Newspaper Publishers Ass'n THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1949 Red Star Over Chungking Members of the Chinese Nationalist government, now fleeing toward Chengtu from Chungking, may not be familiar with the American saying to the effect that three moves are as bad as a fire. But theyjnust feel despairingly that their* world is burning down, for Uiis is the third time within the year that a Nationalist capital has fallen before the communist armies. Their despair must be all the deeper when they think back to the years when Generalissimo Chiang Kai-«hek placed his government in Chungking and kept it there, succesfully defying the might of the Japanese Imperial Army. He held it not for months but for years. This time it has been taken from him in a period of weeks. If China was woefully weak compared with Japan, 'the Nationalist regime is far weaker compared with the Chinese communists. It is so feeble, indeed, that it will in all probability be driven out of Chengtu within a few weeks at most. The time Is coming when the Nationalist government will have to seek refuge on Formosa. Resistance to the communist forces cannot be maintained on the mainland much longer It is significant that Chou En-Lai, the communist foreign minster, 'has already warned the French not to harbor Nationalist military units in French Indo- China. The end cannot be far away now. Only a miracle, or several of them, could have saved Nationalist China after Canton fell. They have not come to pass. The still greater miracles that would have to come in order to reverse the tide, at this late date j are hardly worth hoping for. Soon all China will be under communist domination. The Eccles Charges Sharp criticism of government fiscal policies before a congressional subcommittee focuses attention anew on the divided and often conflicting responsibilities of the Treasury Department and Federal Reserve Board in the operation of the monetary system. The controversy has political as well as economic implications, coupled to a demand for legislation to concentrate control of national credit in one authority. Sparking the present flarcup is the charge by Marriner S. Eccles, member and former chairman of Federal Reserve Board, that the Treasury Department is inviting economic disaster by its "cheap money bias." Hi« further statement that the Truman administration Is making the Federal Re- servo Systfm "an engine of inflation" was tantamount to a declaration, which others have made in the past, that the Treasury Department dominates the Federal Reserve Board. Those with limited knowledge of how the monetary system works will better understand the controversy by recalling'ihat one of the primary functions of the Reserve Board is to keep credit and Interest rates adjusted to general business conditions. Credit Is restricted to stem inflation or ex- pnndnd to loosen the effects of deflation. As a means to these ends the Federal Bonrd In given authority over rediscount rates recommended by the 12 Federal Reserve banks and the reserve roquiro- mcntB of member banks. Open market purchasing and selling of securities is an additional device to decrease or increase the money supply. The Treasury is interested primarily in the government's fiscal problems rather than credit needs of business. But in times of heavy refunding operations such as the Treasury faces next month, the secretary, as u member of the Reserve Board, may be inclined to use his influence for keeping Interest rates low, though the business situation may counsel restriction of credit. The secretary's Influence with the Reserve Board Is large because If the board decides to soil government obligations and bankers' acceptances to make money scarce the Treasury, If it suits its purpose, can offset the effort by buying bonds and notes. The procedure, it has been pointed out, would enable a political party In power through the secretary, a political appointee, to forestall RoHorve Board checking of an Inflationary boom which the party desired continued until after an election. It is significant that Reserve Board Chairman Thomas B. McCabe, while endeavoring to counter Mr. Eccles' criticism of Treasury domination of the Reserve Board, refused to answer when asked if the board had not been overridden only a few days ago by the Treasury in connection with the interest, rate on the coming $56,000,000,000 refunding of the government debt. It is also significant that Mr. Eccles' contention that Congress either redefines the board's power to control the volume of bank credit or turn the whole responsibility over to the Treasury, wan virtually indorsed by President Sproul of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. But the fight may have only begun. Do You Remember?
