New Federal Debt Manager Has Own Ideas on His Job By SAM DAWSOX , NEW YORK l.fl — W. Randolph Burgess, the Now York banker tapped to become the manager of the 207 billion dollar federal debt, has some very definite Ideas on how to handle It. He wants to make the huge debt easier to manage—nnd at the same time make your dollar buy more. His Ideas are close enough to those held by the Federal reserve Board to make chances good that the old feud between the board and the U.. S Treasury over easy money vs. Inflation won't be popping up again In the next lour years. Burgess, now chairman of the executive committee of the National City Bank of New York, Is to become special deputy in charge of debt management and inone tary policy under George M. Hum phrey, treasury secretary de.ilg nate. Like Humphrey nnd Under Sec- ratary'designate Marlon u. Fol- lom, Burgess has been closely connected, with a Federal Reserve regional bank and knows the FRB's problems. The three top treasury officials— to-be will be working with a for iner treasury official.

Burgesi said today In dcclhiln further comment now. He has Ion been articulate on the subject, both criticism of past policies and advocacy of change. Based on ils, he is known to favor: Converting into stable long-term eht a si7,ablo part of the present ontlng debt—(hat great mass of ibrt-term government securities •hlch the Treasury mu-sl con- tantly turn over by issuing new no's for old ones. Offering belter Interest rates— three per cent or more." he said ncently, as compared to the nres- ut 2>-i nef cent top on inarkel- ble securities. Making U. S. savings bonds more attractive Letting the Federal Reserve System «ct In Us appointed field of managing currency and credit. Encouraging the Federal Re- servo to make Us credit policy flexible—such as abandoning Us present inflexible IV. per cent discount rate. Returning when possible to a gold standard—he says: "When European ami world monetary reconstruction has restored free convertibility at least pmong the principal currencies, the ttms will he ripo to readopt the principle of an unrestricted gold standard here." Burgess definitely feels that tin Federal Reserve should be incle pendent of the U. S. Treasury, al though working with It.
