FAGE B—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), THURSDAY, DEC. 15, IMS DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Snyder And Eccles Are Asked To Cease Their "Public Squabbling;" Eccles Wants To Discourage Dumping Government Bonds; Snyder Says Congress Is Re sponsible For Inflation Trends. Washington—The inflation between secretary of the Treasury Snyder and Federal Reserve dynamo Marriner Eecles attracted headlines a few days ago. But when the two men met behind the closed doors of a Senate committee, the final results of the feud were hushed up. It was Ijsnyder who, perhaps knowing h«_ would' be no match for the shrewd and experienced Eccles. insisted on a closed-door meeting. However, here is what happened. Present at the Senate session was Tom McOabe, popular, easygoing Federal Reserve chairman who agrees -with Snyder on most things, and who pleaded with both Eccles and Snyder to cease their "public squabbling" because of repercussions on business and the stock market. Eccles shot back that stock- market reaction to his disrpiute with Snyder was far outweighed by the future economic and financial welfare of the nation. It would -be better to have a showdown now, public or otherwise, he said, rather than wait until inflation hits us. "The press has made this a personal dispute between Secretary Snyder and myself, but It's not that at all," Eccles declared. "It's a question of deep, fundamental Policy that affects the future welfare of every man, woman and child in the United States. The Federal Reserve system cannot adequately carry out its obligation to control inflationary trends while the Treasury continues to borrow at fixed, low interest charges." The interest rate (now averaging about 2.2 per cent on long- and short-term government secur- should be somewhat higher Watched by Doctors SCULLY, FJorist Flower* for Erery OccMlon 4*0 BALDWIN ST.

Also, - It should be more flexible, he argued, so the Federal Reserve Board could use it as a lever to prevent either an overexpansion or a tightening of bank credit. Interest rates on government securities naturally influence the rates on commercial loans, Eccles pointed out, and therefore the quantity of such credit—-which the Reserve System is expected to control. Well, the Treasury has obligations, also," argued Snyder. "Let the interest rate go up on government bonds and there will be a howl fro m farmers and other groups, who will then have to pay higher financing charges on private loans and mortgages." Turning to Senator Douglas of Illinois, chairman ot tho meeting, Snyder remarked that Congrona WUB chiefly responsible for Inflation trends "Jnfutlon oriirinntcft in the Congress," he commented, tartly "If Congress votes io appropriate great sums of money nnd then fin't innn-riKi: taxi;» to balance thl« upending, you tire making Inflation. You can't build up big deficits without taking risks." Kobhlne IVter The Treasury chief added that the low interest th c government was paying on its bond issues represented that much of a Having to the taxpayer and helped to balance tho budget. However, Kccle.s shot back that It did nothing of the kind, but WM.'I a R<>b-Peter-to-Fay- Pnul policy that actually cost tho taxpayers more in tho long run. Low interest rates on government bonds often lend to dumping by big Investors, who prefer to reinvest their money In leas He- cure, but more profHablo commercial loans, he explained. Since the Federal itesorvc system Is required by law to buy up the bonds dumped on thc open rnnrket, thin further Innrea.iefi National Rank ro«c;rve« against which more Inflationary money Is then Issued.
