnker is the Yankee
catching veteran and hits well for a
Donovan brought down a whole boat
load of pitchers and hopes to cull out at
least three good lefthanders to balance
the staff. Caldwell nnd Fisher likely
will prove the nucleus of the pitching
corps in the coming season nnd George
Mogridge threatens to become a regular
southpaw. Injuries kept Keating out of
the game most of the 1915 season and
his value this year still is a problem.
The Yanks will start north March 25,
besieged by demands for exhibition
games as a result of their acquirement
of the federal league stars. This is in
contrast to lust year's shate of affairs,
when the club owners called thirty fans
a good sized exhibition crowd. The
Yankees' opening game will be played
at the Tolo grounds on April 12.
Used to wonder just why father
Never had much time for play.
Used to wonder why he'd rather
Work each minute of the dav.
to wonder why he never
Loafed along the road an' shirked;
nn ' recall a time whenever
Father played whilo others worked.
Father didn't dress in fashion,
i-iort of hated clothing new,
Style with him was not a passion,
Ho had other things in view.
Boys are blind to much that's going
On about 'cm day by day.
And I had no way of knowing
What became of father's pay.
All I knew was when I needed
Shoes I got 'cm on the snot:
Everything for which I pleaded
Somehow, father always got.
Wondered, season after season,
Why he never took a rest,
And that I might be the reason
Then I never even guessed
Father set a store on knowledge
If he'd lived to have his way
He'd have sent me off to college
And the bills been glad to pay.
That I know was his ambition
.Vow an. then he used to say
He'd have done his earthly mission
On my graduation day.
Saw his cheeks were getting paler,
Didn 't understand just why.
Saw his body growing frailer,
Then at last I saw him die.
Rest, had conic! Ilis tasks were ended,
Calm was written on Ins brow;
Father's life was big nnd splendid,
And I understand it now.
