County banks anxious to give service

The State Superintendent of Banks today interpreted President Roosevelt's banking holiday proclamation as meaning that no business could be transacted by any of the banks in Ohio. Consequently, Huron County banks were not permitted to open today.

Local banks during the past week have gone much father than those in most communities to keep trade activity moving as much as possible.

Today the national regulations were awaited in ordered that they might take steps toward restoring normal credit facilities in the community. As fast as the information can be secured they are studying the methods, which the national government is devising to deal with the situation so as to lose no time in giving Huron County the earliest possible benefits of the program.

2,000 attend churches here Sunday night

About 750 persons including more than 100 young people crowded the Presbyterian church last night from front to back and from side to side when another union church meeting arranged by laymen of various local churches was held.

Chairs were placed on each side of the organ at the rear of the seat section and in the aisles.

The audience was thrilled by the compelling sermon preached by the Rev. W.H. Shields and there was inspiring music sung by the choir and the congregation and splendidly interpreted organ numbers by Mrs. George S. Steward.

The Rev. S.H. Gross, rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, impressively read from Luke of the story of Zacheus, the undersized, hated and detested tax collector, who after being kept back by the crowds, climbed a sycamore tree to view the Master; and who heard the burning words, "Come down for today I must abide in your house."
