We think is a pretty good idea, and that year, 1932, is a particularly good in which to do a little hinking thr An irmnmme amount of the trouble which this eonntry experisneed in IN1, and to a lesser degree in 10, about besause a  nmnl folOt about thzfft tntho llama  from 1923 to 1.

Those people o were thrifty are the ones who  not eovnplaining of distrem in ] on principal and interest are not too heavy to be borne out of fixed in- comes. The people who are in the worst trouble today are the ones who went into debt in boom times on the notion that their incomes were ne- ver going to be less and probably would be more. Benjamin Franklin was right when he said, "A penny saved is a penny earned." BANKS AND BANKERS It looks to us as if a good deal of financial distress is due to the fact that a great many people who had no right to be in the banking business were permitted to call themselves bankers while the big money boom was on. It was brought out in the hearings at Washington on interna- tional banking that more than six hundred million dollars of bonds is- sued by different South American governments are in default. That means these govermments haven't paid the interest when due and that i there is an excellent chance that i people who bought these bonds will ! not get their money back. These loans were made on the in- vitation of New York concerns which call themselves investment bankers. I The bonds were sold at high prices b0 individuals and to small banks throughout the country. And these are far from being tLe only so-called investments on whivh the public and the small bankers have been stung Real bankers do not advise or en- courage their customers to invest in doubtful securities, or buy them with their depositors' money. PNie m prone to think that bankers are spec: ulators. That is very far from being the truth. The vast majority of bank. era have a very deep sense of re- sponsibility in the handling of other people's money. They regard tthem- selves as truztees, and they natural- ly feel that they have to be much more e.uotls about  ]o@s than if it was teir own money they were leading. To be sure, even the most eareful and honest bankers sometimes make ,  we have obeerved that the banks are in the soundest eendition today are the ones which did not buy ly speculative mmuritiee while boom was on, and who are not them- selves in the business of selling bonds.

It is certain to have a tremendous sale. In a furniture company, the "plan- ning department" displayed a whole new line of improved floor covering In a third, an opitcal concern, the ientists told us of work now going on which may give all of us better eyesighL Everywhere I found men's backs I turned upon present discouragements, and minds busy with better goods, better methods, better ideas, better li. I spoke to the head of one company about it. He said he had recently been holding a meeting of their English representatives. He told them casual- ly that the company had hired an engineer and assigned him the task of making a world survey of their souses bf raw materials for the next twenty-five years. One of the Englishment exclaimed: "Confound you Yankees! What Erff- llsh company would ever think of hiring a man to look ahead twenty- five years ?" Coming to the end of all these meetings, I concluded that it is u waste of time to worry about the fUo ture of American business. We have an asset more fundamen- tal than gold supply, or raw mater- ials, or electric power, or climate. That asset or a restless dissatisfac- tion with the past, a spirit of contin- uous improvement. As long as we are inspired by that spirit I believe that our future is se- cure We shall not go down to des- truetion. No matter how often we may tremble on the verge.
