Under present plans the govern merit will provide the country's banks with money and credit in such a measure that they will be willing to push it out into business with little fear of impairing their liquidity. Will Reduce Rau The government-owned Recon Btruction Finance corporation, it was understood, will agree to re duce from 4% to. 4 per cent the interest rate on $800,000,000 now loaned to banks. New loans woulc be encouraged by the lower rate The federal reserve banks at the same time will increase their re discounts of member bank paper and collateral not eligible for this process would be taken over by the RFC to make direct loans to the banks, it was understood. Government officials said Thurs day night that banks would have to furnish "voluntary" assistance in extending Additional credit to business. It was considered significant however, that the government itself is a stockholder inhnearly 10( banks -and it was believed this connection might result in government action to induce bSnis to increase business loans. federal reserve banks this week poured $40,000,000 additional', credit into business add banking channels, partly thru open aferket purchases of $35,000,000 in United States government bonds.

Without the Insurance provisions at the present time, many ianks have refused to increase .oans for business. They did this :o stay in a liquid position to meet possible depositor demands. With an insurance of deposits they will not have' to remain so liquid because fears of runs will- be dissipated. Treasury officials Friday virtual- y completed the machinery for the bank deposit insurance corporation now being set up to administer the program. Under the law, Comp- roller of Currency O'Connor will serve as -a director along'with two others appointed by. President Roosevelt. The president is expected to announce his selections Tuesday and speculation, on appointees includes the name of Walter J. Cummings, special assistant to Secrelary of Treasury Woodin. Cummings has handled the treasury's bank reopening plan and has his finger on the entire banking situation.

Says Nazis Will Fight Decomposition' ' NUREMBERG, Germany, (ED— Chancellor Adolf Hitler, in a proclamation- to his national socialist party Friday, characterized Jews as a "ferment of decomposition in the life of nations." •The proclamation indicated that Hitler believed the "ferment" was threatening insidiously to cause the collapse of the western worldi Against such' collapse, he said, •Ms nazis had .fought and would continue to fight with "ferocious determination." The proclamation was the one Hitler had promised to his party, gathered here in hundreds of cheering thousands for its "victory" convention, t.hfe first since 1929.

NRA Chief Is Cutting Off Internal Foes WASHINGTON <U.E>—A shakeup of executives of the national recov. ery administration impended Friday as Hugh S. Johnson, Nit A chief made plans to shift his organization to cope with the fast changing nature of its problems and objectives. The resignation of Dudley Gates, assistant administrator for industry, was a fore-runner of changes to come. The impending shake-up will include not only men not wholly in the spirit of the recovery drive but those whose jobs are done. John M. Hancock. NRA executive officer, will leave Saturday after a summer -spent in coordinating industrial codes. Hancock intended to stay only a month but remained at Johnson's request. Hancock's retirement ushers in a new phase of NR/''i'ciiyity; This 'deals -with--the application 1?r'c0&fes to industries which have not come forward voluntarily. Friday was the last day for submission of codes and President Roosevelt may now summon lagging industries to hearings in preparation for imposing codes upon them if agreements are possible no other way. • The actual story of the disagreements which led to Gates' resignation goes back almost to the first day he came to Washington to act as Johnson's right hand man in contacts with industrial leaders. Gates, a tall, deeply tanned man of 45, got into a controversy with representatives of labor interests by announcing that collective bargaining was not necessary in the ^preparation of codes. The row never developed any great intensity, but was indicative of the strife which marked Gates' service thru- out his connection with the NRA. When Johnson was moving every force at his command to start the presidentjal reemployment agreements Gates, without" previous intimation of. his intention, calmly recommended at a staff' meeting that the whole plan be abandoned.
