mtT . M ALAKOFF NEW8 OPINION ,,, ,. AND THE BANKS By F. N. SHEPHERD Executive Manager A merican Bankers Associatlon banking today appears in a wholly distorted ltght in the eyes some, the more reasoning elements in our population undoubtedly have a less Jaundiced view tilan would appear from cer- tain irresponsible oratorG, often posing as spokes. men for that in. definite quantity called "the mass" of our people. Anti-social acts on tim p a r t of F. N. SHEPHERD some bankers for- mcrly have been subject of spectacular exposures, l can say with~lt reservation that were in no way typical of the acts attitudes of the vast majority of fellow bankers. The public mind shocked into the belief that these deal instances were far more rep- mtative than they really were, and belief has been encouraged by po- and demagogic elements. The Bankers Today The bankers who are in charge of :}ur banks today represent men who withstood the temptations and avoided economic pitfalls of tim great If they had not they would not there, or their banks would not heen able to survive the rack and ruin of ttle economic hurricane, by which even many hanks and bankers, whose conduct was above reproach, have been destroyed. The other typee bankers, those that fell below thl high standards of professional ethic| business prudence that character- lzed those that remain, have passed out of the picture. R,~It they have left for those that remain a difficult herR- o, suspicion and ill will. How irrational this is, when we re- fleet that not more tban three or four per cent of our entire population suf- fered personal loss because of what banker did or neglected to do, whereas literally millions of bank de- iposltors did not lose a eingle cent as a of banking difficulties and owe a vote of confidence and thanks to their own bankers who were true to the highest conceptions of their p and brought their iilStitll- and t~eir customers s a f e I y through the greate,~t business disaster world has ever seen. It has been a peculiar feature of the psychological distortion of the times that many who owe nothing but gratitude to their bankers joined in blanking the banker far out of proportion with any rational consideration of the fame.
