Winthrop W. Aldrich, chairman of the Chase National Bank, brought the' story to Washington buried in a 14,000 word condemnation of the new deal cen-j tral bank hill. He told how the! Federal Reserve Board blocked: efforts of the New York and other j reserve banks to increase discount: rates in the first half of 1929. Some New York bankers sided with the board to keep interest rates down and, inferentially, to Keep speculation going. Notable among them was charles E. j Mitchell who was driven from control of the National City Bankj by senate stock market investiga-j tion revelations. Aldrich testified before the senate committee. He complained of political control of banking andj credit inherent in the administra-; tion bill and, specifically, that thei plan would shift from the 12 re-j gional Federal Reserve Banks to the Feederal Reserve Board authority to change discount rates. The discount rate is the interest! charged by a federal reserve bank j for lending to . private member, banks. The rate varies among thei reserve districts and, in general,' controls the interest charges of. private bankers to their custom- r ers. Referring to the new deal plan to permit a politically controlled | reserve board in Washington, de-j cide when j Minneapolis, Kansas j City or any other reserve bank; center shall change its discount rate, Aldridge said: "This seems a strange solution, for on the whole the record of the reserve banks has'been hetter in the matter of rate changes than I the record of the Federal Reserve Board. . "I. refer especially to the longj differencing of opinion between' certain of the reserve banks and the Federal Reserve Board over the proposed increase of discount rates in -the first half of 1929 (just before Mr. | Hoover's inaugiirar tion), as a means for curbing the rising tide of stock market speculation, i Continued on Paee 2.' .
