Insurance policies. Devaluation does this officially, as inflation already has don« It unofficially. Fear that this Is comiii? shortly after the British election next week has both the British nnrt French jittery. Rumors spread that If the Conservatives win in EiiBland they will jet the [jtnmd sterling free to seek Us own level—officially this wouldn't be devaluation, but UK effect would be the same, What might happen Is shown In this: officially the pound Is worth $2.80, but In Switzerland H Is quoted at 12 32. Inflation in France has the Franc so shaky that Die dollar buys 433 to 440 francs on the Paris black market, in contrast to the "olficlal 350 Franc rate. The price of cold in the "f'pn" market In Paris has climbed $8 In three months to 548 an ounce. The official rate Is J3S an ounce. PrlKht- ened French citizens will pay 548 in fenri of inflation and devaluation. Rumor puts French devaluation, If It comes, at around 10 to 15 per cent. be cheaper In terms of dollars, and therefore more competitive In the world markets, But the devaluation of 1949 showed that shortly European prices rose again and wiped out any saving. There arc many causes for thrse Jitters In Europe.

Frenchmen fear the fear that lends them to hoard gold. Some say this caused the recent fluctuation In the price of raw wool in the Australian auctions. Europeans, who were afraid to hold onto their money, were turning It Into wool. To Americans. European devaluation would mean that exporters could get more pounds or Francs for American goods. For a time the price of goods made in Europe would . price of many of their products will thus tend to rise too high for competition in world markets.
