EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT
OF THE

FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF DALLAS
While the closing months of 1921 witnessed some improvement in the banking situation in the Eleventh District, and in
December of that year this institution was enabled to retire its
indebtedness to other Federal reserve banks, the new year opened with considerable uncertainty, and the financial outlook was
far from encouraging.
Of the many problems experienced in the operations of the
bank during the past twelve months, the most difficult was unquestionably that of adopting a safe credit policy for those member banks in an extended condition. The activities of the
Eleventh District are devoted in a large measure to primary production, and since our prosperity is dependent upon the basic industries of farming and cattle raising, it necessarily follows that
any influences affecting those interests are immediately reflected
in our commercial life. The depreciation in the value of our
principal commodities in 1920, and crop failures over a large
part of the agricultural belt in 1921, left many member banks,
particularly the smaller institutions in strictly farming communities, in a very distressing condition. They had exhausted their
sources of liquidation, and with a gradual shrinkage in deposits
were obliged to seek further advances, in order to maintain reserves and provide their customers with sufficient funds to make
another crop. It resolved itself, therefore, into a question of
meeting the credit requirements of those banks until another
crop was harvested.
This condition, largely inherited from 1920-1921, has been
the most serious confronting the management of the Federal
Reserve Bank of Dallas in 1922. Fortunately, the War Finance
Corporation began making loans in the district early in the year.
The use of those facilities by banks in an over-extended condition,
as a means of obtaining long time credits, was rather encouraged.



8

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

While the effect of the advances was immediately felt in the reduction, or retirement of member banks' indebtedness here, this
was not the only advantage. The Corporation's advances to nonmember banks lessened the demands of those institutions on member banks, and both member and non-member banks were enabled,
with the proceeds of the advances, to retire indebtedness outside
the district, which, but for the assistance mentioned, would have
increased the demands on this bank.
In the early spring months the increase in price of commodities was the means of some liquidation, and a more optimistic
feeling among the bankers was created. This improvement, while
not appreciably reducing the lines of credit to extended banks,
nevertheless afforded them some relief, and proved beneficial in
meeting their current demands. The heavy decrease in volume
of business, and lower prices, lessened the credit requirements
of members, and except in the months of June, July and August,
there was a gradual decline in the bank's holdings of rediscounted
paper from the first of the year. At the same time the reserve
ratio was increasing, and purchases of government securities,
and bankers' acceptances, were engaged in as a means of increasing the bank's earnings.
In September the active autumn liquidating season began,
and for the balance of the year the reduction in bank loans was
quite heavy. The liquidation was more manifest in the cities, but
many of the smaller banks anticipated their maturities and retired their lines in full, for the first time since 1919. The improved credit situation in the agricultural section, however, was
offset by developments in west Texas, and southern New Mexico,
where the livestock industry was seriously threatened by a long
drouth. Member banks in the El Paso territory have suffered
severe losses through the depreciation of livestock values, as the
cattle are not in condition to market. Remedial measures are
being taken by moving the cattle to old Mexico, and other places
where pasturage is good, but the outcome is uncertain, and the
situation most distressing. Were it not for this the outlook for
business in the Eleventh District in 1923 could be described as
most encouraging. It is certain that credit conditions are much
improved over a year ago.

Government bond department transactions 1,966,810 items,
aggregating $450,931,625.
Securities received as custodian, $244,628,456.
EARNINGS AND EXPENSES
The volume of earning assets held by the bank on December 31,
1922, was 4.9 per cent less than in 1921, and about the same
ratio has been maintained throughout the year. The bank's gross
earnings during the year were $2,085,774, as compared with
$4,243,648 in 1921. Of this amount $197,994, or 9.5 per cent, resulted from the purchase of paper, and 77.2 per cent, or $1,609,383,
resulted from the rediscount of paper. Current net earnings were
$570,384, as compared with $2,382,792, in 1921. The average rate
on bills discounted was 5.08 per cent, compared with 6.25 per cent
in 1921, and on purchased paper 3.67 per cent, against 6.10 per
cent in 1921. The annual rate of net earnings to paid in capital
was 13.5 per cent in 1922, compared with 56.7 per cent in 1921.



10

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

Current expenses in 1922, including furniture and equipment, were $1,548,100, as compared with $1,860,856 in 1921, a
decrease of $312,756, or 16.8 per cent. The expense account of
the bank has received close attention throughout the year, and
reductions have been made wherever possible. The partial absorption of the expense of Fiscal Agency functions offset the
large decrease in other activities, and there was no diminution in
the free service and facilities rendered member banks, notwithstanding the decreased physical volume of transactions.
On December 31, 1921, after adjustments necessary in closing the bank's books for the year had been made, the bank's
capital was $4,203,000, and surplus $7,394,097. Semi-annual dividends were paid to member banks on June 30 and December 31,
1922, at the rate of 6 per cent per annum. After providing for
depreciation allowances and reserves to care for probably losses
in the bank's assets, the balance in current net earnings of
$102,209 was transferred to surplus, making that account
$7,496,307, on December 31, 1922.
Schedule 1 shows comparative balance sheet as of December 31,
1920, 1921, and 1922.
Schedule 2 shows comparative statement of earnings and expenses in 1920, 1921 and 1922.
Schedule 3 shows disposition of income in 1922.
INVESTMENT OPERATIONS
The very heavy reduction in rediscounts from member banks
caused the bank to enter the open market as a means of increasing its earning assets. The extent of these operations, which
consisted of purchases of bankers' acceptances and government
securities, were governed by the bank's reserve position, and
varied in amounts from one to two million dollars in the early
months, to fifteen and twenty-five millions toward the close of
the year.
Practically all of the purchases of bills were made through
the Federal Reserve Banks of Chicago and New York, although
a few arising from transactions in this district were handled.



Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

n

This policy was adopted as a means of stimulating local interest
in acceptances and creating a discount market for bills in this
district.
Late in the year an arrangement was made with the Federal
Reserve Bank of New York, under which this bank participated,
on a percentage basis, in the New York bank's daily purchases
of acceptances. It frequently happened that these allotments
were not sufficient for our requirements, and in such instances
separate orders, or commitments, were entered into.
The average daily holdings of acceptances in 1922 was
$5,390,898.59, and the average rate on such paper was 3.67 per
cent; compared with $115,882.35, and 6.10 per cent in 1921.
In the latter part of the year the eastern discount markets
broadened considerably on account of the heavy demand for bills
by commercial banks and firms and individuals seeking temporary employment of idle funds. This resulted in the supply of
bills increasing, and the rate temporarily declined. This decline
was only temporary, however, and in November and December
the market stiffened, late purchases being around 4 per cent.
Schedule 13 shows the volume of bankers' acceptances purchased, rates and maturities.
Purchases of government securities, principally treasury
certificates of short maturity, have been made from time to time
during the year, this bank co-operating with the other Federal
reserve banks through an agreement reached at the spring conference of Governors of the Federal reserve banks.
Schedule 14 shows all transactions of government securities
in 1922.
DISCOUNT OPERATIONS

The total volume of paper discounted for, and purchased
from, member banks in the Eleventh District, from other Federal
reserve banks, and in the open market, in 1922, was $270,376,734,
as compared with $772,690,510 in 1921, a decrease of $502,313,776,
or 65 per cent. The accompanying chart indicates the trend, and
shows that except in June, July and August, there has been a
continuous reduction in the volume of rediscounted paper handled



12

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

since January 1. The number of banks served in 1922 was 661, a
decrease of 43, or 6.5 per cent from 1921. The number served
constituted 77 per cent of the total members in the district. The
largest reduction in total amount of rediscounted paper occurred
in September, and amounted to $7,923,000. The total borrowings
by banks, classified by states, were as follows:

RESERVE POSITION

In the latter part of 1921 the bank's reserve position began
to improve with the seasonal liquidation, which resulted in decreased earning assets, increased deposits, and gold holdings. On
December 15, 1921, rediscounts with other Federal reserve banks,
necessary continuously since January 1, were retired. The reserve ratio promptly responded to the changes which occurred
late in 1921, and throughout 1922 our reserve position has been
well above legal requirements. The fluctuations in ratio had no
special significance, as the bank's reserve position has been
largely regulated and influenced by the extent of open market
transactions and outside operations.
From a ratio of 45.5 per cent on January 4, when total cash
reserves aggregated $36,026,000, there was practically a continual advance until March 22, when the ratio increased to 65
per cent, and total reserves aggregated $49,002,000. From that
time until May 31 combined reserves ranged between $45,000,000
and $49,000,000. In June, July and August, on account of increased borrowings of member banks, decreased deposits, and
gold holdings, the ratio ranged between 52 and 66 per cent, the
low point for that period being 52.3 per cent on August 25, when
total cash reserves aggregated $39,259,000.
In September the reserve position again improved, and continued strong for the remainder of the year, the ratio of 74.5
per cent which was reached on October 13, when total cash reserves aggregated $73,083,000, being the high point of the year.
As will be noted from Exhibit A, showing weekly movement
of principal assets and liabilities, total deposits showed an upward
trend from the first of the year, when the aggregate was
$43,972,000, until February 8, when they reached $50,765,000. In
the spring and summer months the changes were rather irregular,
and ranged between $44,000,000 and $48,000,000. In September
the seasonal liquidating period began, and for the remainder of
the year deposits showed a substantial increase.
CLEARING AND COLLECTION OPERATIONS

The number and dollar value of checks handled by the
Transit Department during the year 1922 increased slightly over



14

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

the year 1921, as evidenced by the tabulation appearing in
schedule 17. The number of checks handled by the Head Office
during any one day reached the maximum on October 14, when
113,017 were handled, as compared with the daily maximum of
106,802, handled during 1921.
The
and our
a fewer
methods

clerical force was decreased by twelve during the year,
ability to handle the increased volume of checks with
number of employes can be attributed to improved
and increased efficiency of especially trained employes.

The total number of checks forwarded us for collection
would have been considerably larger had it not been for the
fact that many checks were forwarded by member banks in this
district direct to other Federal reserve banks for collection and
credit to their account with us. An increasing number of banks
have taken advantage of the direct sending privilege which
provides the most expeditious channel through which they could
convert checks payable in other Federal reserve districts into
actually collected funds.
Maturing notes, bills, drafts
items handled for collection and
office in 1922, numbered 83,611,
compared to 58,917, aggregating

and other non-cash collection
credit when paid, by the head
aggregating $74,782,919.79, as
$60,747,959.08 in 1921.

Of the total number of banks using the collection services,
approximately 61 per cent were our member banks, and 39 per
cent other Federal reserve banks and their member banks. The
number of collection items, however, received from other Federal
reserve banks and their member banks, was 56 per cent, as compared to 44 per cent received from our member banks.
Up to August 15, 1922, no charge was made for the collection
services rendered member banks, except such charges as were
made by collecting banks. Since that date, however, in addition to any exchange charge or fee imposed by the collecting or
paying agent, the following charges are being made:
1. Cost of all telegrams, including telegrams in connection
with advice of payment or non-payment of collection items.



Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

15

2. A charge of fifteen cents on each returned unpaid collection item, other than those which have been protested for nonpayment.
3. Cost of insurance and registration in cases where it is
necessary to forward securities or coupons by insured registered
mail.
MOVEMENT OF MEMBERSHIP

On January 1, 1922, the total number of national banks in
this district was 655, with combined capital and surplus of
$116,359,000. During the year 25 national banks were granted
charters, as shown by schedule 20, while 18 were dropped through
liquidation, merger, and other causes, as indicated by schedule
21, making a net increase of 7, or total on December 31, 1922,
of 622.
The total state bank membership on January 1 was 206, with
combined capital and surplus of $21,940,000. During the year
7 state banks were admitted; 14 liquidated, consolidated with
other institutions, or were converted into national banks, making
a net decrease during the year of 7, or a total on December 31,
1922, of 199.
Schedule 24 shows, by states, the number of state bank members on December 31, 1922, together with capital, surplus, and
total resources, as compiled from the latest figures available.
Schedule 25 shows total membership, national and state, by
states, on December 31, 1922.
FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES

The movement of Federal reserve notes in the district in
1922 has been quite similar to that in 1921, a decrease in circulation being shown throughout the year, except for a few weeks
in the fall. From January 4, when notes in actual circulation amounted to $35,226,000, there was a gradual recession
until June 28, when circulation amounted to $25,624,000. This
was the lowest point reached in the year. The ''elasticity" of
this form of currency was very clearly demonstrated in 1922,
as with the movement of cotton in the early fall months the

seasonal demands for currency began, and for the next few weeks
there was a steady increase, the maximum circulation of
$44,430,000 being reached on October 18.
Following the crop movement notes in circulation again decreased, and continued downward, except for a brief period prior
to the holidays, when there normally occurs an active demand for
new currency for Christmas.
The Federal Reserve Agent issued notes to the bank during
the year aggregating $33,684,000, as compared with $25,762,000 in
1921, and $69,245,000 in 1920. The bank returned to the Agent
notes fit for use aggregating $5,334,400, as compared with
$13,217,000 in 1921, and $13,825,000 in 1920. Notes aggregating
$23,453,150 were returned to the Comptroller for destruction, as
compared with $57,760,775 in 1921, and $49,310,520 in 1920.
Schedule 27 shows the number of notes, by denomination,
received, issued, and returned to the Comptroller for redemption during 1922, while schedule 28 is a consolidated statement of
notes received, issued to the bank, and returned to the Comptroller since organization, and on hand December 31, 1922.
Schedule 29 shows the inter-district movement of notes during 1920.
FEDERAL RESERVE BANK NOTES
On December 31, 1921, the bank had Federal reserve bank
notes outstanding of $2,949,800, and notes in actual circulation
amounting to $2,726,441. New notes aggregating $2,572,000
were issued in 1922; notes aggregating $2,890,800 were sent to
Washington for redemption; $2,631,000 were outstanding, and
$704,309 in actual circulation on December 30, 1922.
On the same date notes aggregating $2,112,000 were held by
the Comptroller as reserve stock, and securities aggregating
$1,395,900, consisting of 2 per cent consols of 1930, were lodged
with the United States Treasurer as cover for the notes.
In December special 2 per cent C. of I. (Pittman Act)
aggregating $1,900,000, purchased originally as security for F. R.
bank notes, but against which no circulation was outstanding,
were retired.

The amount of Federal reserve bank notes outstanding on
December 31, 1921, amounts issued to replace unfit notes, and
redemptions in 1922, are shown by schedule 31.
FIDUCIARY POWERS TO NATIONAL BANKS

Six additional banks were granted authority to act in fiduciary capacities in 1922, making a total of 67 which have received
such approval, as shown in schedule 33.
There has been no unusual developments in this connection
in 1922, or any indication of special interest on the part of
national banks in receiving trust powers, and handling that
character of business. Inquiries were received from several
banks, and they were furnished blanks and full information as
to requirements. In two or three instances the applications were
filed, but an investigation of the condition of the applicants disclosed that approval of the request was not justified, and the
applying banks were so informed. A few of the larger banks
in the cities continued to feature fiduciary functions, and a profiitable class of business has been derived from this source. As
commented upon in previous reports, however, the majority of
banks are not actively exercising the powers which have been
granted them under Section 11.
MEMBER BANK RELATIONS DEPARTMENT

The field representatives and the Assistant Federal Reserve
Agent in charge of the Member Bank Relations Department made
931 visits to member and non-member banks during the year
1922. Of this number 528 were regular member bank calls, made
for the purpose of better acquainting the member banks with
the operations of the Federal Reserve System, and to explain the
different facilities offered. In view of the fact that a great number of our member banks were not using all of the facilities
offered them by the Federal reserve bank, these visits have been
very helpful to them.
Representatives of the department made 179 special visits
to member banks for the purpose of securing first-hand information as to the conditions existing in the different localities, and
for the further purpose of collecting past due rediscounts. It

ly

has been necessary, in a great many instances, for a representative to remain in a town for several days in order to complete the
work. These special assignments have naturally resulted in a
decrease in the number of banks visited by the representatives
of this department.
Representatives visited 224 non-member banks, located in
the same town with member banks. While no special efforts were
put forth to solicit membership in the Federal Reserve System,
we have called on all non-member banks located in towns with
members, and explained operations of the System to them, and
furnished any other information desired. Where requested, our
representatives have attended meetings of directors, and stockholders, of non-members for the purpose of explaining requirements of membership and the advantage of the connection.
The department had a representative (or Assistant Federal
Reserve Agent in charge of the department) at every bankers'
convention and group meeting in the district, and in a great many
instances addresses have been made by the Assistant Federal
Reserve Agent. A representative also attended a great many
public gatherings, such as chambers of commerce meetings, of
rotary clubs, and other similar organizations; several addresses
having been made before these bodies by the Assistant Federal
Reserve Agent in charge of the department.
During the year approximately 800 member banks were
furnished with a poster frame and glass, advertising membership in the System. New posters will be furnished at intervals
of something like six months, to be substituted for the old posters.
At every opportunity member bankers, non-member bankers,
and the general public are extended a special invitation to call
at the bank, and as a result of these invitations we have visitors
practically every day. They are shown through the building
and the operations of the different departments are fully explained. These visits have proven to be especially instructive to
member bankers and enables them to get first-hand information
as to the proper handling of the different transactions with this
institution. Experience has shown that this personal contact



20

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

permits a closer relationship and affords opportunity for a clearer understanding and appreciation of the problems of the member
bank.
BANK EXAMINATIONS
Two hundred and forty bank examinations were made by
our Examination Department during the year 1922. Every state
bank member in our district was examined at least once during
the year, with the exception of two banks in Arizona, which
were scheduled for joint examination in December, but could not
be reached at that time by the state examiners.
By comparison with the results for the previous year there
was a decrease in the number of state banks examined in connection with applications for membership, and also a decline in
the number of special or emergency examinations of state banks,
the decrease in each instance being largely attributable, directly
or indirectly, to the improved condition of these banks.
The following comparative summary shows the number of
examinations of various kinds conducted during 1921 and 1922:

Included in the total number of examinations made during

work that we were not called upon to perform in 1922.



Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

21

The total distance traveled by our examiners in the course
of their work during the past year was 60,715 miles. This distance
being, in respect to its area, one of the four largest districts in
the System, and having the third largest number of state bank
members, the mileage to be covered in our examination work is
necessarily large, particularly so in view of the exigencies involved in arranging itineraries and dates to conform to the
plans of the state examiners. It should be said, however, that
almost without exception, the state examiners, as well as the
various state banking commissioners, have accorded us the utmost
co-operation and assistance in arranging joint examinations of
our members.
Due to the general improvement in banking conditions, as
compared with the previous year, we were able to make a reduction in our force of examiners early in 1922, the number of fulltime field men being reduced from five to three. At the same
time it has been our constant endeavor to improve our examination methods with a view of enhancing the efficiency and thoroughness of the work. To this end, early in 1922, with the consent
and approval of the Federal Reserve Board, we revised our examination report form by modifying or enlarging the schedules
or reportable information with a view of securing a more thorough
and complete picture of local credit conditions than was possible
under the old form of report.
INTERNAL ORGANIZATION AND PERSONNEL

On January 1, 1922, the personnel of the Board of Directors
was John T. Scott, Howell E. Smith, B. A. McKinney, Class A;
Marion Sansom, Frank Kell, J. J. Culbertson, Class B;
W. F. Ramsey, W. B. Newsome, H. 0. Wooten, Class C.
The Board of Directors held 12 meetings in 1922, with an
average attendance of 8. In January the following officers were
elected to serve in 1922:
B. A. McKinney, Governor.
R. G. Emerson, Deputy Governor.
R. R. Gilbert, Cashier.
R. B. Coleman, Assistant Cashier.
Fred Harris, Assistant Cashier.
W. 0. Ford, Assistant Cashier.
J. L. Lumpkin, Assistant Cashier.
Reece T. Freeman, Assistant Cashier.
C. C. Huff, General Counsel.
E. B. Stroud, Jr., Office Counsel.



22

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

At the same time the Federal Reserve Agent announced the
reappointment of Chas. C. Hall and Dwight P. Reordan, Assistant
Federal Reserve Agents.
Mr. R. L. Ball, Chairman of the National Bank of Commerce
of San Antonio, was re-elected a member of the Federal Advisory
Council, to represent the Eleventh District in 1922.
At the January meeting of the Board Messrs. Culbertson,
Newsome and Smith, were appointed members of the Executive
Committee. These gentlemen, with the Governor and Federal
Reserve Agent, constituted the Committee until May, when
Messrs. Sansom and Scott replaced Messrs. Culbertson and
Newsome on the Committee. While only six formal sessions of the
Committee were held in 1922, informal conferences upon administrative policies were had almost daily.
There were but two changes in officials during the year. In
January Val J. Grund, formerly on the staff of the Chief Federal
Reserve Examiner, was elected General Auditor, succeeding
Carl B. Teagarden, who resigned in November, 1921.
A shadow was cast over the bank by the death of Judge
William F. Ramsey, Chairman of the Board and Federal Reserve
Agent, on October 27. The Judge's genial personality and kindly
disposition, greatly endeared him to his fellow directors, and
entire official and clerical staff, many of whom had been associated with him during his entire connection with this institution, of nearly seven years. His broad vision, keen knowledge
of conditions, and sympathetic interest in the problems of the
member banks, earned for him the respect and high esteem of the
entire banking fraternity of the Eleventh District.
On November 3 the Federal Reserve Board appointed
W. B. Newsome, Class C Director and Deputy Chairman of the
Board, as Chairman and Federal Reserve Agent, to serve until
December 31. On December 27 Mr. Newsome was reappointed
indefinitely, or pending the appointment of a new Class C Director
for the full three year term, (succeeding Mr. H. 0. Wooten) and
designation as Federal Reserve Agent.
The terms of Messrs. B. A. McKinney, Class A Director,
Group 3, and Marion Sansom, Class B Director, Group 1, expired



Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

23

on December 31, 1922. The annual election conducted in
November resulted in W. H. Patrick, President of the First
National Bank of Clarendon, Texas, being chosen to succeed
Mr. McKinney, (who did not seek re-election) and the re-election
of Mr. Sansom.
On December 11 the Federal Reserve Board announced the
appointment of Clarence E. Linz of Dallas, as Class C Director,
to serve the unexpired term of Judge Ramsey, or until December
31, 1923.
On December 31, 1922, the total number of officers and employes at the head office and branches was 600, as compared with
637 on December 31, 1921, and 613 on December 31, 1920. The
reduction of 37 in the total number does not reflect the actual
or net decrease, as included in the total on December 31 were 18
temporary employes, ]5 of which were engaged in Fiscal Agency
work at the head office and El Paso Branch, and 3 assigned to
the banking departments of the head office and El Paso Branch.
Therefore, the number of regular employes at the head office and
branches on December 31, 1922, was 582, as compared with 637
on December 31, 1921, or a net reduction in the year of 55
employes.
While it was possible to make reductions in the staff in
practically every department in 1922, the decreases effected in the
Credit, Loan & Discount, Service and Transit departments were
larger than in others. This was accomplished, not alone by the
reduced volume of operations, but redistribution of work in the
departments, and increased efficiency and co-operation of the
staff.
During the year the Bookkeeping Department was reorganized, various outside accounting functions being transferred to
it, and the title changed to "Accounting Department." In the
transfer it was necessary to provide additional employes for the
Accounting Department, and at the end of the year the force
numbered 31, as compared with 17 in the Bookkeeping Department on January 1. The re-organization did not involve any increase in the total number of employes, however, but merely the
reassignment of those who had previously been engaged in other
accounting functions.

FISCAL AGENCY OPERATIONS

The Fiscal Agency Department was called upon during the
year 1922 to perform certain functions not theretofore handled
on a large scale; namely, the redemption of Victory Notes and
War Savings Certificates, and the handling of War Finance Corporation matters.
Acting as fiscal agent for the War Finance Corporation during the time the peak load was being handled as to volume of
loans and renewals, ten employes were assigned to that work,
eight of whom were still engaged at the end of the year. This
bank disburses funds and attends to the collection of principal
and interest on advances made for the Corporation, and acts as
custodian of notes, chattels and collateral.
It will be noted, by referring to the schedule shown, that
$26,500,000 was advanced for the Corporation during the year
1922, and repayments of 50 per cent of that amount received.
This work was carried on at the El Paso Branch, as well as the
Head Office.
It was necessary to build up a large force of employes to
take care of the redemption and exchange of War Savings Certificates, Series 1918, maturing January 1, 1923, there being
twenty-five extra employes in the Department at the close of
the year, the majority of whom were engaged during the latter
part of December. The redemption of War Savings Stamps, as
well as called Victory Notes was also handled by our branches.
In making a comparison as to the volume of work handled
in the Department for the years 1921 and 1922, it will be noted
that Liberty Bonds and Certificates of Indebtedness transactions
handled during the year 1922 were less than the previous year;
however, on the other hand, the increase in volume incident to
the redemption of Victory Notes and War Savings Certificates
more than offset the decrease in other functions.
At the beginning of 1922, the Department had forty-nine
employes; at the close of the year there were sixty-four, twentyfive of whom were extra, fourteen employed temporarily and
eleven transferred from other departments to handle War Sav


Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

25

ings work, which would show a reduction of ten employes insofar
as regular functions are concerned. In addition to these ten
employes there were transferred during the year from various
divisions of the department, five employes to the War Finance
Corporation Division, thus allowing a reduction of fifteen employes on regular functions only. This comparison is made
because of the fact that the handling of redemption of War
Savings Certificates and other Government securities other than
short time Certificates of Indebtedness are not regular transactions and we are called upon to handle such only once or twice
a year for a short period.

OPERATIONS OF THE EL PASO BRANCH
On January 1, 1922, the directorate of the Branch was composed of W. C. Weiss, W. W. Turney, U. S. Stewart, A. P. Coles
and E. M. Hurd. No changes in the board have occurred during
the year.
The officers elected to serve during 1922 were W. C. Weiss,
Manager; M. Crump, Cashier; Allen Sayles, Assistant Cashier;
W. P. Clarke, Assistant Federal Reserve Agent and Auditor.
On January 1, 1922, the branch had 64 employes, while at
the close of the year the staff numbered 63, distributed by departments as follows:
Auditing 2, Accounting 3, Cash 9, Credit 3, Fiscal Agency 4,
Loan and Discount 5, Mailing 3, Officers' Secretaries 3, Service
and Protection 16, Transit 14, Special Representatives 1.
Gross earnings of the Branch in 1922 were $329,823.25, compared with $731,754.21 in 1921. Current net earnings in 1922
were $166,967.25, compared with $535,837.37 in 1921. Expenses
of the Branch in 1922 were $162,856.00, as compared with
$195,916.84 in 1921.
At the close of the year the Branch membership consisted
of 55 national and 9 state banks with capital and surplus of
$8,280,000 for national, and $976,000 for state banks. There was
a decrease in membership during the year of seven banks; four
by consolidation, one by liquidation, and two by failure.



26

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

Total discounts and rediscounts in 1922 amounted to
$35,795,585.96, or approximately $62,000,000 less than the amount
discounted during 1921. At the close of business December 31
the total paper held aggregated $4,593,458.06, distributed as follows :
Rediscounts
$4,412,081.13
Member Bank Collateral Notes
172,030.00
Bill of lading drafts
9,346.93
At the close of the year paper aggregating $346,355.01 was
held from four suspended member banks. Total amount of paper
held from these institutions when they suspended was $411,462.73,
a reduction of $65,107.72 having been effected.
Discount facilities were extended 65 banks during the year;
1,536 offerings containing 9,809 notes and drafts being received
and analyzed. There were also received and analyzed 574 offerings containing 2,729 notes totaling $14,504,005.25, tendered as
additional collateral. At the close of the year additional collateral was in hand from 14 banks, collateral to secure transit
sendings from one bank and directors' guaranties to secure rediscounts from 7 banks.
The service of the Cash Department was freely used in 1922.
Currency and coin shipments received averaged 554 per month,
and shipments forwarded averaged 283 per month. Shipments
received in the year aggregated 6,648, totaling $28,920,125.84,
while shipments forwarded
aggregated 3,397, totaling
$31,759,233.87. A total of 2,878,343 pieces of currency, and
6,121,208 coins were received, verified, and assorted during the
year. The work of handling this volume was greatly increased
by a more rigorous inspection of all incoming gold and silver
coin for the detection of light weight and uncurrent coin.
Transfers of funds for member banks were effected to the
number of 13,251, the total amount involved being $185,381,970.77.
Transit operations included the collection of checks drawn
upon 61 member and 64 non-member banks, $2,095,583 items totaling $230,300,265.18 drawn upon these institutions, were handled
in 1922. There were received from banks in the branch territory,
and forwarded for collection to other Federal reserve banks and



Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

27

branches, 215,027 items, totaling $28,850,152.91. Warrants drawn
on the Treasurer of the United States were received and paid,
the number of these items being 195,484 and their amount
$19,665,743.65. The grand total of all items handled was
2,506,094, totaling $278,816,161.74, representing a monthly average of 208,841.
In 1921, 2,380,335 items, aggregating
$308,810,838.76 were handled.
During the year the Branch acted as Fiscal Agent and Custodian for the War Finance Corporation, and in that capacity
made 118 advances, aggregating $9,856,990, to borrowing institutions. At the close of the year, paper aggregating $8,226,106.82
was held for the Corporation's account; all repayments and renewals thereof being handled on the Corporation's behalf. The
Branch also began to function as Fiscal Agent of the United States
to the extent of handling the redemption of War Savings Stamps,
exchange of Treasury Savings Certificates therefor, and Victory
Notes, called by the Treasury Department for redemption. It is
anticipated that approximately $1,000,000.00 in War Savings
Stamps will be redeemed.
The Branch occupies its own building, a structure of two
floors, mezzanine and basement, built and occupied in 1920.
OPERATIONS OF THE HOUSTON BRANCH

On January 1, 1922, the directorate of the Branch was composed of Frank Andrews, Guy M. Bryan, J. J. Davis, R. M. Farrar
and E. F. Gossett. In August Mr. Davis resigned, on account of
ill health, and Manager Ikard was appointed to fill the vacancy.
The officers elected to serve during 1922 were Floyd Ikard,
Manager; L. E. Dignan, Cashier; M. D. Jenkins, Assistant Cashier, and R. L. King, Assistant Federal Reserve Agent and Auditor.
On January 1, 1922, the Branch had 73 employes, while at
the close of the year the staff numbered 70, distributed by departments as follows:
Accounting 6, Auditing 2, Cash 10, Collection 2, Credit 1,
Loan and Discount 4, Mailing 3, Transit 18, Service 24.
It should be mentioned that, although the net reduction in
the total number of employes was but three, the actual clerical



28

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

force was decreased by eight. Eemoval to the new building
necessitated the employment of five additional employes for its
proper maintenance. During the past two years the clerical force
has been reduced approximately 20 per cent.
Gross earnings of the Branch in 1922 were $171,392.94, compared with 618,931.90 in 1921. Expenses in 1922, including depreciation charges, were $209,786.99. The lack of demand for
accommodation was the cause of decreased earnings. As the
Branch is not permitted to engage in open market purchases, an
average of some $5,000,000 remained idle during the year, so far
as the Branch was concerned.
At the close of the year the Branch membership consisted of
99 national and 39 state banks with capital and surplus of
$23,163,000 for national and $4,257,000 for state banks. There
was a net increase in membership during the year of three, six
new members being added while two consolidations were effected,
and one failure occurred. The number of non-member banks
decreased 19, there now being 255. Several of the larger state
bank members secured national bank charters during the year.
Discount operations were slack during the entire year. In
the fall of 1921 80 of the 138 member banks were borrowing
$11,700,000 from the Branch. Due to fairly favorable yields and
prices of cotton and rice, the activities of the War Finance
Corporation, Federal Land Bank, and other agencies, the number of borrowers was reduced to 63, and total borrowings to
$3,900,000 by March, 1922. Although the seasonal demand for
funds comes in the spring, loans to member banks continued to
decline through the summer and fall, and on December 30, 1922,
bills discounted aggregated only $586,274.15 to 18 banks, which
was the lowest point reached since the Branch was established.
On that date member banks' reserves amounted to $13,227,153.54.
The peak of bills discounted since the Branch opened was
$22,100,000 on September 3, 1920, on which date member banks'
reserves were $10,700,000.
The following table, showing the total discounted paper held
by the Branch at the close of the last four years, is especially
interesting:
December 31, 1919
$ 9,500,000
December 31, 1920
10,500,000
December 31, 1921
7,100,000
December 31, 1922
586,000

The Loan and Credit Departments received for credit 12,198
notes amounting to $34,386,167.80, of which 2,055, aggregating
$2,657,082.50 were rejected for various reasons.
Since the Branch was established two member banks have
failed, one in 1921 and another in 1922. The former's indebtedness at the time of closing was $64,614.92. It has since been
reduced to $19,702.49, with prospects of entire liquidation. The
latter bank was reorganized and its indebtedness, which was less
than $10,000, was paid.
Operations of the Cash Department were heavier than ever
before. Currency and coin shipments received aggregated 4,769,
totaling $37,930,971.28, while outgoing shipments numbered 5,205,
and amounted to $49,212,172.00. Wire transfers received aggregated $420,864,008.11, and those sent $235,191,951.32. During
the latter part of the year the practice of receiving gold coin at
bullion value was begun.
The Transit Department also experienced its busiest year,
5,636,357 items, aggregating $921,693,104.50 being handled. The
largest number of items handled in one day was 37,926 and the
smallest 10,828. An average of 18 people were employed in this
department.
The activities of the Collection Department have steadily
grown. Items numbering 28,475, amounting to $46,435,098.60
were received as compared to 19,415 items of the value of
$27,619,264.98 during 1921. Collection was affected on 25,192
items totaling $45,413,578.93.
Trust custodies declined gradually from $10,700,000 on
December 31, 1921 to $6,400,000 on July 5, 1922, but shortly thereafter increased to approximately $11,000,000, around which figure
they remained during the balance of the year, closing on December 30, 1922, at $11,195,562.
The new building was occupied in February. It admirably
serves the purpose of a modern banking room, providing adequate space for all departments. The total investment in real
estate, banking house and fixtures is $408,317.60.
REVIEW OF BUSINESS CONDITIONS IN 1922
The industrial recovery which began in 1921 continued with
steadily increasing momentum throughout the year just ended.



30

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

Illustrative of the improvement which occurred in business and
financial conditions is the fact that member banks' individual
deposits rose from $561,000,000 on December 31, 1921, to approximately $675,000,000 on December 31, 1922, which brought
deposits up to a total that was only about seven per cent below
the record peak of $725,000,000 reached in 1920.
The outstanding factor in the upward trend of business conditions was the improved position attained by the district's leading industry, agriculture. Farm products, which in 1920 and
1921 suffered a relatively greater depreciation than did most of
the country's other basic products, took an upwTard turn in 1922,
and this reaction went far towards bringing the prices which the
farmer receives to a parity with those he has to pay. In fact, the
district's cotton crop in 1922, left in the hands of the producers
a comfortable margin of profit, due to the economy with which
it was produced and to the sharp advance that occurred in the
cotton market last fall when the rapid depletion of the visible
supply, coupled with the fact that the country had produced
another short crop, carried the price almost up to war-time levels.
In this district, despite a heavy increase in cotton acreage over
that of 1921, the 1922 yield seems to have fallen below the average
for the previous ten years, due to weather and insect damage.
The district's feed crops, however, were fairly successful, the
yield being probably sufficient to supply home consumption until
the 1923 crops are harvested.
The livestock industry in the Southwest made further headway in recovering from the trying conditions of 1920 and 1921.
The advances made in this district by the War Finance Corporation during the past fifteen months, aggregating $32,000,000, had
a stabilizing effect upon financial and market conditions, and
served to tide many badly extended banks over the worst of the
recent depression. The growth of deposits in 1922 enabled many
of these banks to retire a large part of their indebtedness to the
Corporation and to resume something like their normal function
in financing the current needs of the livestock growers. Although some sections of the district—particularly New Mexico—
suffered another prolonged drouth, late fall rains placed most
of the range country in fair condition for wintering stock, and
the outlook generally is reasonably favorable.



Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas
Wholesale and retail trade reacted well during 1922 to the
more favorable trend of developments in the basic industries.
Trade activity improved steadily, both in volume and uniformity.
Most dealers made the January inventory taking the occasion
for scaling stock values down to a bedrock basis, following a
year of steadily falling prices. Losses Avere written off by the
stronger firms, and a program of efficiency and economy, as well
as a more cautious credit policy, was outlined for the new year's
operations. At the same time, many of the weaker firms succumbed to the strain imposed upon their resources by losses sustained from depreciation or mismanagement, with the result that
the month of February witnessed the heaviest aggregate of commercial failures ever recorded in this district. From that time
on, however, conditions grew steadily better. Wholesale distribution was enlivened by the promise of good crops, and with
the fulfillment of this promise business in all lines was expanded.
Sales steadily increased, the commercial mortality rate declined,
and the year ended with retailers reporting a very satisfactory
December trade.
The district's oil industry received a fair share of the prosperity which characterized the general situation during the year.
With the market price of oil standing at a fairly lucrative figure,
the district's oil fields established a new high record of production for the month of March, and although both the price and the
volume of production subsequently declined, the average level
of oil values for the year was well above that of 1921. Another
feature of the district's mineral resources that came in for its
share of industrial progress was the mining industry in Arizona
and New Mexico. Resumption of activity by the copper mines
and smelters in those states served to inject new life in the
business situation there, and placed a brighter aspect upon the
outlook in that section for 1923.
No labor disturbances of major importance, except the railway shopmen's strike, occurred during the past year. While
there has been a surplus of common labor throughout the year,
the demand for skilled labor showed a steady increase, and at
the close of the year there was little, if any, surplus in the supply.
The building industry, in particular, enjoyed another busy year.
Construction enterprises, as measured by the valuation of permits
issued at the larger cities, reflected an increase of 50 per cent
for the first quarter of the year over the corresponding period in
1921, and while this spread was gradually reduced during the
succeeding months, the volume of construction for the entire
year was well above that of 1921.
