Brooks Hays (D-Ark) by about, 1,200 votes in the Nov. 4 election. At that time Blatnik wired Rayburn, contending Alford should bo regarded as an independent. In addition to the challenge, lo his right to be listed as a Democrat, Alford is due to run into a move on Jan. 7 aimed at denying him a House seat pending an in- vcsllgqtion into charges of irregularities in his ejection. Blatnik said he believes that Alford should be allowed to occupy Ills sept since he has received hi.s cerlificatc of eleclion. Bui Blalnik pdded he believes the House Elec- lipns Suboommitte should investigate Ihe eleclion. However, ho made }t clear Jo an interview he believes tliat under no cir cl -'mstanccs should Alford bo considered a Democrat since he ran as a write-in candidate and defeated the Democratic nominee.

But some doubts were expressed — chiefly in Franco, There, with devaluation of the franc and an austerity budget, the country fnced a more serious financial shakeup than other lands, But Ihe French position was re- Jieved somewhat by today's announcement it is receiving a 60- million-dollar loan from West Germany, and by reports i that other European states may come to France's assistance. British businessmen, sorting out tho convertibility' puzzle, were expecting no direct benefits but believed they will gain in the long run because n freer pound should give them a bigger share of world trade, Until the change today, anyone who sold goods to Biitain for pounds, for example, hud to pay more than the official rale to convert these pounde into dollqrs, West German marks or other currencies, As a result, such sellers tended to restrict their own foreign buying to counties which would accept pounds. Beginning today, tho foreign seller in Britain can take his pounds and convert them at. tho official riUe into marks if he wants to buy in West Germany, dollars if he wards to go into the U.S. market or p.ny other money ha needs or--wauls, Businessmen mostly welcomed the change, There also was expectation of more buying in the United Stales since, dollars would k° easier to get.
