MONDAY, AUGUST 26, 1963 ALTON EVENING PAGE NINE *-I Wtf. MUM* Balance of Payments Is Key Issue By SAM tUWSOfr Af ttitolneM taw* A«nljrjrt NKW YOttK (AP)-A problem that everi ,thc experts differ in evaluating Jfet alone solving—the deficit In the U.S. balance of payments—has been dominating much of the financial and congressional hews in recent dflys. And It's no wonder If many ordinary citizens are- stumped. But to varying degrees the bal* nnce of payments between this country and the rest of the world Is Influencing: —the cost of borrowing at the bank and the Interest charges on the federal debt (paid In the long run by the citizen taxpayer); —The amount of U.S. economic nnd military aid Congress will vote for other nations; —The protection of the gold reserves that guarantee the good name of the dollar In world niono- tnry capitals; , Tariff IHMIA —The U.S. tariffs that some American Industries say should be raised and those of other nations that the U.S. government Is protesting because they keep American 'products out. In all of these three are other factors—economic -.stresses,' sectional goals or problems, domestic politics or international conflicts. But the stubborn balance of payments deficit plays a role In each. The nation's balance of payments is roughly like your month ly bank statement. For. you it's how your deposits slack up against the checks you write. For your government it's bow the receipts of dollars from abroad for American exports, re turn on investments, repayment ol loans, and so on stack up against the dollars that go abroad for inv ports, foreign aid, military eslab Mshments, investments in plants or securiies, travel. Since 1958 each year has seen more dollars going out the conn try than came back. The defici was a little lower last year, I still above $2 billion, but has spurted again' this year. To com bat this buildup in surplus dol lars abroad! that could be turned in for U.S. gold if foreigners ge worried abW the future worth o Yankee dollars, • the U.S. govern ment through its various agen cies has: ' . Interest Hike —Raised the interest on short term loans. This tends to keen'in vestment: funds' at home but'alsc raiseq 1 the • ca rrying chaiige on the growing federal.'debits'.we! as tending to make business boi rowing more expensive—and con ceivably could spill ovor into long term .borrowings, such as mor gages and school bond issues, —Tried to increase the existin surplus of U.S. exports over in ports. This flared into the chick en,war* when the European com mon market boosted the levy o American frozen fowl — and, o GETTING READY Mrs. Linda Hell, left, sponsor, and Sept. 3.

Webb lolcl police he was driving east on Dooley Drive when the child rode into the left rear bumper of his car on Dooley Drive near Henry St. List Committees For Flower Show ho other side of the coin, led he steel industry to protest that ow American tariffs let foreign steel flood local rrmrkes while old-time American steel export; markets have been lost. —Asked a tax on the purchase iy Americans of foreign securities from foreigners. This is bitterly opposed by many financial nterrests in hearings before con jress. And the fact that foreign aid usually approximates or exceeds the U.S. deficit in the balance of payments has been a strong talking point for its opponents. Foreign aid. is tied closely to U.S. international and defense policies. But it probably would win few popularity contests with taxpaysrs. So.the balance of payments deficit gives Congress a good • excuse for cutting it. All of these maneuvers in recent days may have given little assurance that the basic problem of the deficit is being solved.
