THURSDAY, JANUARY 11, 1940 BLYTHEVn,LE.(AKK.)' COimrP.R JTOWS" U. S. Planes On Way To Britain Britain, France Able To Buy Oulrighi fn American Markets By .MII.TON liKONN'lvll KEA .Service Stilt Correspondent LONDON. Jan. 11.—England niul Prance are fighting tins war will) Nazi Germany not only with lead and slee), but also with golden bullets, Both Allies apparently are ;,o well .supplied with money tlmt the Am'crlctm cash-and-carry nvojrnm will not, hurt or delay them in sc'[> curing any kind of food, raw m<i- teriiils or manufactured arlieles that they wish to purchase In Uiiitcxl states markets for a very long period. It is estimated that Britain holds about $735,000.000 of marketable American securities. France holds about $185,00.000. The Allies are thought to have about $000.000.000 in balances in America arid about $1.000.000,000 in direct investments not so readily negotiable. Canada ho!ds about $1,000.- cao.OOO worth of assets In the U. S. Safe and secure here in London there is a gold supply nlso which exceeds, what Britain possessed in 1311. British gold stocks in 1914 were 35.4CO.OOO ounces; in September, 1939, they were GO million ounces. As gold has grown in price, this means that the gold is worth about SI.420,000.00. Fur thermore, in ian the flow of new gold from British mines per an[' mini was worlh $240.000.000. Non- it is $704.000.000. BATTLE IS FIERCEST IN THE BALKANS But It is not only in a friendly mnrket, like thai of the United States that the British and French are using golden bullets. There they meet with no enemy competition. The battle really rages fast and .furious in the Balkans where Gei• many, by barter arrangements' and threats, is trying to force the countries of southeastern Europe to supply her with goods and raw materials. There are British and French " purchasing agents throughout the Balkans. Their object is to buy for cash what the Germans want to secure by barter—timber, ore. grain, hides, fibres. When and if (lie deal is closed, the Allied bujei has the goods warehoused undci the pretext .that he is unable, at j present tp. obtain quick transport I, to Engltmcl or prance. The'raw > materials arc thus locked a«aj from the Nazi grasp. Tile Balkans in their turn get from the buyers either sterling or dollars. With this they buy American cotton which they badly need. And England "kindly" arranges to convoy their cotton for thein. The Allies have plenty of money to ranform to U. S. "cash-and-carry" laws. Their mnln trouble is finding enoimh ships to carry the material they »uy.
