tions" is the subject of a lecture to

and the origins of the Kellogg

leader in socialist movements, will
also give a short talk on what he
considers to be significant in the
present Sino-Japanese difficulties.
Dr. Onderdonk has stated that he
intends to set forth ih his lecture
his analysis of the apparent fail-
ure of the League of Nations to

months, showing that such failure
has had as its largest reason the
difference of the United States.

WIDESPREAD BANK FAILURES CAUSE I

As the first event in honor of the
H ave , Closed Doors in Last
11 Years, He Says.
More than 21 per cent of the 30,-
000 independent unit banks in this
country in 1921 have failed during
the last 11 years, according to fig-
ures given by Robert G. Rodkey,
professor of banking and invest-
ments, who discussed "The Banking
Phase of The Depression" at 8 o'-
clock last night over the University
broadcasting station. In 1930-31
along 3,600 banks were forced to
close tehir doors, he said.
This was the fourth of a series of
talks on present business conditions
sponsored by tIle University. The
series has proved to be a decided
success with tie radio audience, as
many letters are received every day
commending the work being done.
More than 3,000 copies of each talk
are sent out weekly to listeners who
have requested them.
The large number of bank fail-
ures has undermined the confidence
in stronger ones to such a degree
that hoarding alas become wide-
spread, said Professor Rodkey.
Cash Is Sought.
"With confidence at a low ebb
and with a spirit of intense pessi-
mism pervading the national psy-
chology, each remaining bank has
felt it necessary to turn earning as-
sets into cash or its equivalent to a
degree never before known. Only
cash or its equivalent meets the
needs of depositors."
The banks have been forced, un-
der such conditions, said Professor
Rodkey, to adopt a most conserva-
tive loan policy. "Thousands of ap-
plications for loins are being re-
fused every day which, under nor-
mal conditions, banks would have
been willing to grant."
Due to unemployment conditions,
deposits in savings accounts have
been withdrawn at a time when the
banks are in need of cash, he said.
In order to meet their obligations,
the banks have had to force the
payment of some of their outstand-
chants out of business.
"The federal government has
taken the initiative in attempting
to provide means whereby banks centenary of the death of Goethe,a

may be able to borrow on the se- sent Max Montor -in a reading at

sor Rodkey continued.
The purpose of the Reconstruc-
tion Finance corporation is to put
an end to excessive mortality a-
mong banks, and to restore the con-
fidence of the bankers themselves.
This will be accomplished by pro-
viding an agency standing ready to
make advances to banks upon
sound but frozen assets. When
bankers know that there is a large
reservoir upon which they can
draw, they will feel safe in granting
loans to all - worthy borrowers, he
Large branch banks have stood
up better during the depression
than the smaller ones, Professor
Rodkey said. Under governmental
centrol, extension of both branch
and group systems would help ma-
terially to- place banking on a
sounder and more scientific basis.
