MONDAY, JUNK 21, 1948 British Believe U.S. Is Trying To Get Control of the Sacred Pound Sterling Through ERP (EDITOR'S NOTE: The author o; Ihe following disp«tch U chief diplomatic correspondent for the United Prrss In l/>nrion.> Hy R.

COURIER -_ Youth, j Dudley Lynch, Jr., - ! Enters Ministry treating Britain and oilier' Marshall Plan countries like "naughty children." M the British are right In their j condemnation of Die American at- | imide, then there is some substance to Sot-iet and Communist charges that ihe Marsnall Plan is "dollar imperialism." If they are wrong, then the United States xovernment—and especially its representatives here— is Kuilty ol a colossal blunder in publicity, u allowed this misundcr- siamling—if it i,e that--to stand long toward the crisis stage. Even if the final terms reached by negotiators in Washington :nv .satisfactory, the miSRiviiiKS o! a large segment of the British public will not be erased. This Ksvie, like Palestine before it. is a ease where the British and American objective-s are the same. Bungling r,l:ii]M-il But bungling, combined with Complete official disregard for put>- Hic opinion, created a situation which gives the impression of a serious deadlock or open break. "The pound sterling crisis" is a result of United States' negotiations with all Marshall Plan countries on terms for receiving aid. The negotiations are supposed to be secret, and the draft agreement presented to the Europeans has not been published officially. But like so many other government attempts to keep things secret during negotiations, this one failed and various versions of the American conditions have been published. A condition which raised hob witli Anglo-American relations for days i s one tmtier which the British believe they would be giving: the United States the right to demand devaluation of the pound. Nothing could be designed to • make the Britisher see red more "quickly. Like, the Bank of England, the royal family or the British Navy, the pound is considered inviolate by the average Britisher. Stripped of its technicalities, the problem is this: The of ficial-rate of exchange for the British pound is 54.03-1.2 But abroad the pound brings less. In New York, for example, pounds can be bought for less than »3. American officials have felt for a ; long lime that the British should devalue the pound officially to bring it down closer to the open market j price. The highest American officials • are convinced the British eventual- • ly will have to devalue the pound but Sir Stafford Cripps, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, is dead .set against it. Equalization Asked There is a clause in the European Recovery Act as passed by Con- i gross which calls for each recipient, country to take, steps to stabilize ! currencies and "establish or main-1 tain a valid rate of exchange." In translating this obligation into specific terms in bilateral agreements, however, the deadlock has been reached. f^j Britain has many supporters fcinong the Europeans in objecting to signing any agreement thai would give an impression"the United States could dictate orders for devaluation. The United Press asked all of the ERP countries their attitude on the devaluation condition. Surprisingly, not one would comment. Likewise not one would say that it is :iot a fundamental issue, a.> some. American officials claim. Unle-ss Sir Oliver Pranks.
