HUGE EXPANSION OF CREDIT SEEN IN MONEY ACTION Dollar Stabilization in Terms of Foreign Currencies Accomplished. By CLAUDE A. JAGGER Associated Jpress Financial Kdltqr (CopyriRhl, 1934, by The Associated Tress.) NEW YORK, Feb. 1. (.T)--President Roosevelt's proclamation devaluing the dollar approximately 41 per cent, as understood by Wall street monetary authorities, has virtually restored the dollar to the international gold standard and opened the way to a huge potential credit expansion. It 13 believed that stabilization of the dollar in torms of principal foreign currencies has probably been largely accomplished. How rapidly credit expansion will work will depend upon the manner in which the treasury uses the increase in country's gold supply and upon the pace of improvement in business. Credit expansion, bankers say, requires confidence on the part of businessmen that they con use credit profitably, and this confidence should grow, as recovery progresses. Bonk Deposits Grow. As bank credit expands, bank deposits grow, and as the turnover of bank deposits increases, that is, as check settlements accelerate, pcices normally rise. The wartime expansion of credit brought sharp increases in commodity prices. The more recent boomtime credit growth of 1028-29 was reflected rather in a Jump in real estate and security prices than in staple goods. How the treasury will use th| more than ?2,700,000,000 In gold "profit" resulting from the decrease in the gold dollar remains to be seen. Its first move has been to create a 52,000,000,000 stabilization fund, to stabilize the dollar in the foreign ixchange market, and to stabilize the price of government securities. Addition to StocU. The potentialities of this big addition to the nation's monetary gold stock, it is pointed out, may be seen in the fact that an increase in. the country's gold of nearly $2,400,000,000 from 1914 to 1920 was accompanied by a jump in bank credit of more than $36,000,000,000. Furthermore, banking authorities explain, such an increase in gold would support a theoretical maximum increase, according to the workings of our banking system, of several times that. . The action of the president in authorizing: tne treasury both tu buy and sell gold at ?35 an ounce, in the opinion of foreign exchange experts, may largely solve the problem of stabilizing the dollar, particularly insofar as the gold countries are concerned. It is therefore possible that the atabilization fund may not have to devote much attcn- lon to he internadonal money market and may concentrate upon domestic problems. Big Question Mark. The big question mark in the international field, is the pound .sterling, which is not on the gold standard, so its relation to the dollar is not automatically established by the hinging of the.dollar to gold at a price of $35 an ounce. The impression prevails in Wall Street international banking quarters that temporarily, at least, some sort of tacit, Informal truce has been reached between American and British authorities to keep the pound sterling close to $5. The immediate prospect Is, in the belief of exchange quarters here, that the pound must either advance federal reserve might sell gold for export until the reverse took place. Movements Barred. Since last April, normal gold movements to and from the United States have been barred. With no price in this country at which foreign gold would be bought, it has been necessary first for the R. F. C., then the treasury acting thrpugh the federal reserve, to buy gold abroad to keep the dollar from rising. Now, presumably, the process will take place automatically. The normal workings of the international gold standard, however, will be found complicated by the, fact that the Bank of France is the only Important foreign central bank still buying- and selling gold bars at a fixed price. The other source of gold, limited chiefly to Squth American production, is the London free market. If the flow of capital toward the United States becomes extraordinarily large, it may much more than absorb the offerings in the London market, and make such'inroads into the reserves of the Bank of France that the bank would cease to sell gold freely, which would be tantamount to quitting the international gold standard. In the belief of some monetary authorities, that would cause such international monetary chaos that It would quickly bring an International stabilization agreement. NO ACTION TAKEN ON LONG OUSTER Senate Committee Unable to Act on Petitions From Louisiana. WASHINGTON, Feb. 1. (.VI-- TliP senate elections committee decided today petitions seeking the ouster from the senate of Senators Long: and Ovcrton of Louisiana diri not present issues "which the committee or the senate could take cognizance of." The committee decided, however, to conduct hearings within the next 10 days to permit those socking rr- moval of the two senators to nrgue the "sufficiency of their complaints." Chairman George (D., Ga.) announced the decision following an executive session. Ouster of Long has been asked in petitions by Louisiana citterns charging him with personal and political corruption. The women's committee of Louisiana, also has asked for unseating of Overton on the ground that he must be held responsible for corruption in his election. To Discuss Progress of Drive for Wild Life Restoration WASHINGTON, Feb. 1. UP)--A half dozen o£ the government's principal figures interested In game conservation will meet Saturday with President Roosevelt's committee on wild life restoration to discuss progress made on the problem to date. The group will include Secretaries Wallace, Roper and Ickes; Harry L. Hopkins, relief administrator; Lewis W. Douglas, budget director, and Senator Walcott of Connecticut, chairman of the special senate committee on wild life resources. Other members of the committee are J. N. Darling of Des Moines, Iowa, and Prof. Madison, Wis. Aldo Leopold of '33 Rayon Consumption Broke All Time Record · NEW YORK -- Production and consumption of rayon yarn for the year 1S33 arc pointed to by many observers as a strong indication of the gradual, and in this instance emphatic, business upswing. According to figures compiled by the Textile Organori; output of rayon last year aggregated 207,578,000 pounds, or 54 per cent above the 1932 total of 134,714,000 pounds and 45 per cent greater than the previous record year 1931. Hence, 1933 broke the all-time record. "As a result," adds the publication, "the Industry continues to be In a most healthy state of balance. Classification by process shows that 76.4 per cent of the 1933 output was produced by the viscose process, 17.3 per cent was acetate and 6.3 all other processes.

Finholt, pioneer settler of the county, who died at the Lutheran hospital In La Crosse. Services wore held at the Canoe'Ridge Lutheran church, with the Rev. Alfred Bretie- aen, officiating. Mr. Finholt was born in Christiana, Norway, and settled In Wlnneshlek county in 1879. Eight children survive, ' Ole, Dunn Center, N. Dak.; Louis, Decorah; Edward, Austin, Minn.! Oscar, Helmer and John of Pleasant township; Mrs. Henry Quenrud, Allamakee county and Mrs. William Hanson of Pleasant township. against the dollar, or decline in terms of the French gold franc, the latter being equivalent to an increase in the London gold price.The new gold value ot the dollar fixes a parity for the French franc at about 6.63 cents. On the basis of yesterday's pound-franc rate, this would mean a price for the pound sterling in terms of our currency of about $5.27. If the pound were to decline to about §5, It would have to decline against Paris from yes- terday'B rate of about 79 ',4 franca to roughly 75% francs. Problem of Adjusting. The problem o£ the dollar's adjusting itself to its indicated international value is complicated by two factors. First, there is the possibility of a large influx o£ fugitive domestic capital now abroad, and ·the return of the normal foreign investment Jn American securities, which might reach proportions unmanageable in the foreign exchange market. Secondly, there is the unknown quantity of what action foreign authorities may take to defend their positions. The new position of the dollar places it more closely to the old gold standard than the present position of sterling ia, foreign exchange authorities say. The old gold standard, permitting the sale or purchase of international gold at a fixed price, places the parity of exchange in terms of other currencies under automatic control. For instance, if the dollar holds well above its new gold parity, it will be profitable for banks to ship gold from Paris to London.
