Trade Balance and Mediterranean Threat Are Blamed ' PARIS, Prance— (IF)—A fresh plunge 6l the franc to its lowest level in nearly a decade Wednesday night raised the acute political question of exchange Control, which in many French minds is associated with economic dictatorship. From its opening at 28.04 francs to the dollar to a close of 29.35, the franc fell steadily throughout the day. The government's currency stabilisation fund, which had lost heavily in a previous attempt to check the franc's fall, dropped out of the market It was said the fund's directors had decided to give the franc more freedom. They predicted it would fall to 30 to the dollar. Unfavorable foreign trade reports were consideired the chief factor in Wednesday's decline, although thj Mediterranean crisis and the domestic political situation also were blamed. Finance Minister Georges Bonne hastily summoned Paul Baudoln member of former Premier Leon Blum's "brain trust" and now a director of the Bank of Indo-China Baudoin is expert in exchange. U. S. Commissioner Huff Quits at Hot Springs HOT SPRINGS, Ark.-W)-C. Floyd Huff, Jr.. resigned Thursday as U. S commissioner because "I do not fee' [ can continue to give the time required to the office."

Adverse Balance in Trade Expected But Much of It Is for Raw Materials, to Be Reshipped Later By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON-Just because the Jnited tates had an "adverse" bal- Sance of trade in 1936 and expects anther one for 1937 is no reason for business men to start jumping off •ridges. Many economists refuse to call it an adverse" or unfavorable" balance of rade. Instead they call it an "import urplus." The department of commerce insists it should be simply an 'unbalance of payments," since only art of it represents a trade in goods, lipping services, interest and dividends and tourist expenditures enter nto it. But the fact remains that in 1936, 'or the first time in decades, the Unit- d States had an import surplus. It amounted to $153,000,000. Even so it xported $34,000,000 more of actual oods than it imported. Th«S deficit ame in such items as American tour- st expenditures abroad, services of oreign ships in carrying American reduce, and other "invisibles." Total xports, goods, services and all were 3,483,000,000. Bigger One Next Year There will be a larger unbalance f payments in 1037. The department f commerce reports there is already this year a surplus of more than $140,000,000 in imports of actual goods over exports. The amount of tourist expenditures abroad, shipping service charges and other "incisibles" so far this year is not known. The department believes it is far in excess of the amount payable to the United States, so the "adverse" balance of trade will be fairly imposing, perhaps several hundreds of millions. But the appearance of an "adverse" balance of trade does not mean that the republic is falling. England has had an adverse balance of trade in merchandise for generations. It has made up the difference by supplying shipping service and capital to other countries, while at the same time enticing tourists to spend lavishly in dear old England. Foreign nations in debt to the United States can pay only in goods or service. And they can not amass a margin to pay the debts if they are required to buy from the United States as much as they sell it. A Slngn of Good Times Of course there are boat loads of arguments on both sides of the question as to whether a permanent "favorable" balance of trade is beneficial to a nation. The department of commerce supplies information helping to throw a favorable light on the present trade deficit. This country is better off, so is able to buy more abroad. One of the indications of good times here is the increase in American tourist travel abroad. Then, too, currency devaluations abrfcad have reduced the cost to America of foreign goods. Because these prices are low, American manufacturers are buying foreign raw materials heavily. Ultimately foreign prices are sure to rise, so American manufacturers, with supplies of cheaper raw material bought in advance, can undersell foreign goods later. It is noteworthy, in support of this, that the principal increase in imports to this country is in raw, materials, such as rubber, part of which will be later exported as finished goods. The department of commerce insists also that the trade pacts are helping break down trade barriers, but that is something likely to be a subject of political wars for years to come.

Hot Springs had to be appeased, nnd it was necessary for tne governor to make amends for the gambling para- phenalia which he had a few months ago destroyed. Just what that trndi was I do not know, but I do know that the same gambling operations are being carried on at Hot Springs today as before the spectacular raid and Governor Bailey is responsible for conditions that .now exist. Just wha he is to receive from it is for you to decide. The mayor says he is to receive the votes—others say there were other considerations. "The proud boast of Governor Bailey is that he will destroy any man who opposes him as he did the gamblers at Hot Springs in January of this year If gambling was then 'morally wrong and economically unsound,' tell the people, Governor Bailey,' why it is no equally true today." —: «• 9 » Dairy Program Is (Continued from Page One) as well as a number of brood sows. fargers in the neighboring counties of Polk and Little River have mani Stephen Decatur (Continued from Page One) were pierced by one ray of sunlight: the United States refused the tribute demanded by the Barbary Rovers."

Arrangements have been made for one or more Intrepid (as the ketch had been christened) entered the harbor by night, the Siren standing far off shore. Decatur's men were kept below hatches, only a small squad dressed in native costume remained on deck to work the vessel. The native pilot shouted to the crew aboard the Phila. delphia that he had lost his anchors. He asked permission to tie up to the frigate. Lines were passed, the Intrepid ranged alongshide, and at a signal the Americans burst from the hatches, swarmed aboard the big warship, overpowered the crew, and set the vessel thoroughly alight. The job was done under the guns of other shipping in harbor and of the fort, and as the Philadelphia blazed to her grave, the Intrepid slipped safely out of the harbor and reached the open sea.
