FACE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MAY 29, • 1947 Britain Stresses Dollar Shortage U. S. Warned to Gire Relief Lest Foreign Markers Collapse LONDON, May 29. (UP)—A w*U informed British source warned yesterday that unless the United States acts to ease the world dollar shortage, Britain-- ixnd other foreign countries soon will find themselves unable to purchn.<.a American goods. This source declared that Britain had no intention of asking liie United States for a new loan despite . tlie rapid dwindling of lust year's $3,750,000,030 American ad' vance. Instead, the source said, ''the shoe is on the other foot" am the United stales will be force; to put dollars Into world circula lion or face ft elut in America! production and an economic re cession. The British source said, that Bri tain is not the only country whosi supply of dollars—without whicl purchases cannot foe made in th United States—is running short. If their dollar supply become exhausted, he said, they simp) will have tq stop buying from the United States. ' Thus, he emphasized, the United EtiHes stands to lose as much ns the foreign countries if ftirllior • dollar supplies sire not made available to foreign purchasers. 'The approach," lie insisted, "should not be made by tile importing' countries." While offering no suggestion as to what the United States should do about Die situation there has been talk in British financial circles that the best approach wou'/l be to make dollars more easily convertible^ into sterling and other currencies. This outline of Britain's position on the question of Ti new dollar loan came as the issue was raised 'in the British labor party's conference at Margate where left- wind critics have expressed feai that the United States would attack stiff political conditions any iie\v loan. Britain, currently, is engaged in major trade negotiations with Rus sia in an effort to open up u nev source of supply which might fed raw : materials into her econom. without the necessity of laying on American dollars at high Amerl can prices.- Named in Probe Ex-O\Vl olTlcinl Lowell Mcllcll, above, was named by Hep, J, Parncll Thomas, of New Jersey, as (he government agent who ordered aclor Kobert Taylor lo play leading lole in Ihe movie, "Song of Russia," in 1D13, despite Ihe actor's objection Ihnt the film was pro-Cumimmist.
