Rcosevelt will be his own Secre- ] tary of the Treasury and dictator of the American monetary' policy. . I The man wlio will - carry* out his plans is Henry Morgenthau, • the Treasury's new Acting Sec-1 retary. '.' I Foreseeing the necessity of a free hand in drilling with thr currency, Roosevelt originally chose, William H. Woodin, a close friend! whose loyalty he could depend] upon, for the imiwrtarit Treasury i post. Woodin stuck to his belief in the old-fashioned dollar, though j his indefinite leave of absence was] due to poor health rather than, difference of opinion. 1 . ^Now the President has not only I a' close, friend bossing the Treas- ' ury. He has also a man who be-1 lieves in • the present gold purchase plan as n means of driving up prices as »ell ns In the com-1 modity or "rubber" dollar to which the administration 1s unofficially committed. ! To place Morgenthau there he i had to release Undersecretary Dean Acheson. :'a "sound money" advocate \vho 'opposed the new policies. • Morgenthau's experience with heavv finance has been gained chiefly in his now relinquished post as chief of the two-billion dollar Farm Credit Administration. But he Is a close associate of • Professor George :'P. Warren of i Cornell,-Roosevelt's chief ^financial An cx-\ ife at 11 years adviser. Both men have long been prominent in the agricultural affairs of New York state. Unless and until Congress interferes, the supreme triumvirate guiding the future of the American dollar will be Roosevelt, Mor- genthau and Warren. Morgenthau's farm paper, the American Agriculturist, has consistently favored dollar devaluation and the Warren plan. That plan calls for restoration of prices to the level at which they were when the bulk of outstanding] debts were ol the dollar accordingly and a subsequent fluctuating value for the dollar to be based on the commodity price level.
