THE NORTH ADAMS EVENING TRANSCRIPT, FRIDAY, JCNE >«, IBM PAOB KUtT 18,000 YOUTHS ffl FORESTRY CAMPS Civilian Corps Members Transf erred From Army Camps to New England . [Woods. Beaton, June 30—Mor» than 18,000 members of the civilian conservation corps have been, moved from army conditioning centers to reforestation camps In the six New England states, M»j. Gen. fox Conner, commandant of the first corps army area., announces. The contingents number 85 companies of New England recruits, and 10 companies composed of 2,000 war veterans from the third corps area In Maryland. Conner expressed satisfaction at the rapid mobilization and pointed out that the objective was reached a day In advance of the date set by the war department. Because of the heavy demand made on regular army officers and enlisted men at the five garrisons who have been assigned to duty at the 83 conservation corps camps throughout New England, Conner said It had been necessary to retain small units of the corps at Army posts to supplement the depleted regular army personnel. The first corps area command already has commenced conditioning of 1,700 New England war veterans who began enrolling at army registration centers Monday. Moose Dance Tonight.—adv.

Washington (By Paul Mallon) GUARANTEE— There Is plenty of phertagling backstage yet on this bank guarantee plan. Obstacles are being stealthily placed in the way of administering It. Strong pressure Is being exerted. There is half a chance the plan will never go into effect January 1 as the law provides. The opposition la rooted in the larger banks. It Is not confined to New York city. The better banks In all cities of size hate to see themselves placed on the same basis of security as weaker banks. They are counting on unexpected help soon from some of their country brethren. If f. sufficient number of rural banks find themselves unable to meet the .government's terms on a guarantee Iliey will turn against It. The law was enacted for Ihclr benefit. If they do not want It they can kill It yet. • Theoretically the law cannbt be sidestepped unless it is reoealed. Ac- iually the treasury will be able to Tmd a way to get around It temporarily If it finds such a course necessary. Congress meets about .he time the law is supposed to go nto effect. The treasury could suspend enforcement pending repeal. There would be no surprise In the ilghest financial elides here If hlngs should work out that way. • • • .DEBTS — Some of the bos's who sit in Mr. Roosevelt's knee believe a pedal session of Congress may be required In October to handle the war debt settlements. A certain far western senator Is o sure of It he has arranged his personal plans with that in view. He ' up Ms Washington home and Is returning lo his home state for only six weeks. The conclusion. appears to be premature. The settlements must be arranged before Congress can be called to consider them. FICTION—There Is considerable Ill-feeling underneath the surface between the Industrial control and public works setups. The appointment of Sawyer Instead of Hugh Johnson's man, Spalding, as head of the public works end has left Sawyer and Johnson looking daggers at each other. That Is one reason why the public works division was recently movc3 over to the interior department and away from the commerce department where the industrial control organization Is housed. They will get along better separately. fiord account. They blow how to break the front page. It Is the first time the government has gone to such expense for publicity. But It Is In keeping with the New Deal which has brought nearly perfect publicity lo Washington. • * • EXCHANGE—These screams of foreign nations against our-currency manipulation are laughable. You would think we were taking a shameless advantage of them. At $1.25 the British pound Is just about 25 cents below What it was when we were bolh on the gold standard. That means Britain has about 25 cents more of a trade advantage than she had normally. • • • FINLAND—One reason Finland has acted so decently about her war debt is that it lf> not exactly a war debt, The loan was made after the war so she could establish her republic. That is why you saw the Finnish minister go off on a vacation Instead of accepting the State Department's Invitation to be the first to negotiate. • • • SUGAR—Tills playing around the administration has been doing on the sugar question Is based on the hope ot getting ft marketing agreement by October 1. The objections it has run Into Indicate the hope may not be realized. The Inside figure they are working on calls for a two million ton quota for Cuba. The work does overlap. not c"".?!!c! or MARYLAND—A sovereign stale has sent a lobbyist quietly to Washington. He Is disguised on the payroll of the Maryland state roads con; mission. But Gov. Ritchie sent him here to see that Maryland gets he Khar* of all the melons the federa government is cutting. That Is hi sole duty. The reason behind It Is that th Maryland congressional delegation was not successful In getting goo treatment out of the administration It was one of the stop Roosevel states. Its legislators were too bus with other matters here to Ibbb before the government departments The first result of Maryland lob bying is that slate received $2,830,00 for army ]x>st reconstruction within her borders. * • * PUBLICITY—There Is a good rea son why you see Hugh Johnson" industrial control setup advertised 01 the front pages every day. He went out and bought an ex perienced Industrial publicity outfit Most of the men were with Ayer's he Philadelphia advertising agencj which handles such accounts as Ford Two were working on the Ayer's NOTES—The funny part about Gov. Ritchie sending a lobbyist to Washington IE that Ritchie is a states' rights man and spurned Federal benevolence heretofore ... He figures now that Inasmuch as the gravy bowl Is being passed around he Will Insist on his full share. . . The ;hing to remember about the bank guarantee Is that neither Mr. Roosevelt, Woodin nor Douglas Is in favor of it. . . They can hardly be expected jo break their necks enforcing It. . . The campaign Collier's is carrying on against Huey Long may force a resumption of the Senate investigation . Insiders continue to marvel at Huey's Influence. . . "Die last R. P. C., figures show he got $32,000,000 for two New Orleans ranks. . . That is more than anyone else got.

To Become American Dublin, June 30—(A.P.I—John McCormack, noted tenor, has given up his Irish home, Moore Park, Mon- osterevan. Friends say he Intends to Ive In the United States. New York (By James McMullln) MOLEY _ r-ofessor Raymond Moley has two jobs to do at London. Tlie first Is to Invite direct European cooperation with the Roosevelt recovery program He will suggest that purchasing power 1 could be built up everywhere by universal adoption of shorter working week principles. He will also intimate that we should be happy to see the equivalent of 15 per cent currency devaluation undertaken by -the leading nations acting In harmony. These suggestions will be dumped In the ash heap—perhaps politely— by the French and others.^ Then tils second Job will be to bunt up the Conference in a nice way. The main object will be to do It so the United States will not have to take the rap in the world's eyes. New Yorkers with French connections hear It will take Houdlni diplomacy to get by with this. In any case Moley will probably be on .his way home within ten days or two weeks. On 3une 16th this column predicted that he would be en route to-Europe within a week or ten days. He actually left June 21st. • * • CURRENCIES — There will be veiled threats of 30 per cent domestic devaluation If Europe doesn't see things our way. That is probably coming but not yet. It will be saved for emergencies which may_,develop —such as French abandonment of gold. New Yori has an ear very close to the ground for that step. It Is almost certainly Doming despite official denials and will probably come very suddenly. Even the best authorities here are puraled about the consequences. The most likely prospect Is a free-for-all to keep currencies low. We are better armed for such a contest than other nations but a huge flight to the dollar is possible. That would complicate efforts to keep prices moving up. ' • * • French financial Interests are behind their government's long-shot attempt to keep the franc on a gold >ase. They are trying hard to win British support. Early In the conference the British were endeavoring to Ine up the French as economic allies. Now the shoe Is on the other foot. France especially •wants Britain to iltch the pound to the franc. If she consents England will hear nothing about France's sacred security requirements for some time. The French are willing to go so far as to BERKSHIRE PLAYHOUSE »t Stockbrldge, MUM. T. COWLES STRICKLAND, director OPENING MONDAY, JULY 3 presents XATHERINE GREY — in — THE FIRST MRS. FRASER BY ST.

Therefore you will sec her working hard to prevent a bust-up. NOVELTY—A New York bank recently received a letter from an important French correspondent complaining sadly that the American delegation seems determined not to give anything without getting something definite In return. The French writer really seemed to feel It wasn't jiportlng of us not to play as Europe expected from |wst experience. GOLD — Preparations ha-e been secretly made In banking channels for a "free" gold market here. It could go into action overnight. It. would serve as heavy artillery In a currency year by running up the I premium on gold in terms of dollars It could easily be controlled to meet situations as they develop. Gold runs In France. Holland and Switzerland have been much more st.-ipus than reports indicate. The two smaller nations are just about ready to give up the fight. So fai France has strong-armed them into holding fast but the break may come any time now. New York experts predict the French will take the plunge when the.v arc due to repay their recent loan from England if not before. ... APPEAL—British authorities are trying hard to keep sterling from Ro- ing abroad. They have even appealed to the New York Stock Exchange not lo encourage British purchases of American securities. Quite a bit of buying has been coming trom that source. Ings—1» *, re*l go-getter.
