A groundless rumor triggered a hysteri- cal nm by panic-stricken depositors on the Security National Bank in 1921, a wild stampede that in the not-so-distant past would have forced the doors to close. But the feds were just a phone call away and im- mediately responded with an emergency transfusion of cash. Within nfinutes, an armored truck arrived on the chaotic scene, and guards began toting bags of currency into the belea- guered bank The sight of so much money instantly calmed the mob of agitated cus- tomers. A federal official announced from the cen- ter of the suddenly silent lobby, "There are thirty million more dollars in the Dallas Reserve Bank, and every dollar of it is behind the Security National." If there had been a hole in the marble floor, the embarrassed depositors would have gladly jumped in it. They scurried for the exit secure in the knowl- edge their money was safe.
